This is my first entry into critiquing/reviewing movies so I might make it a regular thing.
First is 'Looper' and having seen a trailer it looked promising however in my opinion it wasn't all it was cracked up to be although it could have been my mood but my wife and our friend the Duchess all came to the same conclusion.
The first thing you would notice is the weird face lift vibe you get from Joseph Gordon Levitt. I found out later than this was a special effect added digitally to every shot to make him look more like Bruce Willis who play himself 30 years in the future. I've no idea who signed the design off but they must have been blind as it made him look nothing like old Brucey baby.
The film was ok in parts and lagged in others but I couldn't help but think I'd seen it all before in better films, Terminator, Xmen spring to mind.
All in all I was disappointed which was a shame as I was really looking forward to it.
Next up was 'Taken 2'. Having seen the first film and loved it I was excited about the sequel however I couldn't quite believe they made it.
From the get go I thought there was no way it could be as good as the first and I was right although it did exactly what it said on the tin. It provided thrills and spills, some good car chases, explosions and gunfights not to mention some smacking hand to hand combat.
Mr Nesson did look tired and after one fight scene cliched himself by saying just that.
I did have a good time watching it made all the better by gaining entry for free, see ticket above, by just letting it wash over me.
Stay tuned for some more reviews soon.......
