(us) wrote: Not as good as the books but a good watch hopefully the screenwritersame will put more into the third movie the potential to be so much better is there. The 2nd movie could have been much better as well.. the trailer pretty. Much shows you all.ofhe excitement. I know.i already said it but it could have been so much better. So much detail left out from the books
(it) wrote: The only thing that matches the name of the movie is that you Could not catch any anything from this movie.
(de) wrote: There are some truly intense scenes of disaster movie carnage and I think the right ingredients are here but Roland Emmerich's typical directorial faults hamper it a great deal; with far too much jarring comic relief and a reach far greater than its grasp.
(us) wrote: interesting seeing the gay thing from another cultures pov
(gb) wrote: Inventive concept, poor execution. I actually consider this one of the better Hellraiser movies, despite the fact that it's a slasher film with teens for a large part of it.
(ru) wrote: It's funnier than you would think. The best thing about it is definitely Jack Black.
(br) wrote: Not bad ..OK, it was pretty bad -but fun for a general consumption, alien slasher flick, but for Forest Whittaker's character's "ESP." What's next? A fairy princess with a magic sword, too?I love when he enters the train compartment where in addition to a horrid, slimy, downright obscene vagina-looking alien cocoon stuck to the wall and by purple tentacles, and a general mess of disarray, garbage, broken stuff, and rotting food in the compartment, a porter is lying dead with her throat ripped out. Forest's Character, gravely, somberly, and using his impressive ESP powers: :something bad happened here.""Something bad happened here." Gee. Really? No shit! Thanks for telling us. We MIGHT not have been able to figure that out on our own.I also dug the secret agent security guy with sunglasses and obvious earphone. That's how we know he's a secret agent security guy! I admit though, it would have required even less mental effort on my part had he been wearing the obligatory trenchcoat.And that's my beef with Hollywood. They presume we're all children. Well, most people are intellectually. But not all of us.

(ca) wrote: Not a good movie, but a bit better than most give it credit for. If you like 80s camp, Jerry Lewis and Vonnegut then it's mildly entertaining. Generally, it's uncanny.
(es) wrote: The kind of movie you watch thinking it'll be so bad it's funny - it's simply bad. The special effects and explosions are pretty rad though.
(ag) wrote: A very odd Christmas film. For some reason, there was yellow babies, stabs to the neck with a sharpened candy cane, and trash bag full of gore! I wanted Santa and Rudolph and something a little more lighthearted! I'll admit to being a little dyslexic, so at the library, I must of been looking for WHITE Christmas, oh! Whoopsy! I guess I'm a little color blind, too. It wasn't a total loss, I suppose; I got to see a smoking, pregnant woman.
(au) wrote: Liked this one a lot! This had more of a story vs some of the other Carry On movies I've seen. This is about a husband who's obsessed with his cab business that he virtually ignores his wife. So his wife does something drastic. She opens up her own! With busomy drivers! Fun all around.
(au) wrote: Definitely deserves to be among the ranks as one of the best mob movies ever made. Al Pacino is fantastic as always and reminds you of his star quality watching him in this movie as Lefty Ruggerio. Johnny Depp equally steps up to the plate as well in the title role of Donnie Brasco aka Joseph D. Pistone. But we can't forget Michael Madsen, who gives a very underrated supporting performance as Sonny Black
