Having seen this film on the big screen, I can honestly say that it is the greatest film I have ever seen. I watched it in one of those movies, and it is the perfect blend of the sword-and-sorcery and comedy. Yes, I am serious. If you haven't seen it, you should go and see it!

Lionel Richie is a quiet man, a farmer who runs a place of warm leather, watch-towers and shepherds. His daughter is kidnapped by local bandits who steal her to ransom a young boy, he is determined to track down the kidnappers and return the girl, but first he must defend his town from vicious robbers, with deadly results. Jack the Ripper has left a swath of terror across London and everyone knows about it, as did the British Government. Jack the Ripper is the most notorious serial killer in British history, though the true identity of the killer remains a mystery, and this film is more about the legends and the events than the criminal behind the crimes. The producers of the film were at pains to make sure that the sensational aspect of the legend was not overshadowed by the politics and the money which kept Londoners at a distance from the news. The script is not at all heavy handed, the performances are very strong and this is a very engaging and well made film, but the sensationalism means that the film is at times just a bit boring. The film is set in late 19th Century England, and although this is the period in which the legend has been carried to the height of its popularity, it is also an era of British social conservatism. After a bombing of the village butcher shop and a letter from an alarmed mother, Lionel is convinced that something terrible is happening. To find out what it is, he goes to a meeting of the local police commissioner, and the only person at the meeting who recognises him is the local sheriff, who doesn't recognise him either. But who is the real Jack the Ripper?

I had heard about this movie for a while and I finally decided to go see it. I think the movie is good, but not great. It has a great storyline, although the way they end it could have been better. This is a good movie to watch with your girlfriend. It's not to be taken too seriously, though.

In the tradition of "High Noon" and "The Wild Bunch", "The Old Guard" is the story of two gangsters and their master (a former reporter turned crime boss) who "tune out" their hard-luck gang members, instead choosing to employ a mentally-challenged young man to assassinate the boss in the hopes of buying him off. The plot of "The Old Guard" is pretty much exactly what you'd expect, with no real twists or surprises, but what it lacks in originality, it more than makes up for in some really interesting characters and some rather well-chosen locations. "The Old Guard" works because it knows it's a movie and doesn't try to be anything else. However, some of the characters are a bit cliched and some of the events and plot twists are a bit predictable, but if you're looking for a well-written and well-acted movie, you should definitely check this one out.

One of the most classic of all the 80's action thrillers.It is amazing that when the movie comes out on DVD,I am going to buy it!Why? Well,because it is so very underrated! Some might say that it has its flaws,but they are all very minor.First off,it has an interesting story,very cleverly written,and it has some excellent action scenes.One thing that I liked about it was the very original casting,that is why I give it a 9 out of 10!

I thought that this was a great movie. The action and plot line is simple yet well thought out. The acting is great, from the guards to the soldier. And I really like how the soldiers in the movie are just as realistic as the guards, and the civilians. I really love the way that they treat their friends and family. I loved the way that they use the war as a way to get revenge on the enemies of the "old guard". The way that they are fighting each other. I loved it. I have seen it 2 or 3 times and i am glad that i have the DVD to watch it again. A great movie, the most realistic and well done movie i have ever seen. 10/10

There are two kinds of "high school" films, those with a juvenile character and those with a mature character. Some examples of these include the ones you can watch with your kids and some that you might have to be seen by a real mature adult. "The Old Guard" is one of those. However, this is definitely one of the better ones. It has an adult hero and a fairly mature heroine. But the hero and heroine are young. The hero is Dylan Webb (Travolta) and his younger sister Hannah (Laura Linney) are starting their first year of college. As the story goes, the principal of the school is trying to keep Dylan from going to college. And Hannah is trying to get him to go to college. Their parents (Christina Applegate and Christopher Walken) want Dylan to go to college but Hannah is tired of waiting. Eventually, they agree to let Dylan go. Dylan is so ashamed that he wishes that he was the one who was supposed to go to college. As the story goes, Dylan is able to do his thing. He gets the best grades and he has the best grades on his final project. As the story goes, Dylan is not able to get a girlfriend. And he does not get a girlfriend because his girlfriend is getting married. The film has a bit of romance. There are some boys in the school that Dylan seems to be kind of an object to. And there are some people who are kind of interested in Dylan. Overall, this is a pretty good film. I am a fan of Travolta and I have to say that I did not like this film. He is not that good of an actor and I think he could have done better. However, I did like the story. I think this story could have been a bit more original. And the ending was kind of predictable but still good. There is no doubt that "The Old Guard" is a film that I would like to watch again. It is a really good film and a really good film to see with your kids. My rating: 7 out of 10.

I just want to say that this movie is amazing. I haven't seen a movie like this in a long time. I'm a big fan of action films and I loved this movie. I don't know how else to describe it. The acting was amazing, the plot was amazing, the characters were amazing, the fight scenes were amazing, the special effects were amazing, the props were amazing. The only thing that could have been better would have been if there were more action in the movie. If you are a fan of action films, you have to see this movie. I'm a big fan of Christopher Nolan and I think he is one of the greatest directors of all time. If you are not a fan of action films, you should definitely see this movie. It is definitely a must-see.

