Overly gratuitous for no real reason. The special effect are no pun intended - god awful. Performances are over the top yet the strongest aspect to production with Cage, Fichtner and Heard all putting in decent performances, even if I don't think the latter has ever proven her acting abilities. Production itself looks terrible and downright horrible with the intended effect rather redundant, even the action sequences are sub-par.
this is the kind of role Nic Cage is made for, if you take it at face value this movie is great, its corny with over the top violence. Like 'Shoot Em Up' this movie doesnt take itself seriously, so if you do, your a prude
It was exactly what it was supposed to be, it was a funride, the Grindhouse epic, it just hit all the buttons. It wasn't looking for an Oscar it was just looking to make people have fun and that's what's missing from so many action flicks.
SUPERB. After I saw this I had to go tell all of my friends to see this movie. Even though they all aren't answering my texts anymore, I know that everybody has seen this golden film that brought my childhood dreams back to life and made me feel like a tender 8 year old boy. 6/5 Stars if I could.
Way better than I heard lots of fun shame it bombed at box office, Some nice entertaining scenes, I can't comment on the 3D as I watched the 2D version but can't imagine it being much better, A little silly sometimes but worth a watch.
