The Raid 2

If your ok with subtitles its good.  I wouldn’t say its a must watch. I wouldn’t say that its easy to watch. Don’t go if your tired.

If your a fan of the all action type film and a fan of “The Raid” then it may well be a must watch. To set up The Raid 2 I think you need to watch “The Raid”. For those who haven’t seen The Raid, its about a team of police officers who enter a block of flats run by a criminal who they are trying to taker down. The guy running the flats puts an announcement out saying that whoever kills an officer can live for free. So the 20 offices try to reach the top killing all in their way.

Well the main character from this survives (spoiler) and The Raid 2 starts 2 hours after The Raid finishes. He is still bleeding. The idea of The Raid 2 is that he goes onto a new team as an undercover agent. He enters a prison to get himself attached to a gang leaders son.  

I wont ruin the rest of the film. But its a  lot more story than the last one and this means a lot more subtitles. I don’t mind subtitles. The only problem with them is you don’t get to read everything. I swear at one point in this film they put up 3 lines of writing on the screen and I skim read and got to half way through the 2nd line, it gave maybe 2 seconds. But you’re able to keep up with the story line and its a much better story line than the first one. Its gory as hell the same as the first one.

I don’t know what i expected from this film. Maybe i expected just the same gore fest quick fisted film like the first one. If thats the reason you wanted to watch this film then there is a much as the first one, Maybe more (the chap with the baseball bat was particularly good).

Its hard to say weather the acting is good. i felt it was but its hard to tell when its not in English, However its directed by a Welshman. The action is brilliant and fits the film.

Good film worth a watch if you have seen “The Raid”

Muppets most wanted

Ok so i took my kid to the flicks again. I enjoyed this film. Ricky Gervais fan here and I loved him in this. But this is business as usual with Ricky.

The film plot is not secret they have been talking about it on just about everything on tv and radio. Its about a Evil frog call Constantine who breaks out of prison and tricks the police into thinking the Kermit the Frog his him and Constantine is Kermit. Also the muppets go on a world tour so that Ricky Gervias character and Constantine can steal some items so they can steal the crown jewels.

A few cameos and some funny parts aside not a lot happens. Its ok but not a classic. Puff daddy/P Diddy/Sean combes or whatever name he goes by nowadays is in the advert but not the film. And in the Wedding part (Constantine dressed as Kermit and Miss Piggy) the Usher is played by Usher (brilliant joke).

Ok Sunday morning family film but wait for it to be on TV.

Captain America

The Cap is back.
I really enjoyed this film. As a fan of the superhero film I went in with high hopes and came out happy.

The story is basically that someone is taking out S.H.I.E.L.D  and he is pretty Bad-Ass and he has a metal arm that can cope with Captain America's mighty Shield. a few twists in the film that I wont ruin.

The acting is good but you would expect no different between this any Iron Man or Hulk or any of the series. Scarlett Johansson is a joy as usual sexy as hell and still pretty cool. the most unbelievable moment arises when the Black widow (Johnansson) tells Captain America (Chris Evans) to kiss her and he questions it. who does that???? if Scarlett Johnansson asked me to kiss her because she wanted to know if the poison on her lips would kill me I would do it and hope it didnt work......Come on Hollywood how stupid do you think we are? man with metal arm fine........ man refuses to kiss Scarlett Johnasson no way!!!! Wouldn't happen!!!Stupid Hollywood!!!!

Sorry went on a rant then.

good film go see it. its a little long.

8/10 worth a watch
