(br) wrote: A definite copy of the Italian Job, but with some small changes. The characters act a lot more gangster, and it is an almost all black cast for the robbery team with the exception of Paul Walker and Matt Dillon, who fit right in with the rest. It dosen't differ much from Italian Job, and besides the cast, the big differences are how these men will kill for the money, the hiest dosen't go at all according to plan, and in the end only two survive. The movie also focuses on two cops who are out on the job to find these men, and their story is pretty good, and without it the movie would have been definatly missing something important. Most characters do seem to be missing on depth, but later in the movie it is kinda resolved. The action scenes are not great, but not bad, as the sound effects are cheap and overused. The last battles in the apartment against the Russians was good, with the light music playing over most of the battle sounds and the opposing sides firing through the walls, and very little if any blood was shown. The next small shootout where two of them walked out in front of a blockade of cops and where gunned down follows the same idea as the other one with the light music and is a very good scene. But all in all it is a copy of another movie, and even in this film it is said that they should go "Italian job" on the armored truck, and the movie plays out very similar to that film with the hole blown into the subway that the truck falls through, the betrayal of their friend, and the hacking of the lights at the intersections. So no points for originality although some stuff was changed, some scenes were well and good, and the action was ok. Ok movie, to bad it didn't have a different idea behined it all.
(es) wrote: Daniel Craig and Rhys Ifans give brilliant performances in this overwrought stalking story -- logic fails in that Daniel Craig's character never calls the police about the stalker which seems bizarre even in these times when we aren't sure that police really care about us -- they do by the way. The musical score is over the top and this doesn't help. Still I am glad I watched the film... Also glad I saw it at home.
(kr) wrote: The movie spent the whole budget on pyrotechnics for a few scenes. The skeleton man looks like a cheap Halloween costume. This movie is so bad it is pretty funny.
(mx) wrote: A solid prison drama with strong performances by Wesley Snipes and Ving Rhames, but the film lacks in any form of human emotion or character study and just leaves a dark shell that isn't totally filled and makes you feel unsatisfied. But it's not to say it isn't well-crafted from it's director, Walter Hill. It also has one of the best boxing showdowns shown in a film since the original Rocky and Raging Bull.

(au) wrote: If it was that hard to watch, how much harder was it to make?P.S. Ving Rhames is BA.
(gb) wrote: A college comedy triumph! Jeremy Piven finally in a lead role after playing sidekick for far too long. Even screenwriter Zak Penn today has turned around and admits he likes it.
(au) wrote: great new zealand western.
(au) wrote: As a whole, it does pale in comparison to the great Peter Yates directed version of the play from 1983, but McKellen and Hopkins certainly make this a worthwhile adaptation.

(kr) wrote: Surprisingly very good. I assumed it had fallen into obscurity for a reason - not so. While it's evident to see that Attenborough is already trying to be David Lean, a parish he wouldn't enter until Gandhi a decade later, this works wonderfully. I think if you can stage a grand epic biopic and propel it in such a way that it doesn't feel overlong, you've won. I think with biopics you've either got to have a great narrative or a great character - this falls into the category of the latter. Churchill himself is fascinating, even if the film overall really feels like Churchill Begins (it ends with him lighting what is presumably his first cigar. Then he jumps off a building and flies into the night.) Good cast as well - Simon Ward really does carry the film, which is another pleasant surprise, and Anne Bancroft's work here is really top-notch.
(kr) wrote: A school in the South that educates African Americans is in need of money so a woman goes to the North in search of money for the school. This movie from 1920 is famous for being the earliest surviving film to be directed by an African American. The most interesting thing about this film is how it captures what it was like to be an African American during the 1920's. Women were fighting for the right to vote but they didn't want African American women to vote. Lynching was still going on and the attitude amongst some whites was that it was better to give money to an African American church then it was to give money to an African American school. God was considered better then an education. It has some powerful scenes in it. One showing a lynching and how the mob started firing on a young boy who was trying to escape. Another scene showing an attempted rape of a black woman by a white man. Worth seeking out.
(fr) wrote: A very British, humorous take on the good old zombie topic. Not only is this full of great ideas, jokes, movie quotes and great laughs, it even works pretty well as gory splatter horror, even though you gotta laugh way too often to be really scared. Silly, but really lovable and just fun to watch, as long as some blood doesn't bother you.
(au) wrote: Very fun for mature audience
(ru) wrote: The classic of classics when it comes to musicals, a wonderful movie that is light, entertaining and funny with priceless dialogue and amazing choreography - and where even an out-of-place Broadway number is delightful enough to make us forgive it for being there.
