Review – Vanquish

Directed by the writer of Bad Boys, Middle Men and Code Name: The Cleaner comes Vanquish, a movie so empty it evaporates from your mind before you blink.

Review – Tom Clancy’s Without Remorse

Michael B. Jordan stars in WITHOUT REMORSE Photo: Nadja Klier © 2020 Paramount Pictures Tom Clancy and international conspiracies. Nothing groundbreaking.

Review – ‘Boss Level’

Boss Level, Joe Carnahan’s first movie in six years, is a surprisingly fun action fueled stunt epic. Carnahan isn’t a stranger to big action spectacles, as he was also responsible for directing The A-Team. Frank Grillo (Kingdom) is here to lead the over-the-top and delightfully absurd time loop film without much trouble. Former special forces …

Netflix Review – ‘The Misadventures of Hedi and Cokeman’

The Misadventures of Hedi and Cokeman is a French Harold & Kumar-like film that is unbearably loud and annoying. The unfunny comedy follows unlikeable characters Hedi (Hedi Bouchenafa) and Cokeman (Nassim Lyes), two low-life drug dealers with a friendship as dysfunctional as their own characters, who spend most of their time scamming snobby city kids …

Review – ‘Honest Thief’

Back in 2008 a gravelly voiced Neeson delivered that all too famous ‘I have a particular set of skills’ line that suddenly bombarded him to an unlikely action star status. Since then he’s had a steady stream of sequels and similar tough guy fare ranging from decent to entertaining. Honest Thief is the newest addition …
