Poor John Woo...

"Michael Jennings is not a super agent, he's an engineer."

Ever since John Woo trotted off to Hollywood, the quality of his output has gradually declined. Following the days of Hard-Boiled, A Better Tomorrow and The Killer, director Woo moved into Hollywood and made his mark with the underrated Hard Target and the exceptional action-thriller Face/Off.

But the golden y... read more

Recently, Ben Affleck has made one of the most impressive come-backs and even won the Best Picture Academy award which is something that none of us actually expected. Well, 10 years ago, the situation was quite different for Affleck as he showed up in a string of huge flops and this movie was one of them.

“Recently, Ben Affleck has made one of the most impressive come-backs and even won the Best Picture Academy award which is something that none of us actually expected. Well, 10 years ago, the situation was quite different for Affleck as he showed up in a string of huge flops and this movie was one of them. With this in mind, I wasn’t expecting much from this flick but I still wanted to give it a shot. Eventually, I thought it was not bad at all. Indeed, to start with, it was based on a very fascinating story by Philip K. Dick (which I haven’t read, to be honest) and I thought the whole thing was quite entertaining. Indeed, I always had a weak spot for science-fiction features and this one was mixed with a rather tensed thriller so I don’t really get the hate towards the whole thing. A” read more

"I remember seeing the trailer for this movie years ago and I bought it cheap on DVD to check it out. Not a bad movie, but the movie was nothing special. It's a shame that this was John Woo's last movie in the US and the whole movie was completely forgettable. "

Miika's Movie Diary - 2011 (320 movies items)

"Watched 8.8 ---------- Ei ihan sieltä paskimmasta päästä, mutta silti paria toimintakohtausta lukuunottamtaa tylsää katsottavaa eikä toimi edes aivottomana viihteenä. Face/Off ja M:I kakkosen vaikutteet näkyvät häiritsevästi, minkä takia tulee väkisinkin sellainen olo että Woo haluaa vain kierrättää vanhoja elokuviaan. Tulevaisuuteennäkemishommeli on ideana ihan mielenkiintoinen, mutta koko ajatus kaatuu loppujen lopuksi siihen ettei tässä edes yritetä hyödyntää sitä. U"

"Watched: 26.3 ---------------- Jos MI2 oli Woon uran pohjanoteeraus, niin mikäs sitten äijän (onneksi) viimeiseksi jäänyt Hollywood-leffa Paycheck on. Se on yksi kaikkien aikojen huonoimmista elokuvista ja takuulla Woon huonoin elokuva. Ja Affelckin karmiva pääosasuoritus kummittelee vieläkin mielessäni. "
