So I just finished watching THIS.
aaaaaand. I have to say I was a bit of a let-down with Robert’s role, cuz I always assumed from the poster that although Mr. Carlyle was dressed like a priest, he would still somehow whip out the guns and be a BAMF on a killing spree. but i guess him turning out to just be a good guy in a bad situation was fine too. he did pull a couple of BAMF stunts for his role so. overall I’m pleased. and yes I watched it because of him… but I’m not judging the whole film on just his performance and role.
so a lot of people keep saying that this movie is stupid or that it’s shit. and okay, i haven’t seen Battle Royale, but hey, an action film is an action film. I’d like to see the analysis from all the haters, as to WHY this is a “stupid film”. To me, I see a decent plot, pretty decent characters and lots of explosions and blood. I mean, action film right? about killing people? so, I’m pretty sure they’ve got that much down. Now I’m not saying that it was amazing, and i wouldn’t give it 5 stars but it’s definitely above average. I could sit through the whole thing without cringing at bad acting or story, audio was clean, shots were pretty good. it was a pretty good film. not the greatest, but pretty good and fun to watch.
OVERALL I’d say about a 3.5? And a watch if you like action films with blood and killing and stuff. If mindless action isn’t your game, then skip it. If you’re in it for Mr. Carlyle, well, he’s always entertaining, but even then, if you’re not into the action stuff, it’s not exactly his best work, so you could probably skip it if you wanted to. Anyway, I don’t even know why I’m writing this much about it. It’s just a movie.
