I do love me a good movie about the mafia and how one man is sick of how it’s handled and decide to turn on them and give information to an authority in exchange for immunity and come live in their country peacefully. And that is exactly what Our Kind of Traitor is.
A couple is on a retreat in Morocco to rekindle their love, but when the wife turns to their room early because she gotta work, he man gets attention from a man who seems to have money. But what he want it to give a drive to British Secret Service – also known as MI6. On the drive are names and accounts from the Russian mafia and their trusties in different countries – including Britain itself. But it’s not as easy as it sounds. In the end this couple have to work for MI6 to get MORE information from him to later MI6 can decide if they can help the russian or not. It’s a game of death and who wins!?
Our Kind of Traitor been done before but this time it takes place in Europe and not U.S but watching felt like it’s been done before. Yes, it’s a good film with excellent scripting and some scenes where you sit on the edge of your seat and wanting more.
Actors: Stellan Skarsgård, Ewan McGregor, Naomie Harris, Alec Utgoff, Damian Lewis and many more.

During his fight that happens in Vegas you can see how he all of the sudden fights differently. Before the accident of his wife he fight mean and ugly. Now – he fights smart. Billy gets a chance to come back to life and have his daughter again.
Southpaw is a film everyone should see. It’s emotional and powerful. Jake Gyllenhaal is absolutely brilliant and he could capture this boxer’s life perfectly. His daughter played by Oona Laurence did an outstanding job too. I admit I did cry at points because of these two actors had an amazing chemistry on screen.
You see actors like Jake Gyllenhaal, Oona Laurence, Rachel McAdams, Forest Whitaker, 50 Cent, Miguel Gomez, Naomie Harris and many more.
