7 Days in Entebbe is what I would call a competently made average drama-thriller. The performances from Rosamund Pike (especially) and Daniel Bruhl are both well done and the story in of itself was interesting, but how it was presented never gelled quite right. Even so, it’s probably worthy of a rental if you’re interested in the subject.

Atomic Blonde might not have lived up to my expectations but it is still an entertaining Cold War spy thriller excelling both with some well done fight sequences and solid performances from Charlize Theron and James McAvoy.

The Exception is a well acted and finely told story featuring strong performances from Lily James, Jai Courtney – both sharing wonderful chemistry – and the always fantastical, Christopher Plummer. At the very least this is well worth a rental.

The Disappearance of Alice Creed is a nice indie picture from that is pretty intense and unrelenting from beginning to end. The film also features three great performances with rising star Gemma Arterton standing out amongst them. The Blu-ray has a surprisingly amazing looking picture and good if not adequate audio.

The Disappearance of Alice Creed is a nice indie picture that is pretty intense and unrelenting from beginning to end. The film also features three great performances with rising star Gemma Arterton standing out amongst them. The DVD itself is limited in the features department but the picture looks great and the audio is adequate enough. If you can pick up the disc at a good price then it would be well worth picking up.
