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.

John Wick with Keanu Reeves, Bridget Moynahan and Willem Dafoe (October 24, 2014)

What happens when a fire-breathing dragon is attacked? It makes ashes of its enemies; and all the fires of Hell cannot compete with the retribution coming their way.

John Wick (Keanu Reeves) retired from his profession as a hired assassin to enjoy a normal life with his wife (Bridget Moynahan) until she became terminally ill. John's heart ache became unbearable; his precious wife would soon be gone. His wife gave him a beagle puppy before she died because she wanted him to take care of something living. He would think about the puppy, play with the puppy and not be sad after she was gone.
When she died his world spun out of control, only the sweet little gift of love his wife gave him; a puppy saved him. John had something he had to feed and take care of during the night and day. He worked on his 1969 Ford Mustang, a super-fast power car and he never went anywhere without his puppy. He enjoyed his fast car and puppy, but he stayed close to home where he still grieved for his dead wife, but the puppy helped his bruised heart as time passed.
                                                                                                                                                                    John Wick's Paybacks are Final  
One day while John was filling his gas tank at the station; two guys inquired about buying his car. John told them it was not for sale. Later the two guys broke into John’s home beat him senseless, killed his puppy and stole his car.

That was the biggest mistake of their criminal lives because John went after them for killing the puppy and stealing his car. And, many would pay for this unthinkable evil act against a man and his pet.

New York City would witness the revenge of a man who feared no living being and will kill the killers who killed a helpless puppy; they took everything from him. 

John’s payback became complicated because one of the goons Losef Tarasov (Alfie Allen) was the son of Viggo Tarasov (Michael Nyqvist) a New York City Crime Boss.

Viggo warned his son: It is who you did this to not what you did. And, of course the son Losef with his gangster I.Q. stated he was not afraid of John Wick. Little did he know of what was coming his way; a retribution that would make him want to crawl into Hell with Satan opening the door for him. John Wick did not show mercy or forgiveness; he let his gun speak for him.

(Willem Dafoe) received a contract on John from Viggo Tarasov. And, Marcus’orders are to use everyone to go after John Wick. 

It looks like Satan will be standing at his door for a long time letting the evil humans in to cool off from John Wick’s evening the score with vengence.

.Everyone from John’s past wanted to know if John is back and after a few shoot-outs he said: Yell, I’m thinking I’m back. And, he proved it in full-blown action mode leaving a trail of paybacks the city will never forget.

This is a movie I want to see because I love action movies and I will be in line on October 24th for my ticket---if God is willing and the creek don’t rise---I’ll be there to see one of my favorite actors Keanu Reeves.

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.

Sabotage--Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sam Worthington and Terrence Howard (2014)

John Wharton a.k.a. ‘Breacher’ (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is the Boss/Commander of a DEA task force known as the elite members. And, each selected because their training and skills made them the best. And their working together made them a family.They never questioned any assignment instructions from Breacher, as he was their leader and was always front and center of the group when the action began.

This elite group protected each other against many enemies; just wearing DEA on their vests made them targets for terrorists and drug cartels. Each reigned proficient in firearms, marksmanship, weapons safety and strategic shooting including deadly force decision training.

Breacher’s team members are Lizzy (Mireille Enos), Grinder (Joe Mananiello), Pyro (Max Martini),
Monster (Sam Worthington), Sugar (Terrence Howard) and Neck (Josh Holloway). Everyone displayed great respect towards Breacher and really he earned it.

The mission that began all their troubles happened when Breacher as the leader sieges a drug cartel’s safe house; arrested a major cartel leader and confiscation of millions of dollars. Everything is great as the team celebrated their victory.

Then Breacher’s questioned about 10 million dollars missing from the millions in the drug bust. When questioned Breacher said he did not take it. But did the squad take the money and hide it? Does Breacher really not know about the money? Or, was it his plan all the time to take the millions and safely hide it?

Suddenly, an unknown assassin begins killing the team members one by one. Has the drug cartel sent a hit man to send a message to the DEA agents to leave their money alone? Or could it be one of Breacher’s team members who is greedy and does not want to share?

Then FBI Investigator Caroline Brentwood (Olivia Williams) becomes involved after the murder of two members of the squad. She wants to know why someone is killing DEA agents under Breacher. Then it really gets dangerous for Breacher as the leader of the squad; because the Cartel kidnapped his family. This is when it all hits the fan, as nothing will stop him from getting his family back.

It appears another door of Hell has opened---as he shoots his way into the heart of the Cartel, creating maim---they did not know the monster they created when they took his family.

This movie will be in theaters April 11, 2014 and I for one cannot wait. I love Arnold’s movies and I am so happy he is back where he belongs---making movies.

Sylvester Stallone, Jason Momoa and Christian Slater in---A Bullet to the Head Movie Review

James Bonomo (Sylvester Stallone) a New Orleans hitman’s partner was killed by Keegan (Jason Momoa) a skilled ex-mercenary. Keegan also killed a New York City Detective Taylor Kwon (Sung Kang)’s partner.

So it only made sense for them to team up and go after the bad guy. And Hell has not fury like James Bonomo when he is avenging the death of a good friend and partner. He has no rules to play by but his own and he reacts to the moment. However Detective Taylor Kwon does have rules to go by and executes them in the beginning and as close to the law as possible.

But James takes out the trash and solves problems and this is one issue that will be bloody and messy. No one will hide from this man who is a sphere of fury rolling over the top of his enemies like a 5 ton ball of fiery steel.

When he tells his daughter Lisa Bonomo (Sarah Shahi) about his partner being killed she reminded him he promised her he would get out of this business. With revenge on his mind he goes after his prey and does not care who tries to stop him---he will not be deterred.

But when Keegan takes Lisa---James’ daughter to use as bait to lure in James ---the fireworks begins--- and I am afraid the bad guy Keegan has bitten off more than he can handle. James would walk over hot coals to get to his daughter.

James does not trust anyone and he said that is how he stays in the game of life over death. One could almost feel sorry for the bad guy because I know he has met his match.

I cannot wait to get the DVD of this movie and I hope everyone enjoys Sly in this one---he just keeps on getting better and better.
