Kevin Hart was funny in a few scenes but unfortunately whatever energy and enthusiasm he had was not in anything else, probably due to the lack of chemistry between him and Cube and the director most certainly forgot to add any energy or fun to keep it entertaining

One of the most beautifully character driven and emotionally involved films I have seen in a very longtime. One of 2013's most breathtaking and triumphant motion pictures. Director, Stephen Frears crafts a dynamic and compelling masterwork. It's sharp, very funny and very well characterized film. It delivers superb writing's and glorious acting from its two leads. Judi Dench gives one of her greatest performances, a brilliant and wonderful portrayal full of grace, heart and heroism. Steve Coogan is outstanding, he gives an impressive and strong performance. Coogan and Dench have excellent chemistry together. Coogan also helps pen this delightful script that does not hold back on any of the crueler themes and stays true to its roots. A sheer and beautiful piece of work that's honest, poignant and filled with heart. A truly remarkable, charming and tear-jerking comedic drama. This is certainly one of my new favorite films ever.

A must-see legendary match up between two great screen legends who totally command the screen together. Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone are at their best, they give great performances and shows that it does not matter how old you are but that you still have passion for what you do and these guys still got it and deliver in it perfectly. Stallone and De Niro just get better and better as the years go on. The rest of the cast is top-notch and great to watch. Kim Basinger is terrific. Kevin Hart is hilarious. Alan Arkin is excellent. Jon Bernthal is wonderful. A wonderfully entertaining and wickedly enjoyable movie filled with remarkable character development. outrageous humor and great in-the ring action. A hilarious, charming and heart-filled film that i truly loved. Movies don't get better than this, it has action, comedy, drama, a great soundtrack and just has a great feeling. The final showdown between Stallone and De Niro is simply awesome.

One of the years best action movies hands down. A strong and tough film that when is not shooting or blowing things up it packs a hard-hitting amount of riveting drama that feels very real and effective. Director, Gary Fleder gives a great energy to the material, crafting a fine heart-pounding film. Writer/Producer, Sylvester Stallone writes a deep, down and thrilling story that balances drama and action well. Stallone wrote the role specifically for Statham, giving him new reach and depth that he knew the action star could accomplish. Jason Statham is at his absolute best, he gives a powerful and surprisingly compassionate performance. Statham proves to be getting better as an actor, just improving with every performance. James Franco is excellent, finally dropping from his recent line of comedies and back to more serious territory and proving to be more than an exceptional match for Statham. I loved this movie, it is truly awesome and delivers big time. It's utterly thrilling, heart-pounding and sometimes deeply moving.
An intensely riveting and mind-blowing first-rate edge of your seat… MoreAn intensely riveting and mind-blowing first-rate edge of your seat thriller. A truly serious knockout of a thrill-machine. It hits you harder than a punch, but like a sledge-hammer to the gut and even then it's still not finished with you. A wickedly entertaining and viciously compelling ride that is truly a must-see. It's provocative, stylish and pulse-pounding every step of the way. A brilliant and darkly poetic re-interpretation to the classic Korean picture. A heart-piercing and mind-shattering masterpiece. Director, Spike Lee crafts one of his best films in years, he takes an entirely different direction and shows great tribute to the original but makes his own film entirely that is nearly more shocking and satisfying. A bold, bloody and brilliant movie. It's awesome and sadistically spectacular. A blistering, action-packed and compelling. It totally grabs you. Josh Brolin is sensational, he gives one of his best performances. Sharlto Copley is outstanding, he is perfectly menacing. It keeps your heart racing with non-stop suspense and brings a devastatingly dark twist at the end but has it in a strangely satisfying way. An unforgettable classic revenge tale.
