Anna (2019)

“Beneath Anna Poliatova’s striking beauty lies a secret that will unleash her indelible strength and skill to become one of the world’s most feared government assassins.”

The action, when there was some, was done really well and Sasha Luss handled the physicality like a champ. But this was booooring. I hate to just slap that label on movies sometimes but there was nothing interesting here. The characters were paper thin, extremely predictable “twists”, and the structure did not help. There were so many double-crosses that this was almost a parody of spy movies. (2.5/5)


Demolition Man (1993)

“A police officer is brought out of suspended animation in prison to pursue an old ultra-violent nemesis who is loose in a non-violent future society.”

It’s been a little while since I have seen this and a couple of things really stood out to me. One, it has aged really well and two, how timely it is with the no physical contact and the change in police procedures. This is a fun flick with both Snipes and Sly giving solid performances. Sandra Bullock is a cute goofy ball of fun. (4/5)



Bad Boys (1995)

“Two hip detectives protect a witness to a murder while investigating a case of stolen heroin from the evidence storage room from their police precinct.”

I simply love this movie. One of the few Michael Bay movies I really enjoy. Will Smith’s and Martin Lawernce’s back and forth is still hilarious along with their insults with the other detectives. Joey Pants is always a win. Téa Leoni’s character was a lot more grating this time around and I didn’t find Tchéky Karyo’s villain as menacing this time around. I wanted more of him and I thought there was. Overall, this is still a fun buddy cop flick from the 90s. (4/5)
