Okay when I saw this the first time I thought 'Fight Choreography is obvious and poor.'
Second time I saw it I thought 'Wait there are no shaky cams. THERE ARE NO SHAKY CAMS?!'
I'm watching the hell out of this movie.
meh, shakey cams are awesome.
only people with the reflexes of a slug cant follow them.
People who say that are the same people who say 'Oh I have multiple personalities!' and other bullshit like that.
No, it has nothing to do with reflexes. It has to do with knowing which way the camera will go next. And if you are saying you can follow it while not knowing which way the camera is going to go next, then you sir are a liar!
yes, reflexes are some mystical property that are set in stone for every human being on the planet.
Or studies have shown that playing fast action games too much improves reflexes and image recongnition noticably.
OM MAH GAWD, TEH CAMRA WENT LEFT AND T HEN WENT RIGHT RAEL FAST!!!
I have less of a problem with shakey-cam than with quick-cuts and close ups. Otherwise known as the lazy-man's fight choreographer. This movie seems pretty free of that from the trailer.
I am however, and always will be, a prime-time hater of the three-color film. Blue, brown and browner. If I wanted to watch something that looked like it was rendered with the X-Box I'd be playing the damn thing.
So, for those keeping score at home, +1 for what may be all right fights and explosions, +1 for sullen bad-ass Denzel, -3 for overuse of each of the above colors.
Oh go to hell. Shaky cam needlessly obfuscates a scene and is rarely well done.
Other than that, I'm talking about the same shit you get when you're yanked around while being a passenger in a car, while the driver leans into the quick turns easily. Not that hard of a concept to understand.
I never said its never done well. Just rarely.
battlestar galactica, firefly.
you bitch about it like you hate all of it.
Shaky cams are just good for anyone with ADHD, the rest of us prefer movies where we can actually make sense of what is going on.
I will admit that some things when done well can make up for the things done poorly with it...
Shakycam is not one of those things.
those damn kids and their cameras that move too quickly for my caterac ridden eyes.
Seems that trollin and ADHD are a match made in heaven.
I would like this movie if it was done completely in a tableau vivant style, as if we were witness to a living Byzantine mosaic.

The green filter is strong in this one.
Think about it, what was the last Denzel movie without a green filter?

Apocalypse nothing. This was shot on location in modern day Los Banos.

Best mainstream-actor + fallout. Officially excited about this one.

SO SHIT'S ALL FUCKED AND THERE'S THIS GUY AND THESE OTHER GUYS ARE LIKE "LET'S KILL THAT GUY" BUT THAT GUY IS ALL LIKE "NO WAY BRO" AND FUCKS THE OTHER GUYS' RESPECTIVE SHITS UP.
DID I MENTION THAT HE'S TOTALLY QUIET AND BADASS YET FEELS MORALLY CONFLICTED GIVEN THE DIFFICULT SITUATIONS HE ENCOUNTERS AND HAS TO MAKE CHOICES AND SACRIFICES (PROBABLY INVOLVING THE INNOCENT COMING TO HARM) THAT HE DEEPLY REGRETS? WHAT A DEEP BADASS MOTHERFUCKER.
Rating withheld because I can't tell whether this movie will be depressingly bad or refreshingly decent with this amazingly uninformative trailer.
I BRING YOU THIS MESSAGE FROM THE FUTURE!
It FUCKING sucked.

This will not be Children of Men, but I am willing to accept a Beyond Thunderdome quality movie.

Yeah, there's only like 5 billion copies of the Bible floating around out there. It's a very rare book.
