This remake of the 2003 Korean film of the same name comes courtesy of uber talented director Spike Lee and stars Josh Brolin in the title role.
Brolin plays an advertising executive “who is abruptly kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement. When he is inexplicably released, he embarks on an obsessive mission to discover who orchestrated his bizarre and torturous punishment only to find he is still trapped in a web of conspiracy and torment.”
If you’re in the market for a suspense-filled drama, it doesn’t get much better than this.
OK, so all of Jason Statham’s movies are pretty much the same, but, surprisingly, this one isn’t. At least not exactly.
Statham plays a former DEA who is forced to move away with his daughter “to a seemingly quiet bayou backwater to escape his troubled past. However, Broker's world soon becomes anything but quiet once he discovers that an underbelly of drugs and violence riddles the small town. Soon, a sociopathic methamphetamine kingpin, Gator Bodine (James Franco) puts Broker and his daughter in harm's way, forcing Broker back into action in order to save his family and the town.”
Definitely a feel-good flick, but it’ll certainly keep you on the edge of your seat till the end.
It's the season for animated movies and Frozen seems to be the first of the holiday kid-friendly films that’s actually suitable for adults, too.
Anna (voiced by Kirsten Bell) must team up with “Kristoff, a daring mountain man, on the grandest of journeys to find the Snow and put an end to the icy spell” that has her kingdom doomed to eternal winter. “Encountering Everest-like extremes, mystical creatures and magic at every turn, Anna and Kristoff battle the elements in a race to save the kingdom from destruction.”
It’s cute and it’s fun and it makes for a great movie night with your smallest relatives.
