Megan Leavey is a young US Marine corporal who has never been brilliant at connecting with people. Her mother isn't happy about choice of profession, but Megan finds something within herself as a Military Police K9 handler, finding it much easier to bond with dogs than her comrades. One day she meets Rex; a working dog whose skills include detecting explosives and attacking. Unfortunately, he happens to be one of the most vicious dogs on the team, but Megan isn't going to led that deter her. She's determined to train Rex and teach him discipline and they form a relationship, saving thousands of lives as they embark on over 100 missions over two Iraq deployments. However, when an IED explosion leaves them both injured, Megan decides she wants Rex to retire and live out the rest of her days with her. That's easier said than done.

Keanu Reeves picks up his supremely efficient hitman immediately where the 2015 original left him: regrouping with his new, as-yet-unnamed dog after taking down the New York mob that he used to work for. Director Chad Stahelski and writer Derek Kolstad have created another unusually satisfying action thriller, with sharply developed characters and a plot that holds more water than most of these kinds of movies. Obviously, it can't be as fresh as the first film, but it's thoroughly entertaining.
Reeves' John still just wants to be left alone, but after taking care of one loose end, he is contacted by Italian mafioso Santino (Riccardo Scamarcio), who calls in a blood oath. Unable to refuse, John heads to Rome to carry out a hit he knows will make his life exponentially more precarious, especially as it puts him into conflict with his old friend Cassian (Common). Sure enough, he now has an army of goons chasing him, led by mute thug Ares (Ruby Rose). So he returns to New York and gets in contact with an underground guru (Laurence Fishburne) who might be able to offer some respite from the hordes trying to kill him. And manager Winston (Ian McShane) is also willing to help John, as long as he abides by the rules of the criminal underworld.
The film is another superb mix of cool imagery and coherent action that moves briskly from one brutal encounter to the next. Vicious gunfights and car chases abound in this movie, and all are staged with bracing energy and a heightened sense of realism. Through all of this, Reeves maintains a sense of weary dignity in finely tailored suits that are refreshed after each messy encounter. How he keeps walking and fighting after each bruising fight is another question.

Is it really wise to trust your most dangerous sworn enemies? Sometimes you have little choice when there are threats in the world too brutal to put your best men on. Amanda Weller is in charge of a top secret government organisation known as A.R.G.U.S. They have in their detainment some of the world's craziest psychopaths, supervillains and powerful mutants, and while they are being of no use to society stuck in prison cells, Weller introduces a brand new team known as the Suicide Squad in which these criminals can carry out seemingly impossible missions with the promise of freedom or, at least, reduced sentences. Among them are such fiends as Harley Quinn, The Joker, Captain Boomerang, Deadshot, Enchantress, Rick Flagg and Killer Croc - who are all willing to band together and save the world, even if they die trying.

The uncompromising director has sparked outrage among some of Chicago's residence for using the city's nickname 'Chiraq', and are worried that the project may end up glamorising violence.
Famed director Spike Lee was accused of insulting the residents of the city of Chicago by titling his new project ‘Chiraq’, a movie which will look at education and violence. He has also been criticised for doing damage to the city’s reputation and hurting tourism by choosing the term.
The moniker ‘Chiraq’ is a nickname sometimes used for the city by its young inhabitants, referring to its reputation for street violence and gun crime. But a number of anti-gun crime campaigners and tourist officials have pulled up Lee, a director famed for his uncompromising depictions of struggles in society, for perpetuating an unhelpful stereotype by choosing the title.
