Atomic Blonde – David Leitch (2017)

Strong performances and excellent action sequences save Atomic Blonde from being a mediocre spy thriller. The plot is predictable and the characters one dimensional, but the action is fantastic, the soundtrack thumping and the visuals excessively colourful and stylish. There is a lot to like here for the viewer willing to turn their brain off and watch … Continue reading Atomic Blonde – David Leitch (2017)

Wiping the slate clean of Del Toro's duo of Hellboy films, released … Continue reading Hellboy – Neil Marshall (2019)

However it does measure up to the quality we have come to expect from the MCU and therefore is worth the watch if you're still fully on board with the franchise at this point. Whilst failing to break new ground in any … Continue reading Captain Marvel – Anna Boden & Ryan Fleck 2019
