Review – 6 Days

6 Days, directed by Toa Fraser, lays out and builds its story well, while also keeping a constant level of tension running throughout. For what little time it has, the film is able to tell its story and develop its characters in a way that produces a reasonably full feeling experience that all ends up delivering on a memorable point in British history. Limitations don’t hold this film back, but they do produce a few snags that caused some issues. But do those issues irrevocably damage the film and lessen its watch-ability factor or is it fair to overlook them? Let’s rappel down into the review and find out. Read more

Review – Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Kingsman: The Golden Circle, directed by Matthew Vaughn, is a loud, crass, childish, empty film that by the end had me completely bored by everything it had to offer. This is the type of film where it tries to fill the screen with seemingly interesting or exciting content, but if you look at it closely (to be honest you don’t have to look that close) you realise just how little this film actually gives itself to work with. I was utterly bored by the end of this film and couldn’t wait for it to be over. But why was that the case? Where did it go wrong to make this the case? Let’s explore those questions and more in my review. Read more

Review – Miss Sloane

Miss Sloane, directed by John Madden, is a film that offers both a powerhouse performance by, Jessica Chastain and a powerhouse of a character; one that dominates every scene she is in, and has your full attention at all times (quite deservingly). And then beyond that it also has a tightly woven narrative that keeps you engaged in a subject that isn’t always the easiest to make compelling on-screen. There are many complexities to discuss within, Miss Sloane so let’s dispense with the introduction and get onto the review. Read more

Review – The Siege of Jadotville

the-siege-of-jadotville

The Siege of Jadotville, directed by Richie Smyth, is a film that fails to really invest you in anything; its characters, its conflict, its overall plot. Nothing really grabbed me in this film as memorable, a lot of the film feels very flat and void of anything of meaningful substance. So let’s just get into this review and start the breakdown of just where this film goes wrong. Read more
