Twin gynecologists take full advantage of the fact that nobody can tell them apart, until their relationship begins to deteriorate over a woman. (116 mins.)

Agent J travels in time to M.I.B.'s early days in 1969 to stop an alien from assassinating his friend Agent K and changing history. (106 mins.)

“ It felt like i was being punished more then the "French Lover"! A title that suggests something entirely different to whats been produced. A mix of Richie and Tarantino but not as clever or explosive!

Director: Roger Donaldson
“ Not exactly a bad premise for a film. I mean, how far would you go for Justice? But the acting isn't brilliant! And the lack mystery and suspense just leaves a mindless action film. Another Xander Berkeley film to cross off the list.

Director: Peter Berg
“ I only went to see this film for Skarsgard and Neeson and as they were hardly in it, i was left with an unlikeable lead followed by a pointless Rihanna and an overused, predictable script! The premise of the film isn't entirely bad (working along the lines of a popular boardgame) but over a 2 hr film with nowhere they could actually go left for boring viewing!

Hopefully the follow up films are better, however, with a slow beginning and undeveloped backgrounds on the characters leaves me a little confused (Especially as i'm yet to read the books).
