(br) wrote: Jamie picked this out. She got sucked in. It is awful.
(mx) wrote: Probably one of the best comedies you've never heard of. Harry Connick, Jr. is a "Danny Boy" singing Irish mobster and Sarah Jessica Parker is his unfliching assassin girlfriend. It's a riot.
(ca) wrote: This is one of the better Die Hard rip-offs that manages to succeed with good characters some memorable moments, action and dialogue that solidify it as a pretty good action/popcorn movie.
(ag) wrote: A harrowing tale of an American woman who is trapped in a foreign country with no means of leaving.
(ca) wrote: Well, at least it had topless girls from an era when women still had real breasts.
(au) wrote: Secuela se "Chabelo y Pepito contra los monstruos" que parte de la entrega anterior. Al desenmascarar una gran conspiracion, Chabelo (Javier Lopez) y Pepito (Martin Ramos) se convierten en agentes secretos que buscan acabar con el crimen organizado. Al igual que la primera parte, esta cinta es tanto hipnotica como divertida.
(it) wrote: Excellent Film Noir in the English Fog Joan fontaine is so beautiful & bewichting and Burt Lancaster is Great as The Beast of Pray created by Society and it's refreshing to see the Woman as the Healing Angel instead of the Troublebringing Femme Fatale Great Soundtrack
(gb) wrote: i only chose to watch this because the guardian gave it 5 stars, and i thought, well, any film capable of getting a 5 star review is worth watching. i wasn't very convinced during the first 5-10 minutes, thought it was going to be a bit too twee for me. but then, oh. the plot starts developing and it gets really really good!! quite dark, full of action, and the best thing is they just don't stop at anything: a kid gets shot, a grannie axes a nazi officer.... yes, A GRANNIE AXES A NAZI OFFICER!! any film that has a grannie with an axe is bound to be a good one, isn't it? it's not gore at all, almost no blood or anything but they still get away with it! a great surprise, so glad i decided to watch this. sometimes reviewers are right!
(es) wrote: An excellent movie, often overlooked as one of the first examples of Vietnam being brought home to American soil. The climax works superbly, and if you give into the ride it's a great trip
