Bring back Linda Carter's wonder woman I say because this is terrible. I can only assume it's got the plaudits it did because it has a female director and female protagonist and the current climate of #metoo and age of groupthink? As one British newspaper reviewer stated this new wonder woman is just a "weaponized smurfette": I have to concur because she is so one-dimensional!
Hey, at least the two films it ripped off were high octane fun, with die hard setting new precedents for action adventure films and towering inferno filled with so many star cameos that blink and you'll miss one - but this blatant ripoff is just utterly preposterous. For example, the one legged hero somehow manages to climb the external structure of a adjacent crane to get above the height of the fire in the eponymous skyscraper: 96 floors high at a speed that would put an arborial ape to shame - and there's even more ridiculousness to come!
This film has been done numerous times infinitely better. Notably, films , which star its director, suffer from the conflict of interest which invariably arises - and it's very much the case here: clooney needs to make up his mind whether he wishes to be a star or director - it's clear he can't do both!
As other posters of commented the initials of this show spell out SOS..which immediately spells disaster!
I for one can't understand why the media currently fetes Mr Crouch: the BBC have heavily pushed both this and his podcasts - hi frankly find him as humorous as a haemorrhoids!
Very, very enjoyable. Remember it being released back in 2016, and, as not a particular fan of either of the two leads, didn't give it serious consideration and as a result didn't watch it.
Oh, what can error if judgement on my behalf.
I can only imagine individuals bemoaning this on IMDb aren't nuanced enough and that it goes totally over their heads?
How on earth did this crap ever get made?
IRA terrorists ups sticks and moves to USA and joins Boston police?
Glorifies the IRA and period of time known as the troubles here in the UK by referring to "the cause"!
Classic Hollywood depiction of de oirish, which makes patriot games look like a master class in character study by comparison
Endless playing of u2 - cos theyre oirish you know!
God awful oirish accents all round!
Series 1 was an enjoyable, albeit low key, x files type show. However, series 2 became increasing preposterous and ott. this is highlighted by the series finale where the air force capt suddenly developed submariner skills!
Alas, it ended on a cliffhanger which will never be resolved.
Would any government let dinosaurs - particularly very dangerous carnivorous ones at that - roam free? No, obviously not, so goldblums characters announcement of welcome to "Jurassic world", is, frankly, ridiculous!
Sadly, so much in this film makes little sense or bares scrutiny.
Robert Carlyle's character, Gary "Gaz" Schofield...
Is really an unlikeable arsehole. He's got no redeeming characteristics. One understands his desperation, however, his total lack of anger management and abusive language he demonstrates, plus intentionally ruining the chaps job interview chances, were abysmal!
Redford and Kingsley are much too old to play the two protagonists: one assumes they were probably graduate students in the events at the start of the film and later should be in their mid forties, however RR is 56 when filmed!
All very one sided: painting the british as colonial aggressors and Turks as the oppressed - when, infact, turkey has been involved in more than its own far share of genocides! I can only assume this was funded by Erdogan?
Crapola - makes the 2007 film seem masterful by comparison
As usual the BBC has taken liberties with an original story and decided to pepper it can improve upon the writers creation by peppering their adaptation with ethic minorities to suit it's pc agenda: surprised they didn't decide iofir bynerson, the armoured best, was too white!
