Doom: Annihilation (2019)
Doom: Annihilation is a fun popcorn flick.
This was a fun little action-horror movie,
now I'm fully aware that the lead actress
my have said some hurtful things about
the doom guy, I now that pissed the fan
She's probably an SJW supporter and wanted to
stir up controversy since the movie trailer debuted,
and was met with mostly negative reviews, but we
can't just base this movie on one person mistake,
no matter how stupid it was or is. We have to judge
a movie on it's own merits; Luckily the director made sure
to do reshoots to improve quality issues, like acting and tweaking
scenes to make them more suspenseful or to add more character
moments or more backstory to characters, and it pays off.
So with that out of the way I'm going to get on with the review.
It starts out with the space marines or spacial operatives of some kind, getting a distress call from one of planet Mars moons so they go to investigate and are fooled into a trap as they must battle for their lives because this enemy is one they have never faced...evil hellish demons! As their taken out one by one Sgt. Joan Dark and her team discover that these monsters are planing to unleash hell on earth!
I first seen this a my library, so I was curious but cautious and pleasantly surprised, this movie was fun from start to finish, I think the reshoots helped because the action/melee and character scenes were pretty good, no by no means is this a prefect movie, it has it's flaws but it was enjoyable. The actress that plays Joan Dark gets to use a chainsaw on a couple of the re-animated scientists, this scene was really bloody, blood even spatters all over her sexy face, so i loved it. She also gets to use the BFG which was cool even though the gun looks like a prop/toy but not in a bad way. This movie has a nice tasteful blood level that I really liked,and lots and lots of heavy shootouts, the demons looked good too, I'm glad the used costumes and did the "man in a suit" approach, very old school which was good.
Overall I give it a 5/10. It's just popcorn fun and lots of action and mayhem, if your curious about this definitely see it,and please don't listen to the negativity, see it for yourself, I hope you have a good time because I had a blast!
Wonder Woman (2009)
Wonder Woman is a lot of fun. A good time.
I recently got this through order through the,
library and I loved it. Now I was never a big fan
of the character but I always liked her, I first seen the character in
old re-runs of Super Friends on cartoon Network as well as,
the animated series of the Justice League.
I have always found this character sexy even at a young age but even more so now. The animation for this movie is beautiful I don't know what it is, but they made Diana Prince even more sexy, I mean Jesus I have a huge crush on her!!! As well as the other Amazons!
In the story she has to stop Ares after he escapes form his prison on Themyscira and wreaks destruction and chaos on the world. As well as help from Air Force pilot Steve Trevor who crash lands on the island and has to get back to the world. I mean you get get it? The story pretty straight forward and simple. The action scenes are awesome to the highest order for a direct to video movie, I mean it's non-stop action and fun. There's one stand out scene that I really loved, where she fights a Greek monster in her Wonder Woman costume bare foot and it's kinda hot. I love it! I love it! I love it! LOL.
Over all I give it a 7/10. It's fun and action packed from start to finish. And I have to say Diana is oh so sexy and one hell of a bad ass! Wonder Woman really gets me hot.
A.I. Rising (2018)
it's meh but it's visually stunning and erotic.
Boy, ho boy. This movie has a lot of problems,
if others on here have complained they have the right to.
Where do I begin? Well, let me start with the positives first. From what I can tell the actors were pretty good they gave very committed performances. The visual effects are top notch which says a lot for a b-movie.
As for everything else, well, this will sort of segways into the negatives. I will say this, the sex and nudity was honestly good but there was little to no character development. The script was bad too,way too little happens, Stoya that plays the female android is beautiful and sexy as hell. when I watched the behind the scene interview with Stoya, she mentions she is a porn actress,i was kinda surprised because she was honestly pretty good. the male actor who plays the pilot was good as well but i wish both there characters were written better as well as the film it's self. Most of the movie is on a spaceship and the pilot and the android are the only ones on board, he's basically just being used by the corporation i guess to study his behavior,he's able to do anything he wants with the android, he uses her to full-fill his sexual needs but when he gets bored he switches her programming to "free will" sort of speak.
Overall I give it a 1/10. It's not a really good movie but Stoya was worth watching. I can't highly recommend it but if you curios give it a look.
Terminator: Dark Fate (2019)
'Dark Fate' is a return to form.
