90% Mandy (2018) Cage is exceptional and more memorable than past performances, but this is only due to the world that Cosmatos has crafted for him to coexist within. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

12% Peppermint (2018) The sets are boring. The action felt technically antiquated. Nothing stands out in an era of cinema where audiences are inundated with uniquely creative gun-fu-esque action. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

89% Super Dark Times (2017) The ending feels a tad hamfisted in its execution, but by and large is a fantastic debut film for Kevin Phillips, and I'm excited to see how he follows it up. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

19% Polar (2019) As just about every element of the film ranges from underwhelming to bad, I would be hard-pressed to recommend Polar to anyone other than hardcore fans of Mads Mikkelsen, and even then, there are countless better action films. - Cultured Vultures EDIT
