Most people love to hate a movie based on its comic book adaptation. With its story of a Marine, Mark Whalberg, who goes to a European army, to take the fight against a super villain, Magneto. I personally love comic books so I thought this movie was very good. As the name implies, the movie focuses on the battles and battles in general of the movie. I was surprised to see that there was a lot of fighting scenes but it wasn't all fighting. I was a little disappointed that the story was not as strong as I wanted it to be. I found it hard to get involved in the movie. I think the action scenes were well done but the story was very weak. It was just a little bit too weak. The movie was entertaining but the story was a little weak. If the story was strong then this movie would have been a 9 but with weak action scenes the movie would have been a 7 or 8. It was very disappointing to see the movie being so weak. The story was not strong enough to pull you into the movie and not enough to give you a strong desire to see this movie. I think that the story was weak. It is probably the best movie based on a comic book movie of all time. I don't think it was a 7 or 8 on my rating. It was a 7 or 8.

One of the movies that made a mark on me during the 70s was Robert Altman's "A Night at the Roxbury" with Ralph Richardson. With great cinematography, the movie presents the punk movement in a visceral manner. It's an important piece of history, and Altman's film is probably the best film about the punk movement. Altman also made an important historical film, "Night Moves," with Charles Durning, "Crackerjack," with Richard Benjamin, and "America, I Love You" with Peter Sellers. Although "Night Moves" is an important work in film history, Altman's "Crackerjack" is more of an entertaining flick. The best performance in this film is of Michael Wincott as Johnny Gage, the inspiration for the movie's name. Wincott was simply too good in this role. The story revolves around a group of San Francisco punk-rockers who are all being hunted by the government. On their way to a concert, they stop at a gas station in San Francisco to spend the night, which is also where their car is being followed. All the occupants of the car start getting picked off, and the punk-rockers begin to wonder if they are being followed. The film is quite interesting because the whole story of the punk-rockers is fascinating. Altman gets to show the reality of the punk-rockers' lifestyle and the real world they live in. Although it's all fiction, Altman does a fantastic job of making the entire punk-rock movement seem real. The majority of the punk-rockers do have some kind of personality. They seem to have a lot of energy and are very smart, but they have a problem with drugs, and it's really hard to like them. There's also a lot of sexual-orientation and even crime in the movie. There are a lot of morals about that kind of lifestyle in the movie, but you don't have to be into that kind of lifestyle to enjoy the movie. The best part of the movie is the great cinematography. The music is great, and I would put it in the same category as "The Doors" and "Crackerjack." The soundtrack also was great, especially the song "Here Comes the Sun." A good movie for a family or a night at the movies.

SGT. Will Gardner, a young gun who arrives in France with the intent of joining the French Army, is recruited by Colonel Lomat (Pierre Bernard, aptly played by Marc Caro) to train the young lads who will become future fighters. With this mission in mind, the boys are forced to train under an unpleasant, brutish and very brutal commandant, Private Baudouin (Antoine Rouly, playfully comedic as always) who encourages his soldiers to humiliate, torture, torture, torture their enemies. Gardner's role is, to say the least, one of the most difficult in the movie, yet he manages to save the day by exploiting the attention he gets as a tough, uncouth, no-nonsense American. His job is not only to train the boys but also to keep them as underlings, and to teach them discipline and to find the "tricks" to succeed at their new "class". After the boys are fully trained, Gardner decides to find and rescue the little girl they saved in the first place and then set the story in motion. The movie is full of events which will make you laugh, cry and sometimes even smile at the same time. It's not a movie for everyone, but if you can bear it and it gets your heart racing, you will enjoy this movie a lot. One of the best action films ever made!

