'The Royals': Are The Critics Bowing Down To E!'s First Scripted Drama?


Elizabeth Hurley Joan Collins Vincent Regan William Moseley

Tonight US audiences get their first look at ‘The Royals’, E!’s new (and first ever) scripted drama, focusing on a fictional British royal family. Starring Elizabeth Hurley as the feisty matriarch Queen Helena, the series looks to be as melodramatic as ‘90210’ and as decadent as ‘Gossip Girl’. But is 'The Royals' actually worth turning over an hour of your Sunday evening to?

Elizabeth HurleyElizabeth Hurley stars as Queen Helena in 'The Royals'.

At the center of the series is Elizabeth Hurley who seems to be always available when American television is in need of an upper-class British sexpot. But Hurley’s Queen Helena, or as The Los Angeles Times’ Mary McNamara describes her ‘an Ivanka Trumped-up version of Princess Diana’, seems to lack the necessary depth to make her watchable beyond the show’s first 15 minutes.

Vendetta Review


Weak

Packed with cliches, there's nothing remotely original about this East London crime thriller, which seems to be based on other similar movies rather than an original story or characters. It's also not particularly well-made, stretching a clearly low budget to the breaking point. But at least it has the always watchable Danny Dyer on board.

He plays Jimmy, a highly trained military operative who has been serving in Afghanistan but has a meltdown when he hears that his parents (Samms and Denham) have been brutally murdered by gangsters. So he escapes from military police custody and somehow returns to London to get revenge, tracking down the dealer (Osei) who ordered the murders, then killing him and his sidekicks in increasingly nasty ways. A local cop (Petrie) is on Jimmy's trail, hoping to advance his career by catching a serial killer. But he's told to back off by Jimmy's commanding officer (Regan), who knows what Jimmy's capable of.

There are quite a few other complications to the story, including Jimmy's attempts to help his estranged wife (McKee) and young daughter. And Jimmy also gets his old pal Griff (Ryan), who's now in the police force, to act as a double agent. Each actor makes the most of his or her character, overcoming the stereotypes and stiff dialog. But no one's remotely likeable, and even Dyer's character is more gleefully violent than is strictly necessary. This is the kind of role Jason Statham normally plays, but even he would struggle to make us sympathise with this guy.

Vendetta Trailer


Jimmy Vickers is a Special Forces Interrogator who returns home from his run in Afghanistan to a less than warm welcome. A vengeful gang has brutally murdered his elderly parents and, in a haze of fury and despair, he flees from his old unit and the police in a bid to avenge their deaths on his own terms - no matter what happens to him as a consequence. Even despite pleas from all around him  for him to let the authorities handle it, all he has is violence on his mind and so attempts to escape them just until he has slaughtered every last one of the killers - but could his actions be putting someone else in danger along the way?

'Vendetta' is a gritty British crime thriller directed and written by Stephen Reynolds ('Tomb Raider Ascension') and starring Danny Dyer, who's infamous for his roles in a bloodthirsty action flicks including 'Severance', 'The Football Factory' and 'Deviation'. Among the production team on this movie are Jonathan Sothcott ('Devil's Playground', 'Dead Cert', 'The Fall of the Essex Boys') and Billy Murray (who's popular for his acting role in UK soap opera 'Eastenders'). 'Vendetta' will hit theatres in the UK on November 22nd 2013.

Germany match; they are about to embark on a diamond heist that could either define or terminate their criminal careers - and with a double agent among them, who knows which way it could go?

Lockout Trailer


In the near future the world most secure prison MS1 houses the most dangerous prisoners on Earth, floating precariously above the atmosphere offering no chance of escape for the convicts. That is until one convict in particular makes things increasingly inconvenient for those below him on Earth as he manages to unlock the cells of each prisoner, with an ensuing mass riot making things even more uncomfortable for authoritarians. What's worse is that the President's daughter, Emilie Warnock, just so happens to be on board the galactic detention centre. A rescue operation must be formed and ex-agent Snow takes on the lone mission to ensure her safe return as well as restore order in the prison.

Snow White and the Huntsman Trailer


The Evil Queen, Ravenna, is very beautiful but very deadly. Early in her reign, she despaired over 'battles fought and lives lost' but now, she draws strength from the cries of war. Each day, she looks in her magic mirror and asks 'who is the fairest of them all?' The answer is always her.

300 Review


Excellent
Everything old is new again in 300, director Zack Snyder's account of the barbaric Battle of Thermopylae, a film that is ridiculously stylish and commendably substantive. I expected the former (Snyder's source material is a graphic novel from cult hero Frank Miller) and was delighted by the latter, as 300 winds up being far more original than I thought possible.

Like Robert Rodriguez in Sin City, Snyder employs cutting-edge visual technology and green-screen effects to essentially photocopy Miller's acclaimed work of the same name. Because Miller's graphic novels have been fountains of inspiration for a handful of recent directors, his style has become overly identifiable. Splotches of crimson (usually blood) stain sun-dried backdrops as impossibly chiseled warriors fight long past their dying breath. That's 300 in a nutshell, though Snyder's tight epic additionally bathes in every tired cliché of the warrior genre, yet somehow makes it all seem fresh.

300, one of the highlights of the Berlin Film Festival, had its world premiere last night and received a standing ovation in the sold out Berlinale Palast. The film inspired by the work of graphic novelist Frank Miller, was attended by director Zack Snyder and cast members Gerard Butler (King Leonidas) and Rodrigo Santoro (Xerxes).

300 is a ferocious retelling of the ancient Battle of Thermopylae in which King Leonidas and 300 Spartans fought to the death against Xerxes and his massive Persian army. Facing insurmountable odds, their valor and sacrifice inspire all of Greece to unite against their Persian enemy, drawing a line in the sand for democracy. The film brings Miller’s (Sin City) acclaimed graphic novel to life by combining live action with virtual backgrounds that capture his distinct vision of this ancient historic tale.

Black Knight Review


Terrible
Early in the fish-out-of-water (or rather black-man-out-of-the-hood) comedy Black Knight, the medieval English king exclaims in describing Martin Lawrence's Jamal, "He's no longer funny, but he refuses to give up the joke."

A truer thing has never been said. It amazes me the filmmakers left that line in the film. Perhaps they were feeling self-reflective.

Black Knight Review


Weak

Call it "A South Central Homeboy in King Arthur's Court" -- but call it only occasionally amusing -- "Black Knight" stars Martin Lawrence going back in time to do his out-dated it's-a-black-thang schtick for 14th Century English royalty.

Ten seconds into the movie, he's is already strutting like George Jefferson and doing a little booty dance just to show how dependent he is on such clichés. Then he goes to work at a dilapidated, castle-themed amusement park and falls into the fetid moat while reaching for a medallion he saw floating in the water.

Somehow sucked into the past by the medallion, he's mistaken for a French ambassador when he says he's from Normandie (a street in Los Angeles). Thus his strange clothes, strange behavior and strange language are explained away as he teaches the Mediaevals to boogie, flash gang signs, speak street ("That's tight! Boo-yeah!") and fight like WWF wrestlers.
