Movie Ratings and Reviews

Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace

I loved watching this movie because it is purely a sci-fi classic. Apparently all of the negative reviews are from those who don't appreciate science fiction. So please, do yourself a great favor and don't write a review!!!! Just because you don't like science fiction doesn't mean that that whole world doesn't like it.

Cowboys & Aliens

Movie was extremely entertaining, but is ruined as a result of the plot shifting between the genres of westerns and science fiction.


This movie is just a lame attempt on a remake of the 300.
The special effects were an overkill and the plot seemed to go nowhere. The 3D seemed to add nothing to the movie as well.

Jack and Jill

This comedy was pretty juvenile because it exclusively contained bathroom humor. If you are stuck with taking care of some children for the weekend, then it would be a good choice at the theater. Other than that, this movie is not even worth seeing on dvd either.

A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas

Hilarious movie that kept me laughing the whole time. It was obscene and sacrilegious, but I expected it to have some of that. You will like this movie if you like such movies as Bad Santa and the Hangover. If youre easily offended, then steer clear!!

Tower Heist
Tower Heist(2011)

A very good comedy movie to watch. May not have had the best acting in the world, but what do you really expect?
I expected it to make me laugh and it accomplished just that.

Spy Kids: All the Time in the World in 4D

Who would pay good money to see this money?
Its just as retarded as the previous "Spy Kid" movies!


Colombiana has some qualities of a good action movie, but still fails to please. Not only was the plot too obvious, but it lacked the intensity to keep one on the edge of their seat.

Apollo 18
Apollo 18(2011)

This movie had a totally boring plot that caused me to fall asleep! Since I love Sci-Fi films, I saw it anyway despite the horrible reviews by the critics, but was nonetheless very disappointed. Would totally not recommend to anyone!

Shark Night 3D

This movie is totally retarded because it reminds me of the movie "Deep Blue Sea," which was actually more action-packed than this movie! This movie is a total waste of money to go see!!

Don't Be Afraid Of The Dark

This film was very entertaining for a horror film, but not really that scary. I have seen better horror films than this one, but it wasn't too bad overall.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes

I was so entertained by this movie and greatly enjoyed it. Though I figured it was probably going to be just as corny as the previous "Ape" movies, it was much better and kept my attention the whole time. The CGA special effects, stellar performance by James Franco, and the interesting plot added to the movie as well.

Captain America: The First Avenger

I loved watching this movie because it was action-packed and was something different to watch. Since there are so many new movies based upon older movies, I thought that Captain America was very original and had a very good plot. The plot was very intriguing because it began by 1) Introducing the Captain American character, 2) Telling the story of his life/actions, and 3)Gave a shocking ending to the movie that promises an exciting sequel. I would totally recommend this movie to children as well because it definitely contains much more action than other movies within its genre.

Green Lantern

Pretty decent action movie in spite of most people giving this movie poor ratings. The movie was very entertaining and action-packed, keeping my interest for the whole movie.
Though the acting was fairly lame, it was still worth paying money to see because it kept me entertained the whole time I watched it in the theatre.

Stargate SG-1: Children of the Gods - Final Cut

Like some of the other reviewers said, I thought this was one of the best pilot episodes I have seen in a tv show.
Though it was longer than the original tv cut as the result of additional scenes, it was entertaining nevertheless.
If you have never watched Stargate before, I would totally recommend this first episode to you!

Stargate: Continuum

Great movie which is part of a series of Stargate movies that started after the original tv series ended. Would definitely only recommend for Stargate fans since its plot or story is based on the previous tv series. In regard to it as an action movie, it contains some pretty good special effects and figting scenes.

Stargate SG-1

Stargate Sg-1 is one of the best original sci-fi tv shows ever made. While many sci-fi television series seem to always draw from the same material, Stargate gives a fresh perspective from its seemingly more realistic plot and setting. Would totally recommend this awesome tv show!!

Cop Out
Cop Out(2010)

Pretty funny film in spite of the horrible acting. The jokes were pretty crude and the acting was almost too ridiculous, but I loved the movie the most because it was mindless humor.
I think its good sometimes to sit back and laugh in spite of a movie's lack of good acting.


I think this movie is an absolute mockery of superheroes in general! Very poorly written movie and is perfect for morons and retards to watch!

