You can clearly see this movie had a lot of issues during filming. Script is scattershot....poorly edited...very uneven story. Seems to be no backstory as to how everything comes together...it's never really figured out....and the end was clearly just thrown together in hopes of making a sequel. Enjoyed the first hour, but second hour really brings it down. Odd to see Pitt get involved in something that clearly wasn't ready to go from the start. Definitely disappointing.
This is what an action movie should be. Bloody..violent..non stop action, with the cast having all bought in to the absurdity of it all. This is an absolute blast from start to finish. If you like action movies, THIS is the type of movie you'll love.
Absurd? Yup. Over the top? Absolutely? Way too long? That too. Another Die Hard rip off? No doubt. Still, it could be worse. Tatum and Foxx are fine, and as long as you check your brain at the door, you shouldn't have a problem using this to pass the time.
Quite simply...a masterpiece. Hard to imagine you'll see a better movie this year. This a flawless, visually magnificent film. Cuaron's direction is perfect. This is Bullock's best performance ever. It brings you to a whole other world, making you feel as if you're right there with them. Needs to be seen on the big screen to be truly appreciated. Destined to become a classic. Best movie I've seen in years.
