American Dragons (1998)

American Dragons (1998)

The story of an American cop and a Korean cop, that coincidentally end up with the same case. The Yakuza and the Mafia families are on the verge of war, and it seems a third party is involved, assassinating different members of the families to take over. Lots of action, good music and typical main characters. Enemies at first, with different religions and personalities, that eventually become great friends. If you love action, you'll love this, it has everything an action movie needs, and is just like all the other moves from this era. The end provides a nice twist to things as well.

Game Plan (2007)

Game Plan (2007)

Getting tired of sports movies yet?

Well I'm not, and this is probably the best one I've watched so far. A genius combination of humor, drama and football. I don't watch much real sports, and definitely not any American football, but I love movies like this. The Rock does some great acting, and fits in his role better than any other movies with him I've seen so far. A great story, with good actors, good filming, and a nice happy ending.

Things aren't always predictable either, which is good, wouldn't be much fun if they were. The intro is a pretty interesting one as well, full of strange childish drawings that don't relate to the movie itself at all unless you've read this, read something else, or seen the movie cover (which I hadn't). The plot features a star, on his rise towards glory, and a little unexpected twist to his life. It's different from all other sports movies I've seen, so far. Good stuff, and I recommend it.

Hercules In New York (1970)

Hercules In New York (1970)

Arnold Schwarzenegger's legendary first movie! If I spelled his last name wrong, sorry, it's a name that
I will probably never learn to spell. About the movie itself is utter crap. The plot is an interesting one, Hercules (the character Arnold plays) takes a trip to New York in order to have a look around. He doesn't blend in very well and starts the visit chaotically by turning over a taxi, among other small displays of strength.

It would be a good movie if it wasn't for the fact that you don't understand half of what Arnold's saying, he can't act at all, and the movie is slow, so slow. The action isn't very dramatic, there isn't any real emotion in the various events that take place, and it's old. The colors are dull and the filming angles aren't very unique. If you're a big Arnold fan, watch it anyway, unless you don't want to be disappointed.

The reason Arnold is in this movie at all is definitely because of his incredibly muscular mass, which does fit in nicely with him being Hercules and all, but with a different main character it would probably have looked much more professional. I don't recommend this movie, in best case scenarios you'll fall asleep and not have to watch through it.

Merchants Of Death (1997)

Merchants Of Death (1997)

Action, action and more action. It's a bit too much action even for an action lover like me. The movie is filled with explosions, people flying across the screen, unrealistic gunfire and a shallow plot based on revenge. Need I say more? Not to be too harsh though, it's a good action movie, and if you like action you'll like this one too, but don't watch it if you've already seen a dussin movies with exactly the same plot, it gets a bit old. The uniqueness you might be looking for is definitely not here.

 rated 2/5: decent

Coronado (2003)

Coronado (2003)

If you like to see great movie plots destroyed, then I highly recommend this one. It is by far the best example you'll ever find. The special effects are good, probably had a lot of money spent on them - but the actors suck, the filming sucks, everything suck. Plot is about a revolution, and it would probably have been great if a more competent Director had taken care of the idea, like Tarantino, maybe. I watched this movie a few years ago, and since it was so crappy I supposed that most people wouldn't know anything about it. Now, a few years later I see a review in an old movie magazine, and they actually thought it was good. I don't know what they were thinking. I don't recommend this.

Vampire In Brooklyn (1995)

Vampire In Brooklyn (1995)

Another great movie with Eddie Murphey as the main character. It's a tale of Romance, Drama and Comedy. Very similar to the above review indeed, a classic character in a new location. Lots of comedy in this one too, and I think the preacher in this and the movie above are both the same. Great movie. If you like the above, you'll like this one, or vice versa.

 rated 3/5: not bad
