Great in places, but taxing on the most part, it's saving grace is Adam Copeland's character, who carries the film right through to it's conclusion.

(ca) wrote: Grade: B- 16 Years of Alcohol is one of the most depressing films I have seen; but it manages to remain interesting. The film is narrated by the main character; Frankie (Kevin McKidd), a guy in his late 20's who has been a violent person and alcoholic for 16 years. The film begins by showing the last parts of the film, and then delves in to the characters childhood. His father was a philanderer and alcoholic as well, something he found troubling and inexplicable as a child; he has grown up into a man with a hard shell around him, welcoming vices as a natural part of life (like his father). He won't let anyone in, and ends up fighting them if they try. He hold's resentment towards normalcy and balance, and does his damndest to upset it. In with a group of three likewise violent friends, they roam the city streets of London looking for drinks and picking fights. The Clockwork Orange homage's are really the only true "entertaining" parts of the film, with the recreation of certain of Kubrick sets and similar situations from his film; even some of the costumes are subtle homage's. British Writer/Director Richard Jobson takes parts of A Clockwork Orange's framework, strips it of its avant-garde themes and stylizations, while maintaining certain character elements; he then transplants it to realistic modern day London, instead of the hyper-reality of Kubrick's vision. Much like with Alex in Kubrick's film, Frankie is attempting to escape his past (in a very different way than Alex), and start fresh; unlike Alex's brutal procedure, Frankie, whom lives in the real world, attends Alcoholics Anonymous, finds a girlfriend who has also had a rough past, and tries to learn to see hope in a future that is not at the mercy of the past. That hope, as Frankie narrates, can be a tricky thing, a double edged knife; and even when you can forget the past, sometimes it doesn't forget you. As interesting as the subject matter is in this film, the plot is barren of any happiness, and the characters can be extremely polarizing for a film trying to be realistic. And, Frankie himself isn't the most cinematic of characters. He doesn't speak much, and most of what we learn of him comes through his interior monologues. The narrative would be interesting, if it weren't for the fact that it is extremely repetitive and not as revealing as it should be. The film aptly tries to explain, yet it isn't really adding more meaning to the film, it's just adding words to it. It's the over explaining with no addition of meaningful content that add too, to the films derision and depressing feeling as well. It seems that the screenplay tries to fill these gaps in meaning with the monologues (it only 95 minutes long), but isn't entirely successful. If the film cut, say, 30-45 % of it's narration, the film would be much better. The acting is pretty good, notably McKidd in the lead role, as a stony faced, impulsive, self-loathing/self-pitying Frankie. The two female leads, both girlfriends of Frankie, are well placed and thought up characters, and their presence, and differences as people, are markers for the changes that Frankie is going through. One of the women he dates before his attempts to change, and the other he meets before beginning to attend AA. Overall this isn't a bad film, criticisms and all; in fact it's in a some ways its pretty good. I like how the film shows a man stuck in his own life make an attempt to change for the better, and not succeed with flying colours. I like that it gives "Alex DeLarge" a childhood, a formative reason for his adult behaviour. I like the homage's. I like the feelings of tension and uncertainty......I still like this film, flaws and all.

