Mel Gibson returns with an idiosyncratic cop movie masterstroke (by francescobrosolo)
A sprawling, gritty action noir, gorgeously lit and morally challenging, where, as always, it is survival of whoever, beneath their mask, happens to be the fittest and the smartest . Potentially one of the most engrossing 158-minute films you'll ever sit through.
No actor teeters between mesmerizing and maddening like Mel Gibson (by bigblack2009)
Anchored by three brilliant central performances, Dragged Across Concrete is an interesting, unpredictable movie that presents two plots that feel like we've seen them before and then zigs when we expect it to zag. Mel Gibson is a singular voice in cinema, one who is willing to take pulp concepts and craft them into unflinchingly violent features.
Dragged across concrete (by efoster-79434)
Great movie! Definitely a thriller, can't wait to buy the DVD!
one of the best of '18/19 that no one will see.. Unfortunately (by ryanwcar)
This is a slow burn in every possible way. Much more related to his previous film cell block 99 than his Bone Tomahawk before that. It's a step by step play the entire film almost 0 editing and everything falls right in order of the story and it's the strongest point of the film. Some might yawn at the long run time but In my opinion it's justified. I was never bored or needed to pause to take a break for the entire 2 hours and 35 minutes of showing because at any point you think it's going to drag across concrete and fall flat on itself it gives you just enough to continue <more>
the show and boy does it become a show... But without giving away anything at all I can say it was worth my time and if you liked his previous work it's worth yours as well. The acting is top tier all around and the script is probably one of the most creatively worded I've ever seen with humor all over it just because of it but in a great intentional way. Just a shame only a few lucky ones will get the chance to see it but I'm glad this Writer/Director doesn't do wide release because we'd be seeing a different version and probably not for the better... and I applaud him for giving Vince Vaughn the roles he deserves he knocked it out of the park alongside Gibson. 9/10
S. Craig Zahler is the writer/director to watch. His previous two films, "Bone Tomahawk" and "Brawl in Cell Block 99" were brutal masterpieces, and his latest effort "Dragged Across Concrete" is a welcome addition to his resume.DAC is filled with the usual hard-boiled characters we've come to expect from Zahler, and Gibson and Vaughan deliver in their roles BIG TIME!!The film is packed with Zahler's witty dialog and extreme violence. Although more of a slow build then his previous efforts, DAC does dish out some major onscreen carnage. If you're a fan <more>
of gritty, no nonsense crime movies, DAC should be right up your alley. .Unlike other films that feel the need to explain every little angle, DAC lets the viewer fill in the blanks, and I found that very refreshing. And I wasn't bored once during the films epic 159 minute running time. The characters are compelling and the performances are spot on.Easily Zahler's most accessible work, DAC is awesome and worth checking out if you're a fan of crime thrillers or Gibson. I wasn't disappointed, and you shouldn't be either.It's a cold, hard world Zahler has built, and I look forward to my next visit to his bleak creation.
Engrossing & Nasty... Dragged is Nearly a Masterpiece. (by Joetampa90)
S. Craig Zahler has brought us two previous movies, both strong. Dragged Across Concrete is his strongest. We follow two detectives in Vaughn and Gibson who are suspended without pay for using excessive force. Gibson is too hard on his luck and fed up to take it lying down. He uses a connection to get a tip on an out of town drug dealer to rob. Mel brings his reluctant partner Vaughn on for the job as well. Their acting is undoubtedly on par and I enjoy their on-screen chemistry even if it is in a no-nonsense dry type of style.The film opens with neither of those two men on screen, instead, <more>
we get a very enjoyable and sometimes humorous introduction to another important character, Tory Johns . From there the film begins to unfold in Zahler's brand of a slow burn. Dragged is a film that takes it's time and creates an engrossing atmosphere and story. There are scenes of dialogue that go on for quite some time but I was always engrossed and very much enjoying the style of writing and banter on display in this script.Make no mistake about it though, this work does have some great action and edge of your seat moments. Executed above the current Hollywood bar for action set pieces in this type of film too. The last 50 minutes of the movie is downright amazing and so very tense. I really loved how everything wrapped up as well.Dragged Across Concrete does so many things correctly, which includes shocking you. One extended side character scene is so heinous and downright nasty, it almost felt as though Zahler was taking it a bit far just for the sake of it. However, this kind of disturbing approach to cinema is something I appreciate.Possibly this is a film for a certain kind of moviegoer, someone who appreciates the more hard-nosed tough aspects of the genre. But don't let that stop you from seeing it. Despite some predictability and maybe a touch of going too far just for the sake of it. I think that when the smoke clears on a stacked year of releases in 2019, we'll have one of the years best here. Maybe it falls short of being a masterpiece...but it does not fall short of being absolutely fantastic.
