Wow. Weird, trippy, and nonsensical from a narrative standpoint. Mostly bad songs with an episodic "story" structure. Frenetic editing undermines the choreography. Interesting to look at and I appreciate the effort but I understand why it hasn't connected w audiences or critics. Only for hardcore fans.
Delivers the goods but less believable than previous entries. My only gripe is Mike saved the world twice previously so probably shouldn't have been blamed so easily.
If you like nihilistic movies that leave little explained with unsatisfying and inconclusive endings, then here's a film for you. Production design, acting, and music are all solid but this movie lacks a reason to command two hours of your time. I was hoping it was all leading to something fresh and surprising, but was left empty-handed. It's so obvious from the beginning that the robot is not to be trusted. Plus it lacks an examination of what a human being would be like if it were raised in complete isolation (minus a robot mother). What would that person be like? How would they behave? Would they be "human?" Instead we get a protagonist acting like a trusting young woman. Would have been really cool to realize at the end that this was all a Terminator side-story or sequel or prequel.
Couldn't get past the first 30 minutes. Unwatchable dreck. Don't understand the positive reviews. Definitely an acquired taste.
Solidly acted and executed film that had several moments that really moved me. I'm a Matthias Schoenaerts fan and he delivered a brooding heartfelt performance. What I didn't like about the film was the ending - which I won't spoil here but disappointing to say the least. Worth a watch for a certain crowd and will probably reinforce your preconceived notions about governments, military bureaucracy, and the "evils" of the Russians at the top of the power structure.
This is a beautiful, gripping, and heart wrenching film. As a veteran I can say that the film quite accurately captures the love the brothers in arms have for each other and the lengths that they will go to for one another. And who knew Jay Courtney could act? The casting was phenomenal, the music and performances near flawless, and the script was tight and filled with rising palpable tension, especially during the mind-blowing finale. The film portrays the horror of combat and the terrible burden these men bring home with them. These critics literally have no idea what they are talking about. This movie needs to be seen by as many people as possible! Loved it!
It's a Rambo we've never seen before. One criticism is that his antagonists can't really match him so you never think he's going to be unsuccessful. A little too short for my taste ... felt like there was more story left to tell. A bit of slow burn for the first 45 minutes...
Flawed but still quite good as a character study. Definitely 2001 meets Apocalypse Now. Probably not for everyone.
Loved it ... super heartfelt ... great for whole family ...
Unbelievably boring for the first 2 hours and fifteen minutes. Well acted, but overly nostalgic and shockingly unfunny. The ending is certainly satisfying but it's a painful and meandering slog to get there. An undisciplined affair that almost had me walking out of the theater.
A beautifully meditative film with a powerful and understated lead actor in a fascinating role. I appreciate how they presented the character of Roman with all his flaws. The musical score was transcendent and the narrative about the horses themselves and how they affect these prisoners for the best is remarkable. It has a few elements that might not be realistic but are forgivable given the great performances. The prisoner culture seems to be presented well. Highly recommend.
This film has a great premise, (obviously) wonderful music, endearing performances, and a satisfying conclusion. Sure there may be some questions left unanswered and books and crannies unexplored, but all in all yields a satisfying night out at the movies. I went w my ten year old daughter, mother, and wife. Had to cover my daughter's eyes a few times but overall a relatively clean, multi-generational pleaser. Highly recommend!
Effing horrible. Poorly directed, atrocious music, and a terrible waste of a great cast.
