Stratton (2017, dir. Simon West)

A Special Boat Service operative races against time to prevent a terrorist attack. Utterly secondhand and dull thriller, lacking in decent action, watchable performances, or a script with an iota of originality. Astonishing this got a cinema release, when stronger fare goes straight to download/DVD.

Dead Man Down (2013, dir. Niels Arden Oplev)

A man seeksĀ revenge on the gangster who killed his family. Glum thriller that spends too much time on taking itself too seriously and with obvious mystery and romance subplots. Good technical credits, tho, and fun cameos (Armand Assante, F Murray Abraham).
