Didnt think the movie was that awful, but sadly the McPoison advertisement ruined its legacy (and finchers) if it ever was to have one.
>He's never worked on the road
Hey, maybe Fincher was just being all meta about "the killer" by advertising mcdonalds come to think of it...
you'd better stomp your phone right now
Yeah when I'm on my grind I make sure to namedrop McDonald's and advertise it in my own head
you fucking RETARD
People without inner monologues have no idea what it's actually like and this movie proves it
Fincher is pure NPC
It was a stylized inner monologue you nagger. Your autist rambles don't make for good cinema
yeah the monologue is stylized bro just like how this whole movie is so "stylish" with its epic product placement
how much is "style" on Amazon Prime?
this is like an emperor has no clothes situation for Fincher
now everyone knows what a dumb retard he is lmfaooo
Dont forget your haagen daaz
What was the point of him removing the buns? I don't eat processed burgerslop so that went over my head.
The dialogue said "mcdonalds is a good enough place to get some protein" or something like that.
Which was strange to me because hes so picky about everything down to his diet, but compromises to eat mystery pharmaceutical meat
It's 100% unprocessed meat.
Youre saying something absurd on purpose here right
Fresh meat is added to a grinder and formed into patties and then flash frozen. And it's 100% beef. The rest of the stuff is processed, like the ketchup, bun and cheese.
Mcdonalds "fresh meat" is part of a commercial process from day 1 when the pregnant animals are injected with hormones and antibiotics to keep them alive and growing in hell on earth
You are just naive. Thats all. They have teams of lawyers that absolve them of having to admit things by hiring contractors.
This guy is seriously on Cinemaphile trying to sell on McDonalds being good for us
It's not good for you, that's just not the reason it isn't good for you.
Companies will say what they can get away with, not what is necessarily true.
Do you have a single fact to back that up? Or are you just a pansy too scared to eat a burger big guy?
look sloppo, slop eaters eat slop. i cant change a slop eater.
you either eat slop or you dont.
I feel bad for calling you sloppo, weve all been there.
well if mcdonalds dot com says so...
Why would mcdonalds lie?
>removing the buns
Fincher deconstructed the burger, like the genre. Its a burger but not a burger, get it?
The high carb buns were removed, like the slop of the typical Hollywood movie were removed. Its probably a hat tip to Tarantula but audience expectations were subverted, just like with the ending.
i bet you love tarantino however
No, his obsession with putting his foot fetish coom shit in every movie isnt something i wish to subject myself to indulging him in viewing over and over.
makes more sense for an international hitman to eat McDonald's than some street-vendor kebab to avoid sickness/indigestion
I heard Olympic athletes do this
seriously. fast food still have pretty strict regulations from corporate usually.
Yeah, if McDonalds gives you botulism that's like a 5 billion dollar lawsuit. It's also why the Chinese are so into KFC, it's because no matter where you go, every single KFC is this staggering monument to Aryan health and safety standards.
I mean yes like one time they found a rat bone in a burger, but remember what happened as a result of that? 5 billion dollar lawsuit, never happened since.
All of the negative stuff about fast food is stuff like lacking proper nutrients, being over-concentrated with saturated fats and processed sugars, the one thing you don't have to worry about McDonalds doing is giving you dysentery. It might FEEL like dysentery when you're shitting it out later, but it won't actually kill you.
>take off the buns and eats the meat and egg with his hands
I sometimes can't believe the amount of low-IQ posters here
That was one of the most fucking believable scenes in that movie you imbecile.
mcdonald's isn't poison, it's not just very nutritious. you're not going to die because you eat fast food burger.
wait let me get this straight, you homosexuals actually think Fincher was personally paid by McDonalds and Amazon to shill their companies? You really think they need promotion?
it was alright
like 7/10 at best mostly because of the pretty scenery at times and for getting fassbender back in a lead role
The advertisements ruined it.
But other than that I thought fassbender was interesting to watch as usual. But i think without a good lead fincher would have been left with a silly turd full of tired gimmicks like the fight club screen shaking effect during the fight scene.
yea if it was a literal who actor it would've def dropped to a 5
possibly 4 because there
Everyone starts as a literal who, but not everyone is just interesting to watch doing a yoga pose.
What the hell I just saw my dad watching this the other day.
This movie is a certified cult classic. As someone that was on Cinemaphile when Drive released I can tell you that it’s gotten the same exact type of reception. A lot of chudtards from Reddit hate the film but all the autistic OG Cinemaphileners have already downloaded the personality.
Drive didnt advertise you a fucking big mac and haagen daaz, and i think that will factor heavily into who chooses to give it a lasting life of remembrance down the road
characters drinking Sprunk soda is more disruptive to immersion than just drinking Sprite
>whats a glass
soda doesn't come in glass unless it's with the logo plastered on dummy
no literally me character would ever drink from a soda fountain
Fincher put this shit in his movie because he was payed to do so.
yea I know that but I still don't care and it's more realistic. when I walk around there are ads everywhere and people are all holding branded containers and bags, wearing clothes with logos
it depends on how it's filmed but no ads in urban environments is usually worse
I have zero respect for a director who cucks their art for money from corporate overlords.
Fincher is officially michael bay tier now.
