3.0 out of 5 stars The Mechanic has a Generic Problem, 14 Mar. 2011
This review is from: The Mechanic [DVD] (DVD)
'The Mechanic' is an action-thriller film, which is a remake of the 1972 film of the same name that starred Charles Bronson in the lead. The remake released in 2011 to negative reviews, however managed to become a moderate success at the box-office.

The story centres around Arthur Bishop (Jason Statham), a professional assassin who starts to mentor an apprentice (Ben Foster) who is related to one of his victims.

The movie has an interesting start and progresses at a fast pace with good action set-pieces. There are a few subtle twists throughout and also a couple in the climax.

The flaws are the predictable storyline, lifeless characters, pivotal scenes that are a bit rushed and a number of pointless/sleazy scenes.

Statham performs his trademark role in his normal way, nothing new. He's still a likeable action hero though. I'm not a fan of Ben Foster's but he performs well. Both actors share most of the screen time in the movie together, unfortunately there is no chemistry between them. Donald Sutherland is competent in a brief role. Tony Goldwyn is unconvincing.

The direction provided by Simon West is just about average only due to the exciting action choreography. The editing is abrupt and quite a high movie budget (about $40,000,000) seems to have been wasted as the money isn't justified on-screen.

The background music score by Mark Isham is classy and a highlight of the movie.

The remake fails to match the originals quality but still is watchable.

'The Mechanic', The Problem and The Fix are all straight-forward in the film. The only thing that's missing is a straight-forward audience. In the end, no harm watching this time-pass actioner and completing the job.

4.0 out of 5 stars Old is Gold, 24 Jan. 2011
This review is from: Red [DVD] (DVD)
'Red' is an action-comedy film that released in 2010 to positive reviews and became a box-office hit. The film is loosely based on the comic book series of the same name created by Warren Ellis and Cully Hamner, and published by Homage comics.

The movie centres around Frank Moses (Bruce Willis), a retired black-ops CIA agent who is hunted by a current CIA agent William Cooper (Karl Urban). As Frank attempts to figure out why he's wanted dead, he reunites with his retired colleagues (Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich and Hellen Mirren) looking for help.

The feature begins in a subtle manner and then gets into gear once Bruce Willis starts doing what he does best, beating up bad guys. The movie then progresses with stylish action and fine humor in the form of witty dialogue shared by the cast. Add in a number of twists, a love angle and we've got an entertainment package. The ending is also competent.

The only negative point is that the film promises a lot in the first half when it comes to the action quotient. But, in the end what you get is just enough to satisfy. Don't get me wrong, I like the movie, I just think it had the potential to reach new heights.

Bruce Willis at 55 years old is still my favourite action hero and it's a treat watching him perform action scenes with attitude, especially the fist-fighting. He's the top-dog as the wise-cracking Moses. Can't wait to see him in the fifth Die Hard installment. Another show-stealer is the fantastic John Malkovich who brings the house down as he enacts the role of a paranoid conspiracy theorist. His performance including his funny facial expressions works big time. Ahh Helen Mirren, she brings pure class to the feature. It's jaw-dropping to see how the woman maintains her elegance as she uses a machine gun that too with conviction. I'm a fan of Morgan Freeman's but he doesn't get much screen time to shine. Still good to see him partake. Richard Dreyfuss plays his part really well. A special mention for Karl Urban who nails it as Willis's nemesis. Their scenes together are fiery and exciting. Mary-Louise Parker as Willis's love interest is funny. Brian Cox as the Russian secret agent is first rate especially in the scenes he shares with Mirren. The great chemistry shared by the lead actors is evident on-screen, indicating that they enjoyed themselves making the movie.

The direction provided by Robert Schwentke is very impressive. Making a fun action movie with an ensemble cast is a feat in itself. Schwentke also surprised me with the way he defined the characters. For an action movie, the characters are brilliantly explained. The action is also stylish and appealing.

The music score by Christophe Beck is average.

In the end, I enjoyed the film mainly because of the charm of the veteran actors who were bursting with energy throughout the movie. Really shows that the likes of Willis, Malkovich, Mirren and Freeman haven't grown old but grown up into ripe ENTERTAINERS who mean business.

'Red' is a cleverly made subtle actioner that contains all the class.

