This year’s offerings include Keanu Reese’s John Wick 3, Mads Mikkelsen’s Hobbs & Shaw, and Liam Neeson’s The Snowplow Driver. If you’re looking for a new superhero movie, this year’s choices are sure to please.
Liam Neeson’s The Snowplow Driver
In this Liam Neeson film, the snowplow driver saves his family’s life and gets a revenge-oriented job. But he also has to face a drug cartel that wants his daughter. Liam Neeson is one of the most versatile actors in Hollywood. The actor is also known for his starring role in Taken, which earned him an Oscar nomination. The Snowplow Driver is Neeson’s latest action movie. The movie is set for a February 8, 2019 release date.
Although The Snowplow Driver is set in Colorado, the actual shooting took place in Canada near Banff. In addition to filming in Colorado, the owners of the snowplow truck that the movie is based on became minor celebrities. So, if the snowplows in the movie are shot in Colorado, the snowplow driver can still claim a victory. But is it worth the risk?
This Liam Neeson movie is a revenge thriller with a dash of irreverent humor. It is a gripping action thriller with irreverent humor. Neeson plays Nels Coxman, a family man who seeks justice for the death of his son. He believes that the Viking drug lord is connected to his son’s death. As a result, he turns into a vengeful vigilante. Cold Pursuit is set for a February 8, 2019 release date.
Keanu Reese’s John Wick 3
Keanu Reese’s third action film is an uneven sequel to the first. While the opening act is exhilarating, the movie’s middle lacks suspense and intrigue, and devolves more on action than on its main characters. While “Wick 3” has a lot of promise, it ultimately falls flat. Though it has a soaring opening, it has a slow middle and a too-self-indulgent conclusion.
The action-packed sequel continues the plot of the first two, with the titular character on the run after being put on a bounty. It’s also a good time to talk about Reese’s inhuman physical appearance – he’s a jujitsu master who knows every martial art in the world, from Japanese judo to Southeast Asia’s silat to the American Glock.
The second movie follows the same plotline, with the story taking place in New York City. John Wick is still dealing with the death of his wife, and his dog, Daisy, has been killed by Russian mobsters. The first movie’s plot is similar to the second one, but it’s also less smart than the former. Still, the film is a great watch for action-movie fans who enjoy a good thriller.
The third movie in the “John Wick” series has reinvigorated the action genre. While most action movies suffer from cheap special effects and shaky camera movements, “John Wick: Chapter 3: Parabellum” is a thoroughly engrossing action movie. The cast includes Laurence Fishburne, Ian McShane, Lance Reddick, and Anjelica Huston. The movie is set to hit theaters on May 17, 2019.
Keanu Reese’s Terminator: Dark Fate
The first Terminator movie to star Arnold Schwarzenegger is back with a new sequel. While Dark Fate does not set the box office ablaze, it does take an interesting new direction and provides a biting jab at US immigration and border controls. The film also features new characters, such as Dani (Natalia Reyes) and Grace (Mackenzie Davis).
Despite its obvious limitations, this sequel to the iconic franchise is a fanboy’s dream. Schwarzenegger is the glue, as he takes us on a trip through time to fight the evil Skynet and another Terminator. There are some fantastic scenes, especially Schwarzenegger’s infamous roar at the end of the film’s credits. If you’ve seen the original, you’ll appreciate how far this sequel went beyond the original.
In contrast to the first Terminator movie, this sequel does not presuppose a sequel. While Terminator Salvation and Genisys were primarily designed around a sequel, Dark Fate focuses on the first Terminator film’s foundation. This approach is not uncommon for blockbuster films. And while there are some echoes of the original film, Dark Fate is still an excellent movie all on its own.
While remaking the classic Terminator movie series, Dark Fate takes a completely different approach. In the original movie, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s cyborg Terminator teamed up with Linda Hamilton’s Sarah Connor. This version of the Terminator saga is more aimed at new audiences than at existing fans. This film features more women than the original film, including Sarah Connor and her son.
