Britta V (br) wrote: I dont know what problem the critics had with this movie but I thought it was amazing. Not at all what I was expecting. Action packed and anything with Christoph Waltz is usually worth the time, however Alexander and Margot were fantastic in this. I would definitely recommend

Daniel A (br) wrote: A decent story let down by its execution, Holy Rollers is well acted (particularly by Eisenberg) but leaves no lasting impression on the viewer, and will be all but forgotten by the time the credits finish rolling. Throughout the film there are flashes of something much better than the overall effect of the film, mostly thanks to director Kevin Asch, but these mere moments of greatness are never sustained beyond this, making Holy Rollers a disappointingly insubstantial movie.

Lee P (us) wrote: This isn't a great movie by any means but after I stepped on a nest of yellow jackets and go stung 25 times I watched this movie and it helped cheer me up a little.

Mark K (kr) wrote: I surprisingly didn't hate this. Some songs in it are actually pretty good. Not a great movie but its passable.

Nik M (es) wrote: Bringing Out the Dead picks up its style as it goes down its road of slight madness. Nicolas Cage's character isn't entirely translated well but is still understandable and with a purpose. The film is lit really well and the shots are put together in a fashion of its own. It should manage to deliver itself to most audiences, despite it not being among Scorsese's strongest.

Dave J (kr) wrote: Friday, June 6, 2014 (1988) Bat 21 WAR Story based from an actual person by the name of William C. Anderson from his own book of the very same name, who not only provided the screenplay but was also credited as a consultant. Takes place during the Vietnam War, with 'weapons countermeasures expert' Lieutenant Colonel Iceal "Ham" Hambleton(Gene Hackman) becoming stranded in the jungle after the plane he was in was shot down who appears to be the only survivor equipped with him is a walkie-talkie. And it is up to Captain Bartholomew Clark (Danny Glover) flying a "Cessma 337 Skylander" to keep him from either getting captured for a possible information leak or killed. And to keep each of their actual identities a secret, they each have to communicate with each other by using codenames- "Bat 21" as the movie is called is Hambleton's code name with Clark's code name is called "Bird dog". The scenes between Hackman and Glover are genuinely worth watching since both are veteran actors, but the rhythm in terms of the story structure itself by producers and anybody else who also wanted their two-cents in is convoluted since viewers never find out how the Vietnamese army ever find out that "Bat 21" is really a 'weapons countermeasures expert'! And the other thing that was very troubling was near the end when the movie was trying to convince viewers that the village was isolated, and it wasn't. That entire scene was dumb and was obviously there because producers wanted it to be there to liven the experience since they didn't think that to have two great actors correspond to one another was entertaining enough. 2 out of 4 stars

Mark W (us) wrote: I wasn't to taken back by this film... I'm quite a big fan of the Giallo genre and love watching what these classic Italian directors can come up with. Although this was a very watch-able movie when comparing it to other titles in the genre, it doesn't stand out as one of my favourites... Overall though a good watch, with some expected tense moments and some pretty decent murder action scenes.

Hugo G (ag) wrote: 5.7/10 The movie looked like it could be a fairly bloody and entertaining one, and it was indeed. Although it was kind of your average slasher movie, it still had some tension and effective scares, while also being bloody but not gory. The preform aces were good, nothing outstanding. But still, it was fun to watch and somewhat better than I expected. ~February 21, 2015~