4.0 out of 5 stars Resurrection in Style, 7 Jan. 2011
'Resident Evil: Afterlife' is a science-fiction action film that released in 2010 to undeserved negative reviews from the Critics. This is the fourth installment in a series of film adaptations based on Capcom's horror video game series Resident Evil. It is also the first film in the series that released in 3D in the cinemas (I watched the 2D version on DVD). This sequel has turned out to be a box-office hit and the highest-grossing film of the series.

I liked the original, 'Resident Evil' which was fresh and exciting at the time. The second installment, 'Resident Evil: Apocalypse' was a disaster and the third part, 'Resident Evil: Extinction' was just about average. After the third, I had given up on the series, but 'Resident Evil: Afterlife' has resurrected the franchise with a fine COMEBACK.

The movie centres around Alice (Milla Jovovich) who is searching for survivors in Los Angeles after the T-virus outbreak has turned most of the population to flesh-eating zombies. As she does this, Alice realises, all is not what it seems.

The movie begins with high-octane action, which is maintained until the end. The feature keeps referring to the prequel (Resident Evil: Extinction) as it progresses with twists and turns. Along the way there is enough tension and excitement to keep the viewer entertained. The finale also has a couple of twists.

The highlights of the movie are the most stylish action set-pieces I've seen in recent times. In one word, FANTASTIC.

The main flaw is the below-par and artificial acting by the lead cast. Also the plot is weak.

The character of Alice was made for Milla Jovovich who is perfect in the role, although the acting ain't great. Ali Larter as Claire Redfield makes her presence felt. Wentworth Miller as Chris Redfield is really wooden. Boris Kodjoe as Luther Wes is likeable. Shawn Roberts who plays the main villain, Albert Wesker fails in the part in all departments.

The direction provided by Paul W. S. Anderson is an accomplishment when it comes to making an all-out action movie. Now he can work on the acting of the performers.

The superb background music by Tomandandy (Composer Duo: Thomas Hajdu and Andy Milburn) is one of best scores of 2010. The ambient music on its own creates tension, fear, excitement and suspense. The fresh fusion of heavy-metal/electronic/drum music comes together brilliantly. The pulsating atmospheric intense music brings the action to life in a cool way.

I wasn't expecting much due to the two poor prequels, as a result I was pleasantly surprised. This installment is equally as good as the first part and depending on how you react to it, you might find that this movie BETTERS the original. For fans of the franchise, you'll love it.

'Resident Evil: Afterlife' is a stylish action feature that reaches the next level.

4.0 out of 5 stars Emotionally Draining, 1 Jan. 2011
This review is from: Badland [DVD] (DVD)
'Badland' is an Independent drama that released theatrically in America in 2007 and Direct-to-DVD in the UK in 2010. On its release the movie has been critically acclaimed but turned out to be a box-office failure mainly due to a limited release.

The film tells the harrowing story of an American soldier, Jerry Rice (Jamie Draven) who struggles with the realities of life and depression after he is discharged from his duties in Iraq.

The feature has a fantastic gripping start. The first ninety minutes, which makes the movie work, is spellbinding with touching emotions and award-winning acting. The vehicle then derails for most of the latter half due to erratic moments and long scenes, which fail to come alive or show a purpose. The movie does have a reprival in the form of an unexpected climax that in a way gives you a sigh of relief.

The main problem is the excessive length (2 hours 45 minutes), which causes a loss of interest during the latter stages. Also some erratic sequences/pointless sub-plot affects the engrossing feel of the movie.

The performance of Jamie Draven is what really makes the film work. His portrayal of a destitute soul is excellent. When you pay attention to his eyes and facial expressions, you'll literally feel the pain. Grace Fulton (Celina Rice) who enacts the role of Jerry's child is incredible. The sensitive father-daughter relationship is one of the highlights of the movie. Chandra West (Oli Danilou) looks the part but her acting is artificial. Joe Morton (Max Astin) is a good actor and initially is likeable. After a number of pointless long scenes he shares with Draven, his presence becomes annoying though.

The direction provided by Francesco Lucente is first-rate when it come to the acting of the lead actors, the haunting atmosphere and a moving story. Where he fails is the length of the movie, which could've been easily trimmed by 1 hour.

The background music score by Ludek Drizhal is very uplifting although not suitable in some scenes where something more serious/haunting would've been appropriate.

The film concentrates on Post Traumatic Street Disorder, lack of urgent support given to war veterans and that after war there are no winners. As an audience, the movie with its emotionally challenging events will raise more questions than answers. In the end there is hope though.

'Badland' is thought provoking quality cinema.

