“Lucy” A Non-stop Action-thriller (Film Review)

POSTER lucy

 

Review by John Delia

Out of nowhere comes Lucy a wild ride of mind over matter from Writer/Director Luc Besson. This cunning thriller opens with excitement and never stops the action to the very end. It’s my idea of a true Sci-Fi thriller that tantalizes your brain with possibilities beyond belief, and then takes you even further with the question, What If?

The film poses the following premise: “The average person uses 10% of their brain capacity. Imagine what you could do with 100%”. Read more…

Review by John Delia

Review by John Delia

It’s a knock down drag out fight to the finish in The Raid 2: Berandal a chopsocky film that unleashes nearly every known hand-to-hand fighting method in a period of two and a half hours.  The action crime film takes the viewer on a gut wrenching ride reminiscent of Jet Li in The Enforcer.  A continuation of the 2012 release, the film drags a bit, but still delivers a knock-out punch.

A Brilliant Portrayal “Fruitvale Station” (Film Review)

FRUITVALE posterReview by John Delia

The true story of an incident that boggles the mind called Fruitvale Station makes a bleak statement on the excessive power of America’s police. Actual footage of the rancor that took place on New Year’s Eve 2008 in Oakland, California gives testimony to a growing problem that should be universally addressed in all phases of our justice system.  The must see film opens wounds that never seem to be healed.
