LOCKOUT
ACTION/SCI-FI
               
                When you mix Die Hard and Escape from New York you get this good movie that was in the theaters for a hot minute. Set in the future  is about Snow (Guy Pearce The King’s Speech) a wise -cracking government agent is framed and his only way to clear himself is to bust in a maximum security prison to save the President daughter Emilie (Maggie Grace, Taken). It is very funny, very violent thriller.  It will do much better on video.

PUNISHER: DIRTY LAUNDRY
CRIME DRAMA ACTION
(YouTube)

                I usually don’t review a ten minute movie but I looove the Punisher so much Thomas Jane made a short film that is on YouTube.  It was first shown at this year’s Comic Con.  It is about Punisher who now lives in a van and he decides to do laundry.  He sees hookers assaulted and a kid harass to sell drugs.  He tries not to get involved but when he does badass is the only way to describe it.  For fans of Punisher it is so good yet you just want more.  One thing I didn’t like was all the bad guys were black.

THE RAID: REDEMPTION
CRIME DRAMA ACTION

                This film was in theaters with not much fanfare but this flick is action packed!!!  Director Gareth Evans is AMAZING!!!  The story is about an Asian SWAT team trapped in a building to arrest a ruthless mobster protected by his killers and thugs.  Plot is not important but mayhem is and each floor it gets more and more dangerous.  The standout performance is not the hero Rama (Iko Uwais) but Mad Dog( Yayan Ruhian) is martial arts skills are outstanding!!!  He is Tony Jaa’s (Ong- Bar) equal!!  It is dubbed and the English subtitles are terrible but you not watching for that.  PLEASE RENT, BUY THIS VIDEO!!!

THE DARK KNIGHT RETURNS PART 1
ANIMATION

                Wow!!! This animation is amazing and VERY, VERY violent.  It is based on Frank Miller’s graphic comic.  Batman voiced by the original Robocop Peter Weller is 55 and retired until mutant criminals get him out of retirement.  It is not a long movie but it packs a lot in.  DVD is not for children but good for teens and adults.

MARVEL’S THE AVENGERS
FANTASY/ ACTION

                The film that broke box office records is finally on Blu Ray and DVD.  If you love the superheroes it is a must to have!!  On the DVD they have a short movie about the movie and on Blu-ray they have a gag-reel.  You will enjoy it!!
