Brilliant if you love cheesy, shitty and downright irritating action movies. Guy Pearce shames himself by playing a stereotypical action lead, the guy you hate to love but in the end saves the day and gets the girl. Plus Lennie James, Peter Stormare and Joseph Gilgun are there. Four amazing actors, one terrible 'movie'.
This film has all the right ingredients to make a cult classic, and I could feel that all the way through from start to finish. The acting, superb, and one of the only Hugh Jackman roles I've ever really enjoyed (The Prestige being one of the other ones, of course). I adore this film, I was not expecting something like this and perhaps that's why it's so good, I was shocked that it was anything more than a mediocre Hugh…
What is it about a John Hughes film that makes you want to watch it over and over again? It's completely unpredictable, and yet so brilliant. Ferris Bueller makes me want to go back to school just so I can skip it and try all of these things, though I know that's probably impossible.
It's such a fun film! It's smooth, the acting is perfect and the characters are loveable - even the ones you aren't supposed to love. 4 and a half stars, because it doesn't quite reach a five. It lacks something... still, very enjoyable and a must watch for anyone!
Instantly one of my all time favourite films. It was so much more than I was expecting, the beautiful cinematography for a start! Not to mention the soundtrack, the acting and the tragic but fantastic narrative.
McGregor's performance certainly surprised me, I wasn't expecting something so... unique. And yet, Beginners is just that. Christopher Plummer, Melanie Laurent, Ewan McGregor and of course the dog, whose name I can't remember made this film one I will never forget.
