So here we are with one of the biggest rip-offs going. The DVD cover itself lured me in with it's poor copy of the AVP: Requiem cover. That, it's £2.97 price, and the fact I door enjoy the odd B, C or even D-movie. In the film starts off with our soon to be hero jogging along listening to his MP3 player unaware of the large spacecraft crashing behind him. Thankfully he soon discovers the crashed ship and starts the usual running away from dodgy CGI creature. Along the way I soon noticed that he only has one facial expression and that is "I'm confused". You've got all the typical character types thrown into the mix trapped between the two terrifying masters of death and destruction... The Alien and the Hunter. In the blue corner we have the alien, with an upper body inspired by Alien, and it's lower body is fantastically a giant spider. Hurrah. This whirlwind of death doesn't look too bad when it's pure CGI running around, but unfortunately when we get to the close-ups it does become a bit of a let down. Next up in the red corner is the Hunter, this silent killer armed with a hi-tech laser gun and a piece of rope tries to hunt down the deadly creature. The funny thing about the Hunter is the speed at which it raises it's gun, during this time you could quite easily have walked away, oh and not forgetting it's truly awful aim. Combined with the fact that it looks like something from Power Rangers it should certainly have the Predator quaking in it's boots. As for the human element trapped in the middle I've never such an awful bunch of rejects, in fact I'd feel quite good about my chances of survival with them around.
Ah the good old Hammer Horror films, what sweet music they made. The story is loosely based on Bram Stoker's novel with the excellent Christopher Lee as the Count and Peter Cushing as van Helsing giving the perfect combination of hero and villain. Obviously the film does look a bit dated considering it is now almost fifty years old, but it is still a very entertaining film. Although Lee only gets to speak a few lines in the film, he does pull of a very memorable performance and certainly one of his more famous roles.
Everyone's favourite mutant is back and this time he's got his own film. The film covers the story of Logan when he was a child to when he gets his adamantium skeleton, and beyond. Although this is covering the origin of Wolverine we do get to see lots of other mutants along the way, mainly Wolverine's nemesis this time played by Liev Schreiber. The fight scenes in the film are much improved on the X-Men trilogy and Wolverine really does look as though he is the best at what he does.
On a final note, Ryan Reynolds is brilliant as Wade Wilson AKA Deadpool and I certainly hope he gets his own Deadpool film.
Chev Chelios is back. After being dosed with an incurable poison, and falling from a helicopter things looked pretty bleak. Still when has Hollywood ever let a little thing like death stop a sequel?
This time Chelios has had his heart replaced with an artificial one that needs to be charged otherwise he'll die. So as with the first film Chelios heads out on the rampage, but to find his heart rather than an antidote. The action is still over the top, and there is still plenty of dark humour. Unfortunately this suffered the same problem as most sequels the idea is no longer original. Still a great film and well worth seeing.
