I agreed that this movie is just an average TV Movie, save your money
From the long review that posted recently after someone mentioned about those 5 stars scores are too unreal like advertising, now it is really obvious that the guess from someone is right. Finally, a long review appeared which try to explain how good this movie is, it is so detailed that I don't think it was posted by the real viewers who did watch this movie, it should be more likely coming from the group of people who make this movie. Well done, guys! Hope everyone will believe what you are saying. I was intended to see this movie when I watched the movie trailer, but now, I am more believe that it will make me very disappointed if I am going to. Sorry to say that!
this move was very good!! Glad I went to see it!!
An average,at best,T.V.movie.
Anyone with the faintest interest in seeing a rated R (for violence) movie called American Assassin- see it. Depending on your expectations, it will either meet or exceed them. Here is what the film does surprisingly well. First, it shows far more effectively than does the book how Rapp goes from innocent terrorism victim to someone so special and talented he comes to the attention of the CIA. Second, the story craftily balances clarity and sophistication, rare for a fast paced, violent thriller. The plot has no gaping holes and makes sense. But, you do have to pay close attention to the “talky’ scenes and make some basic logical connections to accurately grasp the plot. Third, the movie leaves you with a surprising amount of food for thought. After the movie my friend and I has fun discussing some of the themes-Survivor’s guilt, revenge, redemption, the use and abuse of power, and the various natures of service and sacrifice to name a few.
If you watch the trailer, this movie should be a good one, but then you look at the reviews, most of them look like advertising, the wording is so commercial that they don't look like real reviews from real viewers, but just an additional advert to tell people how good this movie is, it really made a negative impact to bring people to watch this movie. I hope this advice will draw the attention of those parties who want to make this movie rating on the top of everything.
I have no idea why this movie got negative reviews from critics. I had a blast. Fantastic action, reasonable story. Stop the over analyzing and trying to make every plot point make 100% sense. Just enjoy the action.
This action movie is very entertaining and of course lots of violence along with fast car racing. It had it all. Also, it seems that we may have a new Jason Bourne for future movies.
Very exciting movie. Liked the interaction between Keaton and obrien! Well worth seeing!
Awesome face paced action flick.
Exciting from start to finish.
