I would never have guessed in a million years that The Rock would become a movie star, even a half respectable one as proposed by Disney. But then, I did love Rowdy Roddy Piper in They Live.
The Rock is such a big fat joke. His career is in the shitter.
That the original two films were able to get Ray Milland, Bette Davis and Christopher Lee says a lot about live action Disney these days.
Is that Ciaran Hinds as the bad guy? At least he looks like he’s having fun. Yeah, this looks like a time-waster.
The Rock is a likeable actor and this doesn’t look like an awful thing to take the grandkids to.
I had always expected to hate The Rock and made a point of avoiding anything he was in (until work dictated otherwise). Surprisingly, I’ve actually liked him in everything I’ve seen so far, even when the movies themselves (SOUTHLAND TALES, BE COOL) were horrible. This one, however, I will be sure to miss.
I don’t get The Rock hate. He’s been great in just about everything I’ve seen him in. The guy oozes charisma. He’s got as good if not better action hero chops as either Stallone or Schwarzenegger.
Anyone who professes to hate The Rock has not seen THE RUNDOWN. Pure bliss, and it should have been his action start coming out party. The guy could be as big as Will Smith, but this is not the way.
I’m surprised there haven’t been any posts saying how this movie is emblematic of everything that’s wrong with kid’s movies today. Because it is.
Is this the first time a PG Disney movie uses the word “pimp”?
“Unfazed person (or humanoid) being hit by car, which is totaled” is the new “walking away from an explosion and not looking back.”
Plus, the “funny” lines aren’t. Blah.
Peter Berg really hit the right spot with the Rundown. The fact that he went for a specific type of cartoonish action- not Transformer 2-esque, but instead he treated the Rock like he was a Paul Bunyan type who could be tossed around like a concrete smashing rag doll. I would take a Rundown sequel if they stuck to the ethos of the original. Just a fun movie.
At the moment, you’ll have a feeling of proud. The articles by China’s manufacturers are not only in a good quality, but also in a great many of quantity, and in a very lower price. For example, a same suit Made in China, might marked five to ten dollars that would cost one hundred dollars that made in Western countries. Many people couldn’t afford for it but Chinese goods are most popular now than ever before.The popularation of Chinese objcets is almost covered the market place all over the world, including the European and American markets.
