If you watched the FP hoping for a serious movie, you're gonna have a bad time
It's hard for me to rate this movie because the creators CLEARLY knew what they were doing when they made this movie, unlike other "awful" movies such as Troll 2 where they actually attempted to make a good movie.
And thing is, the FP succeeds completely in what they set out to do (where as other movies like Snakes on a Plane and The Expendables completely come up short in my eyes).
It's just the perfect level of ridiculousness, not too much (you can never have too much with a movie like this) and certainly not too little. You have to ask yourself one question when watching this movie: Russel Crowe's Maximus said it best in the movie "The Gladiator":
"ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED???!!!"
And boy does this movie entertain you - from start to finish my eyes were glued to the screen, in semi-disbelief at what was unfolding. From the start - to the ending scene (which in my eyes was the director giving us a little "wink" saying "We knew what we were making") This movie is just non-stop entertainment.
I suppose it isn't for everyone, but honestly if you have any sort of heart or soul at all I just can't see how you wouldn't fall in love with "The FP"
I don't understand people that went into this movie expecting some serious film. Did they not see the previews? Warring clans that settle their disputes by having a DDR match to the Death? Just what the hell were you actually expecting when you picked up this movie?
The movie delivers on all levels that it intended to, and for that I give this movie a PERFECT 10 out of 10. Never Ignorant, Getting' Goals Accomplished.
