Five former soldiers plan a robbery on a drug lord’s jungle hideout. Well-sustained heist-goes-wrong thriller with a military angle. A superb cast lifts straightforward genre material, somewhat elevated by serious handling and moviemaking craftsmanship throughout.
Surprising feel good movie based on the real life events of a would be female wrestler. Funny, witty with a confident cast and a plenty to like. Very enjoyable!
A couple get more than they bargained for when fostering kids. At times funny family film with more chuckles than laughs. Labours the heavy ‘message’ too obviously and contains some horrendous stereotypes. Cast manage to keep it together. Might kill an afternoon.
A posse chases a vengeful ex-soldier across famine-torn Ireland. Vivid and evocative revenge drama, using Western genre tropes to support a specific Irish story with contemporary wider relevance. Some unnecessary and iffy CG mattes aside, this is great stuff.
Five years after her family’s murder, a mother returns to the US for revenge. Straightforward action fantasy with a committed lead performance and an outsider’s view of LA. Not great, but there’s a couple of interesting plot wrinkles along the way.
