Review: Taken 3 (5th Anniversary)

Review: Taken 3 (5th Anniversary)

It’s always a terrifying sight to behold when a mediocre movie receives a sequel. Taken 2 looks like the Citizen Kane of action movies compared to the third instalment with the now visibly tired Liam Neeson. The guy can’t catch a break, and this time he’s been framed for the murder of his wife. On the run and with […]

Review: Sicario: Day of the Soldado

Review: Sicario: Day of the Soldado

The ongoing trend of modern action movies is to focus more on the drama than the violent acts of blowing up baddies and swinging in on one-liners. This shift in focus has been somewhat of a blessing and a curse, producing ample films like Sicario: Day of the Soldado; which, for better or worse, manages to […]

Review: John Wick (Five Year Anniversary)

Review: John Wick (Five Year Anniversary)

I’ve got no idea why it took me five years to properly sit down and watch this film. I’ve seen it once prior to this, but only in passing and I wasn’t paying too much attention. I now understand exactly why this is referred to as a modern action classic and some form of career […]

I’m not saying that’s a problem, as far as I’m aware his only good work comes from the aforementioned Argo and Good […]

London Has Fallen is the sequel of Olympus Has Fallen with majority of the cast starring in both movies, with a slight difference – the director for London Has Fallen is Babak Najafi, rather […]

Review: John Wick

Review: John Wick

Action thriller John Wick sees its titular character (played by Keanu Reeves) hunting down members of the Russian mafia after they break into his home, steal his prized car and kill his dog. It’s very much a summer movie, light on story but with a lot of high-octane action. And despite a few problems, it […]
