Instead, they give a pseudo-scientific description of marine environmental issues, and a colonialist view of South African culture. Newsflash: sardine biomass has been depleted offshore due to large-scale industrial trawling, not individual community members.

The story is a classic one of 2 people who should be at odds with one another, but they are forced to work together in order to survive. I tend to like these kind of stories, so there was a lot I enjoyed in Enemy Mine. Willis and Jerry's willingness to totally trust one another was kind of sudden and abrupt, but since I knew it was coming I didn't mind too much.The effects, well let's just be honest, they suck. The space sequences are obvious models on green screen (or rear projection.) The puppets are clunky at best and lose some intimidation factor when you can tell they so obviously aren't real. But the big sci-fi stuff, like space battles and snarling pit monsters, are kind of secondary in this film. This is a movie about 2 characters and their interactions with one another. Therefore, the makeup team made up for a lot of the other effects' shortcomings by totally transforming Louis Gossett, Jr. for all the closeup conversations he has throughout the film.I liked some of the things that the main characters bonded over and how they saw similarities in each other's culture. The connection they established based on religion and traditions was probably the best part of the whole film. Yet I felt something lacking when they tried to hit emotional moments in the second act. By the end I finally got locked into the emotion, but it took all that time (and the introduction of a new character.)The cast was solid (I like Dennis Quaid a lot.) The writing was not bad, and the voiceover exposition was limited so it didn't bother me too much. Overall I enjoyed Enemy Mine, but not as much as my sci-fi favorites. In many ways it felt like a really good episode of a Star Trek or a Stargate TV show. That's not a bad thing, but doesn't set it apart as a huge achievement in science fiction cinema.

Moriarty) after a card game goes sour.This movie is hilarious (I mean the script is amazing) the Cockney slang (there is a scene in subtitles for the less Cockney fluent) and the typical British banter throughout the movie makes these characters relatable (yes I can quote majority of the movie). I feel as though I need to mention one of my favourite characters of the movie Rory Breaker (Vas Blackwood) "The mad man with an afro" and his scenes with Nick the Greek (Stephen Marcus) are hysterical.Back to the foursome who are desperate to find a solution for their seemingly impossible situation the lads are forced to deal with some unsavoury types (more gangsters and crooks) as they come with an idea that could save them from losing their fingers. This then acts as a platform for movie to merge each subplot together to form a delicious cocktail of guns, gore, gangsters and a lot of weed.For anybody watching this that isn't familiar with England, yes it really is that gloomy and wet (not an editing mistake).This movie does have an epic soundtrack (at the start when Ocean Colour Scene comes in really sets the tone of the movie) the tracks are carefully placed throughout the movie (just wait for the Zorba the Greek scene, it's a brutal ballet).Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels is one of my favourite movies of all time and has everything you'd want from a British gangster movie. With running time of 107 minutes this movie somehow manages to tie everything up nicely within this time, nothing is rushed or longed out. If you haven't realised by now but this movie is for 18's and over (as you'd expect from any decent gangster movie).Brit Classic
Paul L (mx) wrote: In and of itself, this is your standard crime drama plot, not unlike what you'd expect to see on any TV crime show...Kojak and Hawaii Five-O come to mind. The twist here is the where and when, Nazi Germania circa 1964...with the Gestapo as the "Good Guys" police force. I have always enjoyed films featuring Rutger Hauer, and the performances are generally good. Little details such as a Beatles poster might catch the viewer by surprise. Hard the believe it's been 20 years since this movie came out on HBO. I do own this on VHS tape, but wish it would be released on DVD since my VCR quit working a few years ago.
