Read a lot of the one star reviews. Anybody else get the feeling that they were written by the same person?
I love Tom Cruise. In . Anything. People who hate this story. . Let's see you act and make a better one. It's a Sunday afternoon type of a chillax
great movie fun ride watch it with an open mind
I'm upset for not reading these revues first. I agree with the majority...it was not entertaining especially Tom's role.
Boring, boring, boring. That about sums it up.
I understand now why the rating is so low. I'm surprised it even got a 2 star rating.
This is my last Tom Cruise movie...he was terrible in it.
Did not like this one at all.
Would watch again for sure...
Friends and I like it, definitely worth a see ...
People...listen up.....don't go see this.
Why did I ever go to this movie?
one of the worst movies I have ever seen
I enjoyed it ... Great Movie ...
Happy to see I was the only one who was disappointed.
Why? Just Why? There were no scares, nothing. It wasn't even on the opposite side-no laughs either. What a POS. Stick to Mission Impossible films, Tom. I still like ya, but this made me think twice about that. I fell asleep and I NEVER do that cause I love movies too much.
Such a complete waste of my time. Tom is horrible in this.
Did not like this one at all.
I don't understand what ppl were expecting from this movie that they have given it such bad reviews. I almost didn't watch it after all the terrible reviews I read about it. But I don't know what ppl are talking about, the movie is awesome. If you're not a Tom Cruise fan, then why are you watching a Tom Cruise movie?? Why would you go to a Tom Cruise movie and expect Tom Cruise to not be Tom Cruise, that's just stupid. Also, I watched the Brendan Fraser movies and I liked those too. But if your expecting THIS movie to be like those, well... then you obviously set yourself up for disappointment. Again, a totally foolish move on anybody's part. If you watch the trailer for the movie, you will see that it's nothing like the Brenden Fraser ones! So yeah, seriously movies awesome. Loved the concept, loved how different it was. Granted, theres a few cheese lines in there, but what action doesn't have those?? My opinion, you like action? You don't expect this movie to like the others before it? Then go watch it! Cuz you'll love it. Don't listen to all that other crap about how crap it is because of Tom Cruise.. blah, blah, blah... Go watch it! The one you should avoid is Transformers! Terrible movie!! And this coming from a HUGE Transformers fan.
Out of the top 10 already? I can see why.
Cruise hasn't been this good since All the Right Moves.
I decided to waste my money and go see this despite the bad reviews about Tom. They were absolutely right....he was horrible.
It's hard to believe we are all watching the same actor and seeing totally different things. Cruise is NOT entertaining in this movie.
Loved the movie...... Hollywood doesn't like cruise, he delivered.... Could have been scarier....it was adventure.. Come on ppl
Horrible! Not worth the $
Ok, I thought I would give TC one more chance at redeeming himself, and he hasn't. He is so boring.
I'd give it a zero if it was allowed. I was very disappointed. TC is no longer the box office wonder boy. They've lost millions & millions on this on.
Just shows you how bad this movie is when cartoons annihilate this bad movie. Please don't spend your hard earned cash on this disaster.
Bad movie because of Tom's so called acting ability. He was awful.
I loved this movie from start to finish. I was interested way back when the trailers came out but put off going to see it because of the critic reviews. That was a mistake on my part. I am definitely not a Cruise fan but went for the story, effects and Sophia Boutella who is awesome in everything she does. It was great entertainment for 2 hours and I can't wait to buy a copy when it comes out on DVD. I have no problem with Cruise's performance in this film - he got the job done and if the film is still playing in a couple of weeks then I may go see it again. Great movie!
I really enjoyed this movie. I liked it better than the Brendan Fraser movies and I really like Brendan Fraser. I don't care for Tom Cruise's Scientology background and his judgment of non-Scientologists but this has nothing to do with enjoying a movie for its content. It was good to see Russel Crow. I like how Dr. Hyde was brought in as part of the evil's curse. I really enjoyed the Egyptian princess and her portrayal of the character. I just didn't care for the crusader zombie-like characters... too many and seemed unrealistic that anyone could get away from them. Simplistic review, I know, but too many negative reviews just because of dislike of Cruise do had to say something.
The movie was alright. Fun with a couple moments that had me leaping out of my seat. I felt that it didn't quite measure up to the hype of the preview, but it was just as fun to watch as the original Brendan Fraser series.
Great special effects!
Great special effects!
bad movie made terrible by Tom's acting. The original stands out as much much better.
Director Kurtzman put in much effort to make such a disjointed movie! Terrible film!
I'm surprised it even has 2 stars. TC made it so UNenjoyable for me. I hope the studios have learned their lesson on this big flop.....DO NOT use TC for anything again because I will now never go to another movie he's in.
This movie was not as bad as all the negative hype. I enjoyed it. You will too. I'm usually quite critical. Definitely better than Pirates or Guardians. Just escape.
