As much as I want to like The Rock and his super dedication to hard work and focus and yada, yada, yada.. I still struggle to get into most of his movies. There are some slightly funny jokes in this one, but mostly it feels dumb and really forced. McCarthy's Spy was way better.
I think the first time I actually laughed, instead of semi-smiling was during the bloopers in the credits.
Good for an airplane movie though, when you want to be sort of entertained (and maybe doze off), but not actually watch a movie you're looking forward to.
Holy moly!!!!!!!!!!!!! This one came completely out of left field for me.
Knowing nothing of the movie, I assumed it's just some light fairy tale movie. And it is that, but also so much more. This is like a fairy tale Galore! I swear the guy who wrote this was on more drugs than the guy who wrote Alice in Wonderland (and we all know that guy was tripping balls).
It's all over the place with the story, but it…
I loved this back in the day and it was a subject of many a school yard re-tellings (especially Tarantino's joke).
Features Banderas right in his element, Salma Hayek is gorgeous as ever and this, for me, is probably the highlight of Rodriguez's career. The Spy Kids stuff is not for me and the Machete and Planet Terror stuff got a little too gimmicky for my taste. Sin City was kinda fun though. Desperado, however, is just the perfect blend…