4.0 out of 5 stars Action Blast, 20 Dec. 2010
This review is from: The A-Team [DVD] (DVD)
'The A-Team' is an action film based on the television series of the same name. The movie released in 2010 to mixed reviews both from critics and the original cast. The film was a moderate box-office success, performing below expectations.

First of all, the name of the television series/film comes from "A-Teams (consists of Special Forces Military Officers)", the nickname given to Operational Detachments Alpha (ODA) in the Vietnam War. The series was of the action-adventure genre and was an international hit, which surprised the makers who didn't expect it to be a success. The show ran for five seasons on the NBC television network, from 1983 to 1986 for a total of 98 episodes, during which it gained cult-status. The series was cancelled during the fifth season, after the thirteenth episode due to falling television ratings. The show starred George Peppard as Colonel John "Hannibal" Smith, Dirk Benedict as First Lieutenant Templeton "Faceman" Peck, Dwight Schultz as Captain H.M. "Howling Mad" Murdock and Laurence Tureaud (aka Mr. T) as Master Sergeant Bosco Albert ("B.A.") Baracus. Out of the lead cast, Mr. T's portrayal became an instant hit making him a worldwide cult icon. He's still to this day reaping the benefits of his popularity.

The film centres around The A-Team (consists of Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper, Quinton Jackson, and Sharlto Copley), an elite army team who after being falsely prisoned, attempt to clear their names.

The start of the movie, although a bit rushed, is rapid with exciting full-throttle action, which is maintained until the end. The main characters all get worthy introductions and we get to to see how 'The A-Team' comes together. The feature progresses with some gripping moments, fine twists and funny one-liners from the lead cast. The climax is intelligent and satisfying.

The negative things for me was the over-the-top mindless action at times. But hey, if it's believable on the silver-screen then it's all cool. Also the plot is a bit wafer-thin and the lead characters are not defined well. Further to this, all fans of the original, keep viewing after the end credits have rolled and youl'll see the blink-and-you-miss cameos from Benedict and Schultz. From a fans point of view the way the cameos were done are embarrassing. Even the actors are now regretting appearing in the movie.

Liam Neeson (John "Hannibal" Smith) steals the show for me with a cool and gritty performance, which is quite different than Peppard's portrayal, in a good way. Bradley Cooper (Templeton "Face" Peck) is slick and Sharlto Copley (H.M. "Howling Mad" Murdock) is very amusing. Both do justice to the characters made famous by Benedict and Schultz. Quinton Jackson's (Bosco Albert "B.A." (Bad Attitude) Baracus) acting is just about alright. The makers should've just brought back Mr. T, he still looks the part. In the end, the chemistry between The A-Team members is first-rate with plenty of humor. Jessica Biel (Charissa Sosa) and Patrick Wilson (CIA Agent Lynch) are effective supporting actors.

The direction provided by Joe Carnahan is stylish with impressive execution of the action scenes. He does a fine job in making this adaptaion work.

The background music score provided by Alan Silvestri is enjoyable, however I prefer the original A-Team theme.

The main question is, is the adaptation faithful to the series. The answer is no. But, it's a fresh interpretation designed for the current audience and I LIKED IT.

'The A-Team' successfully completed the task in a contemporary way that was simply FUN.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fair Mystery Thriller, 4 Dec. 2010
This review is from: Horsemen [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
'Horsemen Of The Apocalypse' is a serial killer movie, clearly inspired by the classic movie 'Seven'. It had a limited theatrical release in the USA and a direct to DVD release in the UK. On both releases it was critically panned.

The movie tells the story of Detective Aidan Breslin (Dennis Quaid) who starts investigating a series of violent murders, which is linked with Biblical prophecies concerning the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse: War, Famine, Pestilence, and Death.

The movie is intriguing at the start, slowly unfolds and ends with a twist, which I did not expect, however was not the best climax. I expected more from the climax because the movie promises a lot but settles for less. Also in the movie, there is a lack of tension building, which is essential for its genre.

The performance of the lead actor, Dennis Quaid is below par as he is not in his element and looks very tired/rough. The performance, which I found to be impressive was Zhang Ziyi's. The direction provided by Jonas Åkerlund is strictly average as a lot of the scenes are abrupt and disjointed. This can also be blamed on the editing and a flawed screenplay. The production values are average.

The movie does not come anywhere near to the likes of 'Seven' but is still watchable and quite interesting.

