Audience Member Paul pulls another random movie out of the cobwebs. If you haven't ever seen this one, GRAB it off netflix NOW. It's pretty damn good! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Interesting premise, but silly execution. James Belushi as a super hitman is about as believable as a politician. There was an interesting scene at the end by one of the characters that was copied in Road to Perdition though... Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member I thought this was a great film. The premise is rather simple: A young guy saves a mafia guy & is trained by Jim Belushi's character, & they end up targeting Sheryl Lee's character as "practice." There was plenty of humour throughout, & the performances were very good. Although I thought the entire performance was very good, I stll thought Sheryl Lee's performance as the shy, eccentric girl was more impressive than when she started to defend herself. It seemed more challenging in terms of acting. The whole performance was good though. I also really enjoyed the ending too. Great, overlooked film. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Caught this one late night on HBO and it's one of my favorite movies. Jim Belushi gives a memorable performance for a character that must have been a lot of fun to play. This movie is no oscar contender but I gave it 5 stars because I've watched it so many times that I felt it deserved it. This is a great cult classic. Now will someone please release it on DVD so I can throw out my VHS player. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member I caught this on HBO late one night and seeing as how nothing else was on, I decided to give it a try. I was actually pleasantly surprised by it. Sure the acting and direction was nothing too deep or meaningful but the characters themselves were what drew me in, particularly the parts of James Belushi and Sheryl Lee. What I liked most about it was the ending. Plot holes and disbelievability aside, it ended how I wanted it to end and that's tops in my book. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Audience Member I give this movie a "B-" on a grading scale. This movie had the potential to be outstanding - but there are too many "holes" in the plot for it to be great: * The ending scene is just unbelievable. * Kyle Chandler's strong feelings of love are a little far-fetched. * Jim Belushi teaches Chandler all this respect for hits on one hand, and then disrespects people's graves on the other hand. Overall, the movie was much better than I expected - but it could have been so much more - had the plot been a little tighter. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Read all reviews
