Who seen it ?
There's probably other threads somewhere but I can't be bothered to check...
So... quite boring ?
which isn't a good sign.
The signs saying '12' and '15' are much prettier.
but for the type of film it should be, that is wank!
Someone said it was PG!
the only way to go though?!
unless it's sexfilled, a horrorfest or 'gritty'
it isn't very good...
Wiseman is a shit director and a few scenes are really ridiculous !
average at best.
One good idea ( werewolves against vampires ) doesn't make a good movie !
...it was still good, I thought.
( which can't be said for Underworld 2 ) but Wiseman is really crap.
All the others have been 15s.
Which is a shame. I have the US violent edition.
I'm not sure where this "PG" rumour's come from.
You must guide, lyle :-P
...and it was actually better than I was expecting. I have shit taste in films though, so it's probably utter crap in fairness. I enjoyed it, though.
Can't remember what happened really two hours later, though. Not a brilliant sign.
I usually go to the cinema to switch off though, and it was good enough for that.
I'd say as good as it was ever likely to be, but a bit unmemorable and nothing too remarkable. There's a fair bit of violence but nothing extreme or spectacular that you don't see in the trailer.
The empire review seems fair, 3/5 would be what I'd say.
was a PG and that has people getting shot in the face, melting people, Nazis being crushed by trucks, pretty violent !
Don't forget that Temple of Doom pushed that so far it created the PG-13 rating in America and got the BBFC into trouble.
Good points :
1. John McClane
2. geek sidekick is far better than I feared
3. Maggie Q is a great asian badgirl !
Bad points :
1. Wiseman can't direct
2. Script seems to be made only to have some good parts in a video game
3. Timothy Olyphant lacks any charisma
4. some action scenes are too much ( meaning hilariously crap )
I didn't really think some of the action scenes were crap, so much as a little far fetched.
But I kind of go to see films like that for someone to "kill a helicopter with a car". I'd be upset if it wasn't ludicrous.
There wasn't ever really any feeling of threat though, and the "OMG has the white house blown up bit" was a bit LOL @ the Americans.
but the scene with the plane is just fucking stupid and a pain to watch.
As is the end of the fight with Maggie Q !
