a lot to think about while watching,a lot to watch while thinking !!!
27 July 2006 | by torrettaSee all my reviews

I really like movies like this I guess I better explain my opinion...

In this movie I saw : - action - fun - surprise - a great plot - guns/explosions - fast cars/pretty girls - good actors

that's why this is much better than most American action movies !

it's such an improved 007 movie. there's a lot to think about while watching and there's a lot to watch while u think !!!

people who criticize movies like this better try to understand why they are unable to appreciate it.

It's a huge problem of taste skill,many people are not able to love a good movie anymore

many other action movies are as "original" and "tasty" as a Mac Donalds hamburger is...San Antonio is a real meal,different tastes,maybe you will not like all of them separate from the others,but you will definitely appreciate the whole thing !

:-)

take care

Matt
