*NEW* ATOMIC BLONDE REVIEW *NEW*

Charlize Theron kicks just enough ass to make this a little more than a generic actioner. An undercover MI6 agent (Theron) is sent to Berlin during the Cold War to investigate the murder of a fellow agent and recover a missing list of double agents. The slow opener didn't build up high hopes as it … Continue reading *NEW* ATOMIC BLONDE REVIEW *NEW*

*NEW* THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. REVIEW *NEW*

Slick, cool, funny. Guy Ritchie is back with a bang! In the early 1960s, CIA agent Napoleon Solo (Henry Cavill - Man of Steel) and KGB operative Illya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer - The Lone Ranger) participate in a joint mission against a mysterious criminal organization, which is working to proliferate nuclear weapons.

*NEW* BRIDGE OF SPIES REVIEW *NEW*

I spy a cracking little drama.

*NEW* KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE REVIEW *NEW*

From the people who brought you Kickass. You should know what to expect. A riotous action flick of ridiculous proportions. More please. A spy organization recruits an unrefined but promising street kid (Taron Egerton) into the agency's ultra-competitive training program, just as a global threat emerges from a twisted tech genius (Samuel L Jackson). Kingsman hooked me … Continue reading *NEW* KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE REVIEW *NEW*

*NEW* SPECTRE REVIEW *NEW*

Bond is back but bigger and better? Well done, Mr Craig. You have finally won me over. To be honest, I loved his first outing in Casino Royale (my favourite in the Craig era). He had the charm, the one liners and the look. Ticking all the boxes. BUT Quantum of Solace delivered a much … Continue reading *NEW* SPECTRE REVIEW *NEW*

SPY REVIEW

I Spy a surprisingly entertaining comedy. A desk-bound CIA analyst (Melissa McCarthy) volunteers to go undercover to infiltrate the world of a deadly arms dealer (Rose Byrne), and prevent diabolical global disaster. McCarthy takes on the spy genre and it's everything you could expect. If you're a fan, that is. I love McCarthy. The Heat … Continue reading SPY REVIEW

SPOOKS: THE GREATER GOOD REVIEW

One of the best British dramas takes to the silver screen? Was it needed? Did it succeed? Or should the BBC have let old dogs lie? I won't hide my bias. I am a huge Spooks fan. It came around the same time as 24, managed to stand its own, and became one of my favourite … Continue reading SPOOKS: THE GREATER GOOD REVIEW
