ID2: Shadwell Army review – belated sequel rehashes hooligan yarn

11 August 2016 1:45 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Two decades on from Phil Davis’s original, this humdrum sequel of sorts again follows a police officer undercover among the East End’s misbehaving matchgoers

In 1995, actor Phil Davis, perhaps best known for his work with Mike Leigh and a turn in Alan Clarke’s The Firm, directed ID – like The Firm an admirably beady yet brutal look at football hooliganism as seen through the eyes of an undercover cop. Twenty-one years later, here comes this sequel of sorts, which shares little with its predecessor apart from screenwriter Vincent O’Connell, a cameo from Perry Fenwick (EastEndersBilly Mitchell) and a similar premise, updated for 2016. Once again, a policeman infiltrates the followers of fictitious London club Shadwell to uncover ties to far-right factions and the criminal underworld. The twist is that this time the hero (Simon Rivers) is himself of Pakistani descent, although he’s posing to the gang as a Sikh, »

The Musketeers series 3 episode 8 review: Prisoners Of War

22 July 2016 10:38 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Rob Kemp Jul 23, 2016

All the places are coming together for what promises to be an exciting finale to The Musketeers series 3...

This review contains spoilers.

3.8 Prisoners Of War

So we’re finally into the home stretch of the last season. This has to be the point at which The Musketeers will either make good on its past successes or fade away as another BBC also-ran. The season hasn’t quite been as strong as the last, but then it's by no means been a failure. A slight slump in the middle hasn’t overshadowed some great character work by the show’s regulars as well as some excellent work by some of the newcomers.

Prisoners Of War is an episode of two stories, one continuing the Musketeers’ chase for Grimauld and the threat against Paris from Louis’ death, and the other, the return of Milady and the more intimate danger she poses to our heroes. »

The Musketeers series 3 episode 7 review: Fool's Gold

Rob Kemp Jul 17, 2016

The Musketeers encounter a village of war widows in this solid series three instalment...

This review contains spoilers.

3.7 Fool's Gold

Following last week’s Death Of A Hero was always going to be a tough ask.

It’s interesting to see down which route The Musketeers went – keep up and maintain the pressure until the end, or have a breather and then go all-out for the remaining three episodes. Certainly, Fool's Gold went for the latter course (presuming that the last three episodes do indeed go hell for leather!), but that’s not to say that this is lesser Musketeers – in fact it’s a highly enjoyable episode whose place in the series seems perfectly right. I’m sure not all of you will agree, as the momentum from last week was significant, but I have my reasons…

First and foremost, it’s fitting that a story »

Unused Apocalypse concept art from X-Men: Apocalypse

2 July 2016 3:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

A couple of weeks ago we brought you some comic book faithful concept art for Apocalypse from this year’s X-Men: Apocalypse [see here], and now we have a look at some more unused designs for Oscar Isaac’s villain, with Jared Krichevsky sharing the following artwork to Twitter showing En Sabah Nur with and without a space helmet…

Following the critically acclaimed global smash hit X-Men: Days of Future Past, director Bryan Singer returns with X-men: Apocalypse. Since the dawn of civilization, he was worshipped as a god. Apocalypse, the first and most powerful mutant from Marvel’s X-Men universe, amassed the powers of many other mutants, becoming immortal and invincible. Upon awakening after thousands of years, he is disillusioned with the world as he finds it and recruits a team of powerful mutants, including a disheartened Magneto (Michael Fassbender), to cleanse mankind and create a new world order, over which he will reign. »

Filming on the The Hatton Garden Job movie underway

23 June 2016 2:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

You may recall last year that a very odd robbery took place which saw £14 million (though estimated at £200 million) worth of jewels stolen from London’s Hatton Garden Vault, where the collective ages of the four ringleaders came to 278 years. Well, now Signature Entertainment have secured the UK distribution rights for a movie adaptation of the robbery, with filming now underway in and around London.

The Hatton Garden Job picks up with a mysterious thief, who is presented with an opportunity to take down the exclusive Hatton Garden Vault just days after leaving prison. It’s an old school job, requiring old school skills. With real life twists and turns as though written for a movie, The Hatton Garden Job follows our convict recruiting a team of veteran British criminals all eager for one final chance at glory. Together they must stay ahead of the law, dodge hired mercenaries and »

The Conjuring 2, 2016.

Directed by James Wan.

Starring Patrick Wilson, Vera Farmiga, Madison Wolfe, Frances O’Connor and Simon McBurney.

Synopsis:

Lorraine and Ed Warren travel to north London to help a single mother raising four children alone in a house plagued by malicious spirits.

Following up 2013’s supremely chilling The Conjuring was always going to be a difficult task but James Wan has managed to deliver an intensely scary piece of film that is nearly as good as the first.

Opening in arguably one of the most famous haunted houses ever; we find Ed and Lorraine Warren attempting to contact spirits at Amityville. Within the first ten minutes The Conjuring 2 manages to deliver edge of your seat scares, coupled with phenomenal direction from Wan. We see Lorraine (Farmiga) walking through the Amityville property, carrying out the crimes that have become so famous. It’s well acted and a »
