RUN ALL NIGHT Review

Liam Neeson is back in yet another action film. Having starred as a god, a talking lion, and a Jedi, the Irish actor has certainly made a name for himself within Hollywood, but over the last few years it has been his action flicks that have gained him most notice. Naturally this leads fans to […]

CHAPPiE Review

Well fanboys and fangirls I’m happy to report that CHAPPiE wasn’t completely crappy! Despite having a 33% on Rotten Tomatoes the latest science fiction yarn by Neil Blomkamp showed promise, even though it did fall into the boundless nightmare that is plot predictability. What’s key to understand about this latest effort is that the director […]

KINGSMAN: THE SECRET SERVICE Review

We live in a world that is slowly being taken over by comic book adaptations, as whether it’s the big screen or small screen, studios can’t seem to get enough of these tales. As awesome as that is itself, it doesn’t stop us as fans from being more excited for certain projects, with different tastes […]

AMERICAN SNIPER Review

Ever since I first witnessed Clint Eastwood don his iconic poncho in A Fistfull of Dollars, I’ve been fascinated by his work, as between directing and acting, he has created many classic films. The latest entry in his impressive resume is American Sniper, with Eastwood once again tackling a real life story, as he showcases […]

EXODUS: GODS AND KINGS Review

The Ten Commandments is such an iconic film, with the performances of Charlton Heston and Yul Brynner, as well as the direction Cecil B. Demille being astonishing. It’s this reason that I believe there has never been a big budget Moses film, as though there have been a couple of animated films, as well as […]

PADDINGTON Review

I’ve personally always felt that no matter the age, humans are kids at heart. This is certainly the case when I’m reminded of my childhood, as for example if it wasn’t forBatman the Animated Series I’d never have a love for comics. This is just as president when it comes to the more innocent of […]

INTERSTELLAR Review

From the creative genius that is Christopher Nolan comes a sci-fi adventure that sets to change the way we view the genre. Like most I was introduced to Nolan’s work through his Dark Knight trilogy, though it is his other films that have really astonished. On the other hand I’m not a Matthew McConaughey fan, […]

THE EQUALIZER Review

Ever since it was first announced that ’80s television series The Equalizer was getting a film remake I wasn’t sure what to make of it. Initially two things went through my mind: either it’d be awesome and well worth the time, or that it’d fail miserably like the majority of remakes. Ultimately it turned out […]

KITE — The Review

There’s no doubt that the original version of Kite by Yasuomi Umetsu carries weight with anime enthusiasts throughout the world. But as one of the UTF Editor’s told me, “you have to be in a certain mindset to watch.” The same thing can be said about this 2014 iteration, but don’t worry that’s not a bad thing. Fans will […]

SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR Review

“Sin City’s where you go in with your eyes open, or you don’t come out at all.” That’s right fanboys, it may have been nine years, but Sin City‘s back! “These are the old days man, the bad days, the all-or-nothing days. They’re back!” Well enough Sin City quotes, lets get onto the review. Having […]

AT THE DEVIL’S DOOR — The Review

After sitting through At the Devil’s Door there’s no doubt in my mind that the creative team behind it succeeded in presenting something that was a cut above the rest. It’s rare when any horror film grips me from beginning to end. Too often the modern iteration of the genre doesn’t understand the subtle nuances […]

HERCULES Review

I AM HERCULES! That’s right fanboys screw Transformers: Age of Extinction and sod Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Hercules starring Dwayne Johnson is the must see film of the summer. At least this is the attitude I had going into the film. Now don’t see this sidestep as a negative sign as the […]

LIBERATOR — The Review

The lifestyle of an aged superhero comes into focus in this short feature film. And it’s through the creative minds behind Liberator that we’re given a rather engaging property that might be original enough to spawn something more than a nineteen minute flick. What my fellow fanboys and fangirls need to know about this piece is […]

EDGE OF TOMORROW Review

Live. Die. Repeat. That’s what Tom Cruise has to deal with in his latest blockbuster Edge of Tomorrow. If I’m being truly honest I didn’t really know what to expect going into the film as though the trailers and premise had me excited the disappointment of Cruise’s last sci-fi film Oblivion left me slightly sceptical. […]

MALEFICENT — The Review

I know there are plenty of Disney fans that have a soft spot for the classic film Sleeping Beauty, I’m one of them, so needless to say when this was announced my interest peaked. And after sitting through this movie I’m left with a mix of emotions. Maleficent is a solid picture that tries to […]
