Crop And Save
Furious Seven (2015)
Everything is so predictable
Everything is so predictable in this movie. I was never a big fan of the Fast and Furious franchise but the more sequels they roll out the worse they get. There are scenes where everything falls apart around a character and after 5 minutes of buildings crumbling and debris falling all over, he gets up and has almost no scratch or bruise. If I go for 10 minutes trough a dense forest I get out of there with more cuts and bruises then the guys from this movie.
For every fight scene the characters uses brand new cars. It's like they have a warehouse full of cars and they can replace them just as fast as they trash. If I start to think about it, the amount of cars that have been crashed would value more then these guys could earn in a life time.
All in all, the action was predictable and kinda unrealistic but the cars are awesome!
Man of Steel (2013)
A decent representation of the Superman
It took me some time before I gathered the courage to go and see "Man of Steel". I expected to be disappointed by this movie, thinking is another representation of the already crowded Superman franchise.
The movie had great prospects based on the trailer. The note on IMDb kept around 7 for quite some time which was also a strong motive to go see it. In the beginning instead of focusing on the supernatural powers of Superman it tackles the emotional aspect. This emotional part together with the the history lesson from the beginning set the movie apart from other Superman movies I've seen. I really enjoyed finding more info about where Superman comes and what the S stands for.
I was quite impressed by the visual effects. I felt the producers put a lot of effort into creating very realistic visual effects. For example, when Superman learns how to fly, he passes trough a pack of animals in Africa and the pack actually splits in two.
Toward the end of the movie, the tone changes. The movie stats to look more and more like another Hollywood action movie with a lot of fights. By this time I was enough hooked by the movie to not get bored and survive to the end.
With over 2 hours, it's a long movie so if you watch it in theater be sure to not drink too much juice of water. Going to the bathroom in the middle of a fight scene really sucks :)
2 Guns (2013)
The movie is not predictive.
I didn't had high expectations from "2 Guns" but it turned out to be really good.
I had some problems with the tickets when I went to see the movie in the theaters but I'm glad it was all sorted out and I managed to see it. The main characters are full of humor. Even from first scenes they make you laugh. Amused by the funny scenes in the beginning, you soon tart to get hooked by the plot. More and more unexpected things start to reveal about each character and you find yourself soon wondering how would they get out of the mess they are in. The movie ends with a happy end, like any Hollywood production. What makes this movie stand apart from all the cops movies I've recently seen is the plot which is not so easily predictive .
I highly recommend it as a Sunday evening movie with your friends.
