Im keeping this sweet, it sickens me how much this was pushed, and how much people brought the hype. Awful film, again will smith attempting his shot at an oscar, like seven pounds, oh when will he win an oscar??? With films like this.......never.
This again proves nolans genius, taking a mix of well known actors and blending with the lesser known, and it might be this film that pushes hardy up the hollywood rankings, I saw him in the take (martina coles adaption) and asked everyone to watch it due to his incredible performance, unfortunately after a sequence of films he was never picked really acknowledged as a heavyweight actor (I blame chris pine) but outlaw where he says very little and batman where he wears a mask ironically boasts his acting genius. Im giving this a 10/10 as its worthy if more than its current 8.5 status. But not as much as the dark knight ........thank you heath ledger for putting batman back on the map
Originally written for will smith, I now see why he gracefully declined to take tarentino up on his offer on playing the part of the lawless django. Thisvfilm has everything, and what it lacks in......well nothing it makes up in, action, screenplay, cinematics, storyboard and sound production. Tarentino got everything spot on here and even threw in some humor for good measure. I dare anyone to challenge what this film couldnt bring to the big screen, or any screen for that matter. The supporting cast is incredible with all dialogue followed up with some of the finest acting I have seen for sometime. 10/10
When the opening sequence saw johnson (the rock) throw a 300 pound man around a jail room like a swingball I knew I had to enter this film with an open mind, this was capped off with diesels mid air baseball like dive across a freeway catching his beloved in mid air. An overall easy watching action film that crossed the transporter into die hard, but unfortunately fell short of both of these films. Over the top action sequences is an understatement, fast and furious 1 /2 comparable due to the use of cars is an over statement. This was a series of films built on thevfoundation of racing cars, not stopping crime, thats why I put this film in a ranking position no higher than disneys flop of cars 2. Buy this on dvd when it hits the refuced section of any local supermarket. 5/10
