Kiss the Girls (1997) – Review

Alex Cross (Morgan Freeman), a Washington DC detective travels to North Carolina in hopes of investigating the kidnapping of a family member – before eventually unearthing something more sinister than just a single missing persons case. Assisted by an escaped kidnapee, Kate McTiernan (Ashley Judd), the pair attempt to take down the kidnapper, turned killer, who goes under the name “Casanova”. A good movie from 1997 that is currently streaming on Netflix.

El Camino (2019) – Review

Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) does a splendid job when returning in the well anticipated Breaking Bad movie.

An enjoyable and fitting tribute to the Jessie Pinkman character that is now streaming on Netflix.

An incredible true story of Richard Wershe Jr, the teenage gangster that became infamous for ultimately being sentenced to life in prison during the 1980’s, after getting engulfed in drug-trafficking. Richie Merritt, puts in a superb acting debut as Richard Wershe Jr – indicating that this will most definitely not be the last we’ll see of the young actor.

Edge of Fear (2018) – Review

A group of home invaders, spearheaded by Jack Pryor (Robert Patrick), end up in the middle of nowhere, tormenting and attempting to murder a married Chinese couple and their friend. An absolute must for any old-school Prison Break fan as Robert Knepper, Rockmond Dunbar, Amaury Nolasco and Jodi Lyn O’Keefe all re-unite for the low budget, 2018 release, Edge of Fear. If however, you were watching this after spotting it randomly on Netflix and expecting something rather special – you’ll be left bitterly disappointed.