The Expendables

I thought the Expendables was a good action movie though it could have contained a little bit more action. When I watched the movie, it didn't disappoint me with the entourage of veteran actors and non-stop action, but it could have been better. For instance, Schwarzenneger and Willis could have had a much large acting role rather than just having one short line for the whole movie.

Public Enemies

I liked this movie because it had great action and was based upon a true story, making it more realistic. Bale and Depp really did well in their character roles as Purvis and Dillinger. Though this movie was not totally accurate historically, it was still worth watching because it contained some much action to keep one's interest.

Grown Ups
Grown Ups(2010)

Nobody on here must have a sense of humor. I couldn't help but laugh the whole time I watched the movie. Most of the reviewers on this site must not have a real life because they expect life to be too serious. I know the humor was basic "toilet" talk, but I think thats all you need sometimes to make a funny film work. This movie was far from having perfect acting, but what else can you expect from a comedy?


This was a great movie which kept my interest for most of the film. I thought this movie contained plenty of action and suspense, making it worthwhile to watch. My only complaint is that the movie is a tad bit long since it goes over two hours. Overall, it was a great movie to watch!

Shutter Island

I really enjoyed watching this movie because of its intriguing plot which kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. Leo did such an excellent job as the main character that he deserves an award for the role.
There were sudden scenes in the movie which made me jump out of my seat at times and I was totally blown away by the shocker ending. Would totally recommend this awesome movie to anyone!


Though this movie didn't have award-winning acting, I thought the constant figting scenes throughout the film made up for it. Tatum did an excellent job as the main character, making me pull for him as the fighter through the whole movie. Would totally recommend this movie to anyone looking for a decent action film!

The Fighter
The Fighter(2010)

Excellent movie that was very well written. Bale and Wahlberg did such a great job in their character roles that they both deserve awards. I thought the movie was very believable in its storyline and contained some great boxing scenes, which made it an awesome film.
Would highly recommend!!


I am a huge fan of sci-fi films, but this movie was totally horrible! The plot had no creativity or continuity to it and I found myself falling asleep several times while I was watching it. Would definitely not recommend this movie because it doesn't live up to the standards of a good sci-fi film!

The Hangover Part II

I highly enjoyed watching this movie and couldn't stop laughing. Some of the critics say that this movie can't compare to the first installment, but I totally disagree.
Though the first Hangover was good too, this one was a lot funnier!! Would definitely recommend!!


This was a movie I wish I had not watched because it was so boring. It was produced on such a low budget I reckon that even the special effects looked cheesy. I give a total thumbs down for this movie!

Brooklyn's Finest

Another typical boring cop movie with a simplistic drawn-out plot. I expected more out of this movie, but I guess Hollywood is starting to run out of ideas for movie plots.

Righteous Kill

Typical cop movie with a plot so simple that literally anyone can figure it out from the first five minutes of the film. Deniro and Pacino are pretty decent actors, but it seems they really short-changed themselves in this film.

Star Trek
Star Trek(2009)

Though one of the main reasons I loved this movie was because am a big fan of anything Star Trek, I thought it was a good action movie as well. This movie was totally action-packed from beginning to end and kept my interest the whole time. I though the CGA special effects added to the movie rather than taking away from it. Would definitely recommend to any fellow trekkie, but overall to anyone who likes a good sci-fi action movie!

The Departed
The Departed(2006)

Though this movie contained a stellar cast which performed their character roles quite well, I thought it contained way too much language and violence which minimized the plot. Near the end of the movie there was less action and more dialogue, which made me want to fall asleep. It's not the worst movie I have seen but definitely will not make my favorites list.

The Book of Eli

Though many reviewers of this movie argue that there is too much of a "religious" theme in its plot, I think that anyone can look past that and just enjoy the movie for what it is.
Though it is not the best apocalyptic movie I have seen, the development of a conflict between Denzel Washington's character and Gary Oldman's character totally makes the movie worth watching. I think the reviewers on this site are way too harsh on this movie.

I Am Legend
I Am Legend(2007)

I would say if you are either a big fan of zombie or apocalyptic films, then you will like this movie. This movie reminds me a lot of Zombieland and Resident Evil, yet is quite different from those two. Will Smith for the most part is the only character in the movie, but he does a great job in his character role as one the last surviving humans on earth. There are some boring sequences at times, but overall a good movie.


