I love Bruce Willis. The Die Hards (even the bad ones) are among my favorite movies. In fact, I love all the actors here and the preview looked lighthearted, action packed, and fun. I like watching great actors have a good time with something easy and delightful. But I started this and spent ten minutes watching a poorly made rom com set up, waiting for something to happen in any way related to the movie I wanted to see. Then, when the action did finally start, it devolved into an attempt at a darkly comedic romance story - bruce willis kidnaps mary louise parker and keeps her mouth covered in duct tape for a prolonged time while they both play this off for laughs. Instead of "disturbing but it works" romance, which is certainly possible starting with such a premise, the lightheartedness just makes it creepy and unfunny. I'm waiting for the "master team assembles and we meet our characters" montage and I get gross morgan freeman sexually harassing a woman working as a caretaker in his residential living / retirement center, in what the filmmakers establish as a repeat pattern, not a one-off incident. Really gross. I'm just sitting here thinking when do I get to see helen mirren? Is it worth waiting? ultimately, I think it's not. Just watch the preview - that was funny enough - and then maybe watch the (many) other, better productions each one of these performers has starred in before, for many of them quite recently. I don't understand the reviewers who liked it, likening it to die hard, matrix, john wick, taken, or the like. The production is self-impressed, with nothing but un-clever jokes that rely on gross assumptions for humor. It's totally possible to make a comedic romance and/or an action movie that hinges on a dysfunctional and dark series of events; not all movies have to have elevated values; but every. single. joke. here punches down and left me feeling icky and unimpressed. I don't understand.
