I was a little skeptical about this film. Having seen pretty much all the James Bond films, it was bound to be a let down. But what a disappointment. I enjoyed this film immensely. I think the characters were very well written, and the chemistry between Sean Connery and Barbara Carrera was superb. I was also impressed by the way the screenplay handled the Bond film. From the opening scene to the final credits, I was very satisfied with the story. I think it was a very good film. I think it is an excellent film to start with, and I think it should be a good way to end. It did not disappoint me, and I will definitely be looking for this film in the future.

As a former security guard in New York, I can tell you that the police officers I know have more emotion in their expressions than what the movie portrays. So when I heard that this movie was being made, I was excited. I was disappointed that they never mentioned why we didn't see it on TV or in the movie. When we did see it, I realized that it was not on TV or in the movie, it was in my apartment. I was shocked that it was not on TV. So, after a year of waiting, I finally got the DVD in the mail. Now, the movie is actually very good. The story is told in a great way. The cast is excellent. I enjoyed every minute of it. I will give this a 9 out of 10. The music is excellent. I will give this a 10 out of 10. But it is not enough. I want the movie to be on television so I can see it again. I will keep this on my top list.

It's not a perfect film. Some of the characters are not very well developed, and the film does seem to drag in some places. But it is one of the best films I've seen in the last few years. I am aware that the action is very violent and the characters are not well developed, but this film is about two men and how they deal with life, love, death, and power. I highly recommend this film.

This is an excellent film that will appeal to those who enjoy their crime films to the fullest. It has a great cast, and the acting is superb. There are great action sequences, and great set pieces. The film is just that: great. I was amazed by how much this film is a western, and just how different it is to anything that has come out of Hollywood in the last couple of years. I think the fact that the film is based on a true story is the icing on the cake. It is a great film that is well worth watching.

Well, if you don't mind a few slow parts, you might like this movie. Well, if you're looking for something different, you might be disappointed. There's nothing really new here. It's not a crime movie or anything. But it's certainly a good movie. I watched it in two days. The beginning was good, but the end was just a little bit long. But it was all worth it. I have to admit that I was a little confused about the ending, but I'm sure it's not the fault of the director. It's just that, I didn't really know what it was all about. I'm not really sure how this movie is rated here in the United States. If you have seen it and you didn't like it, you might be surprised. But I'm sure the average American will probably enjoy it. It's a good movie, but not a great movie. I'm not a fan of this type of movies, but I still have to admit that I like it. I give it an 8/10.

A well acted, well written film that would be more enjoyable if it had not been based on a book, but the film itself is engaging. A man's life is spiraling out of control and he is desperate to find a way out of it. It is one of the few films I have seen that deals with the human condition, and the people that inhabit it, the result of it all is a dark, depressing, bleak film that is worth seeing. There are moments of warmth and humor, the film is not without flaws. I understand the film was not intended to be an American western, I was curious why it was called a western, the film is set in the states, and its setting was different than most. Also the casting of the protagonist and antagonist is unusual. He is a professional gambler, and the character is not a straightforward 'bad guy'. The movie is not perfect, but it is worth seeing. I would recommend it to any fan of westerns, I hope that the makers of the film are inspired.

I am a big fan of Frank Whaley. I feel his movies have something special about them. After I saw this one I knew that I would love him in the future. And I did. He plays a cop who is called to the scene of a crime. He comes back with a huge gun to take down the criminals. This movie is very dark and disturbing. It is very violent. This is a movie that is not for the light hearted. I recommend this movie to those who are looking for a dark thriller.

Fatal Attraction is one of those movies you remember years later. This is the sort of movie that gets you thinking and makes you wonder why you never bothered to see it before. It's one of those movies that makes you remember why you didn't like those movies that you liked. I love this movie, and I love this movie so much that I recommend it to anyone that I know. I give this movie an 8 out of 10.

