Recent Reviews

The Killer

Well shot, well acted, etc. The movie follows a linear path and passes a couple of hours just fine. Nothing special.

Anatomy of a Scandal

It pulls you in with its convincing courtroom acting. But the contrived plot reveals and ludicrous ending diminish what could have been a powerful and realistic drama.

John Wick: Chapter 4

This was my favourite of all the movies. Highly stylized, full of energy and it had some kind of story too. I really enjoyed it. Fun movie.

Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part One

The action movie is alive and well. Some silly plot holes like the steam train that runs on fresh air, but this is pulsating Hollywood movies at their best.

John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum

Alright no surprises what happens here. Honestly this one seemed a bit repetitive, but the action was still intense and brilliantly choreographed.

John Wick 2

Ok I get John Wick now. This is crazy choreographed action from an empty shell of a man played by Keanu Reeves. I like it.
