An industrial spy leaves himself clues to solve the crimes of which he’s now accused. An SF twist on a Hitchcock plot (based on a Philip K Dick story), this lumpen chase thriller gets bogged down early and doesn’t relax into what Woo – when unrestrained – does best.
After the events of Dawn of Justice, Bruce Wayne assembles a team to combat the new threat of Steppenwolf. Okay series continuation, with a lighter tone; a straightforward plot and a stagey look are distractions from an at-times impressive cast.
Want another perspective? Here’s Lemonsquirtle’s view.
The rise of a hoodlum during Prohibition. Handsome, lovingly made, but slow, baggy, and uninvolving gangster pic. Clearly a labour of love, but too indebted to its source novel’s structure to make an engaging movie, despite good moments along the way.
A forensic accountant with social skills issues is also an assassin, specialising in killing international criminals. Oddball action drama with a weird premise and a lead character with the kind of autism found only in movies. Not terrible, but feels like three different spec scripts combined into one.
A crack team of misfit oil drillers is sent into space to blow up an asteroid on a collision course with Earth. Bombastic basic training/mission action flick with some comic moments and all of the director’s penchant for wearying excess when unrestrained.
