Three criminals hide out after a bungled heist, but find they’re in the disused warehouse lair of a dog-fighting gang. Decent little thriller, with plenty for its decent cast to do; a competent job all around with some arty moments.
Red-neck heist movie. The plot jumps around a tad wildly but the whole thing holds together pretty well. Has a Coen brothers feel to it yet lacks the fun aspect and the characters you need, but enjoyable none the less.
Two conmen take down a mob boss in revenge for the killing of a friend. Jaunty 1930s-set caper with exceptional production design, fun performances, and an engaging plot. Recommended.
An elite anti-crime squad faces internal pressures and a new gang of bankrobbers. Superior French remake of the Nick Love/Ray Winstone Sweeney reboot, with an emphasis on strong action and humour. No classic, but efficient and brutal.
A brilliant ex-hacker is coerced into a heist being orchestrated by a paramilitary group. Glossy but dumb-as-rocks tech thriller with the usual hacking visual cliches and an eye on spectacle (Bullet-time explosions! Nudity! A bus in midair!) over logic.
Further proof of Black’s obsession with mismatched buddies and Christmas, this 90s actioner piles on the cliches and feels at times like a parody of what he started in Lethal Weapon. Fun nonetheless, Davis and Jackson clearly enjoyed every moment.
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.
