Mortal Kombat - based on the popular Midway arcade video game had everything fans wanted. Action, fighting and even fatalities. Well, not entirely. With a catchy theme song to boot, the movie was pretty much fun to watch because it was made to be fun to watch. With Robin Shou as the lead, Mortal Kombat gives us what we all want where Street Fighter fails. This is a movie that is worth watching even though it is cheesy in its own way.
Something familiar and yet different, Insidious takes us on a journey of a familiar haunted house story that brings us to another something different. While the movie scare factor is actually the sounds and the eerie moments of the film, the plot itself is something that you are familiar with. As we go along with the movie sequence, the topic of ghost (which there are many) is something that is difficult to touch but director James Wan and Leigh Whannell pulls it off pretty good and take us on another level of horror, even though it may not always be scary but original to its own. There is much I want to say about Insidious but it is best you watch it yourself to understand it.
The trilogy of the series, The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor sets us on a different adventure but sadly, I felt the movie was rather dull and uninteresting. Directed by Rob Cohen, it is now set in ancient China when a ruler was mummified, return to the world and now Rick O'Connell, his wife Evelyn and son Alex is once again battle the undead with the help of others. Sadly, there is much dullness in the movie that did not work too well and it is the weakest of the series. While the special effects was somewhat alright, its the plot of the film that brings it down. Fans of the Mummy will be disappointed.
The 5th installment and the best of the best of it all in the whole series, Fast Five has a simple plot that works and action sequences that is to die for. After the events of Fast & Furious and the returning cast from the previous series, get ready for an all-star cast with Dwayne Johnson adding the fuel of the furious. When a family member is threaten, we take care of our family. So when Dominic Toretto going after the most powerful influential man in Rio, he needs a team to pull it off. With action sequence to die for, fast cars and even a finale that gives this a bang of the summer, Fast Five is the best of the best in the entire series highly recommended.
