Jean-claude Van Damme Signs For Six Bullets


Jean Claude Van Damme Brad Krevoy Ernie Barbarash

Jean-Claude Van Damme is set to star in 'Six Bullets'.

The action hero - who rebooted his image in 2008 after starring in the self-spoofing movie 'JCVD' - will team up with director Ernie Barbarash for the film, which tells the tale of a former mercenary kidnapping expert who is hired by a top martial arts champ to find his missing daughter.

The movie will be produced by Brad Krevoy - who worked with Van Damme and Barbarash on the upcoming 'Assassination Games' and the Motion Picture Corporation of America, which Krevoy helped co-found.

The Breed (2001) Review


OK
In the near future, vampires exist peacefully alongside man until a renegade group seemingly tries to rebuild a kind of Nazi regime, with bloodsuckers herding humans into concentration camps. This strange WWII allegory is unfortunately neither very successful as a political drama nor as a monster movie; the flashbacks are too obvious, and the buddy cop plot is overwhelmingly impossible to follow. Our cop heroes (Adrian Paul and Bokeen Woodbine: one's human, one's a vampire) jump from suspect to suspect without so much as a word of explanation why. The moody atmosphere (pitch black, everywhere) and illegible computer readouts with dossiers on each character don't help.

Love, Cheat & Steal Review


Terrible
Vintage Eric Roberts, as he turns in yet another run-of-the-mill psycho hell-bent on revenge when his old girlfriend sets him up and lands him in jail. His ex (Mädchen Amick) has since put on a sweet face and married a rich guy (John Lithgow, for Pete's sake!)... but when Roberts is finally freed, he pays her a visit to settle the score. Predominantly crap.

Undisputed Review


Good
The last of his breed of filmmakers, Walter Hill is a prolific, old-school screenwriter/director who's worked in everything: sci-fi, westerns, musicals, noir thrillers, comedies, and action. Over the last couple decades, Hill has produced a plethora of notable gems such as Streets of Fire, 48 Hours, The Warriors, and Southern Comfort. His latest flick - Undisputed - falls smack dab in the middle of cinematic quality: A straightforward tale of two lone, boxing warriors going head to head (and toe to toe) inside a microcosm of violence, power, and greed fueled by the almighty dollar.

Ten years ago, rising boxing superstar Monroe Hutchen (Wesley Snipes) was sent up for life imprisonment due to a fit of passionate and murderous rage. He's serving time in Sweetwater Prison in the Mojave Desert and continues to box in the Inter-Prison Boxing Program with a flawless record and the title of undisputed champion. To prove that he could have amounted to something outside the prison walls, Hutchen unexpectedly gets his chance to fight the undisputed World Heavyweight Champion, George "Iceman" Chambers (Ving Rhames), an arrogant megalomaniac who has recently been sent up for six to eight years for a charge of rape. Hmm, who does that sounds like?

Route 9 Review


Good
An awful lot better than it should be, Route 9 is a made-for-cable ripoff of A Simple Plan, but it succeeds remarkably well. Perfectly suited for late night TV watching.

Joe And Max Review


Very Good
A very capable film, Joe and Max explores the odd relationship between America's "brown bomber" Joe Louis and Nazi Germany's greatest fighter, Max Schmeling, on the eve of WWII. Til Schweiger was born to play the role of Schmeling, and the film is at its best when it focuses on the reluctant Nazi's torment at the hands of Hitler and his cronies. Louis's life gets a less thorough treatment, probably because it's a bit less dramatic, but either way I learned a lot about both fighters -- and the countries they represented.

Consequence Review


Terrible
First the bad news: Armand Assante.

Good news: Lesbian shower scene.

Overnight Delivery Review


Very Good
What, you think you've seen all of Reese Witherspoon's movies? This little gem all but vanished from theaters, but thanks to heavy rotation on cable, it's easy to catch one of young Reese's funniest roles -- as a stripper, no less! -- in Overnight Delivery.

Now available on DVD, the film follows the time-tested "stop the package before it gets to the girlfriend" plot, with Paul Rudd as our hapless cross-country traveller, trying to save the ultimate breakup letter from reaching its intended (Taylor), who turns out (of course) not to be cheating on him. Wacky hijinks ensue -- most of them being quite funny. Larry Drake's even-more-hapless delivery man (on his first day of work) faces off with the deadly duo. A serial killer runs across our hero's path. The gang runs out of money and has to dine and dash (with disastrous effect), and even Witherspoon's car takes a turn for the worse as it plummets from a cliff. This is a Road Trip that works equally well as a date movie (in fact it's one of my wife's favorite guilty pleasures, and mine too for that matter).

Retroactive Review


Good
Now a cast list doesn't get much worse than that. With a few bright points (Whaley, Walsh), there's nary a talented bone up there. But surprise, this isn't such a bad movie. Oh, the plot is asinine -- in the middle of Texas, a bunch of travelers converge for a little mayhem, right next door to a government time machine. Lots of explosions, and Whirry has almost no lines. Whew!
