I hate when reviewers come on and say that the first set of movies were wack and this new one was the best one ever! - come on dudes how do you work that logic out? How can you not like the first 4 movies in a series and start hyping up a prequel? I see lots of reviewers doing it nowadays, I don't see how you it makes sense. If you know the series and liked the first set of movies, Xmen first class will be as as predictable as it was boring.
I give it a 7 out of 10. There is at most 3 good scenes in the whole movie. If you are a fan of the previous movies and have the money to burn then wathc it otherwise wait until it comes out on cable. Its a good super hero movie, though it starts a bit slow.

The name of the movie may suck but everything else is totally great. If you love impossible stunts, pretty cars, flying over the statue of Jesus Christ in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, then this show will not disappoint. This movie would have been the best in the series except it doesn't have the soundtrack of 2 but it makes up for it in terms of story. 9 out of 10. Excellent. Go watch it in the theater now. Make sure you watch the credits for a bonus scene.

The best movie I've seen so far this year. Good music, good atmosphere, good cinematography, my rating 9 out of 10. Near perfect. And all those people complaining about the ending are simply haters.

Sucker Punch is one of those movies that tries to do something but ends up not really doing anything at all. Maybe it tried to do too much. In 1999 you could fill a movie with tons of CGI graphics and slow motion and the movie would automatically be good. Today you could spend a billion dollars on computer graphics and it would all be for naugh because everybody has seen computer generated dragons and Lords of the Rings and Band of Brothers.
Everything you will see in this movie has been done BEFORE and BETTER in other films. The movie is as predictable as it is an annoying mishmash of other movies. I give it a 6 out of 10. Average movie that tries something new but ends up being more annoying than innovative. Watch it when it comes out on cable.

Better Mus Come covers diverse topics in Jamaican culture, politics and crime without delving too deep into aspects of tribal warfare and gun politics. This however may alienate non-Jamaicans and people who may not have the background knowledge to pick up the hidden and not so hidden messages. That being said, the movie is the better for it. Its lack of hand holding. Clearly it was put together by fresh minds not enslaved by American movie conventions.
Locations are nicely selected and the still shots are bueatiful and poetically done. Everything from the old kerosene oil lantern and tight bell bottom pants, to the wrought iron patio chairs add to authenticity of the period piece.
My rating 9 out of 10. Near perfect. It could only be better if the local theaters didn't split the movie in 2 with a 10 minute intermission. It is well worth the ticket price. Go see it now!
