Kick-Ass follows an ordinary teenager (played by Aaron Johnson) whose obsession with comic books turns dangerous when he decides to become an actual life superhero and adopts the name 'Kick-Ass. 'The movie puts key studio, huge-budgeted action movies to shame, with director Matthew Vaughn delivering spectacular fight scenes and huge action set pieces. Kick-Ass also delivers seriously graphic action.The fact a great deal of one of the most vicious action scenes entails an 11 years old girl ('Hit Girl' played by Chloe Moretz) had a good deal of people up in arms, but Vaughn's highly stylized method of shooting made it obvious that the violence is comic book-inspired and never based in reality.
Christopher Nolan is a genius and Inception is a masterpiece.
Combining Nolan's exceptional plot with striking visuals, amazing stunts, as well as an ensemble cast who operated together in bringing this distinctive story to life, Inception is a film that served up a thought-provoking movie-going experience like none other this season. Nolan by no means let character development play second fiddle to the visual effects and complicated stunts, and also the entire cast - led by Leonardo DiCaprio and including Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ellen Page, Marion Cotillard, Tom hardy, Ken Watanabe, Lukas Haas, and Dileep Rao- deliver great performances.
Robert Rodriguez' trailer for Machete included in Grindhouse was so well-known that Rodriguez went and did points backwards, generating an element film based on a short trailer. Danny Trejo stars as an ex-federal machete-wielder who kills first and asks questions later because he seeks revenge for the murder of his wife and daughter. It's one of the few films by which Trejo doesn't wind up dead inside the very first act, and it shows just how much fun he might be to watch when permitted to have a character by means of to the really end.
4. 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1'
It is likely to be so sad to determine the series draw for an end, but the last book of J.K. Rowling's bestselling series is - for me - the most effective of the lot. And after watching Part 1, I have high desires Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 including all the key elements of the second half from the final book. Part 1 setup the finale perfectly, and showed our 3 favorite kid wizards - Harry (Daniel Radcliffe), Ron (Rupert Grint) and Hermione (Emma Watson), - are practically adults now and also have left the comforts of Hogwarts behind. It's been intriguing watching the talented threesome grow up before our eyes, and seeing them take their last turns in Harry Potter characters is going to be bittersweet.
Red means 'Retired Extremely Dangerous' and attributes an intriguing ensemble of actors, such as some not known for tackling action roles. Certainly, Bruce Willis can be a genre veteran, but Helen Mirren is not exactly the very first actress who one thinks of when you think of a retired CIA agents who is able to manage enormous guns.
Based on a graphic novel, the movie finds Willis, Mirren and firm forced out of retirement right after they're marked for extermination. Red is really a wild ride and you absolutely do not have to know about the source material to root for these veteran actors as they pull off some remarkable - and distinctive - action sequences. Willis's exit from a spinning auto is something we've by no means observed before, but you'll be able to bet we'll view it once more since it's so spectacular some director's bound to want to copy it.
6. 'Iron Man 2'
Ex-Hollywood bad boys Robert Downey Jr and Mickey Rourke square off within this second Ironman outing, once more directed by Jon Favreau. The first film earned $102 million its opening weekend back in 2008, and fairly much right away there was talk of the sequel. For a while it looked as although Favreau wasn't likely to be invited back, which wouldn't have been an intelligent move by the studio. But Favreau did return using what he believed was the proper formula (the cast, the villains) to make Iron Man 2 as huge a hit as the original Iron Man.
7. 'The Losers'
Last action film of Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Watchmen, found him playing among the most despicable masked vigilantes yet created. As The Comedian, Morgan killed with impunity. Thankfully for their own mental well becoming, that's not the sort of character Morgan's playing within the Losers. Here, Morgan is the leader of the Special Forces unit set up with a powerful enemy. The team seeks revenge for that betrayal and should quit their adversary from implementing his ruthless strategy.
8. 'The A-Team'
The A-Team earned more Cs and Ds from critics than it did A’s, however the outrageous action (such as a scene by which our heroes 'fly' a tank) was completely in keeping with the original material. Sharlto Copley, Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper and Rampage Jackson put their own stamps on the characters delivered to life on the small screen by Dirk Benedict, Dwight Schultz ,George Peppard, and Mr T even though paying homage to the originators. It had been mindless, escapist fun and that was truly all the film version from the A-Team required to be.
9. 'Tron: Legacy'
In 1984 TRON broke ground using its special effects. Now, after 25 years, a new Tron film - Tron: Legacy - hit theaters in 3D with state-of-the-art special effects. And even though the story and dialogue were a letdown following each one of these many years of awaiting a sequel, the stunt work and action sequences are some of the greatest of the year. In the light discs to the light cycles to the color scheme and use of neon, the sequel pays homage to the original - even bringing back a young Jeff Bridges (courtesy of visual effects magic) to experience a vital role - and then jolts Tron fans by amping in the action to some fevered pitch. New inclusions in the field of Tron - like a fierce warrior who protects Flynn in the digital world - engage in the majority of the film's impressive action scenes and are great at managing the physically difficult roles.
10. 'The Expendables'
Sylvester Stallone stars in, wrote and directed this course of action film that is loaded with every action star imaginable. Even Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger get in on the act, putting in cameos although not truly acquiring to kill everyone or inflate anything. Though the writing as well as the plot put the actors down, The Expendables works well enough when Stallone makes it possible for the action to take over. Stallone staged some attractive incredible fight scenes, putting his talented cast of veteran action actors to great use.
