A very average revenge thriller. It really feels like Lara Croft meets Death Wish (1974). Except that those two films were much better. Peppermint is full of genre clichés and is pretty predictable for the most part. But fortunately, the film is aided by a strong performance by Jennifer Garner, who also starred in the amazing Dallas Buyers Club (2013). But this flick also packs a lot of very gory action, so undemanding genre fans should enjoy this. Overall, this really isn't anything special, we've seen it all before. But it's worth a look for the curious, and can pack up a few moments.
This is the best French movie I've ever seen. I never would've thought that this flick would be so captivating. It skillfully mixes very funny comedy with heart-touching drama. It's a movie which deals with themes of deep friendship, humanity and also shows us the economical and social differences of the characters. And while Francois Cuzet is indeed very good, Omar Sy really killed it on the screen. The movie also has a memorable score. It's a pic that makes you feel good at the end and overall, I really recommend this film, it's one if the best I've seen in a really big while!!
Unbreakable (2000) and Split (2017) are both good and thrilling films. But this final installment of the trilogy actually happens to be the worst. It's really nothing special. But don't get me wrong, it's got its good points. The main one being the cast, with great performances by Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, but the most amazing one is again by James McAvoy, this man truly has talent. The film also has some interesting revelations and an ending that I really wasn't expecting. But overall, I still must say that Glass is a little disappointing. But for those who are fans of the two first flicks, this is worth a look!
Another good adaptation of a Stephen King story, which itself seems to be inspired by Poe's classic tale of The Tell Tale Heart. It's a movie that starts out spooky and atmospheric from the beginning, and just gradually keeps building up tension until the final last half hour, where it becomes pretty disturbing. The cinematography is nice and Thomas Jane gives a good lead performance. It's a movie that deals with the themes of greed, selfishness, guilt and retribution. Overall, 1922 is a nice little scare fest, and should receive more recognition. Recommended!!
From Kathryn Bigelow, the director who previously brought us the great The Hurt Locker (2008), and would later bring us Detroit (2017), comes a very good thriller on probably the most notorious manhunt in history. With terrific performances from Jessica Chastain and Jason Clarke, this film is captivating, with some thrilling moments. The script is detailed and complex, with a lot of information going by, so it may be hard to focuse on everything. Another thing that I like about Bigelow's movies are how grim, gritty and brutality realistic they are, in terms of filming, but also in terms of story telling. And this film indeed shows us the horrors of terrorism. Overall, this is a thriller to see. Recommended!!
