Bethlehem tells the story of the unlikely bond between Razi, an Israeli secret service officer, and his Palestinian informant Sanfur, the younger brother of a senior Palestinian militant. Razi recruited Sanfur when he was just 15, and developed a very close, almost fatherly relationship to him. Now 17, Sanfur tries to navigate between Razi’s demands and his loyalty to his brother, living a double life and lying to both men. Co-written by director Yuval Adler and Ali Waked—an Arab journalist who spent years in the West Bank—Bethlehem gives an unparalleled, moving and authentic portrait of the complex reality behind the news.

(br) wrote: Such a waste of money.
(au) wrote: It has a well written story, but it tries way too hard to be suspenseful. It adds twists and turns at unnecessary times. The characters have no emotion throughout the film. Zima is just really good at playing the stereotypical psycho bitch, other than that the characters are just kind of doing things.
(gb) wrote: You wouldn't imagine such an inspiring story to come about and to be made into such a beautiful movie. The First Grader had just the right amount of historical references, emotions, and melodrama. The screenplay was absolutely impeccable and the actors played their roles well. The only problem I had was with the length. The emotion was present, but it wasn't long enough for me to experience it all. Wonderful movie nevertheless.

(br) wrote: I can admit i had lower expectations for this one, after seeing the reviews and trailer. It did better than I thought, but still not great, and is my least favourite film of the franchise. The whole gang thing didn't go well with me, although it is a major factor to the plot. The drug lords, the fights between them and the cops and all, for whatever reason didn't go well for me, even though it's a topic I usually like. The acting isn't anything special, with Bill Paxton probably being the best character, but like usual he doesn't last the film. Danny Glover simply doesn't fill in Arnold Shwarzeneggers shoes, instead of being a ripped killer, he's a older veteran cop, which is yet again what the story needs, but not what it should be. Then the setting as the city could have been different all together, but again it's what we're stuck with. The predator is the same as before really, with a new look under the mask, but the same. Where it really shines is in it's CGI with although still not great is a vast improvement over the crap we see in the original. It's also far more gory, not in terms of the violence itself but in the aftermath we get to see. It also cuts right to the action and the predator, leaving little time for any real character or plot development. It's probably scarier too, not as tense as him being able to strike at any time in the jungle, but in him chasing down his victims. The ending is good, a last stand that ends predictably, until we are taken to the hidden underground ship, and them letting Danny go with him barely escaping in time before the ship took off. We see a brief reference to the Alien movies, with an alien skull in a trophy case on a wall of the ship along with a human skull, and dinosaur skull. Overall not an improvement at all, and it's mostly the location that screws everything else up. It's still a fun watch, but nothing special or all that impressive. Kinda ends up like the third instalment of the Alien movies.

It may not be as fun as Lone Wolf McQuade or as over the top as Invasion U.S.A. but, it is the closest to a mainstream movie he was ever in till the upcoming Expendables 2. Despite being a box office hit and a moderate critical hit as well, Chuck chose to then enter a multi-picture deal with shlock-meister Cannon films (probably the $17 million for 10 movies was key) and sank any chance of further mainstream theatrical success (None of his future films with Cannon would top Code's $20 million gross). Code of Silence is a simple story of honest cop Eddie Cusack (Norris) who is not only stuck in the middle of a war between Columbian and Italian mob families but, is the only cop willing to speak out against a corrupt and incompetent fellow officer. This makes Cusack an outsider to criminal and cop alike. Code is nothing new plot-wise but, is well paced and well directed by Andrew Davis who would go on to direct Seagal's best, Under Seige and The Harrison Ford starrer, The Fugative. Davis also gets a good performance out of the often wooden Norris and makes good use of the Chicago locations. The flick has a nice supporting cast including vets Henry Silva and Dennis Farina and Dark Knight's Ron Dean and the action scenes are well staged and entertaining. A bar fight scene in particular stands out as classic Chuck. All in all it's a solid action thriller and had Norris not been lured into staying with Cannon films, he might have had a more prolific movie career along side fellow ass-kickers Steven Seagal and Jean-Claude Van Damme whose movies did very well in the 80s and 90s.
