An impressive hardcore thriller that definitely stands out from the competition at ActionFest.
Even if this is the final version, it’s still a great highlight reel for newbies and veterans alike.
Focuses on the wave of films set in the Philippines and it’s ultimately the same story as any Roger Corman bio, but it’s a fun highlight reel.
The action is gory and bloody with great kill shots, and Paul Giamatti as the evil King John of England.
You won’t mind watching it because of Brand and Mirren, and Gerwig is sweet, but there’s nothing memorable or hilarious.
Definitely outstanding work for a first feature.
The basic idea of the story is familiar, but I’m always up for another “surviving the wasteland” adventure.
It could be funnier but it’s consistently pleasant.
The action is cool, the characters are memorable and it’s made in a clear, exciting way.
For any viewer fascinated by the storied heroes of modern-day crime sagas, the unique blood-soaked legacy of the House of Borgia is the ultimate incarnation of that mythos.

It sure is pretty, but man, it’s soooo boring.
I was not feeling the Christmas spirit on the SXSW Audience Award winning documentary.
I did not enjoy Kill List, and not because it’s offensive or upsetting. It’s because it’s phony.

A strong portrait of coping with depression. With a beaver.
