Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle exemplifies the early 2000s so damn well, and yes I realize McG was parodying the action schlock from that time period (like M:I2) but doesn’t do it very well, or at least the humor rarely lands.
3 Days to Kill is yet another Luc Besson-scripted, plug-n-play movie that doesn’t really offer anything new to the genre and yet despite all its problems, still manages to be at least a serviceable action-thriller worth a look if only for a good performance from Kevin Costner and also to see Amber Heard don some interesting attires, even if she’s sadly underused.
This Means War is by no means… err… no way a very good movie but because of the cast and at least an interesting premise, makes for an enjoyable, if not forgettable, action romantic comedy. Reese Witherspoon is as charming as ever and the rising stars of Chris Pine and Tom Hardy both show they can be leading men. The Blu-ray offers up excellent audio and video transfers and an OK selection of features that don’t amount to a whole lot.
