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.

Blind Detective (ç›

There`s always been an appeal to the concept of the “differently-abled badass. How do you make a cool character even cooler? Give him or her a disability to overcome. The audience is immediately along for the ride, and given how difficult feats of badassery are to accomplish even in perfect health, the character instantly wins our respect. So, how does a detective go about detecting without the use of his sight? Apparently, very goofily. 
A rousing, white-knuckle tale of the scrappy underdogs vs. big bad military forces, there’s a bit too much going on in Railroad Tigers to keep track of but it’s plenty of fun.
Sure, the leading men have chemistry, but unremarkable action sequences and jokes that are more cringe-inducing than genuinely funny ensure this won’t be front and centre in most moviegoers’ memories after they leave the theatre.
