Wow Pierce won`t have to worry about getting work goodbye James Bond.
It was a great movie in an industry of so-called "blockbuster" movies that stink. The acting was superb,the ending just right,and only 3 main characters pulled it off! I`d love to see a sequel. I wonder about Danny`s wife and her love and knowledge of guns?
The story had potential, the film however should never have been released. Sure Pierce Brosnan did some fine acting, but that is only a small portion. What comedy it had, was ruined by the rest of the movie.
This is a witty and hilarious movie with Bronson showing his true talent for the first time. James Bond fans--step aside, this is not one of the gadget-filled, macho, 007 flicks. It`s well directed, well written and the acting deserves many accolades. Bravo!
best for a change
This movie is SSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO BBBBBBBOOOOOORRRRIIIINNNNGGGGG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!I bet my little sisters movie dora is BETTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This movie took days off my life. It was so BORING!!! Even the naked scenes were tacky.
It was a good movie but no where near a James Bond great.
Funny, clever and touching. I love the dark Brosnan mixed with nice guy Kinar.
Brosnan was awesome in this but the script and direction leave you feeling like there`s something missing. Too bad because with a good script this could`ve been a really good film.
bbbbbboooooooorrrrrrrrring!!! too long...lagged...hummm, bbbbbbbbbboooooooorrrrrring...no really...worth $1.50 at the cheap seats if you have nothing else better to do. I did laugh... at the people that started to use their cell phones in front of me to text their friends to not see this movie!
Still trying to decide if I loved it or hated it...? Very quirky, slow-developing, meandering plot. A real slice of our amoral society, where the bad guys are loveable and the good guys are oh-so fallible. Excellent acting by Brosnan - great to see another side of his abilities. Only see it if you can apreciate the off-beat...
this was an awesome film. My friend and I laughed out loud for a good many parts of the movie. It was incredible seeing Pierce Brosnan as the total antithesis of anything I`ve seen him perform in before. Very fun. But adult audiences only, please.
Excellent movie, interesting story - Pierce Brosnan is a really talented guy.
Not a great movie, but a very good one.
I liked this movie for one thing: original! I really liked it!
An ok movie funny at times and has some long boring moments.
THIS MOVIE WAS A TOTAL WASTE OF TIME, PEARCE MUST HAVE BEEN DESPERATE OR TOTALLY BORED TO HAVE MADE THIS, HE REALLY LOWERED HIMSELF FROM THE BOND FILMS.
What a stupid movie. It was not even funny. What does it say about our society to think that a normal person who has no previous criminal history that is told about in the storyline, would help a hitman kill someone to save the hitman`s life. Does our society have any morals left?
This was a very dark and funny story presented by two amazing actors. If you like quirky, surprising and definitely irreverant, this movie is for you.
Quirky & funny. It lagged in some spots but was a decent movie for a lazy Saturday afternoon.
Had some funny moments, but generall had not defined plot. Brief nudity and 4 letter words appear to have been added for shock value & rating.
A very funny and entertaining movie. Pierce Brosnan and Greg Kinnear have great chemistry together on screen but it`s Brosnan who steals this film as this is his best performance to date playing a burned out hitman. I highly recommend you see this movie.
Well done - great for an afternoon of laughter....good movie to see without the kids.....
this movie should have been rated R to much profanity and unnecessary sex scenes
Two bad actors in a boring movie.
This has got to be the worst screenplay of the year. Totally inane dialogue and pathetic performances. Don`t waste your time or money.
it is so short
"Disappointing - alot of unnecessary profanity and heavy sex scenes. It would have been fine without these "X" rated scenes. Unfortunately we went with our young teenagers and were not prepared for the scenes that they saw and heard. A movie DOES NOT need swearing and sex to be a good or interesting movie!" It was a great movie, and if you believe 13 and 14 year olds cant handle it, DONT GO TO 14A MOVIES
Funny, original and sweet. Not to long and over involved like so many movies lately. Great performances by Greg Kineer and Pierce Brosnan.
Did not enjoy it, not only was it a waste of $10 but two hours of my life.
Surprisingly good. Great performance by Brosnan. Excellent entertainment. Haven`t said that for a while about a movie. 5 stars. Not resigning him for next Bond movie will turn out to be a HUGE mistake.
This movie was great, a refreshing change. A movie for mature people, who want a witty comedy.
Thoroughly enjoyed this movie, lots of laughs, certainly a different venue for Pierce Brosnan, and he came out smelling like a rose. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a change of pace from the run of the mill action movies.
sidesteppingly funny amsuing and predictable yet unexpected
i was very surprized i didnt think the movie was gonna be that funny..but it`s the best movie ive seen in a while
I was totaly shocked! Funnier than i imagined! Great film!
I was pleasantly surprised at how good an actor Pierce Brosnan is in this one . I wouldn`t call it a thriller , but more of a black comedy .Enjoyed it a lot .
Pierce Brosnan is fantastic in this film, from crying to humour to evil, he knocks it out of the park.It is a quirky little story, well acted, well written, and different from your usual Hollywood crap, definitely worth checking out if you are in the mood for something just a little different for a change. Highly recommended from this film buff.
I thought it was excellent. I hadn`t laughed like that at the movies in a long time. Everyone should go out and see it. It`s about two guys who meet and they don`t realize it at first but they need each other`s help to move on in life. Go to see it, you won`t regret it!
Smart, funny movie. Great acting.
Great, humorous and hugely entertaining with lots of quirks. Pierce Brosnan was exceptional, showing his diverse acting talent.
Disappointing - alot of unnecessary profanity and heavy sex scenes. It would have been fine without these "X" rated scenes. Unfortunately we went with our young teenagers and were not prepared for the scenes that they saw and heard. A movie DOES NOT need swearing and sex to be a good or interesting movie!
A rather immoral affaire,it shocks initially and then bores you to death!
I had low low low expectations for this movie going in. As soon as I sat in the seat I was laughing my face off. Its got just enough seriousness to keep it tasteful and going over the edge into some over the top in your face comedy that is sooooo not this movie! Very well done.
i had high expectations going to this movie; unfortunately it didn`t keep me on the edge on my seat. 2*
THE MATADOR IS ONE OF THE BEST FILMS OF THE YEAR!!! IT`S SMART, FUNNY, SEXY & ORIGINAL!!!
I was laughing so hard. It was so funny that every time Julian made a metaphor, it had something to do with prostitutes. For example: "I look like a Bangkok hooker on a Sunday morning, after the Navy`s left town."
Hard to believe this was the same guy who played Bond and Remington Steele!
