Watched A History of Violence tonight. ECK! Movie sucked. Don't pay your money to see it. I expected so much more and was terribly disappointed. The dialogue was stiff and so corny. The scenes were pushed. The actors reminded me of a high school theatre program. ECK!! ECK!! ECK!!
The best parts of the film. The two scenes when Tom (Viggo Mortenson) and Edie (Maria Bello) have sex. First the 69 on their bed. HOT! And the hardcore fuck on the stairs. Better than some of the porn out there. And the visit to Richie (William Hurt) was ok only because Hurt's reactions were the only sense of acting in the film.
Can I say that Viggo...poor Viggo...had problems with the dialogue. Or maybe the script just SUCKED. But I swear I thought he seemed more like a mentally challenged adult rather than a former mobster. AND when he gets an injury to the foot and runs.....I swear I was watching a man with slight mental retardation.
Eck! Eck! Eck!
