Michael Bay throws a decent movie our way

Making a good action scene isn't really all that hard. You just need some action to it, and voila. You have a good action scene. Then you just slap some cliched score ontop and edit it nicely. But let's take a look at what action scenes are about; They're about people being involved in action. Be it a car chase, a shootout or even a fistfight, it always involves primary or secondary characters duk... read more

The Rock is complete bad-ass. If this sentence reminded you of the wrestler, don't bother reading this review. Michael Bay has become synonymous with big-budgeted flicks with little to no soul to them nowadays. The Rock is as arthouse a film as one can get. This film is still to this day his most celebrated film, and his most critically acclaimed, and that's ironic seeing he is less known for his ... read more

"1.2. DVD The Rockin suurin, ehkä ainoakin, varsinainen ongelma mulle on liika kesto. Isoa toimintaelokuvaa, kun tehdään, on rakennekin herkästi vähän sillisalaattimaista, mutta ei tuo kyllä häiritse. Parhaimpina hetkinään helposti parhaita näkemiäni toimintaelokuvia, mutta jatkuvaan jytinään ja ryminään valitettavasti uupuu ja kiinnostus laskee. Samaten, kun koko ajan paahdetaan täysillä, on hiljaiset jännitteettömät kohdat vain tylsiä. Taiten tehtyä överitoimintaa, mutt"

"1.11. The Rockin katselukerta arviolta numero 30-40 oli pakko toteuttaa katseltuani hetken aikaa kuvaa Connerystä näyttämässä peukkua. Ysäritoiminnan kuninkaallinen vyöryttää ruudulle aikakautensa all star -castin Sean Conneryn, Nicolas Cagen, William Forsythen, Tony Toddin, Michael Biehnin, Ed Harrisin ja John Spencerin johdolla. Komentokeskuksessa huolestuu joukko muiden ysäritoimintojen komentokeskuksista tuttuja - luultavasti koko näyttelijänuransa kenraalia esittäneitä - kasv"

"16.12 (uusintakatselu) "Loser always whine about their best. Winners go home and fuck the prom queen." 90-luvun muistettavimpia ja viihdyttävimpiä toimintapätkiä, parhaalla mahdollisella castilla. Todennäköisesti myös Bayn ainut pätkä, joka edes onnistuu jossain. Kyllähän tässäkin Bay-patriotismi sekä satunnainen Bay-bullshit särkee päätä, mutta ei onneksi niin paljon mitä jossain Transformersissa. Ikimuistettava takaa-ajokohtaus San Fransiscon kaduilla saa kämmenpohjat hik"