>characters walks in downtown New York
>all the billboards and digital screens display generic photographs of nothing
pic related is what real life looks like
They were namedropping and talking about how much they loved it and how good it was come on lol.
Tilda swinton said she wanted haagen daaz one last time before she died like it was her last fucking meal it was so good come on man
yea you're right
I didn't mind when it was the schizoid autist talking about his McDonald's routine (for me, it's the McChicken) but the amazon visuals and Haagen Daaz was a bit much
Fincher was always less talented than Bay
the amazon pop-up was pretty egregious though. that probably paid for half the budget lol
if he had just opened the product from an Amazon shipping box it would have been perfectly fine
>cant manage to write a scene without a character hamfisting some billboard against their face
Thats even more immersion breaking
Are you joking? The trailer for Drive is a trailer for car chases action film. Look it up.
Come on man I like fassy but he's no real human bean.
i think hes as good, he just hasnt got that many good roles yet
Let me rephrase, the killer is no driver.
fassbender = gossling I can agree with.
Also it's missing the iconic shit, bucket hat cant compare to scorpion jacket and the shitty boomer soundtrack lacks the defining identiy that the drive ost has.
oh of course
this film is nowhere close to driver
These are good points. It really all boils down to the only good thing about the killer was Fassbender himself, whereas drive had more than just a good lead.
Drive was instantly popular and had tons of buzz and good word of mouth that made it a cult classic. This is just a loose turd that was instantly forgotten and has no word of mouth at all. It's a mediocre movie bordering on simply being bad
>Drive was instantly popular
Found the zoomer
It quintupled its budget at the box office. If Drive hadnt been instantly successful Gosling wouldn't have immediately agreed to do Only God Forgives the very next year. You're an idiot.
Drive was unique and memorable and stylish. The only memorable aspects of The Killer are how terrible the script was and how comically inept the main character is.
i dont even need to see the film to know its the new "literally me" and those kind of films are always iconic and talked about for ages. Blade Runner 2049 is only getting appreciated now, 8 years after release
I just have zero respect for a director that allows product placement in his art.
Zero respect, and i further question his IQ.
It filtered everyone able to recognize a shit movie
it filtered redditors. go ahead and look at the negative user reviews on rt. you'll see things such as people having positive opinions of noam chomsky animated interviews while having a negative opinion on the killer. their hate is really just irrational and they won't tell you why they hate it while relying on nitpicks which isn't genuine criticism
probably because he didnt kill the billionaire
Nobody hates it. It's just a terrible movie. The entire plot is generated by the protagonist being stupid to the point it breaks your suspension of disbelief. His ineptitude literally sparked arguments as to whether the movie was supposed to be a comedy or not. People on here were seriously arguing that it's actually a clever satirical subversion of classic hitman tropes. Which it honestly may be a satire, who knows? That's how terribly it's written.
I think people see finchers yellow filter like its about to be a red light to stop their brains
or something its odd.
If Finchers name wasn't attached nobody would have even watched it. People see his name and assume it can't possibly be as bad a movie as it initially seems. But it is, simply because it's a truly awful, awful script.
explain why it's bad
>The entire plot is generated by the protagonist being stupid to the point it breaks your suspension of disbelief.
where in the film does it show he's stupid? he's not stupid, he's full of shit. that was the point
>His ineptitude literally sparked arguments as to whether the movie was supposed to be a comedy or not.
if you didn't understand the first hit then there's no helping you, you got filtered. the first hit with his long winded meandering self indulgent diatribe only to whiff is comedy, yes. it established that he is in fact full of shit, not that he's incompetent or stupid
it was obviously trying to be a bit funny but not a comedy
I liked the part where he finishes his le epic badass hitman monologue and takes the shot and totally fucks it up
made me smile
other parts were just goofy writing like "I don't give a fuck" and "normies"
>make an anti-establishment comic book film
>it's a direct-to-netflix extended mcdonalds commercial
ngl i felt grifted when i started watching it. didn't finish
>comic book "movie"
Watch a real film you fucking retard
>hockey isn't a game because you don't play with a ball.
It has generally positive reviews from critics. Midwit normies lap this kind of slop up.
I read the comic book and that's the killer's motivation for the whole thing
>starts out as a pretty good nihilist hitman character study
>shits the bed in the second act when he le cares about some girl
turned it off then and there
he didn't care about the girl, he was paranoid about somebody getting him which was established during the flight from Paris where he was losing it because of some sock wearing guy. he wanted to get them before they got him
>keeps telling himself he's a good emotionless assassin
>has an asian gf in some backwater 3rd world country
wow he's literally me frfr no cap
watched this last night.
It was certified Hitman kino. Not ultra realistic, but a bit more toned down than the Wick capeshit that has been trending recently. The cinematography was really pleasant as well.
Chad Fassbender once again having to live amongst the normies.
This film would have beeb 10 times better if it was about a hitman getting revenge on his former employer without us knowing the motivation for his rampage
The emotionless and detached killer who loses it once the one and only person he cares about is harmed/killed trope has been done to death and isn't really interesting.
I did quite like how he fumbled the first kill we see him undertake after giving that long, drawn out monologue about how good of an assassin he is though
What sort of retarded posture is that pic? Shes standing leaning backwards, why is bing so stupid?
It’s called ‘assassin back’. You wouldnt get it
