I’m terribly sorry!

Unstoppable (The movie review)

by Gunther Heinrich, 23 Apr 2011 in Reviews

Despite the generic feel Tony Scott’s action extravaganza gave off, it turned out much better than I expected.

The Mechanic Movie Review

by Gunther Heinrich, 2 Apr 2011 in Reviews

Up to a certain point, The Mechanic feels like your usual action movie. Jason Statham plays a taciturn killer named Arthur Bishop who excels in sending bad people to the other side while letting it look like accidents. Since you can’t fill a movie with only sending another bad guy to the other side Bishop one day gets the order from his “company” to kill his old mentor because that guy must have leaked some crucial information of an operation.

The Mechanic really starts as your generic and mediocre action flick. Even someone living under a rock could guess that Statham’s character was being set up. But who gives? I’m the first one to ignore a story if at least the movie delivers on the action part. Explosions, fighting, broken bones

Season of the Witch

by Gunther Heinrich, 20 Mar 2011 in Reviews

Sometimes I really wonder. Did the guy in charge of the script research his matter at hand? Or did he puzzle everything together by watching other movies dealing with the same topic?

For Season of the Witch the writer did neither. He went even so far as to bother himself with nothing at all it seems. Moreover, everybody else in the production team didn’t bother either about anything, too.

Tron: The Review

by Gunther Heinrich, 6 Mar 2011 in Reviews

Tron is the mother of all geeky geek movies. Since its release this movie managed to gain a cult following which became so massive that Disney decided to finally milk the franchise for good (starting with Tron Legacy and/or the video games).

But is Tron really worth it and worth the praise? After re-watching Tron the cult classic is a mixed bag. It has some great stuff in it but it also contains one major if not horrible problem. That problem is called screenwriting.
