Default Here Comes The Boom Review Thread

RedLetterMedia said it best (and I paraphrase), "The worst kind of movie is not a very bad movie, it is a movie that is not good nor bad, just forgettable." Unfortunately, this ultimately sums up Kevin James' film Here Comes The Boom. I will admit, I actually looked forward to watching this film. Mainly because the trailer looked somewhat inspiring, Kevin James was in shape and I have a growing fascination if you will with MMA. But this movie was pretty...bland.

Kevin James was fine, giving a decent but not awfully noting performance. The rest of the cast I honestly do not remember anything about. The action was okay, but I have seen better in MMA promoting films. It was a movie that aimed to have heart but never connected. It was a movie that tried to be funny but never actually 'tried'. It was a film that tried to have action...and ultimately did not address it accurately enough.

I was entertained, at parts, so this will keep me from hating it. It was a movie of great disconnect from both reality and the fact that I felt emotionally disconnected. It was kinda cool to see Kevin James in shape though.

"And as the sun, that had been too afraid to show its face in this city, started to turn the black into grey, I smiled. Not out of happiness. But because I knew... that one day, I wouldn't have to do this anymore. One day, I could stop fighting. Because one day... I would win. One day, there will be no pain, no loss, no crime. Because of me, because I fight. For you. One day, I will win."

I'm an MMA fan, this looked like complete garbage.