I just got back from seeing this film and it was not what I expected. I am still in shock and was looking for a big explosion, or even a drug scene to go along with it. But that was not the case. I was not expecting this, but I have to say I was pretty impressed with this film. The story is kind of cliche, but it does not seem that way. There were some fine performances from everyone. The main characters were pretty well written. All the actors were able to draw you into their world. There was not a single character that I did not care about. There were some minor issues, but they were minor and there was a lot of room to improve. The only thing I didn't like was the ending, I think it was a little bit predictable. Overall, this was a pretty good movie, if you are a fan of crime dramas, this is a must see. There is not much more I can say, except to say that this is a film that I will not soon forget.

It's a comedy movie, a crime drama, and a murder mystery. It's a great mixture of all three. If you have seen the trailer, you will know what to expect. If you haven't seen it, don't worry, you'll get all three wrapped up in a nice little package. The cast is great. Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Michael Cera play their characters very well. Ben Mendelsohn is perfect for his role as the detective. He is very cool, even when he is angry. There are no bad performances. The story is very unique. It's a good story, and I think it's good for people of all ages to watch. It is also very well-done, especially in the cinematography. I think the movie is great for people who like crime/drama, comedy, or just people who like a good mystery. If you like any of those, you should definitely watch this movie. My rating: 8/10

What I liked about this movie was that it was a "boom-boom" movie that was fun to watch. The movie had a good story, a good plot, great performances, and a great ending. This movie is much more than just a gangster movie. It has a message, a great story, and great acting. It is one of the best gangster movies I have ever seen. The movie was fun, exciting, and very entertaining. The cast of this movie was great, but the best thing about this movie is the ending. I will always love this movie and I would recommend it to anyone. 8/10.

The concept of The Great White Hope was a beautiful one, but the execution is where this movie loses it's grip. It's simply too hard to feel like this movie belongs to the past and instead should belong to the present, as well as the future. It seems that the writer/director was more interested in showing how Black people can lead a better life than what the film should have been about. This was a really good idea but the execution of it just wasn't done right. The movie tries to be too deep and it fails miserably. You don't really care about the characters and their fate. This movie could have been a really great movie if it was handled better, but it just didn't work for me. The Great White Hope should be more about the good time that the Black people can get in, not how the people that are with them have to endure a long life with all the hate and all the hate that comes with it. I wish that I could have liked this movie more, but I couldn't. It's too hard to watch a movie about the lives of Black people and not get more from it. But, it's not all bad, because the movie is actually pretty good. The movie takes the time to show the Black people's perspective and it's not just an excuse to show how bad they were treated in the past. This movie does a good job in showing the Black people's point of view and it's not just the point of view of the Black people. It's also about the perspective of all the other people in the world that have been dealt with by the system of hate that the Black people faced. The movie does a good job at showing the way that Black people should feel and it's not just about the Black people. But the movie is very good and it's the best movie of this year, but it's just not a great movie and it could have been a great movie if it was handled better.

I really enjoyed this film and was really moved by it. I was really surprised to see this film do so well at the box office. The acting is fantastic and the storyline is great. The cinematography is beautiful. The music is great. The story is excellent. I was really happy with the ending. The film is a great story that you should not miss.

Before I started watching this movie I had never heard of it. I was immediately intrigued because I love James Cameron and he is an old friend of mine. He is also known for his action films such as "Terminator 2", "Titanic" and "Avatar". I decided to watch this movie because of his reputation. This movie is extremely entertaining and one of the best movies of the year. The movie starts off slow but once you get into the action the movie really gets going. The movie has an excellent cast and the action sequences are incredible. I will admit the movie does have a few parts that are a little slow, but it is a perfect way to end the year. The movie is entertaining and is a must see.

I'm going to start by saying that I saw this film at the very last minute, and I'm glad I did. I don't really understand why the critics have panned it. I guess they expected a buddy cop type film. Boy, was I wrong. If you go into this film with nothing but a sense of humor and a desire to see some action, you're in for a treat. That is, if you have a sense of humor and you can appreciate a film that's completely over the top. Don't let the fact that you're probably not into any type of action film fool you, because you're not going to like this film. If you've never seen a comedy before, then you're in for a treat. It's silly, funny, and almost completely over the top. It's not a good movie, but it's definitely a good time.

