good grief. really, matt damon? really? you really want me to believe that a chief warrant officer in charge of one little patrol on the streets of baghdad, can just go ‘off mission’ and work for the cia, taking whatever of his men he wants with him, using whatever army equipment he feels like taking, without talking to or telling his CO, without having to report back for duty.
please. what a bucket of shit. look, i’m all for the suspension of disbelief, okay? otherwise i’d never watch anything but documentaries. but, honest to god, there’s a limit. and that limit is squarely when you’re producing a film set in historically real, and supposedly realistic settings.
give me a break. tell the real story. or don’t. but don’t give me stuff that takes the bounds of credibility and tosses them in the crapper.
worst film made by either damon or paul greengrass.
*sigh* … i cannot tell you how many people said to me, ‘omg you HAVE to see this kick-ass!!’
why i listen to grown men who spend their lives face first in comicbooks is something i have to re-examine about myself but consider this a(nother) lesson learned.
kick-ass is … well … nothing special, that’s for damn sure. if watching an 11-year-old girl killing people in ways that have already been done a gajillion times and a lot better in movies like Kill Bill … if that’s what defines a great film for you … well, enjoy. if watching said 11-year-old girl say cunt and motherfucker is your definition of plot, awesome … enjoy.
me? not so much. i thought it was pretty lame. plus it had nicolas cage in it, so you know it’s going to be a bucket of fuck.
don’t waste your bucks on these two films. seriously. NOT. WORTH. THE. $5.
