Not bad at all. What is wrong with people? I knew the critics had to have been at least partially wrong considering that despite it going to DVD supersuper fast, the DVD keeps selling out at Best Buy!
Good reasons to watch:
a) Antoine Fuqua (Training Day!) is a good director, so you figure it’s got to be at least a SOLIDLY directed movie. It is.
b) Marky Mark. Hello. And shirtless. Doh!
c) A dog. And the reason to NOT let something go? SPOILER IN THE NEXT LINE! HIDE YOUR EYES! (But it is only a tiny sort of “doh! of course!” spoiler…) “I don’t think you understand. They killed my dog.” I am a child of my mother, that is vengeance reasoning I can totally get behind.
d) Great performance by Michael Pena, in a very Mark Ruffalo type way.
Reasons why it’s not THAT good?
c) predictable and kinda cheesy.
Not a GREAT movie. But worth watching in my book.
