Very best movie i ever watch
Good story, Not enough for a whole film
The acting in this movie is really good.
My disappointment may be partly due to watching on a TV rather than my projector which packed up. Much more impact on a big screen, so I recommend one. I got hooked and bought all the other series on DVD, and now this the latest. And had high hopes.People's high score may be skewed by existing fans being most drawn to watch and score. It wasn't available on the main channels here in the UK. Only Sky - and then on DVD.The main weakness is the plot repetition. We've had the override device before. We've also had Jack being taken away at the end of the series ... that was REALLY predictable. Thankfully the family-peril cliché wasn't used this time. No sign of Kim. Only one "running out of time" from Jack that I noticed. And nobody said "I understand" that I noticed. Everyone understands in the other series! Its the most sticking out over-used phrase for me.I didn't experience any kind of bonding with Jack's sidekick. Not clear who and why he was there. Very underdeveloped.Jack himself has clearly aged. The character's cleverness and thinking ability less used in this series. Helpful clues just appear on cue. He's not a good role model. He murders people. He threatens to kill people on his own side... a piece of Neanderthal strutting they always accept... and back down to. Domestic abusers might relate to that behavior but I don't. He gets angry and becomes even more of a killing machine. Another device we've had before. In reality the anger would more likely lead to him making a mistake.Whilst, yes, its a must watch for any 24 fan. It isn't one of the best 24 series. New viewers might be better starting with the earlier series. The best bit for me was the short "Solitary" bit on the DVD extras with Tony Almeida hinting at his return in the future.
3 years after the event in New York, Jack Bauer has come out of hiding in London, when he learns of a plot to kill the United States President. Live Another Day appears to be a one shot deal, but as we've seen, the shows popularity means there is always a chance it will pop up again. While Fox has said nothing about the future of the show, Live Another Day did average over 10 million viewers an episode. As I do, I'm sure those fans are hoping that number leads to either the series coming back, a feature film, or simply more mini-series. It's hard to imagine 24 taking place in another country and in just 12 episodes, but it didn't matter one bit, because of Kiefer Sutherland. The often criticized actor has found the Midis touch when it comes to Jack Bauer. I mean seriously, have you ever heard of a show that can completely change cast and location every season and still manage to survive? The cast, the location, even the date doesn't matter, because it has been and always will be about Jack Bauer. In a strange twist, as kind of a thank you to the fans, many characters from previous seasons have returned for the mini-series, and it only made it that much more enjoyable. Live Another Day features the same Jack, who really hasn't lost a step. It also comes with everything you came to expect from 8 seasons of the hit show. Live Another Day may only have been half as long as the other seasons, but it rivals every single one of them. If you're a fan or even a casual viewer of the show, give yourself a treat and sit down for 12 new episodes of this timeless television classic!
24: Live Another Day is a limited television event the presents the ninth season of 24. Kiefer Sutherland reprises his role as Jack Bauer. Also known as Day 9,it consist of only twelve episodes which is only half of the usual number compared to the previous seasons.Live Another Day picks up from four years of the eight season when President James Heller is negotiating for a peace treaty at London.Jack Bauer comes back in action when he heard that there is an attempt to kill the President.During this time,Bauer is working with Chloe O'Brian's group of hackers.Apart for saving the President,he also up to prevent a global terror threat after a terrorist Margot Al-Harazi gains control of six US drones that will be used to create mass destruction around the world and to prevent a possible World War when Cheng Zhi is out to attack his former country with hijacked American weapons to provoke a war between China and the United States.Adding to the complexity of Jack's mission is the fact that the Russians are out to capture him. There is no question that the fact that Live Another Day is a great season despite having only twelve episodes.Arguably,it is the best among all the seasons of 24.The writers did a great job of twelve solid episodes as they did their best of coming up with something new and refreshing and did not come up with something boring unlike Day 6 which happens to be the least-liked season of the show nor was it something with repeated plot elements unlike Day 8 wherein the only difference was the location of CTU which was in New York.There wasn't any filler episode this time around.Another thing that is worth mentioning is the fact that we get treated to interesting villains like Margot Al- Harazi,who I believe is just as fascinating as Nina Myers.Finally,the suspense and excitement in all twelve episodes was the best and the ending was classic by definition as we are not treated into happy endings especially after we see the death of Audrey and Jack's sacrifice by putting himself into Russian custody for the safety of others. Although it was sad to see Kim Raver's character die,here is hoping that there will be another season of the show sometime in the future to at least level if not surpass arguably the best season of 24 ever.
For a 24 entry, LIVE ANOTHER DAY sure as hell didn't start off as anything special. There was a noticeable feeling of playing it safe, bordering on by-the-numbers. And Margot al-Harazi was a lousy villain; nothing to set her apart from the usual crazy. But then Jack tossed her out a window and everything took a sharp turn for the better. Stuff got serious, the adrenaline finally kicked in, and the show got its legs back. It actually turned out to be one kickass miniseries with that back half. Even still, Yvonne Strahovski was the shining addition throughout the whole thing. They managed to bring back Cheng (ugh, season 6) and actually bring some closure to that storyline. Guy's been due for comeuppance for years, and it was a thrill to see Jack beat the life out of him. And they killed off a main character to make that happen, while doing it in a meaningful way. And Kiefer played that scene beautifully. But they can't drag Jack Bauer through the mud anymore. I don't know if there will be another season of 24 or not (that ending reprise of season 5 makes me think no, there won't), but they've taken away everything that means something to him; his wife, Renee and now Audrey. He's as cold and embittered as possible (pushing the limits, really). He's in the hands of the bad guys, where else can they take him?It was a crappy way for him to go out, but they've used this guy up. His sacrifice was noble, let's end it here. 8/10
