This low-budget superhero movie looks good on the outside, but is mostly hot air when it comes to its story and characters.
'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.
We wouldn't blame you for initially mistaking Last Summer for a teenybopper drama. I mean, it's got a nostalgic sounding title, soft-focus visuals, and centres on four good-looking teens enjoying an island getaway. Doesn't sound all that sinister, right? Wrong.
It’s ungainly at times, but an extremely fun cast make The Magnificent Seven ’16 a decently entertaining diversion, even if it won’t be viewed as a classic.
While it showcases familiar key visuals, "Ghost in the Shell" retrofits a Hollywood sci-fi action plot onto sophisticated source material. The negative buzz about casting a white actress as the protagonist is also fully warranted.
Hardly surprising but a shame nonetheless: this sequel sinks where its predecessor soars.
