Fast & Furious 7 Review

Monday, 13 April 2015 19:22

Beginning life as a humble rejig of Point Break for the street-racing world before eventually morphing into a huge, unwieldy, action movie behemoth, the Fast & Furious franchise has been on a long, strange journey in the 14 years since it began. The tragic real-life twist of star Paul Walker's death late in 2013 left the franchise in a state of flux but with the use of Walker's younger brothers and some slick CGI, latest instalment Fast & Furious 7 has made it to cinemas and it's a fitting tribute to its fallen star.

The Voices Review

Tuesday, 24 March 2015 22:20

Anytime Ryan Reynolds is taking a kicking for his latest big budget flop, whether it be The Green Lantern or RIPD, his defenders are always ready with examples of smaller, weirder films where Reynolds has impressed: "Yeah, but have you seen The Nines?" they'll cry, closely followed by "And what about Buried!?". Well, there's now another film to add to that Ryan Reynolds-can-actually-act canon: The Voices, a twisted, darkly funny and wildly uneven serial killer flick from Oscar-nominated Persepolis director Marjane Satrapi.

Wild Card Review

Monday, 23 March 2015 20:27

Wild Card marks the second time legendary screenwriter William Goldman has adapted his own novel Heat for the big screen. The first time was a 1980's Burt Reynolds thriller; now it's been repurposed as a vehicle for Jason Statham. Its origins aren't surprising considering how much it feels like a film from a bygone era, a throwback to old school action flicks that crucially – like its leading man - never takes itself too seriously.

The Gunman Review

Saturday, 21 March 2015 13:01

French action guru and Luc Besson prodigy Pierre Morel, the man best known for French parkour thriller District 13 and for launching Liam Neeson's career reinvention as an action star with Taken. He's now taken another Hollywood star better known for serious dramas than kicking ass and put him front and centre of a violent jaunt across Europe in The Gunman.

Run All Night Review

Sunday, 15 March 2015 20:18

They say the definition of insanity is trying the same thing over and over again and expecting different results, so after seeing espionage snooze-fest Unknown and dull airplane hijack thriller Non-Stop, you might be insane to expect anything other than a convoluted mess from Run All Night, the latest in the ongoing collaboration between Spanish director Jaume Collet-Serra and star Liam Neeson. It's a mildly pleasant surprise then that this father-son crime drama is a more watchable affair than the duo's previous efforts.

Chappie Review

Friday, 13 March 2015 16:03

After breaking out with 2009's District 9 – which garnered a Best Picture nomination – and disappointing with 2013's Elysium, South African sci-fi auteur Neill Blomkamp goes back to his Johannesburg roots for Chappie, a story about artificial intelligence that's brimming with ideas, sometimes to its detriment.

Unfinished Business Review

Tuesday, 10 March 2015 22:24

After hooking up on director Ken Scott's The Delivery Man – the remake of his own French-Canadian hit Starbuck – Scott and star Vince Vaughn are back together again for Unfinished Business, a slightly muddled, overly schmaltzy comedy that gets by on its upbeat tone and just enough genuine laughs.

It Follows Review

Wednesday, 04 March 2015 11:03

Though on the surface it might look like any other teen slasher flick, David Robert Mitchell's It Follows is a haunting and intelligent horror film that knows the genre inside out but isn't a slave to it, taking some seemingly obvious tropes and using them to examine the fears and anxieties of adolescence, particularly around sex and death.
