Rundown, The “The Rundown” is a surprisingly good film.  It is not a classic or oscar-worthy material, but it is good.  We never of think of The Rock as a good actor, but both “The Rundown” and “The Scorpion King” show he has true potential (“Doom” being the exception in his career).  The film is fast-paced and fun.  Sure, it is a summer blockbuster, but it has interesting qualities.  Audiences didn’t seem to agree though as it only grossed about $55 million worldwide, the making of the film incurred an $85 million expense. This film follows, Beck (The Rock), a bounty hunter that is hired by a father to go into the Amazon jungle and bring back his disgrace of a son, Travis (Seann William Scott).  Beck figures that it will be a quick pay day and agrees, somewhat reluctantly however.  ...

Eagle Eye "Eagle Eye" faired well at the box office, grossing $100 million in the U.S.  However, critics were very harsh on the film.  Audience members were much more forgiving.  I am stuck in the middle.  It definitely was not as bad as the critics make it out to be, but it just doesn't quite reach the blockbuster status given to it by moviegoers. The movie stars Shia LaBeouf as Jerry Shaw, a college-aged kid that is sucked into the middle of a high-tech assassination plot.  By his side, also sucked into the plot is Rachel Holloman (Michelle Monaghan).  Believing that Jerry is part of a terrorist plot, FBI agent Thomas Morgan spends his time trying to track him and the girl down after they escape federal custody. Jerry and Rachel are led around by someone, or something that is able to track their ...

Mummy, The: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor The O'Connells are back in the third installment of "The Mummy" series.  The outcome: a typical second sequel caliber story with better visual effects.  In 1999, the first Mummy film captured audiences, and in 2001 its sequel faltered a bit, succeeding mainly in home video sales.  This third installment was essentially a flop at the box-office, but has promising potential in the home video market. "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor" is an action thriller that unfortunately lacks the wit and story of the first two films.  The first mistake is changing locations from Egypt to China.  At this point it no longer becomes a mummy film but simply a tale of a legend arisen from a curse.  It would be like calling "The Scorpion King," "The Mummy: The Scorpion King." Jet Li plays Emperor Han, an evil dictator that built ...

Wanted "Wanted" is a high action thriller that didn't get a lot of attention during its brief run in theaters.  That is unfortunate as the film is fairly original and actually contains a decent plot – for an action film that is.  Luckily, the film has been given all-star treatment from Universal on this Blu-ray edition. "Wanted" is the high-octane action film that has been long for since "The Matrix."  Combine "The Matrix" with "Ultraviolet" and "Hitman" and what you have is "Wanted."  Angelina Jolie and James McAvoy light up the screen.  Angelina Jolie fits perfectly in the role as Fox, a deadly assassin in a 1,000 year-old society known as "The Fraternity."  After her role as Lara Croft, Jolie is right at home in this film.  Newcomer James McAvoy plays Wesley Gibson, a mild-mannered accountant that hates his day job and ...

Speed Racer The Wachowski’s first film after the Matrix trilogy was a costly ($120 million dollar) box office disappointment, but it’s vivid and imaginative design work, should find admirers in animation and CGI buffs, and it’s general air of family-friendly silliness, should make it popular with younger audiences.  The Racer family is an earnest, upright bunch, dedicated to auto racing, in support of their accomplished son, Rex (Scott Porter).  Rex leaves the family for the big leagues and is thereafter plagued by rumors implying that he’s corrupt and in league with criminal forces.  During a cross-country race, Rex’s car loses control in a cave, crashes, and explodes in flames.  Years later, Rex’s younger brother, Speed (Emile Hirsch), who idolized Rex, has developed into a top racecar driver, whose skills clearly surpass those of his brother, whose memory he still honors.  In an ...
