It Was Just Too Close To The Mark As It Verged On A Snuff Film..Which Isn't My Cuppa-Tea. Scored Points & Lost Points For Realism Of A Distasteful Nature.
The Hardman Statham Does His Best To Look Brooding & Uncaring For The Rest Of The Idiot Cast, Having To Save Their Assess Numerous Times..While This Is A Tried & True Method Of Action Films..It's Not Enough To Save It, But It Is Still Good To Watch It All Play Out. So It's An Average At Best Kind Of Film.
It Has The Typical Comparison Against Some Tarintino'esk Methods Of Film-Making, That Being Blunted & Unsubtle, Unstable Violence, A Classic Off-Kilter Soundtrack Matching The Equally Oddball Cast Of Characters, A Chopped Up & Out-Of-Order / Different Perspectives Storyline, A Few Red-Herring Villians & Of Course Some Solid One-Off, Dialogue Infused Selillique Performaces, Pouring Out Creepy Character Dynamics. It's Pretty Much A Different Flavour Of That Tarintino 'Pulp-Fiction' Ice-Cream, But Boy Does It Taste Pretty Damn Good. Won't Let You Down As Long As You're In The Right Frame Of Mind. I Can See How Though Some Viewers, Just Like With Other Similar Genred Gore-Infused Classic-Gangsta Films, Will Find This Tired & Something They Will Struggle Yo Stick With.
Liked The Focus On The Female Point Of View, Being Married To Men Taking On Adventure At It's Most Extreme Level. How All Individual Astronauts Manage This Stress Was Also Explored, But Not As Well Done. The Visual's & Music Alongside It Is Masterfully Crafted. Some Parts Required More Dialogue To Tied Scenes Together..Which Could Have Thredded The Overall Story A Little Better, But It Stands Up As Very Good In-Spite Of Any Editing Nuances, Which Could Have Paced Things Along. Thankfully, It Doesnt Get All Too Boring.
All A Bit Too Random Really, With A Story (By Simpsons Producer J.L. Brooks) That Dances Around "Lisa" (Witherspoon) As She Explores Peoples Lives She Is Randomly Dragged Into. The Film Flops Tho Because The Script Just Doesn't Get Any Rhythm Going. Kinda Like An Orchestra With No Harmony, The Well-Known Actors Generally Play Their Parts Well, But Bringing It All Together Just Doesn't Seem To Gell.
