5.0 out of 5 stars Buy it... simple as that, 23 Sep 2013
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Game of the year... So much fun, so much to do, the sound quality is excellent.. Not going to do spoilers...:D i dont usually buy full price games but only after 2 days its been worth every penny and im only 5% through it... theres so much to do be it mission or the hobbies and pastimes you can do... such a massive world to walk around in... its an escape from the real world.. roll on GTA 6! :)

3.0 out of 5 stars Just about enjoyable, 10 May 2013
As a fan of ultramarines and all things warhammer 40k universe ive been waiting on this film to come down in price or grab a bargin on ebay to be bought as waited so long for a film to come out... its just passable.
The film itself is a bit hit and miss...for example it lingers too much on a scene so youre waiting for the next bit so can get a bit boring and time consuming.. esp from a short film and also with todays technology id thought the face animation would be better.Other glaring 'misses' include the marines/chaos marines are easily killed...the bolter is a piece of kit granted but theyre wearing power armour. Flamer too,going down like ten pins.The marines didnt look like their armoured giants, didnt feel they were walking armoured soldiers the stomps and steps. But there are 'hits' the speeder looked and sounded like a vehicle of importance which the film portrayed well,when the action starts its very good.. animation is smooth and the sounds perfect for the weapons...esp the bolters.The voice acting is quite good too.

Looking at the intro of dawn of war 1 this is what the film shouldve been like.. wouldve been alot more popular and therefore likely sequels.. theres a load of books in the warhammer 40k universe and a huge oppotunity to turn them into books.. esp gaunts ghosts,ultramarines,(uriel ventris)horus heresy and others..potential is massive.. but after this film its looking unlikely.Its a shame as this film couldve been better but then it couldve been worse.
If youre wanting to watch it as a film then wait till it comes down in price,if youre a fan buy the special edition with the extras... a pristine copy is a joy to behold :)

2.0 out of 5 stars Slow,kicks off then??? eh?, 31 Dec 2011
This review is from: The Veteran [DVD] (DVD)
Watched the film.. how slow can you go?
Action is few and far between where the main character just plays eye spy in most of the film.
It kicks off at the end where hes shooting the gangsters/mobsters/kids like in the wild west which looked pretty good and entertaining after a slow and mind numbing slog.. then after the battle when he finally arrives at the flat.... WTF??!!! i cant tell you what happened as it spoils it.. but.. be prepared to be dumbstruck??! is that it??!!!all that film... and that? I didnt see the ending coming at all... really spoiled an otherwise average but just watchable film.

3.0 out of 5 stars its like marmite..... love it or hate it, 31 Dec 2011
Didnt have high hopes for this film due to disliking all things over the top and make believe type graphics but found myself really enjoying the film.. you cant put your finger on it why its so entertaining but you sorta sucks you in.
The main character is a unlikeable geek who you really dont care for and his love interest is just a moody person who thinks shes gods gift and thinks she should be worth fighting for despite dating twins at same time and messing with peoples feelings over relationships hence the evil exs etc etc.. but linking it with computer game graphics every now and then in quirky bits and over the top special effects you cant help but smile from the sheer daftness of it all.. i wanted to hate it but it came up with a few solid gem moments either by laughing out loud moments or clever use of special effects for example the sword fight at end...ignore the vegan police though...not good at all.
i could imagine blu-ray being a whole lot better for graphics.. it is a solid fun film but dont take it seriously as you will find huge holes in it all,will hate it and probably switch off after the 3rd fight as i nearly did.. but see it as entertainment and its defo worth a look.
Very enjoyable.

