Awful figure. Bad likeness and small and ugly bit of plastic. Loved the 5" figures but this is rubbish. Do mot buy.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mildly entertaining, 4 May 2014
This review is from: American Hustle [DVD] [2013] (DVD)
Some good performances, but something was missing in this well made but somehow hollow movie. It tries to emulate the style of Martin Scorese's Casino and Paul Thomas Anderson's Boogie Nights, but comes no where near these true classics. Shame as it has a great cast who give it 100%, but its an uneven drama that fails to grip the viewer like it should. A dissapointment.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not such a naughty firm after all, 24 April 2014
This review is from: The Firm [DVD] [2009] (DVD)
The original (tv) drama from the 80's had one great thing as a selling point: Gary Oldman. He was electric as Bex. Charasmatic but as mad as a bag of snakes; a likeable sociopath that sort if became the template for much of Oldmans's later work. Here though, Bex is played as a vicious bully with no redeeming qualities. A mindless thug followed by equally mindless thugs. But I guess that might be closer to reality, but it makes it quite hard to sell the story when the hooligans messiah is a total loser from the get go. But I'm not knocking the actors. They play the parts of terrace tossers well enough, but aside from dressed in silly 80's sportswear, so the real 'fun' surely would be in the violent rucks which is really anyone interested in casual sub-culture ( or hooli films) would give a toss about anyway. This is where the film is a huge let down. The fights are incredibly boring. You never really get 'caught up' in the action because Nick Love has left his gloves on for this one. A shame really because this could have been the best hooli film yet, instead it pales in comparison to the original on just about every level.
