  • Before the Devil Knows You're Dead

    Before the Devil Knows You're Dead 2007

    ★★½ Watched 24 Apr, 2015

    A common problem I often find myself to notice is when the premise of a film exceeds the ambitions of the feature itself. I find 'Before the Devil Knows You're Dead' to be a such a title.

    The main premise of the film is actually pretty well thought out and is supported by some great performances by the main cast, but in my opinion it seems that for what the film does right, it also makes some mistakes along the…

    Avengers: Age of Ultron 2015

    ★★★★★ Watched 22 Apr, 2015

  • Looper

    Looper 2012

    ★★★★★ Watched 29 Nov, 2012

  • Run All Night

    Run All Night 2015

    ★★★ Watched 17 Apr, 2015

    Run All Night manages to return to a recognisable level of enjoyable action that we've come to know from Neeson with films such as Non-Stop and the first Taken. Trading off his ex-intelligence persona for a more down to earth kind of killer Run All Night creates a reasonably exciting action feature that adds both new and old dynamics to its arsenal.

    I wouldn't call Run All Night an exceptional film, but it manages to do what it sets out to do; entertain its audience with a solid story and some well shot/choreographed action.
