Street Kings [ 2008 ] [ Hits:3108 ]
Review: So Keanu Reeves is back, but not in black. He’s a supercop for the LAPD and his ass is on the line, after rescuing two young girls. His execution style round-up of some Korean gangsters leaves a bad taste in his colleague’s mouth. Not only is Washington bitter about Ludlow’s “heroism”, but he’s also convinced that the supercop is a racist. Ludlow’s hard heart, alcoholic binges and quest for justice at all costs, sends him on a mission to avenge his would-be enemy and uncover a majo...

Quantum of Solace [ 2008 ] [ Hits:3484 ]
Review: Quantum of Solace is Daniel Craig’s second outing as James Bond, after a successful entry into the character in Casino Royale. The discussion around Craig’s inadequacies for the role was dismissed shortly after audiences and critics gave the blonde Bond the red carpet treatment. His rogue appearance and brutal action redefined the finesse of Brosnan, while retaining the elements that make the character so famous. However, Quantum of Solace is a different kind of Bond. The film is named after...

Death Race [ 2008 ] [ Hits:3730 ]
Review: Death Race is a loose remake of Roger Corman’s Death Race 2000 (1986) (featured movie poster). Corman’s vision is recreated by Paul W.S. Anderson (Resident Evil) for the 2000 generation as a tribute and a cash cow. The movie doesn’t hold back in terms of visual effects and violence. In many ways, this could have been made by Manga as a video game prequel in a similar fashion to Dead Space: Downfall. The graphics are intense and will appeal to video gamers, who thrived on titles like Carmag...

Fast & Furious 4 [ 2009 ] [ Hits:3456 ]
Review: Fast & Furious is yet another dazzling display of muscles, speed and power. This sequel reunites the original pair of Paul Walker and Vin Diesel in a grudge sting to bring down a big drug cartel and take revenge. The cars are flashy, the women are sexy and the men are as macho as action men from the ’80s. The franchise definitely has a formula for the masses and it’s more about looks than substance. Anyone going to see Fast & Furious must realise that its brawn and body over brains. The stor...

300 [ 2006 ] [ Hits:7035 ]
Review: 300 is essentially the story of how 300 Spartans defeated an army of Persians at least 20 times their number. The Battle of Thermopylae was dramatised as a historical war adventure in The 300 Spartans (1962). Frank Miller was inspired by this story and film, and interpreted it in his graphic novel called 300. Years later, we have the follow-up to the smash hit Frank Miller adaptation of Sin City with 300. Except this isn’t any old remake, this is refreshing cinematic brilliance. The comic book...

Mission: Impossible III [ 2006 ] [ Hits:2977 ]
Review: Mission: Impossible III is the third instalment in the successful MI series (pretty obvious right?). Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) is brought back into the action (will he ever die?) and is pitted against sadistic arms dealer Owen Davian (Philip Seymour Hoffman). His first “impossible” mission is to recover a fellow IMF (Impossible Mission Force) operative, who is missing. His plans to settle down with Julia (Michelle Monhagan), his new fiancée, are disrupted and he’s forced to go undercover wi...
