The Punisher is probably a mid-tier comic book movie and while it’s certainly not great, I did find it mostly entertaining mainly for Thomas Jane rather than the plot or thinly written villain.

3:10 to Yuma is one of the best modern westerns that features precision direction from James Mangold and includes a stellar cast by Russell Crowe, Christian Bale and Peter Fonda not to mention Ben Foster, Alan Tudyk and Logan Lerman in supporting roles.

Inferno isn’t terrible but it was an underwhelming addition to an otherwise entertaining, if not flawed, franchise. The saving grace, as usual, is with Tom Hanks who makes this entry watchable, otherwise it was a rather forgettable viewing experience.

The Finest Hours is not a great movie but perfectly adequate that tells a compelling story that is utterly amazing.

Hostage is an effective enough thriller with Willis fitting into his role of a worn out veteran cop like a glove, heck probably better than in Live Free or Die Hard even, but the story itself doesn’t quite past muster despite some decent performances from the supporting cast.

The Mechanic is just your typical Jason Statham action film, whether or not that’s a compliment is entirely up to you but he has a brand not unlike Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger from the ‘80s and ‘90s transformed for the 21st century. As for what the Blu-ray offers, the video and audio both deliver the goods but it falls far short in the special features department.