'Horsemen Of The Apocalypse' is average to above average when it comes to entertainment if you're not expecting much. It had the potential of becoming a classic of its genre.

The screen resolution for the Blu-ray disc is 1080p (1920 x 1080 progressive scan) and the sound format is HD MA 5.1 Dolby Digital or 2.0 Stereo. The picture quality is great with defined cinematography and crystal clear sharpness. The sound quality is clear and crisp including the dialogue.

Recommended for hardcore mystery/thriller fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Grandmaster Returns, 26 Nov. 2010
This review is from: Ip Man 2 [DVD] (DVD)
'Ip Man 2' is a martial-arts sequel to the fantastic epic, 'Ip Man', which released in 2008. The sequel released to positive reviews and box-office success, making it one of the highest grossing Hong Kong features of 2010.

The movie continues to concentrate on the life of the martial artist, Ip Man (Grandmaster of Wing Chun) who was the real life Kung fu master of Bruce Lee. The makers originally intended to focus on the relationship between Ip Man and his student Bruce Lee in the sequel. However, due to a breakdown in agreeing the film rights with Lee's descendants, the idea was scrapped.

The second part shows Ip Man's (Donnie Yen) movements in Hong Kong, which is under British colonial rule. He attempts to promote Wing Chun (specializes in close-range combat) there by tutoring interested students. As he does this, he faces problems from rival students and masters of other forms of martial-arts. His main rival turns out to be Hung Chun-nam (Sammo Hung) who is the master of the martial-art, Hung Ga. This is a southern Chinese martial art associated with the Chinese folk hero Wong Fei Hung, who was a master of Hung Ga. The hallmarks of Hung Ga are deep low stances and strong hand techniques.

I'll start with the flaws first, which are evident if you compare the sequel with the first installment. The story is a bit one-dimensional, the drama is not gripping most of the time and the pace is really slow barring the final 30-40 minutes. As a result, the film struggles to keep the attention of the viewer. Also the performances of the British actors is quite poor. Saying that, this outing still packs a serious punch. The flaws only exist due to the high standard set by the prequel. If watched as a stand-alone feature, this movie is great viewing.

The movie is salvaged by the high-octane and moving/gripping final 30-40 minutes, the strong performances of the lead actors, the action scenes (although fewer than the prequel) and the heart-thumping finale.

Donnie Yen shines again as the hero, he is simply a brilliant actor. He nails the martial-arts scenes with pure energy. Sammo Hung is top-notch and matches Yen in the fight scenes. When both partake in the same scene its a treat to watch. It's clear that both actors have the utmost respect for each other. Watching the two fight is truly enjoyable. Simon Yam who had a very likeable role in the first part, is wasted on this occasion. Darren Shahlavi (Taylor "The Twister" Milos) who enacts the role of the main villain looks the part but doesn't have the acting skills.

The direction provided by Wilson Yip is acceptable. It seems like he played it safe, not trying to better the first installment. He did all the hard work in the prequel and had the ability to make this superior. This is Yip and Yen's fifth collaboration as director and actor, must say their team always produces.

The action choreography by Sammo Hung is not exciting as it was in the prequel. I still enjoyed it, mainly because of Yen's ability to make the martial-arts look fun and thrilling on the siver-screen. Hung does a good job executing the scenes where martial-arts is pitted against western boxing, it's fresh and entertaining. The final fight is worth the wait.

The background music score by Kenji Kawai in 'Ip Man' was superb and added excitement to the feature. On this occasion I thought the music was going to be a compensating factor but it wasn't to be, it was just average. The original soundtrack should've just been used again.

I'm a big fan of the first part, which has become one of my favourite movies of all time. The main question is, does the sequel match its predecessors all-round quality. Unfortunately, the answer is, "No". As a result, Yen and Yip who were planning 'Ip Man 3', have decided against making the third part. However, the sequel is still a competent and enjoyable feature.

In the end 'Ip Man 2' is not as action-packed/intense/emotional as 'Ip Man'. But, I was still a satisfied man once the end credits had started rolling. For me, I was happy just to see Yen back as Ip Man.

'Ip Man 2' is again a fine martial-arts epic that should be witnessed by movie lovers. It's a must-watch, especially for fans of Donnie Yen and the original.

4.0 out of 5 stars Chilling, 22 Nov. 2010
This review is from: The Experiment [DVD] (DVD)
'The Experiment' is a fact-based psychological thriller that released Direct-to-DVD in 2010 to positive reviews. It's a remake of the critically acclaimed 2001 German film, 'Das Experiment', which was directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel.

