Deadfall - 8/10|
A superb thriller which follows two siblings after a casino heist, their subsequent separation and their reunion at a family's thanksgiving dinner.
This film has you pretty much gripped from the opening five minutes or so. The plot is decent is not entirely predictable. It has a superb cast and performances.
The separation of the siblings and the way the plot follows them both to their reunion is really well handled. Their choices and how they reach their ultimate destination sets itself up for a great finale.
There's something about the snow filled setting which adds something not only to the plot but the style of the film. It's superbly directed and shot.
One of those films that wouldn't be a disappointment as a Friday or Saturday night out at the flicks. Recommended.
Superman vs The Elite (Netflix US) - 8.5/10
Wasn't really too sure about this when I started watching. I though I'd give it 10 minutes and see if it was any good. A superb animation film which was much better than I expected. Perhaps it was having a character in there called Manchester Black and a mention of Heaton Park may have had something to do with me liking it so much. But no, not really.
Truth is, I though it was a superb story. Animation was really well done and the voice acting is great. Well, kind of. Just checked who did Manchester Black's voice and it's a UK actor Robin Atkin Downes. Probably making it sound more palatable for US audiences.
The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.
