Kimberly B (fr) wrote: My husband didn't like this at first for the reasons he objects to Holocaust films: the bad guys here (the Serbs in this case) are depicted as one-dimensional evil-doers and the story, therefore, is completely lopsided & characters are just caricatures. (just as Germans are depicted in films about the Holocaust). I felt that the character of Daniel was, actually, more complex and conflicted, but my husband disagreed.In any case, the movie is unbelievably grim and violent. I would say it's the harshest and most truthful, in its sense, depiction of war and war atrocities, that I've ever seen. It is unsentimental and unflinching in its depiction of the violence -- it does not dwell or over-dramatize the crimes, and you do not see lingering shots of its effects. Just matter-of-fact brutality and death. This makes it more powerful, I believe.You don't learn much about the conflict overall, and the rather contrived presence and dialogue ascribed to Daniel's father feels undeveloped and sort of out-of-place or an afterthought. It's the only context or background we get, though. Still, a movie isn't supposed to be a documentary, just a movie, so how much can we or should we expect? the situation was more complex than a film could really do justice to, anyway.All in all, I think this movie was better than it got credit for being & I wonder if the lack of attention given to it results from the fact that Angelina Jolie directed it (too famous; too beautiful to be taken seriously) or if no one really cares about the conflict in Bosnia (it doesn't have the tragic cache of the Holocaust, for example), or if it's just that it's so very, very grim with no real light to alleviate all the grimness. I suspect it's a combination of all three. Still, this is well worth watching but be prepared: it's depressing.

Cade H (us) wrote: Hatchet is a slasher franchise that is right up there with the likes of Jason Vorhees and Freddy Krueger. He is a huge, ugly beast of a man and is pretty much unstoppable. The first film in the franchise was a great surprise to me and this sequel, which starts right at the moment the original left off, doesn't disappoint either. The acting is laughably bad and the kill scenes look very fake at times, but who cares when the movie itself is so enjoyable. It is full of unique, bloody deaths along with a dialogue and storyline that is funny and rarely boring. The entire movie is kept pretty light and never gets to creepy or scary. The ending made it seem like there is no way the killer will come back to life, but with a Hatchet 3 out there, you know these monsters can never truly be killed. Check this one out if your want a gory, fun and light hearted slasher flick.

Omar L (au) wrote: What promises to be a crazy screwball farcical shoot-em-up with an ensemble cast delivers precisely that...until the last half-hour brings a change in tone that becomes so serious, the movie stops being fun to watch. The reveal isn't surprising if you're paying attention, so the emotional weight behind it lacks impact, especially given the dark comic tone of the rest of the movie.Everybody does a great job with the roles they're given, which makes it all the more frustrating when it all falls apart at the end. Everybody becomes serious and loses their charm and charisma, and as a result, everyone becomes less important to care about, either in terms of story or character.

Ben L (gb) wrote: I wonder why this is rarely talked about as one of the best Die Hard variants. Because, without question, Executive Decision is essentially Die Hard on a plane. I love this movie for a lot of reasons (as long as you look past the pre-9/11 racial profiling.) First of all, I think the cast is very good. Kurt Russell is excellent as an intelligence agent who is out of his element in a real crisis. Steven Seagal is the perfect action guy who butts heads with Russell. Oliver Platt is exactly what you'd expect out of a nerdy tech-guy. And, best of all, Halle Berry isn't given many lines so she can't screw up the whole film. The story is tense and does a superb job of raising the stakes at just the right moments to keep you on the edge of your seat. While it may not be respected as one of the better 90s action movies, it is easily one of my favorites, and I was happy to see that it still holds up well. Perhaps the biggest problem with Executive Decision is its stupid title. That is a phrase which is used once and only once in the entire movie and it doesn't have a lot of bearing on what happens in the movie. A better title could have helped communicate what the movie is really about. There is one other aspect of the film that I really love, but I can't talk about that without spoiling something that happens kind of early on, and it is definitely a surprise.Spoilers: I think the best decision the writers made in this film was surprising everyone by killing off Steven Seagal early. You have to remember this was a time when Seagal was still a popular action star, so to eliminate him from the movie was a shocker, but it helps the story tremendously. Because his character is eliminated this movie doesn't become a mindless film where the military guys kick all the terrorists in the face one at a time and never have any problem. Instead the team on board the plane are forced to use their heads and out-think the enemy, which is much more interesting and enjoyable. In fact this movie includes so much planning, problem-solving, and strategizing that it almost doesn't fall in the action movie category. But I love that because it is more tense and exciting for the heroes to have those kind of obstacles to overcome.

Justin A (gb) wrote: This movie is so boring. It moves along very slowly until the final ten minutes when it finally becomes interesting and the movie ends in the middle of the action (in a very similar way to Dolly Dearest actually, and I hated that ending a lot too). I have nothing good to say about this movie. There was some fun stuff at the end, but it wasn't worth sitting through the other 80 minutes. If you're a fan of the books, I hear this is the closest to them. However, I never read the books so I just thought this movie sucked.

Carlos M (jp) wrote: This low-budget horror film produced by Roger Corman and directed by Coppola before he went on the become a famous filmmaker has evident shades of Psycho but is not even frightening, with a lame, uneven plot in which nothing much really happens.

Mike C (fr) wrote: Really wanted to like this. I like Justin Long a bit and love Emmy Rossum. It's a stylized romance so if you like it, you'll really like it, but there's that chance you just won't get it. I'm not entirely sure I did. Much of it was beautifully shot, but also annoyingly so...with complete violations of the rules of third, etc. You'd get a character in one quarter of the screen looking off screen. You don't realize how powerful that rule of photography is until someone so blatantly breaks it. In the end, I did enjoy it but it was a bit convoluted thus my slightly lower than average rating.
