Easily the best movie made with a 400,000 budget; it never lets the lack of a budget stop the film from being entertaining or fun, and it looks like a million dollar budgeted picture. Thomerson and Hunt were great together and they added to the movie to give it an unexpected heart and a soul.. in terms of B movies without much of a budget or hopes this movie destroyed all of those things and became a classic.
Hands down one of the worst movies of the 00's and easily one of the worst DTV films let out by Dimension/Miramax in their run. This was made like the later COTC and Hellraiser sequels to keep the license, but unlike those films this one was so bad they let it go afterwards lol. This entire film is a mess from start to finish: lead actors were backwardsly cast, the script was awffully bad, director didn't do much of anything to make the movie better, and the whole thing manages to do a ton of things wrong and no one seemed to care. It's such a shame it all had to go this way, Part 3 recovered the errors 2 had due to Miramax and Weinstein's meddling but this was an awful way to end. Shamefull.
One of my all time favorite films.. the term "ahead of it's time," is overused but it's truly the case here with this movie. It was way too unique for 1997 to handle. You can blame Miramax as they hyped it as the next Pulp Fiction when it was anything but, thankfully it is it's own wonderful beast.
This movie had the courage to allow one of the best action heroes ever to change and be out of his zone and it plays beautifully as Stallone is at his best here. Many would expect Deniro or Keitel to be the bright spots but it's Sly and Liotta owning the movie. They are the most interesting and compelling characters of the whole thing. What makes this work is that no one really steals from each other: Stallone shines as much as Keitel or even Garaffalo did. My fav of the villains was Robert Patrick who was at his best here.
The whole thing's a soilid character study on how to do the right thing in the midst of corruption and every bit of life turning on you. Stallone's guy has all kinds of hell thrown in his face yet he mans up and becomes a true badass thru the movie.. a great arc. Also great here is is his lost love story as well as seeing how the baddies work.. a lot wasn't fully examined sadly but it works so well.
The Climax is one of the best in all of film.. such a heartbreaking yet empowering ending. I'm not gonna spoil it but it's damn amazing.. never seen many like it.
Such a shame this one's not fully appreciated it deserved better.
This is one of my favorite horror films. It's 100% un-apologetic: it's wicked as hell with a dark sense of humor, lacks morals, and is quite zany yet it never takes itself too over serious and that helps in quite a few ways make it from being a lame retread. If you love an edgy mainstream horror film that isn't 100% serious this is a perfect pick.
Acting wise you get Edward Furlong at the height of his teen angst period and he's not too bad, you get Anthony Edwards who's quite lifeless as his dad he acts like he's ashamed to be there and doesn't really try besides a couple of scenes, you get Jared Rushton near the end of his peak years playing one of the weirdest bullys I've ever seen in a movie they make him such a creep which is a major 180 from his earlier roles, but thankfully you get Clancy Brown who busted his butt to make the movie fun and he really ups things quite a bit. Without him I see the movie being just unwatchable.
This one gets hated on too much imo. In terms of dumb and fun horror this up near the top.
"Lacks Intensity," says RT. How wrong is that? Well very, in terms of mainstream high school FB films this is one of the better ones by far. It's nowhere as pretentious as Remember the Titans or cheesy, it's a realsitic and fun yet brutal at times look into high school football and how it's both fun and rough to deal with, more on the former.
This movie is a 90's flick to it's core but it's unashamed of it. It manages to never let up and make the most of what it had. Vanderbeek manages to work extremly well and has that QB poise to him. All of the players do. Larter steals the show as the babe of the movie.. damn it's a shame she never had more big sexpot roles.
Voight's the key that makes the movie work. He's such a dick that no matter what he does it's rievting and when he finally goes down at the end it's gold. One of his better roles. He works well with the then kids and doesn't steal.
In terms of Football films it's def in the top 5 with '74 Longest Yard and the Replacements..
RIP Billy Bob!
