Very inspirational/thought-provoking film and I look forward to seeing the reception that this film receives when it comes out in theaters! Really great that we can watch it now on VOD - Truly recommending this film to anyone who loves the state of Washington, running track or trying to find some helpful and healthful inspiration somewhere.

(fr) wrote: Wow this movie was simply terrible. All it is, is some grotesque twisted acts done by some idiot hillbillies, and a cop that gets mixed in with it. The story was lame and quite boring, i had to just skip through most of it. The dialog was just unbearable. I think i loss some brain cells just listening to these characters. The acting... what acting? from what i saw there was none, and if there was it was pathetic. Though you can't really blame them with this kind of trash for a movie. There was just no entertainment value whatsoever. The movie will only appeal to those with some sick gore fetish. Come on who in their right mind would want to see brain-humping? As for it being called a horror movie, its not. Its a snuff film, there isn't one moment that's thrilling nor scary for it to be deemed a horror movie. I really wish i hadn't stumbled upon this film. I read about two-three comments about it and they were positive. Totally baffles me how anyone, besides a pervert, would enjoy this movie. Even the focus on gore and sickness of the characters as the defile another human being was lame. Oh wow he killed another person and is having sex with a hole in their head... yawn. Overall rating: Bad movie You are better off not watching this film.

Minor alterations to setting and plot allow the directors to say that they're different films, but this is yet another excuse for scenes of comedy dismemberment, decapitation and disembowling. If you've seen Undead or Shawn of the Dead, then just watch it again and pretend the cast are Irish. Shite.

This is a good depiction of Burton and Speke, and their 19th century story about locating the source of The Nile river in Africa. The unfortunate fate of their relationship is portrayed excellently, in this well-acted and written film, with terrific cinematography. I highly recommend it as a history lesson and great cinema.

(it) wrote: Once again, a white person has been given a platform to demonize black people. In the movie, Kevin Costner's teenage daughter has consensual sex and a child with a drug addicted black man. This movie goes out of its way to try and prove that Costner, a drunk, is better suited to raise the child than her biological father's black family. Costner's character can't even handle the simple task of combing the child's hair. By portraying the child's father as a pathetic drug addict, the movie unsuccessfully tries to paint her pathetic drunken white grandfather as the preferred guardian. Really? Once again, white is here to save the day. Only in the movies. I imagine the scarcity of acting gigs for black actors in Hollywood as the main reason Octavia Spencer and Anthony Mackie agreed to taking part in this stereotypical racial farce. Shame on you.
(br) wrote: This film may have been intended as a satirical jab at the glut of formulaic action films that were being released in the 80's and 90's, but not only does it fail at that, it fails at being a decent action film. The biggest problem is that the plot is completely ridiculous. For me, the film could have been more satirical if the whole film played out like an action film that didn't always take itself seriously, as opposed to the whole "magic ticket" approach. As soon as the "real world" setting was laid out, this film started to feel like more of a generic family film, and it's not as though Jack Slater's world is any better, because the people in it look and act so out of touch with reality that it's outdated. The film was made in 1993, and yet everyone in Jack Slater's world acts like it's still 1986, and for once, that's not even remotely charming. The acting is alright, and Charles Dance's performance in this film is truly underrated, but the characters constantly act so ridiculous. The problem with a setting that gives characters licence to act like they're in a Hollywood movie is that they always take it too far. To take this film for what it is requires not so much a suspension of disbelief, but a complete silence of disbelief, and for someone like me, that's strictly impossible. To sum it up, it's a bad joke as a blockbuster film, and a near absolute failure as an action film. I'll admit that the film does have plenty of enjoyable moments, but at 131 minutes, this tedious relic of the 90's will most likely cause some of your brain to melt.