This movie shows one of the early wars of Vietnam. You know the drill - infantry platoon begins to fight with tanks - but it's not a flop. In fact, it's one of the best-made war movies you'll ever see. The plot is pretty simple: It's war time, and a platoon of American infantry is about to be shipped off to Vietnam for combat. But it's not all so simple. Along the way, the platoon meets up with some Vietnamese who are willing to fight for their country. And, they have a pretty cool ability to see into the future - they can tell when a tank will arrive and when it won't. There are also many funny scenes, as well as a bit of romance. And the action is great. The fight between the US infantry and a small number of tanks is pretty good, and the tank battle at the end is really awesome. But, some of the scenes aren't really as great. There are a few scenes where there's no story going on, or where the actors are just reading their lines. And, they're not all that funny. But, the special effects are awesome. The tank and the machine gun in the tank battle are some of the coolest effects ever. The tank is a blast to watch, the machine gun is awesome, and the aerial shots are cool. There's a great music score by Tangerine Dream that fits the movie perfectly. But, the worst thing about this movie is the dialogue. At some points in the movie, the dialogue becomes annoying and some of the lines are just so-so. But, this isn't a bad movie. It's a great war movie that has some flaws. But, it's worth the watch.

This is one of my favorite movies, I think. Its about an infantryman in a battle and he tells his story and makes a speech to the troops. Its pretty good story, I liked it. It reminds me of "Raging Bull". Its very sad story about a man trying to live and take his baby and then he die. Its a great movie. I like that movie more than this one, I liked this one better. It is better than "Raging Bull". I think that movie is very good.

Seen a few war movies, but have not seen this until now. Didn't know what to expect, but it was an interesting movie. It was hard to follow what was happening in the story and at times the movie just went on too long. But I have to say it was a good movie with some good acting and interesting characters. Worth watching, it will be good to re-watch. Good job to all who worked on this movie.

This is the first American war movie I've ever seen that doesn't just highlight the military on a day-to-day basis. It also deals with some of the darker aspects of war. The characters are well-written and you feel sorry for them. Not that they're the only ones in the film, but they have a few good moments, especially the two boys that act as the film's main antagonists. I also like how the film does not cover the ugly side of war, like the human bodies piling up and the drugs that make it even worse. I was particularly impressed with how the film avoids being too depressing. I found myself watching it and not really noticing that it was depressing. I can't wait to see more from John Sayles.

John Wayne was always in movies that had a realistic atmosphere. This movie has that feeling of realism and realism is what the character's need. Mr. Wayne's car is the same type of car that is shown in other movies that had a realistic feel. If you don't want to see a movie that has a realistic feel you can watch the car in the movie and you won't see the realism. This movie also has a feel of realism that the guys can go back to WW2 with all of their gear. Many times I have seen WWII movies where the guys that fought in the war have so much equipment that they can't go back to the present day. This is what makes the movie realistic. In the movie you don't feel that they don't have equipment, you just don't see it. I recommend this movie to anyone who wants to see an entertaining movie.

This is a story about a group of Marine infantrymen, and a former military woman, who end up with one of their squad members shot and goes on the run from the government. The group decides to stay in Vietnam, but when they have to cross the border and get to Canada, things start to go wrong. With a lot of heavy and gritty scenes, this is not a good movie for younger children. The violence is graphic, but the film keeps you watching, to see how it will end. The direction and acting is pretty good, it's not just the fighting, the cast does a good job. As I said, not a great movie, but a decent one.

I went into this movie expecting to see a movie of a simple moral. I found that I was more interested in the story than the action. I am not sure if the writing or directing was a mistake, or if I expected too much of the movie. I was very impressed with the portrayal of the platoon. It was impressive to see the commitment and sacrifice of a small unit. All in all, the movie was very entertaining, although it did not take the time to develop the characters or the story.

This film is one of the best WWII films I have ever seen. It is not your typical action film, but it is an all around good film. The action in this film is pretty good. The characters are very well developed and the story is believable. This is a film that you should definitely watch.

I think that this is one of the best films I have ever seen. I am a member of the Academy for its rating system. This film received the lowest rating possible. The Academy was kind enough to award the best picture. It was a great honor for me. This film deserves to be recognized. I hope that the Academy will not overlook this film in the future. I am a supporter of the film, and I think that it is a great film.