I decided not to give this movie 100% because I am not a big fan of animation in movies. I did like this movie though because the plot was pretty interesting and it did have some pretty good action sequences. The movie was exciting enough to keep me interested for over two hours and I didn't regret paying over ten dollars as the result of it being in 3d.

Due Date
Due Date(2010)

Though this movie definitely was funny as the result of crude humor and not something that would win academy awards, it was a decent movie as a comedy. The acting of Robert Downey Jr. and especially Zach Galifianakis both made the movie a hilarious hit. In my opinion, any movie which Zach Galifianakis is in is almost guaranteed to be funny, especially in both of the Hangover movies. Would totally recommend to anyone who appreciates crude comedy!!

The Great Raid

I think anyone who doesn't like this movie is mistaken. Yes, it doesn't compare to the Saving Private Ryan movie, but I thought it did an excellent job in portraying the horrors of POWs captured by the Japanese in World War II. This movie was very heroic and I thought its plot was excellent. With the exception of the Private Ryan movie, Pacific and Band of Brothers series, I think this is one of the best war movies I have seen.


Pretty good action movie which left me shocked at its surprising ending! "The Rock" may not be the best actor in the world, but his character bent on avenging his brother's death was pretty entertaining. There were some nice shooting and fighting scenes, but the dialogue was pretty basic. If you are looking for a fairly good action movie to burn up some time, then this movie would fit the bill.


Movie made absolutely no sense, had horrible acting, and was totally boring. I turned the movie off after the first five minutes because I was falling asleep. Would totally not recommend!!


Contrary to what most of the reviewers think about this movie, I thought this movie was pretty decent. Though I realize that this movie was low-budget minus any special effects and had acting that was definitely not award-winning, I thought it had a decent plot. The elevator scene was boring at times, but it kept me wondering which character was actually the "devil." Overall, this movie was not award-winning, but was entertaining enough to be a pretty good movie.

Second in Command

Great action movie which was very realistic in its portrayal of war. Kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time with the intense fighting scenes. Van Damme is not the best actor in the world, but this movie was worth watching because of its realism and grittyness.

The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus

While this movie contained an entourage of great actors from Johnny Depp to Heath Ledger, I was confused for most of the movie as to what the plot really was about. In my opinion, I thought the movie was boring because it was way too long (3+ hours), the story was very absurd, and the "glittery" special effects which had to be the the hallucinations of someone on drugs was stupid. I can think of better movies to waste my time on such as the Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter which are MUCH, MUCH BETTER than this piece of confusion!

The A-Team
The A-Team(2010)

Though this movie was hilariously entertaining, it fell totally short of being a decent and serious film to watch.
I would say unless you are a big fan of the original television series, this movie is a huge waste of time.
But I also would have to say the anyone who loves this film is a complete moron and retard who has no proper movie tastes at all.
If you want to pick out a dumb film to entertain a group of children for an hour or two, then this movie would definitely fit that criteria.

127 Hours
127 Hours(2010)

127 Hours is a great movie though it is a little different from the normal action movie. I guess you could classify this movie as an inspirational movie because of the story of survival it portrays from the viewpoint of the main (and pretty much only) character in the movie. I would say the gritty scene at the end with the main character cutting his arm off is a little graphic, but other than that, it is a good movie I would recommend to anyone.

Delta Farce
Delta Farce(2007)

I personally think the reviewers on this site are way too hard on this movie. Come on people! What do you expect!
For goodness sakes, Larry the Cable guy is a comedian, NOT AN ACTOR!! If you want to see a serious movie, go elswhere.
Of course this movie doesn't compare to the Hangover, but I reckon if you like crude and senseless comedy then you will like this movie!

The Cutter
The Cutter(2005)

This movie is 100% certified Round-House Kicked Butt!
Great film if you like Norris style karate stunts but if not, look elsewhere!


I was truly disappointed with this movie.
I thought that Steven Seagal sank to a lower level of acting by taking a minor character role, which he never does.
Danny Trejo fit well within his character, but it definitely didn't impress me at all. I thought that the numerous nude scenes in this movie made it more pornographic than action, which in a sense prevented me from walking out of the theatre after a few minutes. If you have a bad day at work or have nothing to do, I would say then that would be the only good time to watch this movie!

Man on Fire
Man on Fire(2004)

Great action movie that contain plenty of awesome violence and emotion! Though not the best action movie I have seen, it kept my interest with its action scenes and dialogue.
Denzel Washington did a great job as the main character who was on a revengeful hunt for those who kidnapped the child he swore to protect.

