 Solace (2015) Reviews

Review: I quite enjoyed this deep, psychological thriller and it was good to see Hopkins back on the big screen but they could have done a bit more with the concept. Although the cast was quite good, Hopkins didn’t really push his performance and Farell didn’t get much screen time. With that aside, it’s intense throughout and the attention to detail made it watchable. Anthony Hopkins plays a psychic doctor (John Clancy), who has become a recluse, after losing his daughter to cancer 2 years ago. He then gets approached by his old work colleague, Agent Joe Merriweather (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), who needs his help to track down a serial killer. After turning down the opportunity, Joe’s partner, Agent Katherine Cowles (Abbie Cornish), leaves the case notes with John and when he finally has a look at the file, he decides to join the agents to hunt down the killer. After a few more murders, John follows the cryptic clues which lead to a man called Charles Ambrose (Colin Farell), who also has psychic abilities and is always 2 steps ahead of the agents. They soon work out that Ambrose is killing people with terminal illnesses, so he is basically putting them out of there misery, before they start to suffer with there disease. Regardless of his good intentions, he is still classed as a serial killer and when Joe dies of terminal cancer, John makes it his mission to stop Ambrose from killing anyone else. He then comes face to face with Ambrose on a train and he can foresee Katherine getting shot during there alteration, so he steps in front of the bullet and kills Ambrose on the spot. After recovering in hospital, John gets back with his wife after being away from her since his daughter passed away. A decent concept but you do have to be in the right mood to watch it because it’s quite depressing and the murders are brutal. Its also one toned and Hopkins seems to be in a zone of his own most of the time but I still got into the whole investigation side of the movie and I liked the way that Hopkins controlled his unique gift. It won’t go down as an all time classic like the Silence of the Lambs but it’s still a watchable movie which picks up once Farell comes face to face with Hopkins. Watchable!

Round-Up: Anthony Hopkins, 78, hasn’t really peaked since his Silence of the Lambs days but he is still highly respected in Hollywood, who has a unique style of acting. With a couple of TV movies in the pipeline along with Go With Me, alongside Ray Liotta, he’s not showing any signs of slowing down but there isn’t any big budget projects coming soon. This is the first major movie from director Afonso Poyart and he is lucky to direct such an experienced cast. I liked the chemistry between Hopkins, Morgan and Cornish and Farell played the baddie, convincingly but it still seemed like it was missing something.

Budget: NA Worldwide Gross: $18million

I recommend this movie to people who are into their mystery, thrillers starring Anthony Hopkins, Colin Farrell, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Abbie Cornish, Janine Turner and Marley Shelton. 4/10

Carefree (2016) Movie Reviews

Ranveer Singh and Vaani Kapoor play the roles of Dharam and Shyra respectively in the movie, who go on a dare to love adventure in the city of love, Paris. Ranveer Singh is a well known name in Bollywood with movies like Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela, Kill Dil and Bajirao Mastani among others, while Vaani Kapoor is lesser known with only three movies in her resume including Shuddh Desi Romance opposite Sushant Singh Rajput and a Tamil film Aaha Kalyanam with Befikre being the latest one. This movie looks like a promising step forward for her and can catapult her career as an actress. Both Ranveer and Vaani’s performances look a bit above mediocre, but as it is a comedy movie, it can be well understood that they had to act in a carefree way. The songs are composed by Vishal and Shekar, a music directing duo, who have made the music more for dance and enjoyment. A more mushy, love dovey, emotional song might be in there too, but we don’t know yet until the movie itself comes out and we go see it.

The movie’s been shot in 50 days with locations being the all familiar ones including the Sacre Coeur from where a full panoramic view can be taken of Paris including the rooftops (which I personally love looking at), River Seine (I think all the boat scenes are done there because there is no other river in Paris!!), Notre Damme (Where Vaani dares Ranveer to slap the police officer in order to go on a date with her), Latin Quarter (some filming might have been done there, including the songs), Louvre Museum (It’s just outside in the front of the museum where Ranveer is seen riding his bike in a semicircle) and a few of the iconic bridges including the world known Eiffel Tower (well, of course, without it there is no Paris).

The movie is releasing on 9th December, 2016. So, I think it should be watched for entertainment purposes. No idea how it will do on the Box Office in India, but people in Europe, France of course would love it. Thumbs up and fingers crossed!

The Accountant (2016) Movie Review

The Accountant (2016) Movie Review base on the movie online streaming – As a math savant uncooks the books for a new client, the Treasury Department closes in on his activities and the body count starts to rise.

Christian Wolff is a math savante with more affinity for numbers than people. Behind the cover of a small-town CPA office, he works as a freelance accountant for some of the world’s most dangerous criminal organizations. With the Treasury Department’s Crime Enforcement Division, run by Ray King, starting to close in, Christian takes on a legitimate client: a state-of-the-art robotics company where an accounting clerk has discovered a discrepancy involving millions of dollars. But as Christian uncooks the books and gets closer to the truth, it is the body count that starts to rise.

Despite his lofty position in the DC Cinematic Universe, Ben Affleck does indeed have time to work on projects that don’t require a cape or vigilante justice. Just take this trailer for The Accountant as an example, as he plays a math genius who has a taste for accounting… and vigilante justice. We swear, despite the joke we’ve just made, you’re in for a hell of a ride.

Thanks to Warner Bros, the trailer went out on YouTube this evening, and the rest is history. Affleck plays Christian Wolff, a “math savant” who basically takes his career as a CPA and turns it into a lucrative service for enterprising criminal organizations. At least, he did until he stumbled upon a dirty robotics company that has him and Anna Kendrick putting together a financial puzzle, and eventually running for their lives. Rounding out The Accountant’s impressive cast is Jon Bernthal, J.K. Simmons, Jeffrey Tambor, and John Lithgow.

In the mix of repetitive imagery, evolving storylines, and Radiohead’s “Everything In Its Right Place,” The Accountant slowly amps up the dread felt by the audience. The noise still crescendos to a mildly ear-splitting tone that most other films would cap off their trailers with, but the choice to end it all with the repeating drumming of Ben Affleck’s fingers makes for a nice touch. One would hope that Gavin O’Connor’s direction of the film is being reflected in this choice, as the financial drama looks like it’ll balance gunshots with tax returns in proper fashion. Then again, this is a very limited tease at the events of The Accountant, so anything can happen between now and the next trailer.

The Accountant (2016) Movie Trailer

The Accountant looks like one of those Ben Affleck movies that the man himself could have directed, had he not already been busy with playing Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, or directing his second Dennis Lehane adaptation, Live By Night. Scheduling aside, the partnership between Ben Affleck and Warner Bros looks like it’s a most fruitful one, as this film looks like a cross between a detective novel and a financial thriller. If there were a way we could see this one tomorrow, we’d already be ordering tickets.

The Accountant is going to audit some very bad people on October 14th.
