Jack Cross #2

Hmmmm. I *want* to like this so bad - but to be honest i'm having trouble turning that all the way over. To me it feels like Ellis is trying a bit too hard to make Cross a bad-ass. The whole cutting crosses into himself everytime he kills someone is just a bit over the top (i see where he's going w/ the idea and it's solid, just not executed quite right). And seriously - even if you're working black-box for the gub-ment, can you just blow the head off a witness during an interrogation and leave him for the hapless police chief to clean up w/o any reprecussions? maybe.

Have to admit the stunt hanging out the car raining lead death is unbelievable - but cool as s none-the-less (this one would make even Vin Deisel proud).

It was all over when...

Zilla is not my real name.

I'm from Tejas living in VA. I'm married w/ 2 dogs. I'm an IT security consultant cranking the wheel for a big consulting firm in "real" life.

I watch the History Channel, Nat'l Geo, TLC, Mil Channel, ESPN and NFL Network, CourtTV (forensic files, etc.) and the Cartoon Network (love Genndy T's Samurai Jack and Clone Wars Adventures). My taste in movies: Gladiator, Last Samurai, Braveheart, Godfather, Tarantino (whatever), Kung-Fu (whatever), Westerns, Top Gun, Big Lebowski.

I love the outdoors and bs'ing around w/ my dogs.

In addition to being a comics junkie, i'm also a sports junkie especially when it comes to the Texas Longhorns and the Dallas Cowboys.
