"A Modern Horror Classic" ـــ There are no better words to describe this!
It's no secret that John Carpenter is the master of atmosphere. And here he's at the top of his game. He symbolizes the actual pulse of the viewer, as well as the characters' pulses in the film, through this simple, yet dramatic heartbeat pulse sound. The murky dystopian atmosphere that every single scene in the movie is drenched in is also quite convincing. This is probably would make many people angry, but I couldn't help but feel that this film might have an influence on Ridley Scott's masterpiece, Blade Runner!
Unfortunately, I was bored to death watching Escape from New York, for many reasons. First and foremost, the film is cheesy and slow-buring a the same time, and I just couldn't digest that. Hence, I found the movie very silly and slow-paced for its own good.
Secondly, all of the characters are extremely flat, including the bad-ass protagonist, Snake Plissken. Kurt Russell is not to blame, though. He's as cool as always. The rest of the cast also did a good job. I digged the characters of Maggie and Brain, though. I liked how untrustworthy and unreliable they are.
Thirdly, the plot is underdeveloped, unoriginal and stretched out. That made me feel that the film never ends despite its short runtime.
I know it's an unpopular opinion, and the fans may get so pissed off. But unlike all the other Caprenter films, I really didn't enjoy this at all.
It starts out as a goofy James Bond rip-off, but when the plot kicks off (and it took the entire first act to do so), I realized that the movie actually has a pretty decent premise that's as cool as the innovative camera work and the incredible over-the-top action set-pieces that haven't aged even a tiny bit.
However, the first act is actually the part of the movie I enjoyed the most. Mostly, because it's where the silly humour works perfectly. But then again the first act really didn't need to be that long, and it's the main reason this movie is overlong in first place.
Although it's where the plot begins to develop, the second act is by far my least favourite part of the movie. It is gratuitously stretched, and hence I found it quite boring.
The third act has some of the coolest and most intense action sequences I've seen in a Cameron film. By that I mean they are really as cool and intense as The Terminator's.
All in all, I liked True Lies, and I think it's one of the most entertaining, and also one of the weakest, movies has James Cameron ever made despite its notable flaws such as the paper-thin plot.
If you don't think this movie is silly enough, try to translate the Arabic lines. I'm sure they will do :)
I didn't expect a film with such a premise to be so touching like that! I came only for laughs. But with just a hint of melancholy, this brilliant film managed to find laughs and pathos in equal measure. I also didn't expect it to be such a feel-good film either. But thanks to Peter Cattaneo's effortlessly nuanced direction, Simon Beaufoy's exquisite script, the charismatic and charming cast, and the killer soundtrack that's most likely to be one of the best I've ever heard in a comedy, The Full Monty is a very breezy watch. Its honest and decent exploration of masculinity is also a something we don't see in films anymore. I just wish if its humor was more witty and intelligent. I also think there are some unconvincing character decisive decisions that made only to serve the plot. Still, this is a crowd-pleasing film that has a touching honesty and heartfelt emotion underneath its once-shocking and daring concept.
