Movie Ratings and Reviews

Mr. and Mrs. Incredible (San kei hap lui)

Pretty charming story with a certain dark humor that I actually enjoyed. Not much action in this one, but its quite watchable anyway.

Death Race
Death Race(2008)
½

En inte helt oangenäm film som blandar Mad Max med 2fast2furious på ett sätt som faktiskt känns helt ok. Jason Statham är alltid bra i sina fysiska roller och även om han mest kör runt i bil i den här filmen så får han en och annan chans att flexa upp sig ändå.

Storyn är ganska tunn, men det är mycket action för pengarna!

Rush Hour 3
Rush Hour 3(2007)

I liked this one. Tucker is going at it as always and Jackie is growing into his part as entertainer as well to great combination. Not as good as the first one and the story is the weakest of the 3, but still a nice movie.

Arn - Tempelriddaren (Arn: The Knight Templar)
½

A nice movie that unfortunately rush things a bit to please the audience in relation to the books I am told. The scene shifts are a bit to frequent and I think that longer scenes between shifts would have been good, especially during the jumps between the swedish lovestory and the middle east war (which is very short and a bit confusing).

I Am Legend
I Am Legend(2007)

A slow and sad story which is carried only by Will Smith. It has suspense and some few action scenes, but for the most part it is a drama, but a good one.

30 Days of Night
½

A movie with great potential that sadly does not live up to it, or rather choose a more narrow path of horror that is not as appreciated by the greater mass. It has one of the more interesting settings, but lack story background and character development, which makes it a bit hollow and although it add to the sinestry of the Vampires, it does not invite you into the horrors of the main characters.

The Vampires are the most sinister and feline I have ever seen and I must say they really worked, even if I did not really like the main vampire for some reason. Its also one of the most realistic, if such a word can be used when describing mythological beast, behaviour of a unhuman creature such as a Vampire.

The main characters are bleak and I find it hard to get involved in their sufferings, mostly because of poor character backgrounds rather than poor acting. The story is...well, thin to say the least. Vampires come from nowhere and kill people for 30 days and then vanish again in thin air and in between we have people that are trying to hide and stay alive, but are doing to in ways I must say are very silly and unrealistic. The time jumps reduce the momentum of the movie, which in all honestly is nothing more than savage feedings from the vampires and a lot of seaking around.

This is not an action movie or a scary movie, its a suspense drama with blips of gory violence and as such its a film that you either love or hate. Its a shame, because it had great potential to be so much more.

Meet the Robinsons

A very entertaining movie which has a few twist and turns that will entertain you. I recommend it.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
½

Like the book this is the weakest in the Harry Potter series. Its 2 hours of transportation towards next one with an angry Harry filmed without any real depth or coherence.

Johnny English
½

One of the better adaptments of Rowan Atkinsons phenomenal comedy talent and while it could use some polish its very entertaining. If they make a second version I am sure to see it.

Vacancy
Vacancy(2007)

A real nailbiter that has great psychological suspense and great actors.

Arthur and the Invisibles (Arthur and the Minimoys)

An amazing movie that was really entertaining for the entire family.

The Bourne Ultimatum

A very strong movie and a great end (?) of this trilogy. Its fast paced and although I would have wished the action scenes had less jumps in them, it works well for this movie. There are a few loose ends that I would have liked to see tangled up, but perhaps one day we will learn more about Jason Bourne and his past, perhaps as its own movie? My favorite part of the movie was the ending that really make the trilogy go full circle.

The Matrix
The Matrix(1999)

When I first saw this my mind was blown away. It took almost 3 minutes after the movie ended before the applauds came because people was still not sure what they had just witnessed. A true breakthrough in movie history and a great movie.

DOA: Dead or Alive
½

A female version of Mortal Kombat that kick ass. Great combat and an entertaining story.

Transformers
Transformers(2007)
½

Mmmmmm...I have liked transformers since they first appeared as a cartoon and this movie is just great. The fighting scenes are a bit blurry however and its not always crear who is who of the transformers, but other than that...its 2 thumbs up.

Evan Almighty
½

A cute story with some funny episodes.

The Last Legion

Not the worst movie I have seen, but not the best either. The mix of fantasy and Romans feel out of place and the story is more fantasy than believable. Its a lowbudget movie, but it has its moments which make it a nice sunday movie.

Skinwalkers
Skinwalkers(2007)

A nice werewolf movie with an interesting twist to the legend of the shapeshifters. Has some lowpoints, but its a nice sunday movie.

Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer

I had this comic and its a great story. I always liked the Silversurfer and I think they did good with his character in this movie.

300
300(2007)

For a movie based on a comic book this was a great movie. It has a new edge to it that is interesting and some of the comments and sequences are great.
