Man Down Movie Good or Bad

Man Down Movie Good or Bad

We recently saw a review on the movie called Man Down starring Shia LaBeouf.  According to various online sites the movie only grossed 7 Pounds in the UK on opening day.  This is almost impossible to believe with stars like Shia LaBeouf and Gary Oldman.  These are some of the facts:

  • Headline read ” Shia LaBeouf’s Man Down sells one ticket in the UK” – We don’t think this is a fair evaluation as the UK has a population of over 64 million.  The movie was shown only at one cinema called Reel in Burnley in the England’s northwest.  Burnley’s population is 73 000.
  • IMDB gave Man Down a rating of 5.8 – Not entirely a bad rating as most horror movies don’t score over 5.
  • Rotten Tomatoes rating – 3.8
  • Trailer received over 3 million views on YouTube.

Storyline

When a U.S. Marine returns home from Afghanistan, he finds that the place he once called home is no better than the battlefields he fought on overseas. Accompanied by his best friend, he searches desperately for the whereabouts of his estranged son and wife. In their search, the two intercept a man carrying vital information about his family.
