Pitch Perfect 2 Review

Monday, 18 May 2015 21:56

In the vein of so many recent comedy sequels, Pitch Perfect 2, the sequel to 2012's surprisingly joyous a capella comedy hit Pitch Perfect, clearly knows what worked about its predecessor and sets out to replicate that. It's often successful, avoiding many of the pitfalls of copy-and-paste sequels that plagued the likes of The Hangover 2, but at times tries to give us too much of what we liked and ups the ante more than it needs to.

Avengers: Age of Ultron Review

Saturday, 25 April 2015 21:38

The 'Marvel Cinematic Universe' is a massive, money-spinning juggernaut that has taken franchise filmmaking to another level. Marvel Studios maybe didn't invent the idea of a shared universe for its characters but it's certainly set the gold standard that every other studio is currently flailing to replicate. So confident are they in their product, they've announced a release slate of films for the next five years, throwing more characters into a stew that's already bubbling over with comic book heavy hitters.

The Salvation Review

Friday, 24 April 2015 16:28

Considering it was funded in Scandanavia and shot in South Africa by a Danish director with an almost exclusively European cast, Kristian Levring's Western revenge tale The Salvation is certainly a bit of an oddity. Levring clearly knows the genre though, particularly Sergio Leone and Sam Peckinpah, and this is a film very much in the vein of some classic Westerns.

Child 44 Review

Thursday, 23 April 2015 21:49

"How can a film starring Tom Hardy, Gary Oldman and Noomi Rapace possibly be bad?", you might ask. Well Daniel Espinosa's grim, sluggish, muddled Soviet thriller Child 44 has all the answers.

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.
