Richard Thorncroft is a has-been British TV actor who used to be famous in the late 1980's for playing the titular and charismatic lead role in the Isle of Man detective show Mindhorn, a character with a Robotic eye that can literally "see the truth". Unfortunately, after becoming a little too pompous and arrogant, Richard ends up insulting both the Isle of Man and his fellow cast members on the Wogan chat-show, including his on-screen and real life love interest Patricia DeVille, (Effie Davies) his Stuntman, (Simon Farnaby) and bit-part costar Peter Easterman. (Steve Coogan) He decides to leave to try and make it big in Hollywood, but 25 years later and he's balding in a flat in North London and has recently been replaced for an orthopaedic sock advert by John Nettles, much to his chagrin. He is even more jealous that Easterman now fronts a long running spin-off show which has far eclipsed the success of Mindhorn. Richard has an unexpected opportunity to reignite his career though ... . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

Adam R (gb) wrote: A bit more obscene than necessary, but there are some funny moments. It's probably a movie where you want to be well-versed in the genre before watching in order to catch what is being spoofed. As I am guilty of watching my share of teen movies I did get some entertainment from it. (First viewing - Teen years)

Real G (us) wrote: This film keeps it plot very very very simple until about midway through when all of a sudden the police chief daughter gets kidnapped and our hero has to go save her. Add in a few shots of our hero looking at old photos of his adopted parents and you got yourself a pretty good cop flick right? Well, not in this case. Black Cobra is mind numbingly predictable. All you need to watch is the first five minutes and you know how it's going to end. The ending is rather contrived, that is, it should end in one spot but for the sake of creativity, the writers decided to throw a little curve ball in for fun. Furthermore, the cheif antagonist is incredibly corny. His dialogue is very limited for a good first half of this film. Perhaps that is to caution you on his lack of acting skills. Instead, all he does is smile. Smile, smile, smile. It gets really annoying after a while. I would not recommend this film. The acting is horrible, the sound is muffled at times, the continuty in some scenes is notciably different. For example, there is a scene where our hero follows the antagonist into a home in the dead of night. He opens the door and all of a sudden its the middle of the day. Continuity people. This film is lacking in so many places. Do yourself a favor and skip this one.
Jay S (jp) wrote: This film was just TRAGIC. Oh, I'm sure it was meant to be a 'tragedy'... But really, it should have been titled simply, "The Consequence of Sin". That's all it was; the story of a family torn apart by idiotic sinful choices. She went absolutely bonkers over a guy and gave herself to him repeatedly without making him marry her, and then wondered what went wrong when he left and would not return. And then he rejects her, but then later they realize they should've been together, and she cracks even further... Just awful. Cinematicly, it was fantastic, and the acting (with all that unnecessary drama due to their poor decisions) was superb. But I'm left with no desire to ever see this again, so three stars is as high as it can earn. So little redemptive about this movie. And that line towards the end about him being a stone people dashed themselves against... stolen right out of the bible when it was about Christ... Gross.
Christopher H (ag) wrote: Best-Stephen Spielberg movie-so far. This movie depicts the horrors of war in the most affective way possible. From the viewpoint of a war veteran on the Normandy Landing on D-day which works in ways that will make you feel for the people in this movie, not just the major and minor characters, but even for the extras and to think this actually did happen, it is truly terrifying. The depiction of war is really horrifyingly realistic, in fact it's the most realistic war film I've seen so far. Tom Hanks as always gives a great performance in this film which made it 100 times better, he is a master at what he does, he never makes an okay performance, he always gives it his all. Amazing direction, top notch acting, an amazing first sequence and a very emotional final act mixed altogether to make the best war film of all time. (Not exagerating)
Art S (de) wrote: Not as laugh-out-loud funny as some of Preston Sturges' other films of the forties (The Palm Beach Story, The Miracle of Morgan Creek) but possessed of one of those rare "high concepts" that hits the spot. In this case, Joel McCrea plays movie director John L. Sullivan who wants to make a picture about the down-and-out and their plight (to be called "O Brother Where Art Thou?") but he realizes that he hasn't actually known poverty and trouble himself. So, he decides (in bad taste) to go undercover as a tramp to see what the life is really like and when he runs into broke but aspiring actress Veronica Lake, she joins him. It takes a while for the studio to let him go and a large detachment of personnel - errr, character actors -- are sent in pursuit if and when trouble does descend. But getting there is basically all the fun in this film and when McCrea and Lake actually do meet the destitute, the film gets a bit gloomy. But Sturges pulls us out of it okay, with his usual ridiculously unbelievable plot mechanics and a grand wink about how no one really wants message films -- they just want to laugh to forget their troubles. Amen, brother.
