I was looking for another rating for this movie - I was going to put wait for rental but it should be seen on a big movie screen. Stay away didn't seem appropriate.
Didn't have a clue what this movie was about when I went to see it but in the first 20-25 minutes it was so slow I new I needed ear plugs or sunglasses. It was going to be loud or gory/bloody, which it was. Did not expect what would happen to some of the main Stars. Cameron's car scene was stupid. It did keep me in my seat but I didn't like the ending.
I didn't get much out of this movie. But I got a good performance out of Cameron diaz. I think her perfromance may be the only stand out in a lame movie like "The Counsler" is what Cameroin Diaz did to that car. I want more scenes like that from this movie, but all that I got out of that movie. That film is about a high priced lawyer whose life fell apart by bad people. The film isn't as good as last year "Savages," directed by Oliver Stone. The film is directed by Ridley Scott also produces "The Good wife." a show that I'm hooked on. At least, he got the Good Wife part right.
just plain bad
I went because it has many fantastic actors! The acting is terrific! Movie is very exciting! A bit violent but most movies are nowadays. Yes, I recommend it.
