Take it as a warning. This film robs of the senses you should have and replaces them with garbage.
The real conspiracy is, with the editing style and stupid storytelling, people just don’t like watching a bad film. Well, maybe some people. The Columbine killers code named their attack “NBK.”
“This is not the miracle that pushed this great writer, actor and director back into the spotlight. It’s just a below average vehicle for two comic actors near the end of their prime. “
This is a bad movie. Really it’s more sad than anything.
Is this a film of its time? Yes, in that it plays like a bad episode of Magnum P.I. or a good episode of The A-Team.
“The most notable aspect of the film for me is that Michael Ironside actually makes it through the entire film. If he’s not necessarily living, he’s at least able to drive.”
“I saw this film on a dare from someone who saw the first 10 minutes then fast forwarded to the end. Both he and I had seen this film pushed to the top of our Netflix login, saying there was a 90+% chance we’d like this film. Not sure what the criteria is, but it’s not nearly as accurate as those Amazon adbots that put items similar to what you were browsing for on every future page you visit. He wins, even if he saw only 5 minutes less than I did. “
“It wants to be a statement, but it’s not quite a sentence.”
The film doesn’t fail big. It only does so politely.
