In Passion Play, you get Mickey Rourke's best Clayface impression, Megan Fox with wings, The Room-style rooftop green screens, Bill Murray as a gangster, Chuck Liddell as a thug, desert circus freaks, and STILL the movie is a total fucking bore.
Just an awful, awful, awful, awful movie.
Elämä potkii jazz-muusikkoa kupoliin. Pientä piristystä tuo outolintu, jolla on kivat tissit.
Nyt ei taas ihan auennut.
The most impressive thing about this film is the fact that they made it. Someone read this script and was like, "Yep, we're gonna fucking make this!"
That is dedication.
People have rated this 3.5 stars and higher! I'm so pleased that some people have the audacity to take this seriously and enjoy it. Bravo!
The story is fucking ludicrous. Not like awesome ludicrous like Leon: The Professional or Hot Fuzz (first two off the top of my…

but but but
the story is great, really loved it
just one little question, what has the title to do with the film?
this title put me off at first, its lousy
Ziniet ko? Man nav ne jausmas ko par šo saka pasaules kino varenie un, principā arī tas pie kājas, bet šis man reāli patika. Pat vairāk, es pat atļaušos teikt ka te tādas Vima Vendersa filmu sajūtas radās. Kaut kas no "Miljons dolāru hoteļa", kaut kas no "Wings Of Desire". Tā noskaņa, tā mūzika un pats stāsts man tā vien lika ik pa brīdim pārliecināties, ka režisors tiešām NAV Venders, bet gan ne pārāk gudro filmu režisors Mičs Glazers. Nē,…
Wow. Where do I start with PASSION PLAY?
I remember hearing about this movie for a long time. It got publicity for some leaked on-set photos of Megan Fox back when any photos of Megan Fox were a big deal. It was also one of Mickey Rourke’s first lead roles after his Oscar-nominated performance in The Wrestler. Finally, Bill Murray, a guy who is more particular about his career than most, was the third lead.
It seemed to have all…
Dark and meditative love story with Rourke as a musician/junkie who rescues a woman with angel wings from a freak show and sells her off to a crime boss to save his own life only to fight to get her back again.
Watched this a couple of days ago and remember virtually nothing about it. Megan fox was pretty and she had wings. Utter crap though.
[noir train wreck] Yep that was as train wrecky as advertised. It is a little bit fun to watch when analysing the screwyness of the movie. Micky Rourke’s lack of investment, Megan Fox trying so hard to act, the sad presence of Bill Murray. All enjoyable things. It is impressive how much screen presence Rourke and Murray have even when they aren’t trying. The delusions of the grandeur that the filmmaker had is also interesting to watch. Purely a study movie though. Also, the cinematography was very good.
I had very low expectations going into this one, so it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Even so, the story is preposterous. Most of the perfomances feels like sleepwalkers, except for Megan Fox believe it or not. She kops a lot of shit for her acting so I'll give her some cred as I actually thought she delivered a relatively good performance. I liked the look of her wings for the most part except for the last 5 minutes, those shots in the end reeked of shit.
On second thought, I feel 2 stars was too generous of me.
