    The Kingpin.

    I never thought they could anyone that could get the physicality - I don't just mean the size (the Fictional Kingpin would even dwarf Duncan) but the raw imposing projection of power.

    But he did it. In my top ten list of "Amazing performances in horrible movies".

    Mr. Universe is a known degenerate Robotophile, and his sources include former Browncoat Traitors. What is their agenda in leaking top secret information about the Reavers and endangering us all?

      Affleck, though ...

      The producers would have done better having Affleck write the script and casting someone else as DD.

        better if he had.

        The screenplay didn't suck, but it was kinda...blah.

        I'm not on the "I hate Affleck" bandwagon, he's got his talents.

        It's just he's got a bad case of Costner Disease.

        He's creative, he's talented, and within his own range he's a good actor.

        But he thinks "oh, that's cool, I want to star in that" and doesn't seem to have any ability to sit back and honestly reflect on whether he's the guy for the role.

          Should give up on trying to be an action movie star.
