Congrats to Jax Teller
I hope Jax Teller brings as much emotion into this movie as he did after the bama loss, could be an epic performance.
Never thought you guys could look slower than Nd but it did happen. My mind was blown. It was funny seeing that notre dame was a better team than Alabama. That fact is pretty surprising
wow, could they have packed this baby full of any more beefcake?
Reviews dropping on Wednesday
Did this release today?
73% on RT
About to board a flight. Really wish you could watch Netflix offline on a laptop.
Pretty God damn disappointed. Had a bunch of ways it could have went. Been looking forward to this for a while.
You can, fam
Considering the source, I'm taking this as a positive review.
You mother fucker
Just finished it. Nothing groundbreaking. Didn't hate it. Not memorable. Easy watch.
why didn't they just hide the money and do two pickups with the helicopter? Or put more in the prop plane? Seemed like they were cool with the pilot who brought the helicopter
Watched last night. I didn't hate it. But I felt like they rushed a great deal of the film.
I honestly expected more from an Oscar Isaac film.
I thought it was fairly lame but the scenery was beautiful
The first 30 min were slow as fuck, then BAM next scene theyre outside the drug kingpin’s house in the Colombian jungle.
Wish they wouldve gone more into the planning, getting into the country, etc. Instead Afleck just comes up with a plan off the top of his head.
Lazy movie, alright action sequences.
Afleck losing his cool and wanting to get more at the house was so dumb.
Best part was Afleck taking one to the dome. Did not expect that.
right? He was supposed to be the calm and collected one they all looked to. I guess it was supposed to show what money does to people?
Also, as soon as they started getting shot at in the rocks, I knew it was the kid from the village.
It was fine.
Watching Jax Teller try to wrangle in that British accent and failing miserably was the highlight.
He was all over the fucking place.
I wanted Red Viper to start running around some bad guys: "You raped her! You murdered her!"
I'm glad I wasn't the only one who caught that at the beginning.
On a different note, the line “Tell your girls they can stop studying, daddy’s going to buy their way into Harvard” would be a throwaway, but in light of recent news it made me laugh hysterically.
The ending was pretty disappointing but a decent film outside of that. Don’t think I’d watch it again, though.
It was fine. It’s a nothing else is on watch. Ending was lame with lots of decisions that make no sense at all.
Ultimately, it was Affleck's fault for the unraveling of the heist. That extra 15 minutes he calculated, turned out to catastrophically alter the course of their journey, and Affleck.
And who the shooter was was very predictable imo
Why the fuck Afleck's family need $5 million+?! Sorry, I'm keeping my share.
The planner of the whole scheme (can't remember his name) looked pissed at the end when he was the only one left.
And you best believe I'm getting Alex Honnold and Co. to come get the rest of that money after the snow melts.
A few more things that bothered me
1. Did he really have a deal with the government? If so, after they did the recon wouldn’t it be suspicious the bad guy died and the house burned down right afterwards?
2. Why didn’t the drug lord call his people while hiding ? The could have come prepare to rescue him instead of getting picked off
the plan is for $75 million, which is plenty. Even if they want more fine but why in the world would you overweigh the helicopter when you know you have to go over the Andes. Also, why not just drop a bunch of it off at the bottom with multiple people. Have two fly it over, land and then makes trips back and forth to get the bags?
Lastly, that drug lord has 200 something million in the house and leaves it guarded with less than 10 people at any given time?
I figured they meant the money would be ruined from the moisture. Otherwise it wouldn't be that tough of a job to retrieve; certainly not for guys with their skills
Talking about me right?
That's what he did for most of Pacific Rim
Apologies. That movie was pretty meh.
1. Yea Oscar Isaac fesses up to them before the heist that there was never any deal with the government. He just said that to get them down to South America.
1. Oscar Issacs character made it sound like this was an off the books assignment. The reason I believe this is because of the cargo trailer he had with all of their supplies. Apparently all of that supplies was unmarked/from out of the country.
2. I'm not sure. But are you able to make a phone call within a panic room?
I think they were under the impression that the cartel would be following them immediately. Remember when they dropped the hot chick and her brother off in Peru. She immediately said "That's not just Lorea's money. It's other peoples money as well. Everyone will be coming after you". Nevertheless, this part of the story pissed me off as well. They could have easily given the air transportation connect $6M for two helicopters and then they would have avoided the overweight issue.
Also, did anyone else find the helicopter crash fishy as hell? Obviously, I knew they wouldn't die. But the whole thing seemed a bit off. Especially when Don Billingsley decided to run towards the chopper while it was still spinning on the ground.
Came across this on wiki (Hanks & Depp would have been funky lead roles for this film imho. I can also see how Bigelow was connected to this film. The beginning kind of had a "The Hurt Locker" feel to it)
Helicopter scene was stressful
his family didn't, but i think the point was for it to be an act of absolution. in pursuing the money, isaac and his team violated everything they stood for as soldiers, got a close friend killed, and left a trail of bodies in their wake. but that's also what i found so frustrating with the ending. the main guy getting the coordinates for the money they left behind seems like an obvious set up for a (completely unnecessary and unearned) sequel, and totally undermines the previous scene.
Overall, i thought it was fine. agree with the critique that the first 30 minutes could have been put to better use. seeing them actually plan the assault would have been interesting and also would have provided an opportunity for character development/bonding.
I would agree with this if Affleck wasn't the one responsible for most of what happened because he was so damn greedy. If he doesn't make them stay longer grabbing more money than any of them needed the only person killed at the house is the drug Lord. Then if he's not so damn greedy when they're loading the helicopter they get to the boat easily.
I enjoyed it. I wouldn’t feel safe recommending it to anyone.
It was pretty meh.
Affleck’s character snapped in the house. He saw a way to resolve his personal and financial crises, it clouded his judgement and led to a series of bad decisions. It was out of character based on the reverence the others had for him, but he’d likely never encountered an opportunity like that before.
I enjoyed it.
I would say watch Afterlife, it’s really good
Also really dark
Meh. Uneven and kinda lame. Disappointing.
For a group of guys that thought everything out you'd think they'd realize the load was going to be too heavy. Take your 75 million and get home easy.
