A good movie

Since I kept hearing good things about this flick, I was really eager to watch it and I had some rather high expectations. Eventually, pretty much like 'High Fidelity', even though I liked it, I can't say I was blown away. I mean, you have a pretty cool cast (John Cusack, Minnie Driver, Alan Arkin, Dan Aykroyd, Joan Cusack, Hank Azaria, Jeremy Piven) and they all delivered some decent performances... read more

New Classic!

I've loved this movie since the first time I saw it in theathers and it's the movie that made John Cusak and Minnie Driver two of my all time favourite actors.

I love the premise of the movie and the jokes still crack me up ten years later. Joan Cusak is brillant in this film as well. I don't think there'll ever be a time that this isn't one of my all time favourite movies.

"Katsottu: 13.3.2012 Ihan kiinnostava kuvaus kyllästyneestä palkkatappajasta, joka palaa kotikyläänsä luokkakokouksen merkeissä. Yllättävää tässä oli se, että toimintakohtaukset näyttivät todella hyviltä. Kun ajattelee, että kyseessä on vain komedia, jossa on toimintaa. Erikoista. Muutenkin elokuvan huumori oli suhteellisen laadukasta ja se jaksoi ilahduttaa koko keston ajan. "

“Since I kept hearing good things about this flick, I was really eager to watch it and I had some rather high expectations.

I mean, you have a pretty cool cast (John Cusack, Minnie Driver, Alan Arkin, Dan Aykroyd, Joan Cusack, Hank Azaria, Jeremy Piven) and they all delivered some decent performances (Joan Cusack was just hilarious for example) and the whole concept was pretty neat (a hitman goes to his high-school reunion). I don't know, maybe it was too 'nice' for me, in the sense that there is nothing much at stake expect having a few laughs. Still, John Cusack was born to play such characters and he was just pitch-perfect and the whole thing was really fun to watch. To conclude, I'm not s” read more

30 Greatest Movie Fistfights (30 movies items)

" The Fighters: Martin Q Blank (John Cusack) vs. Felix LaPubelle (Benny 'The Jet' Urquidez) The Fight: Cheap and nasty - LaPubelle sneaks up on Blank at a high school reunion, while the latter is reminiscing over his old locker in a deserted corridor. The resulting bout is notable for a kick-ass soundtrack (English Beat's skank-tastic Mirror In The Bathroom, featuring the beautifully timed lyric "all my crimes are self-defence"), a meaty throat-kick from Blank, and a wincingly grimy fatality.
