x2-x-men-united-2003-movie-6

SYNOPSIS: The X-Men band together to find a mutant assassin who has made an attempt on the President’s life, while the Mutant Academy is attacked by military forces. REVIEW: Coming off the highly successful debut X-men release (I actually paid to see it in the theatres 3X), arrives this worthy and rather visually exiting follow up X2. You might even say a franchise knows it will draw in crowds when it can minimize its title … Continue reading

Film Review: Swordfish (2001)

Swordfish-2001-Movie-8

SYNOPSIS: A secretive renegade counter-terrorist co-opts the world’s greatest hacker (who is trying to stay clean) to steal billions in US Government dirty money. REVIEW: Easily one of John Travolta’s greatest roles, “Swordfish” is a collective of great talent, cinematography, script and slick acting. That memorable opening with the Tarantino-like monolog which quickly moves into a hostage-bomb segment ending badly to the glory of some really cool visual FX. “Swordfish” was alot of things to … Continue reading

SYNOPSIS: Two mutants come to a private academy for their kind whose resident superhero team must oppose a terrorist organization with similar powers. REVIEW: With the arrival of the “X-men” onto screen came a wave of hero-focused films. However it’s seeing the X-men on the big screen that was the defining moment for me.