This movie does a good job of showing what a soldier's life was like. The film is about a WW2 veteran who has returned home from the war and comes to terms with the loss. His brother is a doctor, who works for a military hospital in San Francisco. Will is a quiet man, who has difficulty relating to others. His brother has a good relationship with his daughter, who is also a nurse. But the thing that really bothers Will is the fact that he has no family. One night, his brother comes to visit, and is visited by the woman he is married to, and his son. Will does not know what to do. The two men have a very private conversation, and decide to move into Will's home. The two men are both very honest, and the conversation is a little uncomfortable. The two men leave a note on the refrigerator. The note says that they will be moving to a new home. Will is reluctant to let them move in, and asks the man how he would feel about a room to himself. The man responds that he would like to see how he feels. Will is very reluctant to let them move in, but lets them in. The two men are friendly, and it seems like they have been friends for years. They bring their son to the house, and they begin to show him things, like the bathroom and the washing machine. It seems like a normal family. But soon, things start to change. The man in the refrigerator keeps showing up at Will's house. Will is very afraid of the man. The man seems to be using Will for a reason. The man threatens Will, saying that if he doesn't pay attention to him, he will do things to his wife and son. Will is confused, and does not know what to do. Eventually, the man begins to use Will, and the two men become friends. Things get even more complicated when Will's wife and son are taken to a camp, and Will and his wife try to get the men to leave. The two men are reluctant to leave, but they do. The man in the refrigerator keeps coming back, and he seems to be used by the man. Will finally realizes what the man is doing. He finally decides that he needs to leave. The movie ends with Will trying to convince his brother to leave. The two men decide that it is best for Will to leave, and they begin the long drive to the other side of the country. This movie was very realistic, and showed the normal family life. This movie shows what a soldier's life was like. I recommend this movie to anyone who likes a good movie.

This film is well worth seeing if you can look past the poor quality of the picture and decent acting. A day in the life of a Marine enlisted man during the war in Vietnam. We learn of his best friend's death and his first week as a lieutenant. He has a lot of in-depth discussions with a psychiatrist in the medical ward about his own physical and mental issues. This is where we see a good dose of realism. The dialog is intelligent and well written. The picture itself is unimpressive. The colors are washed out and the use of the 70's/80's "look" is distracting. The music is not very good and the sound is worse. It is unfortunate that the poor picture quality that I saw really didn't help this picture at all. There were a lot of scenes where it looked like the picture was stolen from other movies. The DVD is presented in widescreen and that is why it is a little dull. Also, the picture quality was very distracting. I don't recommend this film.

The first time I saw this movie, I was impressed, but not as much as I would like to think. I think it is because of how much I had heard about it, and how much I liked the first movie. So when I saw the second movie, I had the same feeling that I had when I first saw the first movie. The same kind of feeling I had when I first saw the first movie. The film was great, but it did feel like it had a bit too much of a story and a bit too much of a film for the first movie. I felt like the story had a little too much of a focus on the war, which kind of ruined the effect the first movie had. It felt like the story was there just to get you in the movie. Also, there was a lot of stuff that was really just to make a point about the war. I am not a person who usually likes these kind of films, but this was a good one, and it was entertaining. It was fun to watch, and it was entertaining to me. I will be buying the DVD when it comes out. I recommend this movie to anyone who likes war movies. It is a great movie, and it is one that I will enjoy watching again.

This is a well made, well made film. It's not a masterpiece, but it's a good movie. I found the characters all to be believable. I think the characters were what really made the film. I felt the story was well told. It was about three soldiers in World War II, who were young boys. There was a German POW camp where they were being held, but the soldiers were not bothered by the war. They didn't see the enemy as enemies. They saw the enemy as children. I don't know if the Nazis were that evil, but I think they were. It was interesting to watch the characters get older and get more and more adult and then go on to the war. I liked the war. I liked the action. I liked the story. I think it was a good movie. It's not a great movie, but it's a good movie.

This movie is not a great film but it is a very good film. If you are a great war movie fan you will probably like this film. I am not a great war movie fan but I do enjoy this film and I can honestly say that this film is not as bad as many people say. The acting was great, the action scenes were great and the special effects were good. The movie was interesting and the special effects were amazing. I would say this is the best war movie ever. I am giving it an 8 out of 10.

