Every movie that Jason Stratham is in is the same (you could say the same for every Guy Ritchie movie, too). That said, this one had a more far fetched and interesting premise and I wasn’t disappointed. Give it a shot.
This was fun, but not very original. Danny McBride’s character slays as an invincible and disloyal associate. Although it’s farcical throughout, the end takes farce to a new, not unenjoyable level.
Aside from the usual, ‘If you’ve seen one Woody Allen movie…’ this move also had the, ‘If you’ve seen one movie about a crazy love triangle’ thing. As far as movies with the word Barcelona in the title, I like Barcelona better than Vicky Cristina Barcelona. On the other hand, this one was much prettier to watch.
You know what you’re getting when you watch a movie like this. It wasn’t spectacular, but it was watchable, enjoyable even, in a Spy Games kind of way. Actually, I think this might have been Spy Games 2.
True Blood was exciting and creative for the first 8 or 9 episodes until it turned into Vampire Veronica Mars. For some reason, I didn’t pick up on the fact that the murders were the overarching theme of the show until it was too late. And then I just got mad because I learned to despise Veronica Mars something fierce.
I’m not going to review a Will Smith movie without noting my affection for him, so get that out of your head, but this was a dud. If you’ve seen Memento and any movie where someone is trying to do something to repent for something, you don’t really need to see Seven Pounds. If this movie was starring anyone else, it would be one star less.
Lots of people don’t like this movie, but it’s Coen Brothers, and I can’t help feeling that it was at least average. I think the people who don’t like it have forgotten what a Coen Brothers movie is. For every No Country, Raising Arizona, Big Lebowski, there’s a Lady Killers.
