Live By Night (2016) **REVIEW**

Ben Affleck have always been one of those actors who have been mediocre for me but after I saw The Accountant he truly did change my mind and he did NOT disappoint in Live By Night that he directed and Leonardo DiCaprio was a co-producer on.

Live By Night is about Joe, Joseph, a man from Boston who came home from a war and promised himself that he would never follow any orders anymore and became an outlaw. Early 1920’s being an outlaw or being poor was the options so you could make money. He had two friends that he did robberies with around town, and a girlfriend who was also the girlfriend of a powerful mafia boss that Joe was associated with. Until one evening when the boss finds out about their relationship, Joe gets a beating and before he was about to get taken away, his father shows up – who’s a high up police officer. Earlier Joe had been involved in a robbery gone wrong and few police officers were killed, Joe gets arrested¬† but he didn’t kill the cops, his friends did so he got 3 years for robbery.

When Joe comes out of prison he is ready to start over, he starts working with the Italian mafia and takes over the Florida affairs. He’s in charge of the making of rum. This was during prohibition so his crew was making alcohol and selling it in bars out on the woods. Everything was going nicely until the KKK shows up and starts a war and Joe need to handle.

And also during Joe taking care of the Florida alcohol making he also falls in love with his partners sister. First thinking it will only be a fling but it blows into a full on relationship and marriage.

But here’s the thing, will Joe be able to handle his crew and run things and keep his girl happy? At the same time living in threat of KKK, who is making threats to Joe’s business and to kill his girl.

Live By Night was surprisingly good and I was in awe of Ben Affleck’s amazing acting and the script was superb. I was on the edge of my set for the entire duration of the film and I’d say go and see it soon as you can. It will not disappoint you in any way. The film does contain strong language that some might find offensive with strong violence and sexual scenes.

Actors: Ben Affleck, Elle Fanning, Remo Girone, Brendan Gleeson, Robert Glenister, Matthew Maher, Chris Messina, Siena Miller, Zoe Saldana and many more.

Assassin’s Creed (2016) **REVIEW**

When they announced that they where making a film about the game franchise Assassins Creed so many expectations was made from the fans. And myself are a fan of the games. I was hoping they would do Ezio, but they didn’t. They did a different character named Aguilar and his descendant.

Templars and Assassins Creed have been at war for centuries. The assassins have always stopped Templars from finding artifacts that they would use for personal gain and hid it. And its one that they want, Apple of Eden. It’s said it contains mankind free will and using the apple would take away the free will and that is just what the Templars want.

They find descendants and take them to a location in Madrid and put them through a machine called Animus where they will see their ancestors actions and live their story, if they sync they will learn their ancestors skills. And that is exactly what is happening to Cal Lynch. A murderer who just been executed and now Templars got him to find Apple of Eden. But they don’t count on the others in the building nor that Cal will take on the Creed.

When it comes to film critics they have said this film was horrible but for the fans of the games they liked it, well some anyway. I am one of them who liked it and I can let you know – number 2 is in production as we speak. And I am excited to see what they will do with it.

Actors: Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, Jeremy Irons, Brendan Gleeson, Michael Kenneth Williams, Ariane Labed and many more.
