    Big fan of the original and I'm a big fan of this one. Crazy dark comedy and violent retribution meted out by one Liam Neesons is mah SHIT.
    Takes everything important that made the original work while adding its own grace notes. For fans of this sort of thing, the flick is an outright joy.

    I don't want to hear that horror has been in a bad place this decade when this was like my 3rd favorite horror movie of '15.
    So well directed and acted and written and goddamn this is just about as solid as a humble lil horror flick can be.

    This movie is such a personal experience for me that it's utterly impossible to be objective in any way about it.

    It's so much of what I love. It's so purely an expression of storytelling and character and spectacle and wonder above all.

    This film is magic and now that I've seen it, I don't know how I ever did without it before J.J. brought it into being.

    I wish there was a movie that feels like this coming out every summer for the rest of my life.

    This is not just Daniel Craig's best outing as 007, or just a great Bond movie.

    It is a great movie period.

    I grew up on Bond, have always loved the character and the girls and the stunts and the gadgets...but this is next level right here.
