Critics are far too hard on this movie. Its actually more of a 3.5-4 star than a 5, but I want to offset some critic hate. The movie is a little long, but I was entertained the whole time. The two main stars had chemistry - I was invested in their outcome. It had good action, a fun premise - especially if youve ever played D&D or World of Warcraft (orcs, elfs and fairies mixed with a modern society). Thank you Netflix and David Ayer for making something different from every other movie or serial usually released at the box office.
Trailer looks great - I wanted to like it, but it's not very good. Good cast, but poor writing. Very PC... white people and cops bad, minorities and females, good. Feels a little like a Lifetime movie rather than Netflix.
I know the story, I'll wait for On Demand.
Probably closer to 3.5-4 stars, it started out very funny but kind of drifted halfway through. But critics are so hard on this movie (like the first one), that I wanted to help bolster user reviews. When I saw the first Daddy?s Home I laughed way more than I thought I would because of poor reviews. Critics are horrible at recognizing humor, they save their multiple star ratings for super-dry arthouse movies. If you laughed at the first one you?ll laugh at this - the same style humor with the addition of Cena, Gibson and Lithgow. I also like the PG-13 rating... too many writers use f-bombs as a crutch. This group is capable of humor with looks, actions and slapstick. I?ll be adding this to Elf for Christmas viewing.
Judge the comedies you see by viewer ratings, not stuffy, no-humor critics.
