I was so ready to see this movie and I was not disappointed. Denzel and Ryan were a good match up. The combination of acting from them brought the movie out. Of course, being a big baby I was sad watching a few of the scenes. I don't want to give a way much. So go watch this movie. You will not regret it!
This is one of those movies that grabs the audience and keeps them hypnotically suspended for the duration. It's filled with near non-stop action and packed with 'A' list stars worthy of this intricate and compelling screenplay. It's the rare imagination that would doubt the chemistry of a cast that includes Washington and Reynolds, although apparently there are at least one or two critics out there who state this, most likely just to grab some attention for themselves. You simply can't go wrong here. It's worth every cent of today's high ticket prices. The story is familiar but fresh. The action as good as any. See this movie but leave the little guys home because it's too intense for kids. Otherwise, count on one entertaining film. You won't be disappointed.
One wild action packed movie......If you love action, car chases and Dezel at his badest best you will love this movie. Ryan Reynolds is a cutie too who plays well against Denzel. The ending is not what I wanted but the movie is just awesome...you must go and see it....
Non-stop action, well acted and straightforward. A little predictable and not too much character development. Repeated story about agent gone rogue because of agency bureaucracy. All that said, good mindless entertainment. I would tag this one as a rental.
Actors were good, plot was predictable, almost from the beginning you can predict who are the bad guys disgused as good guys and who dies at the end. Shaky cam is annoying, seems like an excuse for not choreographing action scenes.
