My motto: Life is delicate and we only live once on this planet! If you're stuck in a virtual world of your mind because your life is boring, change your motives, stop reading this and get out there NOW!!!.
On paper this probably sounded like a good idea but having Ben behind the camera and in front really didn't work out.
All the way through this felt like something was missing and I still can't quite put my finger on…
Brian DePalma must of found one of Hitchcock's thrown away scripts and tried to out do him.
It is very similar to a Hitchcock film but very below par.
Maybe it should have been shortened down so we get the twist earlier and it might have worked better.
Brian's direction is superb with plenty of background shots or close up's between each character right in front of the camera and behind.
I won't be coming back to this is a hurry and give me a Hitchcock movie any day of the week.
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…
