Becky T (ag) wrote: Great family movie, with a great message and great laughs!

Bronson C (kr) wrote: Being a fan of JCVD, Assassination Games hits the mark! Well! It's not your typical Van Damme film, but it gets its point across. No question!

Robertson R (nl) wrote: A twist that is better left out but still continues to be a good movie.

Jacob P (us) wrote: A good horror film with an outstanding story and acting.

Amber K (ag) wrote: I loved Anne of Green Gables (1985) and Anne of Avonlea (1987). it was a surprise that they came out with a third. But after I saw it I thought it was really great too. Megan Follows is a very wonderful actress in my humble opinion...

Diogo V (au) wrote: Great biopic of a man so ahead of his time!Dustin Hoffman is great and the black & white cinematography is perfect.

Orlok W (nl) wrote: A foul-mouthed, mean blaxploitation classic that pulls all the punches--Bloody good fun, ticking all the blaxploitation boxes!!

Bruce B (au) wrote: Another one of those movies on the list from the Ross Elliott List on IMBD Data Base. Even though he only played Corpse of Neal Emery, thel late husband of Rita Hayworth, in this movie, I guess his part lasted all of 12 sceonds if that. But it introduced me to the acting of not only the Beautiful ms Hayworth but it showed me a side of Glenn Ford I never saw before, I just wasn't used to seeing Gleen duke it out with someone. Its a great movie, Rita Hayworth's husband while living in Tridad is found dead, the first report is suicided but we all know that doesn't make a movie, only murder does, So in the movie we track who the killer was, and yes even this many years after WWII we are still trying to connect the German's with the plot of overthrowing the USA, gee what ever happen to than and how much money was wasted, kind of like the Terriost threat of today. anyway its a great movie, Rita shows her talent and beauty. Buy it, rent it, borrow it but most of all see it. 5 Stars

chris s (gb) wrote: Amazing to consider the breadth of what this man built while considering the man in full. Eastwood again demonstrates that he is the consumate story teller and has the juice to tell the story that way he sees it. I understand Rex Reed did not like it because it did not tell the Liberaci'd version of the story but who cares, really, Rex?
