2.0 out of 5 stars COME BACK ARNOLD SCHWARZENNEGGER, 24 Oct. 2007
This review is from: The Marine [DVD] (DVD)
When you can compliment Arnie on his acting, in preference to this muscle man, things look decidedly worrying.

This film was pretty awful really. The story was basic with a capital B. Our hero is blown up more times than a beach ball and frankly should have been dead or in intensive care at least three times. The US Marines should have let him stay on and win the Gulf War on his own.

Sorry, but give this one a miss.

5.0 out of 5 stars THOSE DASTARDLY JERRIES, 24 Oct. 2007
Michael Caine as a bad guy, can it be true? Yes indeed, he is the commander of a group of tough German paratroopers posing at Polish Paratroopers on exercises in a quaint English village. A top level meeting at a nearby American base will host none other than Winston Churchill. The sneeky Germans are here to kidnap him and force the allies to surrender.

BUT.... The villagers discover the true identity of their Polish pals who are forced to hold most of the village (excluding horses and cows) hostage in the village church. A villager escapes, sounds the alarm and the Americans (even on British soil) ride to the rescue.

Great, dare i say classic, film.

2.0 out of 5 stars AVERAGE STUFF, 22 Oct. 2007
Picture the creepy deserted old mansion house. Quaid and Stone, complete with two kids, move in. I expected rattling chains and bumps in the night, but the baddy is real enough and resents his family home being inhabited by city folk.

Fairly good in places, just felt with this cast things could have been better.

4.0 out of 5 stars HUGH DUNNIT, 22 Oct. 2007
It was weird watching Hugh Grant acting as a serious character. I kept waiting for him to dither and mumble, but he did quite well.

Playing the part of an English doctor in an A+E hospital dept. he uncovers a ghoulish plot to use homeless vagrants as medical guinea pigs, by Gene Hackman, who is trying to use brain stem technology to cure victims of paralysis. Grant plays the hero quite well and thankfully doesn't really go down the James Bond route i feared initially.

Good story and well worth a watch.

2.0 out of 5 stars BLIND SOMETHING, 22 Oct. 2007
Not Rutger's crowning moment i'm afraid.

As a blind Vietnam war veteran, Hauer comes to the rescue of an ex-comrade and his family, threatened by a mafia-like gang.

Rutger is deadly with a Samurai type sword and can gut flies in half with his superfast reflexes and superhearing (yes i've had enough aswell). It's an okay film but if you have the chance to go out instead..... GO OUT.

5.0 out of 5 stars TOP GERE, 22 Oct. 2007
Richard Gere in unfamiliar territory, as a devious and dangerous bent cop.

His character bends the rules and skims money from protection rackets, drug deals and prostitution. Andy Garcia works within the Internal Affairs (cops watching cops as they say) department and Gere's vicious, murderous reign is uncovered.

Very clever and fast moving film.

5.0 out of 5 stars NICE ONE GOLDIE, 22 Oct. 2007
This review is from: Deceived [DVD] [1992] (DVD)
Another great thriller.

Goldie Hawn plays the widdowed wife of a museum director who mysteriously dies, only to return to reveal a web of deceipt (hence the title) of lies and a trail of theft and murder.

Complicated plot but very watchable.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT STUFF, 22 Oct. 2007
This review is from: Malice [DVD] (DVD)
A proper thriller with a storyline, good acting and a couple of twists that could break a hip.

Who'd have thought you could dislike Nicole Kidman. The imaginary mother of my children plays a nasty, deceptive and frankly quite disturbed woman who seeks to claim compensation for a surgical mishap, engineered by her and her lover/surgeon Alec Baldwin.

Plans go astray as Bill Pullman, the deceived husband gets to the bottom (you see Nicole's incidentally) of the devious plot.

2.0 out of 5 stars BUY ARMBANDS AND STOP MOANING, 22 Oct. 2007
This review is from: Adrift [DVD] (DVD)
Next time you go for a dip in the middle of an ocean, check 1: leave somebody on board 2: buy a ladder 3: don't make a film about it.

I was disappointed. The cover explained the story and perhaps i built myself up to high expectations, but the film just lacked everything.

Given 2 stars as the yacht was nice.

1.0 out of 5 stars ENOUGH PLEASE, 22 Oct. 2007
How the heck did we reach number five. Charles Bronson has killed more people than i can count. Has nobody clocked him yet. I almost felt sorry for muggers !!

Please stop making these films. The first film was great and cutting edge but number five......ENOUGH
