(it) wrote: Started off with a bang! But before I could recline in my chair it decided to shift from thriller to a gall darn dialogue driven drama! After an hour long snoozefest and the bullets decided to come out of hibernation it was too little too late!
(nl) wrote: The main stars of the movie are three wrestlers : Kurt Angle, Kevin Nash and Psycho Sid Vicious... when these are main stars you really can't expect a lot from the movie...everything was terrible.. the acting, the script, the lighting, the stunts, special effects...complete garbage... if you are a wrestling fan wanting to see your heroes in a movie, skip this one and go re-watch a Steve Austin, John Cena, or Rock film; they aren't great but at least they aren't awful either...
(mx) wrote: truly indie filmmaking at it's best. surreal, but not pretentious. smart, but also funny. if you want to watch a movie, and then talk about it all night with intelligent people, rent this, smoke a joint, bust open some wine, and see what you get out of it... or watch jerry maguire if you're a friggin' jerkoff.
(us) wrote: An earlier Maddin effort, but many of his calling cards are already in place: old-time crackly black-and-white style, snow, isolation, missing limbs, confused identities, envy, absurd humor. The storytelling in this one is a bit jumbled but it's fun and fascinating nonetheless.
(nl) wrote: Wouldn't the world be so simple if everyone processes information as logically as the characters do here. An extremely low budget single set piece movie with 4 central characters doing a hot and cold job. One moment the action and dialogues feel irritating and the next moment they are intriguing. Works more as a 'what if' game you might enjoy on a lazy afternoon and talking about lazy somebody else is playing it and you just have to sit back and watch it. Tony (Ray Milland) has retired from professional tennis and living off his rich wife Margot (Grace Kelly) who is having an affair with Mark (Robert Cummings) a crime fiction writer. When Tony learns of this affair, he comes up with an elaborate plan for a perfect murder involving his ex-college mate Swann (Anthony Dawson). When the implementation goes horribly wrong, Tony quickly turns it again to his advantage. But he has to convince shrewd Inspector Hubbard (John Williams) along with Mark. Though it is highly inconsistent in terms of performances and dialogues, the screenplay is watertight with gripping suspense and a witty plot. What actually is a simple perfect plan, Hitchcock's brilliance shines here with his masterful placing of pieces and strategically joining them. Ray Milland's dialogue delivery is horrible in the beginning but gets better later and Mark's cautious and caring character could have been a little more interesting. Grace Kelly is beautifully shown but John Williams steals the show as the tactful inspector. Background score is loud as in all Hitchcock's movies including a thread that does not leave your head for sometime. Low budget thriller at its witty best

(ru) wrote: Tooooo much CGI and horrible lighting
(es) wrote: absolutely terrible. on another note, this is the 3rd straight film where the city i live in was part of the filming. interesting.
(ru) wrote: Good film, the begining with the reduction of color and the flashbacks made me rethink what I was expecting, but thankfully that changed and the movie turned out pretty good. The acting was good, and the characters had some very deep moments that really upped their parts. The action was decent but not amazing and the script was good and contained plenty of swearing. It was nice that try ended it so the cop turned out to not be corrupt, because so many movies already have used that ending and it's become pretty old. So impressive, well done, the characters are all really good, and has great depth, and the film has some sad moments that are filmed well. Really good film, only thing that lets it down is the plot that we've aleady seen plenty of.
(nl) wrote: An underlooked at film that is one of the best movies produced in the '70's. Roy Scheider is a member of an elite police task force in New York City, whose anti mob objective becomes complicated by now needing to protect the mob bosses from some officers in Scheider's own department.. A more popular movie is the earlier The French Connection, but The Seven-Ups is unhindered by Hackman's lack of acting ability and the earlier movie's intensely boring and nonsensical plot.The gritty realism of urban crime in The Seven-Ups is unparalleled. And it contains the best car chase Hollywood has ever made, much better than the boring Bullit chase or Hackman's attempts in The French Connection. That is if you like a realistic car chase and not one that seems more suited for Star Wars.