First off I'm happy to say that James Cameron,
is back as co-writer and producer to the franchise!
You know, a lot of people thought he'd never do anything
with 'terminator' once he reacquired the rights, but I did,
and I told my mom that there is no way Jim would ever!
It's his baby you know?
Now before I go into the film i'd like to mention that, this franchise is (DAMAGED) from the other filmmakers over the years; For toughs that don't know, Jim had to sell the rights way back when he did T1 in 1984, in order to get a possible sequel made, now this franchise went through many studio hands over the years, then around when he did T2 in 1991, he sold the the rights again. I believe at that time he was either done with the series or he really didn't know where to go next, but Arnold was enthusiastic about making another, Jim felt 'terminator' is very much Arnold's as well, Jim just offered ask for as much money as possible. And the rest is history for the downfall of the franchise.
(Onto the film). Mild spoilers ahead.
In 1998 three years after judgement day which was set in 1995, John Connor and his mother Sarah Connor are relaxing in mexico at a local bar, John goes to the counter to get his mother some drinks when suddenly John is gunned down by a T-800! Sarah cradles John's lifeless corpse and thus starts a new chain of events! 22 years later in mexico a time sphere appears marking the arrival of Grace a resistance fighter from the year 2042! who is human but with cybernetic enhancements. Her mission is to protect a young woman named Dani Ramos. Also a new terminator menace from the future arrives called Rev-9 who is a new form of dark liquid metal and a solid but hollow endoskeleton, both forms can split in two full autonomous units! he is here to kill Dani Ramos. Later Grace and Dani meet up with Sarah Connor and the Terminator who is more human socially that lives in a cabin with a "wife and child" (used as cover). Together the awesome action foursome do battle with the Rev-9!!!
This movie was pretty good i really liked it, now it's never going to be better than the first two films which are classics.This movie did something different and it feels fresh like the the first two, which is good and this film feels like a true sequel, you know, a true T3. Don't listen to all the negativity out there, keep your mind off all that rubbish and see it for yourself.
I give it a 7/10. This one feels like a blood relative to T1 and T2, and this film is directed by Tim Miller, also Jim has said this is very much Tim's movie. But don't let that get you down it's fast, fun and action packed!!! I hope you have a good time because I know I did!!!
Gemini Man (2019)
Very good movie. Hugely underrated.
The following is a positive review.
Will Smith is back as a government assassin, he plays Henry Brogan an aging contract killer who seeks to exit his career after his last hit, which goes well enough. But Henry feels it's time to give it up and to live a quiet life. On the day of his retirement he is tracked down by assassins, and goes on the run, he is relentlessly pursued by one assassin which he makes a shocking discovery that it's a younger clone of himself; who can predict his every move!
This movie was fantastic, Will Smith is great in a dual roll playing both Henry and his clone counterpart Junior. The visual effects are the selling point and they work incredibly well.
Now I know this film is getting a lot of flak but most people are over looking the whole point, it's an emotional journey for both characters Henry and his clone Junior. For his clone, he's learning how to cope with being a 23 year old child soldier, and an emotional struggle learning he's a copy of the man he's trying to kill. For Henry who's 51 years old, is trying to cope with middle age, retirement, and battling the copy of his younger self, that's heavy stuff to think about. Now everybody has the right to their own opinion, but what most do, is just want to complain about it, and not give it a fair chance, which is so aggravating. Pius the ones that do review it just seem to want to compare it to Looper, which is completely stupid! This film has absolutely has nothing to do with time travel, like at all! Plus Looper was a mediocre mass and it sucked! I hate that movie! (Moving on). The supporting cast was good as well, Clive Owen was good as the main villain, even though he doesn't get to do much but he leaves an impression. Mary Elizabeth Windsted is good as a rookie assassin partner to Henry, her part small but she get to kick ass here and there which is fun.
Overall I give it a 8/10. Don't listen to the haters this movie is an underrated gem.
Plus this movie was in development hell for 20 years! with many actors and directors attached at one point, director Tony Scott as for as i remember and for actors Mel Gibson, Clint Eastwood, Sean Connery and Arnold Schwarzenegger just to name a few.The movie was mostly halted because the technology wasn't quiet right. Anyway I hope you enjoy it, it's fun!
