It's pretty good
first film is really good
second film possibly shittest of all time
and I've not even seen it
A bit more violent than I was expecting! :)
the 2nd film can go fuck it's self
Never really gotten indie nerds shitting themselves over the first one. It's a decently sequenced coming-of-age midtable moderate summer wallet squeezer, nothing more
that's a lot better than most popcorn action movies that have come out in the past decade.
I don't think anyone's claimed that it's 'indie' or 'alternative.' Maybe people have said that it was good because it was refreshing and a bit different to what has been churned out recently. Is that the same thing?
it has just seemed, from my exposure to indie circles, to be a film people shit themselves over. I think it's a solid 3 out of 5.
which in inexplicably popular amongst people who listen to artists like casiotone for the painfully alone
Otherwise pretty boring
The first scene with Hit Girl in costume, with the Banana Splits music playing, is the best scene in the whole film, and Nicholas Cage isn't even in that scene.
took it for what it is - fun, tongue in cheek action movie. Second one not quite as good, not helped by Moretz making me feel pretty yewtree.
When he gets hit by the car after the stabbing incident I was the only one that laughed really loudly.
Second one is better than these idiots would have you believe too
hats off to everyone who took such nasty source material and made such a fun film.
ended up being, that said Mark Millar's fairly conservating leanings come through a little strongly for my taste.
It's massively inconsistent in tone. Don't know about the comic, but I'd certainly ay the film was nasty. And shit.
It's a bit shit
