Extraction

If you’re looking for a strong narrative to go along with kick-ass action, you’re not going to find it in Extraction, a direct-to-Netflix thriller that offers plenty of the latter but not a lot of the former. The movie provides little more...

Fast & Furious

Fast & Furious brings back the cast of the original The Fast and the Furious in a blatant attempt to reconnect with viewers who have drifted away over the course of two weak sequels. This represents the only time Vin Diesel and Paul Walker hav...

Fast Five

Ever since Justin Lin took control of The Fast and the Furious franchise with installment #3, he has pushed things in new and sometimes daring directions. With Fast Five, he not only melds balls-to-the-wall comic book action with heist movie dynam...

Fate of the Furious, The

What has been true for the past few Fast and Furious outings is even more true for this one: the films have devolved from street racing-centered action/crime thrillers into live action cartoons. Plot and character development are irrelevant. Ac...

Final Score

Saban Films is to action what Blumhouse is to horror. They buy low-to-mid budget productions and put them out into the marketplace (usually with a small theatrical release to complement a wider VOD footprint) with an eye toward a profit. Most ...

First Purge, The

I feel pretty safe saying The First Purge isn’t going to be a big hit with Donald Trump’s base. With a script that feels more like an anti-Administration screed than a fully fleshed out film, this movie is so overtly “progressive” as t...

For Your Eyes Only

With For Your Eyes Only, Roger Moore's fifth appearance as Bond and the twelfth entry in the long-running series, 007 enters the 1980s with a return to the "glory days" of the '60s. Realizing it would be tough to top the technical glitz of Moon...

From Russia with Love

From Russia with Love, along with its successor, Goldfinger, represents Bond at his best. Although the series has run for more than thirty years with seventeen "official" entries, it has yet to better, or even equal, what it achieved in 1963-19...

Good Day to Die Hard, A

One hot summer day in 1988, I emerged from a movie theater exhilarated by what I had just experienced. The film in question was the original Die Hard, one of the best thrillers of the decade and, one could argue, an all-time Top 10 entry for the ge...
