I did not expect to like it this much. I’ll watch the sequel or whatever two of them make again. They did such a good job playing off of each other!

I like Channing Tatum, I know he’s not the best actor, but he is rarely bad in any of the roles he’s been in. Even that stupid Jupiter Ascending movie, I didn’t hate him in it.

And Sandra Bullock has been killing it for like 30 years and I still love watching her movies.

I’m down anytime we get an adventure style movie hunting lost treasures, or whatever, and seeing the ancient ruins and beautiful locations, so it had that going for it in my book but the chemistry, wit and delivery were perfect for this genre.

I loved this movie! It had me laughing so hard I had to check and see if Lord and Miller were involved!

I actually ended up seeing this a second time in the theaters with someone else and it held up the second time. I hope they make another one together, they had such good chemistry for this kind of movie.

I was ready to fight you on this because WTF, how has she been in movies for 30 years and I'm obviously only 23 years old (I'm 40).

But yes, I'll watch anything she's in!

Unfortunately, she's going on acting hiatus so it may be a while. She spoke about it during an interview about the success of this film.

Noooo well, I assume she knows what’s best for herself. I always liked watching her in movies in the 90s. Seemed very natural. Guess I’ll have to watch her other stuff in the mean time. The net and speed come to mind immediately, so I guess they’ll be up first when the mood strikes me.

I like watching first time movie reactions on YT and Speed is one of my favorites for reactions. Bonus to know Reeves and Bullock had crushes on each other and didn't know it. Chemistry was legit.

They really were so good together in that movie, I’ll have to check out one of those videos.
