Best movie of this year hands down!
Purely Joyful Movie!
Fun premise, good actors, bad writing. This film seemed to have potential at the beginning but it quickly devolves into a trite action film. Ultimately it's very boring.
By the time the dramatic fireworks start popping off, each one feels earned.
The packaging for "D.E.B.S." makes it look like it's a slam-bang girls with guns movie with plenty of action. In actual fact, it's anything but. Although the movie deals with young and hot-looking women who work for a secret agent organization, there isn't a terrible amount of action. Instead, the movie concentrates more on a lesbian relationship that forms between one of the agents and the bad gal she and her fellow agents are pursuing. Sounds promising, but sadly this aspect of the movie never gets beyond a PG-13 level. As it turns out, no aspect of the remaining portions of the movie are particularly well done. The development of the other characters is very poor, with no other characters really standing out. The poor writing extends to the story as well; the secret agent organization is lacking detail, and there are some incomprehensible moments like how the female villain gets away when she's cornered two-thirds into the movie. It certainly doesn't help that the entire package is surprisingly shoddy, from the film crew being seen in reflections on windows to some absolutely awful special effects. In fact, the whole movie looks and feels like a low budget children's TV show like "Power Rangers Dino Charge". You'd be better off watching an episode of that show instead of this movie, since although the show is just as dumb as this movie, it at least offers some good action (and any episode only runs 30 minutes instead of being feature length.) To sum up, it's very easy to see why this movie was barely released to theaters.
I happened to see this movie on the Internet a couple of weeks ago. Surprising...and different. At first, you'd think it's a parody of Charlie's Angels, but not really. It's more of a send-up of the whole spy versus spy genre, except you've got two girls falling in love (sort of a spoiler here) instead of the usual guy-girl dynamic.I enjoyed it for what it was. The direction good although nothing special, but some of the dialog was truly funny and it had a rather nice ending. Jill Ritchie is a standout and Jimmi Simpson (seen in Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter) is solid. However, it's the romance (okay, spoiler alert) between Amy and Lucy which drives the piece.My only quibble is that the attraction between them was a little sudden and there was no hint that Amy's character was inclined the way she was. I wouldn't call this a totally successful picture, but it approached the girl-girl relationship with a breath of honesty and without stooping to stereotypes.
I think this movie is good, but apparently there is no martial arts fighting action added to the movie. Why not have Lucy Diamond beaten up by the DEBS and let her die? I think the ending should be different and not have Amy go with Lucy Diamond to Spain. Unless it can be done in the sequel then I much rather see Lucy Diamond dead by the DEBS. Why not have Jennifer Garner play Janet because she does martial arts in her television show Alias? Devon Aoki does not make a good Dominique because she is not French accent. Try Eva Green or Sophia Marceau because they are French and they make a wonderful Dominique. Well I hope they make DEBS 2, and this time Lucy Diamond must die by the DEBS. Well I hope there will be no cigarette smoking in the sequel.
First of all, this movie is hilarious. It made me laugh and smile a lot of times. And it also made me think and reflect about some things. It's sincere, has a true plot about love behind, and I really liked the relation between Lucy and Amy, since the first moment they looked into their eyes, you can tell how love flooded them, and I thought that was a sweet and funny scene, the first encounter, and it "made me cry" when they just met again the same way in the last scene.This also shows the stereotype of forbidden love. NOT because they were both women (which i think was even better, it shows that is not wrong to love someone of your same sex, and it reflected a true and sweet love), 'cause they were supposed to be foes. But, as a good love story, it ended well, and i was glad about it. I just wanted to give a little opinion here, I feel like i have too many things to say, but i just don't know how. I just know that I totally loved this movie. One of my favorites; a good comedy, and an excellent love story. Worth seeing. For me it was superb, with good acting, specially Jordana Brewster, she did a good job. She took the "evilness" to another level, and showed how a "villian" can love passionately.
