Greatest Movie Ever!!!

It's like the Rambo remake only 1000 more people die

Fight scenes between Stallone and Austin, then again Austin and Couture - Legendary

Total guys movie, went to opening night and i think there were about 10 women in the entire audience

because it is new!

Inception is 9.1 wich would make it the highest rated movie of all time if it stays, higher than the god father 

Toy Story 3 after its first week was 9.4 it is now 8.9

You cant go into this thinking you are going to watch the greatest movie ever. you will be dissapointed. I havent seen it yet but I am sure its a decent action movie with 8 billion action stars in it that is probably fun for 90 minutes or so

I was just surprised it was that high at all.

For a movie that was supposed to be just a lot of action, no plot, and bad acting I was shocked it was over 7.

Compared to the "action stars", Eric Roberts is easily in the top 3 in acting talent, if not the best of that list at post #1.

I dont give a darn what the critics say and i dont give a darn how much of a psycho that Tom Cruise might be.

I go to be entertained and not enlightened at the cinema.

The dialogue was corny and the plot was ridiculous.

So what.

The movie was exactly as its billed. It was awesome entertainment.

I thought it was exactly what I was hoping for.

Alot of action, not the best acting in the world, some more action, eh decent not great plot, more action....

The funny thing is that Scott Pilgrim vs the World is getting rave reviews.

I saw it today and liked it a lot. Very good fight scenes and the worse broken neck I have seen in a while.

I liked it.  Exactly what I expected as everybody else has said.  It was just action followed by action and all the dialogue was one liners.  Thought it was better than A-Team for sure.

i saw it, could of been way better action wise with that cast... the dialogue was bad and some things in the movie just didnt make sense.   What they should of done with that ensemble cast was do something like the movie Heat.

This movie easily approached the so bad it's good territory like such classics as Point Break and Road House.  Really bad acting and dialogue to go with some unintentional comedy laugh out loud moments and some cool action scenes.

As far as imdb ratings, I dont trust them at all, they have had garbage like Number 23 ranked a 6.1 or so where on rotten tomatoes its correctly rated as the single digit piece of garbage it truly is.
