Movie Review – “Fast and Furious 6”

I’m a fan of the Fast and the Furious franchise. You know what you’re getting when walking into one of these movies – fast cars, lots of action, and a plot that is simple with a twist at the end. To me, that’s not a bad thing. It means that I can check my brain at the door, sit back, and watch a movie without having to think too hard on what’s happening in front of me.

Fast 6 (or Furious 6 as the title on the print we saw had it listed) delivers on everything I listed above. There are fast cars and an incredible chase around the streets of London. There is lots of action and stunts that will blow your mind (and a few that may make you suspend reality for a few seconds, but again what were you expecting for this type of movie?). And there is a plot that actually takes plots points from the fourth, fifth, and sixth film making these a trilogy as well as answering some lingering questions that have been hanging around for a while.

Add all of this together and Fast 6 is one BAD-ASS movie!

Movie Review – Bullet to the Head

Stallone won’t go away…and that’s a good thing because Bullet to the Head is one of his best outings yet! Bullet delivers a combination of action and fun – and just like that time you put your peanut butter with my chocolate – it works. Based on Alexis Nolent’s French graphic novel Du Plomb Dans La Tete, Director Walter Hill manages to bring an interesting take on the “buddy” pictures we’ve seen before yet modernize it for today’s audience with characters and plot that make you feel invested till the end.

But you want to know what I liked about Bullet to the Head because, well, that’s why you’re here. So here you go…

Grade: B+
