No Sudden Move

No Sudden Move

Set in 1950’s Detroit, “No Sudden Move” is about a group of small-time Criminals who are given a job to steal a document, but they do not know who their boss is and they have to work together to uncover what’s really going on. Then the job at hand goes terribly wrong and the Criminals find themselves up against each other and not knowing who to trust.

This is a Steven Soderbergh production. This crime caper is crazy cool! There are no special effects, just plain old-fashion fist fights, regular hand guns and pistols. The movie weaves its way thru Detroit, MI during a time of change…

The cast is HUGE and they all make this movie entertaining, enjoyable; funny at times and even a bit silly.

“No Sudden Move” is not at the box office. It opened July 1st and is streaming on HBO MAX. Check it out!!

This is a 4 Star Movie!!

Sicario: Day of Soldado

“Sicario: Day of Soldado” starts a new chapter in the continuation of the first installment “Sicario”. The team is faced with a new battle in the ongoing drug wars where there are no rules and regulations. Everything and everyone is fair game. The team has been tracking the Mexican Cartel who has been trafficking terrorist across the border into the US.

In an attempt to get to the Cartel, Matt Graver (Josh Brolin) calls on his old buddy Alejandro (Benicio Del Toro) whose family was murdered by a Drug Cartel Kingpin to help the team escalate the war between the Mexican Cartels. The story unfolds from there…

There is never a dull moment in “Sicaro: Day of Soldado”. The movie is bloody and “In-your-face” violent. As long as the story stays true to its self, everything is fine, but there are a few detours that throw the movie a bit off track and that is why it’s not quite as thrilling as the first installment, but none the less it’s worth seeing as there are a few surprises at the end.

This is a 3 Star Movie!!

Star Wars Ep. VIII: The Last Jedi in 3D

“Star Wars Ep. VIII: The Last Jedi” continues the saga from The Force Awakens as those heroes join the galactic legends in what turns out to be an EPIC adventure. Age-old mysteries of the Force and un-told/unfinished stories from the past are unlocked. The story unfolds from there…

If you are a “Die-Hard” Star Wars fan, you will love “Star Wars Ep. VIII: The Last Jedi”.

The movie is EPIC in its delivery and covers a lot of ground. There is plenty of thrilling action, super-cool special effects and breath-taking cinematography.

There are a lot of twists and turns which helps to keep a long-running (2:32) movie interesting.

A bit more of the “Dark-side” surfaces in this installment. This is the middle installment of a Trilogy. The door is open and set for the third installment. Mark Hamill does an excellent job paving the way for the new younger “Skywalkers” to come.

This is a 4 1/2 Star Movie!

Sicario

It’s Friday Night at the movies literally! I had to hop off a plane from Sacramento, CA and race to the theater to see “Sicario” because on Saturday it’s Matt Damon’s “The Martian”.

The war against drugs continues to escalate. A by the book FBI agent, Kate (Emily Blunt) is enlisted by an elite government task force official, Matt (Josh Brolin) to aid in the fight. The leader of the team is an enigmatic consultant with a dark past (Benicio Del Toro). The team sets out on a clandestine journey that takes them back and forth across the border between the US and Mexico.

Events that occur on the mission cause Kate to question everything that she believes in order to survive. She is not sure who can be trusted. The story unfolds from there…
“Sicario” is a Dark Saga that is ambitious. It gets the word across. It’s not black and white, but deals a lot in the “Gray Areas”. You see up close what the war on drugs really looks like. There is plenty of action, suspense and intrigue. It’s in your face bloody.

On a small front, “Sicario” reminds me of Steven Soderbergh’s 2000 hit “Traffic”.
“Sicario” is a must see!
