A Movie That Goes Nowhere
Ok, this “action film” began as an “action film” then went nowhere. A lot of talking followed by more talking. Some scenes weren’t even needed. What was with the scene JoBeth Williams and Walken? Did we need to have this 5 minute part in the movie. You ask me, they had the scene just to take up 5 minutes.
90% of the movie is leading up to the final 10& of the movie. And is it worth it? Not really. Yes, you get your explosions and a lot of things blow up with fire and blood, but it’s not enough. No real meat on the bone. Just coming off of an Academy Award with the Deer Hunter, I think Walken had too much responsibility of holding together a movie. You ask me, the film needed a rewrite and a re-edit. Maybe so more star power besides having tiny roles for Tom Berenger and Ed O’Neil
