Plot:

Thieves attempt a massive heist against the U.S. Treasury as a Category 5 hurricane approaches one of its Mint facilities.

Review:

I saw the trailer for this movie in theaters and knew I had to see it. This movie is crazy! I loved it! Seriously, if you liked The Day After Tomorrow there is no reason why you won’t like this one. I realize there is a heist, but the hurricane stuff is great.

Maggie Grace’s character is on her last chance to keep her job. Toby Kebbell and Ryan Kwanten are brothers that are mostly estranged after a tragic accident in their youth put a wedge between them. Full throttle action ensues!

The beginning was great, the ending was great, the middle had a whole scene in a mall that was stupid and dragged and I wasn’t a fan of, but oh well. This was like a 90s action movie and exactly what I was hoping it would be. So happy. Wish it had done well enough to span a series, but oh well at least I’ve got this one.

4/5

Starring:

Guy Pearce

Maggie Grace

Peter Stormare

Plot:

A man wrongly convicted of conspiracy to commit espionage against the U.S. is offered his freedom if he can rescue the president’s daughter from an outer space prison taken over by violent inmates.

Review:

I like the idea of this movie more than I like the actual execution. There was a lot of promise, but I feel like they blew their budget on bad CG at the beginning and then the good parts were rushed.

Snow, Guy Pearce, was a total asshole and it was fun to watch. Maggie Grace’s character was underdeveloped, there were hints of stuff but it was glossed over and she was kind of boring but with potential.

I liked the idea of the prison in space. I wished it hadn’t ended with a “romance” between the two characters. I wish there was more to this world and would have enjoyed more character stuff.

3/5
