Fast-Paced, Shrewdly Presses All the Viewer's Buttons: Takes You on Quite a Cinematic Ride!
2 August 2016 | by See all my reviews

........................................................from Pasto,Colombia...Via: L.A. CA., CALI, COLOMBIA and ORLANDO, FL

Don't you just hate those "friends" who belly laugh harder than anyone in the theater, and then, making conversation after the movie, you ask them, "Wow, you really enjoyed that, didn't you?" and they snap back, "What, are you nuts? That was the worst flick I've seen in years!" Well, that's definitely NOT me.

Despite priding myself on usually disliking a lot of the JUNK churned out by Hollywood, after seeing the FACULTY, and looking into the depths of my soul, I must admit, begrudgingly, it is a rather entertaining movie! Fast-paced, shrewdly pressing all the viewer's buttons, in the right order, it does exactly what its producers want it to: Take you on a cinematic ride!

Still, I'd like to issue TWO Brief Warnings:

1) If You're a Salma Hayek FAN.....Don't Blink! (You just might miss her altogether!) T.O.S.T. = About 4 or 5 minutes!

2) DON'T See IT a Second Time! It's like driving a car with no air in your tires! Believe me, I've tried it...Just doesn't work!

...Certainly, the first time, though, you should have some good fun!

6*...ENJOY/DISFRUUTELA! (Even if it's ONLY ONCE!)

Any comments, questions or observations, in English o en Español, are most welcome!
