Bad Boys For Life (2020) – A Quick Capsule Review

Bad Boys For Life (2020) – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
I never thought i’d say it but Bad Boys For Life misses Michael Bay.  No really. It’s not that Bay is a good director as such (in fact he’s directed some of the worse films I have ever sat through) but his unique visual style and staging of action set pieces can carry even the worst of films if used right (see the recent 6 Underground) and whilst directors Adil & Bilall do their best to copy Bay, the film needed more confidant handling in those should stand out moments.  That said, as you’d expect, the team of Smith/Lawrence (looking a little, urm, portly) carry the film well, even if the ‘Bad Boys’ song is getting old, and the story throws in a few surprises that I didn’t see coming.  Overall then the second best Bad Boys Films and a fun afternoon at the cinema, just don’t expect anything groundbreaking.

Best Bit: Chemistry.

6 Underground (2019) – A Quick Capsule Review

6 Underground (2019) – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
6 Underground is a hot mess of a film with one of the worst and most unwatchable opening action sequences in recent memory.  Get beyond THAT car chase however and actually there’s a pretty fun action film with some solid set pieces, a handful of genuinely great free running sequences and a winning (if somewhat familiar) central performance from Ryan Reynolds.  It’s also a film that showcase the best and worst of it’s director Michael Bay – from poor dialogue and OTT acting (and a dash of sexism) to beautifully shot action, excellent use of slow mo and some top notch ideas (the magnet for one).  This gives me hope that Bad Boys for Life may actually be fun… so 6 Underground will not be for everyone but it won me over in the end.

Best Bit: Boat + Magnet

Phil’s Top 5… 2018 Films I’d Rather Weren’t being made

Phil’s Top 5… 2018 Films I’d Rather Weren’t being made

Other Cr*p Top 5

Each week Phil, from Phil’s Quick Capsule Review, takes a look at a different movie or TV related Top Five.  This time out: 2018 Films I’d Rather Weren’t being made

 

Close but no cigar: Halloween, X-Men: New Mutants, Robin Hood: Origins, Oceans 8, Bad Boys for Life

 

5 – Pacific Rim: Uprising
The original Pacific Rim did nothing for me and the recently released trailer for this sequel excites me even less, especially as DelToro is not directing.

 

4 – Scarface
With it’s director now departed, this Urban Scarface remake lost it’s one appealing element.  Pachino’s Scarface (itself a remake) is so seminal that this second remake just feels little more than a very belated cash grab.

 

3 – Tyler Perry’s A Madea Family Funeral
Madea is a franchise that offers nothing. Nothing. The fact that the films still are being made helps me further question the brain power of those who continue to feed the machine

 

2 – Bumblebee
The original Transformers was ace.  Since then the films have quickly become everything that is bad about modern filmmaking. The last thing the word needs is a spin off.

 

1 – Fifty Shades Freed
Fifty Shades Darker was the worst film of 2017 so far.  Fifty Shades of Grey was the worst film of last year. Fifty Shades Freed could break a Quick Review record of delivering three consecutive years of worst films.  Even Transformers hasn’t managed that.
