Mads Mikkelsen had me interested because he was awesome in King Arthur. But this was beneath him.


It's the same director who did The Incredible Hulk (Louis Leterrier) and I think he's a young kid who doesn't really know what he's doing. He almost reminds me of Michael Bay a little bit in that he seems to think that "cool" CGI creatures jumping around are what makes a movie good. You would think a Frenchie would have more subtle taste. Yet for some reason everyone still seems to like The Incredible Hulk. I thought it was garbage (speaking of disappointing movies). Even Ed Norton and Liv Tyler couldn't save that trash. I actually rather like the 2003 HULK, somewhat flawed though it may be. I'm definitely in the minority on that one, but whatevs..

Each to their own, the thing about the Fishburne part was that if they had gone with the simple story arc of him being what he appeared to be - a cool, mysterious survivor evading and sabotaging the Preds hunting ground - then it would have been great because the film picked up for me when he came into it, like when Jack Nicholson's character appeared in Easy Rider. As it is they went somewhere else with Fishburne's character that was just boring really and a huge chance missed.


I honestly need to watch Predators again to see what you're talking about... it's been a while. I would enjoy watching it again..

I thought Fishburne was a bit out of place in Predators. For one thing he looked a bit over weight & unfit to play someone who had been hiding from the predators for years.

The only reason he was in the film was that the director & Fishburne were pals having done a previous film (Armoured) together.

I somewhat agree there but in fairness he has been getting bigger since the first Matrix film. I don't mean that as a detriment to him, his weight is none of my business but even when doing CSI as Langston it's strange to see him like that when, like I said, he had a trim build in the the first Matrix. Before that I remember he was quite a skinny guy.

Character-wise in Predators could have been handled a bit better- like I said it was a bit strange to set his image up as a survivalist who has all this equipment and tech and then go downhill from there. If he was not meant to be an important character then they should have just left it out entirely. Because I don't remember that advancing the story or the direction any; once they leave him it's like - back to square one and a bit underwhelming.

Recently saw "Contagion." I started off interested but quickly found the film boring. Problem: it was done on a much more intellectual than visual level (as opposed to, say, "Outbreak" or even "Andromeda Strain"), therefore it didn't have the visceral impact previous films did. The characterizations were flimsy...this probably could've been better had the film been done (I can't believe I'm gonna say it) in that "found footage" / Blair Witch style.

Too many to name...but off the top of my head:

Predators - Fishburne was wasted. He was the main reason I picked this up in the first place.

Hitman - a thorough waste of time. Didn't live up to the video games.

Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps - was looking forward to this for years. What a let-down. Weak plot and subpar acting all-around, even on the part of Douglas, (one of my favourite actors, BTW).

you have a point because i was thinking that same thing after watching the film over and over. I was suprised to see him but like you said he didnt seem fit for a guy that been there for years and was over weight. Imo it served no purpose of putting him in that movie. I did hear that they wanted arnold to play a cameo but he said no so im guessing thats why they put fishbourne in it.

Even though I enjoyed it and still thought it was a good movie, I say The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. I'm not one of the people that says The Hobbit trilogy is pure dog turd, but compared to what is, IMO, the best trilogy of all-time and my favorite movies of all-time, ya, it was gonna be a bummer.

Matrix Revolutions falls into the same boat as above: still think it was a good movie, beautiful effects, loved the score especially Neodammerung in the final fight between Smith and Neo, and I applaud the Wachowskis in that they completed their vision of a sci-fi action philosophizer trilogy, but it was a letdown. It's been said a million times, though.

I've talked about Sin City: A Dame to Kill For on another board before. I'll throw it in the conversation.

One that I saw at the beginning of this thread is AvP. Watched the Predator movies since I was a kid. Watched the Alien movies since I was a teen. Their both coming together for a smackdown unlike what any action movie has put on the silver screen before, and...meh.

Iíve only seen the first Hobbit film and I was so sorely disappointed that Iíll orobably never see the sequels. The first film had more padding than a teenage girls bra.

Implying that's very disappointing means you had some expectations for it.
