Peppermint: Movie Review

All in all, Peppermint was indeed a simple story that lacked complicated subplots. However, the film’s main strength was its badass central character who carried the entire film with uncompromising efficiency. Simple plot + badass execution, after all makes for a strong action flick that goes perfectly well with popcorn and soda. And I for one, loved it.

Ang Panday (2017): Movie Review

All in all, Ang Panday wasn’t horrible but gahd, the endless parade of unnecessary scenes to accommodate the number of actors in this movie was ridiculous.

Its definitely leaps and bounds better than the Bong Revilla version though. … Read More Ang Panday (2017): Movie Review

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
