Boasting a cultural mash-up set in the futuristic fusion of San Francisco and Tokyo, BIG HERO 6 is an enjoyable diversion by Disney's deployment of the little-known Marvel property. Making up for its perceptible plotline are the delightful visuals, engaging robotic slapstick, friendlier character treatment from the comics, and affecting battery at the heart of young genius Hiro and marshmallow-like but multifunctional machine named Baymax that builds to a 'satisfying' animated adventure for the young and old alike.
With a wicked atmosphere, sleek action sequences, and an intriguing character to elevate itself from bland assassin innuendo, JOHN WICK is a stylish, welcome return to kinetic form by Keanu Reeves, resulting to an agreeable consensus that his retired hit man days are far from over.
Seven years since captivating indie lovers and Oscar voters of the modern classic 'Once', writer-director John Carney returns with bigger stars jamming to more mainstream records in BEGIN AGAIN. His second musical have the more star power (attracting musically-inclined Oscar nominees and The Voice coaches) and more accessible music (with a shinier New York guitar case than the dilapidated one in Dublin) yet its appealing spark doesn't quite match the soulful glow of its predecessor. Begin Again may have undergone a mainstream treatment on its music, atmosphere and characters, but it still plays consistently on Carney's coursework of endearing platonic musicals.
Based on Nick Hornby's novel, 'About a Boy' is a charming and candid coming-of-age British comedy that ambles on the privy issues of isolation and intimacy to an endearing effect, thanks to the more humane side of Hugh Grant. The Oscar-nominated screenplay deftly blends laughter and heartbreak that lightens the mood of an otherwise messy situation between two strangers, Will (Grant) and young Marcus (Nicholas Hoult), who become each other's backup in an unlikely turn of events. Built on heartfelt comedy with an engaging dialogue made more natural by Grant's wry humor, 'About a Boy' is a fresh, modern take on the 'no man is an island'; but it's also a self-conscious reminder of the immaturity in growing old, and the respectability of growing up.
Hot on the heels of Liam Neeson's late resurgence as an action star, NON-STOP takes off in a tense premise that takes claustrophobia to the highest, inescapable altitude. A (surprising) ensemble cast had a promise of a sophisticated thriller but were surprisingly miserably written and confined as plot devices. The narrative turbulence happens at the end of the film and NON-STOP lands preposterously because of its final reveal. At least the cast looked like they enjoyed the ride and the movie was entertaining despite its misgivings. But the viewing seat belt is still fastened on what the hijacking film could have been for the better.
