I was surprised how much I enjoyed Close.
It's a great little film that belies its humble production budget. Great performances and plot rollout, only slightly hampered by a couple of misjudgements, that aside I think Close is one of the best female led action films I've seen. I only mention that as - of late, some things have been really divisive - this isn't in that category - Close is a solid mostly well conceived action film.
I really hope Noomi Rapace bring Sam Carlson back to the screen and keeps it small and tight and out of trying to solve global conspiracies.
Director Chad Stahelski has interesting background, one that serves him well making films in the action genre. An almost life long martial arts practitioner specialising in kick-boxing and Kung Fu, particularly the styles taught by Bruce Lee. He got his break in film with roles in various low budget films before stunt doubling for Brandon Lee in The Crow.
He again leveled up when he doubled for Keanu Reeves in the incredibly successful Matrix as well as choreographing fight sequences…
Loved Doctor Strange! There wasn't any part of it that wasn't wonderful and inventive the way a Marvel super hero film should be. Maybe the music could have been a little more exciting and in tune with the mystical elements but the 3D really lived up to the promise of what it can be. More please
What a film! I was absolutely thrilled by and loved Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice - it truly is an Epic Super hero film in every sense. I haven't felt this excited about a comic film since Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins and I have to say all things considered Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice might just be my favourite DC film!
This is the first of two posts concerning Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman…
