You know, Stephen Lang just does not get enough good roles in movies. The first scene where he determines to walk through walls is the finest bit of comedic acting I’ve seen in a long time.
And of course, McGregor, Clooney and Jeff Bridges should be teamed up in everything. Who would have ever believed that Mr. Sex Symbol George Clooney would turn out to be a brilliant comedy artist?
My one complaint is that I am absolutely sick to death of every friggin’ movie making the soldiers, sailors and people of the United States out to be ignorant, trigger happy rubes with a constant roiling undercurrent of self-loathing and disrespect for others. Just once I’d like to see a good, entertaining flick where there’s no self-doubt, no introspective questioning, just a good, old-fashioned can-do spirit and a genuine desire to do right by one’s fellow soldiers and the people we’re fighting for.
We do an awful lot of dying for others and never seem to get the credit. That’s messed up.
