Plot, script, cinematography, stunt work, and the undercurrent of sly cynicism - "Ladies And Gentlemen, I give you the F. - B. - I. " - are all faultless.

Brilliant performances from a stellar cast, not least Hart Bochner's coke-addled middle exec sleazebag who must surely have been modeled on certain Hollywood EPs.

And of course, Ralph Rickman whose Hans Gruber is a shoo-in for anyone's all-time Top Ten Villain list.

A movie I can watch again and again.

Agreed all around.

Why does this movie have such a limited release? It's been out for nearly a month in the U.S., yet is nowhere in my area.

 

I like "Macbeth" the most of all The Bard's stories, but it's not worth driving cross-state for.

Have not a clue.

Revenant...visually compelling and carried the movie in somewhat slow and long shots. Felt like it had some renf influence to it a Valhalla meets brave new world which is by no means a bad thing.

Leo was good and had to rely mostly on body language to captivate the audience.

Hardy was great and he is probably the most talented actor out at the moment...that being said I can't see Leo not getting the nod this year, I can't imagine what else takes it.

Gonna see it next week. Trying to decide what theater to see it in though... Kind of bummed there's no imax version.

I went to the 11:40 showing and it was on a tiny screen in downtown DC...I promptly exited the theater and asked someone why a movie meant to been watched on a big screen on opening day was being shown on that size and if the 12 o'clock was on a bigger screen because I was not paying to see it on the one they planned on showing it on.

Needless to say I saw it on their biggest screen at 12

Sicario wasn't very good. The Emily Blunt character was annoying.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Should've just focused on the Benicio character story line, and kept it a straight up revenge flick.

What does Sean Connery sound like playing a Russian? That's right: Sean Connery.

I always liked the way they did the transition from the Russians speaking Russian to them speaking English.

ever see Enemy at the Gates? the sniper flick with Jude Law playing the russian and Ed Harris playing the german in a game of cat-and-mouse at the battle of Leningrad?

 

iirc all of the russians were played by english actors, and they used english accents. the nazi just used his american accent. weird. but a good movie.

Almost as bad when they have the actors in child 44 speak English with Russian accents...just kidding I could care less either way but I get annoyed when people complain about it. When you take an entire cast of English speakers and interject them into another country id rather they speak English, because after all it is an American produced film.

You go on IMDb forums and all people do is complain about movies not using actors from the countries movies take place in...specifically in Africa. To that I say et over yourself.
