The Hitman’s Bodyguard

There’s not much about The Hitman’s Bodyguard you haven’t seen in some form or another in preceding films. Lead character falls from grace and spends the whole movie trying to redeem himself? Been there. Two characters bickering constantly throughout and have to drop their egos to work together? Done that. Its plot, a race to […]

Avengers: Age of Ultron – Mike’s Review

During the opening sequence of  “Avengers: Age of Ultron”, in which our mega-heroes lay siege to a compound belonging to the sinister Hydra organization in a fictitious Eastern European country, I had a vision of the film’s writer/director Joss Whedon playing maniacally with action figures in his parent’s’ basement while mouthing the characters’ frequent wisecracks at […]

Avengers: Age of Ultron – Eddie’s review

Isaac Asimov’s Zeroth Law of Robotics states: “A robot may not harm humanity, or, by inaction, allow humanity to come to harm.” In the 2004 film very loosely based on (it actually says “suggested by,” not “based on” in the credits) Asimov’s I, Robot, we see the evolution of this Zeroth Law into something very […]
