Sometimes. A lot of times it seems reviewers don't pay attention to what type of movie they are watching. (What? The cheesy horror movie has a crap plot?!?! The Expendables 2 was just more of the same, but better? WHAT!???!)

Sometimes they do get some stuff right tho.


Call Kenny Loggins. Cause you're in the Danger Zone.

A film's genre is no excuse for a shitty plot.

I wish idiots would stop forgiving movies for obvious flaws. We'd get a lot more quality movies.

Same here. So many films I've liked that have had really poor reviews.

It's not like I'm going into this expecting anything oscar worthy, I just want Neeson to kick arse. As long as it's in the same line as number 1, I'll be happpy.

Definitely. Sometimes they get it right, of course, but every dog has its day.

I have been on film sites and the same person has reviewed a lot, so much you can see a trend. Such as;

Tree of Life *****
Melancholia *****
Scarface Blu ray *****
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy *****
The Godfather re-release *****
Expendables 2 *
Princess Diaries *

It's almost laughable but then you see people not going to see Expendables or Princess Diaries because they feel it's not good because some arrogant art-house wannabe director has given it 1 star. It would be like a Justin Bieber fan giving something by Jimi Hendrix 1 star and Biebers latest *****

My point is, nobody should care if critics don't like it. If it's a carbon cutout of the first 1 it will still be worth seeing.

I'm not surprised it's bombing critically, there was no need for it to happen in the first place.

I guess I shouldn't be surprised that Taken got a sequel given the success of the first one. I liked the first one just fine, but I have no interest in seeing another.

I imagine that, at worst, it will be just a rehash of the first one. I can't see it being stunningly awful.

Don't see this movie. Rent it if you're forced at gunpoint to, but don't pay to see this movie. It was so fucking stupid. It's something you wouldn't watch all the way through if it were on TV even.

Spoiler for stupid:

Liam is tied up somewhere and he has his daughter throw grenades miles away so he can determine how far apart they are by the sound. Liam pushes the big boss into a wall and kills him. Liam has his daughter drive a get away car rather than himself because she needs to learn how to drive. Liam loves double fudge milkshakes, but hates strawberry ones.

That all sounds pretty bad. Not sure how serious you are about the last one but yeah.
