The Take (2016) a.k.a. Bastille Day (original title)

This is good this, Idris Elba, Richard Madden, Charlotte Le Bon.

Idris Elba is looking like he's in a lot of films these days, I've always liked his performances and he does good with this.

Richard Madden is annoyingly smarmy at first, but better later.

Set in Paris, with CIA and corrupt police and terrorism and action.

Very good

Well worth a watch.

Killer Elite (2011) - Based on a true story - from a book by Ranulph Fiennes - The book tells the story of four British Army soldiers, including two members of the Special Air Service, who are assassinated by a hit squad known as "The Clinic". The murders are carried out over a 17-year period, on the orders of a Dubai sheikh whose three sons were killed by British forces in Oman during a battle with Communist guerrillas.

Jason Statham, Clive Owen, Robert De Niro

Good, better than average Movie

Well worth a watch, despite Statham.

The Guard (2011) - Easily paced Copper in Ireland.

With the right attitude towards days off and ladies for hire, Teams up with visiting FBI fella and busts a drug ring.

Brendan Gleeson, Don Cheadle, Mark Strong .

Whats not to like? Well worth a watch.

Hangman [2017]

Mediocre at best serial killer thriller with the Hangman game theme is formulaic and full of holes. What was Pacino thinking playing second fiddle the bland Karl Urban in this dross? Should be a Raspberry award contender.

Last Flag Flying [2017]

Well made US road trip of three Vietnam War vets back together after 30 years to bury one if their own sons killed in the more recent Iraqi war. A mix of opinions on war and patriotism with some very funny moments make for a memorable movie now out in very watchable Dvd screener format at the moment.
