but the audience went into the movie understanding that it isn't trying to be a masterpiece, and it hit their expectations...so it scored high with them, and they are the only ones that really matter.
The audience seems to lack respect for gritty genre pieces.
Look at the audience meter for 48 Hrs.
And look at the meter for tired and repetitive Rush Hour 3:
That's why I say the audience can go **** themselves.
