Liked the film overall and lived up to most of the hype I had heard. Editing was a bit choppy in parts though, and I do agree with some people that it could have been 15 minutes or so shorter. Found half hour to 45 minutes pretty slow, but afterwards it picked you up and wouldn't put you down. Acting was great, with Heath stealing every scene he was in and the climax at the warehouse very gripping. Definitely worth every penny of the admission ticket and much more.

Why no IMAX in STL?

I'm pissed that I have to fork over $34 for the IMAX.

IMAX screen just 20 min from my home... That's what I wanted to see it on originally, but my wife was not in agreement.

Hence, the :-C

I will see it on IMAX soon, though. I guarantee. }:-)

I recommend some flowers or some sort of a surprise gift for her. Come on man. You are married. You are supposed to be good at this stuff.

Question about the boat loads of cash this movie is making. Is it just the studios who will get it or do the actors/directors and whatnot get some as well?

Well that's just like, your opinion man.

If my understanding is correct, the studios take in the majority of reciepts. However, there are ocassions (i.e. Harrison Ford w/ Star Wars) where an actor has it written in their contract that they will get a percentage of the profits.

I believe the studio gets it unless the actors contracts are based on ticket sales like some have been based on it the past.
but many are just included in the budget.
