    Maybe it's here that they weren't so big...or maybe it's my age when I saw some of them. I think Dangerous Liaisons came out when I was 18 or 19. I sort of remember there being some critical acclaim, but people seemed to steer clear of that movie for some reason.

    But, no one here liked The Full Monty and I think it was brilliant!

    Tim Roth is fantastic in everything.

    Hell he was the only good thing about that Planet of the Apes remake.. he was General Thade

    battlefield earth and the island come to mind, they were criticized immensely for some reason yet both had very decent storylines, solid performances and great action sequences. i never understood what was considered to be so bad about them.

    another major one that comes to mind is "heat" starring al pacino, val kilmer, robert de niro and jon voight aswell as many other stars who became famous afterwards or who were atleast recognisable by face (ashley judd, natalie portman). it had fantastic characters and performances and a decent plot and action sequences (the infamous bank robbery for one) yet never really got any recognition at all.

    ive seen so many movies (like most people obviously) so its hard to think of alot of underrated ones atm but those are three ones that stick out for me

    Delerium, are you a girl or a guy?

    I think most guys like that movie "Heat" for the action just like most men like "Die Hard." My hubby loves it. The shooting scenes were great IMO. I like action movies myself (but I'm more into martial arts type of movies...)

    If you think it's crazy, you ain't seen a thing. Just wait until we're goin down in flames.

    lol yea im a guy. but yea i thought the action sequences were great, i think its one of the best "criminal versus cop" movies (if u know what i mean) ever made. some films are just meant to be action and nothing more and die hard did it great aswell i must say

    Heat was worth watching for the DeNiro/Pacino scene in the coffee shop alone.........Michael Mann was at the top of his game for that one..

    Not a man, and I still ADORE Heat. I love the entire dynamic between Niro and Pacino. In a way, it's about the great love story between two guys. With guns.

    wait, im sorry.. battlefield earth? are you serious? the thing with John Travolta?!

    That thing was so badly directed, the production values were so low and the story execrable that I turned it off halfway through, and i usually sit through even the worst shit

    It was underrated, it not unheard of, at least where I'm from anyways:
    Frailty (2001) w/ Bill Paxton, Matthew McConaughey, and Matt Oleary
