Based on a true story which is always worth a watch considering true events happen. But......the tension just doesn't cut it in this one. Not that I'm expecting load bangs and explosions but the pace was not helping and I was losing interest rapidly. It's awful to see what happened and to this day is probably still going on in somebody's life.
It's intriguing to see what happens throughout but don't expect any high class performances and tense scenes because I didn't.
Anything with the words 'True Story' involved in a movie always deserves credit no matter who stars in it or directs etc.
Some stories you read in the papers or see on the news are quite compressed and sometimes key elements are either not shown or explained.
This is why I will give any movie credit because sometimes they show the real concept of what exactly happened.
This story is rather intriguing and plods along slowly. James and Jonah really pulled off great performances to make it work.
Worth a watch and not for James Franco lady's :-/)
No matter how many times I watch this it get's better and better.
This is Arnold's best in my opinion,after the film finishes you end up either quoting/texting/Facebook/twitter etc...placing some of the best lines EVER in movie history, that someone out there will cherish.
Just one is missing
"i'll be back" ;--(
The effects/action are top notch and like the so called fishy thing called 'Jaws', you don't see what the predator looks like until 40 odd minutes in.
QT has done it again for me.
Already knowing that the genius is a big fan of the old westerns, I knew this would not be failure.
Rooting,tooting and shooting all the way through with some fantastic dialogue that keeps you compelled for 2 and a half hours.
I will eat my hat if DiCaprio doesn't get a golden Oscar for this, as he fully deserves to have one now.(update:it was tough to chew)
In fact the whole cast deserves…
