TwitView: American Assassin, A- (in theaters now) The popular book series springs to tense and gut wrenching life and you will be gripped from the opening scene to its penultimate conclusion. Story centers on a young, brash and fragmented man recruited into a CIA assassin program ran by Keaton. Together they work to stop a rogue operative whose spinning the globe to assemble the money, brains and tech to make a nuclear weapon. Film is filled with exotic world locales and just the right amount of sass and brass from the lead. This is a spy suspense-thrliler that achieved in one film what the Bourne series couldn’t do in 5 iterations. Keaton shines as the hard ass former Black Ops agent turned instructor. Box office prediction: $24M opening but word of mouth will take this taut thriller to $100m easy #americanassassinBaltimore #keatonstaysabadass#americanassassinreview

TwitView: “A Cure For Wellness”

Promising start, horrible-in-a-bad-way finish.  In-between is a whole lot of horror padding, and a waste of gorgeous cinematography and production design.  If you must head out to see this derivative mess, watch the first 40 minutes, then head home and write the rest in your head.  I guarantee it’ll be better than what goes on onscreen.
