19 10% Olympus Has Fallen (2013) - Jun 28, 2013
"Straight up this was pretty shit. It was like watching all the worst bit of an 80's action movie without any hint of irony or self-awareness. While it has a few not terrible fight scenes, most action consists of hip-firing while running into open fields. I think at this point it's safe to say that Fuqua's Training Day was almost a fluke."
69 50% Haywire (2012) - Jun 07, 2013
"Decent enough action thriller with something rather unusual: a female action lead that actually looks tough. Gina Carano, an MMA fighter, stars in this spy-thriller, that has moments of impressively choreographed action (not the NON-STOP ACTION THRILL RIDE it's billed as). The plot isn't insultingly stupid, a welcome change from your average low-budget action flick, and this packs an impressive supporting cast. All in all, a solid low-budget alternative action flick."
62 41% Jack Reacher (2012) - Jun 07, 2013
"Eh this is pretty generic and not all that great. Jack Reacher, played by Tom Cruise, is just the best at everything at all times, in a movie produced by Tom Cruise, colour me shocked. This really isn't anything spe-OH MAN WERNER HERZOG. Alright, movie, you win this round."
70 52% The Raid: Redemption (2012) - Apr 05, 2013
"The action scenes are quite impression but the plot here is just tissue paper thin. I know, I know, it's an action film but while the action is great I can't really find myself wanting to watch it ever again."
83 79% Dredd (2012) - Apr 05, 2013
"This film is an absolutely riot. Picture The Raid: Redemption except with Judge Dredd and you know what's in store. Karl Urban manages to out-act Stallone's Dredd without even letting you see his eyes. Watching him scowl through the entire film is just fantastic. The action scenes are very well shot and the film looks utterly gorgeous (well, as good as dystopia can) and the soundtrack is absolutely superb. If you can stomach the violence this is a must see."
50 30% Mandrake (2010) - Apr 05, 2013
"Pretty low budget DTV horror flick. Should be terrible right? Surprisingly it's not all that bad. Max Martini manages to make the most of what could've been an outright terrible film. Even Benito Martinez, of The Shield fame, makes his generic villain character bad enough (in a good way) you want him to die horribly. Not a bad effort considering what these kinds of films usually end up as."
85 83% Zero Dark Thirty (2012) - Apr 05, 2013
"Not tremendously fast-paced but it's nice to watch an espionage film that takes a "slow burn" route for a change. I can't speak to how realistic this was in terms of what actually happened but I can say it was certainly a worthwhile film to catch and, thankfully, it never reaches Hurt Locker levels of questionable believability."
61 39% Ted (2012) - Apr 05, 2013
"Some genuinely hilarious moments but much like the Family Guy movie (and you can be assured this is the exact same type of humour) it can't keep up the laughs for the full running time. Shame because Wahlberg has a ton of comedic talent and manages to make this at least watchable."
64 44% Premium Rush (2012) - Apr 05, 2013
"Not bad, not great. A slightly better than average action film with an admittedly kind of smarmy protagonist. Michael Shannon, however, is a bit of a treasure in this."
91 93% Django Unchained (2012) - Apr 05, 2013
"Certainly a very difficult film to review as it meshes together spaghetti westerns and exploitation films with tremendously over-the-top violence and brutally realistic portrayals of slavery. That said it also manages to have the trademark black humour Tarantino is famous for. If you're a fan of his work this will not disappoint and is certainly one of his best."
