This review is from: Safe House (Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy + UltraViolet) (Blu-ray)
I thought it was good even if most professional reviewers hated it. Very exciting movie. I left the theatre saying it was better than the Bourne movies. The script is pretty tight and the acting is good.

I am sick of the so called professional reviewers including the ones on here. I can care less about the director, cinematography and all that other crap. Just tell us what you liked and didn't like so we can make a quick rental or purchase decision. You did a fine job. Thanks for the short version.

Wow!!!!!!!!!! I just got in here and I saw the name "Robert Logue" and i read what he wrote before I wrote this. I cant AGREE more with Mr. Logue. These so called professional writers? Are you kidding me? I just want to hear what you liked and what you didn't and most of all why? The reason for the why is that you might have a problem with Blue Ray, which i could care less about. So i would rent it anyway just based on what you thought was good, plot, acting, etc....The only thing I disagree with with Mr. Logue, and I might have taken him wrong, and forgive me if i have, but i don't mind if the review is five pages long. As long as it's not a contest of who is the better human dictionary....my reviews are more emotional and very long. so that may bother people? i hope not...good review. thank you. and thank you to Mr. Robert Logue...He made great points with his comments....

Good points made by Michael and Robert. Although I don't think long reviews add any value - especially that most tend to recap the story line which is just not necessary given the production previews and the potential for spoilers. I'd even question some DVD menus that almost give away the entire movie in the background while you struggle to find that darn PLAY button! The most valuable part of the Amazon reviews would be, as Robert also alluded to, what the viewer liked or disliked about the movie. Any intelligent reader can then make up his/her mind about the movie after browsing a few customer reviews. The same also applies to professional reviews which I take with the same grain of salt as that of a layman's review.

Pretty good film...with good cast and effects (and production values), though I would have appreciated more story and less "shoot-em-up" action. Say, three stars.
