There is some drama here, of course, but, thankfully, it's saved for the beginning of the film and it's never actually unbearable to watch. It's good to just be able to enjoy a film without worrying about the more maudlin elements these films tend to give in to. And honestly, because of that, I had a blast watching this movie. I might've given it, only, three stars but I legit had a really fun time watching this film. It's really a combination of a lot of stuff, because the film, really, is mostly the heist planning and I could take it or leave it. I mean it's not bad, but it definitely doesn't offer the best of the film. It's definitely alleviated by a really talented cast and makes it easier to watch. I don't wanna say that the exposition is confusing, but if you don't pay attention, and you're unfamiliar with Korean names, then a lot of this will be really fucking confusing to you. But, really, I don't think they do a great job at keeping the planning of the heist itself focused enough, with a lot of information being thrown out there in a haphazard manner. What the film does do really fucking well, however, is the actual heist itself, which is when it really kicks into next gear. It's not like it's as thrilling as the train heist from Breaking Bad, but everything from the heist to everything after is really fucking entertaining. So that, to me, elevated pretty much everything else. Again, the planning, while made entertaining by a real good cast, wasn't that great. That's the only real complaint I have about the film, that it isn't consistently entertaining or that focused. If it had been, I can see myself giving this movie a higher rating for sure. Because even with those issues, I still had a really fun time watching this movie. So it's obvious I'd have liked it even more if the issues I had were tightened up. It's actually to the point where I wouldn't mind seeing a sequel to this movie and I don't say that often. And it's not like a sequel where you fix all of the flaws and perfect the formula, though that's part of it, I just liked the cast that much to where I want to see them get together again, just to see them again. I'm assuming that this film wasn't hugely successful or else we'd have gotten a sequel by now. Not that it's much of an issue, since I've seen a lot of these actors appearing in different movies together, but other movies might adhere to the melodramatic and hysterics that I really hate. I just wanna see them in this type of movie, where it, while having some drama, keeps a fun tone. With that out of the way, I had a real fun time with this, even though I thought it had a lot of flaws. I'd recommend it, but it's not really something that you need to go out of your way to see, there's better movies to see out there, but this will still keep you entertained, if that's what you're looking for.

It also shows the bravery and sacrifice of people in r great nation like John Lewis. However, i found it very vanilla and kind of boring especially the beginning. I also thought some parts were a bit unbelievable and whitewashed like his affairs and relationship with Coretta. I also think LBJ was poorly Portrayed since i believe he did a lot to help the cause. The best parts were probably martin luther's speeches and his private talks with ppl expressing some of his doubts and his faith. I also enjoyed watching Oprah once again play a strong woman and some real footage from the time.

Merol Kim C (br) wrote: Quite intense.Yes, its plot suffers from tired and cliched slasher-film tricks but it maneuvers itself in a way that you overlook its flaws and end up enjoying it (or atleast that's what my mood tells me). The creepy sequences were smartly handled, giving the film a consistent and terrific flow of events. Also, the purpose of exposing the terror in a near-death situation was really given definition. However, the movie flunks terribly at its CLIMAX--a total face-palm effect. It failed to bring up a justifying conclusion to the action that has been effectively built up before then. Overall, I think this was an aced derivative of grade-B horror movies :-) 3.65/5

Gimly M (ru) wrote: A new-age, brilliant vampire movie that never got the acclaim it rightfully deserved.30 Days of Night is one of the few films I like that I can never understand why other people don't. Though I do prefer other movies like Revolver, Doomsday and Donnie Darko to it, with those I can always understand when people don't see in them what I do. With 30 Days of Night, if you don't have a problem with gore, then you shouldn't have a problem with the film. And yet I have personal friends as well as people I've heard from online who totally dig horror, gore, vampires etc. and yet don't like 30 Days of Night, which confuses me all to Hell, let me tell you.Though I was mildly aggravated by the inconstancies in the number of vampires around, other than that I can find virtually nothing bad to say about 30 Days of Night. Firstly you have Josh Hartnett (Halloween H20: 20 Years Later, The Faculty, The Virgin Suicides, Hollywood Homicide, Sin City, The Wrong Man, Resurrecting the Champ, Singularity) as Sheriff Eben, protagonist, secondly you have Danny Huston (21 Grams, The Proposition, The Constant Gardner, Children of Men, The Number 23, The Kingdom, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Clash of the Titans, The Warrior's Way, Robin Hood ) as Marlow (above centre), leader of the vampires, who attack Alaska during the winter period of 30 days without sun (which in and of itself is an awesome concept, and thirdly there's Ben Foster (The Punisher, X-Men: The Last Stand, 3:10 to Yuma, Pandorum, The Mechanic) as the vampire's human lapdog, all of whom are personal favourites of mine. That's not even mentioning the fact that Eben's wife is played by Australian Melissa George (Dark City, Mulholland Drive, Charmed, The Amityville Horror , Turistas, Triangle), who was born in my hometown, so even if she wasn't a great actor, she'd get auto-points.Basically every point in which 30 Days of Night differentiates from the comic it's based on is an improvement to the story, which is (gasp, shock, horror) a mildly realistic Vampire film. God forbid. I love the vampires in this. Though they're not quite as sexy and well-dressed as they are in Underworld or as demonic as they are in Buffy the Vampire Slayer, they bring a totally new brutality to the vampire class. They wear what you'd expect late 30-ish people living in 2007 to wear, they're stronger than the average human, but not impossibly so, they hunt in packs and give off bloodcurdling, atavistic shrieks (of which I give quite a good impression; sidenote) they're unrelenting an animalistic but just as intelligent as a regular person, they're quick, dark and deadly.There's no camp to be found here, not always a good thing, but in 30 Days of Night, it is. I honestly cannot recommend this one enough, despite its intense gore and general panning, I implore you to at the very least give it a go, and decide for yourself.Both the human survivors and the vampire invaders are there simply trying to stay alive, the vamps through their sadistic, systematic hunting of the local populace for their food-source, blood, and the people by trying to both hide, and fight back, but mostly the former. Ironically, it's the "humanity" of the humans that causes every one of their downfalls, while they're leached from above by a far superior race, who goes so far as to call humans a "plague" and invent a new language all for themselves, just so as to not have to speak the same filthy way we lower-beings do (and I mean, if your choice was between that and having to put up with American-English, wouldn't you?).83%-Gimly

I wonder how the conversation went between him and his school careers adviser. A little like this, perhaps:Young Bela: "My ambition is to star in some of the most iconic and important horror movies in cinema history, so becoming a global icon of the genre. Ha. Ha. Ha. And then I shall end my career in cheap and lazy rehashes with scant regard for plot, continuity or acting until nobody takes me seriously anymore and my pictures are treated with contempt and ridicule."Careers Adviser: "Sure, good plan. Here's the number for Universal."
