A good movie

9 months, 1 week ago at Apr 9 21:25
To be honest, I really had no idea what to expect from this movie but since I have a weak spot for Tommy Lee Jones, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, eventually, Jones had only a rather small part and showed up only for a couple of scenes. Indeed, William Devane was actually playing the lead but he was actually pretty good.

Rainaloki 2019 (7 movies items)

"6.1. Hieman vähemmälle huomiolle jäänyt tapaus, joka yhdistelee Vietnam-traumojen käsittelyä perinteiseen kostoelokuvaan onnistuneesti. Lisäksi toimintapuoli on asiallista (plus koukkukäsi sopivan eksploitatiivinen yksityiskohta muuten vakavahkossa elokuvassa) ja hahmogalleria varsin vahvaa tekoa. Mukana on muun muassa nuori Tommy Lee Jones, jonka tyhjä katse valpastuu ja suu vääntyy perverssiin hymyyn, kun mies pääsee tauon jälkeen toteuttamaan Vietnamin aikaista itseään. - Wh"

A good movie

“To be honest, I really had no idea what to expect from this movie but since I have a weak spot for Tommy Lee Jones, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, eventually, Jones had only a rather small part and showed up only for a couple of scenes. Indeed, William Devane was actually playing the lead but he was actually pretty good. Anyway, even though this movie might seem to be another revenge thriller (it was definitely sold as one), it was actually more about PTSD and, in my opinion, it was actually one of the better movies I have seen about the subject. Indeed, they basically followed the rules of the genre but the tone was much darker and bleaker than usual. For example, while the main character was being assaulted, I couldn't stop thinking about what would happen if his wife and ” read more

"First viewing - July 9th I've been following a series on A.V. Club this year called A History of Violence, which explores the most important action movie of each year starting with Bullitt. And I had seen everything the series covered until Rolling Thunder came up, so I picked it up along with their 1978 pick The Driver (which I also hadn't seen) to watch back-to-back. Certainly you can tell the influence this had on action movies. It was the first to really deal with post-Vietnam America dire"