Mads Mikkelsen’s Hobbs & Shaw
This Mads Mikkelsen action thriller follows a pair of ex-CIA agents: Brigham Young (Dwayne Johnson) and Jack Black (Jason Statham). Their mission is to save the world from a mysterious bio-threat and they do it by outrunning Brixton, a brilliant rogue MI6 agent (Gina Rodriguez). The story opens a new door in the Fast franchise, and it hurtles through London and Los Angeles with a sense of urgency and a touch of sex.
Despite being a hit, ‘Hobbs & Shaw’ has failed to make the $1 billion mark. The film was delayed until 2021 because of a COVID-19 pandemic. Despite the movie’s success, it is unlikely to earn $1 billion or rule the box office in its first run. In any case, Universal has made plans to produce a Hobbs & Shaw sequel.
After the massive success of Fast & Furious, the sequel has been hotly anticipated. Warner Bros. has poured money into the film and is not skimping on cast members. Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham are already back, and Mads Mikkelsen has a strong supporting role. In addition to Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham, the film also stars Vanessa Kirby, Eiza Gonzalez, and Cliff Curtis.
While the action-filled second half of the film is a welcome change, it lacks a certain luster. The film’s reliance on car culture meant that it lacked emotional stakes. It substituted a generic story. It also felt like it was copying a successful franchise, such as Mission Impossible and James Bond. With its lackluster plot and lack of emotional connection, it’s unlikely that Hobbs & Shaw will earn more money than that. Fortunately, there isn’t much competition for the rest of the month.
Jean-Claude Van Damme’s The Bouncer
After a long absence, Jean-Claude Van Damme returns to cinemas in The Bouncer, a gritty, action-thriller that is sure to earn praise from critics and audiences. The film is a surprisingly moving and thought-provoking thriller that shows Van Damme can still deliver an effective performance. A father’s love for his son is tested when he gets a violent encounter with a drunk patron. He then must go undercover to infiltrate a violent criminal gang to protect his family.
The Bouncer stars Van Damme and Sami Bouajila. Sveva Alviti and Kevin Janssens also star. The story centers on an aged bouncer who struggles to support his daughter and ties himself up with the criminal underworld. The film’s cast makes their presence felt in each scene. The film also makes use of stylistic flurries in camerawork and other visual aspects to create a video game-like atmosphere.
Aside from his iconic muscle sculpt, Van Damme is also a charismatic actor who gets better with age. In The Bouncer, he wears his age gracefully, giving off a more melancholy, worn-out face that makes him even more charismatic. Aside from that, Van Damme is a great actor, and his role in the film is a solid one.
Joaquin Phoenix’s Alita: Battle Angel
Director Robert Rodriguez’s sci-fi adventure, Alita: Battle Angel, will be released on February 14, 2017. It stars Joaquin Phoenix, Rosa Salazar, Christoph Waltz, Mahershala Ali, and Keean Johnson. The movie was originally announced for 2003, but was repeatedly delayed due to James Cameron’s work on Avatar. In April 2016, Rodriguez was announced as the film’s director. Soon after, Salazar was cast as the title character. In October 2016, production began at Rodriguez’s Troublemaker Studios in New York City. The film was released in February 2017.
Though sequels are all the rage these days, a film can stand alone. Disney, which has a good relationship with Fox, has already released two sequels for the studio, including The Book of Boba Fett and Home Sweet Home Alone. But the studio is still juggling its newly acquired IPs. However, it’s not impossible to imagine that Alien: Battle Angel will return to the small screen.
The film’s twist endings make it an interesting thriller. While most films have a predictable ending, Joaquin Phoenix’s Alien: Battle Angel twists the script in an unexpected way. In the first episode of the film, Merrill Hess is in his closet when the alien first comes on the screen. She backs up into her clothes, but a little too late.
