4.0 out of 5 stars A good action film, 24 Sep 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Safe [DVD] (DVD)
"Safe" is a good action movie, no more, no less. Take it for what it is. Jason Statham delivers the stuff, no doubt about about that. If you're looking for 90 minutes of sensless action, then this should be your cup of tea.

This review is from: Blade [DVD] [1998] (DVD)
The first Blade movie is in my opinion the best in the series. Blazing gunfights, swordplay and of course evil vampires. It's not Oscar material, but if you're looking for a good action movie, then you can't go wrong with this 1998 production.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great mini series, 10 Feb 2008
This review is from: Ivanhoe [DVD] (DVD)
The television series "Ivanhoe" from 1997, are among the very best tv-series about life in the english middle age. Sir Walter Scotts classic adventure story about the young saxon knight Ivanhoe, who upon his return from the Crusades, finds a much changed England, is truly both dramatic and exciting. The evil prince John, and his vicious norman knights, is oppressing the saxon people. And the Templar knight, Brian de Bois-Guilbert, has spread a lot of false ruomors about Ivanhoe, accusing him of being a coward on the battlefield. Ivanhoe sets out to clear his name, and to deffend the saxon pepople. Among the young knights friends are the mysterious Black Knight, who in fact is the rightfull king of England, Richard the Lion-Hearted. There are many players in this fine drama, among them are the fanatic grandmaster of the Knights Templar, played to perfection by Christopher Lee (Dracula, The Lord of the Rings).

The 1982 version of Ivanhoe was a very good adaption of the book, but maybe a bit to glamorous. This version shows the middle age as a grim and dirty period, as it in many ways was. A great production, but I can not award it 5 stars, mainly because some of the tournament and battle scenes have to few people in them. I suspect that there was some budget constraints. That said, the castle siege stil manage to be full of action and excitement. This is a great piece of television enertainment. I highly recomend it if you are into period drama and adventure.

4.0 out of 5 stars The battle between good and evil, 24 Oct 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Revelations: Season 1 [DVD] (DVD)
Revelations is a series full of suspense, action and horror on a biblical scale. I won't spoil anything, but if you are into epic stories about the battle between the the forces of light and justice versus darkness and evil, then you should pick this one up. The series have good production values, and the actors are great. The excitement and tension builds up in every episode, and our two heroes, the reluctant scientist played by Bill Pullman, and the young nun with her strong christian faith, must face many dangers and obstacles put in their path. The demonic powers are intent on creating hell on earth, and only a few good people stand in their way. The scientist and the nun have one hope, finding a child whom they believe is Christ reborn. But the demonic powers also want to find this child. The quest to secure the holy child, leads them all over the world, which is on the brink of Armageddon.

A higly enjoyable and exciting series, but the final episode is a bit of a letdown. As with another good series, "Surface", the ending is to rushed. They probably ran out of money, or someone decided to cancel the show. But that said, both series were highly entertaining while they lasted.

5.0 out of 5 stars Before "The Lord of the Rings", there was Excalibur, 3 Jun 2007
This review is from: Excalibur [1981] [DVD] (DVD)
Anyone who really likes "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy, will most likely enjoy this movie as well. "Excalibur" is over 25 years old, but this film stands the test of time. The costumes and locations are superb, and the battle scenes are both exciting and ravishing. The intense and beautifull music score makes this film truly magnificent. The actors in "Excalibur" are very good, especially Nicol Williamson and Gabriel Byrne. If you like action packed sword and sorcery films, then you should give this one a try. It's one of the very best, if not The Best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Eastwood Western, 18 Mar 2007
This review is from: Pale Rider [1985] [DVD] (DVD)
"Pale Rider" is one of the best Eastwood westerns ever made, period. "Pale Rider" is perhaps not as good and well known as "Unforgiven" or "A Fist full of Dollars", but it is a really nice addition to those films. Great actors, good story, nice scenery and exciting shootouts, what more could anyone want if they are looking for some decent western entertainment? Give this underrated Eastwood movie a chance, you won't regret it. A classic western tale.

5.0 out of 5 stars A masterpiece, 7 Mar 2007
This review is from: Dracula [DVD] (DVD)
This is one of the best Dracula movies ever made, period. The actors are great, and the locations and cinematography are rich in details. And the musical score really adds to the tension and atmosphere of the film. Frank Langella as Dracula has a hypnotic and commanding apperance. The vampire women in this movie has to be the scariest of all time, especially Mina. When I first saw this film as a kid, she scared the crap out of me. Anyway, this version of Dracula is truly a masterpiece.

4.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best, 3 Oct 2006
"Dracula Has Risen From The Grave", has to be one of the best Dracula movies of all time. The film has a rich gothic feeling to it, and Christopher Lee makes the most of his role. He doesn't have much to say, but his presence as the bloodthirsty count are among the finest on the silver screen. Tall, dark and menacing. You don't have to rely on expensive special effects when you have an actor like Chris Lee around. A rock solid production.
