Colombiana (2011)

Columbiana (2011)

Columbiana is an action movie in style with Leon The Professional. Seeing as it was made by the same movie director, Luc Besson, I'd say it is an attempt at revitalizing the classic. Luc has done a lot to make this into a good movie. He's chosen a great main character, he's captured the atmosphere in the various location, he's matched colors and textures and created a variable beautiful and glum environment, and the special effects are absolutely perfect. The gunfire smoke, the bullet holes, the blood, everything keeps a good balance between realism and chaos, not too much nor too little destruction and mayhem. (more…)

Sniper 3 (2004)

Sniper 3 (2004)

Apparently people did appreciate the second Sniper movie, because they only waited two years before making the sequel this time. Or was it just because they already had this one planned? For the third and final part of the series our main character is a burned out man. Since movie 1 he has only four fingers on one hand, and since movie 2 his vision is starting to blur at times when it matters the most. In this movie he's trying to look like a tired old man, nearing retirement, on his final mission. (more…)

Transformers 3 - Dark Side Of The Moon (2011)

Transformers 3 (2011)

If you've seen the first two Transformers movies, you've seen this one as well.

It's swell, I say with a yell, but it's nothing new. After a while the intensity turns dull, because it's intense all the time, the suspense never has time to build up, the effect are always amazing. There's so much detail you stop paying attention to it. So much speed you get used to it, like driving at 200 km/h and then slowing down to 120.

The movie in itself isn't bad, but if you eat enough of something you'll lose taste. The plot is full of cliches, the actors all picked by appearance or racial background, the scenes all viewed from the optimal angles. So what am I really trying to say? I don't know, this sequel just didn't captivate me at all. The first Transformers was great, the second was just as good; they should have left it at that.

 rated 3/5: not bad

Sniper 2 (2002)

Sniper 2 (2002)

A full decade has passed since the filming of the first movie, and I guess that goes to show the first movie didn't gain the kind of recognition it should have gained, but that someone watched through it and thought "Hey, this is pretty good!" and decided to give it another shot and make a sequel. Though they added all the Hollywood elements missing in the prequel they didn't manage to make it better. (more…)

Sniper (1993)

Sniper (1993)

I can't believe I missed this movie earlier! It's not just a movie either, it's a whole trilogy. Not that it's that amazing a trilogy, there's nothing that makes it stand out above the rest, and that's probably the reason why I've never heard about it earlier. It's good action though, and it reminds me of the Rambo series, from the same decade too. I guess all movies can't make the headlights, some have to stay in the shadows, and this seems to be the movie in the shade this time around. (more…)

Taxi 4 (2007)

Taxi 4 (2007)

This is the final movie in the Taxi series before Luc Besson went to Hollywood and started making English movies instead. The movie with the same name with a different cast of characters is pretty much the whole series put together in one more commercial piece of regular action comedy. (more…)
