(es) wrote: To remind us our errors and limits.It was a surprising film. Because it was based on a real event, but there's nothing much about heroism which is essential for most of this kind of film and its success to inspire the viewers. I liked that. They just wanted to tell the story. Not to create a hero nor a villain. But due to the casting, Mark Wahlberg looks the centre of the story. And also points out a negative character without confirming anything properly. But if the film is depicting the real incident correctly, then it was no man's fault. It should be a technical error that led to the man's push over the limit.It's April 20 2010 about 60 kms away southern coast of the US in the Gulf of Mexico. A new batch arrives to continue drilling in the deep sea as part of oil exploration. When they felt they have got it, but it's only a back foot. Small small errors, following a big blow, the entire crew with the greater effort to stop it ends in vain. Finally, it is a matter of saving their own life than the drilling platform. With lots of action, how one of the biggest man made disaster in the recent time comes to end covered in the remaining part.From the director of 'Lone Survivor' and his part in the project was appreciable. It is another sea disaster theme like the recent 'The Finest Hours'. The film was mainly developed from the articles and also got nominated for the Oscars in two categories, but did not win any. Visual effects were the key for such film and I liked those parts. I appreciate for recreating the event for the world know what really happened. It is a must see, not for entertainment purpose, but it will work for that as well. Recommended!7 1/2/10

(de) wrote: All the significance and meaning of Edward Scissorhands but less enjoyable. What could this controlling psycho father be representing? An Imam, a preacher, an evangelist or a sadomasochist? There is no possible relevance to anything or anyone in society unless we imagine an alien society where people never require a hospital, pay taxes, vote or receive mail. If you are into kink there is some brother sister sex and animal cruelty. If you like boobs there are some nice ones occasionally on two buttafaces. Otherwise, it is nothing.

(kr) wrote: Oddly structured, short on character development and long on montages. "Legally Blonde" was a much more competent variation on this sort of thing, and to be honest I even laugh more at "Troop Beverly Hills".

(es) wrote: Definitely better than the previous installment, this fourth Alien film doesn't add anything new or relevant to the series but neither does it disappoint. It has plenty of action and scares, a mildly interesting plot and a particularly grotesque ending that works just fine.
(us) wrote: Sometimes you go see a movie that you KNOW is not going to win any serious awards, has no redeeming social value and doesn't take itself very seriously - at all. And it's BECAUSE of all those reasons that you go - just because the movie is going to be fun to watch. You get all this with "Machete Kills" (R, 1:47). In 2007, Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez created a movie called "Grindhouse", a film which imitated the experience of going to a drive-in movie (ask your parents) to see two hyper-violent "B-movies". "Grindhouse" contained two full-length films, which looked and felt like a 1970s-era double-feature, complete with wild faux trailers in between the movies. One of those trailers was for a movie called "Machete" with Danny Trejo playing a tough-guy named after his favorite weapon and included the tag line "They f****ed" with the wrong Mexican!" Well, the trailer got such a strong reaction from the audience that Robert Rodriguez actually made the movie! That was in 2010. In 2013, Rodriguez and Trejo teamed up again for a sequel.In "Machete Kills", Trejo is saved from a vigilante sheriff by an almost-too-late phone call from the President of the United States (Charlie Sheen, billed in this film as Carlos Estevez). The President convinces Machete (pronounced ma-CHET-ay) to go back to Mexico and stop a revolutionary named Mendez who is threatening to fire a missile at Washington D.C. Machete is a really tough hombre, but he has a heart, so he takes on the mission. He captures the dangerously schizophrenic Mendez (Demin Bichir), but has to get him out of Mexico, past a wall that separates Mexico and the U.S. and to the only man who can diffuse the missile, whose trigger has been surgically attached to Mendez' heart. To accomplish all this, Machete has to deal with Mendez' wild personality swings, a murderous bevy of prostitutes led by Desdemona (Sophia Vergara) - who is wearing some very dangerous weaponry (yes, wearing) - and attempts on his life by characters played by Walton Goggins, Cuba Gooding Jr., Lady Gaga and Antonio Banderas, who, in this film, all share a very unusual connection. Oh, and then there's Mel Gibson's megalomaniacal Voz, who is planning on escaping the violence of earth by taking a select few up in a space shuttle he built himself.If all this sounds dumb, all I can say is... it is! But it's also a real hoot! Machete is a serious bad-ass battling a whole lot of merciless, but colorful villains. The characters, the action, the violence, and the dialog are all delightfully over-the-top. If you watch this movie, you'll get exactly what you expect - no more and no less. And you'll even get a trailer for the next Machete movie - "Machete Kills Again... in Space!" I'm not even kidding. Until THAT sequel re-redefines "over-the-top", I'll revel in the memory of "Machete Kills" and recommend it with the only grade that I can give a great B-movie: a "B+".
