The Transporter

Your Reviewget this gear!

I thought that this movie was not as bad as many people had told me that it was.  It was a typical movie of its kind but I thought that all of the action was pretty good and the fighting scenes were pretty realistic.  There was nothing special about this movie and nothing really that I can point out except that it was not bad.  The ending fit the movie perfectly.  I just think that the smuggling of people over in crates just did not seem to be a very big deal, even though it is. 

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

I thought that this movie was pretty good but not as good as the original.  I thought that this sequel missed sort of the fairy tale of the whole thing.  I liked in part one how they faced so many demons who were not even related to the evil.  They were just evil things that lived in the different lands.  This movie sort of takes place all in the same setting with too many humans and not enough fantasy.  The trees were okay but they could have been a little less comical.  The whole movie builds up to the battle at the end.  I thought the corrupting of Frodo's mind was the best thing in this movie.  It shows the rings power and how it controls a person.

I thought this movie was rather good despite the critics somewhat harsh reviews.  I thought that it may have taken a few successful things from other movies and put them together to make a pretty good story about friendship.  I choose to believe that Harry decided to go to the Sudan to save his friends and not because they called him a coward.  I thought that the tribal savior was around a little too much, it was just a little too coincidental.  I would have liked to have seen Harry face his fears a little more, but for these are minor changes and for the most part this movie is enjoyable.

This movie was just above terrible.  The second half of the movie tried its hardest to redeem the first half but without much luck.  The first half of this movie is boring and I don't really see that much relevance to the rest of the story.  The second half of the movie is not bad but it does not break any kind of new idea really from any other sub movie.  The radiation aspect of the movie was shocking and disturbing to see but could not make up for the rest of this movie.

I thought that this was a very good action movie.  I thought that the storyline was creative because it sort of had you rooting for the bad guy.  Even though Matt Damon seems to have done nothing wrong he is a hitman and that sort of makes him the bad guy.  I also liked how this movie had some very realistic action scenes.  It seems like nowadays movies get so out of hand with special effects that most of the things that happen are just out of control.

I thought that this movie was a good Bond movie.  I think that some of the stunts that Bond performs are a little harsh but the gadgets and the characters are good.  I think that the villain is very good for a bond movie.  Maybe a little less sophisticated than some of those in the past but still very good.  I thought that this movie may have had a little too much action and some of the visual was really fake.  I thought the fencing scene was very good and I little more of that would have been good.  The whole surfing along the ice was a little out there.  All in all a good Bond movie but would like to see a little more conversation and a little less action.

Knockaround Guys

All in all this movie had a couple of enjoyable mob scenes, sort of like the mob versus the hicks.  The point of the movie was just pretty stupid.  The sons of mobsters feel that their life is terrible because of their names.  Well if that was such a problem they could change their names.  It seems like a bunch of rich kids crying over how tough they have it and wanting to be tough guys.  Vin Diesel and Seth Green play okay characters and it is always good to watch John Malkovich but without the actors this movie would have been a disgrace.

I thought that this movie was not that bad.  I think that Vin Diesel gives a sort of rebel James Bond performance.  This movie is just like a James Bond movie in that it is filled with girls and gadgets.  There is only one part of the movie where the action is a little rediculous and that is the avalanche scene.  But for the most part this movie is believable.  I thought that music was good and this movie is a fun action movie.

Minority Report

I thought this movie was excellent and probably one of Tom Cruises best movies if not his best.  I thought that the idea was amazing and it combined a horror, mystery, and suspense.  This is one of those movies where you can hardly find out what is going on the whole time through.  Just when you think that you have it all found out the movie just starts up again.  It was a little long but it did not draw out at all.  The ending was good and fitting.  The situation at the end is unfair to the man who tries to kill Cruise because he may not have wanted to be a murderer but he was forced to murder to vouch for his own invention.
