The reboot sees the prerequisite babes, bods and beach, with The Rock taking the lead, and a very pumped up Zac Affron, who is probably meant to attract the younger crowd. Add a few more fresh faces, a rough semblance of a plot that could have been pulled out of a Famous Five novel, spice it up with plenty of smut and foul language, and make sure the beautiful bodies are on full display and that's the movie.
Does it work, well somewhat.. it's worth a worth, especially if the above items appeal to you, but rent first, and see how you feel.
Tom Cruise tries his hand at a fusion of Indiana Jones, with some Dirk Pitt thrown in, and it's spun into a Mummy based plot with elements of Jekyll vs Hyde and some elements of a superhero seasoning on top.
Does it work?
Well... it's a rental.. at best I am afraid. It's a case of not bad, but just not.. not funny enough, not actioned packed enough, and the delivery, chemistry are nice but just not too great when benchmarked against the material from which it copied from.
Certainly the surround action will please and be a good demo track, so one can consider buying it on Black Friday. Otherwise rent first and decide.
I wasn't sure what to expect when I heard about this show. Initially I thought it was a war movie, with a war dog thrown in, but it was more about the emotional ride of someone who was caught in a tough situation in Iraq, came through, but not unscathed, and the war dog was part of the story and also part of her recovery.
Those expecting firefight after firefight will be sorely disappointed. It's more of a drama with a war background. Good for those who like the emo ride sort of show.
