Film Review: ‘Skiptrace’

28 July 2016 5:04 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

A peak in Jackie Chan’s U.S. movie stardom was “Shanghai Noon,” an amiable buddy action comedy that hung on the odd-couple chemistry between his straight-arrow Chinese emigre hero and Owen Wilson’s laconic, genially slippery Wild West outlaw. It was a pairing successful enough to prompt a sequel (“Shanghai Knights” in 2003), and now a sort of loose revamp in “Skiptrace.” But 16 years after “Noon,” the 62-year-old star’s boyish freneticism has finally succumbed to an understandable air of fatigue; it falls to new co-star Johnny Knoxville to take the majority of pratfalls, and supply the principal comic energy.

But then there’s energy to spare, if not much gray matter, in this amiable buddy action comedy wherein Chan’s straight-arrow Hong Kong cop is captor, then comrade to Knoxville’s genially slippery Yank con man. As directed by Renny Harlin, this Hk-u.S.-China co-production is a perpetual-motion-machine »

25 underappreciated family movies of the last 20 years

26 May 2016 8:09 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




From Flushed Away and Hunchback to Titan A.E. and Sky High - the family movies that don't get the love they deserve...

When I sit through a film such as Zootropolis, Rango, Frozen, Wreck-It Ralph, Eddie The Eagle or Coraline, I can’t help but be thankful somebody has bothered. As a parent as well as a movie lover, I’ve grown to really dislike family movies that just turn up to act as a surrogate babysitter for 90 minutes, with no intention of becoming anybody’s favourite film. The films I'm going to talk about are the family movies therefore that I think both try and do something a bit more, yet continue to fly under many people's radar. 

A bonus mention before we get going, and number 26 in the list, much to my surprise: Alvin & The Chipmunks 4. I was expecting next to zero from it, courtesy »