What do I mean by a real Movie movie... well basically.. all I'm getting at, is that you have to sit, listen and listen some more. I feel the characters are well cast.. all with their own brief introduction of back stories to what brings each of them to the closing scene. Old school patience of movie attention is required here. You will not be spoon feed action scenes, big explosions sex scenes and dramatic shots. You will however see how the relative shooting of each scene to its characters, dialogue and actualities. So glad to see two veterans of the game Mel Gibson & Vince Vaughn <more>
star in a movie that tells a story fitting of their decree. This film is a great watch.
I have to start by saying I enjoy the work from S. Craig Zahler. Bone Tomahawk was a bloodbath of a western and Brawl In Cell Block 99 hit you like a sledgehammer, in the best way possible.I will start with what I enjoyed...The character development was spot on. The interaction between actors were engaging, some more than others. Every scene felt like it had purpose, it may have been for an emotional attachment, or to make you understand the mindset of an individual. If you enjoy the small details in movies, this is for you. The sly way of someone saying something to another character. The <more>
purpose of a scene that does not seem relevant at the time, but will. A lot of small details that I really appreciated. The storyline of the movie was well done. The movie was filmed in a way to make you feel like you are there, in the action. It was very intense at times, so much so that I forgot to breath at times. Loved all the actors involved. Not going to lie it was interesting to see Mel Gibson in a different role. It was similar in a sense of how aggressive he is, but the personality was different.What I didn't enjoy...It's simple, a lot of the scenes were longer than they needed to be. The writer/director has made a movie that feels a more self-indulgent. He tried to make a scene longer for no apparent reason other than he must have loved everything he wrote. I would not remove a single scene, however I would shorten a few of them.All in all the movie was great. It is dark and grimm, but engages you at all times, even the boring ones. You never know what could happen due to what led to the events. At no times does the movie pull any punches, which is what I love most about the movie.
Would've been great if it was 90-100 mins long. (by TheTopDawgCritic)
I'm not a fan of long slow-burn films, as they're usually 50% a waste of plot and recorded film, and this film was just that. The message of any film does not need to exceed the length of its story, to the point of frustration and boredom.Like Bone Tomahawk and Brawl in Cell Block 99 both with a 132 min run-time , my same comments will apply... great directing and writing by S. Craig Zahler, but he needs to save this planet some trees, and use less paper on his screenplay. The 159 min length of this film was ridiculously long and unnecessary. Was an editor even hired?Casting and <more>
performances were great, but I would have rather seen the cast instead of acting bored as per script with slow low-toned dialogue sounding like it came out of a slow-talking drunk, act more like or at lease close to the Gibson in the Lethal Weapon films.The story itself was great, but the slow pacing really didn't leave much to the imagination, as everyone knew what was coming up next, and got bored waiting for it to happen. It added nothing more to any tension or suspense - if anything, took away. I get this is S. Craig Zahler's M.O., but making this film longer than his previous two films I've seen, is not giving him any props when his viewers start to lose interest, and have better use of their time wasted.Still, I did enjoy this film based on the story's premise, directing, and performances, and feel it deserves a very generous 8/10, but it's certainly not anything higher, like some of the fake 10/10's. It may have been a close 10/10 from me if it wasn't so long and slow. Would I recommend it? Only if you're ok with long slow burn dramas. Would I see it again? Hell no.
