Movies Fantasy Island

Recommended Posts

While it may well suck, I must admit I am looking forward to seeing this one...what is shocking is that I just checked on my AMC app and 4 of the showing for Friday are already sold out!

It's co-written and directed by Jeff Wadlow, who gave us such cinematic treasures as Cry Wolf, Never Back Down, Kick-Ass 2, True Memoirs of an International Assassin, and Truth or Dare. Never Back Down and Kick-Ass 2 were solid enough, the other 3 movies are outright garbage so I woudn't expect much from this unfortunately.

I have to say I rather enjoyed the movie. Yes, it was more or less stupid, but since I wasn't expecting much, I wasn't disappointed. 

 

Was it on par with Never Back Down and Kick-Ass 2, or worse?

Never Back Down is a classic. 

 

Agreed - he's made two good movies for sure. The rest of Jeff Wadlow's movies are garbage, that's why I'm curious . . .

Djimon Hounsou GOAT

 

Djimon Honsou truly is GOAT. Never Back Down is a fun movie. When people call me pretentious for liking Only God Forgives or Mandy, I'm like: "bitch, I love Bad Boys II and Never Back Down, good movies are good movies".

Never Back Down was fun but it was part of that brief movement where MMA movies became a thing. That and Warrior came out which I would say is arguably better. :p

Never saw Never Back Down and I can't remember anything about KA2 other than hating Jim big time. Don't get me wrong, Fantasy Island is definitely not what you'd call a good movie, but I still managed to enjoy it. Like I said, I went in with almost no expectations of it being a good movie and managed to enjoy it, but then I often enjoy cheesy horror flicks. And as a fan of the original show I did appreciate the subtle nods to the original.

Warrior is a lot better than Never Back Down, but David Mamet's Redbelt is better than them both.
