Mindless action movie with no real story, 19 January 2017

I will start by saying i didn't hate this movie. It was entertaining enough however there wasn't much of a story and no character development. It felt like a inferior clone of the fast and furious franchise, Vin Diesel basically plays the same character but without the family feel of the team that fast and furious has.

The supporting characters didn't have as much screen time as i would have liked which might have made the movie better as this was pretty much the Vin Diesel show. Toni Colette's character and acting was horrible and i feel she was a very bad miscast as i do usually like her acting. I would have preferred to have seen more of Nina Dobrev's character as she was actually a bit interesting and comedic.

The stunts were unrealistic but that is to be expected in today's action movies. It's an OK movie but should have been a lot better as the original XXX i quite enjoyed but i found myself almost bored in parts of this. If you are into action movies its still worth watching but just don't go in expecting it to be great.

I give it a 5/10. It's not horrible, it's just average and forgettable.

Why all the hate!? This a great fun action movie!!!, 11 January 2017

So i just had to do a review for this when i saw there were only bad reviews. This movie is great! It's one of my favourite action movies from the 90's. And as for sequels i think it did a good job. It is a bit different but it is after all set on a cruise ship and has a different male lead.

I find it thoroughly entertaining each time i watch it which is every couple of years. It's the kind of movie you can switch off for a couple of hours and just be entertained. And the villain is great! He is absolutely crazy and i love it when they are so irrational.

So if you like fun movies that don't take themselves too seriously give this a go, i promise it's not as bad as all the other reviewers make it out to be! I give it an 8/10.

One of the best Pilot's ever!, 30 September 2014

Can i just say that so far (after one episode) i think this show is amazing and has a lot of potential to be a hit.

Unlike so many shows these days that have mildly entertaining pilot's and take a few episodes/half a season to get hooked, i was hooked after about 3 minutes of this show.

It's a fresh idea about Law students and their Criminal Law professor who teaches a class about how to defend a client who is up for murder and win. I wont say much more than that because i don't want to spoil anything for you.

Definitely worth watching even if Law shows aren't usually your thing.

Some people may say it's not realistic but perhaps thats a good thing, i thought it was clever and entertaining and really isn't that what TV shows are suppose to be?

Great action drama, 9 January 2014

In my opinion this show as well as Chicago Fire (Of which Chicago PD is a spin off of) are the best cop, paramedic and firefighter shows since Third Watch.

Chicago PD is full of action right off the bat and although it may not be the most realistic or factual cop show it is entertaining which is what TV is meant to be. If i wanted to see something realistic id watch a reality highway patrol show... ZzzZz

If you like Chicago Fire Third Watch, SVU or any of those type of shows your bound to love this!

I'm hooked and i've only seen one episode.

Whats with all the hate? I really enjoyed it!, 5 August 2013

I just watched this movie and thought it was really good. I currently have an injury so am on bed rest and have watched a lot of movies lately and am getting bored with lots of them but i found this one to be thoroughly entertaining.

The plot in my opinion was great! It was different from the average thriller and to have it be from the point of view of a 911 operator was very interesting. I think it's a profession that gets over looked a lot so it was nice to show what there lives are like.

I thought the acting was great also, Halle and Abigail both did a great job. And considering Abigail hasn't really done anything like this before i thought her performance was excellent.

Yes like any movie there were some things that if you think too hardly don't make perfect sense and maybe could have been done differently, but it was entertaining and had me in suspense the entire time. I didn't have very high expectations but was pleasantly surprised.

So i think it's definitely worth a go. It's not meant to make you think too hard it's meant to entertain you which is exactly what it does.
