Ray Stevenson, hot off of Thor, has gotten another gig that’s likely to get him an action figure – he’s playing a villain in GI Joe 2: Cobra Strikes by the name of Firefly. Not the most masculine supervillain name I’ve ever heard, but what are you gonna do? Ray Stevenson’s gotta eat too. I wouldn’t say this to Firefly’s face, though, since he’s described as “a saboteur, ninja master and explosives expert.” If there’s one thing I’ve learned in my life’s travels, it’s to never make fun of a ninja master’s name.

Stevenson is joining Channing Tatum, Dwayne Johnson, Adrianne Palicki, Elodie Yung, RZA and D.J. Cotrona, none of whom (except for Tatum) are returning from the first movie. This, friends, is what happen when a movie makes enough money to get a sequel, but is so hated by everyone that none of the original cast members want anything to do with it. It’s like The Brady Bunch of summer blockbusters. (The Hollywood Reporter)

Summit has released the trailer for Paul W.S. Anderson’s new explosion-y take on Th Three Musketeers, which is in 3D, of course. It stars Logan Lerman as D’Artagnan, and Matthew MacFadyen, Luke Evans and Ray Stevenson as the other three less diva-ish sword wielders. Couldn’t they just have remade this thing with Keifer Sutherland, Charlie Sheen, and Chris O’Donnell, the cast of the 1993 version? Those guys could use the work. Plus Sheen needs to get his “Winning” phrase in a movie before it goes completely stale. Oh wait, too late on that already?

The Three Musketeers in 3D swings into theaters October 14, 2011.

Review: Kill The Irishman http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-review/review-kill-the-irishman/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-review/review-kill-the-irishman/#comments Thu, 17 Mar 2011 21:35:45 +0000 Fred Topel http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=202270 If you end up watching it even on DVD, you won’t be bored.

If there’s a subject I’m interested in, I will watch any movie about it if there’s a chance it’ll be a good one. For me, it’s post apocalyptic survival movies. Some B-movie won’t top Book of Eli or I Am Legend but it may be enough for me. If ethnic mob biographies are your post apocalyptic survival movies, Kill the Irishman will be a pleasing discovery.

Danny Greene (Ray Stevenson) took over the Cleveland unions in the ‘70s and ran it his way. He was really a neighborhood hero for fixing things, but when his corruption was exposed, he was forced out of the union. He becomes a loan enforcer for Shondor Birns (Christopher Walken), stands up to the Italian mob and tries to start his own business. They don’t like that.

Greene is a badass. He open hand slaps city officials. He stands up to Shondor when he wants Greene to pay the Gambinos for money that was lost before it ever got to him. He fights a biker in the street.

The film looks bigger than a contained neighborhood story. The camera composes cinematic shots and sweeping setups. A point of view from a bullet holed windshield appears rather poetic.

The violence is thrilling. Writer/director Jonathan Hensleigh has some personal touches to make action thrilling, and the scale is ambitious. There’s a montage of 36 explosions. A house bomb rips the building apart with nuance, not just shards flying in a perfect blast radius.

If you’re not pre-hooked or a movie critic who’s going to watch it anyway, you probably won’t care that it has higher production value and technique than the made for TV versions of these type of stories. Irishman is in a few theaters in time for St. Patrick’s Day but really it’s for DVD. If you end up watching it, you won’t be bored.
