Escape Plan: The Extractors, and this might be faint praise, is at least better than the previous installment if only that Sylvester Stallone seem like he was the star. As it is, there is some fun entertainment value to the third entry.
Life on the Line is a misfire of a movie if only that they could’ve told a great story of the unsung heroes who work to keep the power on in some of the most difficult circumstances. Instead, this film tosses in a terrible B-plot with unnecessary characters making this just another poor release starring an actor relegated to direct-to-video status.
Idle Hands is a film I initially didn’t care much for but have grown a bit fonder of over the years. The cast is great headlined by Devon Sawa and Seth Green, with Jessica Alba making an impressive appearance early in her career and serves wonderfully as eye candy. The Blu-ray released by RLJ offers excellent video/audio transfers but the features are non-existent which is to be expected from a cheap and quick release.
Endure is a finely directed thriller with a good performance from Judd Nelson, thick stache and all, but the story itself is far too simplistic that it would’ve been better suited for a television series like “Criminal Minds” or “CSI”. I also had a problem with some of the behind-the-scenes decisions between the choppy editing and an overbearing and, at times, needless score during some key scenes.
