An unpretentious film. Highly underrated. (by robertfalzmann)
"Catch .44" is a good film because it keeps us wondering until the very end about who the characters are, what they are doing, and what the story is or what's going on. The film is told out of sequence and to good effect . Unlike most films, this one is not stupid or pointless. It reminds one of a stage play character drama , but for today's audiences. It is not an action film but a poignant drama.I noticed the many bad reviews for this film. Funny how that is because I found this film to be original and refreshing in a way. Of course the film is not for everyone's <more>
tastes but I enjoyed it. For people who did not enjoy this film, please keep the bad reviews to yourselves. "Catch .44" does not compare with other films.
Since Tarantino makes different movies nowadays...why not: (by Julian0922)
give this a try! You won't be disappointed! Some people call it Tarantino Rip off, who cares! I was waiting for a movie like that for about 10years, and its NOT disappointing in NO way. You will be entertained throughout, see some familiar faces and the story is also OK with an interesting twist. Whitaker at its best...keep it in mind! The only better movie I saw this year was Drive and that says it all where this movie is heading! And JA, it has lots of parts in it that look "familiar", with just different actors and dialogues, but hey, there are franchises of movies out there <more>
that are way way worse! And if they are not bad to lots of people, why is this outstanding one bashed?? Btw Tarantino ripped off movies himself...so who sits in a glasshouse should not throw with stones! I write not many reviews here, but the average rating here, which I expected to be way higher, made me do so!
Perhaps Europeans expect less effects and more story telling. This movie brings both. It is told in fragments which are not in chronological order. This opens the opportunity to make good effects at the end of a cut as the non-chronological order, whereafter it brings you to somewhere completely different in the story. You wonder what is in between the gaps. This serves the story telling very well.One sees that the production of the movie is of very high quality. For some reason they chose to make Bruce Willis with moles on both sides of the face and a ridiculous beard approx. 10 long hairs <more>
under the lower lip. No, we do not like this drug dealer, that he portrays in this movie. It has also a touch of comical humor, which distances you from what objectively is happening. On the cost side it lacks reality. The characters are unreal in the sense we could not meet them in the outside world. I agree in this choice because it is meant to entertain. Not educate or moralize.It is not the ending that is important. The story could have been told in innumerable ways. And I am inclined to believe, that Quentin Tarantino has not been in vain.
a drug heist gone bad turns psychodrama (by Jorgescarlisle)
A drug heist gone bad turns into the longest Mexican standoff in movie history, which serves as backdrop for an inter-character psychodrama.The strong back-story is told through flashbacks and a progressive repetition of a traumatic shootout scene, which is used to establish two of the moderately well fleshed out main characters but leaves the balance of the cast notably lacking in character development.Forest Whitaker's command of his scenes dominate the movie. By contrast, Bruce Willis's portrayal of his thinly developed character is a bit underplayed—not the best movie of either <more>
of these greats by far.Malin Akerman however, really puts a feather in her cap for this one. Her character "Tes," ain't Lauri Jupiter. This film serves to demonstrate how wide this lady's range is by comparison to her early works on screen.The balance of the cast, each of notable talent, were sadly not given the opportunity to demonstrate the full extent of their skills. I was particularly disappointed with the amount of material Shea Whiggham was given to work with. For now I suppose, we'll have to suffice with Boardwalk Empire to see the range of this actor.The score is worthy of note, with a single exception—the plug for Bruce Willis's 1980's singing debut was unforgivable and weakened the strength of both the score and the movie overall.Overall though, in spite of the flaws, this movie is worth watching. You shouldn't walk away feeling that you've lost 90 minutes of your life that you'll never get back, and it's a better film than a lot of what I've seen coming out of Hollywood this year.
Great movie - Almost like directed by Quentin Tarantino (by vincent-vega85)
I watched this movie without even taking a look at it previously. However, after having seen it I can truly say - it is worth to be seen.It starts off as 2 story lines the 3 girls and then Ronny's which slowly merge together. It is somehow very similar to Quentin Tarantino QT movies - for example like Pulp Fiction - where multiple story lines combine at the end. Also the splatter effects and the little subtext stories for ex. final story at the end where Mel and Ronny meet told by the actors are much like the ones from QT. It was just weird to see Bruce Willis in such a role. He is <more>
a freaky messy Boss who hires people with "special" talents. He hired the blond girl to do jobs for him. Somehow they messed up the last job they did. So after quite a while the received a new "easy" Job from Mel B. Willis . And they tried to make it count, because they all needed the cash. At the end everything/everybody comes together in a little truck stop and the ending is as bloody as the start.
