Going in Style (2017) **REVIEW**

When you think about three old timers, three legendary actors starring in same film you’d think it would be a film about some old people being sassy and best friends. How about you think again?

Willie, Joe & Albert and three best friends and pensioners doing everything together, even watching Batchorlette. They are quite adorable together. One day they find out that the steel plant they worked at all their lives are going bankrupt so their pensions are being stopped and all of a sudden, they are about to lose their houses and everything. So.. Joe comes up with an idea after an experience he had at his bank; “how about he rob a bank?”. Yeah like that is going to make it all better? But after a few arguments these old chaps go for it.

They reach out to Joe’s daughters ex-husband who know some people who could possibly help with the preparation of the heist. So much planning and accuracy goes into to the entire thing because we don’t want to get caught right? It’s one wild and stupid plan we got here, will they pull it off?

It’s a really funny film with some of the acting worlds most prestigious and legendary actors. We see Morgan Freeman, Michael Cain, Alan Arkin & Christopher Lloyd. Chris sort of plays this pensioner who showing signs of dementia but delivers the one way he only knows how: funny. He is a key person in the chaps story for them to get away with the robbery.

“Going in Style” won’t disappoint you, it’s filled with laugher and all smiles. I say go for it when you are having a bad day, it will cheer you up.

Actors: Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, Alan Arkin, Christopher Lloyd, John Ortiz, Matt Dillon, Joey King and many more.

The Last Witch Hunter (2015) **REVIEW**

I have to admit when I found out Vin Diesel was going to have the lead role in a fantasy film I was highly skeptical. Since we all are used to see him in action films. But I was pleasantly surprised.

Kaulder, a witch hunter. He is cursed by the Witch Queen to live for an eternity. He lives on, hunts witches and other beings. He works with the church who keeps his secret of his existence.  In present day Kaulder is being attacked by someone who knows more about his past then what he remembers. His guardian priest gets attacked, while everyone thinks he is dead Kaulder knows he isn’t dead – yet. He need to find the witch who put a curse on him to make him come back. But he is working against time and the enemy – who seems smart and always one step ahead. Kaulder takes help from a witch, yes. You heard me. The being he hunts and puts away, he takes help from her. But she isn’t like any other witch. She’s good and rarely uses her power. We get to know the source of Kaulder’s immortality curse and how he can be killed.

The Last Witch Hunter. Was a little slow in the beginning and I think the film was a little short, could been longer. Ended fast. But you get to know a lot so you have to keep up with the story. Seeing Vin Diesel doing fantasy is something different indeed and he does it well.

You see actors like Vin Diesel, Rose Leslie (seen on Game of Thrones), Elijah Wood, Olafur Darri Olafsson, Rena Owen, Michael Caine, Joseph Gilgun and many more.

Kingsman: The Secret Service **REVIEW**

When I saw the trailer for this movie I was sucked in and wanted to see it so badly. I finally got to see it yesterday. We get to see Colin Firth in a different role than what I am used to see him in and it was great to see him do something different.

Kingsman is about a secret agency not funded by government. We get to see Harry getting bad news to a woman and her son about their husband and father. Who died by saving Harry during a Kingsman mission. Little Eggsy grows up and is not in the best situation. He gets into fights, his mom dates someone new – greatest ass of them all. Eggsy gets himself arrested and calls a number that’s behind a medallion that Harry gave him as a small child. Harry gives him a choice – go back t o his friends and no future or take a chance and come with Harry to get a future. Of course Eggsy takes the chance but the question is: Is Eggsy Kingsman material? Will he make his father proud from grave by making it all the way to become a flawless Kingsman Agent?

We get to see a series of heart jumping training and action. We get to laugh and feel heartbroken. But we get to see Colin Firth &  Samuel L Jackson is one of their best performance yet. I would recommend this movie to anyone, you wouldn’t be disappointed of it. It delivers everything you get to see in the trailer – excitement, laughter, tension & smiles.

You get to see actors like Colin Firth, Mark Strong, Jack Davenport, Mark Hamill, Sofia Boutella, Samuel L Jackson, Michael Caine & Taron Egerton and many more.
