Film Reviews

clapper2019

Captain Marvel (12A) was a very funny & highly entertaining 90’s set sci-fi actioner with a great 90’s soundtrack to boot. similar to Guardians of the Galaxy. but not as good as Shazam, nor the first female marvel film 2005’s Elektra. but its definitely up there with them. 4/5. 🙂

Avengers Endgame (12A) was a really good epic conclusion to all of the marvel comic film characters. great action & humor & moving in places too. but its not one of my favourite films in the entire marvel film series. due to its sluggish three hour run time. but still fun. 3½/5.

Fighting with My Family (12A) was a funny & touching true story based on WWE’s Paige & her familys life & her making it to the top of the wwe. great performances. wrestling cameos. wrestling action & sometimes a relatable. a important & inspiring film for wrestling fans & people who are different alike. 4/5

A remake of the 2012 france film ‘Untouchables’, The Upside (12a) still is a solidly well acted, funny & moving counterpart to its original, due to its main performances from Bryan Cranston. Kevin Hart & Nicole Kidman. not as good as the original. but still a decent recent remake. 3½/5.

Nobodys Fool (15) is a easy watch, with good performances & story for the most part. but it didnt have enough humor in it for me. its definitely watchable just for Tiffany Haddish performance alone. also TV’s Supergirl’s Mehcad Brooks. Chris Rock & Whoopi Goldberg are good too. 2½.

The Last Sharknado its About Time, may have been utterly ridiculous, silly & over the top like the other films, but man, I certainly enjoyed it & went with it. this time Fin & friends time traveling through history to save humanity. plus a personal journey for Nova too. 3/5. 

Johnny English Strikes Again was just harmless fun, like the previous two films were. with Rowan Atkinson returning as the humorous spy. fab cameos & performance from some british greats too. also 2007’s Hitman & Quantum of Solace actress Olya Kurylenko provides good support. 3/5.

Bad Times at the El Royale was fantastic. filled with twists & turns. outstanding performances from the cast. also featuring a brilliant soundtrack & it made you think. much better then Free Fire. but its the best thriller since 10 Cloverfield Lane. highly recommended. 4/5.

I absolutely loved Predator/Predator 4 (15), had a really good story. fantastic gory action. awesome looking predators & a range of great characters. funny in parts too & Jacob Tremblay played a brilliantly convincing & realistic representation of autism. although I would love to see another film. I seriously think this should be the last one & a great final film to end the series. thank you to The Last Boy Scout & Last Action Hero screen writer Shane Black for making this film. 4/5 🙂

Christopher Robin was wonderfully acted, with a lovely story & great & faithful voice acting. Ewan Mcgregor really channels a older version of the title role very well. especially when dealing with responsibilities between his job, family life & Winnie the Pooh & friends. 3/5 

The Meg (12a) was the most disappointing film I have seen. its boring & restricted of human blood. its just full of talking for nearly an hour. the shark only eats three people with no blood. Ruby Rose’s performance wasnt very good. theres been alot of better made shark films before this. 1/5 

AntMan & The Wasp (12a) wasn’t just as good as the first AntMan film. but its the best Marvel Studios film todate, with a very good story. brilliant action. special effects & acting. also its very funny. plus make sure you stay after the end credits. 5/5 

Deadpool 2 (15) wasn’t just a superior film to the first, it had a better story & heart. bigger & better action. It was even funnier & just a lot of fun & felt more of a Deadpool film. Josh Brolin as Cable & Zazie Beetz as Domino were stand outs, also please stay through the end credits. 5/5

Justice League was awesome, it had great action. character development. a really good story. humor & I loved Danny Elfman’s score (which also added certain nostalgia). It reminded me abit of the video game Injustice. Plus please stay during the end credits. I enjoyed the ride. 4/5

The Greatest Showman this film had everything I love in a movie done to top quality, the songs were fantastic, the cast, direction and storyline! If this is your kind of film you won’t be able to see it only once. An uplifting energetic explosion of delight! 5billiontrillion/5

