Well, cinema’s most treasured and resilient British spy guy is back as the legendary James Bond makes his twenty-fourth outing on the big screen in the highly anticipated and slickly-made ‘Spectre’.

Mission: Impossible-Rogue Nation (film review by Frank Ochieng).

Some over-stuffed blockbuster actioners boldly boast their explosive and invigorating productions with dynamic glee. Well, the ‘Mission: Impossible’ film franchise echoes this same sentiment, with flashy fifty-something star Tom Cruise still carrying that boyish exuberance that never seems to miss a beat, and can breathe a sigh of relief because the latest chapter will not disappoint in […]

3 Days To Kill (2014) (film review by Frank Ochieng).

Taken 2, film review (Frank’s Take).

Liam Neeson is out for blood yet again in the sequel ‘Taken 2′, a frenzied follow-up to the original 2008 spy actioner that starred the stoic Oscar-nominated actor. Neeson reprises his role as ex-CIA agent Bryan Mills whose entanglement with the bad guys goes through the chaotic motions in tedious, exaggerated fashion. Prolonged and strained, […]
