Adrian S (gb) wrote: Love the setup....how it painted a sharp portrait of Richard as an all-rounder who excels in sports and academia. Richard is really the kind of bloke every mom wants their girl to have over for dinner - chummy, kind, brotherly and sensitive. Richard also happens to be at the crossroads of his life where he has to take a leap to adulthood and learn to make matured decisions. However, a night-out partying unexpectedly leads to a devastating accident, incriminating him in the process. Thereby, shattering his loved ones and dreams. What Richard Did intricately and methodically explores the downward spiral of a promising young man's life, leaving a disquieting and emotionally resonant aftertaste.

The only redeeming feature was really the coolness of watching aliens repeatedly get shot in the head and have their life essence/little glowing bug thingies escape. The movie itself had virtually no plot, characters making ludicrous decisions and the ending was flat-out terrible. Not to mention the fact that the tagline on the front of the box didn't even remotely describe the movie.

Jose M (br) wrote: There is a lot to say about Murder Set Pieces, but what does that film has to say about. Well, it is a huge rip from American Psycho, but yet it manages to have some brutal violence and some humor in it. No wait, American Psycho did it better, but that does not mean that Murder Set Pieces is all bad. There are some comical moments and great visuals using light and color and a very cool electronic theme song. The film may be dismissed as torture porn, but I found this closer to violent pornography with a plot than I did to torture porn. It is not as poorly made as it was made out be because there are worst films being sold out there: Feeding Grounds, The Craving, and Sheltered. You interested in this film then I suggest you see American Psycho. I could not understand the character at all or the psychology that plagues him along with his family history. Yet, it is nice to see the misogyny in films alive just like in the tradition of Don??t Answer the Phone, Don??t Go Outside, Don??t talk to Strangers, Maniac, and Don??t Go in the House.

Matt M (it) wrote: A cop, who steals $450,000 to help the woman he has an affair with has to track down the money to clear his name when all evidence points against him. The usual high speed Denzel Washington starring thriller, it doesn't stand out particularly due to the naivety of the script which is content with being superficial despite of the many psychological aspects of the story which would have been worthwhile focusing on.
Blake L (fr) wrote: While it isn't as good as the books, this movie is still great. The English version is ruined by the most monotone voice actors alive, but the translation is still pretty accurate. I recommend watching this movie with subtitles. The best part of this movie would have to be that it includes the extra chapter about Yahiko and the 8 page ending that were never put into the 28th book.

Jennifer R (us) wrote: I think we got this on vhs through some dumb "family movie club" where we also got a "White Wolves" and "Sky Trackers" movies that both were really bad and we cancelled the club after that first set of movies we got. This one kind of surprised me after seeing the others though. It still was really not that great in my opinion and had a lot of things wrong with it, but the story itself was interesting and had potential to be a good movie if the script and acting were better and it wasn't so much of a "family movie". This would have made an interesting thriller for adults.
Mark H (kr) wrote: The last scene in this film is the last Herzog ever shot with Kinski before his death...and probably one of the most beautiful i have ever seen on screen...The film itself isn't great by any means but if you sit through it you will be glad you watched it by the time the film gets to it.
Paul C (nl) wrote: 30 years on and the comedy still stands up - it's all too obvious where the comedians that followed took their lead from. The crude, often profane language as well as offensive material we have all got used to over the years - but Pryor is much more than this, certainly being a brilliant physical performer too.

Jacob S (au) wrote: There comes a time when you just wanna see a movie that just says Screw it! We're gonna have a freakin blast!! Well this is definetly that film! Very over-the-top, funny, badass action picture (allbeit unrealistic but who cares). Not for everyone, especially people who take movies seriously. But for all those who are open-minded and love action, you'll love the hall outta this flick, I certainly did:)
