Much better than I expected. Whenever I thought it was leaning one politically, it altered course and made a counter-argument.
One thing that bugged me is that it seems to take awhile to contact important people within government. I hope that is just a dramatization.
Alan Rickman was awesome as to be expected. RIP Bill Clay!
Words cannot explain how much I loathe this 'movie' (I use the term loosely as not to insult any other movies) Very few films have had this kind of reaction on me, I very rarely give anything below 2 1/2 star rating as I can usually find something I enjoyed about almost any film. I also enjoy action movies, which is why I rented it in the first place. So I'm not a hater of this type of film, just…
I re-watched this with my youngest. She is 10, sure it's rated R but only because of the language, and she hears worse everyday at school. (Not to mention from her mother, but I won't go there) To no surprise, she really liked it, she was excited when she recognized Hans as being Snape. I had to explain a few 80's references to her, but overall it still stands up as one of the best action films of all time.
