Brad Pitt is “Ladybug” an assassin who after a few derailments of assignments is determined to complete all of his assignments peacefully no matter what. As fate would have it, Ladybug’s latest assignment puts him in the path of some dangerous adversaries from around the globe. All of them have a connection although their objectives are different. All of this is taking place on the world’s fastest high-speed train. The story unfolds from there…
I had high hopes for this movie being that Brad Pitt and Sandra Bullock are both starring in it and one of the Producers is Antoine Fuqua. The movie is a high-speed chase through Japan…But alas…The story runs off the rails, you are not sure who is actually a bad guy or who can be trusted and there does not seem to be a destination/ending which leaves the train to just continuously speed on never ending tracks ultimately to derail. This movie could turn into a Franchise…Imagine “Bullet Train 2”. If this happens, I certainly hope the next installment is better than the first.
“Bullet Train” is only open in Theaters.
This is a 2 Star Movie!!
They say laughter is good for the soul. Well, there has not been much to laugh about lately, but if you see this latest installment of the Minions with all of their silliness, you will laugh.
Set in the 1970s, Gru is growing up in the suburbs. A fan of the super villain / super group known as “The Vicious 6”, Gru hatches a plan to become evil enough to join them. To his luck Gru gets some mayhem making backup from his loyal followers. Kevin, Stuart, Bob and new comer Otto who all deploy their skills to assist Gru in helping him make their first weapon and pull of their first mission, but the Vicious 6 have other ideas. The story unfolds from there…
This is not the best installment in this franchise, but the silliness and laughter it brings makes it worth checking out. There are a few silly gags, some laugh out loud moments and some karate type props that make this a fun diversion. If nothing else the star-studded cast, makes you want to see/hear who is doing the voices of these silly characters.
Believe or not, there were only adults in the theater when I saw this movie.
“The Minions: Rise of Gru” is open in Theaters
This is a 3 ½ Star Movie!!
Liam Neeson plays Alex Lewis, an expert assassin who gets caught up in a web of deception when he refuses to complete a job for a dangerous criminal organization. The FBI is on his tail as well as members of the organization that he did not deliver for. It’s a game of cat and mouse. The story unfolds from there…
I love Liam Neeson. He possesses a certain set of skills, but unfortunately “Memory” is unmemorable. This is not Liam Neeson’s fault, he did the best he could with what he was given. The story and action are stale and the plot’s not far behind. Is it possible for me to get the time back in my life that I spent watching this?
“Memory” did not open in theaters and now I understand why. It’s available to stream for a fee on Amazon Prime. “Memory” is definitely not one of Liam Neeson’s best movies, but if you are bored with nothing to do, check out “Memory” to see some of Liam Neeson’s certain skills.
This is a 2 Star Movie!!
