Hurricane Heist – A Quick Capsule Review

Hurricane Heist – A Quick Capsule Review

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Hurricane Heist isn’t the worst film you’ll see this year but man it’s a slog at times.  Badly cast, poorly executed and with action that leaves you preying for a bigger budget, it doesn’t get much better when you consider the weak script and frankly predictable story.  Maggie Grace is out of her depth and you’d expect far better from the director of the first Fast & Furious movie. One to miss

Best Bit: Urm…

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
In a year of dumb, fun films XXX The Return Of Xander Cage doesn’t quite hit the highs of the latest Fast & Furious films but it also isn’t anywhere near as bad as the reviews have you think.  XXX does what it says on the tin.  It’s stupid, it’s loud and it’s good, mindless fun. Sometimes that’s all we need…

Best Bit: Donnie Yen

Phil’s Top 5… Fast & Furious Movies

Phil’s Top 5… Fast & Furious Movies

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: Fast & Furious Films

Close but no cigar: 2 Fast, 2 Furious, Fast & Furious: Tokyo Drift

 

5 – Fast & The Furious 7
The film had to deal with Walker’s untimely death and it does it well using bleeding edge effects work, stunt doubles and a tweaked story to give him a fitting send off.   Whilst it’s not the strongest outing the ending is pitch perfect.  Oh it also introduced Kurt Russell to the franchise.  Winning. 

 

4 – The Fast & The Furious
The original is still a good film, even if it bears no resemblance to what the franchise has become.  Made Vin a viable action star and a name out of Paul Walker.

 

3 – The Fate Of The Furious
Bringing Statham back to duel with the Rock, introducing a new villain and bringing in Helen Mirran – the franchise feels more comfortable now it doesn’t have to deal with the passing of it’s major star.  Eastwood makes a good addition also.  

 

2 – Fast & Furious 6
With The Rock on board along side the good guys (well the mostly good guys) the action ramps up, as does the thrills and excitement. It’s not Shakespeare but it’s top draw blockbuster.   

 

1 – Fast 5
The Rock joins the franchise, the team are back together and the franchise tilts from being about car racing to something more akin to the Expendables meets Oceans 11.  The vault sequence still rates as a franchise high.

Quick Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
Wow.  From a career high with Breaking Bad, to what will undoubtedly be a career low with Need For Speed.  That’s not bad in just a few short months. It’s not just that Need For Speed is boring, it manages to make car racing around streets dull.  And that’s no mean feat. Add to that a criminal lack of regard for civilians, meaning this not just a chore to watch but also morally dubious to boot.   Time to move on me thinks…

Best Bit: At least the car chases are done mostly without CGI.

Buy, Rent, Stream, Borrow: Borrow.
