It may have tried to be dark, but all it ended up feeling to me was clunky. Modern technology? Uh...they fight with guns? Like everyone else in regular action flicks? :rolleyes The fight scenes were a let-down to me precisely because the choreography was unoriginal and borrowed too heavily from much superior fight scenes in other films.Originally Posted by stargazer401
I don't ask for funny lines necessarily, but I do ask for good ones. Dialogue I don't cringe at when I hear it. It's not a genre problem, but a problem specific to this movie.
I think theatre-goers have become too complacent. If it sucks, it sucks. Sorry. (Admittedly, this isn't the worst movie I've seen, but...)
Bottom line: I liked "Once Upon a Time in Mexico" much, much better.
