The Great Wall (2016) – Review

A pair of European mercenaries suddenly find themselves imprisoned within The Great Wall of China, before encountering a secret army that defends and maintains the wall against a horde of horrific creatures, known only as the Tao Tei. William (Matt Damon), one of the mercenaries, must begin his journey toward heroism by joining the huge army of elite Chinese warriors, to confront and conquer, this seemingly unstoppable force. A surprisingly entertaining flick, despite a lot of undeserved backlash upon its original release in 2016.

Blood Red Sky (2021) – Review

A group of armed and dangerous terrorists hijack a transatlantic plane heading to the United States from Europe, but unbeknownst to them, a woman suffering from a mysterious illness is also on the flight and is quickly called into action to try and prevent the deaths of everyone onboard. Not the worst way to spend an evening, especially considering some of the newer material released lately on our streaming services. It’s also worth noting that Blood Red Sky is currently available to watch on Netflix.

The Tomorrow War (2021) – Review

The entire world is in disbelief and pure shock, after a small group of time travellers arrive from the near future and alert people to the fact that mankind is losing a global war against an unknown, yet deadly, alien species. Their only hope is to rely on everyday civilians to fight in the future and hopefully triumph against the evil that has been inflicted on the planet. An interestingly unique story that has a fairly long runtime, but at the same time is more than worthy of a watch. The Tomorrow War is currently streaming on Amazon Prime Video.

The Ice Road (2021) – Review

When the remote Katka diamond mine, collapses in the northern regions of Canada, a skilled ice truck driver called Mike (Liam Neeson), along with a small team, front a near impossible rescue mission over the dangerous and frozen ocean, to deliver the necessary equipment to save the lives of the trapped miners. Along the way, the crew face some unexpected problems, along with some predictable ones too. It’s worth noting that The Ice Road was recently released on Amazon Prime Video, and probably isn’t the worst release of 2021, but at the same time, it certainly isn’t the best.

Sicario 1 (2015) – Review

Kate Macer (Emily Blunt), a young and somewhat inexperienced FBI Agent is recruited onto a covert government task force, which has been formed to assist in the escalating war against drugs on the border between the United States and Mexico. Given very little information about the methods and eventual targets of the task force, she soon comes to the realisation that their means of doing things are extremely unorthodox. A widely favoured film that was originally released in 2015 and landed a sequel not long after that.

Apocalypto (2006) – Review

Set around the time of Mayan civilisation, a young man’s journey is followed after his peaceful tribe is forcefully attacked by strangers, who were seeking slaves and a large amount of people for human sacrifice. Jaguar Paw (Rudy Youngblood) hides his wife and young son in a deep cave nearby, before being captured himself. He must then fight to survive and return to save his family. A massively successful Mel Gibson picture that centers around a subject that many filmmakers would try to avoid.

Tenet (2020) – Review

John David Washington stars as a secret agent recruited by a mysterious organisation called Tenet, weaving his way through a twilight world of international crime on a mission to prevent Andrei Sator (Kenneth Branagh) starting World War 3, thus changing the course of humanity. An unbelievably hyped movie that has finally hit the big screens over the past week or two, but a complex one that definitely requires a second viewing to be fully appreciated.

Project Power (2020) – Review

On the streets of New Orleans, Louisiana, a pill that gives its taker unpredictable superpowers for five minutes begins circulating. Upon this happening, a local cop must team up with a teenage dealer and former soldier, fuelled with a personal vendetta to take down the group responsible for its creation and circulation. Another pretty impressive Netflix production that’s easy on the eye and spectacular to watch in patches, but perhaps lacks any real substance to warrant a second viewing anytime soon. Project Power is now streaming on Netflix.
