The Guard [DVD] <b>DVD</b> ~ Brendan Gleeson
The Guard [DVD] DVD ~ Brendan Gleeson
A very foul mouthed comedy thriller in which it seems not much happens, but yet when looking back it has so many sneaky twists and funny dialougue it's really a scene stealer all the time, with excellent cast and perfect direction, the film moves on it's own Irish charm.

Brendon Gleeson is excellent as the slightly slobbish addiction laden cop, who is thrown into the mix with the great Don Cheadle as a confident FBI agent, as they investigate drugs and murders.

A great supporting cast help, and the locations are stunning, add to the mix some violence and a great western style shoot out ending and this is a funny alternative comedy, though will not be to all… Read more

Unfaithful [2002] [DVD] DVD ~ Richard Gere
Better than expected thriller come drama featuring some very strong performances, stylish direction and a well written story, despite it all being done before.

A simple drama of an affair that gets out of hand and a jealous husband, that results in tragic circumstances.

A little slow at times, but worth a watch, even if it kind of ends on a a slow note rather than a big finale.

3.0 out of 5 stars Passable, 28 Aug 2014
Not quite diehard, but if you look at Bruce Willis as the action star this is one of his better efforts, purely based on the fact that it hasbquite an intellectual approach to the story. If looking for major action this is mearly a few bits of gunshots and a few stunts.

Plot wise it's a simple tale of a cop who acts as negotiator whilst being black mailed by the criminals who he's against, cue a few obvious twists and turns.

Not perfect but still watchable as an action thriller and quite well acted and directed, very stylish with the odd thrill thrown in.
