Killer Elite [DVD]
Killer Elite [DVD]
Dvd ~ Jason Statham
Offered by A ENTERTAINMENT
Price: £3.94

3.0 out of 5 stars Well it's a nice action packed movie but, 10 Aug. 2016
This review is from: Killer Elite [DVD] (DVD)
Well it's a nice action packed movie but ...
to be professional they're very sloppy ... on both sides and so many times, ooh ... one for all: dustmen and painters, each with a clear earpiece, oh, c'mon ... well stake out and tailing done like amateurs ... etc. etc.
'Sides there are some mistakes here and there too: for instance at the beginning of the movie it says it's 1980 and then, one year later ...
but one of the former Mirbat SAS is killed in 1980, so it reads the newspaper; some pieces of equipment not yet available at that time etc.
I'd say it's a Bruce Willis type of movie.
Average.

1.0 out of 5 stars Still I can't figure out how bad a movie this is, 12 July 2016
This review is from: Point Break (2015) (Amazon Video)
I think I just watched superman vs batman ... oh no it was point break.
Still I can't figure out how bad a movie this is.
Once again in the eye of the americans everybody else is just a moron; no way the Carabinieri would be so stupid.
And again, a bank up in the mountains, in a small village ? Loaded with cash ? Besides banks are open on saturdays, in Italy.
One last thing the lorry carrying a plate starting with ZZ: there are no plates starting with ZZ, not yet.
The first movie starring Reeves, Swayze, and Busey was so much better.
Be advised folks.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horr ... ible, 26 Aug. 2012
This review is from: Zombie 108 [DVD] (DVD)
I've seen the movie.
I've hardly seen something worse: the make up is ok, but
1)the story is senseless
2)acting is hideous
3)direction is nonexistent
well you got me.
Keep away
Cheers

1.0 out of 5 stars Could it get any worse ?, 20 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This movie really gives a new meaning to the word: BORING.
Well, dull has got a new meaning too.
Never read the books but the former movies weren't bad
(except the last one, lessay it was so and so) but this
one is shockingly ... boring, I really can't think of
another word.

5.0 out of 5 stars Go Australia !, 17 Nov. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Aussies did quite a job.

I spent quite a time in Australia and some in Melbourne,
not to say I've been to St. Kilda a few times.

Anyway the whole series is definetely grappling since episode one.
I really can't dig all those low ranking critics; maybe they all
seduced by the american series, but a big budget doesn't always
stand for a good product.

I can't deny that the americans can do their job (take a look at "The Shield"
for instance) but they're not the only ones (thank God) and the Brits, the
Aussies, not to forget the Irish of course (there are so many good
irish movies) are there to show them.

Go Aussies, go.

2.0 out of 5 stars A pity, 17 Nov. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've been following Spooks since season one and I always found it
an amazing series; the plots, the characters, the actors, there was seriously
no flaw.
So I was looking forward to season 8 with a great sense of anticipation.

Unfortunately I was really disappointed.

The first four episodes are really dull and I forced myself not to skip them,
the plots are extremely boring, seen already in other series where they have been developed better; the characters are forced into following the plot and sometimes they even seem foolish.
The latter 4 are not that bad but they undoubtedly lack the adrenaline of all the episodes of every single past season.

Here the sum total, I guess that a drop like that may be forgiven but I really hope the real Spooks will be back again in season 9 which, by the way, I will purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Astounding as usual, 7 Aug. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Spooks - Series 7 [DVD] (DVD)
I've stumbled upon the first season by chance and found it
amazing; soon I was ordering the second and the third.
Then I kept an eye on every release date.

As in every tv series (and movie) people are looking for entertainment,
being that suspense, thriller, action (and so on), all subjects that
you can find plenty of in this series.

What more can I say, october 11th is approaching fast.

Cheers

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but not very good, 7 Aug. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Cambridge Spies [DVD] [2003] (DVD)
I did enjoy this series though I found a little bit too soft.
I gotta give other reviewers that there might be some cliches,
but all in all a good effort.
Good actors too.

"The company" is far better though.


Daybreakers [DVD]
Daybreakers [DVD]
Dvd ~ Willem Dafoe
Offered by wantitcheaper
Price: £3.42

4.0 out of 5 stars An old story but full of life, 7 Aug. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Daybreakers [DVD] (DVD)
The idea which is the leitmotiv of the movie
might not be a brand new one but the film
has got its positive moments, and more than one.
That said, knowing the basis of the story, the movie
unravels in a good way, it doesn't have sudden stops
and it never turns out dead in the water.

Not ammy award material but undoubtedly
entertaining.
