Painkillers online movie review - i wasn't expecting this much quality and suspense!
Wow What a great movie. I was expecting a movie about a war mission, and boy was i wrong. I did not know anything about this movie at all going in and 9 times out of 10, I wind up clicking on the next movie on the list.
Not this time, I was blown away. The sci-fi aspect was woven in perfectly, the scenes were perfect. The only weak part was the believability that these people shot all their ammo just straight ahead and not like in a firefight. Now, don't take this the wrong way, I grew up with weapons in the country, so don't let this deter you, just be aware, it is sorta funny, luckily,it is only a few scenes, so no big deal, still done well though. I would call this a B movie that turned into a great movie, so just sit back and enjoy.
The big surprise for me, was the dad from family ties was one of the main characters, and I always enjoy his performance and this was among his best. great editing and fairly believable and very emotional with some gripping scenes. I want to tell you about them sooooooo bad, but it might detract from the suspense and who done it. The amnesia bit at the first was a perfect setup and not letting you really know what is going on was perfectly done. It was almost like Hitchcock would have done it. cud dos(sp?) to the crew and producers. nice job
