Trauma Center: Not Without Reason It’s An “On Demand”

Published

on

What I want is not on you.
It’s in you.

 

It looks a bit like “Die Hard” in a hospital wing. Only the adamant John McClane has been replaced by the brave waitress Madison Taylor (Nicky Whelan) who has to save her own skin (and admittedly, that skin belongs to a beautiful, well-shaped body) while two mean-looking fellows are chasing her. And yes, the action hero par excellence, Bruce Willis, admired in days gone by for his contributions to action films and of course idolized during that period, is also present. This time, however, he’s not competing for the main prize as “Most valuable actor”. His contribution is quite limited and in the end you can say it’s insignificant. A negligible character who clearly has to drag himself through every scene while running behind the facts.

 

Trauma Center

 

What’s wrong with Bruce?

What’s wrong with star actor Bruce Willis? The sympathetic actor of yesteryear, who during his heyday was able to transform every crap film into a blockbuster, is slowly but surely working on destroying his status. In recent years it seems as if he has consciously opted for bland, uninspired B-movies with a flimsy screenplay. When looking at the list of films, with him in a central role, that I’ve seen in recent years, there’s really nothing worthwhile to discover. The films “The Prince“, “Vice“, “Extraction“, “Precious Cargo“, “Marauders“, “First Kill“, “Acts of Violence” and “Reprisal” are all monstrosities of movies that aren’t even worth viewing. The only movie I liked was “Once Upon a Time in Venice”. It’s the only film in which Willis demonstrates an unforced enthusiasm. Apparently, being an actor is precious to Willis. However, I recommend that he makes the honorable decision himself and quietly use his hard-earned dollars to enjoy a well-earned vacation for the rest of his life. And it’ll spare most of the film fans a lot of annoyance.

 

Trauma Canter

 

It isn’t all that bad.

Anyway. So if you forget the lifeless contribution of Bruce Willis, ignore the many improbabilities, won’t see the ridiculousness in some situations, and accept the shameless copying of some corresponding situations from “Die Hard”, then this movie isn’t all that bad. Admittedly, there’s no longer a lot of credit left. And no doubt, lead actress Nicky Whelan deserves the remainder of this credit. Although it’s sometimes annoying to see how her condition can radically improve from one scene to the next. One moment she stumbles through a room while bleeding profusely. The next moment she seems alive and kicking again. Incidentally, I still don’t understand why the bullet wound wasn’t treated decently in this hospital immediately. Applying only an emergency bandage and waiting till after the weekend for someone to be present there to close up the wound, doesn’t seem a patient-friendly procedure to me.

 

Trauma Center

 

Not without reason it’s an “On Demand”.

So as a whole, this isn’t a terrible movie (besides the disinterested and sleep-inducing acting of Willis. Can’t stress that enough times.). The idea of ​​the incriminating bullet in Madison’s thigh is an original idea in itself. The concept of corrupt agents and the one-location idea, where the victim has to fight for her life, can’t be called very creative. This (and the resulting storyline) has been used countless times in better movies and television series. Also, the movie isn’t really intense or exciting either. Although Texas Battle (heck of an artist name) and Tito Ortiz aren’t school examples of actors, due to their impressive appearance and no-nonsense attitude they still provided the necessary entertainment. In short, despite its (limited number of) positive points, “Trauma Center” was already doomed to be offered as an “On Demand” film. If you are an avid Bruce Willis fan then, of course, you should watch this movie. Only I’m afraid he won’t rise in many fans their opinion.

 

My rating 5/10

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?
