I was not familiar with the true story that this was based on. I honestly thought it was going to be a simple kidnapping and extortion story - bad guys get caught - justice is served.
Next time - I will be doing a bit more checking before I head out to the cinema. Because - I definitely did not get what I was expecting.
I really don't blame the actors (other than for going along with it). But, a lot of stuff could have been toned down and the writing needed some help.
I really liked the cast - I think they did a pretty decent job considering what they were working with.

This movie is factually based, and the facts are sad and unfunny. Everyone overacts and they act stupidly. It's quite violent, too. Wait for the DVD.

I don't know what everybody is talking about, this was a funny movie. I considered it to be more of a dark comedy, you'll know what I mean when you watch it. Secondly If you see it's rated R then its a Rated R film, don't expect it to be good for your kids to watch then complain about the movie being a horrible flick.

This movie seemed pretty good on the promos and since it was the only movie coming out this weekend with a couple of big name actor I decided to go with my girlfriend. I was instantly disappointed. The narration was laughable. The plot was stupid and it got worse and worse as the movie went on. I wanted to walk out 30 minutes into it but said maybe it will get better. It didn't! Worse movie I have seen this year and I have seen some crappy ones. Very disappointed in "The Rock" & Mark Wahlbergh for even letting this movie go on screen after they finished it and watched it. DO NOT GO. STAY AWAY! I love the actors but this was not a good movie for them.

One i thought it would be a just comedy, but it is a dark comedy with a great story that makes it awesome. Obviously this is rated R so don't take kids or if you aren't the type of person who likes a stupid comedy such as a Will Ferrell or Hangover. I Love this movie because it has alot of action and comedy that keeps me entertained from the first 45 min to the end i want to know whats gonna happen next! Go if you want to be entertained yes it's a true story but remember it's a movie and we go there to be entertained no serious all the time.