(kr) wrote: With the imminent release of the new Robocop film I thought a rewatch of the notorious trilogy bookend was in order. Directed by Fred 'The Monster Squad' Dekker and written by graphic novel icon Frank Miller how could it go wrong? Well in all fairness I don't think they did go that far wrong abeit a few obvious changes.First of all as we all know the overall violence had been watered down hugely. Of course there are some that will argue that blood n bullets don't equal a good film, and they'd be right, but in the case of this franchise I personally think you need it. Like various other classic adult franchises ('Alien', 'Predator', 'The Crow' etc...) they simply work better without restrictions on who will be watching them, free reign...because they are for adults. So straight off the bat all the dark satirical graphic novel type violence and blood has almost been taken out. I say almost because the film does have some good moments. You can tell its an old 90's film because it does still manage to squeeze in some violence and edgy bleakness. A small scene where an OCP suit leaps out of their tall skyscraper due to their stock crash. Next scene we see a 'blink and you'll miss it' shot of him hitting the ground, well you don't actually see that. Plus during some actions scenes where bad/good guys are gunned down you do get some good old fashioned bloody squib hits just like the first two films. Most don't have any squibs but they are in there so the film isn't all PG-13, pretty sure you get that these days.The actual plot isn't too bad in all honesty, its not too unfamiliar but it works for this franchise. OCP control the cops and now have this special unit specialising in clearing out this specific urban region in Detroit to make way for Delta City, yep the're STILL trying to make Delta City. Naturally OCP are trying to make out this is a positive thing for Detroit and they're actually helping people relocate, but of course in reality they are acting like Nazi's and stormtrooping everybody off in buses without a care for families, property, well being etc... The concept works but its a forced one, most of these OCP guys are dressed like Nazi SS officers with long trench coats in militaristic fashion. They round everyone up just like the Jews were in WWII, many end up getting shot but all that is covered up by news propaganda. Their leader played by Brit John Castle is a decent Euro villain who snarls perfectly. So you throw Robo into the mix and at first, like the cops, he's following OCP rules but eventually he sees how wrong it is, as do the cops, and they all change sides. Its all very predictable, there are a few predictable sequences where the drama is suppose to be heightened to rouse your emotions, like when the cops turn up to help the civvies or when Robo goes after the bad guy who kills Lewis, but the film never really manages to charge you up as it should. It tries hard to do so but just feels flat. There are some nice visual moments (Robo's intro sequence) but nothing as iconic as the first film, hell even 'Robocop 2' couldn't quite give us anything that visually iconic.I think the worst part of the film was the inclusion of the Japanese company working with OCP. This really didn't need to be in there and I don't think you would of missed it if it wasn't. The most heinous crime for the film had to be the Japanese samurai assassin cyborg which was like something out of a trashy low budget ripoff flick. The daft part being this cyborg looked infinitely more advanced and sophisticated than Robo, more like a Terminator, and could have easily kicked his ass all over. Well he could of if he didn't just do martial arts flying kicks on him. He does manage to slice Robo's forearm off but somehow Robo is able to just stick that gun enhancement back on, despite his arm being half sliced off by a katana.The killing of Officer Lewis definitely meant the end of the road for this franchise though. I was still quite impressed they got quite a few cast members back for classic characters, OCP suit Johnson, Casey Wong, Bixby Snyder and Sgt. Reed are all back, as is a nice well done cameo from ED 209 (unaltered too). I was also impressed with the makeup on Robo's face when his visor is off. They managed to get Burke looking exactly like Weller! no dilution anywhere, the effects are spot on and look great as does the rest of the suit. I also think Burke did a good job as Robo, he accentuates his walking and mouth movements a bit too much if you ask me but apart from that he was good. All sound effects on Robo's movement, his gun, ED 209 and visual graphics for Robo's vision are all perfectly recreated, good continuity.Yeah so jet pack Robo felt a bit too much like a merchandising ploy but...damn I'll admit it I quite liked the idea. Its not too incredible an idea and it did look quite cool. I think the limitations on budget and effects hampered what could of been something pretty neat. All in all this film isn't as bad as I recall to be honest, it carries on nicely from the previous films, story is OK, effects all look as good as previous films...had Weller been involved who knows. Bottom line for me is the lack of graphic violence, grimy seediness and dark satire, a must in a Robocop film.

(mx) wrote: An Epic Historical Vengeance film about a Roman general turned Gladiator who is determined to avenge the death of his family from the one who murdered them. Being extremely well produced and well-constructed makes Gladiator one of the finest films of the 21st Century. It's exhilarating storyline and strong themes make it stand out, especially when events occur in the setting of ancient Rome. It's certainly one of a kind and that's, for me, what makes it so epic. Whilst being constructed beautifully, Gladiator has an excellent cast on show, including memorable performances from both Russell Crowe and Joaquin Phoenix. Crowe portrays a strong honorable man and Phoenix the polar opposite, an untrustworthy unmoral man. Both are outstanding in their respective roles, making for an entertaining climax when the two meet. The story is fantastic, it really grabs hold of the audience and as a viewer you go on a journey with the main protagonist (Crowe) and as he goes through the motions you do too. We feel his pain, we feel his sorrow and we feel his desire for vengeance. A Great Story.A powerful and stunning film directed by the great Ridley Scott.