I've seen it once already and it made me think about it. I like it when the film maker takes the audience into a very dark place and give them a clue as to what's going on, what's happening in the real world. When we look at the world, we see it from the perspective of the people that are living in it. I think that's the same in real life, especially when we see it from the perspective of the criminal. It's not that there's something wrong with the criminal, but in real life, we're only seeing a part of the picture. The whole picture is hidden and not all the people in the picture are actually criminals. The film maker, puts a picture together with clues to point us in the right direction. We should not be looking at the world through the eyes of the criminal, but at the world that we are living in, and not the one that we are living in.

I've never been a fan of David Mamet. Most of his films are really cheesy and somewhat uninteresting, but this one, "Sideways" (2011), was so well made that I actually found it enjoyable. The plot is basically about the friends and the younger of the two, William,(Taylor Lautner), is becoming involved in a drug deal. At the same time, his best friend, John,(Barry Pepper) is also involved with a drug deal, but he's had a nervous breakdown, so he doesn't want to be involved with William's drug deal. William, who's now a major drug dealer, takes John to see John's wife, who has a baby. John doesn't want to go, but he's told he has to. This creates a new problem for William as he now has to sell his drug. He finds himself in a huge scheme of buying drugs from people that have been involved in violence and all sorts of illegal activity. He becomes involved in the dealings of both John and John's wife, but he also has to deal with his father. I'm glad I found this movie enjoyable. I thought it was an interesting film, and I enjoyed the storyline, the characters, and the actors. Taylor Lautner, who I usually dislike, did a great job playing William. I thought Barry Pepper was a good actor as well, but he was great in "Sideways" as well. My favorite character in this film was the father, who was played by Eddie Izzard. I really thought he was a good father. I don't think he was that good in "Sideways" because he was kind of weak, but I liked him in "Sideways". I like the fact that he made his son, which was played by Danny Glover, come to him and give him advice. I thought the movie was well written and well directed, and I liked the way they were using flashbacks in the film. The main plot of the film is the drug deal that William and his father, who was the main actor, had to go through, and I thought that it was very well done. The director was good at making it look as good as it was. I liked the movie. I thought it was good, but it didn't have anything like the rest of David Mamet's movies, so I won't recommend it. If you are looking for a good movie with a good storyline and acting, and you like the type of film that he makes, then "Sideways" is definitely worth checking out.

Just another good movie. The story is good, not too complicated but not to complicated either. The acting was good, the movie had some memorable scenes, and the suspenseful, exciting and even dark moments were really intense. I also like the music that was used. It was very appropriate to the scene and it was never out of place. The main character was also good. I liked the way he did things, he didn't always know what to do. I don't know if the director wanted to show us that the main character is a drug dealer but he is not that way and that's why he is a good guy. The fact that he is not the hero does not mean he is bad, he is just doing what he wants to do, which is good. I don't think I would recommend this movie to everyone, I think the action is the main part of the movie and that's what I liked most about it. I hope you will like it as much as I did. I really hope you'll like this movie. Rating: 8/10

The movies of Charles Bronson are so fascinating, but it takes a little time for the audience to learn the meaning of this "true crime" about the strange and unexpected consequences of a murder committed by an ex-fiancee, a brother and his partner. The story begins with the disappearance of Charlie, the eldest son of John Russell Bronson, the writer of the novel, and his wife in 1956, but the story is not the least about the subsequent search of the latter's past and about the difficult relation of the protagonists. John Russell Bronson's screenplay is quite interesting and the performance of John Travolta, a really unusual one, is very convincing. The movie is not a masterpiece, but it is certainly entertaining.

This movie was a very impressive and interesting film that I thoroughly enjoyed watching. It was interesting to see how different people reacted to the same situation and how they would deal with it. It's amazing how much different people were able to come to terms with the situation. There were very interesting things that happened throughout the movie. It was great to see a movie that had everything going for it. The characters were very well developed and their personalities were very interesting. I was really impressed with this movie. It was definitely a very entertaining film. I would definitely recommend watching this movie.

This movie is definitely not the best of its genre.but I think it's still a very good watch for a simple minded guy like me.
