Dead Man Down Twists and Turns But It’s No Girl With The Dragon Tattoo!


Niels Arden Oplev received near unanimous raves for his original take on The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo so it makes sense that his first film in English would be a complicated tale of vengeance. Dead Man Down, written by Fringe’s J.H. Wyman focuses on Viktor, right-hand man of crime boss Alphonse and Beatrice, the scarred victim of a drunk driver who lives with her nearly deaf mother. Viktor and Beatrice’s is the central relationship and a most unorthodox courtship.

Hot Trailer: Parker–Jason Statham Takes On Richard Stark’s Iconic Hard-Boiled Career Criminal!

A lot of very good actors – including Mel Gibson and the late Lee Marvin – have played Richard Stark’s Parker. He’s a career criminal with a simple code: don’t steal from people who can’t afford it; don’t hurt anyone who doesn’t deserve it, and if you say you’ll do something and don’t, he’ll make sure you regret it.

Now Jason Statham is taking on the hard-boiled career criminal with a code in a movie simply called Parker, opening on January 25, 2013. Seems like a pretty good fit, to me…

The Spirit Of Snake Plissken Lives In Lockout!

lockout-2012 lock-out09

Lockout is to Escape From New York what Battle Beyond The Stars was to The Magnificent Seven and The Seven Samurai – a low-budget romp that transplants one’s setting [Battle Beyond The Star to space from the old west or ancient Japan; Lockout to space from a post-apocalyptic New York that’s been turned into a gigantic prison].. The plot remains the same, but the setting and the characters’ names have changed. The result is fast-paced, violent entertainment that’s enhanced by witty dialogue and just enough unexpected variations on time worn themes to keep the audience guessing.

Drive: Art Film with Crime, or Arty Crime Film?


Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive is a strange beast. The ads make it look like an action/crime thriller, but it’s more a suspenseful noir-ish art film with occasional ultra-violent outbursts. Between Refn’s direction and Ryan Gosling’s performance in the lead, it is one of the oddest good films of the year.

First Look: UK Gangster Flick London Boulevard!

In the criminally underseen In Bruges, Colin Farrell won a Golden Globe for his portrayal of a hitman. In the upcoming London Boulevard – which hits UK screens later this month – he returns to that kind of role as he plays an ex-con turned celebrity bodyguard [Keira Knightley plays the celebrity] whose past [in the form of Ray Winstone’s godfather-like character] won’t leave him be. Think of of it as a UK mash-up of In Bruge, The Godfather and The Bodyguard. It’s also the directorial debut by Academy Award-winning [for The Departed] screenwriter  William Monahan, who also wrote the script. Sounds like a lot of fun to me.
