Mira Mohd S (it) wrote: Michael Jai White is one of the best action stars out there and is still under-utilized. It's just a shame that he doesn't necessarily have the best movies as most of them are mainly B grade or direct to DVD kind of stuff, & I usually don't check out such stuff, but this film somehow sold me with an action packed trailer. From all aspects, this is 1st installment of the "Code Name : Falcon" series is a B picture - low budget, predictable plot, second tier actors, with the exception of a popular leading star, yet a generic star at the very best. It's a straightforward vengeance tale with no other ambition than to entertain, and entertain it does in copious amounts along with indulging us with a tough-as-nails leading action hero to root for till the very end. The story is pretty simple, White's character, a muscled wedge of a man with a bad case of post-traumatic stress disorder from his service in Iraq, to the slums of Sao Paulo, Brazil, where his social worker sister (Laila Ali, Muhammad Ali's daughter) has been beaten and left for dead by unsavory characters. Falcon flies to Rio, calling in help from an old war buddy (Neal McDonough) who works there in the U.S. consulate. Chapman is thrust into the chaotic and colorful atmosphere of the sprawling favela (slums) in Sau Palo, where Falcon begins his own investigation into his sister's attack, asking uncomfortable questions around, and uncovering a corrupt in the city's seedy underbelly that includes a world of drugs, the sex trade, corrupt cops, and organized crime syndicates battling for control. Just like the 80s action films, with strong men at the center going up alone against an unambiguously evil foe - a Japanese Yakuza outfit in this case. In colorful Brazilian surroundings, White's character, a deadly martial artist, brings acres of pain to legions of unsavory characters. While this movie started off slowly, the second half was very entertaining and worth it. Predictable story but who cares, it's all about the style for this movie. If you think too hard you'll start noticing flaws and soon you'll picking apart the film. The film is cheesy, but thankfully it knows that is. The humor can be off at times and the dramatic tones can come off as soap opera like. The dialogue can be a little so-so at times and the action sequences are, for most part, watchable. Even if the sound effects are a bit odd. The acting is okay at times and the pacing can be a bit of a drag, the characters can be cliched and cartoon like at times but for the most part you know their role in the film. The fight scenes featured in the movie are top-notch, performed wonderfully by MJW. His movements and fluidity for a man his size is always great to watch. It's a thrill to watch him dispatch several attackers at once with brutal efficiency. Fans of fancy flying kicks will love this stuff. His character is strong and entertaining to watch. On the whole, Falcon Rising is an entertaining film with a thrilling physical performance from its star - Michael Jai White & welcome throwback to 1980s action films.

Magic Mike is a comedy/drama film that was written in 2012 and directed by Steven Soderbergh. Don't get me wrong, myself plus a lot of women would like to see Channing Tatum shirtless but overall it was a poor movie all around.This film is about a so-called entrepreneur, Mike, who makes a living by stripping. He has a day job, roofing houses, but he isn't making as much money as he would like to so he strips. Mike genuinely does want to change his life around but cannot seem to leave behind his stripping days and doesn't want to live without that security blanket of money. Throughout the movie, Mike mentors a young 19-year-old, Adam, and eventually has a fling with Adam's overprotective sister, Brooke. Soderbergh decided that he couldn't have a movie just made up of stripping so he decided to squeeze a love story in-between all the erotic dancing. The viewers then saw the movie as a "romance" and totally disregarded the pointlessness of this movie. This so-called love affair didn't make the movie better but just added an unbelievable love story and made it more of a mess than it already is. The movie has no main plot and everything is all over the place. The movie plain and simple was just the newest film that emphasized stripping and drew in women as the audience through the sex appeal of the movie. Some critics say that this movie was supposed to reflect upon Channing Tatum's life before he got to be the actor that he is now but the movie was still irrelevant and there are better ways to reflect on someone's life other than an exotic film. Another problem that I must address is it is hard to believe that Mike is conservative with his money. The audience is supposed to have the impression that Mike is wealthy and doesn't like to spend money the director puts things in the movie that contradict that. He has Mike driving a brand-new truck and living in this fancy apartment. Mike is seen as the one who likes to party in the movie and is always buying drinks for everyone and spending his money. This doesn't emphasize that he is conservative with his money but shows that he is reckless with it. One more criticism I would have to give this film would be that the actors and actresses have no emotions into the characters they are playing. You cannot feel the character's feelings and emotions that you should. Brooke is played by Cody Horn and she would have to be the worst one in the film. She doesn't seem to care about anything throughout the movie and she seems confused about everything. Her character as no body and has no passion. The plot confusion, irrelevance, and poor acting were three main elements that contributed to making this film one of the worst ones out there. Definitely not a valid movie that was worth the time to see and was quite a disappointment.
Charles M (ca) wrote: This is a cult flick that makes fun of stuff from the seventies thru the early eighties, New Agism, drugs, free love, EST, psychotherapy through drugs, cults (Moonies) and gay motorcycle gangs. The plot takes place in Marin County just north of San Francisco. This movie is fun!
Fekisha G (mx) wrote: This movie was completely a "made-for-fun" movie indicative of the "fun Seventies" rolling right into the "lose yourself-Eighties". The plot sucks, the acting sucks and the clothes are dreadful, but I will watch this movie every single time it comes on television...even though I own the DVD! It's absolutely a guilty pleasure that reminds me of my carefree younger days in the roller rink! Ahhhh, to be 6 years old again! ;-)
Ben L (ag) wrote: The level of joy that exudes from every frame of this film is off the charts. I am simply amazed by how much it made me smile basically from start to finish. One of the best aspects was how self-aware the entire film appeared to be. In every way they knew that the whole thing was a little silly, and so they just had fun with it. The actors were great at handling all the tongue-in-cheek moments while still keeping the story somewhat honest and heartfelt. I wish they had put less focus on Travolta, because they were clearly trying to make a big deal out of "man dressed as woman" even though the story of Tracy's mom is much less compelling (especially considering all the other stuff going on.) The surprise for me in this movie was the focus on integration, simply because I never knew that was a theme this musical tackled. The movie didn't seem disrespectful to the topic, even though it was handled in an over-the-top way. Also it made a nice parallel story for someone like Tracy who struggles with a form of discrimination because of her size. The songs are very fun, and had me tapping my toes and humming along. In fact, when the film ended I still had the songs echoing in my head and felt like dancing. Hairspray is not a masterpiece of cinema, it's not one of the great musicals, but something about the infectious happiness of it all grabbed me. I honestly can't wait to watch it again.

Ryan A (ca) wrote: What I got to say about "Boys Don't Cry" is one powerful true story ever told. "It's heartbreaking, very intense, jaw dropping and brutal of a movie." The performance by the cast is well acted. "Hilary Swank will blow you right away, the way she delivered her performance to receive her first Oscar nomination and Oscar in the same year. Meanwhile, Chlo Sevigny is outstanding." The directing by Kimberly Peirce is really mind blowing. The screenplay by Andy Bienen and Kimberly Peirce co-written is good. The cinematography is good. The score by Nathan Larson is good. Finally, the effects are good as well. "I have to report that "Boys Don't Cry" is a movie that is so emotional and raw to come out in the year 1999!"
