The Bounty Hunter

Two words. Alpha Male.

These two words describe the UK novelty that is Gerard Butler. He is the modern day King Leonidas (who was an alpha male himself).

The plot's pretty predictable. Ex-wife who drove the ex-hubby crazy is now on the run because of felony and the ex-husband is out for revenge to get even with ex-wife and to collect bounty money. You know, that type of story.

Post-Brad Pitt Jennifer Aniston still seemed hot even in her 40's. And Mr. Butler? He is a prime alpha male specimen. I feel kinda puny and weak when I see this guy. The only bad thing is that Gerard still chose to take on a role with his thick English accent (or Scottish or Irish or whatever). Clearly shows his non-versatility. Though I give him kudos to the fact that he's tryin' his hand at comedy and pokin' a li'l fun at himself. That's the way to go, Gerard. Expand your horizons for more film offers!


Rating:6.5 out of 10. It's a sympathy vote because I love 300.

Friends, let's put our hands together and give a round of applause to Gerard Butler...for making an effort to lose his Scottish accent!

(pause for applause)

Okay, that's it. What? You want me to say something else about the film?

Hmm, let me think.

Well, Jennifer Aniston's cute. Well, she's hot with her mouth partially open, like that in the picture.

What's that? You want some more? Some more good stuff?

Okay, wait.

Okay, how about the part where the divorcees obviously still love each other, but pretend that they don't? And that scene where Jennifer Aniston still keeps their wedding picture in her wallet? I liked those scenes.

What? Still not good enough for you? Okay, let me think.

Um, how about Gerard Butler's obvious and praiseworthy effort to drop his Scottish accent and practice talking like a real Joe. How's that? Is that the kind of good stuff you're looking for? No?

Well, I give up.

I'm afraid that this film will be overshadowed by the greatness of the next big rom-com with the title of an action film - "Killers".

True, true. Well, this also has the title of an action film. Hehe. And I shall watch Killers.
