Originally posted by LexusGreat movie. I'm not even a big fan of Nick Cage, but was I the only one who picked up on him trying to do Adam West from the old 60's Batman?
I thought he acted more like an out of breath William Shatner.
With that said, this movie rocked. The girlfriend and I went with friends to see it on Saturday; we were stuck between a few movies, but this won out when we reached an ultimatum: the guys picked the movie, the girls picked the restaurant. Worked incredibly well, as we have fantastic Vietnamese food and caught an awesome movie.
I thought this movie felt like a Tarantino movie - I saw (and loved) the Kill Bill movies, and I thought it was easy to draw parallels between the two. The cinematography in this was brilliant, and it's inspiring me to catch it a few times in the theatres before it comes out on video. Which I'll probably buy the day it's released.
FYI: It airs in the US on G4. http://www.g4tv.com/marvel?subpage=xmen I had much of the similar reaction when I passed it while flipping through the channels - it really is quite well done, I was hooked after the first viewing.
