Two action comedies will hit cinemas fairly soon, but only one of them is intentionally funny. The other just looks laughably stupid.
This trailer won me over when Christopher Walken refuses to put his hands up just because someone points a gun at him. That’s pretty damn funny. Then we have Colin Farrell and Sam Rockwell playing unusual con-artist pacifists in a situation that’s way over their heads. Meanwhile, Woody Harrelson is a mob boss emasculated when his precious Shih Tzu is kidnapped. The story from writer/director Martin McDonagh, whose previous ‘In Bruges’ has quickly grown into a cult favorite, looks to have a terrifically dark and quirky edge. I’m willing to give this one a chance in theaters.
I’m just going to come out and say that this looks like the most idiotic thing to ever come out of Hollywood. The original movie with Patrick Swayze wasn’t anything special, but at least its premise of a Communist nation invading the United States actually seemed plausible to a small degree during the height of the Cold War. Today, this just seems completely stupid. Seriously, are you f**king sh*tting me?! We’re supposed to believe that North Korea is going to invade the U.S.? And what the hell is up with Chris Hemsworth’s accent? The directorial debut of stuntman Dan Bradley, this movie looks like it will suck major balls. Unfortunately, it’s possibly make a decent return at the box office from younger audiences anyway.
