Another action flick from Gerard Butler. Movie is entertaining, but far from believable. This story has been told many times before. Hero faces great odds to get home. This has been in westerns, cop movies and war movies. The twist here is that it is an American in the Middle East. The action is fine while the story is predictable. Final thought: Pretty average movie.
Why I watched this one? Huge James Caan fan. This is one of his earliest starring roles. Plus, you get a young Robert Duvall. This is the first of many times that Duvall and Caan made together. Also....there is a MASH connection as Duvall starred in the movie version and if you pay attention, you will see a young Mike Farrell, who played in the television show.
What is this one about? Desperate to land a man on the moon…
I have watched Predator many many times. I have seen it in theaters. I have seen it on VHS. I have seen it on laserdisc. I have seen it on DVD. I have seen it on Blu-Ray. I now have seen it in 3D...damn I sound like Dr. Seuss.
As for the movie....this is one of the greatest action movies ever...right there with the original Die Hard movie! Arnold Schwarzenegger and his buddies go into the jungle for a rescue…
Based on the true story of Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio). Movie depicts his rise and fall in the powerful world of Wall Street. Be prepared to go one one crazy and mind boggling ride. The life of Jordan is filled with drugs, crime, sex and most importantly greed. He makes Michael Douglas' Gordon Gekko from Wall Street look like a saint.
The performances in this movie are very impressive. DiCaprio's performance will be remembered for a very long time...I used…
