Asif H (nl) wrote: Decent flick. It is almost `Ghulam`/`Footpath` meets `Rab Bana Di Jodi`

Jim M (au) wrote: I wanted to like this movie but try as I might I just couldn't. Ray Liotta was wooden and the other actors tried but the story was a mess and it got tiring watching the them try to make something interesting out non comedic remake of "Raising Arizona" it was a combination of trying too hard and not trying at all depending on who was involved...and when the ending came it was a relief

Tsubaki S (fr) wrote: Based on a very infamous historical event, Silmido is a big-budget energetic action flick. And yet, despise said approach to such spicy material, it works. Maybe because for such a hard-hitting piece like this, an "art/house" approach would do nothing but sedate the spirit of the story.A mixed bunch of criminals and civilians are send to an island to suffer a brutal trainning in order to kill the North Korean president of that time. This fueled by a failed attempt from the North to do the same with SK president, which made the whole nation go out to the streets and burn pictures of the NK president and all that jazz.But the whole operation is shut down after the tension cools down, and now the goverment want's to put to sleep the same blood-thirsty beast they created. At that point the film takes some predictable, and also some not-so-predictable twists. Yet it manages to remain quite beliavable for the most part.The film can't escape some cheap patriotic moments, yet everything makes perfect sense in the context of the story. A group of men who have nothing else to live for will grab any lifesaver they can to stay a float. The irony of the nationalistic brain-wash these men get impacts to the reality of a country that couldn't care less about using human guinea pigs to satisfy the ego of said country.The film also works thanks to the solid cast. So, Silmido might not be the most objective history lesson one could get, but it's certainly one that is not easy to ignore. Any nation must be careful for what they wish, because it can always happen, in one way or another. Usually, in the nastiest way possible.

Maryann F (fr) wrote: The handful of not so good skits is totally made up by the great quality of the rest. I only watched it because it has David Allen Greer in it and spoke of it on Loveline with Doctor Drew but I'm glad I did. It's funny and worth watching.

Jon B (jp) wrote: Hey, look at that. Sean Connery in a reasonably good western movie alongside Goldfinger co-star Honor Blackman! Random drifter Shalako must guide snooty European aristocrats out of the dangerous Apache territory when they are mistakenly lead there by their escort on a hunt. Several gunfights and face-offs with said Apaches, arguments with said aristocrats who begin to slowly learn their manners in treacherous territory and love scenes with Brigitte Bardot (who gets progressively hotter as the movie goes on) ensue. Plus, the movie has a memorable introductory song that gets in your head: "SHA-LA-KOOOOOO, SHALAKOOOO!!!" The movie may be a little long, but it's a real treat for all you Connery lovers out there.

Isael J (au) wrote: The best performance by Jake Gyllenhaal by far, one of the best movies I've ever seen. Visually appealing, thrilling, and extremely creepy. Nightcrawler is a different type of movie that will forever be one of my favorite movies of all time

David C (fr) wrote: Excellent movie. The story is great and so is the acting. There is no better actress that could play the part of Tiffany better than Jennifer Lawrence.

Paul D (de) wrote: A "WASP" or white North American Christian movie. Pure dribble.
