My opinion on “Acts of Violence”

“Mia, you shouldn’t have done that!
You have no idea who they are!”

Acts of violence” is nothing more than a retarded, boring and totally implausible crime film in which serious topics such as PTSD and odious human trafficking are used as fait divers. In addition to the brainless content, I was constantly annoyed about, you can see for the umpteenth time the downfall of a former action hero. Bruce Willis manages to pick out one inferior, meaningless B-movie after the other. I guess these films only have to meet one requirement. And that is that he only needs to show up on the set for a few days. Again, his presence on the screen is limited to a mere ten minutes.

Acts of Violence

Not accepting a drink is equal to being kidnapped apparently.

The reason for the outburst of excessive violence is the abduction of Mia (Melissa Bolona) who, during her bachelor’s night, opened her big mouth when a couple of hooligan-looking loudmouths wanted to buy her a drink. She had better kept her mouth shut, because these two hotheads kidnap not submisive girls and deliver them nicely to their cruel gang leader Max Livingstone (Mike Epps), who earns his daily living by exploiting innocent girls and dealing drugs. Drugs in which a specific sedative is processed. A sedative that’s being used to knock out elephants. In reality, this is also a nuisance and a difficult challenge to tackle in the global opioid epidemic.

Acts of Violence

They are ready to rumble.

What these criminals failed to take in account were the MacGregor brothers Deklan (Cole Hauser) and Brandon (Shawn Ashmore). Especially Deklan who seems to be in combat mode all the time. Both are ex-military and I guess they’ve gained a lot of experience from foreign missions. And Deklan is still suffering from that. He’s a walking time bomb with a short fuse. The benjamin of the family is Roman (Ashton Holmes), whose militaristic knowledge is being refined at record speed. I also wonder if it’s normal for ex-soldiers to have a weapons arsenal of that size so they can start a small one-man war.

Acts of Violence

Those brothers succeed in taking down those criminals over one night.

Bruce Willis is the frustrated police detective James Avery, who hasn’t managed to gather hard evidence after all those years to put the criminal Max behind bars for a long time. Or is his research counteracted from the top? No idea. But no worries James. The brothers MacGregor are perfectly successful in finding out most of the facts in a very short time. How the gang works. Where they usually strike. And the fact that those who try to escape, end up at the bottom of a lake. They may also count on the goodwill of James. He turns a blind eye so they can deal with the gang like outright avengers. As pure G.I. Joe’s they start mowing down their moronic opponents.

Acts of Violence

This was a pure waste of time. Luckily it didn’t take long.

Biggest plus is the duration of the movie. This waste of time doesn’t even take an hour and a half. Many times I’ve regretted to see the end credits of a film. With “Acts of Violence” the only thing I did was breathe a sigh of relief. And to be honest, in the end I had trouble remembering the opening scene. Trust me. You won’t miss anything if you don’t watch this crappy movie.

My rating 2/10

Tenet: What Is It And When Is It Out?

Published

on

What is TENET?

‘Tenet’ is the new film from director Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight Trilogy, Inception, Interstellar) starring John David Washington, Robert Pattinson and Kenneth Branagh. In terms of plot, very little is known about ‘Tenet’ but the plot synopsis reads as follows: “Armed with only one word — Tenet — and fighting for the survival of the entire world, the Protagonist journeys through a twilight world of international espionage on a mission that will unfold in something beyond real time.” Given that it’s Christopher Nolan, we know to expect something strange to do with time or non-linear storytelling but we just don’t quite know what…yet. Boasting a budget rumored to be over $200 million, ‘Tenet’ was filmed in seven countries around the world and includes some extraordinary action set pieces, including crashing a real 747 plane into a building (with no CGI)! It certainly promises to be a thrill ride that you don’t want to miss in cinemas.

When is Tenet out?

‘Tenet’ is scheduled to come out on July 17 but given COVID-19, many fans have been wondering if it will sadly get delayed. According to the film’s social accounts, it is still scheduled for July 17 but what’s interesting is that on the new trailer that dropped on May 22, rather than putting the film’s release date at the end, the trailer ended with the words “Coming to Theaters” which implies that the July 17 date isn’t firmly set in stone. It seems that Warner Bros. are aiming for July 17 but if cinemas aren’t open yet in big cities such as Los Angeles or New York, they may have to delay it to later on in the summer. But the film will definitely be released in cinemas as that’s something Christopher Nolan is very keen on. It certainly won’t be released on streaming and you will have to go to a cinema if you want to see it, it just depends on if that’s in the middle of July or later on in the summer once cinemas reopen.

Why is this film so important?

TENET is such an important film as it will be one of the first films to be released theatrically for months. The only film scheduled for release before Tenet is ‘Unhinged’ starring Russell Crowe, due to be released on July 1, but that seems a bit optimistic. Other than ‘Unhinged,’ ‘Tenet’ will be the first film shown in cinemas once they re-open and if ‘Tenet’ is a success and people return to cinemas, other summer blockbusters such asMulan’ and ‘Wonder Woman 1984 can be released. 

Will you be going to see Tenet in cinemas on July 17?
