That's what I'm feeling.

Bruce Willis isn't funny, either; He's a dooshbag; He was the worst in Pulp fiction, and the worst in most things. So i'm unsure what to think.

I'll go and see it, but I can't decide if it'll be good- I think it's a lame idea, to be honest.

Mirren was decent, Karl Urban was superb, Willis was shit. The guy can't act and ruins anything he's in.
I'm probably gonna see it, and think the same Jez. :\

But you're probably more critical of Acting than I am; After all, you're an actor.. I'm repping a C Grade GCSE in drama; So you know what your talking about more than me.

The guy who wishes he never sold all his warhammer. Haha. Such is life.

Hell, Jez is more critical about everything, period.

The movie is fun, funny and entertaining. It isn't an academy award winning drama or an epic film meant to provoke deep feelings or emotions. It is worth seeing, in the theater or by renting it. Either way, it is a good action flick that is a good watch all the way through.

I watched this movie last night and thought it was very funny. Not the best action movie for 2010, but worth a watch none the less.

I personally don't take to the assumption that just because someones an actor that they can decide whether someones a good actor or not more than any other person. But meh, still agree that Willis wasn't the best part of the film. Urban was excellent so was Malkovich. The film suprised me alot, i was expecting it to be utterly shit, but it was actually pretty good and funny, worth seeing.

As for Willis being a shit actor......Die Hard. John Mclane is simply epic

It was decent. I don't regret watching it. John Malkovich is a pretty funny actor.

Having been on set with Sean Bean, Danny Dyer, Will Houston, Stephen Walters, Izabella Miko, Dominic Brunt, Micheal Fassbender, James McAvoy and Madonna (who seemed to like me ) I think I'm a pretty good judge.

Bruce Willis is good at playing Bruce Willis - thats all.

I'm not an actor btw, I haven't had any formal training. I just have a fucking stupid amount of self confidence and front - plus a lucky break. Directors like me

I'm not saying your not a good judge of actors, but actors are much a personal thing anyway. True some actors are clearly awful no matter what they try, and on the flipside some are universally accepted as amazing. But i just don't think it's one of those things where being one or close to one automatically makes someone judgement better than others. Like i said peoples opinions on an actors talent is a personal thing.
