Really Great 17 Points 2015

This extremely well written and intense movie highlights the tension in pre-Bloody Sunday 1971 Northern Ireland by plopping an abandoned young and scared British soldier in the streets of Belfast. The Hatred of the townies for anything British was thick as a den of thieves and danger was around…

12 Strong
Great 83 Points 2018

12 Strong is no run-of-the-mill war movie, to be valued on its moral complexity and clever comebacks. No, 12 Strong is morally simple and often wooden, making it rather unfashionable in our morally confused era. Of course, we also live in the Islamist Era, sharing God’s Earth with a medieval …

13 Assassins
Perfect 95 Points 2011

A perfect samurai movie, complete with the gathering of a hit-squad, an assassination-worthy villain, operatic action sequences, frequent comic relief, beautifully bucolic staging, buckets of blood and yet not a lot of gore. Action fans in general and samurai fans in particular will be tickled, …

Great 83 Points 2016

The 2012 Islamist militia attack on the two U.S. outposts in Benghazi Libya comes alive as a colossal and utterly predictable central-government failure in 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi. Truth!

The amazing thing is that only four men died, even if one was Ambassador Chris Stevens…

It’s a movie for people who want to see hot cars driven at crazy speeds accompanied by a great hip hop soundtrack, not for those who want a stellar script.

2 Guns
OK 69 Points 2013

A merely OK movie can still be enjoyable if it’s got something outstanding about it. Primo buddies do the trick in 2 Guns. The rest of the cast and film? Less than stellar and just OK. Plus the title doesn’t help.

2 Guns is too blunt – so 2 speak.

I wanted to bump up my final summa…

Good 23 Points 2009

The Disaster film formula strikes again in 2012. If you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all, but what the heck; let’s give Cusack his moments of glory as he saves the day. It’ll be fun.

22 Jump Street
Really Great 83 Points 2014

“Sequels Suck” doesn’t seem operative given how terrific 22 Jump Street is. This one literally jumps off from where its great origin movie ended. Ignore it? Hell, no. #22JumpSt cheekily imagines itself the next episode of the Jump Street serie…
