Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li (2009) – Film Review

Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li (2009) – Film Review
Street Fighter’s biggest crime isn’t that it’s wretchedly written. What’s more criminal is that a film containing such colossal weirdness as a baby delivery by stomach punch has no right being this boring....

Sex Drive – Film Review

Sex Drive – Film Review
Sex Drive has more than enough smarts and heart to earn it a place with the stronger films it aspires to, managing to feel more like the John Hughes-era ‘80s coming-of-age comedies it pays homage to than the 3rd rate gross-out trash that litters the shelves today....

Taken (2008) – Film Review

Taken (2008) – Film Review
It’s not especially deep, and it’s not as intelligent as, say, the Jason Bourne films, but it is a relentlessly action-filled movie that doesn’t let up the pace for its entire run-time. The movie breezes by faster than you can shout “Holly Valance!” in a bad Australian accent, and is incredibly...

100 Feet – Film Review

100 Feet – Film Review
On the whole, it’s an entirely messy and inherently flawed film – one that follows tired genre conventions, stereotypes and hits every cliché like a game of Whack-a-Mole, not even managing to be a well-made generic retread....
