It might be too hip for the Academy, but it's certainly in play, judging from the early reviews...
Pulpy, sexy, violent, frazzling bursts of B-movie thrills...awesome trailer.One Cannes darling has already blown away my expectations. Here's hoping that this and the other three can do the same.
Agreed on the former, not so much on the latter (considering my thoughts on The Tree of Life).
One thing this movie looks to be is a film that we people who didn't like The Transporter films will enjoy [I apologize for wanting a little thought in my films <- that was aimed at the people I went to high school with that always gave me grief for saying I didn't like those films]
