'Vengeance of an Assassin' is impossible to take seriously but if you grew up on the low-budget 80s action movies of Cannon Films and similar studios, it is possible to enjoy.
Boasting a star-studded cast, a dark and intriguing plot, and a director-actor brother duo, "Gringo" starts off with a promising set-up only to lose its steam as the film progresses, leaving a bad aftertaste.
A bizarre, complex, and provocative alien film that is more visually stunning than gory and violent as others before it, "Annihilation" explores deeper and darker themes than just our natural responses to otherness.
Overly ambitious in presenting too many perspectives, the film lacks a clear direction for both the characters and the audience, wasting a promising opening and convincing performances.
"The Cured" is a dark and depressing zombie film about guilt and politics, presented in rather obvious metaphors that are hyper-relevant in the current times of divisive ideologies.
Stunning visuals, astounding scores, and flawless performances can’t compensate for an overly ambitious film trying to mix a love story with terrorism and oceanography.
Boasting a mix of frenzied thrills and social commentary, 'Train to Busan' is very much alive on arrival.
Even the spectacular action, set pieces and fairly effective humour can’t make up for the incoherent mess of a narrative in Tsui Hark’s third instalment of the “Wuxia Sherlock Holmes” Detective Dee series.
This heartfelt tale of music makers and dreamers of dreams will put a song in your heart and a spring in your step.
A chintzy knockoff inept in nearly every way, 'Guardians' demonstrates that just because good superhero movies are a relatively common occurrence now, that doesn’t mean making one is easy.
"A Bad Moms Christmas" impresses with hilariously well-written dialogues delivered by a fantastic cast who flawlessly portrays six unique yet relatable mom personalities.

Marauders (2016) – Review

While 'Marauders' wants to be more than your average direct-to-DVD crime movie, it’s woefully lacking in thrills and its mystery is too muddled to be engaging.
