This would have to be a movie that the film distributor would have to pay me to watch. Therefore, I haven't seen it, and I wouldn't go near it without a sizable advance.
This is called "milking the monster". They created this ridiculous monster and dubbed in Mike Myers scottish brogue, got Eddie Murphy to tag along as a smart alec donkey, the princess is a monster too. It's like enough is enough the second time around.
This just goes to prove that Hollywood will kick a dead horse until the very last tax write-off. This movie, was a tax write-off. If you wait an extra week, you'll be able to get it at RedBox.
After Valentine's Day, I vowed never to buy a ticket again if the movie had Ashton Kutcher in it. But it was hot outside, there was nothing to do because I live in the middle of nowhere. So I bought a ticket to see Killers, because the thought of having to sit through Toy Story or some of the other droll trash, drove me crazy.
This was a good movie! Restored my faith in Ashton Kutcher! It was directed well, it had funny lines, it was an intensely crazy movie. Nice job.
Not as good as Killers. and I generally avoid movies with Ashton Kutcher. A lot of rapid-fire sequences with no logic, but who cares. You spend most of your time staring at Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz. Maybe if they took a little more time, maybe a few more months in the editing and re-shooting Department. It was like watching two James Bond movies at the same time, on the same screen. Entertaining, especially if it's 110 outside.
Marveled at the number of creative sequences that keep rolling. It's like, don't look away, you'll miss something. Get your popcorn, go to the restroom, get a good seat, and plan to sit in it the whole time.
Definitely not for children. Adults need to go to confession for even buying a ticket. Strange but wonderful. Weird. Slightly off center of blasphemy.
Although I disapprove of exploitation and violence in movies marketed to families, I have to make an exception. Anybody who walks into this movie, deserves what they get. It's Jackie Chan, who really is a dynamic individual with raw talent, taking it a step further by challenging your intellect.
Although bullying is a part of the movie, bullying is also a fact of life. And wouldn't it be wonderful, if we could all kick the living daylights out the bullys in our lives, without being arrested?
I would sign up for karate lessons tomorrow if I could kick the living daylights out of the bullies in my life, and go around protecting the innocent, for lack of a protective order. In this case, patience is not a virtue. Some people deserve exactly what is coming to them.
I thought it was highly subjective and stimulated the cortex of the human brain beyond it's normal thought process.
