Puncture Wounds

When deciding whether or not to purchase or rent a DVD/Blu-Ray, the cover art is very important. If the cover features an actor or actress that’s appealing to the buyer, they are more likely to rent or purchase said DVD/Blu-Ray. Such as, whenever I, personally, see action legend Dolph Lundgren, I’m all over the release. […]

Non-Stop

Liam Neeson is the working man’s action star.  When Sylvester Stallone or Arnold Schwarzenegger kills a man, the weapon they use – gun, knife, steel pipe – is an extension of their bulging muscles.  Neeson’s body count is the result of craftsmanship and a strong work ethic.  Like a carpenter building his own house, only […]

Escape Plan

Action film icons Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger join forces to break out of the world’s most high-tech prison in 2013’s Escape Plan, now available on DVD and Blu-ray from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. It’s an action-packed, if somewhat mindless, thriller that casts Stallone as Ray Breslin, a professional prison escape artist who tests the effectiveness […]

The Prey (La proie)

Let me put this out there right off the bat: the 2011 French action-thriller The Prey (La proie) from Eric Valette (One Missed Call (2008)) bears a striking resemblance to The Fugitive (1993). You can tell as much from the trailer. But this is by no means a bad thing. In fact, if nothing else, […]

Spurred in no small part by the enormous support of his fans on Facebook, Vin Diesel reprised his role as Richard B. Riddick—the role that marked his debut as a leading man—in 2013’s Riddick. The character first appeared in 2000’s Pitch Black and his adventures continued in 2004’s The Chronicles of Riddick. Both films garnered […]

The Wolverine

The Wolverine

When compared to X-Men Origins: Wolverine, James Mangold’s The Wolverine (2013) is a bona fide masterpiece. On its own merits, though, it may be little more than an average-to-slightly above average superhero flick, but even still, it’s one of the three best pictures in Fox’s X-Men franchise alongside X-Men 2 and X-Men: First Class. Now, […]

Thor: The Dark World

I tried not to get my hopes up too high going into the Thor sequel, but couldn’t help but think the trailers looked really really good.  I kept telling myself that the trailers for Iron Man 3 looked great too, and that was a jokey mess.  Fortunately, The Dark World did not disappoint in any way and made for a wonderful […]

Redemption

When the name Jason Statham is heard, one can usually assume that a action packed film is not far behind.  With one of his newest films, however, this is not the case, unfortunately. Redemption (2013), although it has it’s moments of intense action, is more a character piece. This film is about Joey, played by Statham, an ex-special […]

Fernando Di Leo: The Italian Crime Collection Vol. 2

| July 30, 2013 | 0 Comments

Fernando Di Leo movies are hewn from concrete, and they don’t like you. They crash cars. They kidnap our children. They carry knives. And they’ll cut you if you look at them the wrong way and not even think twice about it. These are street-hardened, no nonsense crime pictures, and they come at you hard […]
