A rich merchant, Antonio is depressed for no good reason, until his good friend Bassanio comes to tell him how he's in love with Portia. Portia's father has died and left a very strange will: only the man that picks the correct casket out of three (silver, gold, and lead) can marry her. Bassanio, unfortunately, is strapped for cash with which to go wooing, and Antonio wants to help, so Antonio borrows the money from Shylock, the money-lender. But Shylock has been nursing a grudge against Antonio's insults, and makes unusual terms to the loan. And when Antonio's business fails, those terms threaten his life, and it's up to Bassanio and Portia to save him.

Grant H (au) wrote: Awesome movie. David Wain and Michael Showalter have created a film that is so self-aware of what it is and how bad it is, it's hilarious. It's an outrageous parody/spoof/new entry into the rom-com genre, and there's never a dull moment, supported by fantastic performances from its entire ensemble cast.

Geo B (au) wrote: Well acted but poorly written. The character development did not ring true.. no t consistent throughout the movie. Like the closeted homosexual guy suddenly trying to kiss the straight married guy. Also the takeouts with the singers was distracting, as if the story was not good enough to be interesting..
Yash B (mx) wrote: Loads of fun with tons of explosive action and special effects but cliched at moments along with some iffy acting. Its not the best action movie in the world, but certainly not the worst. It's a silly and over the top action movie that doesn't have the best acting or dialogue, but that doesn't mean there isn't fun to be had with it.
Luis M (mx) wrote: A very intense movie with good acting and a proper development of the plot. A film with the sadism as a main premise, adresses from a very crude and visceral perspective.Pain becomes a drug and therefore and addiction also. Nevertheless a dose of luck will be necessary to overcome the scenario and the situation.You might like or hate this movie, but it undoubtedly will not leave you indifferent.

Le dieron muchos palos en su da, quizs porque prometa ms de lo que ofreca, como ocurre en la mayora de las ocasiones, pero ha envejecido mucho mejor que otras obras mejor puntuadas. Hay que destacar que probablemente (sin haber visto su filmografa entera) sea una de las peores actuaciones de Ben Affleck, y que adems hay un abuso de las escenas de accin que en ocasiones roza lo absurdo. Por lo dems se parte de una premisa curiosa, que aunque en su desarrollo contenga muchos agujeros, resulta entretenida siempre que uno no le de demasiadas vueltas a la cabeza.

Dustin P (kr) wrote: What do you get when you combine the writing of Stephen King, the make-up effects of Tom Savini, and the direction of George A. Romero? You get an anthology of horror stories in the form of Creepshow.All of these forces were in the prime of their careers and churned out a unique horror experience. It's what I would call "a fun horror film". It's got scares and gore, but it doesn't take itself too seriously. It's a tribute to the EC Comics stories like Tales From The Crypt, The Vault Of Horror, and The Haunt Of Fear from the 1950's.The first story is about a guy who comes back from the grave to kill his family members all while repeatedly asking "where's my cake?". It's got some good make-up effects, but other than that, it's forgettable.The next one is more comedic and features none other than Stephen King himself. He plays a dimwit who discovers a meteor. However, the meteor makes everything grow vegetation. It's interested to see something as simple as plant-life become frightening.The third is about a crate that is found with a deadly creature inside. That's all I'm saying about this one. It's the best part of the film, in my opinion.The fourth story is about a husband who plots to kill his wife and her lover. It's an interesting way to try and kill someone. More fun make-up effects on this one. Leslie Nielsen is surprisingly effective as a serious villain.The last story is about a rich germaphobe who gets terrorized by cockroaches. A LOT of cockroaches. This is one is more disgusting than scary.There's also a short story that starts and ends the film. It's about a stern father who disapproves of his son's horror comic book. It's a good way of introducing the stories and wrapping the movie up rather than just throwing these stories together haphazardly.This is a film for horror buffs. I don't think it would appeal to most casual fans of the horror genre. It's highly stylized in the comic book style. There are moments where a character will scream in a close-up shot, the background will look like cartoon lightning with bright colors, and it dissolves into an actual comic book panel. Horror fans will find this to be fun, while casual fans will likely find it to be corny and laughable. If you really appreciate horror, give this one a try. If you only occasionally watch horror films, this probably won't be your cup of tea.

Jc E (br) wrote: Excellent horror film with a great story and brilliant acting from John Cusack as the cocky writer of ghost stories, Mike Enslin and Samuel L Jackson, as Mr Olin, the cautious hotel manager of Dolphin Hotel. Never in the world would I expect the Carpenters classic nostalgia " We've only just begun" incongruously used as the recurring spooky and haunting song in the haunted room 1408. Not the typical haunted stories with macabre ghosts. Rather it were the painful memories of Mike Enslin, his deceased daughter of cancer being the worst, that would plague Mike over and over again like 'groundhog day' that was the most hurtful and unbearable. The best scene was the playful banter between Mr Olin and Mr Mike, one trying to dissuade the other not to venture into the room. In the meantime, not only was Mikes curiosity heightened but also us audience.

Many times it feels like we are getting something new from the (at the point) overdone negative Vietnam movie (is thats a genre) and then it gets uncomfortably bad. Sean penn is a great villan and Fox is a great good guy.
