A revenger, a robber baron, a bandit, and a mail-order bride coincide on the same remote farmhouse. Genius Western, distilling the last three decades of genre filmmaking into a single movie. Elegaic, definitive, and unmissable. Recommended,
Mash-up of Die Hard and The Towering Inferno; there’s little new here, but what there is is highly enjoyable as The Rock gets caught up in a revenge-heist in the world’s tallest building whilst it’s on fire. Well paced and decent popcorn fodder length. 😀
A hunt for a child snatched by wolves is more complex than it first seems. Hugely impressive wintry contemporary Western, with perhaps a touch of the supernatural. Doesn’t give up its answers easy. Highly recommended.
A restaurant enforcer had one job. Not doing that job leads to a chaotic sprawl of violence and revenge as he finds his life smashed apart by his gangster boss. This is a superior revenge flick, with great fight scenes and strong performances throughout.
When a secret agent’s fiance is horribly murdered, it triggers an ever spiralling cycle of violence between the killer and the agent. Pulling no punches, this is a dark and brutal film. Gory and unflinching, it’s still a riveting watch. Recommended.
A direct continuation of the story from 5 sees this move at breakneck pace. Cruise has never ran so much and the double crosses and face swapping are enjoyable as ever. Great stunts and frantic action scenes see the series staying on top form. Excellent.
Another review? Sure! Here’s Eamonn’s.
A desperate-for-money martial arts instructor takes a job as a debt collector. Okay thick ear, with a fight every 5 minutes and some comic moments. Old-school in many ways, and with a tacked-on plot that doesn’t quite work, but reasonable fun for fisticuffs fans.
