The Circle Trailer


Mae Holland (Emma Watson) is an ambitious young woman who lands a job at one of the most advanced technology corporations in the world led by the charismatic Bailey (Tom Hanks). The Circle is a company like no other, developing state of the art social and scientific technology such as cameras that allow a person's entire life to be streamed online, medicine that can cure almost anything, and tracking that can capture any criminal. The Circle's main opinion is that secrets are bad, privacy is not something that should be desired and all information should be freely available to all, but for a company who puts across such a message, its entire founding is shrouded in mystery. This lack of privacy idea is becoming an increasingly worrying prospect for Mae's mysterious colleague Kalden (John Boyega), who warns her of the implications of this new thought. But will she come to realise this before she sinks deeper into the company? Or will it be too late?

Parkland Review


OK

This starry drama has documentary realism going for it, although without a single well-developed character it never finds any resonance. By recounting JFK's assassination from a variety of previously unseen angles, we learn some new things about that fateful day in November 1963. Oddly, the script doesn't even focus on the hospital that gives the film its name. That might have helped give the film some focus.

We watch the shooting in Dallas through the eyes of Abraham Zapruder (Giamatti), famously the only person to capture the event on film. He is immediately contacted by a Secret Service agent (Thornton), who helps him process the film and make copies. Meanwhile at Parkland Hospital, two residents (Efron and Hanks) and a tenacious nurse (Harden) are working against the odds to save Kennedy's life. And elsewhere, an FBI agent (Livingston) is following the trail of the shooter, whose brother and mother (Dale and Weaver) have very different reactions to what has just happened.

Writer-director Landesman jumps straight into the events without properly establishing the characters. But it's impossible to feel emotion when we don't know anything about the people we're watching, and we can't feel suspense when we know what's going to happen. So we're left to soak up the details, which are often fascinating (ever wonder how to get a coffin into a plane?). And while the actors are good enough to play the intensity of each scene for all it's worth, the only ones who register with us are Giamatti and Dale, because what their characters go through is more complex than we expect.

Jake Gyllenhaal Rene Russo Bill Paxton

2 Guns Review


Excellent

What looks like a rather standard buddy action comedy is elevated by a smarter-than-normal script, skilful direction and surprisingly offhanded chemistry between Washington and Wahlberg. In addition to the usual action chaos, the film lets big issues gurgle under the surface while refusing to play it safe. For example, the villain here is the US government, rather than some cliched foreign nutcase.

It's set on the US-Mexico border, where smooth operator Bobby (Washington) is working with fast-talking Stig (Wahlberg) to make a deal with the drug kingpin Papi Greco (Olmos). When they decide to rob a local bank to get his attention, the whole situation blows up in their faces. Not only does it emerge that both are undercover federal agents (Bobby with the DEA and Stig with Navy Intelligence), but their bosses (Burke and Marsden, respectively) are unwilling to protect them. Even Bobby's colleague-girlfriend (Patton) can't really help. And now they're being chased by everyone, including Papi and a swaggering killer (Paxton) with connections to the CIA.

The rather crazy plot demands that we pay attention as each of these factions is brought into focus, and it's refreshing to see a big movie that never abandons its own internal logic. Everything does indeed fit together into a larger picture, and since Bobby and Stig are alone in trying to figure it out, we happily go with them. Washington and Wahlberg are having a lot of fun with these characters as they jostle against each other in various displays of messy bravado. Opposite them, Patton has a thankless sexy-female role, but Olmos is quietly fierce, and Paxton steals every scene as a cocky, sneering villain who leaves a trail of destruction in his wake.

'2 Guns' Failures To Fire Up Critics In Early Reviews


Denzel Washington Mark Wahlberg Paula Patton James Marsden Baltasar Kormakur Fred Ward Bill Paxton Edward James Olmos

2 Guns, starring Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg, is due to be released on US cinemas on 2nd August. The film sees a DEA agent and a naval intelligence officer forced to run following their failed attempt at infiltrating a drug cartel. The film has received less than favourable early critical reviews.

Many have described the action film as being cliché and lacking in a cohesive plot or particularly strong characters. Keith Uhlich of Time Out New York said the movie "quickly degenerates into boilerplate Hollywood sound and fury, complete with a climactic Mexican stand-off that revolves around a massive, burning pile of money".

Denzel Washington And Mark Wahlberg Team Up In '2 Guns' (Trailer)


Mark Wahlberg Denzel Washington Bill Paxton

Ok, so Denzel Washington's push for Oscar glory with 'Flight' didn't quite work out, but he's dusted himself down and got back in the saddle for '2 Guns' - a fairly standard though entertaining looking heist-action movie, also starring Mark Wahlberg. The famous duo play Marcus Stigman and Bobby Trench, two cops sent undercover by their respective departments to investigate separate drug organizations. They don't realise the other is also a cop, though soon figure it out after uncovering millions of dollars from a Mexican drug cartel.

