Fun film- The Bag Man

By douglasnabors594

Loved the film. Saw it this weekend and it was a fun popped corn movie. What to say? The cast was really fun and used the eclectic cast well. DeNiro, Cusack, Glover.... oh and the guy from Onyx! I love little movies like this that take place in contained spaces. Really forces the filmmakers flex their creative muscles. Enjoyable. I'd give it 8/10.

Fun Movie!

It was actually pretty funny - I thought it would be more of a thriller. Cusack was awesome although there was a lot more violence then I thought. The ending is a big surprise! Worth seeing.

Pretty Good Movie

The Bag Man was a good thriller. I was always wondering what was going to happen next. John Cusack did a good job as the lead. Robert De Niro did a great job as the crime boss. Rebecca De Costa was great. I think she will be around for a while. The movie was entertaining and worth seeing.

Classic De Niro

Loved it! Classic De Niro role as the gangster boss who quotes his college thesis. Loved seeing Jon Cusack as the “Bag Man”, reminded me of when he did Gross Point Blank, but more of a serious take on the part. Why doesn’t he play tough guys more often I wonder? He was really convincing in this part and it was a nice change from the kind of light comedy roles he always seems to play. Anyway, great movie, lots of fun to watch and loved all the bizarre characters who inhabit this little motel. It is a bit dark, in terms of the lighting, but that kind of added to the modern day film noir vibe so it was okay by me.

A Fun Flick

By emilymdevine

Really interesting movie, loved the concept of the “mysterious bag” you don’t know what is in for almost the whole movie. Reminded me of the briefcase in Pulp Fiction and the whole movie had kind of a pseudo-Tarantino feel to it with all the oddball characters in the motel and De Niro as an intellectual gangster. John Cusack was pretty good, as usual. Bit of a strange part for him as I’m used to seeing him in comedies but he was pretty convincing as a tough guy. Maybe not a masterpiece, but it was entertaining and I was never bored.