The Net 2.0 (2006)
Better than expected. A good sequel.
I quite enjoyed the first staring Sandra Bullock so when i heard,
about this one I was a little skeptical because,you know, direct to video
sequels usually suck. But luckily this was pretty good.
I'm not familiar with the main actress even though i find her strangely familiar and kinda cute, i have not seen her in anything before. But she does a good job, she plays Hope Cassidy who is a computer programmer of sorts (I'm a little fuzzy on the details). I just watched it last night but forgot the story, all i can remember is she gets framed for murder, her identity is stolen and she has to go on the run (in similar fashion as the first). I mean, you get it? the story's a little bit generic but still done well.
I had a lot of fun with it, it's fast paced and decently written by Rob Cowen (director of The Hurricane Heist). My mom fond it at the library, they were giving it away along with other DVDs in their book sale, my mom liked it as well.
I give it a 4/10. A decent little sequel, and a welcome addition to the first, that was very respectful, that was made with care and not a cash grab. Give it a look.
Batman vs. Two-Face (2017)
Adam West's final film role as Batman is great.
Holy sequel! Adam West and Burt Ward return for
Batam vs Two-face.
This film is as good as the first be maybe a bit better, Batman and Robin face there latest foe Two-face from releasing a gas that will turn everyone in Gotham City into two-faces.
Like the first this film shares it's campy tone and like the first it has some mildly dark elements but this maybe more mildly darker since deals with Two-face.
On the film, Dr. Hugo Strange is demonstrating his evil extractor on the supervillains of Gotham extracting there evil ( I can't remember exactly why) and suddenly things go wrong. Batman and Robin are there with District attorney Harvey Dent and Harvey is violently hit by gas and debris although Batman tried to save him Harvey becomes Two-face and vows to destroy The dark knight and the boy wonder.
This movie was a lot of fun to watch William Shatner of a people plays Two-face and his was awesome especially when he does his bad guy voice, he played him very seriously. I give it a 7/10, this film is the best of the two films and I'm especially glad that Adam West did these animated movies before his passing. If you like Adam West's Batman or if like campy humor give it a look.
Adam West returns as Batman.
I recently got this movie on order from my library in December last year,
as part of a double feature with Batman vs Two-face and I liked both.
I remember I use to watch re-runs of Adam west's show as a little kid back in the late 90's on channel FX and I liked it's silly nature, even his TV movie "Batman";I remember back in the 90's a buddy of mine, that went into the Marines, use to have a copy on VHS and I watched it a couple of times when I came over his house.
On to the film, the story for this is about Batman and Robin having to stop Catwoman, The Joker, Riddler and Pangain from taking over the city. However Catwoman wants Batman to be as bad as her(since she has a crush on him) gives him a formula much to his dismay and turns him "evil", soon enough Batman goes "mad" and takes over the city but in a silly way. Realizing it was a stupid idea LOL, Catwoman and Robin team up to stop Batman's silly chaos.
This was a lot of fun to watch, the cool thing is, the key cast sound the same after 50 years which is amazing. I give it a 6/10, if you like Batman and don't mind some silly camp humor or if you like Adam West's Batman give it a look.
Showdown in Little Tokyo (1991)
A fun action movie.
Dolph Lundgren and Brandon Lee are a crime fighting duo!
I have recently seen this a couple of weeks ago, when I ordered it from my library and I loved it. I recently watched it with a buddy, I told him that It my be a bit corny but I really liked it he liked it as well.
The story to this is very simple, two cops team up to stop a Yukza syndicate from shipping crystal meth into Los Angeles. Also Dolph's character seeks revenge against the Yukza boss(Cary Tagowa) because he killed his parents when he was a kid.
This movie was a lot of fun to watch the action scenes are pretty standard at best but still fun to watch. And how cold I forget, this film is funny as hell, the one liners are priceless. Tea Carare is sexy as ever oh my god! Beautiful as hell!
Overall, if your an action fan,I think your going to love this movie, especially if you don't mind a little corny humor because there is plenty, and of course it's loaded with nonstop action! I give it a 7/10. This was a real good time. I recommend it.
Venom is a fun-filled thrill ride. Really not that bad at all.
Listen, critics are over paid morons most of the time,
don't listen to them. This movie was pretty damn good.
