    Movie: MR&MRS Smith

    So finally saw this movie. after all the reviews from gun forums I guess I expected better. What a disappointment. The gun scenes were just too hokey and the plot was severely lacking.

    The only thing the movie really had going for it was a sex symbol for viewers of either sex. Well, that and the fact that it was one of the few movies that was not a remake.

    OK, those and lots of guns. Otherwise it was pretty flat.

    Oh it had a plot. The CIA or who ever decided that the two hit teams had to go, so it set them against each other. The rest is...fantasy.

    Plots just get in the way of their computer generated "special effects" these days...

    Plots are in cemetaries, not movies these days!
    Most movie prefer fancy computer effects than quality dialogue and plot anymore.

    Oh this movie definitely had a plot. It's called "let's watch Angelina destroy yet another marriage". Climax, yep, girl gets boy!!

    It was ok to me lots of gun play. But the 2 that stand out to me for good gun movies are the rundown and us marshalls. Those were 2 of my favorites. Enjoy the movies folks.

    So i am failing to see the problem here, Angeline can just stand there and do nothing and I am happy

    Although I think she did the sexist pistolreloads as Laura Croft with that funky rig in her backpack

    Of course it had a plot! The producers' plot to get the gullible public to buy theater tickets.

    No offense, Rocky.

    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.
