anyone reading posts on here before seeing the movie deserves it!

personally, i hate the movies usually but when someones rampaging through a tower block taking out chavs im loving it!! why do people go on rampages and kill innocent people IRL!? why cant they do something useful and take out some scum in the process!!

I was thinking about watching the movie but I'm not that into UK film.
Then I came here seeing the title on this thread: "Anyone else getting tired of?"
and I thought maybe he was thinking something like me "let's check" I think, and BOOM!
it goes and I now know I would've liked the end but it's pointless of me to watch it now..

There is a reason why you can make spoiler alerts.

Ryan Bingham: Are you angry at your computer?
Natalie Keener: I type with purpose.

felt asleep after 15 min.
poor movie, rating 1 as awful

reply

You rated 15 mn of the movie it should be a vote of 1/6. Too bad you were not born with the gift of patience, the action comes later, even at the end too. But I agree who would watch a movie where the action doesn't begin in the 15 minutes ? Well maybe people who watch movies where there is also a plot with characters ? Who knows, there are strange people over here.

i got about 6 letters in to your post and found it to be pointless. I'm not a big UK film fan being that I'm in the states and the Distribution companies here don't want to put a film in the theaters that might send money away from here, in other words unless a Huge DC buys the rights it's going to go strait to video here...... The ending i saw coming the two stand out set ups gave it away for me.


What i saw as the give away of the ending.....
the give away for me was that he got in over his head and either got lucky or got saved..... when he was abducted for the all of three sec in the blue van it gave it a way it was the one time he new exactly what to do which made you buy in to his char a bit more and made it clear that the end was going to be as it was.

the most enjoyable part for me.....
The gun fire it's a rare occasion for a gun shots in a movie to actually sound realistic. The AR-16/M-16 was pretty darn close to as close of the realistic sound. If you haven't fired a gun or been right near one when fired you couldn't understand how loud a long gun is compared to a hand gun

I liked it, watched it about 6 hours ago and have already recommended it to a couple friends, and would be up for watching it again which wouldn't happen for a truly awful film....

YES! So tired. In the future I bet people will call these type films the PC-pandering era.

The ending was predictable and unlikely. gutter trash "gangsta" child outguns trained solder. yeah, riiiiight

This was made for the PC-brainwashed (brain dead).

I still give the movie marks for acting, general story and such... it's just the predictable, PC-safe ending that tanks the film for me. not that the "hero" dies in the end bit, but the PC tripe/assuaging the whiners

Remember kids... this is just one man's opinion. No hate, please. If you don't agree or even dislike my opinion, simply ignore and move along or politely share your thoughts without attacking mine... it's what civilized society used to do back in the days of old. LOL!

reply

Outguns??? No, the kid shot him from behind and apparently got the jugular vein, judging from the amount of blood on the bed where he was sitting. At the time the kid administered the coup de grace, our protagonist had lost so much blood that he didn't have the strength to shoot.

It seems that your politics compels you to find a "PC-safe" ending where there's no such thing. The point of this particular ending was that the kid was fulfilling his earlier comment that the protagonist was a dead man. There's nothing PC about showing the effects of a violent environment on children. The irony of his being killed by the child he was trying to save can be chalked up to artistic license, not hand-wringing liberalism.

Then again, if by "PC tripe assuaging the whiners" you're referring to the speech in the garage, you're off the mark again. The interconnections might not be quite as pat and seamless in the real world, but this sort of overarching conspiracy has been fodder for all points in the political spectrum.

It would have been nice if you'd supported your assertions with examples and explanations rather than ipse dixit.

Not playing jmlewis46's trolling game. deleted and ignored

Personally??? Sorry, bunky, but once again, you've got it wrong. That you think I blame "the man" or "the system" says that you are so dogmatic in your beliefs that you respond in stereotypes and preconceptions. Your reading of my comments is mechanistic at best. That the kid became a killer wasn't preordained (as you would like to think I believe); you sabotage your own argument by conceding that people are responsible for how they handle their experiences. I never said otherwise. And if you think a 12- or 13-year-old can process his experience in the same rational, calm and reflective ways as an adult, then that's your problem, nobody else's.

My point was that if you express an opinion, you should be able to articulate the reasons for it, which you are clearly unable or unwilling to do. I was merely asking for examples, not "time codes and video clips." You threw out an assertion (several times) about the PC-ness of the movie without telling us how. What exactly does that mean? That's simply lazy thinking, dude, a way to establish your tough-guy credentials without giving us your thought process, such as it might be.

And btw, I have no "need" for ipse dixit. The loose translation from the Latin is "it is because I say it is." I was looking for something more than ipse dixit from you. I was looking for your basis for your opinion, not Google's.

reply

It's 9-11. I've got more to address than you and your all-knowing, superior tripe.
Stop worrying about other people. We all have opinions. I was just stating mine.
Sorry if that does not fall lockstep with your vision of life.
I will not respond to any more of your trolling drivel.
Go bait somebody more your level, you are SO much my superior.
(there, is that what you need to hear?)

Peace,
Gregg
