Sarah Shahi when I first saw her in the movie, kind of reminds me of Kat Von Dee with all her tattoos. Bullet to the Head has a lot of scenes shot at night. It also involves Sylvester Stallone and Sung Kang driving around in a fancy car, which is reminiscent of the Fast and the Furious films. The intense action scenes featuring brutal fist fights, xmovies8.be people getting stabbed with knives, shot all over their body, explosions, usage of fire axes, and lots of blood are all well done.
By far the most anticipated is the Armor Tech Deluxe range. These toys are the most detailed of them all, and they have some great accessories. This set is sold mainly with collectors in mind and shouldn’t really be sold to young kids. The toys in this set are Shockwave Mission, Negative Zone Mission, and Juggernaut Mission. A favorite of these is the Negative Zone edition, with detachable missile accessories. It looks great, and standing on it’s included pedestal, this will look terrific on display.
In 1987 the franchise appeared as the film, Masters of the Universe, starring Dolph Lundgren in the lead role. However many fans were disappointed by the film as it did not stay faithful to the original story or characters. Mattel had hoped the release of the film would boost the toy line’s falling sales, but it had no effect on sales at all.
Sylvester Stallone looks great for a 66 year old man. Stallone looks like he is in even better shape than much younger actor Jason Mamoa. He shows you he still can be a powerful and intimidating presence. In Bullet to the Head with his hardened exterior and energy he brings to the action scenes, Stallone still has a lot to offer as an action movie hero. His partner in Bullet to the Head, played by Sung Kang has excellent chemistry with Stallone. Their buddy relationship is amusing at times as they both exchange sarcastic, witty, and funny one liners.
A part of the cover for some of the plot holes were flashbacks to the previous film. Sure, there is some degree of backstory needed to advance the revenge plot. However, “Taken 2” seems to rely on the flashbacks in the film for much of the screen time. At some point, the audience member who did not see the first movie has to fill in the blanks on his or her own. Sprinkling little Cliff Note-like flashbacks into the movie simply bogs things down. One reviewer thought the flashbacks were used to hide the flaws in the second movie’s script. Whatever the reason, the people behind “Taken 2” should consider the difference between a sequel and a rehash of the original film.
The premise is deep and unique. Very few action films have deep story lines, but nothing makes an action film more memorable than having one. Movies like The Matrix and Inception have story lines that make the audience ask “what if…?” action film that make people think become more than testosterone-driven movies with mindless deaths. They linger in people’s minds. They make people discuss with one another. They are simply good.
Both Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg did well in sharing hilarious moments in this 2010 action-comedy film. No wonder, the movie won the “Best Comedy Film” award at the first annual Comedy Awards that year. I believed Director Adam McKay has successfully applied his skills in his earlier comedy films.
People have their differences in opinion, but for me, it never got better than the original Terminator film. Kyle Reese goes back in time in this 1984 classic to save Sarah Connor from an evil Terminator sent to kill her, played by none other than Arnold Schwarzenegger.READ MORE
