Speaking as an English former sixth form student: painfully, hilariously and very true to life.
Starts like Carpenter, ends like Bruckheimer, with wrist mounted deus ex machina. Bad? No: Unspectacular.
Breathtaking, balletic action… but everything else is utter gibberish, seemingly treating you with contempt.
I swear Luke Goss was never this awesome back in the day. Tekken? It’s okay.
Some films are exactly the sum of their parts. This is one of those times.
Awesome film. Probably a good idea to keep hammers away from me for a while…
Doesn’t hide the seems so well… and it’s very style over substance… but what style!
Worse than the first, better than the second. If you haven’t: read the books first.
Monahan’s raw talent without Scorsese’s finess. The Departed, it’s not. Worth your time, it is.
No subtitles, more CG, but otherwise, well, I kept expecting people to start speaking Swedish.
