Or that one scene in IRREVERSIBLE.
You know the one.
No, not THAT one, you fucking sicko.
Only good thing in Boogie Nights was the cock shot at the end!
The film writing at Popmatters can be a little all over the place, but I have no problem believing this review.
The headline says it all. Gave it a 5 out of 10. I might rent/stream it eventually just to see if the action bits and Brian Cranston are any good.
No shit. That first paragraph feels like it is/was randomly forced by the generation of sentences for coherence non-making.
It seems to be getting panned by the critics. WIth the lack of buzz and Box Office tracking in the MId Twenties this seems headed for disaster. SONY is going take a bath on this one with it's 200 Million dollar budget.
Last time they give Len Wiseman this much money to play around with.
Gah, I 'm not sure that's possible even with Wiseman behind the camera.
I saw that on Encore the other day, and was amazed at how much it looked like a cheap, made-for-TV movie. I mean, that "car chase" between Ferrell and Moynihan toward the end is just a complete joke. I've seen him do great, vibrant work, but too often when it comes to US films where he's the lead, he just slaps on this somnambulant generic American persona. Blech.
This is shaping up to be one of those movies everyone completely forgets exists within 5 years or so. I could see, when the 25th Anniversary download or whatever comes out of the orginal film in 2017, people saying how relieved they are this was never remade.
