Review: Riddick

Riddick1

Left for dead on a sun-scorched planet, Riddick finds himself up against an alien race of predators. Activating an emergency beacon alerts two ships: one carrying a new breed of mercenary, the other captained by a man from Riddick’s past.

Riddick2

Going back to the original Riddick, this is similar to the first movie Pitch Black. It’s Riddick versus the monsters and only with his skills are they able to survive, and no mercenary group or two can even think to take him on. I enjoyed the way it played out and as usual Vin Diesel is a bad ass in this movie. If you loved Pitch Black you will love this movie.

Review: Fast & Furious 6

FF61

Hobbs has Dom and Brian reassemble their crew in order to take down a mastermind who commands an organization of mercenary drivers across 12 countries. Payment? Full pardons for them all.

FF62

I hope they never stop making these movies at the rate they are going. And adding Dwayne Johnson to the mix was the perfect ingredient to make this franchise even better, its rare that a Franchise even lasts this long and becomes this successful but Justin Lin is doing something right with the crew that he has. This time around its a bit different then Rio and the action is even more insane, I don’t want to ruin it for anyone but it is intense and the story is fantastic and the combination of Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson working together is fantastic. And I love the combination of comedy and action that this group of actors bring to the table, and the action is nonstop, some machine is always going fast, and something is always exploding with a pretty good story line. I loved it and I’m hoping for an FF7, but watch it until the end you are in for a surprise.

Fast & Furious 6 – Trailer

Agent Hobbs enlists the aid of Dom and team to help bring a rival gang, led by Owen Shaw, to justice. In exchange for clear records, they must put an end to their schemes, no matter how personal the cost.

I can NEVER get tired of a Fast & Furious movie, and they just keep making it better. Loved the First One, then Tokyo Drift became my favorite, and then they got very serious with Fast Five and it was bad ass, and now Fast & Furious 6 looks to top Fast Five with the crazy action and driving scenes and bring the story around. I love that they keep bring it back, I love these movies, after watching any of them I think that I am a get away driver who can do anything, just watching the trailer gets me pumped up.

Review: Fast Five

Former cop Brian O’Conner partners with ex-con Dom Toretto on the opposite side of the law. Since Brian and Mia Toretto broke Dom out of custody, they’ve blown across many borders to elude authorities. Now backed into a corner in Rio de Janeiro, they must pull one last job in order to gain their freedom. As they assemble their elite team of top racers, the unlikely allies know their only shot of getting out for good means confronting the corrupt businessman who wants them dead. But he’s not the only one on their tail. Hard-nosed federal agent Luke Hobbs never misses his target. When he is assigned to track down Dom and Brian, he and his strike team launch an all-out assault to capture them. But as his men tear through Brazil, Hobbs learns he can’t separate the good guys from the bad. Now, he must rely on his instincts to corner his prey… before someone else runs them down first.

Who believes the first movie came out over 10 years ago now, they have kept on going and they are all 10 years older now. I have always been a fan of the Fast & Furious, but this one just went over the top. Its always been about the cars and the chase, and then they started developing the story around Tereto and O’Conner and this is probably the best made Fast & Furious out of all of them, an amazing story with cars thrown into the mix. The introduction of Dwayne Johnson as Hops, the DEA’s primary hunter, is one hell of an exciting mix. They went crazy all over brazil, guns flying, destruction on the road, and a great story. If you haven’t seen this movie then you should watch it, I just saw it and I want to watch it again, it got my blood pumping. Keep watching until after the credits you will see something interesting and I know I will be looking forward to the next movie, and I’m getting this on Blu-Ray to add to the media collection.

Review: Fast & Furious

This movie has been worth the wait, and bringing Paul Walker and Vin Diesel back was the perfect choice. This is the fourth iteration of this movie franchise, the first one made a huge splash but this one is the best of the pack. A great story line, amazing driving and action packed car chases, with some great characters. You are kept at the edge of your seat through out the movie, I don’t want to ruin it for anyone but if you have any inclination towards cars, then you should really go see this movie, it is not to be missed.

Review: Babylon A.D.

The world has fallen apart and it is the post apocalyptic world. Thoorop (Vin Diesel) is a mercenary for hire and he is good at what he does, he is hired to transport a girl from Russia to America and he doesn’t know whats in store for him. I thought it was going to be an action packed Sci-fi but turned out to be a little bit more confusing then that. It seems when they translated the book into a movie script they left out a few parts from the storyline to keep it short, and that is what is confusing. The plot just doesn’t add up together even for a serious action movie. I just expected to be a lot better then it was, it was still enjoyable but not what I was expecting.
