Hitman: Agent 47 Trailer


Agent 47 is a genetically engineered person trained from childhood to be among the greatest assassins on the planet. Nameless, parentless and with virtually nothing to lose, he poses the perfect person to eliminate whoever needs to be eliminated. He's almost impossible to defeat, with agility and co-ordination most acute, a powerful sense of logic and being fiercely strong; this is a man that no ordinary person can kill or - indeed - capture. His unique abilities become a target for a massive corporation hellbent on forming the most powerful army in the world, by unlocking the genetic code of Agent 47 - and the other Agents if they can find them. When they discover a woman with little knowledge of her past and ignorant of her superhuman powers, they think they've hit the jackpot. But Agent 47 has jumped into action to protect his kind, and help her unveil her genetic secrets.

Hitman: Agent 47 Trailer


Agent 47 is no normal human being. Having been born into The Agent Program with a barcode tattooed on the back of his head, he was trained up to be among the greatest hitmen in the world. With astonishing strength, infinite intelligence and the superhuman agility, he is impossible to kill - and ever harder to detain, with his incredible ability to tactically undo any situation in which he finds himself trapped (though that's not a word in this guy's vocabulary). Predictably, he is much desirable as a soldier and there's one organisation that will to everything within their power to understand the genetic engineering of Agent 47 in a bid to form an army to rival all others. Along the way he meets another agent with the same abilities, though she has no idea where she comes from and is desperate to uncover the secrets of her past.

When 47 discovers the man's daughter (Hannah Ware), she becomes his new target, and he hunts mercilessly for her.

Plastic Review


Weak

Lazy filmmaking undermines this sparky caper thriller, from paper-thin characters and convenient plot points to limp direction and corny editing. This is a real shame, because the bright rising-star cast brings real energy to the weak material. So audiences who can switch off their brains might have some fun watching this fast-paced romp. But everyone else should be wary.

It opens in Britain, where economics student Sam (Ed Speleers) is running an elaborate credit card scam with classmates Fordy, Yatesey and Rafa (Will Poulter, Alfie Allen and Sebastian De Souza). But when local gangster Marcel (Thomas Kretchmann) discovers their operation, he demands a £2m payoff to let them go. So Sam secretly manipulates his new girlfriend Frankie (Emma Rigby), who happens to work for a credit security firm, into getting them the key information they can use to stage a series of high-stakes cons in Miami. And when this plan falls apart, they decide to launch an elaborate sting to rob £20m of diamonds and set themselves up for life.

The premise isn't bad, but the script is packed with coincidental things that make it utterly impossible to believe. Frankie's job is one of these, as is the fact that Rafa looks just like the Prince of Brunei. And of course, since the plot needs some third-act suspense, Yatesey suddenly turns out to be a careless idiot. None of these things make any sense, leaving everything about the film feeling gratuitous, including the sunshiny beauty of the Miami Beach setting and the presence of inexpressive actress Rigby. Plastic, indeed.

Plastic Trailer


Sam and Fordy are young students who think of themselves as entrepreneurs in the business of credit card fraud. They and their friends are making a lot of money already, but it's a stressful business - they introduce glamorous new recruit Frankie into the group; a data processor for a credit card company who could prove to have the inside knowledge needed to make their money making schemes a hell of a lot simpler. They go oversees to scam some of the world's biggest billionaires, but it isn't long before one 'victim' catches up with them. An infamous gangster named Marcel finds them and threatens to kill them if they do not pay him a debt of $2 million in two weeks. Their lives now hanging in the balance, the group need to a license to print money if they want to make it - unless they can pull of a major jewel heist between them. However, with a potential fortune to be made, will their greed overcome their friendships?

'Plastic' is a crime drama based on a remarkable true story. It has been directed by Julian Gilbey ('A Lonely Place to Die', 'Rise of the Footsoldier') who co-wrote the screenplay alongside Will Gilbey ('Doghouse', 'Just for the Record') and Chris Howard (producer of 'Get Lucky'). It is scheduled for UK release on May 2nd 2014.

Stalingrad Review


Good

The massive scale of this film kind of distracts us from the more subtle plotting, obliterating any emotional connection with the thinly written characters. But it looks terrific, and offers an unusual perspective on the pivotal WWII battle for this strategic Russian city on the shores of the Volga River. It's also packed with gigantic set-pieces rendered in explosive 3D.

As Hitler's army advances across Russia in 1942, they find unusual resistance in Stalingrad, as pockets of resistance fight back while Russian soldiers replenish the forces from across the river. After one particularly brutal battle, five Russian soldiers led by Captain Gromov (Fyodorov) hole up in a vitally positioned building, where they discover 18-year-old Katya (Smolnikova) hiding. Each of the men falls for her, using her as inspiration as they fend off assaults from the tenacious German Captain Kahn (Kretschmann), who also has a young Russian woman (Studilina) he's in love with. But this stand-off can't go on forever.

Strangely, this story is framed by scenes set during the rescue effort after Japan's 2011 earthquake and tsunami, as a relief worker recounts the story of his mother Katya and his "five fathers". These sequences are also elaborately re-created with digital effects, but his implausibly all-knowing narration muddles the film's main plot. Through him we get the back-stories of all five men: the soulful Astakhov (Bondarchuk), sardonic Polyakov (Smokyakov), cheeky Chvanov (Lysenkov), mute-artistic Nikiforov (Barabash) and of course the tough-handsome Gromov. All of these men are relentlessly heroic in anecdotes that feel like they're lifted from urban legends, incluiding battlefield miracles and the creation of a steamy bath for Katya's birthday.

Stalingrad Trailer


In 1942 during World War II, Nazi Germany attempts a brutal invasion of the Russian city Stalingrad. Fortunes initially look to be in their favour as the Soviet Union fails to protect their town from a lethal shower of bombs which level most of the buildings, but an incredible determination forces the Soviet forces to continue their defence, no matter how futile it may seem. One group of soldiers decide to do their best to defend one of the few important buildings of the city still standing from being reduced to rubble and along the way find themselves putting all their fears aside to protect two Russian women living there. It soon becomes clear that unity and love are the only things that can really bring them victory in one of the bloodiest battles in human history.