Source Code
Source Code(2011)

This was a good movie, but it didn't keep my interest enough.
I thought that the plot dragged on way too long with the main character's mission and that it contained too many dialogues rather than action scenes.
Would not recommend this movie because it desperately needs more action!!

Vantage Point

How could anyone not like this movie?
Though the plot is pretty obvious from the beginning, the fact that it give different "vantage" points (as the title says) of the characters who witnessed the terrorist act is what make the movie so awesome! The fact that this movie is a little different from other action movies doesn't make it all that bad. Though it is a little unrealistic at times, I would recommend it overall to anyone.

Man of the Year

Though most of the critics and reviewers of this movie paint it as stupid and imaginary, I thought it parodied or mocked how ridiculous and corrupt our US government really is.
It didn't make me laugh the whole time, but there were some moments in the movie which were funny. Of course this movie does a horrible job in being uncertain what genre it truly is, but it gives a message that demonstrates much needed reform in our government.


I thought this was a good action movie and the best Predator movie made so far. The movie kept me on the edge of my seat due to the creepy background music, making me wonder when the "Predator" creature was going to jump out and kill a member of the assasin team. I thought all the actors from Adrian Brody to Laurence Fishburne were perfect matches for the roles of the movie, adding to the intrigue of the plot.

True Grit
True Grit(2010)

True Grit was a great western which stayed true to the original version by John Wayne. It was like I was watching the original version with a more realistic outlook.
I thought Jeff Bridges did a great job getting into playing the main role as Rooster Cogburn, and I thought Matt Damon did well considering his acting inexperience in the movie genre of westerns. Would recommend to anyone who loves a good action movie, but especially to those who are fans of westerns.

Sherlock Holmes

Excellent and intriguing movie to watch!
Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law as Sherlock Holmes and Watson were perfect roles for them. Though I had my doubts as to whether this movie would keep my interest, its plot was full of surprise and action. Pretty decent action movie to watch and would recommend this movie to anyone.

The Dark Knight

The Dark Knight in my opinion is one of the best action movies ever made and definitely the best Batman movie made so far. Heath Ledger's role as the joker was nothing short of remarkable acting and Christian Bale's role as Batman/Bruce Wayne was excellent as well. I would not take anyone seriously who would not give this movie a solid five-star or 100% rating. Great action movie!
Highly Recommend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Edge of Darkness

This is one of the worst action movies I have ever watched!
I expected this movie to be a lot more action-packed than it was. I suppose one of the reasons the action and production was so bad is because the BBC produced it. The plot seemed to drag on to the point of making me exhausted, and I caught myself falling asleep several times throughout the movie.
My dad seemed to enjoy it, but he doesn't frequent movies as much as I do. I would say this movie is not worth watching because of its dragging and boring plot.

The Hangover
The Hangover(2009)

This is absolutely one of the funniest movies I have ever seen! The crude and undignified humor in this movie is what makes it so great and humorous to watch. There are so many comedies that I have watched which seemed to struggle to keep me laughing, while I was practically "rolling on the floor" the entire time I watched the Hangover. I would totally recommend this sacrilegious movie to anyone who wants a good laugh, but not to those who are too "proper" to appreciate dirty and uncouth comedy!

Tron Legacy
Tron Legacy(2010)

Like many of the reviewers and critics of this movie say, Tron Legacy contained way too much CGA special effects. Instead of adding to the plot of the movie, the special effects and 3d setting actually took away from the movie.
I thought Jeff Bridges did a pretty mediocre job of acting along with other actors. I can think of better action or sci-fi movies one can spend their money and time on than this one.

The Mechanic
The Mechanic(2011)

I thought that this movie had a good plot because of its "killer" ending and its interesting characters. Jason Statham did a fairly good job in playing the main character, though I thought he did better in the Transporter movie series. In comparison to the original version of the movie with Charles Bronson, I can't really say because I have never seen it. Overall, the Mechanic was a decent action movie to watch.

Fast Five
Fast Five(2011)

Fast Five was a very entertaining movie with an action-packed plot. Though my expectations for this movie were low, I was surprised by how much it kept my interest the whole time. Though many action movies have "gaps" in the plot where it gets boring, this movie proved to be just the opposite. I would recommend this movie to anyone who loves a good action movie!