The oddball pair realise they must work together to bring down the real criminals while they themselves are wanted dead or alive. The trailer hints at something half-decent with some nice touches of humor, though it's likely to be your average cop movie. Adapted from the graphic novel of the same name by director Baltasar Kormakur (Contraband) and screenwriter Blake Masters (Blake Masters), 2 Guns sees Wahlberg in familiar territory, though his recent output has been commercially successful despite not appealing to the critics.

2 Guns Trailer


Marcus Stigman and Bobby Trench have, for the last year, been working together as part of a drug organisation; however, neither knows the other's true identity as they have both been sent out undercover as part of their work as federal agents in separate organisations. Their attempt to uncover millions of dollars from a Mexican drug cartel goes badly wrong when the agents turn on each other revealing their true identities; Stig is a Naval Intelligence officer while Bobby is part of the Drug Enforcement Administration. They take the situation to their respective superiors and discover that they have both been set up with the money that they recovered not belonging to who they thought it did. They realise that they must work together to bring down the real criminals while they themselves are wanted dead or jailed.

Haywire Review


Excellent
It's hardly surprising that Soderbergh takes such a bracing approach to the action thriller genre. What makes this film stand out from the crowd is its insistence on making sure that the action is grounded in human physicality, internalised drama and the laws of gravity.

Mallory (Carano) is a former military operative who's now a private contractor.

After working with Aaron (Tatum) on a rather dodgy kidnap-rescue in Barcelona, her U.S. Government boss Kenneth (McGregor) sends her to Dublin on an assignment with British agent Paul (Fassbender). But things quickly get messy and, when she ends up on the run, she desperately grabs a passerby (Angarano) and tells him her tale while figuring out what to do. The only men she trusts are a political puppet-master (Douglas) and her ex-military guru dad (Paxton).

Titanic (1997) Review


Excellent
So here I am, newly engaged, and the subject of honeymoons comes up. I hate the sun, and I don't like flying, so naturally, I say: Cruise! How about Alaska? This is the best idea we've come up with so far... and then we go to see Titanic.

Well, I can't think of anything that would change my mind faster than the sight of 1500 ice-covered dead bodies, bobbing up and down in the ocean, after the sinking of a luxury liner. Let's jump right on the boat, huh?

U-571 Review


Good
It's finally time to reassess the submarine movie to see if it's outlived its useful life. I was skeptical enough when Crimson Tide came out in 1995, feeling like a knockoff of The Hunt for Red October, itself an homage to Das Boot, it something of an homage to Run Silent, Run Deep. They even made Down Periscope, which four years of therapy have not helped me to forget.

U-571 takes the Das Boot path, starring a dozen of the sweatiest men in Hollywood (the makeup department working overtime on this one), all led by everyone's favorite naked bongo player, Matthew McConaughey. Loosely based on real events, U-571 involves a WWII mission to capture a German Enigma encryption device from a sinking German submarine adrift in the middle of the Atlantic. Skipper Bill Paxton and his 2nd in charge McConaughey hop to the task, dressing up their wreck of a sub to look just like a German U-boat. One guy on the crew speaks German, so there shouldn't be a problem in posing as a rescue ship, right?

Vertical Limit Review


Terrible

With only the thinnest thread of a tether anchoring its mountain climbing action in reality, "Vertical Limit" takes suspension of disbelief to new extremes for a film that goes out of its way to seem credible.

Celebrated Everest-conqueror Ed Viesturs has a multiple-scene cameo in this adventure about a climber trying to rescue his sister from a huge crevasse near the top of K-2, the world's highest mountain.

But the stunts are so far-fetched you don't even have to own a pair of hiking boots to find them laughable. Even more hilarious, it's pathetically obvious that much of the movie was shot on a soundstage with cheap mountainside scrims in the background.

Spy Kids 3d: Game Over Review


Weak

Since the vast majority of the audience for "Spy Kid 3D: Game Over" has probably never seen a 3D movie with cheap, old-fashioned blue-and-red-lensed cardboard glasses, here's a three-point primer for proper enjoyment of any flick in this format:

1) Sit toward the middle of the theater. Because of the twin-image nature of 3D projection, the more off-center you are from the screen, the more you'll see eye-straining "ghosting" of images through your glasses instead of proper depth of field.

2) The left lens (red) always seems uncomfortably darker than the right (blue). Get used to it.
