Wow! The haters are hatin alright. I suppose I am the only one in the universe who liked this movie? Aw so what. I don't care what other humans think about anything anyhow, especially would-be reviewers who generally don't know crap about anything and think they are writing little essays for highschool newspapers and trying to look intelligent. All this pointless yakking about plot and acting and other crap! None of which means anything at all. Movies are texture and nothing else. This comic book is loaded with texture. It oozes with it. I predict the heavy metal crowd and the nerds <more>
will love this movie. Why? Atmosphere. It speaks a language that only US comic reading metal heads in the wasteland could possible understand. All these would-be reviewers from foreign lands completely miss the point. All their film school pretensions mean nothing to the metal kid in the urban wasteland. These kids don't read or write reviews so their voice is missing here. This movie reads like a comic and its all eyeball kicks and nothing else. No thought required. Excellent! You can have your Bergman and your Wim Wimberg and what all else. We loves our comics and we don't care what you like or don't like. Snipes is king! Long live texture rich non-actor Snipes! Down to hell with pretentious holier than thou filmschool rubbish!
There is no way to excuse all the unnecessary hate of the reviews here, this movie is an a popcorn gem. Excellent production values, no amateurs just phoning in their lines, and a director that knows how to do more with his camera than just point and shoot. I find ludicrous reviews saying 'too much blood and gore', its a HORROR movie for Pete's sake. If it's not taken from a graphic novel, it's clearly written with that tone in mind, and it succeeds. Even the dialog is delivered with what is clearly text balloons over their heads. And it's got everything you could <more>
want, zombies, monsters, explosions, magic, blood, gore, gun play, whips and chains, bloated cleavages, cowboys, freaky contacts, hangings, be-headings in two flavors! , tornadoes, I mean come on, they even throw in the shocking twist, the precocious kid who saves the day, and the wicked one liner. Pop the popcorn, crack open a cold beverage and enjoy. The director and cinematographer squeeze every angle and vista they can out of an excellent location, effective costumes and make-up, and even the graphics are fun. Enjoy.
Great filmmaking - camera work, score, acting, and visuals. An overall fun movie. (by Joe_Crisan)
I truly don't understand why this movie is so badly rated. Thus was like a graphic novel come to life, with great 1970's kung-fu style cinematography not fights, just camera work ,a great, appropriate score, action, monsters, revolvers, and great acting.Sure, the plot could have benefited from a bit of revision and tightening, but it's not difficult to follow. If taken like a graphic novel, it fits right in. Pick up some Image graphic novels and you'll understand that the way the plot is presented is very much aligned with that style of storytelling.This gets a solid 8 <more>
because this is the type of movie you pat $13.50 at a theater for.
