Review by John Delia

Opening tomorrow in your living rooms is Villain a gritty crime thriller with a lot of disturbing violence. The movie does have some good directing, acting and a decent storyline so it should be considered for fans of extreme crime thrillers. What’s good is that the action stars early and gets very compelling so you won’t get bored. Read more…

“THE POST CARD KILLINGS” a Tricky Mystery

Review by John Delia

If you are looking for a good mystery with a few twists leading up to a surprise ending, then The Postcard Killings should do the trick. Taken from a “Best Seller” novel by James Patterson and Liza Marklund, the movie is nicely directed, well-acted and the production value looks high end. With not much to choose from due to the corona virus, the Blu-ray or DVD provides a good night of entertainment. Read more…

“BLOOD AND MONEY” Cold Cash

Review by John Delia

This crime drama gets too familiar too fast even if the setting and characters are reasonably original. Blood and Money takes the formula of “what would you do” if you came across a bag of cash from a bank robbery and no one was looking? It’s a premise that works well on paper, but in this case the timeline works against the character’s whereabouts and the consequences are expected and predictable. Read more…

“TRUE HISTORY OF THE KELLY GANG” Violent and Daunting

Review by John Delia

Vicious, cruel and daunting the film True History of the Kelly Gang follows a boy to man as he fights to survive a childhood and win over the respect for rights of the commoner. Not your everyday adventure, the movie gets into your head as young Ned Kelly deals with his family’s poverty, then switches gears for a fast take on Kelly’s determination to fight the government’s militia in order to avoid arrest. Well written, filmed and directed the movie character reminds me somewhat of a Jesse James. Read more…

“THE NIGHT CLERK” now on DVD

Review by John Delia

A twisted tale The Night Clerk is now available on DVD and it’s a stunner. The film should have audiences engrossed from the very start to its surprise finale. While all the clues are laid out for you before midpoint, the writer/director holds back just enough in this mystery to make the movie a winner. Acting is sharp and pin point, the direction strong and impeccable, and the credible protagonist in the plot makes for the perfect thriller. Read more…

Review by John Delia

Actually very good, the movie Clover takes you on a wild ride as two brothers and a young lady try to get themselves free from the mob. It’s very well made, has some excellent twists and it’s not only a thriller, but a bit comical as well. Once the action starts, it never ends until the last twisted scene. Now available on VOD.

“NO OFFENSE: COMPLETE COLLECTION” Crime and Comedy

March 1st, 2020 No comments

 

 

 

Review by John Delia

A snappy little comedy/drama No Offense reminds a bit of TV’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine, but with less humor and more action. The series has a lot of serious overtones with some excellent creative episodes that are compelling. The series will have you binging several chapters or even more if you have the time. The characters have love and hate changing attitudes throughout the 16.5 hours of police angst and power struggles. You’ll get to know the main players in chapter one of season one and follow them as they risk their lives, solve crimes, commit errors and find that love and job commitment do not go hand in hand.

“THE NIGHT CLERK” Murder with a Twist

Review by John Delia

The drama The Night Clerk takes aim at the box-office with a twisted tale that should have audiences engrossed from the very start to its surprise finale. While all the clues are laid out for you before midpoint, the writer/director holds back just enough in this mystery to make the movie a winner. Acting is sharp and pin point, the direction strong and impeccable, and the credible protagonist in the plot makes for the perfect character. Read more…

“Birds of Prey” A Kickass Fan Feast

Review by John Delia

One of the best films in recent past for action fans, Birds of Prey (And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) comes to the screen with a kickass movie that should please the pulp fiction fan base. It’s a follow up to DC Comics’ Suicide Squad for one of their characters, Harley Quinn, and the start of a probable spinoff series. In this episode it explains Harley Quinn’s past and her failing love life that had fallen apart when Joker decided to part ways. But, you can’t keep this wild DC Comic character down as you’ll find out in Birds of Prey. Read more…

“TRAUMA CENTER” Action Thrills

Review by John Delia

Not bad, but not great the Crime action thriller Trauma Center comes to Blu-ray, DVD and Digital HD. It starts out slow, but then takes you on a ride from alleys to the trauma center of a local hospital where most of the film takes place. If you are into crime flicks that draw out the suspense to the very end, than this one should do the trick. Read more…
