Silly shark movie with some terrible dialogue but still fun. Great ending

Really good movie. Takes a little bit to get going, like 20 minutes, but once it does it doesn't let go. This would be an excellent pairing with The Medium or The Walking as a double feature

A Dark Song is a much better movie with pretty much the exact same premise. skip this watch that.

Overall the movie was good. Nowhere near as good as Fury Road. It is more a Drama with action, kinda more akin to the original Mad Max movies, than an action movie. With that said the action scenes were great. Overall recommend the movie if you enjoyed Fury Road and don't take it too seriously, as a friend said is basically a comic book movie. The casting was great, and the two actresses who played Furiosa were fantastic. Chris Helmswork is wonderfully crazy as a villain should be. I had a few issues with the areas of the plot and wish they ended it a few minutes early instead of connecting it to the first film directly. But overall solid film that is worth seeing. Also, I would have liked to see mad max in a very minor role, as he is the franchise, but there is no real way to include him since they wanted this to be directly related to Fury Road and have a lot of the same characters appear. Which was a bit disappointing as another comment pointed out, since you could tell who would survive and who would die. Instead, I would have rather they just did years before with the end of the movie explaining how Furiosa ended up at Immortal Joe's sanctuary, with completely new characters up to that point. But these are all nitpicks of an all-around good movie.

I am not sure why this movie is on the best horror films list as it is not a horror film at all. the constant loud bang followed by a zoom or camera shift, gave me a big headache. The movie was interesting and mostly engaging. Got a little boring in the middle but then picked up again. I don't think I have seen a film with as much ADR as this one. Personally, I thought it was ok not Gaspar Noe's best film.

Didn't see the end coming. Overall fun women-in-prison exploration movie from the 70s.

Not only is this a boring and bad movie but it was successful in giving me a headache by the end. Skip it.

"I'm Beta, you're VHS" Jokes on you buddy Beta disappeared and VHS became the standard, so you actually gave the girl a complement and said you weren't good enough for her.

Overall it is ok, worth watching with Joe Bob, but otherwise, you aren't missing much.

Very well made film. Doesn't feel like a normal low budget movie but more like a bigger budget. I really enjoyed the film with good acting all around. The ending I felt was a bit weak but overall solid film.

This movie is not bad and has some interesting effects. However, Cleasing Hour and Ghostwatch were better films with a similar premise but were more suspenseful and scary. If you haven't seen those two movies, see this first then those two. Both are also available on Shudder. Worth a watch.

Overall I enjoyed the movie. The preliminary hearing scene proves two things, on the writers have never been in a court or seen a real trial and 2 the judge was super corrupt and not hiding it. Kinda like a modern Death Wish but not as good. 70s was the king of revenge movies!

Bad movie, with terrible acting from most of the cast and dialogue. The makers of this film clearly knows nothing about computers, doctors/hospitals, and even cops. Nicholas Cage and his daughter actress are the only two who are actually acting well. Cage puts in a solid performance as always. But unless you are a Nicholas Cage completist, skip this garbage movie.

Better than I expected. Fun movie with a solid performance from Mel. Somethings didn't make sense logically in the beginning but by the end made sense. The less you know going into it the ore you will enjoy it.

Megan Fox is completely misscasted. Not sure why she is on the movie when there are a lot of more talented female actresses that would have been better in the role. The movie logic makee no sense. How did they get to Libya from NoLA so quickly. That it at least 13 hour flight. A lot of the cast is underused. Other than Megan Fox, the Antonio banderas knock off, and 50 cent the rest of the main cast was great. Over all this movie is terrible

Entertaining Action Comedy film. Nic Cage as always steals the show and puts his all into the character. He seems to be the only actor other than Ernie Hudson and the granddaughter who are having fun making the move. The fact that they kept calling the Flash Drive a Hard Drive was driving me crazy, but halfway through they just started to call the drive, why didn't they do that the entire time I don't know. Anyway, overall it was good not great, but an entertaining watch. Isn't that what movies are supposed to do? I think so, there were also some pretty funny moments. The only thing I would have preferred is if they kept the comedy going in the third act of the film.

I don't understand the controversy around this movie. I found it to be quite an enjoyable and entertaining movie. I didn't notice any politics or conspiracy theories being said. It was no different than watching a movie like Taken, except for less action and more of a Drama. I don't see why people are connecting this to Qanon considering it was written in 2015 before Qanon was the crazy cult and loony people that believe the conspiracies. It didn't even hint at that. Also, no producer is under investigation for Child Porn. People need to get their facts straight before making accusations. There was one person who crowd-funded the movie (who knows how much they actually put into the movie) and had really no say in anything, just like if you kickstart something that is under investigation for kidnapping. A POS that helped crowdfund the movie is not the same as a producer. Overall this is a movie based on a guy who worked at stopping sex trafficking and rescued both adults and kids. The movie focuses only on him rescuing kids. How much of the movie is true, probably the overall theme and the fact that he stopped some trafficking and rescued people. The movie takes dramatic liberties to make it entertaining movie, as my friend always says "It is a movie, not a documentary".

If you have seen any film where someone gets sex traffickers arrested or saves a victim like Taken, Eastern Promises, or many others there is nothing new here. It is just an enjoyable movie.

Overall a very good movie, with great cinematography, and really well done. Unique film, not the best film of 2023 but excellent. I recommend checking this one out.

The Equalizer 3 is an excellent sequel to the first movie. It also ties the series together well, in the event this is the final film. Denzel is excellent here and the movie is entertaining. It doesn't have non-stop action and seemingly fewer action scenes than the last 2 movies but does a lot more character-building at the same time does have a good amount of action scenes. I for one thoroughly enjoyed it. I only wish they had dropped some Man on Fire references.

I don't understand how this hasn't gotten a USA release, except for a brief moment on Amazon Prime Video in 2018. It is an excellent 90s action film.
