You had me at 'Machine Gun' and sold me when I saw it was 'Rated R'.

Anyone got their copy from NF or BB yet? Our local branch has only 1 copy and it's checked out the moment it's returned. is it worth it?

I watched this awhile back on blu ray and it was a fantastic film. There are some scenes i found disturbing. definitely give it a rent first.

My local BB has only 1 copy so hopefully when I'll get it later today when they open at 11am. Look forward to this erasing John crapper from my memory base.

Ok well I was able to get my hands on the one only copy at the local BB and it was def worth a rental and miles more entertaining then John CaCa. But because of the subject matter being based on a real true story Hotel Lwanda Rambo it's not the most upbeat or happy movie. Gerald butler is good and becoming a legit leading guy and the film had a solid foundation plot/story but I found myself being bummed out thinking about the world's plights and problems. And the lead character was quite dark and mean SOB at times even though he was a 'preacher".

Zoey, that's almost a good enough plug for me to bite. With a gift card for Father's Day, this may be the film to get...not much coming out anytime soon.
