Interviews with Director Martin Campbell, Jackie Chan and Pierce Brosnan
Jackie Chan in a serious bit, plus a much better role for Pierce Brosnan than he has had in several recent outings (ex: "Final Score").
Not a movie to Seriously Ponder, but a well put together - even if a bit Grim - film
Came quickly and intact. Great movie at a great price!
I would recommend this to a friend
Rating 5 out of 5 stars with 1 review
When you just want to watch a movie...
As a film, The Foreigner was ok (4 stars at most). But my saga began 2 nights before when I rented the Foreigner off Xbox live... we started watching it and then... buffering... followed by errors... and then getting kicked out of the app... followed by 10 minutes of movie and then more buffering. We made it 30 minutes into the movie before we gave up.
But Jackie had just started taking names and kicking seat warmers. So, good or bad, we had to finish it.
Long story kinda short, we ordered it off BestBuy.com. It was ready in 20 mins. Pickup was a breeze and wham-bam-thank-you-Jackie-Chan, we got to finish the Foreigner in its stated run time. Gold star for BestBuy.
It’s a great story told from the personal experience of Stephen King, himself. He sees Jackie Chan still alive and searching for his purpose in life while attacking the local city natives. It’s a thriller that no stoner should miss!
First things first, if you haven't seen this movie, shame on you. Change that. Improve your life. Jackie boy puts in the work! If you are a JC fan, you will love seeing him in this HARD HITTING ACTION PACKED EMOTIONAL ROLLER COASTER of a film!! Oh I cried. You can bet your sweet bippy I cried. JC puts on a great performance in a more serious role than what you are probably used to seeing out of him. Only down side to this product was that it didn't come with a digital copy and it didn't release in steelbook. SHAME ON YOU BEST BUY!!! But nonetheless, 5 stars baby! 5 stars!
Jackie Chan was so good in this movie. People really need to give this awesome actor more serious roles, because he truly deserve movies like this in his background. He had a lot of fighting scenes but way different than the other movies he has been in.
