Run All Night with Liam Neeson, Ed Harris, and Genesis Rodriguez and Joel Kinnaman

Danny’s father Shawn is a mob boss who wants revenge for his son’s death. This situation became complicated because of Jimmy and Shawn’s years of loyalty between them. However, family comes first in a prudent man’s life. Even mobsters love their families.

What can a father do? What any father who is worth a grain of salt would do---protect his son and his son’s family. Jimmy knew Shawn would come after his son because he killed Danny to save his son. Shawn may find revenge is sometimes bitter-sweet.

Will a father stand by his son and protect him from his best friend Shawn Maguire (Ed Harris) he has known for years? This could be the question Jimmy Conlon (Liam Neeson) thought about in reference to his alienated son Mike Conlon (Joel Kinnaman) who now needs his help.

Jimmy’s life of being a gangster and a hired killer evidently came between him and Mike. Mike’s family comes first in his life, and now they were in jeopardy because his father killed Danny Maguire (Boyd Holbrook).

A father’s love knows no boundaries when it comes to his children.

Fury with Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf and Logan Lerman (October 17th 2014)

Fury epitomizes what the fighting men of World War II dealt with, fought with, and the heroes they died with during this horrifying event. This movie tells a story about war, and how the young men received combat-training to fight and kill because it became a necessary evil of do or die; while the war erupted and bellowed around them. 
To the fighting men it felt as the doors of Hell opened and each side fought as the fires and brimstone took a life of its own surrounded them. The doors of Hell stood opened for Wardaddy and his men in April 1945 as they fought for freedom for all Americans.

              Fury the Sherman Tank

US Army Staff Sergeant Don “Wardaddy” Collier (Brad Pitt) trained and led his crew with Fury the Sherman Tank to fight against the enemy on their own ground over the enemy lines. Wardaddy’s war-harden face proved his skills rose from the action he experienced in fighting the enemy. Now his mission led him and his men into the heart and soul of Nazi Germany where the evil enemy lived. Fury protected its five member crew as they fought their way through the enemy lines.

The cold facts that Wardaddy faced with his men proved---although outnumbered they fought against a foe with weapons and ammo capable of wrapping them out in seconds. Still they stood tall and brave because of Wardaddy’s promise to keep them alive. He’s the icon of the brave Americans who fought in World War II.

A new assistant driver assigned to Wardaddy named Boyd “Bible“Swan (Shia LaBeouf) whose tender heart became a challenge to toughen and kill the enemy when needed. Wardaddy former gunner saw no target he did not eliminate and now he needed to train Bible in the middle of a war. Bible became a strong soldier who proved courage germinated in war to protect the men beside him.

These dirty, hungry, fatigued and sadden men remained on a mission nearing the end of the war, but his brave men Norman “Cobb” Ellison (Logan Lerman), US Army Cpl. Trini “Gordo” Garcia (Michael -Pena), Grady “Coon Ass”
Travis (Jon Bernthal) knew Wardaddy would do what he commanded other to do. You get action and drama in this war film and see how men lived and fought while protecting our freedom.                                                                                     

This movie is a winner for an Oscar for the Best Film category. In my opinion, this is Brad Pitt’s best movie since Legends of the Fall. 

David Ayers wore many hats as director, writer and producer; he performed brilliantly and I want to make sure I see more of his movies. This movie had the best people working behind the scenes as their hard work and creative touch is proof in the film.

From Paris with Love---John Travolta & Jonathan Rhys Meyers (2010)

James Reese (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) is an ambitious young aide to the United States Ambassador Bennington (Richard Durden) in France. James floats in a calm sea of dullness serving him. However, James would rather be on an assignment with the job of his passion; as a low rank secret agent for the CIA.

James is hoping to get an assignment in the CIA of a higher-level so he can prove his worth to the agency. And, just when he is enjoying being with his girlfriend---he gets a call from the CIA telling him to pick up his partner Charlie Wax (John Travolta) because he is being detained by French Customers at the airport. Because Charlie does not want to turn over his cans of his favored energy drink to them.

This was James’ first test of the assignment and after Charlie Wax called the French Airport Security Agents everything in the book and then some, he stood defiant against them, Yes,  James was shocked by Charlie's loud mouth with foul words being spit out at anyone or anything that got in this big bad CIA agents’ way. James slapped a Diplomatic Mail sticker on the bag of energy drinks. This solved the issue since the drinks were now protected from Customs.

James’ CIA handler advised him to do what Charlie Wax told him because he was on a very important assignment. Which James found out later it involved terrorist that were responsible for the death of the niece of Secretary of Defense.

Charlie Wax takes James on an action adventure of his assignment and one might describe it as a high-level CIA tutorial where killing and bombing is a big part of the lesson. This will be the beginning of James’ hard lesson on the facts of life as a CIA Operative. Will James make it to the end? Will Charlie Wax and James become friends and contacts to help each other with any future assignments they will be given?

Only after seeing the entire movie will one be able to answer all the questions one might want answers to; so buckle up this will be a ride to remember.

Dolph Lundgren, Alex Karzis and Kata Dobo' in Detention (2003)

Sam Decker (Dolph Lundgren) wanted to help the children as a teacher at Hamilton High a public school where the system has forsaken the students who wanted to learn and always putting the worst in detention, who does not seem to care about much. Detention does not solve any issues and seems it’s the pit stop for the worst students who do not go by the rules of the school.

Probably the reason Sam has stayed this long is because his girlfriend Margo (Jennifer Baxter), a tall beautiful blue-eyed blond who takes his breath away--- works at the school also.
Sam secured a new job with good pay and turned in his resignation to the Hamilton High’s principal. But Sam does not get off that easily, because the principal gave him an extra duty with the after school students in detention.

After a few stolen minutes with his girlfriend Sam enters the detention class to find three boys and a pregnant girl. The rebels of the school system and it seems of life has given them everything but candy sweetness in life. It’s written on their faces the pain in their hearts that the teachers do not take time to notice.
Sam thought after his duties as a soldier, trained in combat who witnessed the worst in war. That he would spend the rest of his life helping and working with high school kids, teaching them and watching them learn. But as he looks at the students before him---he wonders if they wanted any better in life---surely they do.

While the four students are in detention, there is one student in a wheelchair studying in the library to get a scholarship for college. His attitude is not the best, but his intentions seem basically good.

The security guard makes the seventh person left in the closed-down school, with all the doors locked and all the lights are off except in detention, security office and the library.

On the other end of town the police are transporting a truck with 300 million of cocaine, and the mastermind plan of the brutal criminal Chester lamb (Alex Karzis) and girlfriend Gloria Waylan ( Kata Dobo') with his gang of killers are to take it. And, because Chester’s inside information from a crooked cop and a FBI agent they were successful.

Now, they have taken the cocaine to the Hamilton High Auto Shop to work on the two vehicles to transport their treasure.

However, there are seven little stumbling blocks in their great planning---the school is not empty because detention is not over, a student is in the library and the security guard. Now, the action begins.
The killers find out they are not alone and starts a war after the children and Sam.

Sam and the five children---together will fight against the killers. Who will win? A good action drama with a lot of thrills, this is another Dolph Lundgren good combative movie.
