A huge international box office success for South Africa

Reviewed by on

Filmed in and around the tourist resort of Sun City, this was a partly foreign funded sequel of sorts to the earlier Karate Olympia a.k.a. Kill & Kill Again with much the same cast playing essentially the same characters, if one forgets that James Ryan’s character in the first film was called ‘Steve Hunt’ and then called ‘Steve Chase’ in this one. Broad comedy and very well executed stunts and fight arranging are the order of the day and the one with the best lines is the late, pioneering South African actor Ken Gampu as the unfortunately named Gorilla, an ex-wrestler who cannot stand officious bosses, too tight shirts and engaged aircraft toilets. Another international box office success for South Africa which grossed enough money to find itself almost at the top of Variety’s box – office champions for 1981.

This wasn't a good experience

Reviewed by on

For all the things this film got wrong, it still had some entertainment value. Unfortunately, if you've seen any other Marvel movie, there is no doubt that this one is the weakest of the lot. From poor writing to uninspired action and countless plot holes, the film was a let down. My biggest issue was character motivations and developments... There were none. It was just a big shiny waste of time. Great special effects don't make a good movie. Also worth noting, it is the last time we will see a Stan Lee cameo... And I loved his cameo in this one. It was the one thing that didn't have me rolling my eyes into the back of my head. As a collector of the marvel films, I'll be buying it for the cameo alone. No other reason to watch it again.

Reviewed by on

David Jason, known to many for Only Fools & Horses, but even better in the Touch of Frost series, is an excellent British actor, and perfect in the prequel to Dickens : David Copperfield, about the man who is always optimistic, always in debt, yet somehow always manages to survive. Gentle humour, and never dull. Pity this show wasn't extended to a second series, as one can see many promising plot lines starting here

Naomi Watts tried hard, but

Reviewed by on

What a terrible film: Diana is presented as a lovesick, neurotic, needy, whiny attention seeker whose adulterous husband only wanted to use her as a breeding oven for an heir and a spare. Having said that, the real William and Harry were and are more than an heir and spare who carry on their Mom's legacy but this film: eish.

Even Diana's clothes look like "fong-kong" rip-offs: the only good part of this film is where the world wakes up to realize that Princess Diana has been murdered and the people's reaction to this tragic event and their anger with the absolute silence from the Queen and the rest of the Firm.

The other good part of this is the end of the film where someone mercifully switches off the projector.

Almost put me off watching films forever

Reviewed by on

Yes, I was six (1973) but even then I knew how insanely bad this thing was. It was only thanks to my parents taking me to see Murder On The Orient Express a year later which got me bitten by the film bug. If Lost Horizon was the only film I ever saw, I would never love films as much as I do and always have.

Final thought: avoid and please don't pay R432 for such a bad movie: rather buy a good meal and go see a good movie.

I remember being so angry back in 1997

Reviewed by on

Several things: The Queen keeping silent for so long and only speaking under immense pressure - one of the newspapers then had a headline saying YOUR PEOPLE ARE SUFFERING! SPEAK TO US, MA'AM and the Afrikaans language newspaper Beeld [image] having only one word in its' headliine: STOMGESLAAN [dumbstruck].

Those were terrible days indeed: the world lost a treasure and even people who didn't like her were sad she had passed.

Rest in power, my Princess.

There is light!

Reviewed by on

Overall, I am not a big fan of DC movies, but must say: they did something right with this one (especially the humor and the Marvel jokes). DC movies are generally very dark, but this one - Teen Titans Go! to the Movies - brings some much needed "light" tot the DC cinematic universe. Hence, to my surprise, I might actually enjoy this one more than the kids...

IMO, Reynolds takes too much screen-time in this, and the other characters are not well-developed enough.
As a Blu-Ray, this is a good buy for the uncut version, which gives more scenes and the usual bonus stuff

One of the best comic book performances from both Hugh Jackman as Logan, and Patrick Stewart as Professor X (kind of spoilerry(?))
Anyway, this has to go down as one of the best X-Men movies, comic book movies and all-round character performances out there.
A special treat was the Noir version, beautifully rendered in black and white. It gives the film a whole new dynamic
