‘Age of Kill’ Review

17 June 2015 4:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Martin Kemp, Dexter Fletcher, Nick Moran, Tony Denham, Phil Davis, Lucy Pinder, Donna Air, April Pearson, Dani Dyer, Bruce Payne, Patrick Bergin, Nick Moran, Chris Brazier, Anouska Mond | Written by Simon Cluett | Directed by Neil Jones

When it comes to low-budget British movies one of the easiest to create seems to be the gangster movie and I’ll admit it that when I got Age of Kill to watch that is exactly what I expected. Thankfully what I found instead was an action movie that takes the subject of terrorism in London and adds a little twist.

Sam Blake (Martin Kemp) is a black ops sniper who finds himself blackmailed into killing six seemingly random people in six hours. If he fails this or tries to contact the police or his bosses his daughter will be killed. As he performs the kills with the police in close pursuit the »

Age of Kill review – will disappoint the most undiscerning viewer

14 June 2015 12:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

This naff remake of Nick of Time is blessed with an obvious plot, ear-scraping dialogue and some toilet stranglings

“These Asian geezers from across the water – proper naughty they are!” And we’re back. From the bargain-basement-Bond titles with which it opens to the “2-for-a-fiver” DVD shelf to which it is heading, this geezer-tastic schlocker “from the makers of Vendetta” will disappoint even the most undiscerning viewer. Phil Davis is the gruff special-ops commander who leads Martin Kemp’s sniper through an opening shoot-to-kill mishap. Next thing, Kemp finds himself in a naff remake of Nick of Time (the trailer prefers “24 meets Taken”) – ordered to execute six people in six hours by an anonymous caller whose identity is so clear it took me some time to realise I wasn’t meant to know it. Shootings, bombings and toilet stranglings ensue, while people pretending to be policemen tackle dialogue so ear-scraping »

Down Dog review – witless willy-waving comedy

12 February 2015 1:00 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Jason Durr’s sex-toy selling exec is given months to live and change his ways in this raggedy mess

One of the three credited writers for Down Dog is Men Behaving Badly creator Simon Nye, and there’s an obvious overlap between that show and this only mildly amusing feature about a hard-partying sex-toy executive (Jason Durr) who changes his ways when he’s tricked into thinking he has a terminal disease. It may be an “original” plot, but it feels like a remake, perhaps of some lost German or Dutch comedy that was a lot funnier, dirtier and crueller than this raggedy, eventually soppy mess. There is one energetic, well-timed comic highlight, when our hero and his slimy boss (Nick Moran) chuck vibrators and dildos at each other in anger, and it’s sort of a cute idea that all the major women in the lead’s life are »

Out of options and with no one to turn to, Blake is forced to carry out their evil bidding and must assassinate six seemingly random targets within six hours on the streets of London.
