Film Reviews


Black Adam (12A) was a brilliant all out action packed spin off to 2019’s Shazam. Dwayne Johnson is awesome as the indestructible titled anti hero, who definitely doesn’t mess around fighting the bad guys. the story is pretty decent, has incredible special effects & a interesting mid credit scene. plenty of great fun performances & humor as well, roll on Shazam 2: Fury of the Gods. out next march. 4/5
The Princess (15) is a silly medieval action adventure, with a vulnerable & brilliantly indestructible heroic lead from White House Down’s Joey King. who fights lots of baddies to rescue her family. its on Disney Plus now, but its definitely not for kids though. highly recommended for grown up’s only. 5/5
Prequel to the first 2009 film, Orphan: First Kill (15) was a soldly made origin horror story. which embraces its camp & fun midway through. it has a very good mature themed plot, with excellent performances. especially by its returning main star Isabelle Fuhrman. surprisingly slightly better then the original. 4/5
Morbius (15), Jared Leto is excitingly brooding as the title role, in a rather dark, atmospheric, marvel horror film. Similar to the original Blade film, decently well paced & never boring, with mostly very good & some not so good special effects. Matt Smith, Tyrese Gibson & Jared Harris are great in their roles too. The two post credit scenes are pointlessly unnecessary. Overall the good overweighs the bad in the film, and it’s still a fun watch. Please bring on Marvel’s Midnight Sons film next. 3½/5
Paramount Animation’s monster wrestling adventure, Rumble (U) was alot of fun. had fantastic animation, action. very good story. humour, and funny voice acting from Will Arnett. Geraldine Viswanathan. Terry Crews. Chris Eubank, Michael Buffer & many others. highly enjoyable for the whole family. 4/5

Thor 4: Love & Thunder (12) was sadly not just the most disappointing Thor film. but also the most disappointing Marvel films todate, it over powers itself with constant unnecessary humour that mostly doesn’t work. Christian Bale is the only decent stand out as the main villain Gorr, The Butcher. nothing compared to the brilliant previous three films, even my mum didn’t like it & thats saying something. 1/5

It may not be as good as the first film, but Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (PG) was still a fun filled ride. with plenty of action, laughs & references to the computer game series. tv’s Swat actor Shemar Moore is very good as a new undercover agent character, Jim Carrey is bigger & hilarious as ever as Dr Robotnik. both Idris Elba & Colleen O Shaughnessey put on brilliant voices as Knuckles & Tails respectfully. also please stay for the extra mid credit scene. 3/5

Fortress (15) is a solidly decently made action film, in which Jesse Metcalfe. Kelly Greyson & Bruce Willis team up & fight against Chad Michael Murray’s bad guy’s. definitely much better then Willis’s most recent straight to dvd films. due to a very good plot. good performances & decent enough action scenes. its sequel Fortress 2: Sniper’s Eyes, is coming soon on dvd. 4/5

Resident Evil film series director Paul WS Anderson, directs his wife Milla Jovovich once again in Monster Hunter (12). A fun filled, action packed adventure. with very good special effects & interesting giant creature designs. also Warrior King’s Tony Jaa. Hellboy’s Ron Perlman & other members of the cast are good as well. 4/5

Seized (15) is a very good & gripping action film, with decent performances from Scott Adkins. Matthew Garbacz & Mario Van Peebles. brilliant action scenes. sold direction by Ninja: Shadow of a Tear director Isaac Florentine. similar to Taken, but its still great. 4/5
