This actually looks extremely watchable.
Also, it has Mary-Louise Parker.

To quote Warren Ellis from his blog:
The film has the same DNA. It retains bits that are very clearly from the book, as well as, of course, the overall plotline. But it is, yes, lighter, and funnier. And if anyone has a real problem with that, I say to you once again:
Helen Mirren with a sniper rifle.
I mean, if you don’t want to see a film with Helen Mirren with a sniper rifle, I’m not sure I want to know you.
Brian Cox too? I'm excited.
I've never read the comic. Can someone who has weigh in? How's it fare against Ellis' other work?
Ha. Looks great.
It's got a pretty impressive cast, even has Dr. McCoy Jr.
Trailer was awesome. Helen Mirren with Submachine gun and smacking people around. What's not to love?
I had no idea who Helen Mirren was. Had to Google her.
What the what? Some people just have good genetics.
How does one not know who Helen Mirren is? Anyway, yes, she has aged quite well. And she's not afraid to get naked and prove it.
This comes out tomorrow and I already have my tickets! Can't wait!
Saw a screening tonight, and it was more fun than I expected.
It's good. Worth a watch.
I thought this was great fun. John Malkovich is such a loon. Also, Helen Mirren in an evening dress firing a heavy machine gun. All the actors involved had to have had a great time filming it.
Based on the positive reviews here I'll probably go see the movie this weekend.
saw it with the wife last night and we both loved it. Lots of fun, several badass scenes, and you can tell tell everyone involved enjoyed themselves. There were lots of funny moments, but watching John Malkovich bring the crazy was awesome.
Just got back. Movie was crazy awesome popcorn fun.
Somewhat of a side note, but wtf is it about Helen Mirren that makes her so damn sexually attractive? Seriously, I'm 45 and wouldn't hesitate to jump her bones and I know of no other woman who's 60+ I'd say the same over. Hell, I could be 35 and would feel the same.
Going tonight, a bit excited after seeing crap such as Jonah Hex and the Expendables.
Fun movie - lots of ludicrous action that somehow doesn't feel totally unbelievable at the time. It's not as easy to see Willis as a retiree as it is for Malkovich or Freeman.. he's just not a wrinkly as as the plot seems to want him to be.
I liked that his love interest (Parker) was cast as a 40-something instead of trying to shoehorn in, say, Megan Fox or another Hottie of the Moment and trying to concoct some hokey May/December chemistry. Karl Urban was great as bad guy whose sole purpose seemed to be getting his ass kicked by Willis every few scenes.
The plot is nothing to write home about, nor will there be any surprises for anyone over the age of 12. That said, the pacing was good and the dialog was pretty decent.
Good date movie if you're old enough to remember the Cold War. Solid rental if not.
Malkovich steals the show. Everytime he's on the screen, you're either laughing or waiting anxiously to laugh for what you know must be coming. This was a real fun movie. The chemistry between the stars was spot on.
Curiously, the theater I was in last night was 80% people over the age of 40. My two teens loved it and it'll be an instant buy when it comes out on DVD for me. Just too much damn fun.
I had to google Helen Mirren too, and I have to admit, she does have ridiculous breasts.
