DARC (2018) MOVIE REVIEW - Action Thriller

DARC (2018) – Review – an ultra-violent gangster drama

June 3, 2018

I was looking for some Liam Neeson kind of slick action thriller and got this ultra-violent crime thriller DARC, now streaming on Netflix. Director Julius R. Nasso brings this action-packed, blood soaked revenge crime thriller that goes with the likes of Taken film series or Keanu Reeves starrer John Wick series. DARC is actually dark […]

Movie Review: AKIRA

September 21, 2016

I watched AKIRA in theatre some two weeks back and since then I’ve been trying to find some time to write about this.

Nonetheless, Drive Angry is one classy action flick like those of the Ghost Rider that doesn’t waste much of your time and takes you into a 1 hr. 44 min ride with guns, gore, tits and unending violence.    […]

Lockout (2012) – a laughable video-game sci-fi flick

October 30, 2012

Directed by James Mather and Stephen St. Leger, Lockout is nothing more than a video game-esque sci-fi flick with no worth whatsoever. In this film, if there is one thing that I want to reveal straightway is the laughable yet entertaining performance by Guy Pierce, who unsuccessfully tried to save the film from slick dialogues […]
