Kevin R (it) wrote: Turn them into hooker royalty.A Muslim and American detective collaborates to try and bring down a terrorist drug lord in the Indonesia city of Java. The American quickly becomes to scapegoat for many of the terrorist's acts complicating their efforts and the Indonesian detective's ability to trust him. Can the two work together and track down the terrorist kingpin?"You know you can trust me.""Yeah, that's why you're sitting in the back."Conor Allyn, director of Hearts of Freedom, Zoe Gone, Pocket Listing, and Hyper 5, delivers Java Heat. The storyline for this picture is very mediocre and clich with an excellent villain. The script is mediocre and the action is fairly good. The cast delivers below average performances and really only has Mickey Rourke worth noting."Like a bull in a China shop.""Why would a bull buy dishes?"This was recently added to Netflix so I added it to the queue as a fan of Mickey Rourke. This was a very blah action film with little going for it. Rourke had some good moments, but not enough to make this worth watching. I'd skip this, even if you're a fan of action pictures."You get in bed with a snake don't be surprised when you are bitten"Grade: F

Stuart K (ca) wrote: Written and directed by Atom Egoyan (The Sweet Hereafter (1997), Felicia's Journey (1999) and Devil's Knot (2013)), and adapted from Rupert Holmes' 2003 novel. This dark erotic thriller is heavily inspired by the plotting of Citizen Kane (1941), although the plot here is quite unbeliveable and despite the best efforts of the two inspired leads, despite it painting a labyrinthine whodunnit, it feels derivative. In 1957, entertainers Lanny Morris (Kevin Bacon) and Vince Collins (Colin Firth) are at the top of their game, and after hosting a marathon 39-hour-long polio telethon in Miami, head to a hotel in New Jersey where student Maureen O'Flaherty (Rachel Blanchard) is found dead in a bathtub. Even though they had nothing to do with the death, Lanny and Vince dissolve their partnership. 15 years later, writer Karen O'Connor (Alison Lohman) has accepted an offer to ghostwrite Vince's autobiography, but she gets sent chapters from a book that Lanny has been writing, and it's though this that she discovers what really happened to Maureen O'Flaherty. It's a good idea for a film, but it flits too much between 1957 and 1972, and the scenes with Firth and Bacon doing comedy schtick as the two entertainers is the best, and it should have focused more on that, and despite Egoyan's best efforts, as he relishes on tales of dark human nature and desires, it doesn't feel right.
Katherine M (es) wrote: I've heard a lot of critics call this movie "slow," "boring," "meandering," etc. I have to wonder what kind of slow they mean? Slow as in, not an action movie? I'll concede to that. But slow intellectually? Emotionally? I don't think so. There are some parts of the movie that are painfully corny, but otherwise the movie is moving and complex. As Fielding, the main character, begins to suspect he's losing his mind, the audience surely begins to wonder that as well. Is his beloved Sarah still really alive? Is he imagining her? The sentiments implicated by the resolution of the film are something anyone who has loved, lost, and grieved can relate to.

Carlos M (mx) wrote: I can't see anything appealing or satisfying in this revenge exploitation movie, and it looks cheap and ugly in basically every aspect: the subpar acting, poor direction (even the framing is awful), amateurish pacing and ridiculous deaths that don't justify all the violence that precedes them.
Paul D (ca) wrote: Man, this film was terrible... I could not believe how bad it was... Nothing was funny thats just the start for this horrible comedy... The acting was not only bad, but appalling. Who ever thought of actually finishing this movie and put it on the market should be shot. This has got to be one of the worst movies I have ever seen...
Elgan D (fr) wrote: Quirky characters, sharp dialogue and a good Paul Newman performance make this a decent watch but it isn't too engaging or thought provoking beyond these points.
GM W (ag) wrote: Awesome movie, Richard Donner's Director's cut is better that the original cut.
Luke C (br) wrote: The Poltergeist sequel is terrifying just like the original but with better suspense.
