No respect these days. They should have been thrown out way before the guy lost his temper.

The guy should have moved seats or went to the manager, but I'm sure he didn't want to miss the movie - it's such an edge of the seat production!- still, why would 3 kids around 10 years old even want to see the Titanic?? Apparently, they weren't around the first time this yawner came out. Lucky kids.

I hope "KJJ" has a lifetime of breathing difficulties as a result of his nose injuries. The little bastard got what he deserved.

I'll be Kim feels like a real man for knocking out the tooth and breaking the nose of a ten year old. Big tough guy. Big bully, more likely. Why didn't he go get an usher?

Why were ten-year-old boys unsupervised?
and
Why didn't the man take his girlfriend and move?

When I go to a movie and PAY good $- I want to hear what's going on and not have people talking and laughing anywhere in the theater.
Boys are going to horse around and tease. After all, it wasn't their money that got them into the movie. They just want to have fun.
The man could have done something else - like move,
The kid got what he deserved - even if it was illegal. I hope he learned something from it.

Hindsight is always 20/20. The kid won't learn a thing. He will be made out to be the "victim" even though he started the episode. His parents will "poor baby" him as they sue the guy, so the kid will think he can do whatever and get all this attention and money. This society is way backwards. The guy should have told the manager and had the kids thrown out. That would teach them all what they were doing was stupid and rude. Where were their parents?

Too bad he didn't smash the three of them into a bleeding, squirming mass of whimpering, gooey mush.
But perhaps I'm being too severe?
