Well hubbie wanted to see it so we saw it this afternoon. I have to be honest that while I remember the TV series I don't remember details.
I didn't think the movie was as bad as the reviewers said it was. It was ok for what it was which meant a lot of flash bang, car chases and things breaking and blowing up. I've seen a LOT worse.
I would NOT take young children to see this movie. There is lot of 'cold blooded' violence in this. The hero is a spoiled egotistic party boy...very little to admire about him til the end when he finally starts to grow up. Scenes of parties, hedonism but there is nothing 'graphic'.
Some scenes went on for way to long. They could have used some good editing.
And I"m getting tired of how they script writers have to go out of their way to show that the 'buddies' are not gay by making them practically perverts.
We get it. They are heterosexual males. They like girls. Don't overdo it.
The interplay between Brett and Cato was very funny though. I LIKED that the female lead knew how to say no! While Brett and Cato were both attracted to her in the end no one got the girl. Very refreshing to not have a love story cluttering things up.
So while I don't know if I will see it again I would not write it off either. When things were blowing up it was very funny.
