Geoff Cox’s guide to new DVDs: Battleship, Lockout, Marley
The Bucks Herald - over 4 years
Nonsensical and patriotic to a ridiculous degree, BATTLESHIP (12: Universal) is a special effects extravaganza that makes up the rules as it goes along. After Transformers and GI Joe, this is the third Hasbro toy-to-film franchise and it doesn’t mess with a winning format. Essentially, it’s Transformers at sea with rebellious no-hoper Lt Alex Hopper (Taylor Kitsch), keen to win the respect of his girlfriend’s father, turned into a naval hero who must fight off alien invaders. These creatures are snake-eyed cyborgs who pilot ocean-hopping spacecraft, armed with giant yo-yo weaponry. Once he’s got the soap opera out of the way, director Peter (Hancock) Berg delivers grand-scale wanton destruction that’s dumb fun personified. When in doubt, Berg defaults to disaster mode with CGI vistas nabbed from blockbusters like Titanic, 2012 and Pearl Harbor. Highlights include the title game replicated as a grid map based on tsunami-warning buoy positions and war veterans wheeled into action t ...

Through a mirror darkly: Snowhite and the Huntsman
The Express Tribune Blogs - over 4 years
For a picture that focuses on a main character obsessed by beauty, it is fitting that Snow White and the Huntsman is a film of astounding artistry. Featuring enchanting visuals that mesh highly imaginative sequences replete with the macabre and the beautiful, the film is a grand effort from first time director, Rupert Sanders. But where Sanders excels further is in the film’s visceral action sequences that feature some sweetly choreographed hack and slash action, and coupled with the film’s grim backdrop, make for some fine viewing for fans of dark fantasy. The film is a reimagining of the classic fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm, and while Snow White and the Huntsman ensnares with its production values, it isn’t as abundant in originality in its storytelling. The film starts with Ravenna (Charlize Theron), a witch of spellbinding beauty, who strikes with her ‘Dark Army’ after seducing unwary rulers. One such kingdom she targets is ruled by the good ...

Lockout
News In FILM - almost 5 years
French producer Luc Besson (the Transporter trilogy) has made a name for himself (and others) pumping out high-octane, adrenaline-fueled schlock. Thrillers that only pause to deliver a well-timed one-liner, while a tough-as-nails hero (usually European) blasts away bad guys to save a fragile victim and complete his mission. His movies are made up of mostly standard stuff, red meat for red-blooded males, but at least they move. Besson’s latest run-and-gun is a high-concept sci-fi noir set in the year 2079. Except the “high” concept is essentially “Escape from New York in space” since the movie lifts the entire plot, in which a wise-cracking antihero must rescue an innocent official stranded in a futuristic prison overtaken by psychotic convicts. James Mather and Stephen St. Leger share directing duties on their first feature and co-writing credits with Besson, but struggle to represent anything especially inventive. As a result, your enjoyment will depend almost entirely on your famil ...

‘Text family you are going to die’
Hartlepool Mail - almost 5 years
A DOMESTIC violence victim who was told by her vicious partner to text her family to tell them she was going to die has praised the police team who helped her after her chilling ordeal. The woman was a former partner of twisted Scott Vincent Rogan, who is now serving a four-and-a-half year jail term after carrying out some terrifying attacks over a four-day period at a caravan site in the Crimdon area. Rogan rained punches down on her and damaged her car after he learned she had been texting another man when she assumed their relationship was over. He had also hit her in the shoulder with a hammer, lowered a machete onto her as she tried to sleep in bed and bundled her into his car boot and told her he had dug a hole for her body. The woman’s torment came to an end on August 24 last year when Rogan, 31, beat her before sticking a knife in her back, but left no marks, and then calmly put the weapon away. The woman, who is open about how she blamed herself for Rogan’s actions as sh ...

