Review: From Paris With Love

In Paris, a young employee in the office of the US Ambassador hooks up with an American spy looking to stop a terrorist attack in the city. Rhys Meyers plays the James Reece the secretary of the Ambassador also moonlighting as the helper of the special ops, doing odd jobs and their paper work. Until he is introduced to Wax (Travolta), a nut case with a gun who is given a mission to take care of and Reece is his partner on this machine. They go on to blow up places, shoot people, take drugs and Reece doesn’t have a clue whats going on. Travolta’s charisma with this character is fantastic, he is just as funny as he is insane, a bad guy who is doing the dirty work for the right reasons and dragging his partner along. An entertaining movie with a slightly more serious plot towards the end, but still fun.

Review: The Taking of Pelham 123

A New York city subway system is run by a control office with people making the routes. One day a man holds one train cart hostage with the people in it, asking for $10’000’000 from the city of New York. The unlucky man who gets the call at the station control is Walter Garber (Denzel Washington), this falls in his lap and the guy pulling this off likes him so sticks to him. This is one interesting movie, it isn’t all that it seems to be when you go through the movie. A smart movie about a desperate man who is willing to die, and one man who is desperate to save everybody. Ryder is played by John Travolta, and he plays the perfect villain, smart, dangerous, and a little bit of crazy, just the prefect combination to pull this off. A great movie and you will enjoy some of the supporting actors in it, action packed until the end, there was one scene with a motorcycle that even hurt me, you will know when you see it.
