101 mins     Comedy, Horror, Thriller      

Sitting down to watch Tom Hanks in "The 'burbs" something struck me straight off and that it has a slight similarity to "Desperate Housewives". That may seem a bit strange but "The 'burbs" is about the men in a small street w...

11:14

11:14 (2003)   4/54/54/54/54/5

85 mins     Comedy, Crime, Thriller      

"11:14" is the sort of darkly funny movie which makes me wonder what the movers and shakers in Hollywood are thinking. The reason being is that "11:14" is a brilliant movie, totally absurd, convoluted beyond the point of reas...

12 Hours to Live (2006)   2/52/52/52/52/5

88 mins     Crime, Drama, Thriller, TV Movie      

One of the things that those who make TV movies do is to bring in some familiar names to make a movie and as such in "12 Hours to Live" we have Ione Skye, Kevin Durand and Kim Coates. The thing is that whilst this trio delive...

12 Rounds

12 Rounds (2009)   3/53/53/53/53/5

108 mins     Action , Crime, Thriller      

Let me put some facts down for you; "12 Rounds" not only stars wrestler John Cena but is produced by WWE Studios and if that wasn't enough it is directed by one time action main man Renny Harlin. Now anyone who chooses to wat...

16 Blocks

16 Blocks (2006)   3/53/53/53/53/5

105 mins     Action , Crime, Thriller      

"16 Blocks" is unsurprisingly a pretty stereotypical action flick starring Bruce Willis in a similar role to the sort which has dominated his Hollywood career. I can see the sales pitch now producer: "Bruce we have a great ro...

158 mins     Action , Adventure , Disaster, Drama, Sci-Fi, Thriller

123 mins     Drama, Thriller

23 Paces to Baker Street (1956)   4/54/54/54/54/5

103 mins     Mystery, Thriller      

Everyone who watches "23 Paces to Baker Street" says the same thing, it is very Hitchcock like. From the styling through to the storyline director Henry Hathaway has crafted a movie which feels and looks like a Hitchcock movi...

28 Days Later

113 mins     Horror, Thriller      

To be honest I am not a huge fan of all Danny Boyle's movies, many of which I find enjoyable but not as great as some proclaim. In a lot of ways I find Boyle's work to be similar to that of Tarantino's, in the fact that even ...

3 Days to Kill

3 Days to Kill (2014)   3/53/53/53/53/5

117 mins     Action , Drama, Thriller      

Well as a way to fill 2 hours on a Saturday night "3 Days to Kill" did the job. It has action with some gun play, car chases and a sadistic bald bad guy...

3000 Miles To Graceland (2001)   2/52/52/52/52/5

125 mins     Action , Crime, Thriller      

Oh dear, what went wrong? Maybe I was wrong to be expecting "3000 Miles To Graceland" to be a clever heist movie along the lines of "Ocean's Eleven", because I certainly didn't get it. The actual robbery, which is sadly the b...

31 North 62 East

31 North 62 East (2009)   3/53/53/53/53/5

99 mins     Thriller      

In the opening scene of "31 North 62 East" we meet the Prime Minister played by John Rhys-Davies and seems like it was based on former Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott but played well over the top so that for not one minut...

4.3.2.1 (2010)   2/52/52/52/52/5

117 mins     Crime, Thriller      

As a Brit I try to support British cinema both new and old but I guess I am getting a bit too old for some of the current trends in modern cinema. That is the only reason I can come up with for not liking "4.3.2.1" a movie wr...
