Alright, so the previews don't look too bad, but there's a lot that they do wrong. First, they don't even include everything you see in the previews, case in point is the part where he's outnumbered in the parking garage and he asks first to take off his coat. You don't see that in the movie...that is unless it's at the beginning, because i may have missed that part (came in a few minutes late, someone correct me if i am wrong). Anyways, the biggest problem i had with the movie is that the two biggest rivals whom you assume will be some good fights at the end between the driver and them (i'm talking about the chick and the main bad guy) turn out to pitifully do nothing. The fight with the girl lasted for 20 seconds and he wiped the floor with her and don't even get me started on the main bad guy whom opened up his first scene with him taking on like 6 trained opponents...yet you see him fight like a sissy. The ending fight on the plane i thought was stupid, not only for the fact that he didn't fight back, but just the scenario. There was also a lot of poorly thought out stunts, one being the car flying from building to building but more importantly one of the worst and impossible things i've seen in a movie is when he clips the bomb on the bottem of his car off of it by going off a ramp, flipping and using a crane to knock it off...it was just goddamn riddiculous. The movie still has some of it's merits, some decent action and a hot chick (boy was she smoking), it still lacks. The previews made it look pretty good, but it didn't justify and wasn't nearly as good as the first one...hell, even the chase scene was highly uneventful. For those who at least want to know what the story is about. The driver (you know who i am talking about, i forget his name at the moment, it's late) takes a job driving this kid around for a week as a favor, him and his family kinda grow on him, the kid is the son of a politician, some people kidnap the kid, the drivers vows to get him back, it turns out it wasn't just a normal ransom, but rather the bad guys injected the kid with this virus which they intend for him to spread to his father and the rest of the politicians (and perhaps the world). Only the bad guy has the cure and is selling it to the highest bidder and well, you know what's supposed to happen next. Anyways, i was disappointed.

Oh yeah, also watched this film called Overnight documenting the success of Troy Duffy, the guy who wrote and directed the Boondock Saints and boy, what an asshole. He got was he deserved. I kinda feel bad for his bandmates, but you know, if you got a big ego, it's going to squash you at one point or another. It's a pretty good watch, even perhaps better than the actual film itself. Everyone should check it out.

Hmmm...anything else? I also watched that Frankenstein movie with Parker Posey...and it sucked. Don't bother. That's about it.
