... don't waste your time or money.
Why did it suck?
Slow, slow, slow. The friend that went with me actually fell asleep. Part of the dialog in a couple of places was terribly hard to understand. We both looked at each other and said, "What did they just say?!?!" Just not a very compelling story line for me nor did it have any energy. Just never drew me in.
Good premise, bad execution. I felt asleep during the movie too. It's not necessarily the lack of action but the movie's direction. Disjointed, nonsensical, trite, and just plain sucks.
I think they should of based the movie in another city, Mel trying to get that Boston accent down was terrible. I was born there and left 25 years ago and my wife tells me I still have the accent, an Australian trying it just doesn't cut it for me.
Damn. The previews made it look decent. Guess I'll wait for it on Netflix.
The reviews I have read and heard say it is just "OK". I sure as hell don't pay 10 bucks for a movie ticket to see something "OK".
I had high hopes. I saw it last night and was disappointed.
A lot of films are like that these days, the few seconds of previews they show are the only decent parts of the whole movie.
Damn, that's too bad. The basic premise looked solid, and I tend to like Mel's acting.
I saw it last night. It wasn't the best movie ever, but it wasn't terrible. I would just wait for it to come out on DVD.
Streamed it last night, It was not terrible, but it was not great
I always thought he was from the east coast. Anyone ever see the tv series?
Spoken by a man who attended the drive-in with the Flintstones. If you look quick during the intro ... you'll see him.

Pity, because it seemed, again by the previews, like it should have been pretty good. That's what previews are supposed to do though isnt it.
Ill wait until it comes out on DVD or on TV, but thats pretty much what I do anyway. Ever since Ive gotten the big screen and surround sound going to the theater just seems like a hassle and expense. After you get a popcorn and a drink you've spent enough to buy the movie on DVD or Blu ray. I can get as loud as I want it at home, the TV 60 inches and I dont have to deal with people talking or making noise. Win Win as far as Im concerned.
Gibson was born in NY and moved to Australia before he was a teenager. If you see the movie their are a couple of people who kind of have the accent thing going for them, most of the actors do not.
Talked with a couple of people at work today that had seen it and thought is was a really good movie. I'm still scratching my head at that. Different strokes.....
I don't know if I'd go all the way to "really good", but I saw it this past weekend and enjoyed it. Well, most of it; the goofy semi-hip-shooting Glock gunplay in the one scene...
Not many movies can make me jump in my seat, but this one gave me TWO really unexpected starts; just didn't see the action coming (or coming that quickly, at least). Had a lump in my throat during a few scenes, too.
All-in-all, not a bad flick, IMO...
Yep. That's why I hardly go see anything except movies that (to me) are a guarantee; Transformers 2 was the most recent.
Other than that, between Netflix & Redbox, I don't need to go to the movies anymore because the risk of wasting $20 is so high. If one of the movies from Netflix or Redbox sucks, I'm out a dollar for redbox, and less than that for netflix - and there have been plenty I've rented that the trailer was the best parts of the film.
They gave the entire movie away in the trailer anyway...
