X-3 No spoilers

X-3 is an object lesson of what happens when you have a massive budget, the best special effects possible, a top-notch cast of truly excellent actors...

And then you give the script to be written by to be written by the same team that wrote "XXX: State of the Union" "Elektra" and "Inspector Gadget." People who, I might add, have no love of the franchise, no respect for the characters, and as much talent as a whisky-besotted Irish bonobo ape. I'm not sure if there is such a thing, but were there, I feel confident it could write a script just as good as these two buffoons did.

Then, hand it over to the director who did "Rush Hour 2" - and what do you get? A visually impressive piece of crap.

How do these hacks get handed such a hot property? Sweet cheese, I could have written a better script, and so could my cat.

Let's just pretend it didn't happen.

Vico?
I can't believe you actually allowed that comment to appear. It's even worse than I thought it would be (adding even more ranting and hurling more insults to the original text). And, he had the nerve to post anonymously! Personal attacks from a complete stranger who got his panties in a twist over your *opinion*!

Vico sounds like someone from over in Ran-land, is that what you mean?

I read your reviews of "A.I." and "I, Robot" and they were both invaluble to me in deciding whether to see the films. After seeing both films (which I wouldn't have seen if it hadn't been for you) which I enjoyed thoroughly, I decided that your opinion of films was something I should seek out in the future. I respect your opinions on so many things, and found we share the same ones when it comes to the aforementioned films.

Gawd, I'm so sorry that I exposed you to this crazy person.

Re: Vico?
Oh, why should I worry about ridiculous comments like these? I mean, it's one thing if one wants to have a substantive conversation. But, if someone just takes pusillanimous swipes at me behind the cover of anonymity (and in a height of irony, claiming to do so to protect himself from anonymous insults!) it makes him look like a fool if I'm willing to engage him like an adult.

But, by the by, I'd hardly call this a "review" of X-3. I was just disappointed in the movie, and venting my spleen. There were good parts to it, I just figured it was a given anyone who's a fan of the comics would go see the movie , no matter how bad it is.

"review"
Uh... I knew this: "I was just disappointed in the movie, and venting my spleen." ;) I never considered it a review or called it one. :)

`Saw the film and I'm *extremely* glad that I stayed for the bit after the final credits.
