What should I be doing instead of this?

Takers (Review)

Crime thriller just another inferior exercise in genre stylings

0 Comments · Tuesday, August 31, 2010
The new crime thriller from co-writer/director John Luessenhop shares narrative DNA with 'Heat' in that it focuses on a high-end heist crew. If only the producers had the crew do more than strike pretty poses as a means of defining their characters. Grade: D.  

The Losers (Review)

Entertaining performances try to distract audience from feeling they've seen this story many times before

I realize there's an 'A-Team' movie set to be released this summer, but after catching 'The Losers' I'm thinking I've pretty much got that ground covered. Yes, this is the story of a group of highly skilled U.S. military operatives framed for a crime they didn't commit and out to clear their names. You've gotta love it when a plan comes together, but you don't necessarily have to love the way it comes together. Grade: C.  

Obsessed (Review)

Tedious thriller is too tame

Derek Charles (Idris Elba) is a successful investment banker with a beautiful wife (Beyonce Knowles) and a young son. His wife was his assistant, and everyone points out his history as a single player around the office, but he points out at every turn that he has retired his jersey happily thanks to the love of his good woman. Grade: F.
