of the releases have made an impact at the
box-office, which was the reason the industry
calling the weekend as a jinxed weekend.
Three English movies have dared to release
their movie this jinxed weekend and let’s
analyze those movies now.
The Asian martial arts master Jet li and
the American Martial arts expert Jason Statham
join hands to give this action packed thriller.
The official US title for the movie was
“War” but when a movie doesn’t
become a hit in the US some try to change
the title when releasing in other parts
of the world for that few extra bucks and
that’s exactly what Rogue Assassin
has also done. The movie which promised
to be an action epic just passed off as
an average action flick with a few amazingly
executed stunts. The climax which had Jason
and jet Li fighting was awaited with bated
breath as the action lovers wanted the two
martial arts expert battle it out but unfortunately
the fight hardly lasted 5 minutes. A movie
which can get a better reception in the
small centers especially in its Tamil dubbed
version, for the people eying the multiplex
to see this movie would probably come out
disappointed on spending such big bucks
for this half baked movie.
Why you should? – Because its Jet
Li and Jason Statham together, with some
amazingly choreographed sequences and which
has a good twist in the end.
Why you shouldn’t? – Because
the money in your pocket is your hard earned
money, why waste it?
From time immemorial people loved to see
tough guys going through hell due to kids,
this has slowly became a new genre all together,
whether it was Baby’s day out, or
Kindergarten cop, or Jingle all the way,
or Big daddy, or the recent Pacifier, all
the movies were thrashed by the critics
but loved by the paying public. Now another
good example on such a movie is Game plan,
the movie stars Dwayne Johnson Alias “The
Rock”, who is acting as a popular
American Football player but is facing troubled
times, when a small girl knocks his front
door introducing herself as his daughter.
What will he do forms the rest of the story.
The movie was critically panned but the
paying public just gave the movie a big
reception which enabled this movie to gross
more than $88 million in US alone. People
who love movies of such genre will surely
not be disappointed seeing this enjoyable
Why you should? – Because Rock has
a ‘Huge’ fan base in India and
seeing him losing out to a young girl would
be worth every penny.
Why you shouldn’t? – You want
to see an intelligent comedy movie.
