Being on the lookout for new Christmas movies, I stumbled on this.
Billy Baldwin, Denise Richards, I thought it'll be alright..
Father and son trade lives, and nothing but dull, poor acting and zero laughs follow. It could and should of been better, even the smallest bit, it's not exactly a new formula for a movie plot
The acting is absolutely shocking, it's laughable at times and it'll be the only laugh you'll get, well.. unless you read Shominy's review. Now that is funny!
There are many many Christmas movies out there that are much better than this. Do yourself a favour and skip.. you'll thank me
Where to begin on this one. Oblivion is a visual treat for the first 45
minutes or so, then I got a little bored of the same thing.
What It lacks is dialogue, characters and acting. Olga Kurylenko is lucky she is pretty hot as she couldn't act her way out of a paper bag. All she manages to do in this movie is move her eyes and that's not even convincing.
If Cruise wasn't leading this shambles this movie would have fallen by the way side and went straight to DVD.
I'm a fan of Melissa Leo and what we got to see of her was nothing to write home about.
Zoe Bell, who we know for her excellent stunts and balls to the wall attitude was wasted in this role, she did nothing, didn't even speak. Huge let down.
My high hopes were trodden into the ground.. flop city. 5/10
Ah I had high hopes for this movie.. Saw it last night at a advanced screening and what a let down. Something you expect from Soderbergh but not done as well. We've already had our thriller of the year so far and that is Side Effects. It's too complicated and too much is revealed at the end that some may not be able to take it all in. Especially when you are still confused/allured by the nudity. It is a stylish film and McAvoy and Cassel put in great performances as you'd expect but this alone cannot carry an already week story. Maybe it could of been done better, I just don't know who could of fixed this story. I rate it a 6/10 - nothing special. A shame really, especially for Danny Boyle fans
I've no idea how the other reviewers rated this 7, 8 and 9 out of 10.
They're either riding Stephen doff or related to him. Weak cast, bland
story, boring execution and Dorff is just massively cringe. Dominic
Purcell and Anna Lynn what's her face.. Come on! They couldn't act
their way out of a paper bag and some child from American idol.
I wasn't expecting much.. But I got less that I anticipated. It's like cast and crew up on this movie 15 mins in.
Avoid like the plague. There are so many other they're so many other things you could be doing
Need I say more..
