“Black and Blue” is a fast-paced action thriller with many twists and turns.
Alicia West (Naomie Harris) is a rookie cop on the New Orleans Police Department who accidentally observes several fellow officers killing some questionable people execution style. Once her fellow officers realize they have been caught, they try to kill Alicia, but she gets away. The story unfolds from there…
“Black and Blue” would be an awesome movie had there been a back story and more depth into the key characters. There are several unfinished mini stories that you have to use you own imagination as to what may have happened in the past to lead them to where they are today.
All of that being said, the movie has non-stop action, intrigue and is worth checking out.
This is a 3 Star Movie!!
She’s Back!! “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” is a visual feast!!
After Maleficent’s goddaughter Aurora gets engaged to Prince Phillip, they each start questioning the complex matters of family. Aurora wants Maleficent to meet the King and Queen and do all of the things that a mother would do when her daughter gets engaged. Little does Aurora know her godmother already knows the King and Queen all to-well. Additionally the hatred between man and the fairies still continues. The story unfolds from there…
As I stated in my opening “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” is a visual feast. The cinematography, action and special effects are on point. There is a lot of new ground to cover in this second installment. There are many new cast members and you get a peek at what may be Maleficent’s back story.
The movie is quite enjoyable. It’s sad that it took so long for this sequel. It’s been 5 years since the 2014 Global Box Office hit “Maleficent” hit theaters.
The paid critics didn’t seem to like this installment, but I think it’s worth a look.
This is a 3 ½ Star Movie!!
I was so excited when I first learned of “Gemini Man”. The movie trailers made the movie seem interesting and intriguing. When I saw the Rotten Tomatoes score of 26, my heart fell. I told myself I was going to keep an open mind.
Henry Brogan (Will Smith) just completed what he felt was his last assassin job for the DIA (Defense Intelligence Agency). He planned to retire and enjoy time on his boat. The DIA had other ideas. They did not want to lose their elite assassin, so they decided to take action. The story unfolds from there…
The visuals for “Gemini Man” are impressive. There is a ton of action, suspense and intrigue. Will Smith turns in a strong performance. The problem with “Gemini Man” is the lack of foundation and a back story to tie all of the elements and other people you see into the movie.
“Gemini Man” is not a 5 or 4 star movie. I think it’s definitely worth a higher score than 26.
If you like Will Smith and suspenseful movies, you should check out “Gemini Man”.
This is a 3 Star Movie!!
