Dravin (8 out of 10 ) I like these kind of movies. They're full of comedy, action and drama. And because of that you never get bored. You're constantly parked behind the television. The combination of Mel Gibson and Danny Glover couldn't be better. They are a great team for this movie. I have part 1 to 4 in my DVD collection, because it's worth the money for all that laughter and action.
Mrs. Gibson (3 out of 10 ) What in the world happened to this script?
The scenes I loved are missing and scenes that weren't even in the film are included -- where did this "shane black" guy get these ideas?
I want that scene where Mel's crying over his wife's death, holding her picture in his hand and contemplates suicide. He sticks the gun into his mouth and gets ready to pull the trigger. What happened to that scene?
Cut_To (8 out of 10 ) @ Mrs Gibson
This "shane black guy" is the screenwriter - his vision for the movie came FIRST, the visualization on celluloid - the finished movie - came afterward.
Any differences between the movie and the script arise from rewrites after this draft and decisions made by director during the shoot then by editors in the cutting room.
FunnyStuff (9 out of 10 ) Also, not to totally rub it in your face, but the "Shane Black Guy" still stands at the highest paid scriptwriter of all time to boot.
