The following are films that I own on DVD and Blu-ray that I have not watched. This is likely to…
If you are going down, take everyone with you
The lives of three female assassins take a sudden turn when their charming boss lures them into one last job. They soon find themselves thrust into a bizarre situation involving a psychotic hit man, a grizzled trucker and a delusional line cook.
Well, that was fucking dire. There is no film here, it is maybe a short film, but it gets padded out to 90 minutes with pointless repeated scenes and stupid riffs on great Tarantino moments. Whitaker is solid, but he is the only ok element in a terrible film.
Tarantino-esque crime thriller about 3 girls who gets double crossed by there drug kingpin boss & must fight for there lives, Top cast but muddled direction & story leaves you feeling underwhelmed
Another sad example that even with Bruce Willis, Forest Whittaker a movie can be boring and unbalanced. Director Aaron Harvey is simply trying to hard to deliver a Tarantino movie. Everything Pulp Fiction is, Catch.44 isn't, apart from the soundtrack maybe.
The soundtrack is excellent and I did enjoy Forest Whittaker who, for me, always brings some extra to the screen.
Other than that, it is just better to avoid this movie.
Who would have thought, people are still cranking out these Tarantino ripoffs!
Forced cliche jokes
Girls that think they are tougher than they really are
Film that thinks its smarter than it really is
Straight to video nonsense that's better than it has any right to be. Shallow and derivative hut made with plenty of style and a pretty solid cast.
Ugh. True Ameritrash, like an NRA wet dream.
It just felt like they were trying to make a Tarantino film. Whitaker gave a good performance.
Feels like a Tarantino movie. Decent twists. Tes is slooow at processing.
For a film with so much talent it sure was disappointing. Willis, Whitaker and the beautiful Akerman all give bland performances and never really live themselves into their roles and make us believe in their characters. Also the film itself doesn't have any interesting plot and mostly just repeats a lot of the same garbage. Blah....
What a waste. Nothing here. Only Whitaker does half decent work. With actors who give a damn and cut down to about half an hour, this might work.
People hated this movie but I really liked it LOL
For Tes and her two cohorts Kara and Dawn, the job sounded simple enough: intercept a double-cross drug shipment for their crime boss Mel at an isolated diner. But when an unstoppable chain of events unfolds, everyone soon realizes no one is who they seem and the job may be something other than eliminating the competition. What started as simple instructions has now turned into a deadly cat-and-mouse game - with large guns pointed at everyone.
The film is tough to follow at first. While it is obvious the film seeks to be a neo-noir. That has a sense of humor that wants the audience to be in on the joke. Even though it seems the joke is only appealing…
It's simply a bad movie and it can't be saved by the better actors. It's like they try too hard, but accomplish nothing.
Woof, this film was ruff!
