Child 44 Review


Good

A meaty, fascinating story is splintered into three plot strands that battle for the viewer's attention, so while the film is never boring, it's also oddly uninvolving. Fortunately, it has an excellent cast and is shot with skill and a relentless intensity to feel like a big, epic-style dramatic thriller with heavy political overtones.

After a scene-setting prologue, the story starts in 1953 Moscow, where Leo (Tom Hardy) is a war hero now working in the military police, purging the city of its spies. Or at least its suspected spies. In the Soviet socialist utopia, crime officially doesn't exist, but Leo finds it difficult to tell his best pal Alexei (Fares Fares) that his 8-year-old son was killed in a train accident when he was so clearly tortured and murdered. Ordered by his boss (Vincent Cassel) to let it go, and menaced by his rival colleague Vasili (Joel Kinnaman), Leo continues investigating, resulting in a reprimand that sees Leo and his wife Raisa (Noomi Rapace) relocated to the the grim industrial city of Volsk. But when another young boy's body appears here, Leo gets his new boss (Gary Oldman) to see the connection.

There are at least three main plots in this film, and the filmmakers oddly never allow one to become the central strand. There's the mystery involving this brutal, unhinged serial killer (Paddy Considine) stalking boys along the railway. There's the thriller about Leo being brutally taunted by Vasili, who has a thing for Raisa and is trying to crush them for good. But the only emotionally engaging strand is Leo and Raisa's complex marriage relationship, which takes a couple of unexpected turns. Along the way, there are several action sequences shot with shaky cameras and edited so they're impossible to follow. And there's a sense that the film also wants to be a grandiose Russian epic with its expansive cinematography and big orchestral score.

'Alien' Voted The Scariest Movie Monster Of All Time


Ridley Scott

Nearly forty years after it first appeared on our screens to terrify audiences, the Alien monster from the eponymous sci-fi / horror franchise has been named as the scariest movie creature ever.

A poll of over 2,000 votes from among readers of the British TV listings magazine The Radio Times put designer H. R. Giger’s creation at the top of the list. The monster first appeared when it burst through John Hurt’s chest in the titular 1979 movie, and went on to be the star of three more Alien movies plus a handful of spin-offs, franchise crossovers and a prequel.

Christian Bale Annoyed Ridley Scott On Set Of 'Exodus'


Christian Bale Ridley Scott

Christian Bale apparently annoyed director Ridley Scott on the set of new biblical epic Exodus: Gods and Kings because he learned about his character (Moses) and kept on pressing for more inclusions to the script.

Bale is renowned for putting huge amounts of effort into his roles, as anyone who has seen Harsh Times or The Fighter will testify. He told World Entertainment News Network: “I kept on annoying Ridley with how fascinating the character was and how much we could add, saying, ‘Can't we put this in?’ But he would say, ‘Well Christian, that's an eight-hour long film... Please shut up; I'm trying to get through a day's work!’”

Egypt Bans Ridley Scott's 'Exodus:Gods And Kings Over "Historical Inaccuracies"


Ridley Scott Christian Bale

Egypt is allegedly trying to keep Moses out (again). The BBC repots that Ridley Scott’s epic Exodus: Gods And Kings, has been banned in the Middle Eastern country over “historical inaccuracies” depicted in the film.

The country’s censorship board list film's depiction of the Jewish people as having built the Pyramids, and that an earthquake, not a miracle by Moses, caused the Red Sea to part as examples of the “historical inaccuracies.” that can be found in the movie.

Ridley Scott's 'Exodus: Gods And Kings' Brings Spectacle To Cinemas


Ridley Scott Christian Bale Joel Edgerton

Ridley Scott is no stranger to the biblical epic. From 'Gladiator' to 'Kingdom of Heaven', he has proved that he's fearless when creating a massive-scale movie. Although he has long been criticised for skimping on the emotional engagement, offering just enough sketchy melodrama to hold audience interest, but little more.

Christian Bale in 'Exodus: Gods and Kings'

His new movie 'Exodus: Gods and Kings' is his biggest yet, a gigantic movie retelling of the clash between Moses and his adoptive brother Pharaoh Ramses, played with muscly energy by Christian Bale and Joel Edgerton, respectively. And critics have agreed that the film is certainly spectacular.

Exodus: Gods And Kings Review


Good

Aside from impressive 21st century digital effects, this new take on the Moses story pales in comparison to Cecil B. DeMille's iconic 1956 version, The Ten Commandments, which is far more resonant and intensely dramatic. Biblical epics are tricky to get right, and Ridley Scott certainly knows how to make them look and feel terrific (see Gladiator and Kingdom of Heaven), but his films are generally about the spectacle rather than the human emotion. So this version of the biblical story will only appeal to viewers who have never seen a better one.

It's set in 1300 BC, when the Israelites have been in captivity in Egypt for 400 years. Now rumours of liberation are circling, centring on Moses (Christian Bale), the adopted son of Pharaoh Seti (John Turturro), raised as a brother alongside the future Pharaoh Ramses (Joel Edgerton). When it emerges that Moses is actually a Hebrew, he is sent into exile in the desert, where he finds a new calling as a shepherd and marries his new boss' sexy daughter Sefora (Maria Valverde). Moses also has a run-in with the Jewish God, who appears in the form of a young boy (Isaac Andrews), challenging Moses to free the Israelites. As Moses attempts to spark a slave revolt, God sends seven horrific plagues to convince Ramses to let his people go.

