Review in 20 Seconds: Never Back Down

Never Back Down PosterIt does what it says on the tin, a testerone packed 1hr and abit. Where it fails is it tries to justify the events in the film with a limp and melow dramatic reference to Achilles shield. If your willing to overlook that, which you probably are if you are even remotely intrested in the film. Go see it you wont end up being bored at all.


3 Stars
Go See, its not the best film you’ll ever see but it is enjoyable non the less.


Review in 20 Seconds: Death Note (TV)

Death Note LogoDeath Note is one of those curious things you can come across, its starts with a single episode and then your hooked. Well thats all I have to say about Death Note, not really.

From beginning to end Death Note is a thrilling watch, the design & animation is without fault and the writing puts most of Hollywood to Shame. It combines all the good things a TV show should be and packages it up into 37 episodes of TV Gold.

What is Death Note about (ruthlessly copied from wiki I couldn’t explain it any better):

The series centers around a high school student who discovers a supernatural notebook that allows him to kill anyone by writing the victim’s name and picturing his or her face. The plot follows his attempt to create and lead a world cleansed of evil using the book, and the complex conflict between himself and those assailing him that results.

5 Stars РMust See, even if you have never been a big fan of anim̩

Review in 20 Seconds: 21

21 : Film PosterOverall I really enjoyed 21, I can’t comment on the book as I haven’t started it but I have bought it. I thought all the characters where believable, and it was an entertaining film, and has found its way on to my favorite films list.

Ok, so it does get abit mellow dramatic towards the end, but i think there are a good few films that suffer more for it, 21 is simple and to the point and most importantly, it doesn’t have the over top air of some of the ‘based on a true story’ genre of recent months.

Final Verdict
3.5 Stars – Go See, You wont regret it.
