Is this movie any good?

It's directed by Jee-woon Kim.

I met him once; he is a lot shorter than one would expect, and he wears a lot of makeup, off set.
He has more money that he will ever need, and the fact that he is acting again just means that he loves the work.
On a related note, Stallone made a movie called "Oscar" a while back. It is a delightful movie, and it is a farce. It was the very last thing that one would expect "Rambo" to star in, but it was obvious that he was having a great time.

Oscar is actually pretty good.

Damn, it's not a Netflix streamer.

"Oscar is actually pretty good."

Oh, don't get me started...
Damn, I'm started.

Oliver Reed in "The Jokers". Alan Rickman in "Truly, Madly, Deeply". Anthony Quinn in "High Wind To Jamaica". Maggie Smith in "Hook". Charles Bronson in "Lola".
Each one is a lovely performance, by a lovely actor, in an thoroughly unexpected role. I just wish that I was old enough to have seen my Dad play in the Abbey Theatre, where he did O'Neill and Shakespeare, when not otherwise occupied by wooing my Mom. They were both very young, and very much in love.

Just how is ztirffritz pronounced?

I also enjoyed Oscar. It was not well received at the theaters but liked it. Just a funny movie.

Yeah. But it's no "Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot!"

"Yeah. But it's no "Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot!""

Ugh.
Most actors have had really bad roles, in really bad movies.

Olivier had to live down "The Betsy", Taylor had "Butterfield 8", and Burton had "Hammersmith Is Out!".

In fact, Burton had so many bad movies that it is hard to remember what a terrific actor he was.
But he redeemed himself in "1984". He put a few decades of personal pain into those amazing eyes of his, for just a short performance. In fact, well, in my opinion, that version of "1984" is one of the best movies of the last fifty years. It even had a great little bit for Cyril Cusack, one of my father's mentors during his Abbey days.
