Netflix is stepping up their game. Using that Batman guy and an X-Wing pilot...
Loved it until about the half way point of the movie, then I just felt like it took a turn to the stupid.
Watched it last night. Started good and just blahhhhhh after that. We were let down by this
Action-wise it was fair. I really did enjoy the complexities of the relationships between the guys, that really represented the relationships with guys who serve together.
It could have been better if Netflix turned it into a series with about eight or 10 episodes.
That formula works really well. Your able to give a little more attention to small stuff. But I'm sure it would cost a lot more with the big names.
The amazon series Jack Ryan is great at the little things.
I would have killed all the security coming in (only a few more), bound and tied the fam, taken ALL the money out, stashed it in the jungle a few clicks away, and come back for it later. Can't figure out why they did not do that. OR if they had contact with their source, buy a C3 (those things are ALL OVER South America) .
I guess they needed the "master planner" to lose his tactical finesse for the sake of the drama. It reminded me of a lot of the phenomenally stupid things the cast on "Walking Dead" did.
TWD would be very boring if it were centered around how I’d survive it. No drama. Certainly no dudes kissing.
I’d be to the coast by season 2. Probably an inlet river. Plenty of food. Maybe find a ship to head out to sea, coming in only to pillage supplies. Might even have a plank.
No kidding though, I knew some guys who boated all the way down the amazon (some rapids they had to carry around, of course) and then sailed up the Brazilian coast to the West Indies, Jamaica, and on into Key West. Missionary kids with Wycliffe Bible Translators had some of the COOLEST adventures! This was two teenagers, a 18 and a 17 year old, and a young adult. A bunch of them into Mt climbing. Chimborazo was 22,000 feet and I knew four guys who climbed it by the time they were 15. Then, about 7 families went on furlough together, but the teens age 15 and up all flew into Panama, bought bikes (motorcycles), and went with a guy named Ernie Rich (who I lived with in Colombia), on a motorcycle ride thru central America up to Dallas. Because they bought the bikes duty free, they sold them used for more than they had bought them new.
I would hear these stories and think, "man! I though *I* was adventurous!" I envied these kids. Still do in lots of ways. They grew up to be independent, strong and real survivors, most of em.
I was disappointed but not surprised at all. Pretty cliche all the way around. Could have been great.
Just started it. It’s gonna be hard to live up to the first song played.
What a gyp...
I was so excited for this, and with that much talent there is no excuse for such a stink pickle.
It felt like a bad 80’s television show...
Have yall seen "mine"? Sucked so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so so bad.
I haven't finished triple frontier yet.
I thought the same, with that cast.. from a lot of their previous roles... could have been KILLER! Maybe it's because we both served, that it was a let down lol.
I wonder, if it were real life.. How do you get a dead body back to the states, and get him buried and no one asks questions with a hole in the melon?
I didn t watch it. It just looked too corney.
A lot of the netflix movies have sucked, but the shows, i like pretty good.
Just so we’re all clear, if we ever get into some shit and I get killed burn my body and use it for a distraction. I’m dead anyway I dont give a shit.
If we go as far as to cook you, im atleast taking something to snack on for the hike ahead.
Yep...I fast fwded thru the end of it. Too much Hollywood and too little reality.
I finished watching it this morning and it was pretty lame.
Yeah I would’ve done the extract wayyyyy different. They owned the house after taking down the security. Call the air asset connection for 2-3 helos...hell BUY them if necessary.
And also, anyone notice that Oscar Isaac’s plate carrier didn’t ever have a plate in it? At the beginning, when he has nothing strapped to it but a radio..
Little dumb stuff like that...
Like when they are clearing the house, and the camera tracks Ben Affleck, and then pans over to Oscar Isaac, and I was like “Wait, you already cleared that part... Oh you are just trying to look cool for the camera...”
At which point I wanted to rip out my eyes like Oedipus Rex...
Also the acting was bad.
Can you imagine the boodle that was in that house? 60 mil in one and a half walls, and the whole house was that way?
Yeah. I would have killed security, Kept the fam nice and cozy and let the kids watch Netflix cartoons out in the guard shack. Feed mama whatever she wants out there, and tear out every wall in the place. One watching the fam (with a ski mask on) and 4 tearing out sheetrock, should not take more than a 3 days, even for a mansion.
Watched it the other night. Mildly entertaining at best.
