Agree with you. Very good movie. A bit derrivative of other sci-fi movies, but it didnt bother me until the very end. Still Cruise delivered an epic line to make it worth it.

Nope, haven't seen it, but heard good things about it. If you saw Drive with Ryan Gosling theres a movie coming out directed by the guy who did Drive and stars Gosling called Only God Forgives. Supposed to be one of the big hits this year.

If u like a bunch of action it's not bad. Is it a great movie? No. Like I said I enjoyed the females in it. Lol. Rock was pretty funny in it. Overall I'd give it a C

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

I just saw Pain and Gain as well, and it's safe to say I'm definitely not a big fan of it. The fact that it's based off a true story is sad. It had its' moments but those are few and far between. I should've waited until it hit Redbox instead.

Well the trailer made me think it was like a comedy/action, but I felt that the three main characters were stupid, the kidnappee was a jerk, and there really wasn't anybody to root for. It felt like it had no direction, like it couldn't make up it's mind as to whether it wanted to be an action or a comedy, and the grisly parts towards the end felt out of place. And I didn't like the multiple references towards its being a true story, they felt like reminders that crazy asshats like the protagonists really exist out there. I guess if you're not expecting anything out of that movie, it's worth seeing, but if you expect comedy or action it's disappointing.

Re: Merged: The Movies Thread

The commercials made me think it was a comedy as well but it really isn't. they also pushed the whole "American dream " thing too much but like I said if u like some good action scenes, boobs and ass, and a crazy story then u will like it. I will say I didn't think marky mark was on his best in this film.
