2:27 Guns on the breakfast table, not sure I’d allow that.
4:09 He set his alarm at five for a ten am start?
9:19 He’s potentially the scariest boss in existence.
10:22 Rolling the window doesn’t mean anything these days, with electric buttons.
14:13 He doesn’t appear to have a siren on his fancy car.
17:08 See, that’s fine, I wouldn’t want to work with him anyway!
27:38 He’s just going to watch him?
35:49 “I said a wolf, not a rooster.”
37:00 D, O, double G!!
45:03 And Macy Gray! Weirdo musical film.
49:45 “Don’t come in this area with anything less than a platoon.” Last place on earth I’d go.
58:32 The puzzle factory is a new term for it.
1:05:10 I am properly confused now.
1:15:23 Not sure I like any of the people in this movie.
1:19:58 People calling other people ‘son’ is very patronising. Unless they are actually their son, I guess.
1:27:02 Why has he left him?
1:33:37 Aww, he has to take the bus!
1:42:24 People always end up on the roof. I have never been on a roof in my life.
1:47:44 All those people watching, I’d be hiding in my house!
1:51:50 Comparing yourself to King Kong is a bit of a stretch.
1:56:27 That last line, a bit of recall, was the best bit of the film.


This is another film that Mr C has seen and liked, which he wanted us to watch. Also, we saw a trailer for Brooklyn’s Finest which is a relatively new film by the same director, and which Mr C suggested was exactly the same movie over again. So, we thought we’d watch this first before seeing what that one was like.

I wanted to like it, but I didn’t. I got very confused in the middle, so that I didn’t know who was good, who was bad, what was going on, and what the entire point was. I didn’t particularly like any of the people, and it all felt a bit weird. It had some good lines, but went on too long. Not a fan, I’m afraid.
