It's Time to Eat Your Vegetables

     Back in the old days of 2007(seven years ago today, in fact), this crazy movie came out. It was part action movie, part video-game shooter, part ultraviolent live action cartoon even. It combined cheesy dialog, referencing Bugs Bunny and Brer Rabbit with barely believable action sequences and it was a lot of fun to watch again

     Part action film, part action film parody (maybe)

we have

     The hero, "Mr Smith" sees a pregnant woman running from some thugs and gets involved, and winds up taking care of the baby

     things I learned from this movie:

  • Even  a disaffected loner with anger issues can be a hero with near supernatural gun skills
  • It's good to know a lactating prostitute, just in case
  • Carrots are useful for all kinds of things
  • It's wise to have clear cut boundaries on the things you hate and the things you don't
  • When you run out of bullets, there is always another gun to pick up
  • Even a disaffected loner with anger issues can make a fatherly connection with a baby over a gun
  • Even a psychopathic overconfident bad guy had better not be late to his son's birthday party
without spoiling anything, this is a fun, violent, film. If that is your cup of tea, give it a watch
