Movie Review – The Antwerp Dolls (2016)

19 June 2016 1:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Antwerp Dolls, 2016.

Directed by Jake L. Reid.

Starring Jason Wing, Courtney Winston, Sean Cronin, Sebastian Foucan and Bruce Payne.

Synopsis:

A ruthless businessman’s payoff to the Belgian mafia is intercepted by his revenge-seeking former protegees, launching a deadly war of violence and double-dealing…

Another peculiar sub-genre of recent years appears to have been the Cockney gangster movie, and The Antwerp Dolls is another aborted love child of the stylish, profane swagger of Guy Ritchie and uber-violent crime stylistics of Quentin Tarantino. Low budget, low brow and barely with any redeeming features, the directorial debut of Jake L. Reid should be forgotten with far quieter grace than how loudly it proclaims itself throughout the relatively thin running time, which by the way feels twice the length. All the way through, you really get the feeling this is cinema made for the kind of mindless thugs causing carnage across France »

‘The Antwerp Dolls’ Review

29 April 2016 8:41 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Jason Wing, Bruce Payne, Sean Cronin, Sabastien Foucan, Terrence Anderson, Danny Cutler | Written and Directed by Jake. L. Reid

Love them or hate them, low-budget British crime and gangster films will never die. I know some see these types of films as guilty pleasures, but I have a genuine soft spot and overall appreciation for them. They can’t all be winners (I’m looking at you Full English Breakfast!), every now and then you get a film like Age of Kill or Orthodox. When the snobs cry about these films being mindless or silly, they seem to forget that no matter how good or bad the film in question is, it’s a great way for talented people to begin a career in the world of film. Maybe people should stop complaining about how much Robert Downey Jr. makes in his Marvel outings and maybe focus their energy »

25 great action films that are 90 minutes or under

Want a quality action film, but you only have an hour and a half? Step this way...

Looking back over the genre, action films definitely haven’t suffered from the trend to make everything longer. They’ve always been pretty long, regularly clocking in at over two hours. Perhaps because of all the slo-mo? But while the sweet spot for action classics seems to be the 100-110 minute mark, there are those that have cut the genre right down to basics, and succeeded all the more for it.

Below is my pick of 25 great action films 90 minutes or under. Even more so than other genres, action crosses many other films - picking a pure ‘action’ flick is all but impossible. So below I’ve chosen films that retain action sequences as their main narrative device, and keep the action at the heart of the movie, rather than as a extra. »
