9 Actors Who Saved Otherwise Mediocre Movies
By Mother Brain
Neil Bulson of Guyism.com recently put up a top 9 list of actors who saved films that were somewhat lacking in substance. This has been a common trend in major Hollywood movies over the years. Eddie Murphy saved 48 HRS. and Beverly Hills Cop from being typical cops and robbers fluff; Hugh Jackman as Wolverine in the X-Men films is usually the saving grace when the direction falls flat (with great exception to X2); Will Smith prevented Independence Day from being a special effects-driven movie full of cardboard cutout characters saving the world from aliens and created a likable hero we could all love and root for. After reading Bulsonâ€™s article, I found myself thinking about a lot the films he mentioned which Iâ€™ve seen and agreed with most of his points. Although there is one obvious movie near the end of the list that definitely opens up room for a heated debate. Check out the link below and post your thoughts.