Lockout Review: Guy Pearce’s Retro Space Prison
On The Box - almost 5 years
LOCKOUT (15): On General Release Friday 20th April When dealing with a space station prison that’s been commanded by dangerous psychopathic inmates, the obvious solution is surely to send in just one lone man to resolve the situation. Not just any man, of course, but a man armed with nothing but devastating quips, an insanely chiselled jaw and plenty of attitude. This, astonishingly, is the plot to Lockout, the screenplay to which could easily have sat untouched in a drawer for the past 15 years. It’s a movie that reeks of an age that made stars out of Vanilla Ice and Zig and Zag. Even the supposedly futuristic technology seems unashamedly 90s. The future, we’re lead to believe, has cool retro-style computers with black screens and large green lettering, and flickering warning lights. The ripped hunk chosen for the dangerous one man mission goes by just one name: Snow (Guy Pearce) a character whose natural gift for kicking ass is only bettered by his ability to come up with ham ...

Film reviews: Salmon Fishing in the Yemen | Ecstasy | Elles | Blackthorn | Lockout
Scotsman - almost 5 years
Alistair Harkness and Mike McCahill offer their views on the films now screening in the cinemas Salmon Fishing in the Yemen (12A) Directed by: Lasse Hallström Starring: Ewan McGregor, Emily Blunt, KristIn Scott Thomas, Amr Waked Rating: * JUST when Beginners seemed to suggest that Ewan McGregor was on the verge of once again being more than just a charming chat show guest with a raft of terrible movies to promote, along comes Salmon Fishing in the Yemen. Cast as the tweed-wearing, sandwich-carrying, mild-mannered hero of this woefully unfunny, grindingly twee adaptation of Paul Torday’s best-selling novel, McGregor acts as if he’s been time-warped into modern-day Scotland from the 1950s. Granted, his fishing-obsessed civil servant is supposed to be a bit old-fashioned, but McGregor takes the repressed Presbyterian thing a bit far, playing him with almost Rain Man levels of social awkwardness. It is, of course, all a set-up for a cutesy, unlikely romance with a management consul ...

“Lockout” review — the longest 90 minutes in cinema history
Blast Magazine - almost 5 years
1 out of 4 stars This movie is barely 90 minutes long. And “Lockout” was the longest movie I’ve seen in the past year. At least. It’s still a little unclear how this is possible. Was it the fact that in 2032 or whenever this movie is supposed to be set, it seems that anyone can be an astronaut? Was it the entire scenes and plot points that were so poorly cribbed from better movies such as “Blade Runner”, “Die Hard” and “Con Air”? Was it Guy Pearce’s inept Harrison Ford impression? Was it the near constant threats of rape against the President’s daughter who’s on the space prison where there’s a mass breakout? Directed by: James Mather and Stephen St. Leger Written by: James Mather, Stephen St. Leger and Luc Besson Starring: Guy Pearce, Maggie Grace, Vincent Regan Rated: PG-13 Was it because the movie takes place in a space prison? Let’s just call it all of the above. Here’s what I think happened. Celebrated action director Luc Besson (“The Fifth Element,” “The Professional ...

Review: <i>Lockout</i> Delivers Distinctly 1990s-style B-movie Action Goods
Moviefone Blog - almost 5 years
Lockout 2012 95 minutes rated PG-13 by Scott Mendelson The funniest moment in Lockout, especially in hindsight, is a credit that appears which states that the film is 'based on an original idea by Luc Besson.'  Written and directed by James Mather and Stephen St. Leger, the film is the sort of genre rip-off that is so old that it almost feels new again.  This film is as unoriginal as a movie can be without being a sequel, remake, or reboot.  That it is none of those things inspires a token amount of warm feelings, which in turn says something about the state of the industry.  Guy Pearce may be attempting to create a new Snake Plissken, but the film's template is pure unadulterated Die Hard.  More than that, Lockout feels less like a riff on Die Hard than a science-fiction and comparatively large-budget variation on the countless direct-to-VHS Die Hard rip-offs that prospered during the uber-late hours of HBO-5 or Showtime-6 just before DVD hit the mainstream.  W ...
