Saw this on On Demand service a few weeks ago and still having the creeps from it:


Some good motorcycling shots and Scarlett Johansson. What more can you want?

I recommend Guy Ritchie's "Snatch" If anyone here can understand Brad Pitt's lines without subtitles, you must be terminally Irish.

Also "Spy" with Melissa McCarthy and Jason Statham, and "Homefront" also a Statham vehicle. "Heat" with MM and Sandra Bullock is pretty hilarious, too.

Saw this movie at the theater when I was a young boy. Loved it! Have seen it a few times since and it’s still great. A real feel good flick that brings back good memories.

Even as a dyed in the wool Brit, as much as I enjoy a good Statham movie, after years of watching 'classic' Hollywood leading men from the 30's onwards I do find an English accent at odds in the new 'action blockbusters' somehow. Always (to me) sounds contrived and not quite right.
As for Michael Caine..... ouch!!!!

Well the Bond series has always had a UK based lead actor , Bond would have to considered block busters , have seen them all , other that the Dalton episodes all have been very entertaining !

True.... though I still can't think of one Brit would could lend gravitas to that fabled (and non existent, sadly) line from 'The Duke' : "Get off your horse and drink your milk!"

I friend of mine used to quote Hollywood one liners like that in different English accents. The ones that made me cry with laughter were when he did them in a Brummie accent. Try it. I guarantee it’ll crack you up...

Great movie except for K.Spacey once his true colours exposed not much work for him … Harvey K. is always interesting

I didn't really expose my grandchildren to R. Dogs...I just make the claim it to irritate their father.

What? Are you saying you'd watch the Lazenby Bond over Dalton? That's pretty shocking!

The highlight of GH’s one and only was his wife Diana Rigg …. I see the film is considered not bad in hindsight …. just kinda forgettable for me other the lovely DR ….
