(au) wrote: For 90% of this film I would have said absolutely yes. Unfortunately, the other 10% (and you've guessed it, it's the ending) is a ridiculous example of writers trying to be too clever with twists. Imagine sitting through two M. Night Shyamalan style twists, each more damaging to the previous 80 minutes than the last, in the space of the final three minutes.Up to this point I had greatly enjoyed Brake. I've never really noticed Dorff in any films I've seen him in before but here he is excellent as the hero in the box and gives his all to the performance as he is put through a series of physical and mental trials designed to make him give up the top secret info. Until the ending the plot is clever, fast paced and full of suspense and the writers use sensible plot devices to help move the narrative along without the audience just watching Jeremy wriggle around for 80 minutes. The direction (Gabe Torres) is also sharp and avoids too much darkness (like a car boot really would be !) by cleverly using the red illumination from the clock to create a tense mood in boot space. Also Brian Tyler provides the score and he doesn't disappoint as usual. Overall Brake has so many things going for it and is a surprisingly taught thriller for those who enjoy this genre of thrillers, however it will also be damaged by the unnecessary and frankly bonkers ending.

(mx) wrote: I admire the work of Zhang Yimou more than the work of any current living man or woman. Yet another beautiful creation by one of the greatest living filmmakers and cinematographers. Though not the greatest of his creations, it still towers with a perfect rating above 95% of the Crap America pulls out of its Colon (Hollywood)

(us) wrote: This movie shows how people can be so called "sports agents" and corrupt young athletes trying to go to college by luring them to "easy" money etc. A good cast of actors that feature Tupac Shakur and Leon both great actors...

(es) wrote: Teriffic ideas squandered by an inability to tell the story. This film cannot seem to grasp when or how to present ideas or story beats. Instead you are thrown into random moments from start to finish with no context or reason to care. Unfortunately, this is a case where the director's cut fails to do anything but shove in scenes that add nothing to the movie and extend already overlong beats.

It's something you wouldn't expect to see in an animated film and gives the movie self awareness and wit. Shia LaBeouf is really good too. I think he gives a lot if personality and likability to his roles, and I'm always happy to see him in a movie. Animation is great. This is top level stuff here people. Now what really Boggs the movie down is the story. By the end of the movie, it ends up sic coming to the same old chliches. I really wish the creativity that the c had been put a little more into the plot, because then we would have a real winner on our hands.

A lot of pilot perspective shots...all done with real planes of the era. I doubt a movie today could depict it so realistically without extensive use of CGI...and while it is a silent film (no human voices), there were very good sound effects of the battle sequences.
(gb) wrote: Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome (1985) ????Gloriously filmed third entry finds Max trapped into helping a band of "lost" kids to defeat sinister overlord of the world's most advanced city. Majorly underrated, perhaps the best of the MAD MAX films, this one minimizes action for more humanity and originality. Although Thunderdome sequence and final chase are unforgettable highlights.
