Midnight Runners: Movie Review

All in all, Midnight Runners involved a lot of running, brawling, mystery and ethical questions. It will definitely take the audience on a roller coaster ride for its over an hour run. With characters that are rootable and relatable, you can’t help but feel invested in the outcome of their accidental mission. It was well paced and it had a lot of heart. And while its ending was generic, you can’t help but be happy to have at least seen this movie. It was fun. … Read More Midnight Runners: Movie Review

The Foreigner: Movie Review

The Foreigner was, all in all, an interesting action thriller. However, I felt that it was slightly imbalanced because the focus was tipped too much in favor of Pierce Brosnan. Perhaps it was a conscious decision of director Martin Campbell, who wanted to play it safe, given its Jackie’s first foray into this type of action, but the film didn’t really tell the story of The Foreigner and relegated him to a secondary character with the way things unfolded. The action part on the other hand, was heavily inclined towards Jackie’s character leaving nothing for Pierce who once kicked ass as the legendary Remington Steel and James Bond. This, I believe was a great disservice to the actors and the audience. … Read More The Foreigner: Movie Review

Mayhem: Movie Review

All in all, Mayhem was literally all over the place, and rightly so. It was an action thriller /horror comedy that used all the elements of the genre to perfection (loved the scoring as well) — an entertaining script by Matias Caruso, rootable characters, great cinematography (the framing for the shots was always on point) and everything worked perfectly well together to deliver a gore filled bloodfest that made no apologies for its campiness or its brutality. Which is just perfect in my book. … Read More Mayhem: Movie Review

Justice League: Movie Review

I must admit that I was expecting something different from the trailer but at the end of the day, I felt that it was a good (if not great) first outing for the Justice League. There were conflicts among the characters with strong personalities clashing, as much as there were hits and misses throughout the film. But for a movie that endured as much as it did within the production and development schedule, to come up with a solid addition to the franchise was enough of an achievement.… Read More Justice League: Movie Review

Power Rangers (2017) : Movie Review

All in all, sorry to say but Power Rangers 2017 was a veritable cheesefest. It wasn’t a bad movie per se but it seemed like it squandered the opportunity to reinvent itself and expand on the gains of their strong fanbase. Unfortunately, the only gain it managed was to deliver a film that tried so hard but was obviously a slow-paced so-so run off the mill superhero movie. For a film whose slogan is “Its Morphin Time”, this one took its sweet time to deliver on the morphing part. Not cool. … Read More Power Rangers (2017) : Movie Review
