(ru) wrote: The whole time that I was watching this movie, I was wishing that I wasn't. I just found this to be very boring and uneventful. Mystery? Suspense? Ha! I don't think so. The only question left to mystery here is why would anyone want to sit through this? Lots of people far smarter than me seem ro like it, but I certainly did not!

(kr) wrote: Denzel is in another crime thriller. This time he is a sketchy detective who stole the money from a drug bust then had it at his mistresses house when the house goes up in flames killing them both. So he has to cover his tracks and figure out what happened. Problem is, this was entirely predictable. I could see the 'twist' if you could call it that coming pretty much immediately after the crime. Denzel is great is so many movies where he is a man with questionable morals, this is not one of them. Supposedly him and Eva Mendes were married in this movie, but they had absolutely no chemistry. So that's why they broke up, eh? Just not believable or interesting and it was really predictable.

(kr) wrote: It was smart and sharp and cutting edge and a big "FUCK-you" to conventional Hollywood filmmaking then, and it probably still is now. I laughed my ass off, and it features enough satire to go head to head with Network in a steel cage match (Network might win on artistic integrity, but Putney Swope has the guts to shank a fool on the spot). Btw, if you're wondering why Putney sounds not quite, um, "black", it's cause Downey Sr dubbed the man cause he couldn't remember his lines. No bother, it's still something of a flawed classic.

(ca) wrote: Dated yes. Hell it was made in the 1950s however the plot, soundtrack and cast are very stirring. The RAF characters and Dr Barnes Wallis depicted are heroes every last one of them.

(ag) wrote: Fairly conventional WW2 movie. Unfortunately, the movie has nothing to do with the famous battles for Tobruk. Instead, the plot revolves around a fictitious raid on Tobruk by British troops in WW2. Nothing new here - this could be The Guns of Navarone, or any similar movie.Solid, though often stereotypical, performances all round.
(es) wrote: This movie was amazing and surprised the hell outta me. This is Universal Soldier starring Col. Guile: Jean-Claude Van Damme and Ivan Drago: Dolph Lundgren (and directed by the famous Roland Emmerich who will later know for future disaster movies such as Stargate, Independence Day, Godzilla, The Day After Tomorrow, 10000 B.C. and 2012). Anyway the story is about Luc played by JCVD and Scott played Dolph who are both rival soldiers and are each shot dead during a duel. But they are taken away by the Government and regenerated to be made into robot-like near-perfect soldiers known as Universal Soldiers. But both Luc and Scott get their memories back of the moments before they died and Luc escapes first which causes Scott to chase after him. Luc meets Veronica played by Ally Walker which encourages Scott to try and kill Luc even more with his newly found girl and this causes a wild chase. This film was amazing and I mean amazing. Yeah I know Stargate, Godzilla and Independence Day were Roland Emmerich's earliers but if you want to go into his actual very first movies, then check this out. Universal Soldier gets a 8.5/10.
