The Gunman, the gunman movie, the gunman movie review
Movie review: The Gunman

‘The Gunman’ is about a killer, a political assassination, some regrets, lots of deaths across two continents, a love story, and most improbably, the effects of head trauma.

run all night, run all night movie, run all night movie review

Run All Night doesn't do as well with the relationship between Jimmy and Michael, though Kinnaman is efficient enough.

Maybe the intention of 'Barkhaa' was to tell us that ladies who dance for a living also have the right to respectability but a mothballed plot and an even more mothballed treatment isn’t the way forward.

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel movie review

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel' has little in terms of a story except a wedding, and Richard Gere. The wedding involves engagement, sangeet, and the shaadi itself.

insurgent, insurgent movie review

With all the justifications of this post-acolapyse world dealt with in the first film, 'Insurgent' purely involves three women who are making the world around them spin.

hunterrr, hunterrr movie review

‘Hunterr’ could have been a genuinely ‘adult’ comedy of manners, but it stays right where it begins, the phrase ‘coming-of-age’ functioning more as eliciting an embarrassed titter than reaching the goal-post.

THE most surprising part of Chappie, by Academy Award-nominee Blomkamp, is that Hugh Jackman plays second fiddle to Dev Patel.

It's hard to say who has gained in the process, Focus or the Censors.

NH10 movie review: It’s not that Anushka Sharma, who has also produced the film, is not trying hard. She is, and up to a point, she is in fine fettle.

The Coorg countryside is quite lovely, and the coffee plants surrounding the homestead give off a thick leafiness. But the characters never quite look as if they belong.

The filmmaker’s challenge is to keep us with his lads, without being overcome with a feeling of familiarity.

Ostensibly this is a film which is supposed to put the spotlight on how politics is the preserve of perverts and goons

kingsman, kingsman review

Kingsman is just English in manners. Rest is a hotch-potch of blood, gore and some guiltily enjoyable acting (including by newbie Egerton).

The beginning of Nana Patekar's 'Ab Tak Chhhapan 2' is promising, but the film soon palls.

‘Dum Laga Ke Haisha’ knows where it’s coming from, and where it wants to go.

whiplashmovierevi490

It's a film with only "greatness" in its sights, unflinching of drawing blood and blows -- and its share of Fletchers.

The movie tells Cheryl's story in flashbacks that go back and forth and sometimes are even just visual images.

'Qissa' review: The Irffan Khan, Tillotama Shome film is lambent, lovely, and completely seductive.

The story about a bride who feels cheated and has her revenge at own wedding is an emotional roller-coaster.

Roy movie review; I haven’t seen something as fuzzy and dreary as ‘Roy’ in a long time : just what is Ranbir Kapoor doing in a movie like this?

MSG: The Messenger Of God - The 'film' is long and excruciatingly awful only for non-believers. For his adoring followers, each scene is a super-hit.

'Shamitabh' has a few moments which sparkle, and we laugh in acknowledgement. But the rest of it is overpowered by unabashed reverence.

Teachers with teenage sons who dress equally sparingly are not to be taken lightly either.

Leigh and his director of photography do a seamless job of translating paintings onto screen and vice-versa.

theboynextdoor209

There is murder and surprising amount of gore, car crashes and knife-wielding, but none of the brewing sexual tension.

Mr. Turner can appear disjointed at times, with episodes moving in and out of view with no real connection to the main story.

'Yennai Arindhaal' is the evolved story of police officer Sathyadev, who strives hard to strike a balance as a family man as well.

Miller’s film is an interesting look at the high ideals of the Olympics and the low means that sometimes make it possible.

Its is an attempted mish-mash of a crime-of-coiled-passion- cum-police procedural, the confusion only serving to confound.

A lonely cottage, a beautiful girl, a fresh-faced fellow wrapped in a bunch of sufi-suffused songs which have already captured the airwaves.

For a film that is about the joy of flying, ‘Hawaizaada’ fails to take off from frame one, failing to sprout any wings.
