Don't ignore this film
This movie will remind you of Man of Fire and the Bourne series in one. This movie is fast paced and has kills and fights every minute. Liam is relentless and unforgiving. If I had to pick something bad the first ten minutes does foreshadow way too much, but once the action starts it's FIRST rate. Now why I'm mad: This movie was supposed to be released in September 2008. For unknown reasons FOX studios pushed it to January 2009, which for those of you who don't know, January and February are the "Dump Months". This is the time when production studios dump the movie's they know are flops or don't expect any money from. FOX are idiots. In my opinion this movie would have been one of the top three action films of 2008, but it's being completely disrespected with the likes of Paul Blart and Bride wars. GO SEE THIS MOVIE. Liam Nieson is a bad ass, the plot is original and the action is up there with the Bourne series. It's awesome to see a good guy who'll hurt ANYBODY to win. Liam doesn't hesitate which is a rare thing to see in good guys. Go see it. Go see it. Go see it.
Classic Monster Movie
If you ever liked King Kong, Godzilla, Zombies, or Jurasic Park this is a GREAT B movie.
The acting is awesome, the story is entertaining, the plot it somewhat believable*, and the scrit is funny and original.
It is extremely enjoyable watching the cast try to figure out their own situation over a 3 day period while you the viewer know nothing more than they do. The unexpected monsters are a surprise to the cast and the audience. The cast not only tries to figure out survival but also why. The cast and the audience only know that monsters are eating people, "We have got to get out." If you can imagine being in a small town that out of no where is threatened by monsters of some kind, what would you believe and how would you except it. "I vote for outer space. No way these are local boys." If this sounds like you, your in for a treat. The cast constanly debates on the orgins, the plan, the escape, the mind set, and even what they should name the creatures. The comical way the cast deals with the confusion of unknown monsters is beautiful. An A+ B movie.
*The best part is that they don't try to over explain by creating some lame back story for the monsters. The monsters are just there, except it and deal with it. Some of the characters can't move on without wondering where they came from while others could care less only concerned with how to escape. This undoubtedly conveys most of the audiences opinions.
We Own the Night (2007)
Great script, bad direction
Great original script poorly directed. I am a cop and found countless inaccuracies. Duvall didn't seem to want to be in the movie. Eva has no range, she has played the same sexy and emotionally deep Latino role every time I've seen her. Wahlberg and Pheonix both gave decent performances, although because the bad direction, at times did change their demeanor to expressions that did not fit the scene. The script was actually original. A respected police family has a black sheep who must go into the witness relocation program. Of course bring on the inevitable reconciliation. The inaccuracies of police operation were laughable. You don't storm building without watching the back. You don't recruit people who want revenge for they're family with no training. You don't wire somebody without informing them to lay down if the police kick in the door. You don't talk about who your informant is when a drug lord sits in a car next to you. Can still be enjoyable if you only focus on the plot which was good.
