  • Righteous Kill

    The waste of society needs to be eliminated, some may like to believe. Thus, like Kamal Haasan, a ‘righteous’ citizen who makes it his mission in life to knock off corrupt bureaucrats in a famous Tamil film, an NYPD cop in Righteous Kill is out to clean the streets...
  • Changeling

    What is it about the police force that many a time makes them seem worse than criminals? In Changeling, the Los Angeles Police Department is incompetent, corrupt, and ruthless. Five months after a nine-year-old disappears, they publically announce that he has been found. This is a partially true story...
  • My Sister’s Keeper

    Why were we born and who are we living for: for ourselves, for our parents, or for other loved ones? Anna (Abigail Breslin) philosophizes in My Sister’s Keeper. She was born in vitro, a designer baby meant to be a spare-parts provider for her sickly elder sister. There is...

Or, at least, that’s what Ben (Kiefer Sutherland), a suspended undercover detective who pops strong pills to get over his alcoholic problem would like everyone to believe. Taking...
  • Armored

    When one has access to tens of millions of dollars and believes that there is a foolproof chance of pocketing them without being caught, principles can undergo overnight alteration. In Armored, a group of guards who transport cash between banks in armored vans plan on pulling off a daring...
  • Wanted

    Whoever thought that spasmodic stress is actually a symptom of superhuman strength! In many ways, Wanted reminds one of the Matrix series, in particular, the ideas of the reluctant ‘chosen one’, the slow-motion shots while a bullet travels in the air, the superhuman reflexes of the lead characters, the...
  • 21

    Money. Everyone could do a lot more for themselves if they have a heck lot of it. And there’s plenty to be had from the casinos in 21. To know how to get it to rolling into your hands, you simply need to be a cool, genius mathematician with...
