Bill C (mx) wrote: Corey Haim's death at the age of 38 this past year left a sour taste in my mouth. Mainly just like River Phoenix, I often wonder, what could've been. While I know the circumstances are different, as Phoenix was still working quite constantly, and died while still doing major productions, and Haim hadn't done a major production in nearly 20 years, due to his numerous problems. I still wonder, how an actor with Haim's natural charisma and tremendous on screen personality that he brings to the table, that had he not made the wrong decisions, what could've been? And he had some promising projects on the horizon. Was a comeback far behind? We'll never know. In 1991, Haim's decline in career was beginning. But to me "Fast Getaway", was a fun, entertaining comedic and lighthearted matinee thrillride, that was actually fun in a B-Movie type of way. The movie was not realeased in theaters in the United States, and saw a very brief release in select Canadian theaters, mainly in Toronto and Vancouver. Haim plays Nelson, a member of a gang of Bank Robbers, lead by his father, played by Leo Rossi, an always reliable character actor, who is best known for his role as the filthy cheerleader in the unforgettable rape scene in "The Accused" with Jodie Foster. Here Rossi & Haim make a fun and energetic team, loving what they do, and also enjoying there way of bonding. However, the team splits up after a bad falling out, but that doesen't stop the father and son from continuing. Annoyed by this is the really quirky in your face bombshell ex-gang member played by Cynthia Rothrock, as she and her bumbling dork of a companion, take matters into there own hands, as Sam (Rossi) is thrown in the slammer, and Nelson is kidnapped by the rebellious duo and forced to work for them. Nelson now must figure things out, how to get out of this situation, and put things back together again. This film is definitely full of plotholes, but by the end I was satisfied with what I saw. Maybe it was because when I first saw this movie, I was 15, stuck indoors on a rainy Summer weekend, and I didn't waste any time. Yes, even a film critic can like a movie, if the movie is put on at the right time in the right way. But I have to say, despite being on a downward spiral, Haim is top notch here. I could've forseen him doing films like this, with people like Eddie Murphy, or even Jim Carrey in the future. But he burned too many birdges and screwed himself over. You can tell Haim is still trying to maintain a good reputation as an actual actor here, but that don't matter when the term "You'll Never Work in this Town Again" is all too true in Hollywood. However, Fast Getaway, may be a reminder of what could've been, but it's not sad to watch, it's quite enjoyable and fun. Sometimes as a film critic, you just gotta relax.

Stuart K (nl) wrote: From Hammer, then red hot from the successes of the Dracula and Frankenstein films, turned their attention to another movie monster, the Wolf Man. Even though they only did the one film, it is one of the most visually stunning of their works, and it's male lead was a star in the making, and shows he had it made at a young age even then. It begins in Spain sometime in the 18th Century, where a mute servant girl (Yvonne Romain) is sexually assaulted by a travelling beggar (Richard Wordsworth), who was locked by by Marques Siniestro (Anthony Dawson), the Marques locked up the servant girl after he advanced upon her. She later kills the Marques, and escapes to the forest, where she is found by Don Alfredo Corledo (Clifford Evans), who takes her in and finds she's pregnant. Though she dies in childbirth, the infant grows to be Leon Corledo (Oliver Reed), a handsome young man, who works at a vineyard. But, he carries a terrible secret, that only his adopted father Don Alfredo knows, something Leon overcame as a child. But after being jilted by Cristina (Catherine Feller), these violent outbursts start all over again, and it turns him into a werewolf. It is an effective, dark gothic horror, but it has everything you would expect from a good Hammer Horror, the great cast, with appearances from Warren Mitchell, Peter Sallis, Desmond Llewelyn and Francis de Wolff. Pity they didn't do any more.

Rangan R (es) wrote: A modern warfare and its effect on the family of a person who involved in it.I like this director's films, because he writes the screenplay for all his films and each were so different with cleverness in narration. Sadly, this is the first one I didn't like. It was very similar to the 'Eye in the Sky', but came before than that and with a stretched storyline. It centres on Thomas, a pilot for unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) stationed at an air base in Las Vegas, but fighting combat in the middle-east. Every day he's bombing at the terrorist makes him quite uneasy when the innocents get killed. And on the other hand, failing to handle his family with his professional distress brings more complication and how it ends are the rest of the film.In my view I think the overly sentimentalised great film concept destroyed it. The emotions work fine in the war themes, but here it gives a wrong idea over battle against the terror outfits. Because of a combat officer with the sympathetic mind, that considered as the weakness of a soldier. So it all begins with the writing, if one wants to make a war film, a modern warfare, relying on this kind of storyline brings only anti sentiments from the soldier's perspective and we the people who love our nation.I understand when the main film characters are not physically present at the actual battleground, not easy to draw a good story out of it. And due to the complete absent of a soldier getting injured in a crossfire, they wend for different kind of emotional dealing. The only thing that made me sense was the sexual abuse parts and how it was taken care later. Good actors, good direction, but a weak story and shortfall of some good thrill moments makes it an average.5/10

There was a lot here to bring someone into the movie: Danica McKellar, William Forsythe, Juliet Landau, Lochlyn Munro, and so on and so forth, but the severe over-(lack of)-acting and sequences of events that just didn't make sense makes this movie almost unbearable. After the first 10 minutes I simply sat through it just to see how bad it could get. There would have been a way to make this movie and had it be entertaining, but I feel Matt Flynn's direction hindered that. His vision was just uninspired... which is funny since that's the point the movie is trying to make: that horror films today lack imagination. Still, I give them points for trying to do something different in a genre that's all but stale at this point...
