Normally, I'ld have high expectations for a Eastwood movie, but for this, they were rather low. It was a little bit boring, I have to admit, but in the end I felt quite satisfied. It was not a bad movie at all, slow yes, but very interesting. Although it is a shame you don't get to know the characters better, because you don't really get a feeling of compassion. My two cents.
What starts out as a promising comedy/action movie, soon becomes a Seth Rogen self-aggrandizement. His character is so annoying and self-centered that you can't help but hate this guy. The plot is stupid, implausible and has more holes than Swiss cheese. Not even Christoph Waltz can save this abomination. This movie is not so bad it's good, it is just bad. My two cents.
Lots of puke, lots of pain, lots of feces and hell of a lot of fun. What can I say, it's Jackass all over again and it's pretty damn entertaining. If you are easily disgusted on the other hand, stay away from this movie. My two cents.

Not your average terrorist movie, that's for sure. More like a merciless intimate play that leaves you horror-struck betweenwhiles. Be prepared for some explicit torture and inhumanity but the reward is a more-than-solid story and the question who's the relentless terrorist after all. My two cents.
What starts out as a promising plot soon turns into a series of longueurs spiced up with some decent action. Sure, the movie picks up speed towards the end, the story is all in all pretty good, the characters are actually quite credible, but 20 - 30 minutes less would have done the movie good. My two cents.
