Not even 3 years since King Arthur: Legend of the Sword which was excellent.+1 Been a while since Guy Ritchie made something worth watching.
It was a bit silly, as expected, but the CGI was excellent. Loved how they visualised the nanites.Bloodshot (2020) 6/10
Was in the mood for something loud and silly - this delivered in spades.
The New Aladdin was decent in parts (although I still fail to see the point in some of these live action remakes). I guess I meant more like a signature film "Modern Crime". I guess I see a Guy Ritchie film has having it's own style, not following the Disney template (yes I know he needs to work too). I had forgotten about King Arthur which was better than it had any right to be...
Yes, was one of the best movies I watched actually in the last decade. To me the whole point of the movie was how idiotic the average US citizen is. The way the judge behaved, the public towards him for just being a lawyer, the downed pilot was an idiot, and that was all correctly portrayed and fairly accurate. The typical US citizen is very happy with freedom and rights for all until they get a little bit afraid or angry or the person asking for those rights is different to them and then suddenly they forget their vaunted morals. That movie did a pretty decent job at portraying that. The movie was predominantly about American's and the vast majority of them where shown as small minded short sighted idiots with the lawyer being a rare case of someone who held to his moral compass even when it was distinctly inconvenient. It also shed the Eastern spy in a very positive light. Hence my surprise at your comment saying it was very pro America. It was astonishingly anti the US establishment and showing how one decent private citizen with a brain could help the ineffectual "system" that much and how prejudiced the average US citizen or even senior judge can be.Did you watch till the soppy end, and what criticism are you referring to?
I got the message. I guess my frame of mind when i watched it was that I was hoping for something more to happen, more than a parable or allegory. I still don't think they needed all of 100 minutes to get it across.I liked it, but I think the message was quite obvious and simplified.
6.5/10 for me...
