    It was my first time for both. I had seen bits-and-pieces over the years while flipping channels but never gave it much thought. Tuesday night, just before bed I happened to catch the first 10 minutes of part 1 and got hooked. DVR'd them, watched part 1 Wednesday night & part 2 last night.

    Much better than I had expected.

    You had the luxury of watching them consecutively. When they were in the theater there was at least a 6 month wait between the 2. I remember being thrown by the startling change of pace in KB2. It lessened after repeated viewings, but did you experience any of that?

    I definitely noticed a difference in pacing and feel of 2. P1 was more action, less talk ('less' is relative, we're talking about QT here'), P2 was just the opposite, more talk, less action. The music was a bit different between the 2. P2 seemed to pick up pace w/ the showdown between Ellie & 'The Bride'. I was anticipating a bit more of a fight between 'Bill' & 'The Bride' but it was pretty much over before it even got started.

    BTW - my 1,000th post!

    I would just say I was underwhelmed with the direction this movie took, which stinks because it looked great for a low budget film and I loved the atmosphere.









    Meh, I understand that it's that type of movie but rinse repeat martial arts fights where every bad guy is a karate master are just not my cup of tea. It was still very impressive for how low a budget it had.





    Like every Wiseman film I can remember seeing, being stylistically great with a number of A-list actors can only overcome a mediocre script for so long. Fortunately for him, he doesn't care and he's still married to Kate Beckinsale.

    hurm...Lags...gonna have to disagree with you on Tall Man. But that is what makes it so good. It does do a Chinese fire drill tonally and you either buy in or you don't. Me...I dug it.



    So, I REALLY wanted to see this. And Kingsqueen kept asking me what I thought. Still do not know. Entertaining as hell, and the characters were all...believable. But the level of stupidity and entitlement was sooooooo overwhelming. Nobody had ANY remorse except for the Rock's character who was almost made out to be comic relief because he had remorse. I DIDN'T NOT LIKE the movie...good performances all around. Just soul-less folks who could go from freaking out over poorly executed plans to making the best of dismembering and lime-ing their remains. The thing that really pulls the rug out...they show mug shots/outcomes of the real players involved in this really ****ed up scenario. And the reality of the heinous nature of the crimes kind of makes you feel guilty for having any positive feelings about the 2 + hours you just spent. I get a lot of the complaints...as dumb as the guys were there was a magic level of misogny reserved for the women.

    The Rock/Mark Wahlberg...as per usual, thrived with the good direction. Surprises...Tony Shaloub and Ed Harris. Well, is it really a surprise that they classed up the joint? Answer:NO.

    So...if you can watch a morally ambiguous movie and laugh at the base nature of humanity, you should see this.

    EDIT: I get the comparisons to a Coen Brothers movie. But it isn't subtle enough.

    But when you consider that it's a Michael Bay film, it's a huge step in the right direction for him.