The script struggles to have its cake and eat it too, finding rational explanations for the plagues and miracles while still maintaining God's supernatural intervention. It's a rather odd mix that demonstrates just how compromised the movie is: it's a big blockbuster rather than a story about people. Several elements work well, such as depicting God as a boy, although the screenplay never manages to make much of the female characters. And only Ben Mendelsohn manages to inject any proper personality as the weaselly overseer of the slaves. Bale and Edgerton both catch the complexity of their characters' situations, privilege mixed with personal revelations. But Scott is more interested in parting the Red Sea than taking them anywhere very interesting.

Christian Bale: Moses "Was An Internally Intriguing Character"


Christian Bale Ridley Scott

In the upcoming Ridley Scott film, 'Exodus: Gods and Kings', Christian Bale stars as Moses - the incredibly well-known biblical character, but when asked about the difficulties of portraying such a beloved and iconic character is "that he's so known, and he's so personally loved, and so important to so many people. And people have very very strong opinions about exactly how he should be played."

Christian Bale in 'Exodus: Gods and Kings'
Christian Bale shows off the fighting spirit of Moses

Yet Bale still took on the job despite the difficulties, especially because he felt that the story of Moses was just so important. 'It's a vital story; it's a resonant story" explains Bale. Furthermore, when Bale began looking into what was supposedly a very simple character, he turned up an awful lot more. Bale discovered that Moses was "a far more complex character that I had ever begun to realise".

Christian Bale Suggests Moses Could Be Considered A "Terrorist"


Christian Bale Ridley Scott

Christian Bale says Moses - the character he plays in Ridley Scott's Exodus: Gods and Kings - is "far more human and fallible" than he had imagined, going so far as suggesting he could be considered a terrorist.

The Oscar-winning actor watched Monty Python's comedy classic The Life of Brian and Mel Brooks' History of the World: Part One to prepare for the role, not wanting to turn in a haughty performance of the biblical hero.

Before I Go To Sleep Review


Good

A clever premise can't help but grab the audience's attention as this mystery-thriller plays with ideas of identity and memory, but the simplistic filmmaking makes it feel like a cheat. Writer-director Rowan Joffe (2010's Brighton Rock remake) badly underestimates the audience, using melodrama and contrived storytelling to try to manipulate viewers' emotions. And it doesn't help that the leading lady can't move her face.

Nicole Kidman stars as Christine, who wakes up every morning thinking that she's 23. When she discovers Ben (Colin Firth) in her bed, she's almost as horrified as when she sees her 40-year-old face in the mirror. But Ben patiently explains who she is, that he's her husband and that an accident damaged her ability to make new long-term memories. When he leaves for work each day, she is contacted by Dr Nash (Mark Strong), who helps nudge her into the present. But all of this does little more than make Christine wonder whether anyone is telling the truth. As she digs deeper each day, she gets in touch with her friend Claire (Anne-Marie Duff), who offers some continuity. And by piecing clues together she begins to realise that there's a gap between what's really happening and what she thinks she remembers.

With elements of both Memento and 50 First Dates, this film is packed with tricky elements that add to the suspense, creating a creepy atmosphere that's surprisingly moving as seen through Christine's eyes. Even with her immobile face, Kidman's eyes are alert and emotive, strongly conveying Christine's yearning to understand the truth. Opposite her, the always terrific Duff has the film's best role simply because she seems to be who she claims to be. Meanwhile, Firth and Strong have a great time wrong-footing both Christine and the audience, or maybe they're just misunderstood. The fascinating premise forces us to sift through the clues ourselves to figure out what's going on.

The Egyptians fight back as Moses defiantly leads the Israelites on an arduous journey across the desert, while God unleashes a series of horrific plagues and turns their Nile to blood.

'Prometheus 2': Everything That We Know So Far


Michael Fassbender Ridley Scott

'Prometheus 2', the follow up to Ridley Scott’s 2012 semi 'Alien' sequel has been given a release date of March 2016. That’s good news for fans who weren’t really sure exactly when or even if the film was going to happen. Now it seems that production will start in the fall once Scott wraps up his latest work ‘Exodus’. So what do we know so far about the upcoming sequel?

Prometheus director Ridley Scott'Prometheus' director Ridley Scott

The first thing to note is that really not an awful lot is confirmed about ‘Prometheus 2’. We can safely say that Scott will once again be sitting in the director’s chair again and he'll probably also produce. When it comes to the scripting, this is where things have gotten a little more complicated. Originally Damon Lindelof who co-wrote the 2012 script was writing the sequel, then he dropped out. He decided instead to work on another upcoming release sci-fi mystery ‘Tomorrowland’ starring George Clooney. Next to take up the pen was Jake Paglen, the writer behind upcoming Johnny Depp sci-fi outing ‘Transcendance’. Now, though, Paglen’s script is set to be revised by Michael Green, who’s no stranger to collaborating with Scott, as he's currently working with him on the future 'Blade Runner' movie. Apart from that his other writing credits include working on the ‘Green Lantern’ movie, so make of that what you will.
