Review: Mission: Impossible – Fallout

That was a very fine (and expensive) moustache. Following the events of Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, Ethan Hunt finds himself in the middle of a plot for global devastation instigated by ex-Mi6 and criminal mastermind Soloman Lane. He and his team have a limited time to stop miniature nuclear weapons from being armed across…

Review: The Mummy (2017) (2D)

You’ve probably made up your mind about The Mummy already, but honestly, it a good – and scary – ride! When two US military recon scouts see an opportunity to steal treasure from a village in the Persian gulf, they come across an ancient Egyptian burial ground that is more like a prison than a…

Review: Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation proves to be both an exciting action movie and a Bond-esque intelligent thriller at the same time. Thoroughly enjoyed myself! The IMF squad is dissolved into the CIA in the wake of their cowboy, reckless antics that have laid waste to public and private property whenever they are involved. But…

Review: Edge of Tomorrow (2D)

Tom Cruise continues to show us he isn’t getting old by strapping on a gun-totting exoskeleton to blast some aliens. But luckily for him his co-star is excellent and the film’s implementation is entertaining. In our very near future aliens arrive via meteor shower. Before long the entirety of greater Europe has been reduced to…

Review: Jack Reacher

Jack Reacher feels like it could have been a hard-boiled detective thriller but ends up feeling confused, predictable and at times… laughable. When a man guns down five innocent people only to plead innocent at his arrest later, he asks for one Jack Reacher. Reacher is an elusive “army cop”; a vigilante with military training…

Review: Oblivion

Having made his directorial debut with Tron: Legacy, Joseph Kosinski’s own original creation hits the big screen and proves to be more about atmosphere than action. Set in a future were aliens known as Scavengers (Scavs) have destroyed the Moon and as a result put Earth through apocalyptic destruction, forcing the human race to relocate. Tom Cruise plays Jack Harper, a…

Tribute Review: Tony Scott

Less than two weeks ago director Tony Scott passed away, and Hollywood lost one of its better contributors, a director whose films felt kinetic and real in an era of visual effects and padding. His films were often style over substance, and while his older brother Ridley Scott often directed cerebral movies, his films were…

Saga Review: Mission Impossible

I undertook the mission to review possibly one of the most awkward and least consistent film sagas out there, the Mission: Impossible movies! Asides from some similarities between films three and four, the only recurring element is Tom Cruise himself, and given the original film perhaps catapulted his career you cannot blame him for returning…
