If Not Us, Who?
In the early 60s, Bernward Vesper and fellow university student Gudrun Ensslin begin a passionate love in the stifling atmosphere of provincial West Germany. Dedicated to the power of the written word, Bernward and Gudrun found a publishing house whose first publication is, paradoxically to many, a controversial past work of Bernward's ostracized father, an infamous Nazi author. Bernward defends his father's writing ability, even if he is haunted by his father's suspicious past.

(au) wrote: Copied in parts from Hollywood (ie. the Departed), Randeep Hooda and Emran Hashmi are able to carry the film, somewhat. The female lead is a non-actress (ie. model) and therefore, a major downer. Nothing to write home about, but worth a watch for those who like Hashmi's work.
(nl) wrote: wholesome and appealing to the eye, this is a story that the whole family can appreciate. it may be sluggish to some viewers, but its definitely a historical event (Pearl Harbor) from the other perspective (Japan). Diving in and out faintly into the political tensions of the time, the story here is more focused on a mother, her two daughters and a close, honorable friend of the father watching over the family during their father's/husband's imprisonment for intellectual crimes of treason against the country.

All it is about is a bunch of qweens in NYC and a hetersexual woman and their qwest to get laid except for one of the attractive qweens. The main character isn't even attractive yet the hottest guys are after him. I wonder if he put up the money for this piece of trash. I don't understand why so many gay films are terrible. I can count all the great gay films on one hand. I would need to be a hindu god to count the bad and terrible ones.

I don't know how true to the life story the movie is, but I think I came away knowing more about him than I did before. I had always heard he had communist leanings, but after watching the movie, I think he was just an artist and independent thinker (with a taste for young girls.) His mother is played by Charlie Chaplin's daughter Geraldine Chaplin of Dr. Zhivago fame. Good cast, good story, good acting. Recommend.
(nl) wrote: Steven Seagal, just like many stars in his time, set back American movie back because they played invincible characters that took away any of the excitement we want in a action movie. On Deadly Ground delivers nothing from the action that people like in a Steven Seagal movie and is just another joke in his career. Steven Seagal plays, and i'm making this up, a martial artist/environmental agent who takes on a ruthless oil corporation. I know story is mostly a Seagal movie weak point, but did the writers have nothing in mind besides extending every scene longer than it needs to be. The movie also has some pointless scene like the vision scene which just add an extra layer of badness to the movie. I haven't watched a more poorly written story developed since I saw BKO: Bangkok Knockout. I never found Steven Seagal to be a bad-ass for numerous reasons, one being is that he barely or never get hit at all in his movies. Second being he can't act as everyone knows, so I find no reason to root for him as a hero in any movie. Third, he always plays a tough guy which makes us wonder if he's badly acting the main character over and over. The only redeeming value are shots of the mountain in the beginning of the movie. I never like Steven Seagal to begin with, nothing against him personally, it just his awful movies that I don't like. To think what started as man being used in a bet ended with Steven Seagal being the most boring action star we'll ever have.

(de) wrote: A true sleeper that many people have never heard of and certainly don't know it was directed by Spielberg. A comedic tour-de-force with a huge cast of talented actors that give terrific performances. Very funny, with both laugh out loud jokes and those that make you chuckle and appreciate the writing of Zemeckis and Gale. Also, a great musical number and massive fight scene during the movie's climax with hundreds of extras, including a young James Caan (uncredited).The only movie with both Dan Akyroid and John Belushi in it, as well as comedy legends John Candy (Spaceballs), Slim Pickens (Blazing Saddles) and Warren Oats (Stripes). You need to see this movie now!

(it) wrote: Not a very exciting story, it's just too typical and relays too much similarities with werewolf films. The characters are dull, the action is minor, and the ending is stale. Interesting moments here and there, but otherwise it is forgettable.
