Steven Seagal. Love him or hate him, one thing's for sure; not many people
Reviewed by MatthewThompsonDalldorf for Hard to Kill at 2012-02-26 03:41:35
An honest cop (Seagal) is targeted for assassination just when he's on the verge of exposing the corrupt actions of a local politician. He and his wife are shot and left for dead, but he miraculously survives. After seven years in a coma he goes on a rampage of revenge incorporating both fire power and bone-crunching aikido techniques. The story is ridiculousness, but the film seem to be very much aware of it's own goofiness and it's refreshing to see Seagal not taking himself too seriously. The action scenes are top-notch.

I appreciated this movie more the second time I saw it. Top-notch acting all around, and a great, rousing ending.

My Favorite Darabont Film
Reviewed by Sharkbait for The Green Mile at 2009-03-30 20:36:29
Powerful and incredibly well acted, this is one movie that, in my opinion, actually improved on the book. (I saw the movie first.) Incredibly faithful, it made only a couple of minor detours, but they were detours that made the story better. Some might complain about the length, but it never bothers me, as this movie is just too dang brilliant.

One Word: Wow.

As a general rule, I don't tend to like horror movies, unless they're exceptional. ("Alien" and "The Sixth Sense" would top my list there.) I don't go near slasher crap, and I much prefer suspense. "The Mist" is Horror with a capital 'H', but I watched it because it was Frank Darabont adapting Stephen King (plus, there seemed to be a bit of a sci-fi element to it), and I was not disappointed. In fact, I was totally blown away. This movie grabbed me by the jugular from the first scenes and didn't let go. Even with all the terrifying things coming from the mist, the greatest horror the characters face comes from each other; and while many people complain about the ending, to me it was incredibly effective, and absolutely devastating. If I have any problem with "The Mist", it was with the uneven CGI--at times brilliant, and at others too obviously fake. But the story hooked me so much, none of that mattered. A masterpiece.

One of the best Stephen King adaptations to film

This was as scary as I remember the story being; decent acting, creepy effects, keeps you on the edge. Well worth a second viewing.

Kind of Hard to Explain!

This movie is very corny, strange and yet somehow likable. This is the best I've ever seen Randy Quaid (I never thought I'd actually hear myself say that, but still...he was good!) Strange creatures, half-mutant people, plenty of 80s style humor (although this was made in 1993). Worth a watch once. You may like it and appreciate the bizarre humor, or wind up thinking it was awful!

One of the best movies ever!

When you make lemons of your life . . . make sweetened lemonade. A friendship developed in prison is for life with Red (Morgan Freeman). Being in the federal Pen looked brutal. Robbins offers financial advice for most of 19 years. You'll like the ending.
