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. For those interested about the thin plot, Ruby Rose plays a former drug courier who’s daughter is held hostage by former cop in a wheelchair, Damon (Morgan …

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. Even Co-writer Taylor Sheridan, well known for Hell Or High Water, and personal underrated favourite, Wind River, can’t save what’s been done so many times before. After John Kelly’s (Michael B. Jordan – Just …

Review – Godzilla vs. Kong

I keep wondering what a lucrative business it must be to own a construction company in Warner Bros. cinematic Monsterverse. Construction or undertaking of course. City after city is leveled by giant mythical beings, stomping on everything and everyone. That’s a lot of bricks, mortar and funerals. But I digress. Godzilla is back and this …

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 …

Netflix Review – ‘The Lovebirds’

Only a handful of romantic action comedies are actually memorable. After 2020’s pandemic put a halt on all theatrical releases, Paramount Pictures made a deal with Netflix and ‘The Lovebirds’ has now finally been released, six weeks later than initially planned. A lot of fun is to be had, but let’s make one thing clear, …
