So, this movie was a great hit for Hollywood. That's the biz they are in. getting people to the theater. The issue comes in when the public believes this movie was real. or the public begins to "relate" to it and react because of it. Now, onSo, this movie was a great hit for Hollywood. That's the biz they are in. getting people to the theater. The issue comes in when the public believes this movie was real. or the public begins to "relate" to it and react because of it. Now, on some levels it was a good scary live right movie or you will die. Good stuff; BUT, now it had almost nothing to do with the real AIDS campaign. Sure, they made sure to drop a few key words to wet ones appetite, BUT, it still sent the following false messages: a.) Some big things aren't about money. b.) Everything IS about money. c.) Aids was a big deal in places other than San Francisco. d.) People can have heart attacks and walk out of a hospital 30 minutes later just fine, (if your matt m. famous movie actor). 4.) An average person can treat legal, law enforcement, and medical folks violently and not be put in jail, or brought up on charges. If I shot a shotgun at a door anywhere, there would be cops there in 3 minutes. So, what now? On to the good stuff. The acting was marginal and seemed fake and felt like they were reading the script in rehearsal. Am I jealous of what these actors get paid to do this stuff? Your dam right I am. Do I believe that anyone with "talent" can "make it" if they try really hard? No I don't. Can they cut the scenes any shorter? More later. Expand
