More please!
This movie was made WHEN? Noticeable yes, but a great movie to this day! And not once did it have CG. Great movie with most aspects of this movie rounded without too much of any. And subject matter with good/evil connotation without being preachy along with great actors giving great performances. What more can be said.
It would be nice to see more movies like this being produced but it's way, Way, WAY, easier to produce garbage that looks pretty on screen, than to produce a movie with great acting, great plot, great motivation, great dialogue, rounded action, drama, mystery, thriller, WITHOUT CGI!!!
Take Die Hard. LOVED the first one, NOW with the latest one (in Russia w/son) we have a 60yo 'star' blowing up helicopters single handedly (in EVERY Die Hard movie it seems), being thrown across the room, jumping off a building (again, in almost every movie) like he was in his 20's or even 30's, apparently being at the right place at the right time to foil what would be (and still turns out to be) a huge criminal/international/terrorist/rouge military operation! Oh, and I forgot, with BIGGER and more explosions, and LOTS of CG!
I get it, 'It's a Jon Bruce Willis action movie. It's MEANT to entertain with explosions, catch phrases, and seemingly impossible odds. It's meant to indulge our brutal, aggressive, feelings/emotions, it's supposed to be viewed with your brain off. It's not like people go to a Die Hard flick to get teary eyed, or see a touching story of a father/son bonding, or even a movie goers mystery. They didn't go to see Die Hard for any deep thinking, they go see it to have fun!'
But Hollywood is conditioning us to equate fun, with visual sensory overload, regardless of the quality, and usually the quality is below par and becoming lower EXPONENTIALLY every single time a movie comes out! But WAIT!!! I personally love CG, I really do! Some of my favorites are BECAUSE of the CG, especially because I LOVE sci-fi, space, time travel, super power, alien type movies and all of these require a great deal of CG at a minimum. But that's not to say that that is the ONLY reason why they're my fav's, they're my fav's because they have great CG, ALONG WITH great story, great acting, great character drive or relatable characters. CG is NOT the problem. It's the fact that that's all Hollywood puts most if not all of their time and effort! Regardless if the rest of the movie and all its parts (acting, production, location, directing, story, etc.) are any good. Or, they take an already existing GREAT story, make the next part with bigger explosions, more unbelievable scenes/stunts that ultimately need to use CG, on top of the CG set/location, throw a known 'star' or an up-and-coming 'star' to infuse the franchise with 'star power', some SMOKIN' hot chicks for enemies, girlfriends/love interests, hostage, victim, witnesses, mix together, BAM!!! 'A Good Day to Die Hard.' Great story destroyed. Money in the producers bank.
Most every movie now is a revamp of some older and/or more successful movie. Original story? Good luck! Stupid movies that are so lame they're actually good, or 'B' movies that turn out to be cult classics, or even sleeper hits that do horrible at the box office but over time prove to be amazing flicks are one thing, but Hollywood takes what little great plots there are in any movie already made and bombs the heck out of it with CG, calls it 'a modern twist', and kicks back to wait for the cash to come in. Some plots they use don't even have to be good, they just use ANY story as long as they can revamp it with CG to make money at the end of the day, because that is all the people who produce movies of us care about, CA$H. They don't go home and think 'I hope movie goers will enjoy this' or 'I got to come up with something fresh for the people that pay to watch movies, I don't want to keep putting up the same garbage over and over again' or even 'This time I'm making sure that the acting regardless of the actor is going to be memorable.' ALL PRODUCERS (the people who finance the movie, so by their logic, have a say in every aspect of the movie) CARE ABOUT IS CA$H, NOTHING MORE, NOTHING LESS.
No thank you Hollywood. My fight might be in vain, but I'd rather 'die on my feet than live on my knees.'
Good movie. I have seen this many times. I always feel like I have been punched in the gut after watching this..Great acting.
Worth a watch, not awe inspiring, but what can you expect from a 90's movie? 7.5/10
so, 1995 was before google, huh? "September 4, 1998
Google, Date founded" It's crazy because their major plot development reminded me of how old this movie had to be.
this is true Mystery movie i ever seeen
"Wanting people to listen, you can't just tap them on the shoulder anymore. You have to hit them with a sledgehammer, and then you'll notice you've got their strict attention" ... A film about two homicide detectives' desperate hunt for a serial killer who justifies his crimes as absolution for the world's ignorance of the Seven Deadly Sins. The movie takes us from the tortured remains of one victim to the next as the sociopathic "John Doe" sermonizes to Detectives Sommerset and Mills -- one sin at a time...
