What makes me laugh about this thread is the number of people who will not be seeing this film or taken2 because the critics don't like it.
Watch it for yourselves and make your own mind up.
No. Absolutely not. I'll make my own mind up, that's for sure, but if the majority of critics give a reasoned argument why it's not worth paying good money to see, then I won't pay good money to see it. If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck then I don't need to watch it for an hour and a half to work out whether it's a duck or not.
There are plenty of films which I would never have gone to see without critical recommendations, so it works both ways. I take the critics with a pinch of salt (particularly Bradshaw) but overall they make a positive contribution to the debate.
