I must admit that when I saw this trailer I was essentially thinking “Yeah, I’m going to skip this one.” I mean really, it doesn’t even look like it has a plot.
It reminds me of a video game Army of two
Oh…no…I…I can’t. I just…I can’t.
… so the movie is about evil brown people who kidnap and torture a pretty white, blonde lady… and her druggie boyfriends go and rescue her…
And they’re wearing cheap Luchadore masks… what…?
you know if you reword your post you get the plotline of the silent movie “The Birth of a Nation”
Of course, pretty white blond lady doesn’t do any gang thing in White People Gang while Evil PoC Lady is the boss of Evil Brown Gang. And since she’s such a widdle good woman, the obvious thing is to use her to get at the men! That’s all what women are good for.
And a drugging scene which a look a little too rapey. By an Evil Brown Person too!
“a little too rapey:
Let me put it this way: you’re right to think that about it.
Gotta be honest. I saw it (for er, free-ish).
*runs and hides*
*peeks from corner*
That being said, I watched it from a more subversive POV, one where Elena Sanchez (Salma Hayek) was the main character, and those two White dudes and their girlfriend were fucking up her life. She reminded me a whole lot of Isabella Cordova.
I suppose an argument could be made about going to see the film solely for the awesome that is Salma Hayek and Benicio Del Toro.
Well, Benicio Del Toro is directing Idris Elba in The Pacific, a modern day Godzilla/giant monster movie, and he did some great stuff in Blade 2.
Here’s to hoping that Idris doesn’t die a stupid death in that movie like he did in Prometheas.
Do you mean Guillermo del Toro?
… DOH! >_<
Yeah… my bad.
I saw that preview in the theater and was like…SSDD. WWF, also. Not spending my hard-earned ducks.
Just the fact that Taylor Kitsch is in it, and it isn’t called Friday Night Lights, is a good indicator that it will suck. But Benicio del Toro, Selma Hayek, and Demián Bichir? It’d be very sad if they are in a movie that is as exploitive as this looks.
