An average movie

2 years, 8 months ago at Aug 25 12:00
Honestly, I wasn't expecting much from this movie and I thought it would be an average standard action flick but since I have a weak spot for Bruce Willis, I still wanted to check it out. Eventually, surprisingly, I have to admit it, it was not bad at all after all. This movie was directed by a rather obscure French director, Florent Emilio Siri, but I must say that he did a rather impressive job... read more

Moviewatcher122's 2014 Film Diary: February (50 movies items)

"February 27 "You know what cops do when they retire? They play golf. I don't want to play golf. I hate fucking golf." I decided to watch this movie expecting a typical action movie and got more out of this movie than I thought I would. It had some strong performances, solid direction and dark storytelling. The last 20 minutes of this movie were very suspenseful and had me on the edge of my seat. Not Bruce Willis' best movie, but it is his most underrated."

"The film starts off fine and has an okay, if a bit too complicated plot, but as it goes on the film becomes so nasty and revels in it's unending brutality, that it's not any fun to watch."

"Katsottu: 15.1.2014 DVD:ltä Bruce Willis (Die Hard) tekee yhden uransa parhaista roolisuorituksistaan tässä panttivankitrillerissä, jossa hän näyttelee panttivankineuvottelija Jeff Talleyta, joka epäonnistuneen tehtävän jälkeen siirtyy pikkukaupungin poliisipäälliköksi. Talleyn päivä saa kuitenkin yllättävän käänteen kun kolme teiniä (Jonathan Tucker, Ben Foster ja Marshall Allman) murtautuu rikkaan Walter Smithin (Kevin Pollak) taloon ja ottaa miehen ja tämän lapset pant"

Eventually, surprisingly, I have to admit it, it was not bad at all after all. This movie was directed by a rather obscure French director, Florent Emilio Siri, but I must say that he did a rather impressive job since the whole thing looked very good and I enjoyed the mood as well. Of course, the story was nothing exceptional but I thought it was entertaining enough and there were enough cool action scenes to keep me interested. As usual, Bruce Willis did his thing, nothing less, nothing more, but I didn't mind as the guy will be forever charismatic and Ben Foster stole the show, once again. Foster must ” read more
