Latest Movie Reviews (BE COOL, THE JACKET, PRECINCT 13)

This film is made out to be action packed but in actuality it's one of the most boring and utterly pointless films ever produced. You just have a bunch of actors playing out there most stereotypical role they've done. You've got John Travolta as Vincent Vega, you've got Uma Thurman as Beatrix Kiddo, you've got Harvey Keitel as Mr. White, and you've even got Steven Tyler as himself, however, he was at least a little amusing. Basically, if this movie is worth watching at all it's because of Vince Vaughn, The Rock, and Cedric the Entertainer, but what do I know about that? I saw it for free. So I'll say this, if you can see this for free, see it; else, don't.

As soon as I saw that Keira Knightley was in this, I was sold. The plot isn't bad either. It's basically along the same lines as THE BUTTERFLY EFFECT, and Adrien Brody has a new fan: me. I've never really noticed him much, but he's actually pretty damn good. Along the same lines as Edward Norton. And to top it all off, you can throw in Kris Kristofferson and Jennifer Jason Leigh. See this movie, you'll be freaked out.

I can't believe I almost missed this movie. I finally got around to seeing this and I am so glad about it. Ethan Hawke can add another top-notch performance to his filmography. Basically, Hawke plays an undercover cop-turned security guard of this really old prison, that's on the verge of being shut down. Except they have to hold a few inmates for a few days, and one of them is gangster Marion Bishop, played by Laurence Fishburne, but the prison, "Precinct 13", becomes under attack by crooked cops, headed by Marcus, played by Gabriel Byrne! Suddenly the prison guards have to team up with their last inmates to remain alive! It's packed with action and there is ne'er dull moment.
