Real Steel is a mixture of Rocky, Transformers & the champ, Charlie (Jackman) is a retired boxer who makes money out of boxing robots and owes a lot of money to several people, his ex girlfriend dies leaving him with custody of a son he dosnt know or want.
He ends up spending a few weeks with his son Max and they find a new robot to train to box and bond along the way.
The robot fighting effects are pretty cool and the fights are enjoyable as the underdog Robot called Atom works his way up in the robot fighting world. I really enjoyed this and is deffo a good family film and kids will get a real kick out of the robot fights.well worth a trip to the pics for Fathers and sons everywhere.
The whole idea of a movie could have turned out crap if handled in a cheesy way but its not & i was surprised and how serious the film is and the charactors and made all the better that Craig, Ford and the rest are not cracking stupid jokes throughout.
some good action.The style of the film is good with the classic western and the sci fi mix and great that not all the action takes place at night or in the dark and great you get a good look at the Aliens and big battle towards the end, where with a lot of Alien movies you dont realy see the Aliens, good effects and cgi looks good.
As summer blockbusters go its a good popcorn flick and was nice to get a break from 3D as i dont think it would have worked as well in 3D, As Jon Favreau said in Moviefest intro it wasnt shot digitally to keep it authentic and you can deffo tell.
Craig plays a good part as the moody cowboy without a memory who wakes up with stange braclet on and dosnt who why or who he is, Ford is good as the towns tough guy ex general rancher, Sam Rockwell could have been given a bit more to do though.If you like sci fi you will enjoy but if goin with small kids can see them covering their eyes for parts.
This Movie was a great start to Moviefest on Sunday, Seen the trailer and just thougt it would be ok but it was atually hilarious was much funnier than i expected and story flows nicely.
Jesse Eisenberg is kidnapped by two bad guys who need to get hold of 100k, They who strap a bomb to him and force him to rob a bank to get the cash, he inlists the help of his mate with hillarious results.
Some great one liners and the charactors are far from pc with their statements throughout, If you want a laugh i would thoroughly recomend.
I really enjoyed this movie,Good Story and great acting from the kids, Took me back to when i seen Goonies, Gremlins as a kid, can see the Speilberg influences and is like a tribute to him, But Abrams was a kid who seen these movies and made his own as a kid which is were half the plot came from.
Its half kids coping with loss an half b monster movie, Go see you will enjoy plus will take you back to the good old days of summer blackbusters as a kid.
Thanks for the tickets guys.
Very enjoyable movie, great effects and the skinny pre Captain America Steve Rogers is well done, some nods to previous Marvel films which fans wil enjoy.
As summer blockbusters goe Captain America is well worth a look, Plenty of action and great popcorn flick,Does it really need to be in 3-D Probably not.
Can deffo see the Raiders of the Lost ark influence as Joe Johnston worked on it too.If you enjoyed Iron Man,Thor and X -Men First Class you will get a kick out of this, Bring on the Avengers!
Stick around after credits for teaser.
If you are planning a trip to the pics X-Men is deffo worth the Dont let the terrible last X-Men film that was out a few years ago put you off.
The movies starts off in 1944 then jumps to the 60's telling the story of a young Magneto & Professor X,good story and some good action and a few nice nods to the previous X-Men films.
Matthew Vaughn does a great job rebooting the franchise and can see major bond influences in the first hour,very enjoyable and you will be looking forward to seeing more X-Men movies in the future.
Go see Nuff said!
(Warning if you dont want to hear about spoilers avoid reading any mag reviews or comicbook websites)
The best way i can describe Source Code is that it a mixture of Quantum Leap (For those that watched it) Grounhog Day and Denzel Washington's Deja Vu from a few years back.
Colter Stevens (Gyllenhaal) is sent back in time 8 minutes before a train explosion to try and find out who the bomber is,he goes back several times finding out info along the way, much like the choose you own adventure books from years ago.Gyllenhaal plays a good part as has not the done action type role much before and has good chemistry with Monaghan support from Farmiga , The movie deffo keeps your attention throughout and has a few edge of seat moments,Duncan's style is good will keep the sci fi fans happy and will have you pondering about time travel after you see it .
Go see it's well worth a trip to the pics.
This was a lot better than i expected, Good action and a good blockbuster well worth seeing on the big screen.The story is pretty basic and there is a few cliches, but thats hard to avoid now cause there has been so mnay Alian invasion movies, would have been good to see the aliens a bit more but no time with the battle.
Its getting a few crap reviews from the critics but i wouldnt let that stop you, if you just want a trip to the movies and be entertained than this does the job.
Firstly this movie is advertised as Bourne meets Inception when it isn't like either or as good, don't get me wrong but just don't go in expecting an edge of seat action thriller.
The premise is good saying that everything is planned out and when you miss a bus or had to back home cause you forgot your keys happens for a reason and is controlled by a group
It's not a bad film and Damon and Blunt are both good in it and have good chemistry together, the movie just didn't have something to keep it exciting.
This is ok and an enjoyable flick, was expecting a bit when ia heard all these action stars were getting together, some good action but story is not great and a bit slow to get going.Most will prob enjoy the nostalgia but not as good as the action flicks of the 80's Rambo, Commando etc.hopefully the sequel story will be better.Leave brian at door and you'll enjoy.
This is a very enjoyable summerblockbuster plenty of action and will take you back (for the older viewers) to when you used to watch The A Team on Saturday evenings in the 80's. The pace is good and the chemistry between the new A team is good, well worth a look and does what it says on the tin, bring on part 2 and 80's style montage of building a tank outa the contents of a warehouse.
Great movie well worth a look on the big screen, a few good action scenes but not enough whiplash though and slowed a bit in the middle.Plenty of nods to other marvel characters,roll on the Avengers.
