Unfortunately, the movie just lacks in everything that made MS work. The main story seems to get lost in itself, the actors seem more like they are there to help a buddy make his movie than really shine, and there's never really any time when the movie gets exciting. Overally, it wasn't completely bad, but with the talent involved it should have been *much* better. It current;y has a ~6.3 on IMDB, i believe it will settle closer to 5.5...
    How much faith do you put in the IMDb ratings really Meg?? Even if you are say really into Westerns?? But the people leaving there ratings/reviews are movie buffs but not avid Western movie lovers?? I know it is a new release and there was only just over 600 people that posted reviews.. My downfall is i seem to always go to movies that i know the actors in it, and i miss so many diamond in the ruffs because of it....

    I Am Wrath (2016)
    ....IMDb rating 5.4 with 11,130 reviews/posts
    I thought it was entertaining and a typical Travolta action movie but for me personally it also had Christopher Meloni that stared in Law and Order SVU and thought he played his roll really good in that..
    If you are into typical action revenge style movies i would recommend you to check it out, the story line was pretty good...

    On a personal note to you Meg...

    You know thinking now that i see you changed your splash screen and you know actually that was not necessary, just adding the truthful fact context that i did post would have made it a true statement of what i actually said, because i did use those exact words and a few in the beginning of that comment, for that i apologize for not explaining it that way. It's like going to twitter and watching a video posted and then seeing all the horrible people turning on a person and threatening his/her life!! Then a few hours later the full footage is posted and it was completely not what it seemed!!! I guess that's what you can call "Fake News". But really thinking about it on the full footage you only see less than half of the comments, It is like everyone still believes or wants the horrible fake version, not the real truth, to me the biggest dangers of Internet today

    Initially, I never expected to leave that siggyup for more than a day. I intended to quickly ruffle your feathers because it was such a significant out-of-context 'quote' but you never mentioned it. :p

    I believe we see a lot of westerns and zombie movies for the same reason: they're cheap to make. Some of them can be exceptional and/or fun. I really had good hopes for The Kid.

    IMDb ratings are at least a baseline for expectations. I find that ratings that steadily fall as more people see the movie/show tells an accurate picture of how good something is. At least potentially. My 5.5 rating was meant to say, " not terrible, just not as good as had hoped ". I'll forego any mom/wife/daughter jokes with that...

    My wife loves westerns but more vintage ones, she used to watch them all the time with her dad. I myself am not fond of westerns unless you count Blazing Saddles or The Frisco Kid in that category...

    Fixed!! And don't forget to add one of your joys of life again, and i did understand what you meant on the average going down/settling to 5.5.....
    My kids go to all these different sites to see reviews and shit!!, and you would figure after 600 comments it would be pretty close to accurate, on your flick?? most of the time i don't bother, i download the movie and skim through it to see if i will have any interests in the story line and then save it or chuck it, even the ones that have well known actors i recognize ,but i stay away from all the B horror uploads, i tried watching a few of them and they were so bad i just avoid all of them now.. Halloween 1-2, and Black Christmas would lead my top horror's , and i don't count Blade or Underworld movie series as horror's, but for myself were all really good movies, and recommend all of them if you like that genre...

    PS. Well i just was curios and checked out Solo:A Star Wars Story rating and myself personally it took me a few days to watch it, kept falling asleep, actually thought it was shit!! And that sits at 7.0 with 223,544 which is pretty high ratings. And a for some reason a ton of Movies i see posted/uploaded on Usenet are Netflix originals??. Most of those i find shit as well!!!

    Fairly unknown old Western. Ride Lonesome.





    Also for Westerns, basically anything with Lee Marvin or Burt Lancaster in it.
    It's all Meg's fault.

    You're done at this point.
