JAGAME THANDHIRAM – MOVIE REVIEW(NETFLIX)

Produced by YNOT Studios and Relaince Entertainment and distributed by NETFLIX, this film is written and directed by Karthik Subbaraj whose previous bumper hit film “PETTA” had Rajinikanth playing the hero. The story of JAGAME THANDHIRAM is surprisingly wishy-washy as you can get from someone as canny as Karthik Subburaj. There is no effort whatsoever in the script to make it remotely nifty. The scenes … Continue reading JAGAME THANDHIRAM – MOVIE REVIEW(NETFLIX)

The King’s Case Note (2017)

If you liked Robert Downing Jr’s interpretation of Sherlock Holmes in A Game Of Shadows, then rejoice because The Kings Case Note is the same film – same characters, same tone, and a plot heavily influenced by The Hound Of The Baskerville, plus some generic “intrigue in the court” plot thrown in. Likeable characters, occasional humor, just a touch of Wuxia, a pretty solid production … Continue reading The King’s Case Note (2017)

Derailed (2016)

It’s a film which is so real in presentation that it’s hard to believe it’s really just a fictional film. It has got a high amount of action and it’s shot extremely well, but it’s a different kind of action film which doesn’t intend to provide merely escapist … Continue reading Derailed (2016)

Infinite (2021)

I really appreciate Antoine Fuqua’s career as a director.

As expected, Infinite delivers several fighting scenes and car chases, mostly riveting and quite enjoyable. The third act gets extremely over-the-top concerning the action set pieces, which are only tolerable due to a special yet … Continue reading Infinite (2021)

Deliver Us from Evil (2020)

‘Deliver Us from Evil’ is surprisingly impressive. The directing and cinematography was perfection. Camera colours, shots and angles were top-shelf. The writing is good for an action film. A great story that was cleverly written. The action sequences were expertly choreographed. The score was great and fitting, without being overbearing. Casting and performances were outstanding. The little Korean girl was so adorable. Filmmaker, Won-Chan Hong … Continue reading Deliver Us from Evil (2020)

Mortal Kombat (2021)

Great action and fight choreography as was to be expected from a movie with this title, special effects regarding characters and their abilities were also very well done especially considering the budget constraints this movie had. Storyline was predictable from the beginning and the writing itself isn’t gonna win any awards, characters say their catchphrases from the games in key moments of the film, however, … Continue reading Mortal Kombat (2021)
