This is a film that’s made for people who love sports movies, those who relish true stories of a surprise comeback against all odds, and especially for diehard fans of boxing.
While it may be forgotten when stacked up against the Hollywood war classic greats of yesteryear and modern day, “Allied” is a satisfying escape that’s sure to resonate with those who are addicted to watching the Turner Classic Movies channel.
The classic ‘body switching’ tale of the poor and the rich trading places is the premise of “Luck-Key,” a real charmer of a film (it’s a Korean remake of Kenji Uchida’s 2012 Japanese comedy “Key of Life”).
The shockingly weak screenplay is one of the many elements that completely ruin “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk,” a disappointingly lousy movie from Oscar winning director Ang Lee.
The intensely bleak and extremely dark “Into the Forest” is a feminist-tinged apocalyptic tale of sisterly love and devotion taken to the extreme.
This feel bad holiday movie almost identically mirrors the first film in plot and tone.
