Movie Review (Angel Has Fallen)

“Angel Has Fallen”

Movie Review

This movie is the third installment of the series following “Olympus Has Fallen” and “London Has fallen”.

This movie started off a bit slow. However, it was background information that was needed. So that, I’m not even going to complain about.

Other than that it was pretty much action through and through as one would have expected. I hated seeing Banner as the one they were chasing, but knew it would make a good movie as it did.

I didn’t like how short lived Jada Pickett Smith’s FBI character was. She was a beast for sure. Would have liked to see her progress through the movie.

This movie has some serious gun power and explosions just like the other movies. Still I was surprised at the devastation of the hospital and how it fell.

I loved them bringing the father in the movie and Banner’s wife almost immediately trusting him was sweet. The end where she warns him was epic to me.

This movie was good. It was an awesome action movie where I loved just about all of it.

OVERALL RATING: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Movie Review (Hobbs & Shaw)

“HOBBS & SHAW”

Movie Review

I finally had the chance to see this movie. This part of the “Fast and Furious” franchise. I was totally excited when I heard this movie was in the making. I just hate I didn’t see it in the theater like I had planned.

This movie is action packed from the very beginning. It started off pretty fast. For the most part it stayed action packed throughout.

One of the things I enjoyed was the humor with them arguing back and forth like an old married couple. I enjoyed the Kevin Hart insert too.

There wasn’t much I didn’t like about the movie. The main thing I didn’t care for was Ryan Reynolds character, Locke, from the CIA. It wasn’t bad just a bit much with the excessive talking. I personally would have liked to see his role a little more serious. However, he played it well.

I really loved how they portrayed the importance of family. Sometimes we take that for granted, but the movie highlighted that well without making it a primary focus.

Throughout the movie there were some amazing driving to bring back the “Fast and Furious” series. My favorite had to be the end with the trucks linking up. I did love the motorcycle Brinks was riding.

Overall, I thought this movie was well written and portrayed. Great job!

OVERALL RATING: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 1/2

“Equalizer 2”

Warning: May contain some spoilers.

I finally got the chance to watch “Equalizer 2” on Vudu. I must say I wasn’t that impressed with this one. I had to watch it twice. I thought at first I was just expecting what I saw in the first one. I had to clear my thoughts of the first one, minus the important details that carried over. And watching it a second time, I didn’t change my stance on how I felt about the movie.

The movie started very slow. I understand it had to have some back information, however, it was very slow starting, too much talking for almost the entire first hour. I found some parts of that hour entertaining. You do see the McCall charm as he deals with various people in his everyday life. I do like how they play through his emotions from the time he finds out about his friend until the end.

There wasn’t much action in this one. It seems as if all the action scenes were what we saw in the trailers for the movie. I’d say the climax of the movie hit in the second half.

There wasn’t clarity in the locations. One second you’re in the city. Next someone is asking for the airport, but they don’t show up in Brussels until a few scenes later, after they did something in the city.

I believe they could have made the movie a bit better than they did as far as consistency. The acting itself was good all the around. The story line was decent.