Tom Hardy was great and the smartest choice to play Eddie Brock/Venom, now back in 2007 when I first heard about a Venom spin-off I felt very unsure about that, but fast forward to 2018 with Tom Hardy in the lead role I was on board with it.
This was a pretty standard adventure film at best but it was still good, I would say the script was a little weak in places and the film as whole was a little rough around the edges but I still liked it very much.
The build up- is pretty standard stuff we've seen before but it's fine.
The plot- is not the most original but still good.
The CGI- was really good in my opinion, Venom looked fairly real and he was interesting to look at too. besides don't listen to those who say the CGI was bad what do they know.
Overall, a popcorn fun action-adventure with anti-hero Venom, Tom Hardy really caries this film well without him I think it would have failed. Plus this leave you wanting more! which is always good in my book. I recently seen this in theaters and i loved it. I give it a 7/10. I full-heartedly recommend it.
The Predator (2018)
Finally a fresh direction this series needed.
First off I love this film, it took real risks with the story and takes
the Predator mythology on it's ear which I love.
The story starts off with Quinn McKenna (Hal Halbrook) a mercenary that finds some misplaced Predator tech which he steals in the woods. Soon enough he meets a band of mercenaries code-named "the loonies" (which are funny by the way) and a scientist (Olivia Munn) as they are hunted by the Predator and a giant Predator let's call him "Upgrade", because of this Upgrade Predator has spliced his DNA with the deadliest creatures in the universe including human DNA! he's really cool too, it has armor plated skin, bionic eye enhancement, superior strength even to average Predators and Predator dogs! Now I know some people have taken issue with this but i don't care, i personally liked that this took some risks unlike 2010's Predators, this franchise needed it, and it's not like this came out of thin air, Shane Black and Fred Dekker who wrote this got the Upgraded Predator from the Predator comics books. There is a similar story with and Upgraded Predator that takes DNA from other creatures and injects it's self making it stronger.
Overall, I had a damn good time with this, and I can't wait to get this on DVD. I give this a 7/10. I do know the story isn't the strongest are the best but i liked it way better then Predators, also this had a lot of re-shoots done to it, so that is why there are plot holes. But this is so face paced most won't notice, also don't take this one too seriously because it's suppose to be funnier than the previous installments. Highly recommended.
Weakest in the series. Not as good as the first two but great in concept.
This film has a nice concept for a third go around in
Now in my opinion this is the weakest in
the series, for two reasons; first, this is just a repeat of
the first film, just on another planet and second; it doesn't
add much character development or really expand any futher
on the universe or takes any risks of any kind.
The story starts off in free fall, we meet Royce (Adrian Brody) a mercenary falling unconscious but suddenly wakes up and actives a button on his harness to release his parachute he lands roughly but safely as he falls through the tress and hits the ground. We meet other characters who are military or ruthless killers from different parts of the world. It doesn't take long for them to realize that they are not on earth and that they are the prey! They go up against three highly aggressive Predators that have on code of honor and do not kill for sport, they kill for pure fun!
To be honest this could have been better and I wanted more from the characters and story, but it's just a meat and potatoes type of story. I felt the characters were very shallow which made me not care for them as much, even though the actors are good their characters are shallow. Laurence Fishburne is probably the stand out, he plays Nolan a scavenger who sort of "helps" the band of killers to shelter and tells them who and what their up against. Although his part is sort of wasted his not in the film for very long, he's in and out, their lots of missed opportunities in this, which is sad.
Overall, I still liked it, and i think it's still a decent edition to the series. I give it a 5/10. Not as good as the fist two but still watchable.
Predator 2 (1990)
Predator 2 is a damn good time. Very Underrated sequel.
This film has a weird history: some love it, some hated it but
in all seriousness this IS a good sequel, especially with expanding the
Predator universe (AVP and AVP-R) and the various video games/comics.
The sequel is set around ten years after the first film (I'm assuming it's set sometime in the near future because theirs futuristic highlights throughout the city. I'm including the original Predator as well). Set in Los Angeles during a summer heat wave we meet Det. Harrigan (Danny Glover from Lethal Weapon) in the heat of a shoot out and his team are battling a gang war against Colombians and the Jamaicans. And in similar fashion Harrigan's team mates are killed off one by one including gang members by another Predator, however Harrigan has an edge, he knows what he's up against because finds clues that the Predator leaves behind, leading him to learn the skinned bodies and odd tech is from a creature not of this earth. With the not so help from a government group led by Agent Keys(Gary Busey) Harrigan has the added advantage of battling the Predator, disrupting it's invisibility tech and finally avenging the deaths of his team!
