Plot: Jake Carter (Mike “The Miz” Mizanin) protects a person of interest from a ruthless biker gang. Review: It’s hard to believe this series is now on its 5th entry but I’ve always had a soft spot for these movies as they are a fun throwback to 80’s style actioners. It’s definitely starting to show […]

Trailer for Luc Besson’s The Family

For me a new film with Luc Besson attached is always a bit of a event. The man reinvigorated the action genre in the 2000’s when it was at an all time low. He’s changing it up again with this dark action comedy star...
