the plot and story were a messy, however it was still entertaining nonetheless.
Benicio del Toro is supposed to sound like a Mexican, but without a doubt he sounds like an American Indian. I live in northern Alberta, and I know what a native sounds like.
enjoyed this high-octane movie. Good performances, especially Salma Hayak
While about 30 mins too long, I found the movie entertaining and fun.
Love Lively with two Gorgeous MEN OMG yA GIRL :) Great Cast So amazingly talented great story, applause to all-the point of movies is to get away for two hours object achieved ...
really good movie, loved it, good actors
great movie with good actors.
loved this movie, i was intrigued the whole time watching the movie. really enjoyed the actors they played into their roles very well.
amazing from start to finish
good action and very violent...very gory
this movie was better than i expected, dragged there by my boyfriend. not bad at all.
okay but not great!
very predictable, good idea for storyline but the characters were very typical.
the movie lacked flow and story continuity. at times essential moments were skipped over and plot holes were often left gaping. rather than take the time to deepen the plot and character personalities, the film frequently cut to the next scene with nary an explanation for the last.
predictable and under-developed. the director clearly thought we would enjoy miss lively purely for her own sake ("oh, look how sexual and dangerous she is!"). this was a miscalculation. even lively's best uma thurman impression as the the narrator couldn't save this film. stylish and gritty, the film-work itself was enjoyable but the storyline and the acting were extremely weak.
a little bit too predictable and sappy ending.
good action, but story line was a little questionable.
expected so much from the trailers...
i would give this 3.5 stars, as i didn't think it was that bad, but in reality, it was just an average thriller and action flick. though i have to admit that i enjoyed salma hayek and benicio del toro's roles - they played off of each well and brought good substance to their roles. i didn't really care for blake lively's character, and thought that the two male leads were expected and just ok. nevertheless, i liked this movie simply for what it set out to be: a thriller/action combo made largely of fluff.
commercial didnt match movie at all. beautiful cinematography and people, no real action except one scene, could have been much more enthralling, it was slow, no chemistry between female lead and male leads
loved the whole movie - great action from start to finish.
i thought it was going to be more gory than it was. i was glad too see it didn't go overboard, i think some spots were very realistic and i really liked it, something different for a change.
some excellent twists and some amazing performances. benicio del torro is oscar worthy. could've turned unnecessarily graphic in the wrong directors hands. very entertaining.
movie was good with a different twist at the end
salma hayek was her campy best, as for the others...
this mega-splatter fest tale of 3 amoral grow-oppers is defininatly not for me.stone(jfk,platoon)has now slipped into mediocrity and irrelevancy.
dissappointed, not believable.
this movie was entertaining although a bit juvinile. i was under the impression that it was a bit more hard core. some really great actors such as benicio and salma, however not a huge fan of blake lively. if you are not expecting too much i think you will enjoy the film.
oliver stone typically tends to be a hit or miss director at the best of times, but unfortunately this is very much a latter entry amongst his productions to date. the three leads are awkward and lack compelling passion between the three of them as lovers, travolta is ridiculous and unconvincing as a federal narcotics officer, salma hayek looks disinterested and dour as the lead female drug queen, and even benicio del toro in a rousing turn as the villain (one of the film's few bright spots) cannot save this trainwreck. a mess of a screenplay is only intensified by the aforementioned uninspired acting and convoluted storyline. one should pass on this if they can.
i thought this movie would be better. kind of disappointing for a movie from oliver stone.
great story line, well directed and acted... i loved the first ending more then the second ending but overall i reccomend this movie as a good date movie. love story for the woman and action for the men
very gruesome in many scenes but not too bad of a story line.
interesting and fast paced story line, yet so serene and relaxing at times in the movie.
what a horrible movie. from blake lively's pathetic character, to the extremely unrealistic love triangle, i was actually rooting for the "bad guys" - in this case, the mexican cartel. the only two actors i could stand were salma hayek and benicio del toro. don't waste your time or money.
horrible garbage! stay away from this monster.
it was amazing. it had the fighting the sex and everything
movie doesn't come close to the book. the book is fantastic, read it first, and the prequel "kings of cool" too and you would understand characters better. without reading the book main characters of the movie seem flat as a wallpaper with exception of lado and dennis, who are played by actors too famous for these roles and who intentionally or not pull all the attention and throw the movie off balance.
is somebody saying that is better to go to see the amazing spiderman?what tha f...ck is a joke the amazing spiderman suck big.big.big time you it was painful to me to see how my money was a big waste and i wacht it in imax 3d so was like 20 box
it is a oliver stone film!!!!!!!!!!!
very disappointed being that it was a martin scorcese film. i expected some quality like the departed or casino. this movie was pure crap. save your money.
decent movie a renter at best or a tuesday movie and there`s nothing else playing and all you want is popcorn and a drink.
interesting attempt to say something meaningful about the duality of the "war on drugs" but ends up selling itself short as a slicked up piece of hollywood movie-making instead of being the mass messenger it should have been. acting is good with hayek being best of the bunch. the sympathetic young leads were just too one-dimensional and stayed that way: no character exposition at all. that said, nice cinematography when not showing severed heads rolling around. save your $ and see it on netflix....
the whole family enjoyed it.
brutal... sexy... funny... shocking... ruthless... heartless... violent... graphic... disgusting... heartache... surprises... well... go see it if you want. i enjoyed it a lot. worth the see (5 stars)
excellent 'drug' story, brutal, violent, graphic, 'what a lifestyle living it up drugs and rraawwwrrr sex', subdued humour, seems all ideal until big nasty powerful thugs move in, absolutely ruthless, yet contrasts heartlessness and heartache weaknesses... worth the see... 5 out of 5 stars. (i rarely rate movies that high)
amazing movie, great acting, and the story was great with many subliminal themes and messages. worth seeing it, i may even go see it again. definitely recommend it.
this movie is so good and entertaining
