Average User Score: 6.0Apr 29, 2011I'm sure that this movie was misrepresented as a 'thriller' to get the Fast & Furious or Oceans 11 crowd into the theater. That would explain most of the negative reviews from users who don't ever have a single introspective thought. I guess I would be upset too, if I was expecting The Transporter 3, and instead found myself watching something way above my intellectual depth.
This movie is excellent -- as long as you aren't the type who falls asleep if there isn't an explosion on the screen every 10 minutes.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.5Nov 6, 2010This movie gets a few points in my book for amazing special effects, attempting (ironically) an environmental/anti-corporate message, and a handful of exciting scenes. It is otherwise a trite and pointless exercise in box-office money making. Not only is it a pastiche of many other (better) films, but it is dumbed-down and toothless. The black and white morality, hokey 'spiritualism', and PG romance set to horrible adult contemporary music, screams "Disney!".
On a purely technical note, some of the 'camera' work is suspect, especially those 'quick-zooms' or whatever they call them.
I do not recommend this film to anyone above the age of ten.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.4Oct 19, 2010First movie I've seen in 3-D since Captain EO, fifteen years ago (that may not be true). The combination of slow-motion photography and 3-D is a match made in heaven. There is a reason (other than perverse irony) that this film was shown at the NY MOMA.
These are the kind of things I would do if I had a slow-motion camera. I think that is, and has always been, the deciding factor in whether a person enjoys watching Jackass or not. Are these the kinds of things you and your friends do, or dream about doing? No. Then stick to Eat Pray Love.
For the rest of us, Jackass 3-D is a new installment of hanging-out-with-old-friends and (unlike real life) it is in 3-D!… Expand
Average User Score: 6.1Oct 19, 2010Absolutely nothing of value in this pile of dull, cliched, vignettes.
There is no social commentary, no examination of character, nothing.
It isn't even slightly humorous or "edgy" (except for the word **** in the title).
Speaking of the title, it doesn't even deliver what it advertises. Other than a few "boob-shots" (and not even from the hottest girl), one can find more sexuality in a deodorant commercial.
Skip this film, watch a full-length porn (for free) on your favorite porn website, for equally good storytelling, and see young people [actually] ****ing.… Expand
Average User Score: 5.8Oct 19, 2010I highly recommend this film to anyone who isn't upset by depictions of some of the uglier things that happen in real life, or who aren't so far detached from themselves that they can't actually feel the killer that we bury deep inside ourselves, or are so dishonest that they can't admit that it is there. If you can't identify with Casey Affleck in this film you are either a liar, a coward, or you suffer from psychosis.
The killer in me is the killer in you.
The execution of the ending (though not the events) left a little to be desired, and the special effects in the final scene were low quality.… Expand
