a great action-adventure flick
I took this movie home the other day not really expecting to see much
of a movie but I was like what the hell, I'll give it a try and was
This movie didn't have the most original plot. It was just a father
trying to get his kidnapped son back. Tyrese Gibson played the father
who would very much rather forget his past and jail time so he set a
good example for his kid. I thought Gibson did a very good job as he
teamed up with the very attractive actress Meagan Good. Also in the
movie was Larenz Tate. Tate did not impress me. It seemed like he just
re-enacted his role in Crash.
Your not going to see a masterpiece after watching this film. Your not
going to get blown away by the acting even though it was above average.
They're some hard-nosed scenes such as when I guy gets his armed
chopped off for not paying back the money. But the movie seemed to have
heart and I believe it was directed very well. Such scene is when
Gibson's character is running than switches to first person as the
director, Vondie Curtis-Hall, has the camera shaking constantly to give
it a more dramatic feel.
The relationship between Good and Gibson's character grew way to fast
but still was par. There are some moments that are far fetched but the
movie was still very entertaining and intense and I believe it gets a
7.5 rating (rounded to a 8).
Acting 7, editing 6, directing 8, plot 6.
