Welcome to Movie Review

Welcome to movie review, this is a site dedicated to review's on movie's that are very recent, to movie's that are considered modern classic's to the people, not to the critics.

This site will give a full review of many great movies out today. Also, you're opinion is very important to us, please feel free to rate any movie on this site.

Oceans Twelve Review

Europe and Thievery mix very well in this classic sequel. Which takes place three years after their big heist in Las Vegas. The story in general consist of this, someone brakes the number one rule. The number one rule is not to snitch, well that is exactly what happened, they were ratted out. So basically what they have to do is earn back the money they stole from the casino owner in Las Vegas.

The great part of the movie, is that it takes place in Amsterdam and Rome. There are some scene’s that are purely breathtaking of the Italian coast or the canals of Amsterdam. There is a superstar cast, and a great conflict between Ocean Eleven’s crew and another great thief called Onyx. The ending is confusing the first time you see it, but it gets better the second time around. This is defiantly one of those movies where you must make sure you watch Ocean Eleven before Ocean Twelve. You will probably not understand everything the fist time you watch it, which makes for good replay value. Made in late 2004. It is rated PG-13 for language. Distributor: Warner Bros.

Produced by: Jerry Weintraub, Bruce Berman, John Hardy. Directed by: Steven Soderbergh. It stars: George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Matt Damon, Brad Pitt, Catherine Zeta-Jones. I give this movie a 10 out of 10.

Assault on Precinct 13

This movie is about a cop who feels bad because his team is killed on an undercover op. He becomes a desk cop at Precinct13. It is New Year’s day and there is a snow storm, a prison transport carrying an extremely deadly mobster named Bishop has to temporally house it’s prisoner’s including Bishop in Precinct 13’s jail. Bishop’s ex partner, who is also a corrupt cop surrounds Precinct 13 in order to silence Bishop from testifying in court against him. This movie was a great remake, because it has flowing action and almost no down time. The ending is nicely done and is not what is expected. This movie is rated R, for strong violence and language throughout, and for some drug content. It was made in 2005. Distributor: Rogue Pictures.

Elektra review

This movie is about a young girl who loses both her parents. She is found by a old blind martial arts master. He teacher’s his art and she grows up learning it, until one day he tells her to leave. She is angry and becomes an assassin for hire. She then gets a call one from an unknown caller about another target. She comes to know the target and cant go through with it, then she and her ex target run from the Hand (evil ninja’s). Eventually there is a showdown between the hand and Elektra. Although Jennifer plays a good Elektra, she cant completely save the movie of it’s poor story line and poor ending. I think it would be safe to say this is one of those movie’s you could wait until it comes out on dvd for. It is rated PG-13 for action violence. Made in 2005. Distributor: 20th Century Fox.

It was produced by produced by: Mark Steven Johnson, Gary Foster, Avi Arad, Arnon Milchan. Directed by Rob Bowman. It stars: Jennifer Garner, Goran Visnjic, Terence Stamp, Jason Isaacs, Will Yun Lee. I give this movie 5 out of 10 stars.

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl Review

Personally it is one of my favorite action movies of all time. Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl is based on the Disneyland ride. It takes place in the Caribbean and is about pirates, love, and friendship. Jack sparrow (Depp) is a captain that was betrayed and kicked of his ship and left for dead. He meets Will Turner (Bloom) who is in love with the daughter of a governor (Knightley). When a pirate’s attack the town and (Knightley) is captured, Will and Sparrow team up to save her on a epic quest.

This is not that poor excuse for a movie that was displayed in the hunted mansion, another movie based on a Disneyland ride. The Black Pearl was a rollercoaster ride when I saw it in theaters. I probably like this movie more than the average person, because I loved the ride at Disneyland ever since I was a kid and still do to this day. The casting was brilliantly done and the storyline fits the aura of the ride at Disneyland close to perfectly. This movie is rated PG-13 for action/adventure violence. It was made in 2003. Distributor: Walt Disney.

It was produced by: Jerry Bruckheimer. It was directed by: Gore Verbinski. It stars: Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, Geoffrey Rush, Jack Davenport, Keira Knightley. I give this movie a 10 out of 10.

King Arthur Review

The new King Arthur is a very well done movie. It is a completely different look on the myth that is Arthur and his knights. When I first saw this movie it was not easy accepting the fact that magic and Merlin did not take a very big part in the movie. The mystic imagination part was just missing. It was replaced with a more realistic outlook, and contrary to most thoughts, I believe that it has originality being that it takes a new look on the Arthur myth.

