No real need for a remake but this is competent, except for the decision to introduce Bob Fosse type dancers into crucial action scenes. Maybe the most moronic decision I’ve ever seen in a bigger budget movie.
Maybe the worst Liam Neeson movie ever. What a turkey. You got drive trucks through the plot, we actually moaned at times. How this move got over half good reviews is beyond understanding. That the audience score on a Liam Neeson movie is lower than critics tells you how bad it is and how the critics screwed the pooch.
Why has Dom become bad? Good enough to move us through this movie and quite well I might add. I could care less about the car chases but the story itself was smart enough to keep this franchise engaging.
Emily Watson as the dumbest person in the room? Why would anyone raise their hand as say “excuse me” when an Apple like company not only wants to end all privacy but make voting mandatory? How the hell do these people get money for these scripts, and find quality actors to say the words? A painful insulting movie.
Classic dissonance between critics, 81 percent, and viewers, 54 percent.
Murky disguised as meaningful and actually empty. Slow long stretches with a good scene here and there. I was rolling my eyes during the endless text exchanges that led nowhere. And Kristen Stewart unrolls her mumbling, awkward persona that doesn’t make anything better.
Wasted opportunity, long slow boring scenes between lively scenes that are not especially well told or believable. The ending is actually groan worthy, which is a shame since the story is such a potentially good one.
The most depressing two hours and 12 minutes of the year. Spending that much time with a monster is not what I would call entertainment. And she has plenty of company in the despicable category with other characters. Ugh.
It certainly gets points for being smarter than the typical alien movie, and I was engrossed until toward the end. When the answers start coming I decided I was either too dumb to appreciate the murk, or two smart to accept it.
These are fun movies if you can ever get over the fact that the character of Jack Reacher created in the books has absolutely no physical relationship with Cruise and almost no connection with his actual conduct. I can’t.
More dumb than good. It wasn’t a painful two hours but it wasn’t much of a thrill. We are offered the promise at the end that the third entry will have our heroes take on the universe to defeat the evil. Pray it doesn’t happen.
