Venice Review: ‘Dragged Across Concrete’ Ushers in a Tamer S. Craig Zahler

Anyone transfixed by the hyper-stylized meathead triumph of blood and violence of Brawl in Cell 99 should be warned. Dragged Across Concrete, S. Craig Zahler’s third feature, is comparatively much tamer than his 2017 prison drama. But where the new entry lacks in bloodshed and bone-splintering violence, it still confirms Zahler’s penchant for complicated characters, and conjures up a bad cops action movie which, despite blips in tension and a second half far superior to the first, crystallizes Zahler’s as a key name to watch for lovers of the genre.

The two bad cops are detectives Brett Ridgeman (Mel Gibson) and Anthony Lurasetti (Vince Vaughn). Ridgeman is a few weeks away from turning 60, yet still holds the same rank he had at 27; Lurasetti is 20 years younger and struggling to rise up the ranks of the city’s police department, but promotions and raise prospects fade out after a video

Venice Film Review: Mel Gibson in ‘Dragged Across Concrete’

Venice Film Review: Mel Gibson in ‘Dragged Across Concrete’
If you’re out to criticize “Dragged Across Concrete,” the latest supersized exploitation opus from writer-director S. Craig Zahler, on charges of gratuitously provocative violence, misogyny, racial discourse or the mere presence of right-wing firebrand Mel Gibson in the lead, know that the film issues a preemptive retaliation in its own script. “I don’t politick and I don’t change with the times,” spits Gibson’s bent, brusque cop Ridgeman, after being disciplined for using excessive force on a perp. “And it turns out that sh-t’s more important than good, honest work.” Thirty years on from the bad-cop hijinks of “Lethal Weapon,” Gibson’s now the one who’s too old for said sh-t, though Ridgeman and Murtaugh, Danny Glover’s weary detective from that 1987 smash, would probably define the grind of their job very differently.

Zahler’s film places a lot of these wink-wink reactionary assertions in

It seems that Baron Von Strucker is set for a return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe for guest appearance in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., although unlike Agent Phil Coulson, the Hydra villain won’t be coming back from the dead.

‘Tad The Lost Explorer’ & The Mythological Locations in Film

Mythical cities and locations have intrigued historians, scientists and humankind for centuries. Did they exist? Where did these stories come from? Well, whether we’ve found any real-life evidence related to these legendary locations, films have explored these in great depth over the years. One such film is Tad the Lost Explorer and the Secret of King Midas; Midas was a revered king in Greek mythology in which he had the power to turn everything he touched to gold. To celebrate the release of the film in cinemas on the 9th February we’ve looked at movies that include some of these widely speculated wondrous locations.

Atlantis: The Lost Empire

“…in a single day and night of misfortune, the island of Atlantis disappeared into the depths of the sea.” Maybe one of the more famous mythical locations in history, Atlantis was first introduced to us by Plato in his Timaeus and Critias works.

Review: ‘Stratton’ is a Soapy Actioner Built Solely on Tropes

It must have been a tough blow to see the newly minted Man of Steel bow out of a project that potentially had franchise capabilities five days before shooting was to commence, but that’s exactly what happened when Henry Cavill left Stratton over “creative differences.” I have to give him credit for doing so, though, since interviews circa late 2014 have him sounding pretty excited about the prospects of bringing to life a book series (written by former Special Boat Service commando and current pseudonym Duncan Falconer) of which he seemed a genuine fan. You have to then wonder if Falconer’s own adaptation was the issue or that from Warren Davis II. Whoever’s to blame, the final result confirms Cavill’s decision. There’s little here to conjure any excitement.

Director Simon West opens the film with a frame of text equating the UK Sbs with Navy SEALs,

‘Stratton’ Blu-ray Review

Stars: Dominic Cooper, Gemma Chan, Connie Nielsen, Tom Felton, Tyler Hoechlin, Derek Jacobi, Austin Stowell, Thomas Kretschmann | Written by Warren Davis II, Duncan Falconer | Directed by Simon West

Directed by Simon West (Con Air), this British spy thriller clearly fancies itself as the basis of a lucrative action franchise in the Bond or Bourne mould. Unfortunately, the action is decidedly sub-par and the central character is as dull as dishwater, which doesn’t bode well for its chances of future instalments.

Based on a series of novels by former Special Boat Service commando Duncan Falconer (who co-wrote the screenplay), Stratton centres on pint-sized Sbs commando John Stratton (Dominic Cooper), who’s tasked with capturing evil Russian agent Grigori Barovsky (Thomas Kretschmann), before he unleashes a deadly terror attack on central London. The mission has a personal edge for Stratton, as Barovsky is the man responsible for the death of his former partner,

New Us Trailer for British Action Movie 'Stratton' with Dominic Cooper

"So what's the deal with Stratton? What's he like?" Momentum Pictures has debuted an official Us trailer for the British action movie titled Stratton, starring Dominic Cooper as a British Special Boat Service commando named Stratton who tracks down an international terrorist cell. From the director of Con Air and The Mechanic, this movie is also known as Stratton: First Into Action and opened in the UK back in September. The name "First Into Action" comes directly from the book that this is based on, a "Dramatic Personal Account of Life in the Sbs." The film's full cast includes Connie Nielsen, Tom Felton, Tyler Hoechlin, Gemma Chan, Thomas Kretschmann, Derek Jacobi, and Austin Stowell. It seems like Momentum is dumping this in January, and it doesn't look like it's really that good, mostly heavy on action. Here's the new official Us trailer (+ old UK poster) for Simon West's Stratton,