It was a awesome movie definitely a classic action medieval movie. For those that haven’t seen this movie it is about King Arthur and his Samaritan knights that have to serve the Roman Empire for around 15 years before they can receive there freedom. So basically what happens is they serve there 15 years, only to comeback and find one more mission before they can be freed. Arthur on this last mission finds that his mentor has been killed in Rome, and that the romans are pulling out of England leaving it to the barbarian hordes. He also save’s a young boy and one of the most beautiful actresses in the film business today, Keira Knightly who in this movie plays Guinevere. The end is sad but very well done. This movie is rated PG-13 for intense battle sequences, a scene of sensuality and some language. It was made in 2004.
Distributor: Touchstone.

It was directed by: Antoine Fuquq. It stars: Clive Owen, Stephen Dilane, Keira Knightley, Hugh Dancy, Ioan Gruffudd. It was produced by: Jerry Bruckheimer. I give this movie 9 out of 10 stars it is a classic medieval action flick.

Lemony Snicket’s Series of Unfortunate Event’s Review

Lemony Snicket’s Unfortunate Event’s, Involves the Bauedelaires, three orphans, Violet (Browning), Klaus (Aiken) and Sunny, there parents supposably die in a mysterious house fire. After the fire they are taken to Count Olaf’s (JimCarry). He is extremely unpleasant and eventually they get sent to a few other relatives. Count Olaf wants to snatch their inheritance from them, so he stalks them and kill’s the other relatives they are sent to.

Violet is the oldest of the Baudelaires at she is14, and is there quick thinking leader. The only boy is the middle child Klaus, 12, who is very intelligent and obsessed with books. The youngest is infant Sunny, who speaks in a subtitled language only her siblings can understand, and she has a obsession with biting things. The ending to this movie was a bit disappointing and a lot of the book was left out of course i.e. Harry potter films. Yet the Harry Potter are drastically better than this movie. It was directed by: Brad Silberling. This movie is rated PG for thematic elements, scary situations and brief language. It was made in late 2004. Distributor: Paramount Pictures.

It was produced by: Albie Hecht, Laurie MacDonald, Walter F. Parkes, Julia Pistor. It stars: Jim Carrey, Meryl Streep, Emily Browning, Liam Aiken, Billy Connolly. Even with the movie’s faults, it was based on a brilliant book, and the character casting was done very well. Jim Carry was awesome in this film. I give it 7 out of 10 stars.

Resident Evil Apocalypse Review

Resident Evil Apocalypse is by far better than the first Resident Evil. It is a movie that takes place after the ending of the first film. Where Alice (Jovovich) wakes up to find herself in Raccoon City, full of virus-ridden citizen’s aka zombies. She eventually teams up with the beautiful Jill Valentine (Guillory) and a few others. They are trying to find a way out of the city before it is blown up by the umbrella corporation.

I think this movie is very intense and has a good feel for being what it is which is an action movie and nothing more. There is no big message and it is not a movie for thinkers. So don’t watch this movie unless you are looking purely for an action movie. This movie can be compared to Dawn of The Dead the concept at least. This movie is rated R for non-stop violence, language and some nudity. This movie was made in 2004. Distributor: Screen Gems.

This movie was directed by directed by: Alexander Witt and Paul W.S. Anderson. It was produced by: Paul W.S. Anderson, Jeremy Bolt, Samuel Hadida, Bernd Eichinger, Don Carmody. It stars: Milla Jovovich, Sienna Guillory, Mike Epps, Oded Fehr, Jared Harris. Based on action movies, I give it 8 out of 10 stars.

Coach Carter Review

Coach Carter is a great movie. It is about a basketball team in Richmond California, that is not doing very well until Carter their new coach played by Samuel Jackson comes, and whips them into shape. The team under the direction of there new mentor learn how to be better ball players and strive to get to college and out of the harsh reality of the streets.

Mtv movies have been a topic of controversy. But Coach Carter is a inspirational movie that starts off a little slow, but then starts to get you’re attention around the middle of the film. The ending is very well done and gives the future of the main stars or players in the movie. This movie can be easily compared to the movie “Above The Rim”. It is rated PG-13 for violence, sexual content, language, teen partying and some drug material. It was made in 2005. Distributor: Paramount Pictures.

Thomas Carter directs the movie. It stars Samuel L. Jackson, Robert Ri’chard, Rick Gonzalez, Ashanti, Adrienne Bailon. Produced by David Gale, Brian Robbins, Michael Tollin. I give this movie 9 out of 10 stars.