I love Predator 2 very underrated, it's as good as the first. Now most people will argue that Arnold was not in it but Danny Glover is another icon of the 80's and he carries the film with ease. The real reason Arnold was not in this is because he committed to do (Total Recall and Terminator 2: Judgement Day) so there you go.
Overall, a fun and enjoyable sequel to the first. I give it an 8/10. Please if you want to see this definitely see it, it's as good as the first, i mean it's different but that is exactly why I like it. Highly recommend.
Predator is a damn good movie.
This film is a lot of fun to watch, Arnold is at his best.
The story is very simple, a group of commandos,
lead by Dutch (Arnold),must extract some hostages from
hostel guerrilla forces in some Amazon jungle (can't remember
the exact location).
The mission was going quiet well...until they run into the extremely dangerous, extraterrestrial aka the Predator! Soon the Predator kills off Dutch's team one by one until only he and the Predator remain, and face off against each other... that only one can survive!
The youngest I can remember seeing this was age 4 I think on HBO, I loved it then and now. Back in 2009 my mom found it at a goodwill along with it's sequel Predator 2 both on VHS, then in 2012 I got Predator 2 on DVD, and the original Predator I recently got on DVD in 2018.
The supporting cast is great as well, Jesse Ventura, Bill Duke and Carl Weathers I don't remember the other two Latino actors but the were good as well.
Overall, an awesome film with an original story and concept. I give it an 8/10. Highly recommended.
Sei mong tap (1981)
As good as the first. A guilty pleasure sequel.
Well, this was convenient, a sequel to the original; that I at least,
heard is not related. But I would say for the sake of argument
it's a stand alone follow-up.
I recently watched this a couple of days ago, because I had ordered it from my library, and at best, found it enjoyably bad. And comparing it to the first, it's just as good, having said that, let's get to it.
This story is about a secret syndicate organization called "Tower of Death", since the story starts off with Bruce Lee, I'll start here, Bruce Lee makes an extended cameo appearance as Billy Lo, at the start of the story where he is asked to attend a funeral of a respected martial arts master, and then,(killed of, yet again)! But this time for "real,"(kinda silly I know) at least in the movie, So his brother Bobby Lo must go to the tower of death, take revenge and find out the truth.
I would say this was at least as good as the first, maybe not in story, but more so for the action scenes which are done very well. But as far as the story, it makes no sense at all, truthfully I would say the story is incoherent manly because the filmmakers I think wanted this one to be just a fun no-brainer type of film.
For the beginning, the same techniques were used for Bruce Lee, using stand-ins and archive footage but this time the effects used are much better and they don't stand out badly like the first, which is good.
This film as a whole was bad but enjoyably bad, Bobby Lo also fights a lion at one point, even though it's a man in a suit LOL. I mean this movie is bonkers, then at the end the movie completely shifts into science fiction territory, but trust me it was cool. I found myself just loving this, even though this movie is so cheesy and the acting is bad, but It strangely all comes together and it's brilliant.
I give this a 4/10. To me the first is still better, as for the sequel it's as good but better with the action and truthfully, I like both.
If you don't mind a corny martial arts movie like this, see it. But you must to have a sense of humor about it or you won't enjoy it. Highly recommended.
Game of Death (1978)
Bruce Lee's last film is a fun guilty pleasure.
I will be honest, I have never seen a Bruce Lee film until 2017,
with "Enter the Dragon" and I enjoyed that film.
As for this one being his last, before his untimely death I have to say it's fun.
It falls into the category of being so bad it's good.
Hard-core fans don't take it too seriously, and if your like me, you shouldn't. There wasn't much footage to use from the archives, because of what was completed, all of it is in the pagoda; I don't know much about it, I'm not sure if there was even a script, I'm just aware that their are just script notes found. I felt the way director Robert Clouse (Enter The Dragon) did the film was still pretty good; because from what I have heard, he didn't like or at least, care that much for what had been shot five years before. Because according to the director, many movies already copied the same idea, before the film's release! So it's understandable that he wanted to do something different.
