I first saw this film, rated 18, when I was 13, which coincidentally is right about the time that my childhood innocence died, and therefore I fucking loved it.
Watched this again last night for the first time in a few years. It's just simply amazing. The story, cast, special effects all 10/10 scores. This imo is the best acting performance Russell Crowe has ever pulled off, I don't think he will ever top the greatness of Maximum Meridius. 10/10.
Easily a 10/10, brilliant from start to finish!
Voilà! In view, a valorous visitation which stands vivified against virulent vermin, visually vivid and very very fuckin good!!
This film is on Channel 4 at least twice a year - I watch it every time. Everytime I watch it it is as good as the first time. Clearly this is an all time classic.
Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant..I dont think I've ever met anyone who didn't like this movie..I wouldn't want to be there friend anyway!!
Hostage / Kidnap drama about 2 young American girls taken while touring Europe. So far so standard I imagine your thinking, well the twist in this is the father of one of the girls (Liam Neeson) is on the phone at the time of the kidnap and just so happens that in his former life he was Solid Snake, yeah the doublehard bastard, uber ninja-commando-warrior turned father. He brings the pain needless to say.
"I'm not the type of cunt that goes looking for fuckin' bother, like, but at the end of the day I'm the cunt with a pool cue and he can get the fat end in his puss any time he fucking wanted like. So I squares up, casual like. What does the hard cunt do? Or the so-called hard cunt? Shites it. Puts down his drink, turns, and gets the fuck out of there. And after that, well, the game was mine."
James Cameron is a fucking genius. This film is incredible. I need to see it again before deciding just how good it is, really. It's on forever, but it just flies by. You will not regret losing nearly 3 hours of your life for this. It is an extraordinary tale told with some remarkable effects.
Ok lets just get something straight, I'm no Trekkie (not even the Wrath of Khan, no), absol-fuckin-utely not, I'm a Star Wars fan, I may even accept the term Star Wars geek (we are talking original triology here not that new shite) but and it pains me to say this, this is a quality movie, I wanted it to be all the things the others where, namely camp, shit and hammy but it wasnt, it rocked and it rocked hard, loved every single cgi-filled second!!
