Kill Chain (2019) – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
On the surface Kill Chain looks like yet another direct to DVD/streaming Nicolas Cage movie.  And to be honest under the surface it pretty much is as well.  It pains me to think how far Cage has fallen of late.  Far from his Leaving las Vegas days, Cage now sits with Willis, Cusack, Travolta and many others in direct to crap hell, churning out movie after movie with little care for content or quality. To be fair Kill Chain is more interesting than most and at least puts forward an interesting concept.  Sad thing here is Cage mostly just book ends a wider (and more interesting) linked narrative.  It’s still not amazing but it’s a start.

The Fanatic (2019) – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Let’s get this out the way first – The Fanatic is pretty bad.  From a baffling but committed central performance from Travolta (who at least is acting for once) to a story that says and does nothing new, The Fanatic is both a terrible look at fan culture and obsession whilst being an even worse dissection of mental health.  It covers similar themes to Joker but without anything that made that film good.  It’s not even THAT nasty, something that could have been it’s saving grace.  Quite frankly The Fanatic is just predictable, low rent and dull tosh.
