As close to Am Dram that you will see on celluloid. The editing is the only apocalyptic thing about the movie, loads of stock video and imagery badly taped together. Yes, there are some digs at politics in general, but we know them all already. A very strange outing this one.
"Thrilling Western" ? Missed that bit. It is almost like Vincent stepped off the set of Magnificent Seven, borrowed some costumes and props and piled straight into this pile of stereotypical poo. Pretty dull fare.
Undoubtedly a man without reproach, but the picture is all over the place ? Read the book and Jolie takes more than a few poetic liberties. I thought Miyavi was awful, how do you translate HAM into Shinto ? Biggest bug bear : you are adrift of life rafts, with scurvy, sun burn and various legions...how do two of them manage to cultivate goatee beards ??
Truly awful. Absolutely no original content whatsoever. The acting, or lack of it, was truly breathtaking, particularly Jill Marie Jones. Please let me be the fall guy on this one and do not waste your time.
Thank Christ they went back to the drawing board after 2 ! It is definitely in two halves, the second being the poorest. The first fight with triads is laugh out loud brilliance and is reminiscent of the fight n the house in the first movie, only 10 times better. The second half is disappointing as the prolonged fights make little or no sense. They are over choreographed to the point where both Keanu and the baddies are over compensating and missing the cues which looks rather odd.
Loved the homage to the Matrix "Guns, lots of guns". Some serious mis casting: Halle Berry ( never in a million years ), the English actor Jerome Flynn ( WTF is he doing in this ?) and Anjelica Houston ( Christ is she bad ). The two dogs ........ outstanding piece of training. Definitely worth a watch, but I am of the opinion that if they go for 4, we will be right back to 2.
