I think everyone in the known universe is going to review this thing.I have two words for you all: Ben Affleck, That is the first, last and only reason I saw this movie and the only reason I liked it. I think Bruce Willis' career should have ended about 10 years ago (or whenever "Moonlighting" ended) and as for Liv Tyler, well frankly, I think she looks like a colt. Yes, a horse. I am kinda fond of Billy Bob Thorton, though.
Now, back to Ben. I think that Rose, Benjamin (my boyfriend, not Affleck), and I would probably get into a fist fight if we got a chance to get the "He's Doing It For Her" poster and we could only have one among the three of us. I really don't care if A.J. should have died about 4 times when he didn't. Ben kept me latched on to the script, implausible as it might be.
As for the plot, yes, it's completely ridiculous, but it sure is fun. I predicted the ending about 25 minutes into the flick, but it was still neat seeing it played out. I'll admit, I cried, but I also cried at "Titanic" so I'm not a good judge of such things. Sometimes I thought that the characters should have been a bit more developed. When it came to a lot of the crew, I just wasn't very invested in what happened to them.
More lauds for Ben: if I was an up and comer looking for a real breakout piece (keep in mind he did this before "Good Will Hunting" was released), a big-budget action flick might be just what the doctor ordered. It helped him get out of Matt Damon's shadow a bit. Kudos.Ok, the film is complete fluff. It's fun, though. Lots.