The movie is based on the controversial Stanford prison experiment (resembled in Mario Giordano's novel, 'Black Box'), which was a study of the psychological effects of becoming a prisoner or prison guard. The experiment was carried out in 1971 by a team of researchers led by psychology professor, Philip Zimbardo at Stanford University in the United States. The goal of the experiment was to understand abusive prison situations. 24 male participants were recruited and took part in an intended two-week prison simulation, which ended up getting out-of-hand.

The movie tells the story of 26 men who partake in the experiment, which will earn them $14,000 each, if they abide by the set rules and complete 2 weeks. The participants are situated in a prison setting and are either given the role of a prisoner (Adrien Brody & Clifton Collins Jr.) or a guard (Forest Whitaker). The movie thereafter concentrates on the deteriorating relationship between the prisoners & the guards and the escalating situations.

The movie has a settling start introducing the characters. You then witness the pace accelerating with each tension filled scene, right until the end. The movie progresses with gripping emotional drama and a flurry of unsettling/disturbing situations, which leave a lasting effect. The climax is acceptable but doesn't provide a closure, which is unfortunate.

The second flaw after the ending is that there are no actors (barring the start where Fisher Stevens makes a short appearance as a researcher) enacting a pivotal role of a researcher. This could've defined the purpose of the experiment further adding an extra dimension to the story.

Adrien Brody steals the show with a fantastic performance. Forest Whitaker performs a complex role with ease making his character crawl under your skin. The tension between Brody and Whitaker really gets you going. Clifton Collins Jr. also leaves a mark.

The direction provided by Paul Scheuring is impressive and realistic. Hats off to him for causing the lead actors to produce award winning performances.

One thing I can happily say after watching the movie, is that authority and power ain't for me.

One thing I don't understand is, why this feature didn't get a theatrical release, it sure did deserve it.

'The Experiment' is a compelling experience that will leave you in a state of unnerve. Final words, WATCH IT.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Finale, 29 Oct. 2010
'The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest' is a Swedish crime-thriller film. The movie has received critical acclaim and has turned out to be a financial success. It's an adaptation of the novel of the same name by the late Swedish author/journalist Stieg Larsson. This adaptation is the final part of Larsson's Millennium Trilogy, which is a series of three bestselling novels. The other two novels are titled 'The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo' & 'The Girl Who Played with Fire'. The novels were published in 2005, 2006 and 2007 to widespread positive reviews. The movie adaptations of all three novels were released in Sweden in 2009 and were box-office hits.

I've seen the first two installments, both of which were competent thrillers. 'The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo' was fresh and compelling and set a high standard. The second part, 'The Girl Who Played with Fire' was not as good as the former but still enjoyable. The final part for me is the pick of the lot and a sensational swan song.

The movie centres around Lisbeth Salander (Noomi Rapace) who is hospitalized after the events in 'The Girl Who Played with Fire'. She is then put on trial where she takes on the Swedish Authorities. As this happens Salander's friend, Mikael Blomkvist (Michael Nyqvist) uses all his investigative skills to help her succeed.

The movie begins where the previous one ended and starts off at a fast pace, which is maintained all the way through. Over 2 hours of viewing just flew by leaving me gagging for more. The film was filled with heightened tension and excitement from start to finish. The intense court-room scenes in the latter half were gripping and kept me glued to the screen. The movie then had the climax I always wanted and brought the curtain down on a TERRIFIC TRILOGY.

Noomi Rapace is the heart and soul of the movie with a powerful performance and a dynamic screen presence. Michael Nyqvist provides brilliant support. Although Rapace and Nyqvist don't share many scenes in this film, when they do, the positive chemistry is visible. Anders Ahlbom as Dr. Peter Teleborian (antagonist) does the job by giving you the creeps. Another actor who is worth a mention is Annika Hallin. She enacts the role of Salander's lawyer with total conviction.

The direction provided by Daniel Alfredson is second to none. A lot was expected from him for the finale and he duly obliged. He ends the trilogy in the best possible manner.

The final film adaptation of Larsson's Millennium Trilogy ties up all loose ends, which a lot of sequels and trilogies have failed to do in recent times.

The finale is unmissable for followers of the series and fans of court room thrillers.

'The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets' Nest' provides a cracking closure and gives you exactly what you want in style.
