    ★★★½

    A violent and funny action extravaganza. It’s got a wafer thin storyline with straightforward revenge, but what keeps you hooked is Robert Rodriguez’s direction, cinematography, music and a solid performance from Antonio Banderas. The action choreography needs very special mention as it’s got some really crazy sequences. The cameo from QT was funny enough. An entertaining watch.

    ★★★

    A crime drama that takes a 360 turn degree shift and turns into a crazy vampire ride from its halfway mark. It’s a complete Robert Rodriguez special. You got George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino adding more to this crazy fun ride. It’s worth watching for its bizarre entertainment.

    ★★★★

    A dark disturbing psychological thriller, following a sociopathic stringer who goes to any extent to record violent footages in the nights of LA. The harsh realities of the capitalistic society we live in, is portrayed in an unsettling and unnerving manner. Jake Gyllenhaal as the creepy maniac is simply outstanding and delivers one of his best ever performances. A highly recommended watch.

    The movie carries an indulging atmospheric vibe that’s both tough and tender, similar to its lead character, completely absorbing you into its world. The neon filled cinematography and synth heavy musical score, add to its flavor. The character study is brilliant, which is elevated to its next level by the impeccably charming performance of Ryan Gosling. The action sequences are ruthless and brutal.  A highly recommended action drama, that’s full of style and substance.
