Phil H (gb) wrote: Judging by the cover of this film thoughts of 'Van Helsing' and 'Underworld' spring instantly to mind...and your not far wrong with that.This is pretty much a copy and mix of both of those films, chock full of lovely cliched characters and everything you've ever seen before in a werewolf movie.Bunch of crazy hardass werewolf hunters come to a small village to purge them of the wolf horror. A young man from the village volunteers to help them do so but there are twists to come, many predictable twists that aren't too well hidden.The film looks quite good with that typically bleak, dark, murky, 19th century, forest set, Eastern European village look. The characters are basically rips from many other films and include your obligatory Hudson from 'Aliens' type, the cool calm Clint Eastwood-esque leader, the sexy ninja like female and a well spoken, smartly dressed toff who throws lots of little knives. A kind of quirky 'League of Extraordinary Gentleman' type looking gang. The dialog is all the right kind of hero spouting fluff you have heard before, tight little one liners throughout the action just to emphasise these guys are cool and tough etc..The reason I watched the film (apart from being a werewolf fan) was down to the reasonable looking effects. It swings from good to bad really, some shots of the werewolf's claws, eyes or silhouettes against the darkness are pretty neat and work well. The transformation sequences are fully CGI and a bit hokey but I've seen worse, whilst in full CGI motion the creature doesn't look that bad. Put it this way its no worse than the first 'Underworld' flick which had a much bigger budget.Unknown cast accept for previous vampire player Stephen Rea, none of which are much to shout about although Guy Wilson who plays the young man from the village looks perfect for his character. Honestly for a straight to DVD film this isn't too bad and offers some nice visuals and claret soaked action, just don't expect anything original at tall.

I was mildly entertained, but I'm not sure I can explain why. Its main problem is that it doesn't know if it wants to be a tear-jerking drama about grief and guilt . . . or a political thriller. Or a terrorist tale. It's a little of all and none of any. Probably something to skip, unless you're stuck on a plane and the other options are worse.

Jacky Wu is one of the most exciting martial artists to watch these days. That's why it kinda sucks there weren't just a few more fight sequences thrown in here. The story was run-of-the-mill, but I liked the characters, humor and, of course, the amazing fights. The main problem was that in the last 15 minutes this movie goes right down the toilet. Too bad, this could've been a great flick with a little more fighting and a better ending.

There are bad movies - and then, there's Gor, a flick so horrid it required a few nights off in between segments before this reviewer could complete it. Wow. Where to start? How about the lead actor? Dreadful. How about the action? Never will you see slower or weaker sword battles. Pathetic. How about Oliver Reed as the lead baddie? No doubt drunk. Any redeeming cheese factor grew moldy in a hurry - as getting to the end of this one literally became a chore. Mission accomplished. Pure garbage. Gor is a bore.

Brett H (mx) wrote: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows is the follow-up to the critically panned and largely forgettable predecessor, and is proof-positive that making a live-action cartoon which completely caters to the fan-base, does not guarantee a quality film. I would hesitate to call myself a ninja turtles fan (my experience involves mainly just playing some of the games and loving the original movie from the 90's), but this is a lackluster, shoddily scripted, and painfully unfunny, summer blockbuster that should've worked and just DIDN'T. Everything fans have wanted for YEARS was put into this film including: Krang and the Technodrome, Casey Jones, Bebop and Rocksteady, Baxter Stockman, and all the returning characters from the previous film; yet it all amounts to nothing more than a jumbled mess and a complete waste of the source material. The story follows the four turtles: Leonardo, Michelangelo, Donatello, and Raphael, who must deal with new enemies surfacing in New York as well as their own trepidations of protecting a city that doesn't know they exist. The returning cast all do fine here; thankfully the filmmakers cut down on Will Arnett and Megan Fox's screen-time, but the new additions fail to impress. Stephen Amell is straight-up AWFUL as a whiny, rookie-cop version of Casey Jones, Brad Garrett's voice doesn't suit Krang one bit, Laura Linney looks lost, Stephen Farrelly and Gary Anthony Williams do okay as Bebop and Rocksteady, and the re-casting of Brian Tee as Shredder is completely wasted. Krang's appearances in this film are completely unexplained, and he literally just snatches Shredder out of the air during a prison escape and quite easily convinces him to aid in his world domination plans... Basically, if you're a hardcore turtles fan, this movie will work for you, but from a film-making point-of-view, it is lacking in almost every way. It's marginally more entertaining than the last film, but that's not really saying much considering the potential this one had.