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 The cuteness of baby groot almost over shadows everything else, however everything else is fantastic too! The characters we had come to love from the first film bringing us action and emotion, with plenty of laughter, the opening scene is mint! 100% entertained. Stay for all the extra clips during the credits too. Fave film of all time! A good film to watch with the family too! 5/5

DVD Film Review: Death Race 2050 (15) was as darkly funny & campier sequel then its 1975 original Death Race 2000. the action is still great & this time it introduces some fun new characters. much better then the disappointing Death Race: Beyond Anarchy. plus TV’s The Shannara Chronicles actor Manu Bennett plays a brilliant Frankenstein. 4/5

DVD Film Review: Anna & the Apocalypse (15) was a highly original british zombie musical, filled with great fun & likeable characters & performances. humor. a little gore. its moving & also has fab original songs. 5/5 🙂

DVD Film Review: it may have been loosely based on the video game of the same name. but Rampage was still a entertaining action adventure, about Dwanye “The Rock” Johnson teaming up with his sign language gorilla George fighting against a giant sized crocodile & wolf. The Losers & The Walking Dead actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan is fantastic in it too 3/5

DVD Film Review: Army of Frankensteins was a solid & fun historical action horror, with tongue in cheek humor. great action & story. likeable heros & it has plenty of unexpected surprises too. the actors have good chemistry & make sure you watch the extra scene during the end credits. fantastic stuff 4/5 🙂

DVD Film Review: Solo: A Star Wars Story (12) was definitely better then The Force Awakens. The Last Jedi & the first two prequels The Phantom Mence & Attack of the Clones. Alden Ehrenreich was no Harrison Ford, but still played a great different Han Solo. also Ron Howard’s direction is fantastic. 5/5. 🙂

DVD Film Review: Besides from its shaky cam problems in some scenes, Mohawk (18) is still a fantastic historical action adventure. filled with dredd. atmosphere. excellent performances. amazing musical score & gory violence. TV’s Hemlock Grove actress Kaniehtiio Horn is phenomenonal (2018). 5/5 

DVD Film Review: Scorched Earth (15) was a decent enough post apocalyptic action western. starring In The Blood actress Gina Carano as the awesome main hero getting revenge, with the help of John Hannah & also featuring a great villain played by Ryan Robbins. but it feels like a rejected. but fun what if sequel to Richard Stanley’s amazing DustDevil. 3/5 

DVD Film Review: Based on the 1970’s superhero series of the same name, 2016s Electra Woman & Dyna Girl (15) starring Grace Helbig & Hannah Hart as the titled heros was a blast. I had a good time watching it. very funny with great characters. some good action scenes. a clever parody of hollywood & superheros. plus the end credit theme song is ace. fantastic stuff. 4/5 

DVD Review: Accident Man (15) is a brilliantly brutal action film, with also a great sense of humor. cracking fight scenes. entertaining characters & a really good story. Scott Adkins. Ray Stevenson. Amy Johnston. Michael J White & others, you could tell they were having a good time in their roles. 4/5

DVD Film Review: Co produced by Con Air & Pirates of the Caribbean producer Jerry Bruckheimer & directed by Adrian Lyne, who went on to direct Fatal Attraction & Jacob’s Ladder. Flashdance (15) was uplifting, inspiring & a feelgood 80’s dance film classic. which deals with conquering & never letting go of your dreams. while dealing with mature themes too. also featuring a awesome soundtrack & memorable dance scenes involving the films main character, brilliantly played by Jennifer Beals (who is also body doubled by Marine Jahan & male dancer Richard Colon in some of the dance scenes). its also very funny & has afew other great characters, who you will care about too. this will definitely make you get up & dance & be proud of who you are (1983). 4/5 

DVD Film Review: Cyborg X (18) was a ultimate bloodbath of destructive sci-fi action, about a group of survivors with the help of Danny Trejo. very similar to Richard Stanley’s 1990 masterpiece Hardware. also with great characters & story too. 5/5 

DVD Film Review: Directed by Wild Hogs & tv’s Shameless USA actor William H Macy. The Layover (15) is a little fun comedy, about two best friends Alexandra Daddario & Kate Upton competing against each other over hot tv’s Valor actor Matt Barr, while on holiday. its a worthy funny enough rental. 3/5