3.0 out of 5 stars ole mighty ring, 31 Dec 2011
This review is from: Green Lantern [DVD] [2011] (DVD)
Despite being ripped to pieces in the press and films reviews it aint as bad as the one star reviews its got.Clever use of special effects in the battles and all in all action sequencies make this entertaining enough to enjoy at anytime.
The main guy is evil enough to hate despite looking like a pile of sick.. and the end credits reveal a sequel.. which watching this film there should be. Dont look too deep into seeing if its same as the comics etc etc blah blah gumph.. enjoy the film as it is.. it aint anything out of this world but its good enough to enjoy :)

2.0 out of 5 stars A poor mans james bond without the suit..., 30 Dec 2011
How can a film make the main character to be a total t*sser? You just wanted him to die with his arrogance and the big i am.. least his sidekick is decent enough to make them the good guys from the film and want them to succeed.. but i think thats thats the whole idea of it all!
Nice set pieces action wise.. decent weapons and stunts but seen better elsewhere but the characters just spoil a potential great film with a bit more time and thought this couldve been cracking. Bad guy sucks to be honest.. double barreled gun... maybe.. but you aint exactly quaking in your boots from his evil badness.
The green hornet is a total d*ck..honestly he is...wait till it gets shown on television.

5.0 out of 5 stars Drugs for your eyes., 30 Dec 2011
Forget about the story as you know whats going to happen at the end about a young car driver driving for an independent family company.. oh theres races?? hmmmm is he going to come first??! of course he is... but for the people missing the actual point of the film is entertainment.
The action sequences are flashy,your television spits out colours you never knew possible and your eyes are in for a real treat in all things graphics and speed of the animation.. yes the story does suck.. and anything that includes a pet chimp (rise of the planet of the apes doesnt count here!!) you know you cant take this film seriously.
Some parts slow right down and sometimes you just wish some races would finish (mountain pass being a boring one coupled with fighting... sighs..) but all in all,esp blu ray its worth getting for the action set pieces and cranking up the volume..switch your brain off too... :D

1.0 out of 5 stars sighs... another one???, 30 Dec 2011
This review is from: Fighting [DVD] (DVD)
If you too like all things poor like for example 'unrivaled' and rocky type films where an underdog wins despite being a bit poor then this film is for you...
How the hell can you give this film 5 stars or even a 4?! The box artwork and story gumph was very promising but all we re left with is a soooo slow story about a person who just fights.. for no apparent reason.. its just poor. The fights,again are ok and can be entertaining for all of a minute or so.. and likewise like the 'unrivaled' film its bettered by 'blood and bone'

3.0 out of 5 stars An overall entertaining film., 27 Dec 2011
This review is from: Thor [DVD] (DVD)
Got this for a xmas present and really enjoyed it.. Ive seen better but then ive seen worse as it plays out really something worthwhile, for example the battle at the start Thor and his companions versus the frost giants was very impressive with the special effects.. then it just suddenly drops into a real mess.. banished from earth etc...Really slows down.. Tacking the odd bits here and there.. a few comedy moments (getting run over for the 2nd time)

when the android/fire robot plops itself on earth to destroy Thor you knew then what was going to happen.. esp after the Stark comment that this film would be tongue in cheek.. Coupled with plastic tubing around the hammer site and 'men in black' type men the film starts to get a bit empty and longing for more action and the ilk.

After the credit rolls it shows a 2 minute 'link' to thor 2,maybe ironman.. they always do this.. to justify itself theres more to come so stick around! The effects make this film and were very impressive despite other negative comment mutterings from 1 star reviews of it.. If every film was accurate to the comics etc then everything would be a real mess but this film was enjoyable enough not to get too deep into all things comics,story and accuracy.. whats point? its a film!Ironman 1 (2 is terrible!!!!) set the bar high on how it should be done with acting,action but this film is a good afternoon waster..

4.0 out of 5 stars Very decent, 22 Dec 2011
A very decent fun film.. Really enjoyed it,didnt expect to be impressed with the graphics and special effects so having seen this i wished id seen this on blu ray. :D

Some bits were typical disney of good guy saving the day and getting the girl.. which obviously is the norm for americanized disney family films.. which you can see a mile away.. but the effects are really top notch (Car with the mirror sequence..) Wish there was a sequel. :D
