All The Money In The World Trailer


Jean Paul Getty (Kevin Spacey) may have been the richest man of his time, but in 1973 he proved how he was also one of the most frugal. So much so, in fact, that while most parents and grandparents would give anything in the world to see the safe return of their child or grandchild after a kidnapping, he point blank refused to pay the $17 million that was demanded of him by an organised crime ring who abducted and tortured his 16-year-old grandson, John Paul Getty III (Charlie Plummer). No matter how much the teen's mother Gail Harris (Michelle Williams) begged the billionaire to pay the ransom, he wouldn't budge, citing that his willingness to pay up would encourage the kidnapping of his other grandchildren.

Things started to get serious when John Paul's ear arrived in the post with the threat that the boy would be posted to them piece by piece if the ransom was not paid. Gail decided to join forces with one of Jean Paul's closest associates, former CIA operative Fletcher Chase (Mark Wahlberg), who agreed to help her bring her son back home and get his client to change his mind about paying up. 

'All the Money in the World' is the true story of an oil tycoon and his unusual reaction to seeing his grandson kidnapped. Kevin Spacey is unrecognisable with his Jean Paul Getty prosthesis. The film has been directed by the Academy Award nominated Ridley Scott ('Alien', 'The Martian', 'Blade Runner') and written by David Scarpa ('The Day the Earth Stood Still', 'The Last Castle') who adapted the screenplay from the book 'Painfully Rich: The Outrageous Fortunes and Misfortunes of the Heirs of J. Paul Getty' by John Pearson.

Salvatore Di Vita is an Italian film director who has nursed a passion for film ever since he was a boy. As a youngster, he learned how to operate the projector at the movie house Cinema Paradiso from the paternal projectionist at the time, Alfredo. As time went on, he continued to spent every free moment there before meeting a girl, Elena, who he fell in love with. As the stars would have it, however, they were torn apart and Salvatore left his hometown to pursue his lifelong film ambition elsewhere. Having not had contact with Alfredo for several years, he hears news of his death and subsequently discovers a priceless gift left to him by Alfredo.

Once Upon A Time In Mexico Review


Weak

"Desperado," the second eye-poppingly stylish and unabashedly outlandish B-movie in Robert Rodriguez's "El Mariachi" shoot-'em-up trilogy, is one of my all-time favorite action movies, in part because it has its priorities straight: The plot was simple -- a nameless mariachi avenges his girlfriend's murder with a guitar case full of semi-automatic weapons and an endless supply of ammunition -- and the action was non-stop and over-the-top.

Antonio Banderas cut an imposing, mysterious, hell-bent, dangerous and dead sexy figure in his long hair, implacable glower and black suede bandito get-up -- complete with jangling spurs -- as he performed a limber slow-motion ballet of body-twisting, two-fisted gunfire while dodging hails of bullets from evil drug-runners. And all this was set to a steamy, dynamic south-of-the-border score by the great guitaristas of Los Lobos.

But in the new installment, "Once Upon a Time in Mexico," writer-director-editor-composer Rodriguez pollutes the action -- which is uncharacteristically erratic, incongruous and over-edited -- with a needlessly convoluted plot involving 1) a thorny coup attempt against the Mexican president backed by a cartel kingpin (Willem Dafoe) and his turncoat henchman (Mickey Rourke), 2) a crooked and borderline-loco CIA agent (Johnny Depp) playing both sides against the middle, 3) a former FBI agent (Ruben Blades) frustrated with not nailing the kingpin before his retirement, 4) a curvaceous, gung-ho greenhorn federale (Eva Mendez) with ulterior motives, and 5) yet another murder, played out in fantasized-action flashbacks, that the mariachi is out to avenge.
