Multiple parties search for the source of a New Orleans street drug, which grants a superpower for five minutes. Flashy and confident if superficial mashup of Limitless and the 70s TV show Gemini Man. Plenty of incidental fun tho, especially in the first two acts.
A European flight’s cockpit is overrun by hijackers. Brisk single-location thriller told in more-or-less real-time, gaining much of its effect through its intensity and via a sturdy lead performance. No real surprises, but an efficient and effective drama nevertheless.
Time travel based sci-fi thriller with a clever premise and well constructed script. A strong cast compliments the action which keeps you on your toes. Very enjoyable.
US high-school revisioning of Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew. Effective and funny throughout with just enough Bard to justify its existence, and a slew of breakout performances, though most credit goes to the sublime Larry Miller as an overprotective dad.
