Ripley's movie review

Jackson played a big, intimidating man in a skirt and was the least interesting character. Carlyle was great and he swore so much that I couldn't help but laugh. Some of the things he said were hilarious. Meat Loaf and Ifans were weird but good and Mortimer was ok. Parts of the movie were funny and it was never boring but most of it was just dumb. Only worth watching if there's nothing else on.

Newt's movie review

A waste of time. There were a few mildly humourous bits, but I'm pretty sure this was supposed to be an action movie. There was the requisite car chase (sort of), plenty of guns, a female love interest, and more swearing than I could keep up with, but the whole thing was flat. Don't bother.
