To properly review Sucker Punch we are going to have to set some perspective here.  This movie produced by Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen) was obviously directed at one demographic.  Thus in saying that, if you are part of this demographic you will most likely love this film.

So what is that demographic you say?  Males looking for nothing more than undirected entertainment.  We say this because the best parts of the movie were the scantly clad actresses and action scenes which included knives, guns and bombs.   We are also really digging the  music that played throughout the film.  If anything skip the movie and buy the soundtrack.  Now if you are part of another demographic, then your probably gonna feel like you got SUCKER PUNCHED. 

It started with promise where the beginning draws you in and prepares you for what the lead character is about to face,  but then it went downhill fast.  The movie lacked a solid story line, the acting was suspect and if you didn’t follow closely you might get confused trying to follow the back and forth nature of the scenes.  Even the fights and battles lacked substance in that they ended quickly in some cases and had very little imagination.

The producers of the trailer definitely earned their money on this one because we expected much more.  Although we were disapointed, there will be plenty of people who might enjoy this film as long as they keep it in perspective.

Kill The Irishman



With a name like Kill The Irishman we can pretty much set aside the fact that there were a few racial undertones to say the least. If you can’t handle a few slurs here and there, this isn’t the movie for you.

Now that we got that out the way, lets talk about how good this film was. It’s unfortunate that marketing was not a priority for this film, because the lack of advertising along with poorly designed movie art work purely puts this one at a disadvantage out the gate. Perhaps there are bigger plans in the works. We didn’t anticipate much before we saw the film, but were pleasantly surprised half way through the premier.

You can’t get much more old school than this film directed by Jonathan Hensleigh, which for a movie set in the 70’s is a great thing. When we say old school we mean everything from the cars, to the racial slurs, to the fight scenes, to the way the film was shot and directed had an old school flavor to it. A great example of this fact is that the film was produced in present day Detroit, MI but the scenes looked to be realistically  from the 70’s.

Actors Ray Stevenson, Christopher Walken and Vincent D’Onofrio really brought this true story to life with their realistic depiction of the Cleveland gangster Mr. Greene and his rise to ruling the unions and the New York based Mob gangs present in the city.  There were a few unanswered questions and the movie was a tad slow in the beginning as they built the characters, but overall this was a good film and will keep you entertained.

If you can appreciate the old school, you will definitely like Kill The Irishman.
