One-Sentence Movie Reviews (January 2008)

Once again, I offer up my one-sentence movie reviews for all to consume with your eyes.

EASTERN PROMISES Great, gory russian mafia film with an awesome naked knife fight scene.

WE ARE MARSHALL Director McG ditches Charlies Angels for a chance to tackle real drama in the form of The Thundering Herd and somewhat succeeds.

3:10 TO YUMA Great acting and a great screenplay make this one of the better westerns to come out in some time.

THIS FILM IS NOT YET RATED Film geeks will swoon at this movie aimed at the MPAA while everyone else will go 'meh'.

SHOOT 'EM UP It's Sin City mixed with early John Woo movies for a somewhat-fun ride filled with a shitload of body bags.

SUNSHINE Mix 2010 with Event Horizon and Outland and you've got this above-par science fiction movie from the director of Trainspotting and the writer of 28 Days Later.

THE BOURNE ULTIMATUM Just like Die Hard, The Fugitive, Predator and First Blood, this is one of those action films that transcends the genre (whatever that means) to make this arguably, one of the best trilogies of all time.

THE HEARTBREAK KID Although I hated the original, if you like the Farrelly Brothers you'll laugh at this remake, which could almost be considered a sequel to There's Something About Mary.

THE LOOKOUT Great cinematography, great acting and a solid script make this bank robbery film one of the surprise rentals of the year (so far).

HATCHET To quote The Simpson's Comic Book Guy, "Worst horror movie ever."

So, did I knock it out of the park or hit a foul ball?
