Devil Review

By: Bryan Montgomery
Rating: 7 out of 10

It may only be M. Night Shyamalan’s idea; but Devil seems like it was made by the famous director back in his hay day of making high-quality thriller films.  Devil is an acceptable thriller for all audiences due to its high amount of thrills, the twists and turns of the plot, and an overall sense of continued chaos created by the fear of the characters.

By: Andy Chruscicki (www.twitter.com/filmguy629)

Never trust anyone, ever.  George Clooney learns this lesson the hard way in his latest film, The American directed by Anton Corbijn.

Jack (played by George Clooney) is an assassin who carries out every job he is given with precision and dedication and never lets himself get to close to someone.  However, when a job in Sweden takes a turn for the worse, Jack must go in to hiding.  He is assign to Castelvecchio, a small town in Italy by his associate Pavel (played by Johan Leysen).  Soon after arriving, Jack befriends the local priest, Father Benedetto (played by Paolo Bonacelli) and the two begin to form a very apprehensive relationship.

Long story short, this is a movie review website. But the term “movie review” is subject to expansion based on the basic subject matter. On this site, we will not only be giving you our take on the newest releases, but also reviews of new Blu-Ray/DVD releases, old releases that interest us, as well as a look at the business end of movies, with weekly box office previews and recaps.
