An experiment! We all watched the same movie, and now I have to review it. Which is A LOT of pressure on me, since for once you have all seen the movie as recently as me and probably understood it better. Oh well, you can think of this as a starting point for a discussion, not the end.
I’m awake, I’ve had a bagel for breakfast, I am ready to come back to this movie with spoilers. I already put up a “no spoilers” review, you can read that if you want to go in really fresh, there are two big twists you might not want to miss out on. However, the majority of the film is just action sequences you could predict from the trailer, so it may not be worth avoiding spoilers.
Well, this was a pointless movie! As in, the whole plot happens, and then you realize at the end “wait, that had no effect on anything”. Not in a clever ironic way, but like the scriptwriter didn’t think it through. And that’s on top of the themes and characters just not being what they promised to be. (no spoilers review here)
Well, this was a bad movie. Not a “I want to die” bad movie, more like a “maybe I will just take a little nap until it is over” bad movie. Great actors, wasn’t their fault, but terrible script and terrible direction, just boring and unengaging.
