    I put in this trailer for those who want to watch it but my suggestion is don’t watch it if you like the sound of it from my intentionally short review. I didn’t see trailer before the movie and I’m glad cause there’s a couple of funny scenes that I’m not sure I would of enjoyed as much while watching movie had I seen them on the trailer.



    Couldn’t find a thread for this. Watched it tonight and really enjoyed it. Reminded me a bit like hardcore Henry in some ways, bit of Groundhog Day and edge of tomorrow.

    Starts off with a man living the same day over and over again. And he’s being attacked and doesn’t know why or what’s going on. It’s really great fun at times and while the theme isn’t new and you’ve probably seen parts of it in different movies before , I think it retains a lot of heart and fun at the core. Runtime is a trim 100 minutes so it’s tidy movie that doesn’t drag.

    Hope it does well as I love these sort of movies that you don’t really know much about , switch on and can just get the popcorn and enjoy.

    Frank Grillo is in some shape for 55

    Could be taking a few supplements

    That looks like a cross between Groundhog Day and Edge of Tomorrow.

    Looks like great craic though.

    That dude is 55? Fair play!

    Finally, a strong looking recent Film

    This definitely looks like it's worth a look

    Watched it few nights ago. It's a fun film. Won't blow you away, but satisfying.

    Definitely a fun film, but it's actually not quite as silly as the title suggests - it is often very over the top but there's good heart to it as well and there's a bit of meaning to the plot. Really solid watch.

    Just finished it. Very enjoyable. Love me a time loop film.

    Only ever seen Grillo in one or two passable b movies but he did well here. Good comedic timing and a likeable fella. Never gonna win an oscar but so what.

    Amazing shape for even someone 10 years younger. 55 ! Hope he gets some good roles on the back of this.

    7/10

    I though I would enjoy this more than I did. There is not much of an story here outside of the time loop idea we have seen before. We have action but with such a jaded old tough guy redemptive trope we have seen 1000 times before. I didn't expect much but outside of the premise there is nearly no story.

    Some good action sequences though. There are also some very good supporting actors in this like Gibson, Yeoh and Watts but they don't get much to work with.

    6/10

    It’s an alright action movie and Grillo has a great presence however there is always something just missing from the films he is the lead in that I just can’t put my finger on.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,098 ✭✭✭ Tefral


    I liked it.

    (and I know the type of movies that we're dealing with here) but it's depth and finesse

    with the amount of movies that he gets through in any given year it's hardly a surprise really - it's always very much a bang-one-take-in-the-can type affair

    At the very best c class movies, only truly memorable thing he's been a lead in was kingdom and it was mostly tucker who carried that show with Jonas and the guy who played Ryan being way more impactful.
    He's not a bad actor as much as not a great one, with pretty much as ya said, one shot moving on movies.
