To Sequel or Not to Sequel: Bad Boys 3

Remember when Michael Bay actually made good action movies? No? Well he did, so there. The Rock and the Bad Boys movies I consider his best and I’m surprised we’ve never seen a third entry in the Bad Boys series. The second...

To Sequel or Not to Sequel: Homefront

The 2013 Jason Statham movie Homefront was one of his best, not just because it had Statham breaking necks but also because the characters were surprisingly well developed. In case you haven’t seen it the story is as foll...

To Sequel or Not to Sequel: John Wick

John Wick is my favourite movie of 2014; even better than The Raid 2, I hear you say? Why yes, and here’s why. It was an unapologetically R rated Hollywood action film. The type we rarely see any more so it was such a pleasan...

To Sequel or Not to Sequel: Close Range

Close Range was a fun actioner from 2015 and starred Scott Adkins as new badass on the block Colton MacReady. When I spoke to writer Chad Law a while back he discussed his inspiration for the character: To me, that’s far too ...
