    I love how they delivered their arguments and rebuttals with emotion and eloquence. Their courage and persistence really moved me and aspired me. This is a great motivational film.

    Director James Marsh did an excellent job narrating the event and building it to its climax. He succeeded in making it thrilling, suspenseful and enticing throughout its length. You are always eager to find out what happens next.

    It is not one of those comedies that you find yourself rolling on the ground, instead its comical effect only results in smiles and at most few giggles. However, its lighthearted take on serious matters in life makes it almost aspiring.

    Wanted is a movie about pure action, gore and cool ways of killing. It is fast-paced, action begins immediately after the movie starts for few minutes and it just keeps throwing at you more bullets and blood till the end of the movie.

    I don’t think it is an animated version of The Inconvenient Truth. Certainly, it does portrait an abandoned earth, and a survived robot programmed to collect waste, but the movie’s main story or message is not about environment. It is simply a touching story about love and relationship.

    Although the movie is packed with destructive battle scenes, but it feels that the movie rushed into each conflict before the characters were fully developed. Of course, the acting of Edward Norton is always good, but Liv Tyler felt like she was sleepwalking throughout the entire movie.

    The Fall is one of those few movies that managed to achieve excellence in both cinematography and storyline. On top of this, the chemistry of two brilliant leading actors made me impossible to resist from getting involved into the story.

    However, I can sort of see that this can be an entertaining movie for kids, or for those who are fascinated with Chinese martial arts. There are a lot of fancy fightings in the movie. For me, I wish I could just watch the part where Jet Li fights with Jackie Chan, and then simply skip the rest so I can do something else with the time.

    The entire movie felt like a mash-up of segments of different adventure films, except it lacks intensity, thrill and good humor.

    Besides the good actings of the casts, and the unconventional plot, this movie also carries certain depth and some positive messages.
