Review:

If you managed to watch The Man with the Iron Fist 1, just leave it there and don’t even bother considering watching 2.

Movie was over before it began, there was some resemblance of a storyline, but it was just horrible.

Barely any action in it, until almost at the very end, and the acting was really bad.

This movie is on the list of movies that should not be mentioned again.

Review:

I am going to go on record and say that if you didn’t read the Fifty Shades book series, then this movie is a decent erotic movie, that will get your blood pumping during a few of its more edgy scenes.

If however you read the books then I understand a lot of the terrible reviews this movie has gotten, but I shall say that the imagination is the greatest movie maker you have, so shut up.

I found this movie to be a bit weird, mainly because I read the books and then watched the movie.

For me the movie was “so-so” a few of the scenes were how I had imagined them to be, and I already knew what they were going to say, so I didn’t particularly enjoy it. But if you have someone special who is open enough to watch this movie with you, you’re going to enjoy it.

And for a final note, if a book you have read gets turned into a movie…. It is never going to measure up to your expectations.

Review:

I was actually surprised when I found out that they had made another Taken movie.

This time however, the guy’s ex-wife gets killed due to a bad business deal by her current husband, and he gets framed for it.

So he is running from the police, while solving a murder and clearing his name, and also exacting sweet vengeance.

Truth be told, movie doesn’t have much of a storyline to, but it has a good bit of action scenes, so it is watchable, just not re-watch worthy.
