What an awesome movie. Steve Rogers is a man who stands for what he believes in, and sticking by promises made to friends back in the 1940's is one of those things. As a result, new friends become enemies and battle lines are drawn. All three Captain America movies have been enormously entertaining. If the comics could bottle this stuff, Cap would be a best seller all the time. Loved seeing Spider-Man enter this universe. This movie is gold.
Solomon Kane is a ship's Captain known for his extreme courage and violence. The Devil wants his soul, so he hides out in a monastery and becomes a Puritan man of peace, to the point where he stands and does nothing while an innocent child is killed before his eyes. However, when they kidnap the young lady he's interested in, that changes everything and he unleashes the savage violence pent up inside him. A decent performance by Purefoy in a ho-hum movie.
Apparently in a future where all prisons are run for profit, innocent folks are set up for major crimes to use skills they already possess in order to boost ratings for a car race wherein the prisoners run laps in cars loaded with weapons trying to be the last car standing - by any means possible - in order to eventually win their freedom. Sounds plausible, right? Uh huh.
A found footage horror movie which is a "documentary" of an English brainiac and her impromptu band of explorers searching the underground caverns in Paris for the elusive Philosopher's Stone. It's fairly well done for the genre, and I would have given it a higher rating, but it doesn't stick to its own logic (at one point the Stone works, then a while later it is said to be a fake). Nothing frightening here either, only weak jump scares. I was hoping for more.
Slickly produced and wonderfully acted by the ensemble cast that each played a multitude of characters in many time periods. The haphazard way the story skitters back and forth amongst the time periods dulls the effect of the movie, as does the liberal message of unity and every life being equal in the grand scheme of things. The entirety of this massive nearly three hour undertaking could have been skipped and the same result achieved by everyone listening to a four minute song by Mandisa called Bleed the Same.
