Imperfect to say the least, Den of Thieves does have quite a few things going for it from an intense performance from Gerard Butler and suspense-filled crime sequences, that does somewhat overcome the lengthy running time and lack of some character development of the supporting cast.

Escape Plan is a fun throwback to the 80s and 90s action genre culminated with starring the two biggest actors of that era. Although neither one of them are at the top of their game, this is still an enjoyable flick well worth at least one viewing if only to see Stallone and Schwarzenegger fight.
The Frozen Ground excels in many areas from a welcomed subtle performance by Nicolas Cage, a mature turn for Vanessa Hudgens and John Cusack playing the thankless role as the creepy and thoroughly disturbing serial killer. However, for all the good acting by the main cast and beautiful, Oscar-worthy, cinematography, it never quite reaches its potential as a compelling true crime-drama despite all the good and, from what I could tell, keeping with some of the facts, though speculation was thrown in to help the dramatic elements. Even so, this is a good movie worth watching.
Fire with Fire is a nice little suspense-thriller which, thanks to an impressive even stellar cast, lifts above a so-so script into something that will hold your attention for 90-minutes. This is hardly a challenging movie but it’s worth checking out if not for solid performances from Josh Duhamel and Vincent D’Onofrio. Having said that, don’t expect anything more.
Set Upwants to be some personal revenge/vendetta-centric crime drama but instead we get poor writing, even worse acting and uninspiring direction not to mention an odd portion where some dark comedy is thrown in at random. The Blu-ray has, an average video and adequate audio.
There are several reasons why Twelve is one of the worst films of 2010, a movie which is you have several characters you can’t relate to and/or symphonize with either. Add in an annoying and frankly lazy narration that gives all the insights for these characters and un-inspirational direction and you have a movie that does not work on every level.