It's easy to dismiss "Apocalypse Now" as a cheesy Hollywood blockbuster. You have to admit that the movie had a certain "Hollywood" feel to it. It's almost as if the director was thinking, "Hey, if we can make this look like an old-fashioned Hollywood movie, maybe it'll be good." The movie itself is much more than that, though. It's about the Vietnam War, and the reasons for the war. The characters are simple, but extremely believable. There are no perfect characters, and no perfect person. You don't have to like all the characters in the movie, but it helps if you get to know the characters well. And they really do care about each other. When the movie comes to a close, you see that not everyone is on the same page. The ending is so powerful that you don't know whether to be happy or sad about it. This is a film that won't be for everyone. It's very intense and has a lot of action. It also has some really powerful scenes, and you won't want to miss them. The movie also has a message that's very important. It's also very powerful and should be watched by all who want to learn something about the Vietnam War. It's a very important movie that deserves a higher rating than it's received. 8/10

I don't know if I should compare this movie to Saving Private Ryan, but I do think it is important to note that this movie is not just an American propaganda film. This movie, like the previous Saving Private Ryan, is about the real-life story of the men who risked their lives on the battlefront in WW2, and the effect that this war had on the men who were there, and how the men returned home. And just like that movie, this movie is also about the emotions and the feelings that these men must have felt at the time, and how this war affected them. What I also liked about this movie is that the film makers did not try to create a movie about the history of the war. Instead, they simply tried to make a movie about the men who had to fight in that war. There is not one person in this movie who is a war hero, but the men who fought in that war. This movie is not just about the men who fought in that war. It is also about the men who fought for their country, and how that war affected them. And I thought the acting was very good, and the actors did a very good job at portraying these men. I think that I should mention that I am a big fan of John Hurt, and he played the role of Private Gardner very well. Also, I thought the movie was very well directed, and I thought that it had a very interesting and well-made plot. I also thought that the acting was very good. This is a very good movie, and I highly recommend that everyone should see it.

The story of the real life Battle of the Bulge was a little too dramatic for me to get interested. The high point of the film is the battle scenes, but it's not enough to make me care about the characters or their fate. Still, I liked the military spirit of the movie. The characters are quite believable. For example, in the first battle, the American captain has to do things he would never have done. It shows that he really wants to do what's right. I also like how the American military came out in full force. I like how the young soldier in the movie is able to defeat the Nazi soldiers. And the final battle is a good example of what war is really like. It shows that you don't need to be a war hero to make the difference in a war. Overall, I thought this movie was good. It's not as good as Saving Private Ryan, but it's a good movie that I enjoyed. I'm not sure if it will get the attention it deserves.

The fact that this movie was made in the '60's and in the midst of the Vietnam war is not lost on this viewer. One thing that is true of this movie is that it was made on a tight budget. In this film the budget is actually an important factor. While the action sequences are quite well done, the fact that the budget was very tight did hinder the actors in this film. In this case the actors did not have much to work with. It is also a shame that the rest of the cast were not given much to work with. One thing I noticed was that the cast did not look like they were in a hurry to get to their destination. This was a good thing because this made the action sequences that much more believable. The movie does show how the Vietnam war affected the people in this area and it also shows that the soldiers were fighting for a country that was not their own. One thing that I would like to say is that I would not like to be a soldier. This movie shows what a soldier must do and what is involved in going to war. This movie shows the sacrifice that the soldiers made in the war. The story is very interesting and shows how the soldiers felt about their soldiers who fought in the war. It also shows how the soldiers felt about the country they fought for. This movie shows that one must be willing to go to war. It also shows that the Vietnam war did not affect the Vietnam people. One of the best aspects of this movie is the acting. This is a good movie to watch. It is an action movie that shows how war affected people in the Vietnam region.

This is a nice little movie about Vietnam War and the forces that were involved in the battle. The story is pretty good, but it's not a masterpiece. The special effects are a little too good. I just felt like I was watching a TV movie. The movie did not have the same impact as Saving Private Ryan, but it is still a pretty good movie. I do not recommend this movie for children under the age of 13.

This is a great war movie. I loved the characters, the story, the action. I just loved this movie.

The story was very well thought out. The character development was done very well and really went into depth about the characters. The characters themselves were all very likable. The sound and camera work was excellent. The fight sequences were great and there was never a dull moment. The story of this film is not for everyone. There is a lot of emotion and that is good in a film. The story is not the main focus of this film. There is some discussion about the Vietnam War and the need for this war. I don't think this film is political and that it should not be. It was a great story and really thought out. I would recommend it to anyone.
