An average movie

Honestly, I had absolutely no idea what to expect from this flick beforehand. Indeed, everything about it sounded terribly generic (the title, the poster, the plot,…) but, eventually, I thought it was not bad at all. Of course, the story was little bit far-fetched and it tends to go over the top from time to time but, still, I thought it was a very well made and entertaining thriller. It was di... read more

My Cinema : Viewing & Rating : August 2015 (13 movies items)

"My Rating : 5.0=Average - A Blu Ray To Buy My Point Of View : the screenplay of this movie may not be very good and some scenes are very incredible but it's very entertaining and the suspence stays on from the beginning til the end and overall it's a guilty pleasure movie that we like to watch once awhile.

"Kurt Russell vs. pahat juntit. Jälleen kerran yksi esimerkki siitä, minkä takia ei kannata eksyä sille alueelle Yhdysvalloissa, joka on New Yorkin ja Los Angelesin välissä. J.T. Walshin hahmon kohtalo on uskomattoman tyydyttävä."

Of course, the story was little bit far-fetched and it tends to go over the top from time to time but, still, I thought it was a very well made and entertaining thriller. It was directed by Jonathan Mostow who would direct some big blockbusters like ‘Surrogates’ and the even bigger ‘Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines’ but this movie was actually better in my opinion. Indeed, usually, I have a hard time to care for those preposterous action-thrillers but, this one, even though it is not very well known, was actually really fun. Above all, I enjoyed how they constantl” read more
