1. THE GUNMAN MOVIE REVIEW
Review: First off, the most impressive aspect about Gunman is the obvious effort Penn (who also co-writes and co-produces) has put in towards building a buff physique. His Popeye-like, vein-rippled arms seem to have a life of their own.
Apart from his T-shirt-tearing pectorals, Penn’s real-life social causes also influence the film. Eight years prior, Jim was the ‘trigger’ selected to knock off DRC’s Minister of Mining, after which he had to leave the country.
Accordingly, he goes, leaving his girlfriend Annie (Trinca) behind in the care of his oily associate Felix (Bardem, wasted here in more ways than one) without even so much as a proper goodbye. Felix barely manages to conceal his fist-bumping delight as he has a mad crush on Annie. ดูหนังออนไลน์
2. RUN ALL NIGHT MOVIE REVIEW
Review: Mike’s mother passed away a while back and his dad Jimmy sought solace in the bottom of a Scotch bottle. When not rubbing people off for a living. Now a limousine driver with a family of his own. Mike drops off two clients to an apartment and is then witness to a murder committed by Danny.
The latter tries to kill Mike in his house, but Jimmy takes Danny out just in time. When Jimmy telephones Shawn and almost casually informs him that he has killed Danny, there are no temper meltdowns.
Instead, there’s just a mutual resignation towards the inevitable; Jimmy tells Shawn that they are going to approach the point of no return. What we then have is classic Neeson – rumbling voice and lumbering gait – all the way.
3. DRAGON BLADE MOVIE REVIEW
Review : Chan’s Dragon Blade is a pleasant surprise, executed with visible grandeur. Can claim to be an earnestly performed, crisply edited, smart fare. The movie primarily invests in attaining technical finesse to remain close to the widely understood connotation of commercial cinema.
Forgoing the attempt to explore the frictional intricacies of Silk Route. The film’s slim understanding of its setting shows starkly in its tendency to avoid a political comment. But, what works in its favour is the satiating after-feeling which gives you bang for the buck.
Director Daniel Lee waives his curlicue tendencies and constructs a film that is strongly rooted in emotional drama and has the brisk deftness of a thumping action-flick.
It has stellar stunts, choreographed to perfection, bringing in Asian infantry that is two-millennia old along with Western cavalry of the same time, mixing it up with staple Kung-fu moves.
