Okay folks, I'm being serious here and truly intrigued to know why people seem to adore The Rock so much. So I have heard the GB crew praise this film for many years now and to be fair they've recommended some great films I had never got around to watching before, for example I recently checked out Event Horizon and was thoroughly entertained. However, I am baffled by The Rock. I watched the film a few months back and would probably describe it in mere words as "absolute hot garbage" and actually at to turn it off towards the end because I just couldn't stand to watch anymore of it.
Now let me make something clear, I'm most certainly not some snotty movie buff who looks down on any genre of movies and I entirely understand that we all have our unique tastes in what movies we love but I've been baffled by The Rock since watching it a few months back. Did I miss something about the film, some hidden deep message or something. I have considered that I might have already been sickened to death by Michael Bay which meant I went into watching this film with a bad taste in my mouth already but I'd like to think I'd give it the chance to impress me, plus it features Nicolas Cage so there's an added bonus. Yet I couldn't even enjoy it ironically.
Die Hard is kind of stupid but fantastic for being a pure action flick and that's why I love it, so I can enjoy these sorts of films. So what am I missing? I genuine want to know because I think I should give it a second chance.
