Instant Movie Review #19 (Furious 7)

April 14, 2015

James Wan's - "Furious 7"

1) Enthralling action sequences
2) Climax and Paul Walker's tribute
3) Direction
4) Cinematography

Introduction: Celebrated as #OneLastRide, Furious 7 marks as the last film of Paul Walker and it totally succeeded in celebrating his life and proved to be a commercial success worldwide. 

Analysis: Geared up with all the enthralling aspects, we can consider this movie as a dumb spectacle, where you should sit back and enjoy the beguiling physics-defying stunts, nonspecific storyline and accept the movie for what it actually is. 

Direction: Experienced with his skill of making distinct horror films, director James Wan made the right use of CGI and delivered a handful of "wow!" moments throughout the movie and I positively appreciate the technical crew for making it happen. 

Verdict: Nevertheless, Furious 7 was one of the best movies from the franchise and is undoubtedly a heartwarming  tribute for Paul Walker. Worth a watch!

My Rating - 3.5/5
Grade - B+ (A perfect weekend pick!)‚Äč

The Expendables 3 - Movie Review

August 27, 2014

Verdict - "It's appalling and they're done!"

All of our favourite action movie stars in one giant movie. What could possibly go wrong? I would probably say everything!

The Expendables unify once again for the third time with few new lads and a female bouncer as they knock down the perilous Mel Gibson and his gang in a nowhere land. The same old storyline all over again and I'm sick and tired of it.

In detail, initially when the new cast members were announced along with Mel Gibson and Harrison Ford I was genuinely surprised and excited. It made me think that they were going for something new and contemporary. But right into the first thirty minutes of the movie I felt uncomfortable and eventually was bored to death.

I'l say, yes! It is indeed fun to watch these big name celebrities preposterously kicking ass of the goons. But we've already seen it two times before, I don't need a logical storyline too, all I need is some good writing and screenplay and that is my major complaint about the movie. The screenplay was soo mind-numbing and slapdash where it got to a point when I actually started moving my head horizontally with displeasure.

Out of the whole bunch, the new characters played Ronda Rousey, Kelan Lutz, Victor Ortiz and Antonio Banderas are nothing significant, they just need to give an adolescent look to the movie and I didn't really care about them. Didn't mind Banderas humour or Kelan's assertive face but Ronda Rousey is particularly horrible in her performance and I can understand the fact that she's not really an actor to give a decent performance.

Stallone, Arnold and Statham had nothing new to deliver and by far the most impressive performances are from Mel Gibson and Wesley Snipes. They both had few notable moments in the movie and Gibson is astounding as the bad guy.

Nevertheless, The Expendables is a worn out franchise, the fact that it made 27.4 million domestically till now conceals the fact that people are not interested to watch any more of these movies. I didn't find the movie either funny, cheesy or interesting and is unfortunately the worst part of this franchise. Hope they are trying something novel in the fourth installment Expendabelles (female version).

My Rating - 1.5/5
Grade - D+ (Hangover!)
