Movie Review: JOHN WICK

John Wick
Seen on Redbox
Rating: Four Very Bloody Fangs

I truly enjoyed this film. It was a little slow at the start, but this pace of story telling builds the story up and places you firmly on John Wick's side. once the story got going I couldn't wait to see what Wick was going to do to his enemies.

The action was incredible and believable. The Gun-Fu performed by Keanu reminded me of John Woo Films and Equilibrium. The hitman back story and world building were easy to pick up on. They spend just enough time on it for most to just "get it."

For a great ride, and a great time, I do recommend you watch this film. Sit back and watch the carnage. I am looking forward to a sequel, but like most movies I fear a second movie won't have the depth and emotional pull that this once did. If the writers go the route like the Bourne films did I am sure they can achieve several more hits.

Go rent it now, or pick it up on CD or Blue-ray, it's definitively worth owning.

Game Time: Castle Crashers

I picked up this game from The Xbox Marketplace for $14.99. I was looking for a multi player game simple enough for me and my 8 year old daughter to play.

This game is awesome! a simple side scroller beat em up game with many re-play options and unlockables for hours and hours of Daddy Daughter time.


Movie Review: LUCY

Seen on: Red Box
Rating: 1 Fang

Where do I start? This movie was especially disappointing for me. I am a fan of Luc Bessom and look forward to everything and anything that he has a hand in. This is now the 2nd moving in a row that has left me less than Bessomed. I sat thru Three days to Kill and wondered what happened, but even that movie was leaps and bounds better than LUCY.

The movie starts of slow and starts to job a little and gain speed, but never achieves that heart-pounding pace I have come to expect from his films. It felt like he was trying to branch out into a sci-fi psychological thriller, but failed miserably. The acting was droll, the action was laughable, the car chase scene was amusing, but even for a Luc Bessom film, too many cars inexplicable flipped over for no reason other than "let's flip that car".

The entire plot was sound, but the conclusion to the story left me unfulfilled.  I was left just wondering, "Was that it?" I do not recommend this movie to anyone. There were some good points and the concept for the film was intriguing, but it simply did not pack enough of a punch to make me not feel like I had wasted 90 minutes of my life. Skip it.
