The Driftless Area online movie review - How come everybody says they saw the film at Tribeca or something ...when they saw a bootlegg
Oh I saw this movie on the dark side of the moon when my wife and i were on Holiday .. Okay buddy . You saw a on line bootleg copy at home while you eat a plate of frozen fish sticks straight out of the microwave .
And you didn't have any fish sauce so you used ketchup .He teams up with his old OPs partner that don't give him a choice and they start cleaning the streets, bad cops, and higher ups in the process of getting the ones that actually did the crime against his wife. You find out there was more too it, so it explains why it was over the top for a simple robbery.
I for one enjoyed the byplay between John and Christopher's characters. Reminiscent of Tango and Cash except you know they have a brotherhood-of-arms camaraderie for each other.
The thing that makes it different is the ending. So many times in vengeance films the good guys temporarily gone bad have to die for not doing things the legal ways. It's like Hollywood way of not encouraging vengeance as if we aren't smart enough to know it's a movie. This movie knows we get it, so I was pleased with the ending.
As far as John Travolta's wigs I don't know why he feel the need at this point in his career. I think he was sexy as all get out in "From Paris With Love" with the bald head and goatee but, that's my thing. If you have a head full of hair that's great. If not embrace the bald or close cut look with pride because that's sexier than toupee or wigs. Balding hasn't stopped Christopher from being sexy. E...v...e...r.
