This movie was so bad..."How Bad Was it?" So Bad I saw the Screen Roll Up and Leave The Theatre.

This movie has the highest percentage of 1-star ratings of any film I've ever seen on Prime. That got me currious. Reading all of the 1-star ratings and I noticed a common thread....BAD, just plain BAD. One reviewer said he only lasted 10 minutes into the movie and had to dump out. That got me even more curious....Now I'm gonna watch to see how far I get before calling it quits.....at 10 seconds I was beginning to feel nauseous. At one minute into it I decided to skip ahead to see if anything became more watchable - nope just one sentence of dialogue and I'm hitting the stop and eject. Disgustingly grotesque.

THIS MOVIE WAS AN OVER THE TOP HOOT ! I PARTICULARLY ENJOYED THE INDIVIDUALITY OF THE LARGER THAN LIFECHARACTERS, PARTICULARLY MALONE'S MOTHER WHO SHOULD HAVE HAD A BIGGER PART. THE ACTION AND SCENES WERE A GOOD USE OF CLICHES WHICH HOLLYWOOD USED OVER MANY
DECADES AND BROUGHT ME FUN ENTERTAINMENT ON ENDLESS LATE NITE MOVIES. I LAUGHED ALOT WATCHING THIS FLICK!

Funny tongue-in-cheek film noir
Verified purchase
Loved the music and the writer, Mark Hosack, hit every trope and cliche a good pastiche should, adding a few twists of his own. If you like noir action thrillers, you'll enjoy how knowledgeable Hosack is of the genre and how skillfully he plays with it. The actors were all great. Always love Ving Rhames. First time I've seen Thomas Jane. Both definitely delivered. Where's the sequel?? Malone must have a fan base waiting.

Weird but ultimately average
Verified purchase
This one was a weird mix of noir with reference to modern day elements like emails in what is supposed to be a 40's style universe. Good performances by much of the cast, though French Stewart of all people was probably the best as a sleezy nightclub performer. It could have been a lot better, but it was decent enough to watch once.

getting shot is alright if you're still alive

2.35:1/5.1 I like surroundsound. I like the action and violence. I like the fast automobile scenes. I like the shooting. I like the use of weapons like knives and swords. I like the punching and kicking. I like the assault by fire. I want to watch this sort of entertainment on my television.

Give 'Em Hell Malone on Blu Ray
Verified purchase
I first saw Give 'Em Hell Malone on Standard DVD & than again on Blu Ray with a Clearer picture & Sound with Thomas Jane playing the part as Malone a private detective with a reputation for being tough , so tought can't be killed sent to retrieve a briefcase from a seedy hotel and walks right into a trap set by the city's corrupt & most notorious crime boss with bullets flying fists & blood as he fights Boulder(Ving Rhames) and an army of gangsters to protect the briefcase contents and a bombshell client who's more trouble than shes worth (Elsa Pataky)with action and a touch of dark humor and at the end says to be continued so theres goin to be a sequel in the near future as for the movie three and a half out of five , I picked it up for a good price and probably still can so value for money four out of five , not a bad show .

Likable Actors, Terrible Writing
Verified purchase
The director of this movie clearly liked 'Noir' movies. But I don't think he understood the style on anything more than a superficial level. It was like a crayon version of a masterpiece painting. It had all the cliches you'd expect (hardbitten detective, mysterious client, vicious henchmen, etc.) but none of the substance (actual drama or clever plot). The actors were giving it all they had, but you can only do so much with a script that felt like it was written by a twelve-year-old.
