World War Z
The Bling Ring
Jack the Giant Slayer
21 And Over
A stealth epic, framing an urban jungle and making its own kind of contemporary history by pairing acting giants Robert DeNiro and Al Pacino in what has arguably become the preminent cops-and-robbers movie. [Blu-ray]
With all due respect, but I do not see anything epic in this movie. I think the biggest disappointment is that all characters are stereotypes, everything is predictable. Throw in numerous scenes that are straight B-movie territory, like the bank robbery and subsequent getaway, the miraculous escape of Val Kilmer's character, and the ending, which is so bad that you wonder if that was really it, the ending, and you must feel sorry for great actors having to act out such a horribly bad script.

How do you know that I fail at life ? That is in YOUR head, so it says more about you than me...Back to the movie: what do you think of the scene in the hotel, where De Niro is confronted by the LAPD. The LAPD is one man. The LAPD sends out one, apparently inexperienced, officer to arrest one of the most dangerous crimininals in the country. De Niro just...turns around, manhandles him and...escapes. Do you agree that this is C-movie territory ? Or the scene where Val Kilmer is about to be arrested, with tens of cops being around, and still...he escapes, they just...let him go. You must admit that this was...bad. How about the shootout after the bank robbery, where thousands of bullets fail to put even the slightest scratch one the robbers. Until Pacino downs one of the gangsters, with an incredible shot, right through the eye, and the gangster, dead already, because you are dead before the shot is heard when you are hit like that, goes down sooo gently...because, yes, he is holding a little girl in his arms, and she must not be hurt.Or back to the very beginning: how likely is it that an experienced guy like McCauley, who plans everything to the detail, lets an apparent serial killer enter his team ? And how exactly did he get away on the parking lot ? He just...vanished...The movie is full of these kind of scenes, I thought it was not worthy of the actors, the budget, the director and, ultimately, us, the movie lovers...

Your reasons are shit. The LAPD had no time to send more men after De Niro in the Hotel. Kilmer escaped because his fake ID checked out. The robbers had assault rifles, the cops were stuck with pistols. Plus, Kilmer gets shot before Pacino kills Sizemore. Sizemore did not go down gently. The serial killer did vanish, he was hiding in the dark. You are not a movie lover.
