Dunkirk Movie Review

Dunkirk Movie Review. Dunkirk is directed by Christopher Nolan and it is based on the true event when 400,000 soldiers with their back to the sea trapped on the beach completely surrounded by German forces that were coming in and no way to get home. The the concerted organized effort to save those guys.
Trust us, this is one of the most intense films you are going to see this year. The way Nolan sculpts this story is is so impressive. We heard early on on some screenings that a lot of critics are saying there's not a lot of characters development in Dunkirk and audience won't get to know the characters.
But, what you realize is that this movie is not about any of the characters. Dunkirk is about on particular moment. Nolan want to take the audience and immerse them into a situation that happened once. He wanted you to feel all the intensity, tension, and fear of being trapped and attacked.

The Equalizer - Honest Movie Review

The Equalizer is directed by Antoine Fuqua and stars by Denzel Washington. This project went between a lot of different directors before it finally landed in the land of Fuqua. Originally, Nicholas Winding Refn was going to direct The Equalizer which is not very surprise because a lot of his trademark violence in this movie.

Chloe Grace Moretz plays a young prostitute in this movie and then Washington is the man with mysterious past. He often meet this girl at the diner watches over her then decided to protect her when some evil guy beat her up. 

The man brings his mysterious past back into the forefront and he is on the mission to find the Russian Gang to take them out. 

When people are getting nails and drills into their heads, Denzel Washington is the only thing that carries this movie along as well as Marton Csokas.

It is a fun movie with a strong villain, and seeing them both act in my favorite part of this movie was great. In fact my favorite scene in this movie is the very intense conversation with both of them at the restaurant. Some people are going to be very turn off by the over the top villain in The Equalizer they are not very handle with much reason. 

Denzel Washington's character in The Equalizer seems really sane and some of the things that he does feel like Saw and Home Alone's traps. As if they are made for the entertainment value. 

Our main issue with this movie is to many psyplot. Chloe Moretz who just shows up for awhile and seems like they just want to get Denzel back into this evil world again then disappear for the entire movie.

That being said, we did have a good time watching The Equalizer because Denzel Washington as we said, he makes the violence fun, he makes the over the top action skills fun to watch. He also sells serious moment perfectly. We found his character is really compelling. The movie has a lot of holes in it but we still enjoyed it. 

The Equalizer movie rating: 3.5 stars
