Director: David Gelb Cast: Olivia Wilde, Evan Peters, Sarah Bolger, Mark Duplass
When a group of medical researchers, led by Frank (Mark
Duplass) and his fiance (Olivia Wilde) accidentally kill a member of their team, while experimenting on the brain, they find a way to bring her back to life. But when she wakes up, they realise she has brought with her a deadly force that they need to stop to survive. A promising start, but falls flat as the story progresses.
The Secret Service
Director: Matthew Vaughn Cast: Colin Firth, Michael Caine
Classy espionage is back, thanks to director Vaughn, in this film about Eggsy (Taron Egerton), who is a young troublemaker who finds himself being groomed to be a spy. He is to partner an English operative codenamed Galahad (Colin Firth). But after a rough start, Eggsy proves himself strong and even helps restrain a twisted tech genius. Sexy suits, British humour and slick action make this a must watch, if not a repeat viewing.
The film is closing in on the $100 million mark.
