xXx: Return of Xander Cage serves up all the expected over-the-top action

xXx: Return of Xander Cage serves up all the expected over-the-top action but it won’t win the series any new fans due to various shortcomings. Director D.J. Caruso (Disturbia, I Am Number Four) calls the shots, and his handling of the material is a mixed bag. Some of the action set pieces (in particular, the ones involving Donnie Yen) are well-constructed and deliver big screen spectacle, but others rely too heavily on quick cuts and certain sequences wander dangerously close to incomprehensible territory (and of course, viewers must suspend their disbelief in order to fully buy in). Return of Xander Cage is also extremely derivative of Suicide Squad, giving each group member their own pop song-infused introduction complete with a title graphic containing “fun” factoids about the characters. This plays into the movie’s core problem: it doesn’t really bring anything new to the table and can’t shake the feeling of being a stale rehash. It lacks its own unique style and plays as just a run-of-the-mill sequel that exists mainly so Diesel can play Xander Cage again.

Nobody goes into these movies expecting fantastic acting performances, but none of the turns here are exactly standout. Diesel is fine as Xander Cage; however, this is far from his greatest role. He tries a little too hard to channel the spirit of the old school James Bond films with witty one-liners and retorts, but his skill set isn’t exactly built to be that kind of hero. For many, Yen will probably be the most memorable part, as he unsurprisingly displays strong adeptness in his many action sequences. There frankly isn’t much to his character overall, but at the very least Yen delivers on a superficial level by giving people the necessary genre thrills via his fight scenes. He’s having fun in his role and audiences should enjoy his contributions to the series. download movies for free online

Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for the supporting cast. The likes of Rose, McCann, and Wu are all serviceable, but they’re just simply there to round out the team and don’t have a whole lot to do outside of action scenes. The ensemble is arguably way overstuffed, as Deepika Padukone (who is essentially the female lead), Tony Jaa, and former NFL star Tony Gonzalez all have similarly thin parts that do not amount to anything. Frazier tries to give Padukone’s Serena Unger a flirtatious romantic relationship with Xander Cage, but these beats fall flat and the payoff is unearned. By far, the weakest link in the movie is Nina Dorbev, who plays the xXx program’s tech assistant Becky. It’s difficult to tell if it’s more a fault of the writing or the performance, but Becky comes across as highly annoying and is largely one-note (read: overwhelmed/out of her element). Frazier and Caruso may have benefitted from trimming some characters out in order to tighten things up and dedicate more time to the better actors and develop a select few as a cohesive unit.

In the end, xXx: Return of Xander Cage is exactly what most moviegoers expected when they heard this film was finally reaching theaters. It’s suitably over-the-top, but the weak characterizations, poor story, and sloppy direction prevent it from truly achieving its ultimate destiny as a brainless romp of action fun. Those who have been following the series (and love it) from the beginning will be inclined to check it out, but the uninitiated can wait until The Fate of the Furious comes out in order to get their fix of Vin Diesel and company.

Review Kill The Messenger 2014

Review Kill The Messenger 2014Review film Terbaru - A reporter becomes the target of a vicious smear campaign that drives him to the point of suicide after he exposes the CIA's role in arming Contra rebels in Nicaragua and importing cocaine into California. Based on the true story of journalist Gary Webb.

Whether it's the latest studio release, an indie horror flick, an evocative documentary, or that new RomCom you've been waiting for, the Movieclips team is here day and night to make sure all the best new movie trailers are here for you the moment they're released.

Douglas Farah was in El Salvador when the San Jose Mercury News broke a major story in the summer of 1996: The Nicaraguan Contras, a confederation of paramilitary rebels sponsored by the CIA, had been funding some of their operations by importing cocaine into the United States. One of their best customers was a man named Freeway Rick — Ricky Donnell Ross, then a Southern California dealer who was running an operation that the Los Angeles Times dubbed “the Wal-Mart of crack dealing.”

“My first thought was, Holy shit! because there’d been so many rumors in the region of this going on,” said Farah 12 years later. He’d grown up in Latin American and covered it for 20 years for The Washington Post. “There had always been these stories floating around about [the Contras] and cocaine. I knew [Contra leader] Adolfo Calero and some of the other folks there, and they were all sleazebags. You wouldn’t read the story and say, ‘Oh my god, these guys would never do that.’ It was more like, ‘Oh, one more dirty thing they were doing.’ So I took it seriously.”

The same would not hold true of most of Farah’s colleagues, either in the newspaper business in general or at the Post in particular. “If you’re talking about our intelligence community tolerating — if not promoting — drugs to pay for black ops, it’s rather an uncomfortable thing to do when you’re an establishment paper like the Post,” Farah told me. “If you were going to be directly rubbing up against the government, they wanted it more solid than it could probably ever be done.”

In the mid- to late ‘80s, a number of reports had surfaced that connected the Contras to the cocaine trade. The first was by Associated Press scribes Brian Barger and Robert Parry, who published a story in December 1985 that begins, “Nicaraguan rebels operating in northern Costa Rica have engaged in cocaine trafficking, in part to help finance their war against Nicaragua’s leftist government, according to U.S. investigators and American volunteers who work with the rebels.”

Only a few outlets followed Barger and Parry’s lead, including the San Francisco Examiner and the lefty mag In These Times, which both published similar stories in 1986, and CBS’s “West 57th” TV series, which did a segment in 1987. A Nexis search of the year following Barger and Parry’s revelation turns up a total of only four stories containing the terms “Contras” and “cocaine” — one of them a denial of the accusation from a Contra spokesperson. Stories popped up here and there over the next decade, but many of them make only oblique reference to a couldn’t-possibly-be-true conspiracy theory.

Then came the San Jose Mercury News piece, a 20,000-word three-parter by Pulitzer Prize–winning staffer Gary Webb published under the title “Dark Alliance.” “For the better part of a decade, a San Francisco Bay Area drug ring sold tons of cocaine to the Crips and Bloods street gangs of Los Angeles and funneled millions in drug profits to a Latin American guerrilla army run by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency, a Mercury News investigation has found,” it begins.

The series initially received little attention from major media outlets, but it was eventually transported across the nation by the Internet and black talk radio. The latter put its own spin on the tale: That the U.S. government had deliberately spread crack to African-American neighborhoods to quell unruly residents. The Post newsroom was bombarded with phone calls asking why it was ignoring the story, the paper’s ombudsman later reported.

In response, the Post, The New York Times, and the Los Angeles Times would all weigh in with multiple articles claiming that Webb’s assertions were bunk. His career was effectively ruined, and even his own paper eventually disavowed “Dark Alliance,” despite having given it a cutting-edge online presentation complete with document transcriptions and audio recordings.

The big papers had been pushing the same line for years. In 1987, New York Times reporter Keith Schneider had flatly dismissed a lawsuit filed by a liberal group charging that the Contras were funding their operations with drug money. “Other investigators, including reporters from major news organizations, have tried without success to find proof of aspects of the case,” he writes, “particularly the allegations that military supplies for the contras may have been paid for with profits from drug trafficking.”

In These Times later asked Schneider why he’d rejected the Contra–coke connection. He was trying to avoid “shatter[ing] the republic,” he said. “I think it is so damaging, the implications are so extraordinary, that for us to run the story, it had better be based on the most solid evidence we could amass.”
