Kill Ratio – Review

Review by Stephen Tronicek

Kill Ratio is a poorly conceived Die Hard power fantasy that at moments finds itself looking fine, and being hilariously ridiculous. Seriously, if you want to see a Russian coup happen in a hotel that ends with an unbelievably apathetic hero fighting an old man with a sword, well then this movie is in fact for you, but Kill Ratio is too bland to be for anyone else.

Have you heard this story? A violent series of events has put a president (oddly not American in how nationalistic this movie is) in danger and it’s up to one man to fight his way through a couple of armed violent henchmen to save the president. So it’s Die Hard, Olympus Has Fallen, and White House Down, and it’s nowhere near as entertaining as two of those happen to be.

The problem is mainly with the protagonist,

The new action film “Kill Ratio” follows American covert operative James Henderson (Tom Hopper) who is on a business conference with his inexperienced colleague, Gabrielle (Amy Huberman) to bring capitalism to a newly democratized Eastern European republic. But soon the city is rocked by explosions and gunfire and it’s up to James and Gabrielle to hide president Tania Petrenko (Lacy Moore) from Colonel Lazar (Nick Dunning), an old guard military man and leader of a coup. James eventually realizes he and Lazar will have to battle it out for justice and supremacy. Watch an exclusive clip from the film below.

First Official Trailer for Action Film 'Kill Ratio' Starring Tom Hopper

"You are witnessing history today." XLrator Media has debuted a trailer for an indie action movie titled Kill Ratio, which looks like another formulaic action flick. The plot involves an American covert operative who becomes the one man who can save an entire country when a "ruthless military leader" attempts a coup. Tom Hopper (from "Black Sails", "Merlin" and Knights of Badassdom) stars, with Lacy Moore, Amy Huberman, Nick Dunning, Conor Hegarty, Brian McGuinness and Michelle Lehane. This looks particularly cheesy, especially considering it's another action movie that takes place inside of one building. The sword fight at the end nearly made me roll my eyes. I'm not expecting much from this, but who knows. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Paul Tanter's Kill Ratio, direct from YouTube: An attack on the new President of a fledgling Eastern European democracy pits an American covert operative (Tom Hopper) against

Da Vinci's Demons season 3 episode 5 review: Anima Venator

In season 3, Da Vinci's Demons is getting harder and harder to follow...

This review contains spoilers.

3.5 Anima Venator

Da Vinci's Demons has been kind of problematic for me throughout its third season thus far. It seems like everything is different, all the ideas of the first two seasons are just scrambled up to make everything a muddled, grey mess. Are the Sons of Mithras the bad guys? Are the Labyrinth bad guys? Sure, when you look at the surface, it's the bad guys like Carlo Medici and Riario involved in the Labyrinth and the Sons of Mithras have Leo's old ally Al-Rahim Aka The Turk (Alexander Siddig) and the true pope, Francesco (James Faulkner). However, one side is fighting to defend Italy and the other wide is actively assaulting and killing the people of the peninsula and by extension the Catholic Church.

Stuck in the middle are Florence and its famous son,

‘Quirke’ Episode 1: Christine Falls Review

Director: John Alexander

Screenplay: Andrew Davies

Starring: Gabriel Byrne, Michael Gambon, Geraldine Somerville, Aisling Franciosi, Nick Dunning

The BBC have taken some gambles on high profile detective dramas over the past few years. There was Zen with Rufus Sewell set in sumptuous Italy and Kenneth Branagh’s Wallander in a Sweden of buttery fields and bleak coastlines. The former died on its perfectly-formed backside and the latter took off but its star has a busy schedule. An initially unpromising setting of gloomy 1950s Dublin is the latest stalking ground for Quirke with Gabriel Byrne, and on this evidence there are the makings of a compelling saga with a few chunks of mystery thrown in for good measure.

Based on the books by Benjamin Black, Dr. Quirke is a pathologist, so ideally placed to be in the thick of a case, or at least follow in its aftermath and reawaken it as in tonight’s offering,

The First Churchills.

Kieran Kinsella

We’re all familiar with Winston but how many of us know much about The First Churchills? Well for those who don’t know, Britain’s war-time Pm traced his lineage back to the court of King Charles II, and the Duke and Duchess of Marlborough Aka The First Churchills. The cigar smoking nemesis of the Nazis wrote a biography of his aristocratic ancestors and in 1969 the BBC dramatized the story. The 12 part series was an instant success. Drama starved executives on the other side of the pond soon snapped it up and began airing it on PBS in a new time slot called Masterpiece Theatre. Yes British TV watchers, The First Churchills isn’t just about English history it is also a landmark series in the British invasion of American networks.
