Universal's EYE SEE YOU aka THE OUTPOST aka DETOX... info

Hey folks, Harry here with a couple of pics from Stallone's EYE SEE YOU. Now... This isn't a new project, but rather... the third title for a movie that when it tested back in September of 1999 under the title DETOX, it was met with very hostile reviews. It was shelved for a while pending reshoots and possible story changes, and then the next time we heard from it, it was called THE OUTPOST. When last we heard the film was basically not going to be released, but well... now it is headed to be released on March 1st, 2000... the same day as MOMENTO, the film that people ARE raving about. Here are the original reviews: Harry Lime reviewed it first 3 more reviews can be found here! Now hopefully the film has changed quite a bit, and if you want to see these photos in color... check out click on over to IMDB's Gallery on the title!

    such is the paradox of life

    by BigWednesday

    The dumbest dolt in the world can look like a genius in the movies (Brad Pitt anyone) and a really smart guy can come across as a dolt in the movies, like Sly. Now I like Sly, I think he has made some good films, he's an enthusiastic go-getter in real life, but he has this bad habit of going with the wrong script every so often. But that's ok, I forgive him! By the way, I'm first bwa hahaha!!!!!! and John Milius should direct the Alexander biopic so put that in your bong and puff it.

    it's a shame about sly...

    by tommy5tone

    this movie probably doesn't suck half as bad as other big-budget flameouts like 'red planet' but shiteful word of mouth has condemned the poor bastard to straight-to-video hell. my advice to stallone: he needs to find an urban version of 'unforgiven' as his swan song ('get carter' could have been this if it hadn't sucked harder than alisha klass), take a leap of faith by removing himself from the behind-the-camera creative process and putting himself in the hands of a scripter and director who (a) know what they're doing, (b) won't be intimidated by sly and concentrate on the acting, man. stallone's work on 'cop land' was pretty damn good - can you imagine what would happen if he hooked up with david o. russell, michael mann or even john mctiernan?

    I.C.U.

    by Wee Willie

    Is this new title supposed to be a play on the anagram for Intensive Care Unit? What the fuck happened to the guy who did Copland in an effort to get some more serious roles. Sly's latest film Avenging Angelo was just pushed seven weeks. He's turing into one of those straight-to-video action guys, except not as cool as Michael Dudikoff.

    God, first 'Daylight' and now this!

    by Psyclops

    Don't get me wrong, I like this guy... I fucking grew up on Rambo and Rocky films! I just want him to have a decent last film before he retires like Arnold will very soon.

    Eye See You

    by ABking

    Wee Willie, what did you mean when you said AVENGING ANGELO was pushed back seven weeks? I think Harry made a mistake. EYE SEE YOU is supposed to open in Fall. Hopefully with all the editing that has been done, the movie will turn out good. Stallone, or Schwarzenegger for that matter will NEVER be direct-to-video actors. Who ever says that are BRAIN DEAD!!!

    Message board is messed up!!!

    All the messages are out of order!

    A ridiculously stupid title

    by Crouton

    "eye" see you? damn, that's idiotic.

  • Jan. 24, 2001, 7:50 p.m. CST

    The reason for the title Eye See You!

    by ABking

    EYE SEE YOU is the name of the movie because the killer sometimes carves the letters ICU into his victims. The killers eyes are also something focused on throughout the movie (I think I remember hearing).

    i don't care WHY it's called 'eye see you', i just want to know

    by tommy5tone

    'the outpost' = bland. 'eye see you' = fucking stupid. 'detox' = best of a bad bunch. going with 'eye see you' is a long, sharp, rusty nail in the coffin of sly's career.

  • Jan. 24, 2001, 9:41 p.m. CST

    If he carves "I.C.U", shouldnt the film be called that?

    by Crouton

    Turning "I" into "Eye" is not clever. It is moronic.

    stallone has to stay away from these shitty movies!

    by mooncake

    i like stallone & have been a steady viewer of his movies for many years. ever since his rocky days. this guy is very likable, although he ain't no rober deniro he's a guy who can do some decent acting. i'm always cheering for this guy but he really needs to stay away from moronic sh*t roles like the one in GET CARTER! what was he thinking? i know he was desperate because there wasn't any work for him in like 2 years but he shouldn't! it's better not to do any movies than to do garbage like GET CARTER! so what if he didn't work in 2 years? he's a goddam friggin multi millionare anyways. he should no longer do movies for $$$. but do movies for acting & fun! choose films that are directed by talented directors, scripts written by truly writers, do roles that have true emotions & dramatic depth. i like the guy but i don't know how many of those f*cking zombie roles like in GET CARTER i can take.

    STALLONE IS TURNING INTO THE ANAL WART OF CINEMA!

    by GEEKBASHER 3.0

    PLEASE! SOMEONE! QUICK! BURN HIM OFF THE SCREEN BEFORE HE SPREADS AND INFECTS OTHERS WITH HIS CAULIFLOWER RESEMBLENCE! (anal warts do resemble cauliflower right???) IF HIM AND JOHN TRAVOLTA DON't RETIRE SOON, THEY SHOULD PUT THEM IN A MOVIE TOGETHER AND CALL IT "ANALWARTS: BURN IT OFF!"

  • Jan. 25, 2001, 7:31 a.m. CST

    one of the worst scripts i ever read!!!!!

    by dj supersoul

    the script for this movie sucks so much ass, you wouldn't believe it. the killings are so ridiculously post-Se7en wannabe shocking and they're just retarded. And (POSSIBLE SPOILER -- BUT WHY WOULD YOU BE SURPRISED) the last scene where Sly shoots one bullet (about 10+) into the killer for each person he killed...while saying their names in honor...during the film, while the guy hangs from the ceiling on a hook is so lame. Avoid. Please.

    "Death Race 3000".........

    by Uncle Jay

    Sly should recreate his role as Machine Gun Joe Viterbo in "Death Race 3000". Tom Cruise is remaking "DR2000" starring himself. I heard that they are trying to get Sly to sign. Well Sly, do yourself and all of us a favor, and DO IT, that was one of your finest roles!
