  1. Far more mediocre than I expected. :scowl:
  2. Not suprised.
  3. Dude, it has Angelina Jolie in it. Of course it won't be good.
  4. I did not see good things coming of that film

    I saw it last night. There were a few good scenes, but it was over all not that great.

    Couldn't stand the Tomb Raider movies so I didn't expect much from this one.
  7. Have you ever seen Girl Interrupted? If so you can't say that she isn't an amazing actress. I am seeing Wanted tomorrow night.

    Honestly, she wasn't to bad. It's the movie as a whole that did not really work.

  9. On the contrary, I think she's a terrible actress. I can't think of a single movie she is in that I enjoy, including Girl Interrupted.

  11. She was genuinely disturbing in Girl Interrupted. Maybe the movie wasn't for you, but she was great in it.

    I'll pass.
  13. I saw in the trailer that they curve bullets by twisting the gun as you fire. I'm not quite sure physics works like that, so it pissed me off and I will not even consider seeing this movie.

    I don't mind over the top... but I do mind when they try to explain it and its completely wrong.

    I wasn't really planning on seeing it, but a bunch of friends wanted to last night so I tagged along. It was... interesting. Not well-made or well-acted, and many parts of it were so ridiculously over-the-top as to be almost groan-worthy (bullets poking out of foreheads in slow-mo is a notable example) but at least it was creative. Good amount of stuff I haven't ever seen before in these types of dumb action movies.

    Also notable for being only the second movie I can recall where Morgan Freeman plays the villain, the first being Lucky Number Slevin - which is infinitely better.

    Yea, I see your point .... curving a bullet is just silly.... what, did they see 'Bend it like Beckham', and think it would be cool if a bullet could be curved. :rollno:

    I'll wait until it comes to the local $2 theater. :smug:

    Thanks for the review ... even though it doesn't come as a surprise. ;)

    i'm just waiting for the stupid kids who think they can curve bullets and end up killing their friends.

    on a side note, i think i know who killed JFK........

  17. Angelina Jolie was good in Gia. She was great in Gia.

    She is terrible. So overrated. I guess I don't get it.
  20. It would have been nice if the movie just involved the guy messing up that bullet curving bit and shooting her in the head. Short film, but would have been better IMO!