For what's it's worth I really liked it, it's fun. Even though it's bad, but that's why I like it, because it's bad, and over the top. The main baddie Dr. Lang is differently over the top funny, his laugh is hilarious! I give it a 6/10. Bruce Lee's last film is just pure escapist fun. Give it a look.
Double Dragon (1994)
Silly, fun and watchable.
I don't know much about the the video game,
hell I've never even played it but this movie was fun to watch.
I recently got this on order through the library and I love it, now I would say this film is a little corny and it doesn't take it's self too seriously and you shouldn't either just have fun with it. I remember seeing this when I was very little a lest 5 years old, when it came to TV in the 90's I'm fuzzy on it but I do remember liking it even then. Then in 2007 I seen it again when we use to have high cable, I seen it in a small category of movies along side Judgement Night (also a good one) I remember saying "Double Dragon?" "Oh, yeah! I remember that movie!" "It's been a long time since I've seen that!" So you can imagine I got a little excited to see it. When I viewed it I thought this fun a little corny but fun.
Fast forward to 2018, and I still like this movie (now onto the film). In the future, the year is 2007 and Los Angeles is a dystopia with a toxic water supply and the city is burnt out (Oh my god It already happened LOL). Mark Decoscos and Scott Wolff play the Lee brothers who are fairly good martial arts fighters but at the same-time goof balls as they are linked to a mysterious talisman which is in two haves (why is it always two haves?) one is power over the mind, the other is power over the body and spirit (as I understand it). Robert Patrick is the main baddie as I understand it he is a shadow spirit person who wants the talisman for world domination. The Lee brothers have to team up to stop him and save the word. And how can I forget the sexy Alyssa Malano, she has a fun part in this as well, she has a cyber punk look to her, sorting a blonde pixie cut which is cool and she looks great in boody shorts they fit nicely on perfectly formed ass.
As I said before a little corny but really fun and if your OK with that I think you'll enjoy it. I give it a 7/10. Definitely recommended and have fun.
The Matrix Reloaded (2003)
The awesome sequel to the original.
Well I have to start buy saying that this is an honestly good movie,
but with all sequels it has it's flaws as well. (There easy to overlook).
I think that this takes place at least six months after the first, and we get to see Zion an underground sanctuary where the human race hides, we also learn that the machines are digging their way to them. Neo flies, a prophecy is talked about and there is a ticking clock to all-out war with the machines. (Let me get into the flaws first).
First I would like to say that this is a fun movie, great action scenes great visual effects. But the movie manly lacks in I would say character development, maybe a bit of the story is a little muttled, and a little confusing and convoluted. I can't place my finger on it but it's there, to put it simply they should have done something else for the story. Even before I seen this I was kinda expecting something different, you know, new villains, new threat just something cool but different. Not that what is in it isn't and not that I was let down or anything when I watched it but I'm saying that it was missed opportunities for something really special. (On to the good stuff).
The action scenes are awesome and quite memorable, my favorites are when Trinity is on the freeway in a high speed chase, Morpheus fighting an agent on a semi-truck's trailer all the bad ass fights with Neo. There is a scene where Neo kisses Monica Bellucci that is quiet erotic also Neo and Trinity have a sex scene in this, I can tell the directors wanted to have some sex in this film LOL. A side from that this was an enjoyable film to watch all though I do watch this film a lot less these days, I do find myself going back to the first more often. But this one is still good and ends on a cliffhanger leaving you wanting more.
Overall I give it a 7/10. Fun to watch every once and a while.
A funny well made action movie.
I first seen this back in I think 1998 on TV when I was 8,
I remember liking it even then, then around 2001 seen it again on TV.
Fast forward to 2018 and I still like this film, it's just as good as I remember it because sometimes seeing films in your childhood and then in adulthood differs.
I just rented it recently from my library and I still love it. On to the film, Mark Dacascos plays Toby Wong, from what I understand he could possibly be a soldier that more or less volunteered for the program to have a turbo drive device implanted in his chest that gives him superhuman strength, speed and agility. But for him, he is just a prototype, for we later learn there are others just like him in cold storage. Obviously this is the work of a sinister corporation,( but the version I have does not explain any further on that). Kadeem Hardison plays Malik Brody a down on his luck singer who meets Toby in a bar, as the bad guys track him, Malik and Toby flee the scene and Malik must "Drive" him around town to stay one step ahead.
