Lucy – 2014

A woman, accidentally caught in a dark deal, turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic.

The concept of human brain develpment turned into a movie has been done a few times, but with the voice of Morgan Freeman and the acting and action capabilities of Scarlett Johansson it is bound to be a potent formula. It’s a movie that pulls you in and your on one hell of thrill ride as Scarlett Johansson turns from a ditzy club goer to a merciless warrior with super human capabilities. The action scenes are great and she kicks ass in them, and then there is her cold demeanor which she pulls off effortlessly. Loved the pace of the movie and the story, but then it just gets a little too weird and science-eee at the end. The conclusion should have been a bit less time travel and more ridiculous action, still a fun movie to watch.

 

Review: Oblivion

Oblivion1

A veteran assigned to extract Earth’s remaining resources begins to question what he knows about his mission and himself.

Oblivion2

I was very excited to see this movie, I know that sometimes movies ride on their stars but this SciFi movie looked legit with Tom Cruise and especially with Morgan Freeman. If you haven’t seen it don’t waste your time, the movie trys to be a complex science fiction movie but ends up going in way too many directions and there are too many holes in the storyline. I don’t even know why Morgan Freeman was in the movie, it was doing very well but then things went wrong in too many directions and honestly I got so bored and couldn’t believe I was so excited to see it.

Review: Olympus Has Fallen

OlympusHF1

Disgraced former Presidential guard Mike Banning finds himself trapped inside the White House in the wake of a terrorist attack; using his inside knowledge, Banning works with national security to rescue the President from his kidnappers.

OlympusHF2

I loved this movie and Gerard Butler played a Bad Ass Secret Service guy kicking ass throughout the movie while having some funny lines. I honestly wasn’t expecting this movie to be that good, but it was, it went beyond my expectations, if the White House was ever stormed this is how it would happen, and I didn’t even know the white house had anti-air Missiles on the roof, that’s just ridiculous and there are certain parts of movie where you know the bad guys have been planning this for years and I loved it. One man versus a whole bunch of bad guys with a good story and a lot of governmental detail, and it doesn’t hurt to have Morgan Freeman as part of the cast. If you want a good action movie then this is it, I don’t want to ruin the movie with spoilers but I walked out of the movie with my blood pumping, lots of fun.

Review: RED – Retired & Extremely Dangerous

When his idyllic life is threatened by a high-tech assassin, former black-ops agent Frank Moses reassembles his old team in a last ditch effort to survive. They must use all of their collective cunning, experience and teamwork to stay one step ahead of their deadly pursuers and stay alive.

I wasn’t expecting the movie to be this good, it turned out to be even better then expected. Packing a long list of A-List actors; Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, Mary-Louise Parker (From the show Weeds), John Malkovich, Helen Mirren, Morgan Freeman, Karl Urban, and Brian Cox (Bad Guy from XMen2). This movie was a great combination of action and comedy, Bruce Willis played the cool spy while Malkovich played the insane guy who wants to shoot and blow things up, I really loved Malkovich’s character in this movie, he was the perfect comic relief. All the actors complemented each other and Mary-Louise Parker played the Willis’s clueless love intrest perfectly, they all fit their characters and came together perfectly. If you are looking for a good action film with a touch of comedy then this is on your list.
