Really enjoyed this 4k pressing. studio canal are on a roll with those old 4k pressings. Haven't watched it in years and very very enjoyable it was.
Hard to believe Jean Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren have been around so long.
Basically the story evolves round dead soldiers who are reanimated and turned into controlled warriors who can regenerate and fight in any situation. But things go wrong when a psycho soldier (Lundgren) remembers his old killing ways and goes on a killing spree. Only his old nemesis Van Damme can stop him....
Yep the film is predictable but enjoyable all the same......
More 4k pressings please Studio Canal of these old classics......

Surprised by this. Still a little long, but really enjoyed The Shining follow up. Rebecca Ferguson could have a “Rosie The Hat” film of her own. Well worth a watch.

A classic film noir in which a rich widow gets an insurance salesman to kill her husband to collect on the award.
At first the film seems obvious but there is some lovely twists in the tale along the way. And one genuine you didn't see it coming moment.....
Enjoy and a film you can watch over and over again.

Nice surprise at the Cineworld secret screening with this. Bale and Damon have great chemistry. I struggled with Bale's UK Northern accent occasionally, but a story of risk, achievement and friendship, with some great driving scenes. Would recommended, especially for any race fans.
8/10

When you say you struggled with his accent, was that because you didn't think it was good or you struggled to understand what he was saying?.

While many love it, I don't care much for 'The Shining' - slow paced and overrated for me, so was somewhat apprehensive of this sequel.
Also, Stephen King film adaptations tend to be abit of hit & miss for me... more miss than hits.
However, I thoroughly enjoyed this movie far more than The Shining.

I was alittle disappointed how Rebecca Ferguson's Rose character turned out in the end. There was alot of build up as to how strong and deadly this character was but her end felt abit timid and didn't live up to the anticipation

One of my favourite Bogart films. He plays a District Attorney called Martin Ferguson who's after a notorious ring of hired hitmen led by Albert Mendoza. His only witness Joe Rico one of Mendoza's hitman who will testify if he gets immunity. But things don't go to plan. A gripping thriller with an unexpected twist and Bogart in top form. A must see film and surprisingly brutal even by today's standards...... OK we're not talking 1st House on the Left 21st century but by the standards of the 50's it sure wasn't tame.
And a rare time when the film could not have been done in colour.......
