Thoughts of the Movie :

The action in the movie is definitely a nice watch. Crime movies with gun-shots, is a definite. Imagine flying bullets, flying people, and that noisy ruggedness coming from a gun’s firepower.

The storyline was a good revenge for revenge plot. It has a clever act of sarcastic humor for an action crime movie, which is quite noticeable.

My +1 and I thought that it would have been better if the film had subtitles due to their actor’s thick accents, which actually got me lost at some scenes. It felt like there was much being said in the movie through conversations, that leads to good fast-paced action scenes later.

I’d also like to focus James Mcavoy comeback to the action crime movie and say that it was good return. His previous acting in movie called Trance, that involves him being part of  a crime syndicate who eventually loss his memory and try to regain back his memory was filled with more better storyline and this new movie’s not so bad.

Just to recap, He also played as the young Professor Charles Xavier in the movie X-men : First Class. Definitely a different image to the scene, but a good movie too.

Life lessons from the movie: 

  • Family values
  • Perseverance
  • A willingness to accept despite differences.

That being said, if you like a good action movie packed with gun shots, and man firing at each other, then I can say it would be a nice to watch for you.

Catch ‘Welcome to the Punch’ coming to Shaw Theaters on the 18th July 2013.

I’ll like to take the opportunity to thank OMY.SG for inviting me to the event.

Cheers!

Star Trek Into Darkness Movie Review

startrek2poster-jpg_155636

This is the first movie review I’ve done so I  will try to give my honest opinion about the movie and do my best to review it.

Star Trek Into Darkness movie was released on the 16th May 2013, USA.

The Director J.J Abrams, is also known for producing movies such as Lost, Super 8 and also Tom Cruise, Mission Impossible 3.

Star Trek Into Darkness is a Action/Adventure and Sci-Fi Genre, and 132 mins duration movie.

The main cast includes actors and actresses such as  Chris PineZachary QuintoZoe Saldana.

Short Brief of the Story goes like :
After the crew of the Enterprise find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction.

 

~~

I went to watch the previous Star Trek Movie, that featured Kirk, being the guy with not so much responsibility, and compared it to Captain Kirk now, and the way i see it, the process and change was immensely deep. Even with his ‘stubborn’ attitude towards the crew and the federation about following protocols, he did make a huge impact in bringing the responsibility out in the end.

*Might have spoilers* 

Kirk and Spock

The Kirk and Spock bromance-  is one of the highlights, that I think, creates a deep  cloud of feeling surrounding the whole movie experience. It seems like the movie was meant to be about both of them and how they experience their journey in life.

I also like the fact that they brought Klingons back because they had it in the first movie.

There was also a twist. A character playing a ‘superhuman strength’ so called warrior designed to create even more better ideas that its own creator. I can’t decide at the first place to whether he was the good side or bad side, but after slowly knowing the truth about what happen in the movie, it was a brilliant act to have include him in the story because he made it interesting.

More ships, more technological advances, and really amazing graphics. Somehow while watching the show, it made me self-believe that this was what it’s going to be like in the future, or when I’m gone. 🙂

I personally enjoyed it because I  feel like the story sticked through the first movie, considering if you watched it, with even more action, a good storyline, more humour, more tears involved ( i hope its not onions they used) and definitely more feelings that was going around and about in the movie, especially between Spock, Uhura and Kirk.

Guess who cried?
