A film no one needs to see; but one you'll hate to laugh at, because you probably will, at least once.

It's possibly the best version of the story, but that's not saying much. There is enough to this to make it watchable

Kate looks so damn good in leather. Maybe I was distracted; but I couldn't get into the story at all. I'm also not a fan of the whole vampire genre.

Good grief, it took a lot of effort to really get into this droll story full of characters you never really care about. Still, there are some well-constructed scenes and the music helped.

I did not see the appeal in this foreign flick. I tried to watch it a couple of times and could barely get through it. Kind of like "Cache"

Yes, that weird looking woman on the poster is Scarlett Johansson, and no we don't see any more skin than that. The cinematography was the only thing that saved it

Narc (2002)
As they say in 'Entourage' Jason Patric is intense. He is paired up with another intense actor, Ray Liotta. These guys aren't bad but the story seems stale and the color grading is pale, making this also a drab film to watch, but at least it fits with the story being told.

I think it was okay. Not your typical comic book movie, and I think that's the main reason it didn't get a great reception. Ang Lee is a damn fine director, he just apparently shouldn't be making comic book movies.

I'm not really sure what this film was trying to be. The acting was good and story was good; that's as much as I can put down without going into a series of questions. And I don't think that was the director's intent.

This film was trying too hard and didn't have resounding success. However, I still watched the entire thing and enjoyed what it was about. Gooding Jr does a fine job; but the supporting cast could have been a little more supportive.

I usually put one or two romantic comedies on here and this one certainly deserves a spot. Kate Hudson is adorable and and Matty McC is at least tolerable. Could have used a little more Goldberg though, that guy IS gold.

John Malcovich actually directs this impressive first feature for an actor/now director. While he isn't starring in it, the very talented Bardem is, and he is the highlight of this strange detective/revolution story.

Easily the least-likable of the trilogy. It's hard to top T2. The new baddie was cool and hot in that outfit. The kids brought it down a little and some of action seemed a little cheap.

Hell's Kitchen never looked so good, I mean bad. I don't know, but this film of an Irish immigrant family tugs at the heart and soul with such ease. Hounsou is someone to look for, too.
