This movie is not easy to understand and digest, you need certain IQ.
Sgt C (nl) wrote: (0%)So Mr Boll, did the world really need another one of these? Well we got another and it's no surprise that it's just as odious as the dire original. This quite possibly is the most irrelevant movie of the year, there's just nothing to it at all. Brendan Fletcher returns as the world's biggest scumbag, only now he's even more loathsome than ever, as he kills a few random folk going about their business, then he attacks a TV station to get his voice out there. His voice in question is a randomly assembled rant on anything from the Bush administration to yoga, and none of it is balanced or insightful. And that's it, he shoots people, rants, abuses a few hostages, rants some more, the end. This isn't a movie, it's a load of youtube videos made by bitter weirdos mixed with scenes of tedious violence. Mr Boll, time to call it a day and retire, sooner the better.
Akiko A (kr) wrote: Postman Pat as a movie is not quite good enough to spend money at the theater. Postman Pat is a television show in the U.K. and is very British in it's appeal. The movie centers around Postman Pat as one of the favorite postman in his small town of Greendale. One day a new boss takes over the postal facility wanting to modernize it. Postman Pat is busy trying to compete as a contestant in a British Talent show. He tries to balance his loyalties with the promise of a singing career, only to find he has betrayed his family, friends, and postal customers by ignoring the danger of his new boss who creates the Patbot 3000 to replace him & wants to use Postman Pat to promote it. The movie is silly, with cheesy dialog, and animation that is past it's prime. Sadly, it is not even in the same class as The Sponge Bob movie. If you are a fan of the original TV show it is very much a close translation.

Moya W (kr) wrote: This was an averagely entertaining comedy about the obstacles of having and raising a child. Somewhat childish and lame in some scenes, but entertaining nonetheless.
Tsukasa A (ca) wrote: The comedy set on the British home front during the war is full of British humor and enjoyable. Innocence of kids and humorous performance of Sarah and other actors save the movie from darkness of the war.

Bheema D (fr) wrote: The first nine minutes are excellent and haunting, there are a couple nice pieces by Ennio Morricone and Lee Van Cleef is a good actor. For these things, it earns it's 2 stars. But can it truly earn the other 3 when everything else bored me literally to sleep? I don't know man.
