KING Of All Schmoes
Monday will be the day I plan to show off movie and TV cars.
|Directed by:||Chad Stahelski|
|Written by:||Derek Kolstad|
|Cast:||Keanu Reeves, Alfie Allen, Michael Nyqvist, Adrianne Palicki, Bridget Moynahan, Ian McShane, Willem Dafoe, John Leguizamo|
This doesn't reinvent the wheel but it's well done. Every fight and gun battle is shot + edited coherently which makes this worth watching alone. The action is natural and violent as well as greatly choreographed.
The plot isn't anything major but Reeves and co. act well enough. Especially Reeves. You feel for him and get satisfaction when he unleashes some vengeance. Michael Nyqvist as the villain gives a subtle performance while Willem Defoe shows up here and there.
Probably the best action movie from North America this year.
|Directed by:||Jason Bloom|
|Written by:||Kip Koenig, Scott Marcano|
|Cast:||William Atherton, Denise Dowse, Dara Tomanovich, Kevin West|
This is what is called, a career killer.
Both Pauly Shore and Stephen "Not Alec or Daniel " Baldwin both suffer big screen Armageddon here. Pauly, while I like Encino Man and Son In Law, is awful in this. After The Usual Suspects, Stephen basically does this.
The plot is non-existant. Our two protagonists try to score with two beautiful scientists, drive a male scientist coconuts, and basically be an annoyance to sentient beings while nearly destroying a science project. Characters come and go but have no bearing.
It's boring and not funny. Watch Dumb and Dumber instead.
