3 Days to Kill
3 Days to Kill
Dvd
Price: £0.00

4.0 out of 5 stars Kev kills the lot, 23 July 2015

This review is from: 3 Days to Kill (DVD)
Partly original story (CIA hitman with fatal illness given opportunity to have life saving drug in turn for last mission), partly seen it all before story, (hitman with a past which involves estranged wife and daughter and his need to reconnect with them). Liam Neeson could so easily have done this right down to the Paris location, but Cosner is quite good in the role. High body count, some inventive killings and a couple of rip roaring sequences that moves the film along at a brisk pace. A little twist towards the end that was not anticipated but got cancelled out by mawkish happy ending at Christmas time - what else for a reformed hitman !

Cannot milk much more out of this one trick pony storyline surely despite it being quite gory and with convincing effects. Bit of Spielbergs Duel appearing in this sequel which perhaps shows the ideas are running out. However, all quite thought provoking and spine chilling to think a true story inspired this and that 30000 people go missing in Australia each year with 10% of that figure disappearing completely.

Rather weak story that brings nothing new to the genre. Very predictable ending that has been seen hundreds of times before. Nicole Kidman is very average as is Peter Firth, whilst Mark Strong is wasted in a third rate supporting role. Very disappointing.

Enjoyable first series with mainly interesting characters, some are a bit irritating and stereo typed. Debra Messing does well showing there is life after Will and Grace and Angelica Houston is very good too (unusual looking woman). Excellent singing, excellent songs (many original) and the muscial in the story would make a good real life show. I'd pay to watch it on stage. Has a vague feel of A Chorus Line and perhaps a more grown up Glee. Will watch Season 2 but not sure how they will be able to progress the storyline.

Hitchcock at his best. Nothing more to say. Watchable over and over again.

Did not last and unfortunately fell to pieces after about six months. Shame because it was a stiking piece and much admired.

Valco rocks. Great series 2 maintaining all the best bits and improving on them. Love all the characters, even the gross and irritating ones. Stephanie Beecham is a great character actress as the foul mouthed and totally inappropriate new manager.

Continuing to be a funny and heart warming series even with the departure of some of the core characters. Clever script and aa accurate portrayal of supermarket life. Love Lisa, Leighton and Gavins's Spanish girlfriend. Secretly, I would'nt mind working in that Valco branch for a while !

Orange Is the New Black [DVD] [2013]
Dvd ~ Taylor Schilling
Price: £14.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Watchable, 6 Jun. 2015
Very watchable series. Each character is well developed and the flash backs to how they ended up in jail is very well integrated and gives depth to each woman. Dark humour and very explicit scenes bring a realism to the setting. I was a little shocked to see some scenes as I thought US TV was quite controlled and prudish but not here. Lead character is a little green but all the more endearing for it, a real fish out of water. However I'm sure she will harden and hold her own amongst some very scary women. Will be buying Season 2 shortly.

3.0 out of 5 stars End of the franchise, 6 Jun. 2015
Watched recently on a long haul flight and raised a few smiles. However, this is the weakest of the three films and the storyline has run its course and they should stop. The old favourites are back with a few new ones but they can't save it. London location made it a little more interesting but Hollywood, even today still has a strange view of the British and of London. And Ricky Gervais is as weak as ever, what a talentless actor.
