Editorial Reviews

Meet Bill (Aaron Eckhart) - a doormat if ever there was one. A man reduced to a mere accessory to his family by working a dead end job at his father-in law s bank and arguing about his overindulgent love for chocolate with his wife Jess (Elizabeth Banks) who is loathe to explain her friendship with the local news anchorman (Timothy Olyphant). But Bill's fate begins to change when he becomes mentor to a self-assured boy (Logan Lerman) who engineers Bill s recovery with the help of a cute lingerie sales girl named Lucy (Jessica Alba). Together, the trio confronts Bill s hapless life with humor and energy while forcing him to capture his dream of being financially independent and self-confident. MEET BILL is a film about what it means to let go of your inhibitions and find the path you re destined for.

The DVD is not up to the same standards as the VHS tape. It is shorter and is only pan and scan. Usually movies for rental are P&S. Collectors of movies want widescreen and full length (at least what was seen on the big screen).I liked this movie but I am [not happy] that they would release a less that optimal version on DVD. The VHS version is only P&S but atleast the whole movie is there.

What a disappointment it is to hear that this, a 2.35:1 film will be released as a pan and scan DVD. And by Fox of all studios. This is a cool Dolph movie that had a great atmosphere to it but you won't feel it in the cropped confines of 1.33:1. Why they would remaster it with a Dolby 5.1 soundtrack and not even bother to present it in it's OAR is beyond me.

Certainly for the Dolph fans out there, this one is a green light. Dark, moody almost noir like in its style. Haunting soundtrack, good visuals (aside from a fairly dodgy CGI helicopter) and Dolph is in good form. But he does appear to be doing it easily. Personally, it's one of his best.

I liked the story line. Everyone can relate to feeling a little shmucky at times... and Aaron Eckhart plays it great. I really enjoyed the story line where he slowly starts regaining control of his life. Really enjoyed it.

Meet Bill is the story of Bill (played by Aaron Eckhart), a man who is quickly realizing that his wife, weight, job and life are all out of control. His wife is cheating, his stomach is growing, his job is pointless, and he wants more out of life than what he has.

During a random encounter, Bill meets high school student known only as The Kid (played by Logan Lerman), and it is here that the story takes off.

Meet Bill starts off with a bang. We are instantly pulled into the life of Bill, can sympathize with him, and want the best for him. The movie shows great potential for the first 45 minutes as we meet the other cast of characters in Bill's life. We can sympathize with Bill, and ultimately feel good about cheering him on.

But then, somewhere halfway through this film, it unravels. Scenes start to feel pointless. The story meanders, and feels like the writers knew where it would take off, but not how it should land. The pacing becomes a slow, dull crawl. And at the end of the movie, in the last five minutes,
Bill completely falls out of character and decides to shirk everything the movie has built up to, and become a wandering nomad.

The actors do an amazing job with what they are given to work with, and I cannot fault any of them. Each actor threads the film together with great depth. Unfortunately the script doesn't give them much to hold together.

And ultimately, I felt empty as the credits rolled.

When I first saw this movie in the list of comedies I was skeptical but as it got going I really started to get into it. Great follow through with the ending. Hope to see more like it on prime.

I started to look out for Dolph Lundgren films after I saw this one. But it is my feeling that none other is better than Silent Trigger. Very stylish, very moody, overacted in a grand way.

Silent Trigger is a true return to form for director Russel Mulcahy (Highlander, Ricochet). The film is visually amazing, and is full of brilliant sets and some stylish action scenes. It manages to be one of the best action movies I've ever seen. Dolph fits perfectly into his roll as an emotionless killer, while Bellman is attractive but shallow. In the film they are two snipers who are reunited after their last mission went awry in an abandoned skyscraper, where they are supposed to be stalking out their next kill. The film deals in flashbacks with what went wrong in their last mission, until in the end we see everyone is not what they seem. Mulcahy handles the action and pace of the film with skill, and keeps us in suspense to see the conclusion. The DVD could have used more extras, but nevertheless it's still worth buying for a better version of the movie itself, and if you haven't seen Silent Trigger yet, it's a must-buy. It's too bad the movie didn't do as well as it could have at the box-office. Buy it now for one of the most intelligent, well-made action thrillers ever
