A year after Lost Bullet, Lino has a chance to get justice for the deaths of his mentor and brother. Amped-up sequel delivering as before in close combat, chases, reversals, and vehicular mayhem. A slightly lighter touch this time: sterling genre (SF and western touches in the mix) entertainment all the same.
An American car thief in Berlin commits to a heist to fund his girlfriend’s kidney transplant. Straightforward chase thriller that takes an age to get going. There’s some good direction, and supporting villains Hopkins and Kingsley are fun, but the script is rote, foregrounding coincidences rather than ingenuity.
An elite assassin on the verge of retirement is targeted for execution. A good-looking action flick that takes ages to tell us what the poster does. One great action sequence aside, it’s underpowered, though a game support cast of Brit character actors do their best with none-more-90s material.
After discovering the truth about their existence, two clones escape their high-tech facility. Okay near-future (set in 2019) chase thriller that takes a while to get going, but then delivers in the kinetic style typical of its director.
A jaded hitman protects a teenager from assassination. Clunkily-scripted but well-directed pan-Europe chase thriller with bags of well-choreographed lo-fi action. A hugely competent job done with very average raw materials.
An inexperienced soldier is trapped behind enemy lines in Belfast during the Troubles. Outstanding chase flick which wears its superbly-realised political context lightly to support its well-sustained and tense thriller narrative. Highly recommended.
