Baywatch Movie Review
Getting the mixture of a cringe comedy just right is not an easy task as one person’s comic meal is another’s awful offal but Baywatch more than tickles the funny bone. It plays out just like bad American television, thin plot, thinner actors and The Rock. Mr Johnson gives good comedy and he and the cast look like they were having a right good time with the material.
Fans of bad cinema are out there and when you base a bad film comedy on a bad American ...
The Fate of the Furious Movie Review
The Fate of the Furious is the first complete edition of the series after the tragic death of core cast member Paul Walker and his loss in firmly felt. His character is only given one line of reference dialogue and this outing features the weakest character development in a long time.
To compensate for this lack of story, the action is ramped up to unheralded levels of crazy. It also shows some signs of complacency as some of the special effects are quite dodgy ...

Central Intelligence Movie Review
They get to ply their trade delivering a script that doesn’t have a mean bone in its body. It’s quite refreshing to experience a comedy that doesn’t resort to the usual snide and put down ethos that seem to dominate the current crop of movie comedies.
The set up is certainly silly. Overweight high school geek returns as super buff superman CIA agent (who loves the film Sixteen Candles) and reunites with the only fellow student that treated him with any decency. Together they ...
San Andreas Movie Review
Why are there never any people that spill out of the buildings that get completely destroyed? They were warned this time by Paul Giamatti to get the hell out of Dodge.
Why is it always the daughter that steps up to be the hero and not the son? Boys don’t look as good in wet t-shirts.
Why is it almost always California that gets destroyed in disaster films? It’s halfway there already.
What would it be like to hang ten on a giant tsunami? Good in a small emergency craft, not so ...
Furious 7 – Another Movie Review
Throughout the franchise each film has presented an automotive variant of an established genre. In order these have been: Point Break, buddy cop movie, crap movie, drug runner movie, heist movie, action blockbuster and with this last instalment, Mission Impossible. Furious7 is a long way from The Fast and the Furious, to be sure, but the transition has largely been successful due to the not inconsiderable charisma of Vin Diesel, the appeal of muscle cars and fast four pocket rockets, and ...
Fast & Furious 7 Movie Review
Actor Paul Walker’s passing back in the 2013 was a very sad moment and happened midway through the filming of F&F 7. It caused a number of delays while they rewrote the script. Walker was a very well established journeyman actor and was well liked by all who knew him. This plays out sombrely in the latest film as the series has always focused on a group dynamic and championed the virtues of being part of an extended family.
The filmmakers have done a good job of staying true to ...
Fast Five Movie Review
For although the F&F films are well known for their dubious (albeit spectacularly exciting) car play, the opening scene in this episode stretches implausibility to a level which is hard to swallow even for these movies. It pays to only follow this film in the broadest of strokes as the details rarely add up.
The tagline from the previous film – ‘new model, original parts’ - is even truer this time around as Fast Five nicely consolidates all the entries to date by drawing ...
Fast & Furious 6 Movie Review
The Fast and the Furious (2001) was practically a carbon copy of Kathryn Bigelow's Point Break and Fast & Furious (2009) had elements very reminiscent of Bill Duke's Deep Cover. Finally Furious 6 presents an original script that doesn't completely suck like its predecessors: 2 Fast 2 Furious, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift and Fast Five.
The film begins with a nice round up of all the films so far over its opening credits, foregoing the big opening action sequence of its ...