This movie was a lot of fun, it's just non-stop action and laughs from start to finish, and the late Brittany Murphy plays a small roll too, mostly her is part is a comedic side kick for relief.
Overall fun, action packed and re-watchable. I give it a 7/10. I recommend it.
Rampage is a blast!
The first time I had heard of the game was back in 2009.
A buddy of mine had it on his Game Cube as a down-loadable game,
he and another friend was over, and we all played it, and we had fun.
Coincidentally he had said "you know, this could make a good movie".
I replied "yeah it would, but only if it's done right".
Fast forward to 2018, and we now have a real live action movie. I'll be honest I don't know much about the game, because I have only played it once, I did read a little bit about it, but I still don't know very much, not that the game series have much story to begin with. But I feel this film did a good job on turning it into a film.
On to the film, this movie was great, it's a little corny but I like that it wasn't taking it's self too seriously, but serious enough to stay engaged with it and it's characters. Dwayne Johnson is great as Davis Okaye who is an animal tamer (with a special forces background) that takes care of George an albino silver-back gorilla. Meanwhile in space, when a mutagen experiment goes wrong in a space station, the capsules containing the mutagen re-enter earth's atmosphere and land conveniently by a pack of wild wolves (in this case by one wolf) code-named "Ralph" by the military and the other capsule lands by a swamp-marsh like area by a crocodile code-named "Lizzie" (and yes, it is female). The last one lands by George and makes all three animals grow into giants, obviously this is the work of a sinister corporation, as the powers that be comets project "Rampage" hens movies title. And what a rampage it is, all three animals became aggressive and wreak magnificent havoc to anything in their path. But it's up to Davis Okaye and a former scientist (played by Naomi Harris) that use to work for the corporation to find a way to get George to help, and stop the other monsters from destroying the city and possibly the world.
Comparison from game to film, honestly I liked it a lot better that it was animals that get mutated, instead like in the game you play a person who gets tricked into in experiment and become a creature. It seems if the film did it that way, it would be way more complicated and seems too convoluted when you think about it. But I felt the way the film did it was way smarter that some give it credit for, I liked that the writer(s) simplified it enough to get you into the movie a lot faster.
My thoughts, I absolutely loved this movie great fun I recommend to all. By far the best video game movie I have ever seen to date.
Overall a great adventure from start to finish. I give it a 7/10. Escapist fun at it's finest. Highly recommended.
Killing Gunther (2017)
For me, this was alright. Arnold made it better.
Arnold is Gunther the unstoppable hit-man in
I'll be honest here, this is not a great film it is very flawed. But Arnold is clearly the best thing out of it.
The story, a group of assassins try multiple times to try and kill Gunther (for some reason they have to kill him I guess to be considered the best in the business, however this is a weak idea because there is really no story reason), and failing hilariously at it.
I did kinda dose off a bit on it just for a minute not because it was boring but I was tired, however I do think the beginning of the film is I bit slow but around an hour Arnold shows up and the movie starts to get much better and funnier too. In the future I think I will see this again, some my not like this film but I think you have to go into it not expecting it to be great, like, keep your expectations low about it and I think you can enjoy it for what it is.
Overall an OK film that is not the greatest but when Arnold shows up the movie gets better. I give it a 3/10. Remember keep your expectations low and I think it will be OK to watch.
Chuck delivers a decent sequel.
This was a pretty good sequel to the first
in some ways it's better it delivered more action.
Like the first I don't remember much because I have not seen it very often so I'm fuzzy on details so please bare with me. The story from what I remember was I think it involved the DEA trying to track down Cota, a ruthless drug cartel boss from Colombia who kills some DEA agents so Delta Force is called in to help then Chuck's partner's family is murdered by Cota, then his partner and him capture Cota, his is put on trail, he gets off, bribed judge then returns to Colombia and Chuck and his partner go after him. (Hope that was helpful)?
The action scenes are awesome, Chuck fights bad guys left and right in this, especially at Cota's mansion which is the best but I don't want to spoil it.
