"Bet Your Life" - The Next Action Star Movie 8-4-2004 (untagged spoilers!!)

Well I didn't get to watch all of it before work, just the first half. What did everyone think of it? I was suprised to see Jeanne and Jared in it. It seemed pretty low budget but I liked Billy Zane's character. I will have to finish watching it tomorrow but feel free to post untagged spoilers as I am sure this isn't in the same caliber as The Village ha ha.

It wasn't too bad for a made-for-TV movie. I kind of liked it better when it was called "The Running Man".

Low budget was right. However, not to bad considering the actors

I generally like Billy Zane, so I enjoyed his character. I thought that, for a big "action" movie, many of the action scenes were shot in odd ways. Strange pauses during explosions, etc. I was also surprised to see Jeanne and Jared, but I was glad that they had an opportunity to work in the movie. i actually thought Jeanne played her role really well. Jared did not really get a chance to showcase his talent by playing the cabbie. I really like Sean, but I don't think i really enjoyed him in the role. Corrine did not get as much screen time as Sean, but I thought she did a great job with her role.

I wonder if she was at all disappointed that her "starring role" in an action movie was really only a secondary character to Sean's. It seems unfair that the Main Character of the movie was really Sean's when they both won the contest and should have had equally prominent roles.

My wife and I almost gave up 7 minutes or so in, but we hung on.....

I would have to say that I was entertained....though it was a passable TV movie and nothing more. I too thought Sean did not do a great job with his role and that Corrine (who is going to have to shorten her last name if she is going to make it in Hollywood) did a better job.

Jean did a GREAT job with her cameo. Jared came off sounding like a weenie in his.

Interestingly, I think many of the stunts/scenes that had to be done during the contest were modified versions of scenes from the movie. I kept thinking "where have I seen this before"......

All in all it was fun to watch, but had I not watched the contest/competition, I don't think I would have watched the movie.......
