The Best Movie Fight Scenes

From bare-knuckle brawls to climactic battles, fight scenes are a key component of the action genre. The best fights scenes are chaotic and gritty and make us want to double down on our combat training. Suffice to say I have never been in a fight and claim no expertise in filming a fight scene! Regardless, […]

John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017)

The first John Wick is the definition of a sleeper hit. When it dropped in 2015, it looked like another generic revenge movie, but it turned out to be a terrific, action blast. John Wick: Chapter 2 is bigger, bloodier and builds on everything that happened in its predecessor. You better believe it: the second chapter is […]

Atomic Blonde (2017)

Usually, the only time a cold war espionage movie becomes fast-paced is when someone gets gunned down by a silencer. This is not the case in Atomic Blonde, a spy thriller with an ’80s retro vibe. It’s one of the coolest action movies of the year. And I’ll say this: if Charlize Theron turned up in […]

Wheelman (2017)

Now, this is what I’m talking about! Wheelman is a no-nonsense, beat-the-clock thriller that traps you in a car with Frank Grillo for 82 minutes. It’s the kind of movie that’s better with the volume cranked up. You might want to bring some friends over because it’s high tempo and makes you want to cheer […]

Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead (2014)

A fate worse than death: becoming a zombie – as seen in hundreds of movies about zombie invasions. Many are brilliant and some are so ridiculous and cheesy, but we can’t get enough of them, can we? Wyrmwood is another entry in the flesh-eating canon. I wasn’t expecting much from this micro-budget “B” movie, but it was one […]

The Place Beyond The Pines (2012)

Luke Glanton (Ryan Gosling) makes bank robbery look like a walk in the park in The Place Beyond The Pines.  Motorcycle stuntman by trade, violent criminal by nature, Gosling’s Luke is a classic anti-hero: you root for him, but you know you shouldn’t. This tattooed, chain-smoking biker discovers he’s the father of two-year-old Jason, son of […]

Logan (2017)

Logan is brutal, merciless and hellishly entertaining. This is the R-rated Wolverine movie that I have been waiting for! Hardcore fans of Wolverine will know he’s ultra-violent and ruthless. It’s safe to say the tenth X-Men movie finally gets the character exactly right. Logan digs deeper into the character, exploring in more depth his struggle to contain his […]

Drive (2011)

Everything about Drive is just cool. It’s the film that introduced me to Ryan Gosling and I’ve been a fan ever since. He portrays ‘Driver’, a Hollywood stuntman by day, but a ruthless getaway driver by night. When he steps in to protect next-door neighbour Irene (Carey Mulligan) and her son, from the gangsters that her husband […]
