Peter Berg-Mark Wahlberg duo churn out an engrossing account of the Boston Marathon bombings, the treatment of the screenplay somewhat similar to 'Deepwater Horizon' and 'Lone Survivor'. The character development is extensive and supplemented by decent performances from the ensemble. However, Berg is no Bigelow and he doesn't quite attempt to traverse those benchmarks either. (3.5/5)
While's there's quite a bit of knowledge you'll gain about the history of English literature, this flick doesn't really work as an effective horror-thriller. However, this is one of the goriest English films I've seen in recent memory.
An actioner with invincible heroes, measly villains and unimaginative set-pieces. The +ves (yes, the few good ones!) - a) Donnie Yen and his fast-paced antics b) The cameo from Ice Cube at the end c) I have less nose-hair than before the movie started. Now the -ves a) Vin Diesel is boring b) His team sucks c) Toni Collette for a villain? Jeez, that's just too many bad 'F&F' vibes d) Everything else (even the OST isn't great this time around). Padukone is just wasted in an inconsequential role just as Tony Jaa, Ruby Rose and the rest of 'em.
