Hostel: Part 2 (2007)

Hostel Part Two (2007)

It's not over yet. The hostel is still there, the organization still exists, hiding in the shadows. This time it isn't three guys in search for the perfect place, it's three girls. Bloodier, more twisted, and with a little insight in the organization behind the whole thing.

If you liked the first part you'll like this one as well. Well-filmed and with a blood-filled storyline. Will there be a part 3? I suppose so. Until then.

Hostel (2005)

Hostel (2005)

Three fellow guys in search for pleasure roam around the world looking for paradise. They get a tip for the perfect place by a newly found friend they thought they could trust, but it doesn't turn out as they expected it, and they shouldn't have trusted their friend, not at all. One after another they disappear, their friends disappear and they uncover hidden, horrible truths. It's a good movie. Brutal, disgusting, bloody, but with good actors, a good story and good filming. It's not your typical Hollywood movie. No happy endings, no expected twists. It's not very scary, but it's intense and disgusting. If you don't have anything against bloodbaths, it's worth a watch.

Bad Ass (2012)

Bad Ass (2012)

Finally it looks like Danny Trejo is getting some roles as lead character! In this he plays a grumpy old man that beats up two punks on a bus and gets internetally famous. Life is complex though, it gets shitty, but he fights his way through the shittyness. Age-wise he fits right in, he's almost 70, but I still find the fact that he's aging a bit depressing. Also depressing is the fact that it took him this long to start starring in good movies. He's had incredibly many minor roles in other movies. Not that he's a good actor or anything, he's just badass. This is a decent movie, nothing fantastic. If you like Danny Trejo it's worth the watch. If not... maybe not.

Contraband (2012)

Contraband (2012)

Here's another great action movie you must see. It has the regular mixture of criminals and good guys and criminals that are actually good guys, a good plot, and good action. Wahlberg is in the movie too, and ever since I say The Big Hit I've become a bit of a fan. Nothing will ever compare (to the Big Hit) but still... this is one more good action movie in his list of merits.

Mission Impossible 4 - Ghost Protocol (2011)

Mission Impossible - Ghost Protocol (2011)

Since when did they decide to get rid of the numbers before the Mission Impossible movies? Since now, I guess. I feel I'm running out of time here, so I'll just say this: This was a good movie. If you like the MI trilogy, you will like this. The mood is somewhat lighter than the previous movies, but the stunts/effects/etc are all the same if not even flashier/riskier/more varied. If you like action movies like I do it's a must see.

Haywire (2011)

Haywire (2011)

The movie starts at a cafe. A young woman walks in. A while later a man arrives. He sits down at her table, you can see before he walks in she's not happy about it. They start talking. You start wondering what it's all about. Suddenly he throws a cup of hot coffee in her face and bashes her head into a solid object close to the camera. You can really see the impact. The fight continues and my first impression is: professional. If you liked the Bourne Identity series you'll love this. It has the same professional feel to it, but at the same time it's not as dark as Bourne Identity. It doesn't have the same pressure, but it certainly has a lot of suspense; a lot of good fight scenes.

All the while it manages to remain calm. You get involved in the action in a strange way, many things are filmed from such an angle that you feel present, but at the same time the atmosphere is distant. Everything is calm. It makes me wonder, was there a soundtrack? I don't remember one. Did the lack of a soundtrack make it seem all the more professional, does the silence invoke a sense of reality in the movie? I should mention btw (spoiler btw) that both of these two characters presented in the start of the movie are agents. In a way it feels like a mixture of Mission Impossible and Bourne Identity. At the same time it's fresh. It's a great movie. Highly recommended.
