Action Thriller Movie Reviews
Jamie Foxx and Channing Tatum have quite a chemistry in White House Down. Our White House Down review finds that their pairing is the best thing the film has going for it.
Snitch Review: Dwayne Johnson Goes Undercover
Our Snitch review finds it possessing solid action, but delivered in such a heavy-handed way, the audience may not go for the ride. One joy to watch is how Dwayne Johnson plays a different sort of action hero in Snitch.
Parker Review: Crook With a Conscience
Any Parker review has to tell audiences that this film is what you see, what you get: A Jason Statham action movie. Sure, Parker has Oscar nominated director Taylor Hackford at the helm, but don't let that fool you... it's pure Statham sizzle.
Taken 2 Review: Double the Pleasure?
Taken 2 brings Liam Neeson back to the role that made him an action star in Taken in 2008. Unfortunately, our Taken 2 review finds the film a little less thrilling than its predecessor.
Resident Evil Retribution Review: Alice Attacks
Milla Jovovich and her Resident Evil director-creator husband are back at it in Resident Evil: Retribution. Our Resident Evil: Retribution review can say that although this is not a stirring-the-heart motion picture, it is ninety minutes of pure unadulterated fun.
Premium Rush Review: Does it Deliver?
Premium Rush moves fast, but doesn't come in first when it comes to action movies. The film starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt as a bike messenger certainly moves fast, but feels a little too empty.
Lockout Movie Review: The Guy Pearce Show
Lockout is a joy to watch, largely due to the performance of its star Guy Pearce. The Luc Besson-conceived story rivets around every turn, mostly because of Pearce.
Contagion Movie Review: Catch It!
Contagion is crafty in its way of showing how the world would react to a global virus. With Contagion stars Matt Damon, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jude Law directed by Steven Soderbergh, the film has sick promise.
Colombiana Movie Review: Riveting
Zoe Saldana becomes a star in Colombiana. Colombiana is a riveting tale from director Olivier Megaton and screenwriter Luc Besson.
