    I like Jake Gyllenhaal, I liked him in Brothers... but I thought this movie looks crap and you've just confirmed it for me. Definitely won't be going to see it.

    Agreed, went to see it last weekend and i was really disappointed. Considering the amount of money they spent on it you would have thought they would have made a better script. Even for a video game it was lame. Massive plot holes and not enough action either.

    Still better than Max Payne though ;)

    Isn't anything? Only movie in my life so far that I have walked out of.
    As for PoP, my friends will probably want to see it but now I don't want to. So thanks for saving me money ;).

    Theres a few bits in it but not enough, most of it is sword fights that you could see in any movie. And the dagger of time was only used two or three times .

    That sucks. I was looking forward to this after playing the first game. Ah well, saves me money and I'll just rent it.

    That also reminds me, time to sell my BR copy of MP. :eek:

    Given the bad reviews to this movie and Sex and the City 2, don't be surprised that Shrek Forever After comes out #1 over Memorial Day weekend.

    The action was ok, nothing great, the only good bit i had already seen in the trailer anyway. There was a distinct lack of wall running and dagger of time usage. Most of the action could have been in any other movie

    also it was filled with random pointless scenes
    suddenly the action would cut to some horse riders, then back again!
    it was very monty python*











    *without any of the humour

    Knew it would suck when Jake Gyllenhaal was cast. He's better suited in dramas. He's not an action star.

    This forum is probably the worst for movie reviews.

    Agreed. Brothers and Jarhead were both great flicks.

    I really had no desire to see this in the first place. You know what else was disappointingly dull (and doesn't warrant it's own thread)?

    Robin Hood.

    You can tell that they were going for 'Batman Begins" vibe with Robin Hood. It was more about how he came to be. However they got it wrong as it wasn't that entertaining and a bit dull.

    From the ending however you can tell the second one should be better.

    I have yet to see a good movie that has been based off of a video game. It just can't happen.

    What, you never saw the Mario Bros. movie? ;)

    He's also better suited in films where the character is....well.....white.
