16 Blocks Jack Moseley (Bruce Willis) is an aging, burned-out and booze-sodden New York cop shuffling remotely through his daily police duties. When Moseley is entrusted with transporting prisoner Eddie Bunker (Mos Def) the sixteen blocks uptown to the courthouse, he finds himself caught between a rock and a hard place. Eddie is the prime witness in an internal investigation into police corruption and a group of corrupt cops want him killed. Cornered by the dirty cops, who are led by Jack’s ex-partner (David Morse), Jack is given the chance to hand over Eddie and walk away, but he’s driven by some instinctive, long-buried moral courage and escapes with his prisoner. From there, Jack and Eddie must dodge the bad cops as well as the forces of justice who have been lead to believe Jack has run amok. This high-concept thriller has a simple and memorable premise (ala “Phone Booth”) but lacks the script ...

Firewall Jack Stanfield (Harrison Ford) is an executive responsible for the tight computerized security system for a group of Seattle banks. Just as Stanfield’s bank is bought in a merger with a huge conglomerate, his home is invaded and his family held hostage by a group of high-tech thugs lead by Cox (Paul Bettany). Using compact, portable surveillance technology, they keep Stanfield and his family closely monitored by audio and video, leaving them unable to make their situation known. They instruct Jack to go to work as usual and to obey all of Cox’s instructions. At the bank, Cox turns up, all smiles, pretending to be a business customer and has Jack take him on a tour of the bank’s secure computer vault room. In the computer room, Cox tells Jack to log into the computers and transfer $100 million dollars (in $10,000 increments taken from the 10,000 richest accounts) into an off-shore ...

Training Day Only a small handful of HD-DVDs have been released to date and it seems there is a fairly wide range of picture quality in the available titles.. Some of the films including “Apollo 13,” “GoodFellas” and “Full Metal Jacket” have a grainy, washed out look, however most of the films that have were filmed recently such as “Million Dollar Baby,” “The Last Samurai” and “Doom” have spectacular picture quality. “Training Day,” starring Denzel Washington (who won the Oscar for this) and Ethan Hawke is one of those films that falls right in the middle in terms of picture quality, having been created in 2001. The transfer to HD DVD, when viewed in 1080i resolution on my Toshiba HD DVD player, is very good however the colors are a tad muted, even on my ISF calibrated JVC H-DILA monitor. The film is an entertaining yet uneven foray into the world of ...

Swordfish At its heart, “Swordfish” is a caper, an action-packed thriller of theft told between the lines of good and evil involving cops and robbers. At one point Gabriel Shear (portrayed with easy flamboyant egotism by John Travolta) tells Stan Jobson (Hugh Jackson) about Houdini and the art of misdirection. The movie warns viewers fairly that not all is as it seems, but somehow the over-the-top action and tension masks those secrets until the final scenes are played out. HD Video Resolution: “Swordfish” is indicative of the HD DVDs that are being unleashed on the entertainment shelves. Packed with the extra pizzazz of true high-definition, the video quality of the movie is nothing less than amazing. The slo-mo detonation of the walking Claymore mines in Chapter 2 demonstrates the explosive nature of the HD video format. In Chapter 4, the red dress worn by Ginger (Halle Berry) when she meets Stan (Jackman) for the ...
