The problem with Hobbs and Shaw was the lack of substance that made everything seem inconsequential and unworthy of commitment to memory. The plot was unoriginal from start to finish. I dare you to find any element of this movie that has not been done before and done better. The script was corny and no amount of skill from Dwayne Johnson or Jason Statham could save it. Everything seemed forced, and as such, made it truly painful to watch. Hobbs and Shaw was a substandard addition to the franchise but its worst offense if probably ruining the characters of Luke Hobbs and Deckard Shaw for franchise fans. What a waste of time and talent. 

By its end, viewers will wonder what the hell just happened and shake their heads at the waste of potential that the collaboration among these fine actors presented. If you’re looking for an action movie that will challenge your intellect and your adrenalin, this is not the movie for you, but if you simply want to raise your blood pressure for no particular reason, feel free to check it out.  Don’t be fooled by the cool trailer. You’ve been warned.

All in all, bravo to John Wick 3: Parabellum. It was indeed an exciting, heart pounding, well written, and perfectly executed installment to the expanding franchise and I would definitely recommend it to any action afficionado that I know. A lot of hard work went into making this high quality franchise and its shows. Yes, its that good. 

All in all, Polar had extremely strong and extremely boring moments that will make you feel like a yoyo for the entirety of the film. As much as I love Mads and Vanessa, I don’t think I could sit through the entire film again while fully awake. 

All in all, , What Happened to Monday? had a very modern day Soylent Green vibe to it and its villain reminded me of Thanos minus the Infinity Gauntlet. But at the end of the day, its brilliance was hinged on the casting of an effective lead star like Noomi Rapace to serve up the acting and the action in equal heart pounding measure. 

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.

All in all, I would definitely recommend Skyscraper to anyone who would listen to my opinion. Its awesome and entertaining, and I haven’t really felt this way about an action film since “Olympus Has Fallen.” That’s benchmarking for you.

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. By its end, I was confused as to what its real purpose was — to entertain moviegoers or to annoy the hell out of non-die hard fans of Ang Probinsyano like myself. Its definitely leaps and bounds better than the Bong Revilla version though.
