Riders of Justice Review

As someone who’s turned a Mads Mikkelsen obsession into a personality trait I am contractually obliged to wax lyrical about everything he does. But I don’t think it’s bias talking when I say that Riders of Justice, from Anders Thomas Jensen, is a wholly successful absurdist action comedy for (almost) the entire family. Its ultraviolence fits nicely in the John Wick/Nobody era of frustrated male wi...

The Ice Road Review

Liam Neeson is on thin ice as he attempts to rescue miners trapped in a diamond mine in Canada’s Northwest Territories after a curiously preventable explosion causes the mine to collapse. He and his small entourage have just 30 hours before the oxygen supply is depleted to deliver a wellhead and enable the miners’ escape. The passage is precarious though – they must traverse The Ice Road (a ...

Free Guy Review

Ryan Reynolds is a slave to the game in Free Guy, the new film by director Shawn Levy and from Disney subsidiary 20th Century Studios (née Fox.) He plays a humble bank teller and non-playable character in video game Free City trying to earn free will, become the hero and save the game from shutdown after it is revealed that the game’s quirky and arrogant creator Antoine (Taika Waititi) plans on sc...

The Suicide Squad Review

After stumbling out of the block in 2016, the deeply unsatisfying identity crisis victim Suicide Squad left plenty to be desired. Had it not been for the impressive box office receipts, we may not have seen the continued adventures of a group of violent criminals forced to team up to save the world (well, at least for another 5 to 10 years when the dust had settled and DC felt comfortable re-booti...

Black Widow Review

It’s been over 10 years since Natasha Romanoff first appeared kicking Tony Stark’s butt in the boxing ring in Iron Man 2 (2010). They’ve had a decade to craft her story, so how does it stand up in the franchise? With little more than passing comments hinting at her dark past in previous Marvel flicks, BLACK WIDOW is one of the stand alone Avenger flicks I was most excited to see....

Fast & Furious 9 Review

Cipher enlists the help of Jakob, Dom’s younger brother to take revenge on Dom and his team.

Army of the Dead Review

After a zombie outbreak in Las Vegas, the city is walled off and abandoned to the undead. While the displaced citizens hunker in rundown refugee camps outside the perimeter wall, a veritable army of the dead throngs the Strip. Not to worry, though: a quick tactical nuke will soon be taking care of the problem. That is rather inconvenient for billionaire Bly Tanaka (Hiroyuki Sanada), as he has $200...

Mortal Kombat Review

MORTAL KOMBAT begins in 17th Century Japan, when a team of assassins led by Bi-Han (Joe Taslim), attack the village of warrior Hanzo Hasashi (Hiroyuki Sanada) and members of his ninja clan. Hanzo is killed by Bi-Han and then Hanzo’s spirit is taken to the Netherrealm, a place which is sometimes known as Hell. In the present day, our world, Earthrealm, is in grave danger of being invaded by a...

Guns Akimbo Review

GUNS AKIMBO launches into the action from its very first frame. Our narrator is Miles (Daniel Radcliffe) a put-upon video game developer who hates his job; he is under the thumb working on a money-spinning hypercasual game that he has no respect for. His boss bullies him. His long-term girlfriend Nova (Natasha Liu Bordizzo) has left him (probably). When he’s home alone in his flat, he gets hammere...

Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw Review

Fast and the Furious is on screens once again with the ninth film in this franchise which began all the way back in 2001. This latest film is the first offshoot installment from the main franchise, with David Leitch directing, and series regular screenwriter Chris Morgan returning. Leitch is coming off previous successes Atomic Blonde, and Deadpool 2 with this film that reunites F&F supporting...
