Jokes aside... We are miles apart opinion-wise. I really think that the acting in this film is one of the things that sets it apart from most action flicks. ;-)

I love Disney movies but this is one of the worst movies I've ever seen and I really don't get how people like it. Everything classic about Disney is lost here- there weren't any songs, the characters weren't all that great and the story was boring. It felt more like a comedy routine than a timeless story. I don't mind Pixar because I thought Ratatouille, Toy Story and Monsters Inc. were all good but this absolutely stunk.


Finding Nemo isn't a Disney movie, it's a Pixar movie (Yes, I know Disney owns Pixar, but they still aren't the same thing). Disney movies have songs, Pixar movies do not. Finding Nemo definitely isn't one of the best Pixar movies, but it's still very, very good and is in no way deserving of a 1 imo.


I hope Disney is getting back on track with Princess and the Frog and Rapunzel, but I do think they devoted all their energy or maybe money in this case to Pixar movies for the past 10+ years. You could argue that there hasn't been a real so called "Disney Masterpiece" since Tarzan in 1999 even though Disney claims they've made 6 since then.

Wolverine - i was a huge Wolverine fan as a kid...this movie was a big bowl of "meh". a few decent action scenes, but nothing great. the CGI was pretty bad for the most part too. story was also kind of lame...wish i would have went and seen Star Trek instead
6/10

OK. Please check your Man Card at the door on your way out... :-D

It was OK but I mean come on....really? I love a good action flick as much as the next guy but this was mostly miss. There were a few good ass kicking scenes surrounded by mostly...garbage to be totally honest. If I had to rank the top 100 spy/action flicks of all time I doubt it would even make the list. Good fight scenes and unbelievable high-speed car chases does not make up for bad acting and an even worse story....OK well somethmes it does, but this time it didn't. :-b


That almost exactly summarizes how I feel.

"You're going to be taken" "You have 5 seconds until they come".

Wait, say what? How in the HELL could you have known that from 5,000 miles away? :-?

I agree with Met's review completely. I have no idea why that movie made 100 million in the theaters.

Has anyone seen Pride and Glory, with Edward Norton? What is everyone's opinion of that?

Considering I like Edward Norton and Colin Farrell, I was pretty disappointed. It was boring and forgettable.
