This is a misfire by Clint Eastwood as he teams up with young Charlie Sheen in this buddy-cop film, a genre which was massive at the time. Its not that the film is bad, its just nothing special. Humdrum, cliched actioner offers nothing we haven't seen before. If Eastwood (who has a unique presence, even in this mediocre role) wasn't around, it would be almost unwatchable. But the moral "lessons" of the film are even more annoying than its cliches: it seems to suggest that a "boy" becomes a "real MAN" only when he learns how to punch and kill people.
A sequel to Every which way but loose, any which way you can is not as good as its predecessor but still great fun. The fights are good particularly the last huge fight with Wilson this fight just seem to go on and on. Wilson is one tough looking guy with very big arms. Until Philo(Clint) shows him who's boss. I think this movie was made not only because 'Every which way but loose' was a success, but also because they felt Philo's character deserved a better ending to his story. Since the first one ended a little darker and not with a bang. They are like one four hour movie check out both if you like bar fights, bikers, cops and orangutans.
Godzilla by Gareth Edwards will polarize audiences. For one the giant lizard is barely on screen and even the fleeting moments are punctured by the focus being strictly on the humans. This is not to say this is a bad adaptation of the iconic Japanese monster- if anything this is more faithful than the 1998 effort. The scenes of mayhem are well executed but we have seen all the carnage so many times it doesn't surprise us anymore. De-sensitivity has set in and even scenes of massive waves rising and hurling towards land don't bring out any kind of excitement. On the other hand, some moments of silence are good- including a scene on a railway track which is a highlight. The actors are all competent.