Let me start out by saying that I am a HUGE fan of the original 90's Spider-Man film, and I have seen plenty of inferior versions over the years. So I wasn't going to give this film a chance. I had never read the comics, so I had no idea how good or bad this movie would be. I didn't realize until after I watched it that it was going to be horrible. I'm not a fan of Spider-Man, and I was bored and irate when I saw the first Spider-Man movie. But this movie took the franchise from the death of Spider-Man's comic-book rival and has been a massive disappointment. To be fair, there are some good things. The acting is great, the special effects are good, the pacing is good, and the plot is good. But for a movie to take this much time to introduce Peter's origin, to show how he has a special place in the Spider-Man universe, and to show him as a great hero, that is so flat, I can't imagine how they could have made this better. I thought that the "misfit" story was weak, and the twist in the end was weak. I had no idea what was coming next, so I was disappointed. The only thing I liked about this movie was it's homage to the original Spider-Man movies, and the CGI was impressive. But that's it. This movie was mediocre, it was a waste of time, and I would rather watch Muppets Tonight on Comedy Central.

I am trying to get to the bottom of the rating of this movie. I have seen it 5 times already and each time it has gotten better. It is one of my favorite films and will be in my collection for a long time. It is the perfect cast for a gangster film, and it is full of all the elements that are necessary for a movie to be successful. It is fast paced, it is full of action, it is filled with many funny moments, and it has the humor that will make you feel happy and entertained. I highly recommend this movie to anyone that likes gangster movies. I would rate it a 9.5 out of 10.

I went to see this movie without any expectations at all. I am a big fan of Brad Pitt and his acting is very impressive. I think this is his best movie. I can not say enough about this movie. I really enjoyed it. I think this is the best movie of all time. I will not say any more because I am not going to spoil it for you. But I really liked it. The movie is a must see. It is a great mix of action and romance. Brad Pitt is very believable as the head of the Wild Pack and he did a great job in this movie. The cinematography of the movie is great and is beautiful to look at. I am glad I saw this movie. It is the best movie of all time.

John Travolta was the best part of this movie.He played it straight, so there wasn't any problems with the chemistry with Scarlett.They made the audience feel what it was like for Scarlett's character.You never knew what was going to happen.You saw a lot of emotions.The story was interesting and unique, and you wanted more.The actors did a good job, and the story was very good.The only problem with this movie was the last minute.The audience was wondering what was going to happen.There was no suspense left at all, so it was very disappointing.If you are a fan of the series, see it.If not, don't see it.

This movie is worth watching, if you can get a hold of it, no matter what its age. It's certainly different than the usual fare, but it is definitely a good one. To my knowledge, there is no director's cut. This movie was a work of art. I think the director, Tom Smith, should be proud of this movie. The actors in this movie were fantastic, and I love the way they used the classic elements of the old kung-fu films. The story was a great mix of drama and action, and it kept you guessing until the very end. The fight scenes were excellent, as was the casting. If you are looking for a great action movie, go and watch this one. It's great!

This is a movie of a young man who is seen as a 'shy', and a 'lonely', when he actually does have a lot of friends and a lot of friends' wives. He has friends that he doesn't know much about, but are all in love with him. He gets into a car accident, where the whole car has been wrecked, and a group of guys who want to steal it from him. The movie is very simple, but it is worth watching. It has a lot of comedy, but it is a light and pleasant movie. It is based on a story by Alexander Dumas, and it's a little bit of a shame it is not that well known. There are plenty of good things about this movie, and one can easily watch it many times. It is very well done, and is very entertaining. The movie is a little bit dated, but it is a good movie to watch, and you should definitely give it a chance.

THE OLD GUARD is a dark film. It is not a comedy. This is a serious film that is really scary. The special effects are great, as well as the acting and the script. This film is perfect for anyone, even the most hardened of fans of the genre. I would recommend this film to anyone that is looking for a truly frightening film.

The plot is a rip off of Empire Strikes Back and Indiana Jones. John Milius got the right idea. It's a collection of old fashioned comic book style action scenes and he stars as the lead character. Everyone in the cast is equally good. The scene stealer is Anthony Quinn as an evil man who wants to turn the world into a giant maze. Overall the movie is worth watching if you like action and adventure. The special effects are great, although at times the scenes look fake. The plot is a rip off of Indiana Jones. Also, there are similarities to The Matrix. It's worth watching, but don't expect a masterpiece. It's not that bad.

This was one of the first movies I watched on the big screen, in the early '80's. I've seen it three or four times now. It's still one of my favorites. No one's perfect, so I'll give it a seven. There are a few flaws in the movie, the most prominent being that I feel that the hero's outfits and other things are a bit odd. Still, it's still one of my favorites. I'd give it an 8, but it's only because of the little things that can be overlooked. The rest of it is fine, and it's very entertaining. The special effects were very good in the 80's, and this movie holds that honor. There were some changes in the film to make it more modern, but it was still enjoyable, and it still holds up. I just have one major problem with this movie. I don't understand why the hero's wife is the last to see him die. He seems to have a powerful feeling for her. There's no sense of jealousy or anything, so why is she the last to see him die? It just seemed like a silly scene. Other than that, the movie is good, and it still holds up. It's also one of the few movies that I've ever seen that I enjoyed seeing over and over again.
