Phil’s Top 5… Rotten Movies That Are Actually Good

Each week Phil, from Phil’s Quick Capsule Review, takes a look at a different movie or TV related Top Five.  This time out: Rotten Movies (from Rotten Tomatoes) That Are Actually Good


Close but no cigar: Three Amigos, Deep Blue Sea, Halloween 3: Season of The Witch, Miami Vice


5 – Tango & Cash (33%)
Come on 33%? Stallone and Russell are dynamite together and whilst yes teh script is cheesy this is quintessential 80’s buddy action at it’s best.


4 – Bad Boys (42%)
Critics obviously hate buddy buddy cop movies… Bad Boys has it’s flaws but Smith stamps his authority as a star and again the chemistry sells it. Great action also.


3 – Taken (58%)
Given a 1 star rating by a UK film mag, Taken is a solid 4/5 action revenge film.  It’s dirty, gritty and violent.


2 – Die Hard With A Vengeance (52%)
Yes the weakest of the original three Die Hard films but DHWAV (as nobody calls it) it again a cracking buddy buddy action film that has plenty of strong moments.


1 – Man On Fire (39%)
Well this is just crazy.  Man On Fire is arguably one of Tony Scott’s best films, one of Denzil’s best mainstream actioners and a cracking revenge thriller to boot.  It’s Commando for the modern generation.
