A good movie

Since I kept hearing some pretty good things about this movie, I was really eager to check it out. Well, it is mostly famous for its amazing car chase and while this scene was indeed really impressive, this movie had actually also much more to offer. First of all, it was dealing with some counterfeit money makers which was so much more original than your usual drug dealers and it was apparently do... read more

A good movie

“Since I kept hearing some pretty good things about this movie, I was really eager to check it out. Well, it is mostly famous for its amazing car chase and while this scene was indeed really impressive, this movie had actually also much more to offer. First of all, it was dealing with some counterfeit money makers which was so much more original than your usual drug dealers and it was apparently done in such a realistic way that it inspired some viewers to make some fake money after watching this flick. Furthermore, I really enjoyed the gritty tone, they really made some bold decisions and I was just floored by what they did in the final act. Indeed, you won't see very often a movie ending with the main character getting shot in the head just like that.  So, the damned thing had a lot of q” read more

"1.1.2018, rewatch, DVD Takaa-ajokohtaus ja ammuskelut ovat rautaisia ja väkivalta on tylyä. Willem Dafoe on hyvä roiston roolissa ja Petersen vetäisee kovan kytän roolin hyvin. Hyvä elokuva, joka kestää monta katselukertaa. "

Miika's Movie Diary - 2017 (250 movies items)

"26.12,Blu-ray, rewatch Itselläni 80-luvun tunnelma kulminoituu elokuvan muodossa kenties parhaiten tähän tekeleeseen. Synkkä kyttätarina ja aikansa fiilistä huokuva Los Angeles toimivat hienosti. Olen nähnyt tämän useampaan otteeseen, mutta elokuvan rakenne niin hyvin jäsennelty, että joka kerta tämä tuntuu yllätykselliseltä ja kiinnostavalta katsoa."
