i got to agree as i just attempted to watch the movie for the first time and it's pretty boring overall as i only made it 1hr20min into it before turning it off as i was not going to waste any more of my time watching the last 40min considering my interest in it is mostly zero a large portion of what i did see as the first 30minutes or so are dull then gets a bit better here and there and then back to boring status.
boring is the worst crime a film can commit in general as it's pretty much the polar opposite of enjoyable/entertaining which is the purpose of watching movies.
usually though... if i find a movie completely boring for the first 40minutes or so ill just simply turn it off as this movie was not far from that status but around a half hour into it my interest started to increase some to a watchable level but that did not last long and went back to boring status and enough was enough at that point.
also, before anyone tells me to 'go watch Transformers' etc ill say i am a 36 year old male and while i do like simple action movies here and there there are some movies that are slower paced that i think are solid movies. check my Top 100-ish movies (the link in my signature below) as that should give you a pretty good idea on my overall tastes in movies as i would have to assume there is definitely some movies in my Top 100 that would appeal to plenty of people as i ultimately rate movies based on how enjoyable they are to watch for me and the further they get away from that the lower the rating.
p.s. for the record... my Top 100-ish movies covers all movies i gave a SOLID 8/10 or higher to which currently is 97 movies.
This is the only film I've ever been literally bored out of my mind while watching.
while i don't stumble into movies i can't finish too often it does happen here and there for me and this is one of those movies.
my rating scale in basic terms...
10 = About as much as i can enjoy a movie
9 = Nearly as much as i can enjoy a movie
8 = Memorable
7 = A Solid Thumbs Up
6 = A Mild Thumbs Up (My minimum score to re-watch a movie)
5 = Average/Forgettable (Thumbs Down)
4 = Below Average
3 = Failure and/or Boring
2 = Failure and/or Boring
1 = Abysmal/Hate
for measure... most movies i see get a 5/10 with a 6/10 being the next most common.
for the record... i ultimately rate movies based on how much i enjoy them. the further they get away from that, the lower the rating.
p.s. only 51 movies (so far) out of the 1,900+ total movies i have seen managed to get a 9/10 or 10/10 rating from me. also, only about 259 movies managed to get a 7/10 or higher from me.
