blew me away. The movie was so well done that I couldn’t possibly fit all of the great moments into this review.
Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg were perfect. The chemistry that these two have is incredible. They brought their characters to life in such a way that it was actual movie magic. We’ve known for years that Denzel is a great actor but this movie has proven Wahlbergs worthiness beyond a shadow of a doubt. No matter what kind of role he takes, he makes it his own.
It will appeal to almost everyone. This movie recipe has comedy, drama and action and the amounts were perfect. The screen cooked for 109 minutes! Even during the dramatic moments there was an underlying comedic tone, but not in a corny way. It just plain worked.
The supporting cast did an amazing job as well. James Marsden, Bill Paxton and Edward James Olmos each contributed another perfect dash to this five star dish. These three were all bad guys in a really good way.
Why are you still here? You should be on your way to theater by now. Seriously, go.
