Cementing Nolan as one of the best directors working today, this is an incredible film. Surprisingly lean, this is still powerful stuff. Entirely lacking in sentiment, the depiction of the Dunkirk escape is both terrifying and unbearable. Amazing stuff.
Supremely enjoyable buddy cop progenitor that wrote the rule book on these films. Too old for this shit. Suicidal, psychotic new partner. Family man heading toward retirement. Shady ex-military bad guys. Torture. Blonde henchman. A proper action classic.
Entertaining enough small film, concerning the escalating events in an unplanned and unexpected hostage situation in small town USA. Good characters, ably played by a strong cast, and some funny moments ensure there is plenty to enjoy here.
Leonard can’t make new memories. Leonard’s wife was killed. Leonard needs to catch and kill her killer. Leonard doesn’t understand those around him. Leonard is at their mercy. Leonard does not understand what’s going on. Leonard can’t make new memories.
When a viral outbreak locks down a high rise office full of angry lawyers and heightens there inherent mania, blood, violence and madness ensues. Full of vim and vigour, and reminiscent of early Raimi, this is a thoroughly enjoyable pleasure.
Disjointed and woefully miscast, this is typical Besson fare. Sumptuous visuals and a cock sure swagger can’t mask awful dialogue and a plot that probably works better in visual novel form. A problematic attitude towards women doesn’t help matters either.
Biopic of Barry Seal, one time TWA pilot turned CIA stooge/bag man/cocaine runner/gun runner. This is breathless stuff, superbly handled by Liman and with a great central performance from Cruise. Riveting, and so outlandish it has to be real. 🙂