Overall a decent sequel to the first that offered some different and it delivered, which is very rare. I give it a 5/10. It's fun. Very watchable and I recommend it.
The Delta Force (1986)
Chuck Norris delivers action and fun.
I had first seen this back in 2011 when I ordered it through
the library and I really liked it.
Then in 2015 my mom found it on VHS at a flea market
along with two other Chuck Norris movies "Delta Force 2"
and " Bardock: Missing in Action 3".
I'm a bit of a Chuck Norris fan, I used to watch his TV show "Walker Texas Ranger" back when it was on TV which I'm a fan of.
This movie is a lot of fun because you get to see old Chuck kick some terrorist ass with his squad, I'm a bit fussy on the details because I haven't watched it often, so please bare with me as I try to tell you the story.
If I remember correctly the terrorists hijack a 747 with Robert Forester as the terrorist leader (you know for the longest time I did not realize that he was even in this, it took me two years to find out! LOL). The hijackers demand payment or they will kill a hostage every hour, and so The Delta Force are call in to help stop the terrorists and rescue the hostages (hope that was helpful)?
On to the action scenes, the action is very good and well paced since this runs at 2 hrs. 5 min. it's done well because it could have been slow and boring but thank goodness it moves at a brisk pace. And it also has some pretty good tension in some scenes.
Overall a really good movie from start to finish with funny one liners and cool action scenes.
I give it a 5/10. Watch it with friends. It's a good time for sure.
Weak finish to the series.
Where do I begin, well we finally made it to the end of the series.
It's underwhelming at best,but it is the end, and I'm glad it finally
Milla jovovich is back with Ali Larter, the only other actor from
the previous films to return for the last film surprisingly.
The story, Alice has 48 hrs.to find the anti-virus and save the world before it's too late to save humanity (Something like that).
This film is just OK, but what makes it lack is both the cinematography and story. First off, there is too much shaky cam, now hand held is OK but this has a lot of shaky cam which is distracting. But luckily it's mostly shaky at the beginning and less shaky (still shaky but less around 30 minutes) so you can actually see what is going on, which is good.
Now on to the story, the story is just plain lazy from what I remember the film completely ignores Extinction by disregarding the plot device that her blood is the cure to stop the T-virus, but in this film the antivirus is use to stop the T-virus? Why? This makes no sense at all, and why set up that Alice's blood is the cure, if Paul Anderson the director/writer was going to use that plot device why wouldn't he just pay it off in this film? I don't understand why this was so hard for him to write that in this one, but this series is full of inconsistency's like that, simply lazy writing that's why.
On to the good news,Milla Jovovich has never looked better she looks great in her black sports pants and tank top and for the first time she has boobs and I would say an A-cup and she has nice cleavage but she went into this one after she gave birth to her second child and her first child plays The Red Queen, who for some reason is now good? Ali Larter doesn't get to do very much but I'm glad at least she was in it.
Overall a so-so finish to the series, but it cold have been better, manly in writing, but if I were you I would go into this with caution because many have expressed dissatisfaction with it including my one of my buddies.
I give it a 3/10. I still like it, but it does lack and I'm at least glad it's finally finished.
Resident Evil: Retribution (2012)
No plot, No story but lots of action. Simply a mindless action movie.
Let me put this simply as I can, this is a mindless action movie.
I think Paul W.S. Anderson the director and writer was starting to
run out of ideas and it shows, but I personally liked it because
we had some of the same characters we already knew and I think
it sort of works manly for the action.
The action scenes were great, the film makes no sense at all mind you, but mostly works because it's action scenes. Put simply, it's inconsistent in story for whatever reasons, I think some people that are fans of these films said there was more story from what I remember, but it was scrapped because "Sony" the studio I guess didn't like it, and they wanted it as a mindless action movie? I think?
Anyway, Milla is good as always for this series and I like her sexy costume that fits well on her sexy shape and makes her look like an S&M dominatrix which is awesome. Also it's just fun seeing her kick zombie ass in slow motion, from what I remember she is in some kind of facility of Umbrella's and she has to get out for whatever reasons, that's basically the plot.
Most may not like it but I did, for me, I'm an action fan and a fan of this series, it really hit the spot, this one delivers action unlike the others.
I give it a 6/10. Not great in story but satisfying in action. If your a fan of these films give it a look. It's the last decent one.
