    Fun movie, and very violent. It’s great to see a film that is for adults only. :)

    I saw it at my local IMAX yesterday. It’s terrific, really a suspenseful thrill ride, and Matt is simply great in it. One of my favorite roles of his ever.

    I’m planning to see it tomorrow. Looking forward to it in IMAX!

    And We’re the Millers came in at number 2 with a projected 5 day gross of 38 Million dollars which will recoup the 37 Million dollar budger. Go Jennifer Aniston!!!

    Might see it on senior discount day. So few original movies the last few years, this might make a nice change.
