Film Review: #Alive 살아있다 Saraitda (2020) - South Korea [Netflix]

#Alive 살아있다 Saraitda (2020) - South Korea [Netflix] Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia)Let’s just say that “Alive” should have been the “Train to Busan” sequel rather than the boring “Peninsula”. Although that’s not saying much when compared to the critically dud, this Netflix’s attempt to rehash the Korean zombie genre is insanely exciting, fun, engaging and even tense to watch. Director Cho Il-hyung manages to craft the film in three excellent act, the first to set the tone and put the main character into survival and shock mode, then the 2nd the meeting of a fellow...

Film Review: Kissing Booth 2 (2020) - USA (Netflix)

Kissing Booth 2 (2020) - USA (Netflix) Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia)   The original “Kissing Booth” was one of the most watched Netflix original films in 2018. Therefore when the sequel comes around in 2020, there was no denying its attraction. The real life pairing of Joey King and Jacob Elordi actually dated after meeting on-set and then broken up prior to filming for the sequel. So it’s an extra degree of awkwardness when you envision the two ex lovers filming romantic scenes and rekindling romance. Putting that aside, the film follows on from the...

Film Review: Fatal Affair (2020) - USA (Netflix Original)

Fatal Affair (2020) - USA (Netflix Original)  Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia)   There is a lot of problems with the latest Netflix’s romance suspense thriller “Fatal Affair” and its not the fact that it is a carbon copy of many 90s genre films and most importantly “Fatal Attraction”. Beside the fact that this kind of movie is exactly what you see and expect, filled with outright cliches, corny dialogue, unbelievable characters and as always a grand finale face-off with the psycho stalker and lover. Despite all that troubles, this is really the kind of film...

The Old Guard (2020) - USA (Netflix Original) Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia)   Netflix goes Marvel with the superhero inspired action packed blockbuster in “The Old Guard”. Whilst not entirely successful in its execution, the film packs plenty of punches and suitably entertaining from start to finish. It certainly helps to have one of the best heroine in the role with Charlize Theron and rising star Kiki Layne as two key female immortals. Director Gina Prince-Bythewood make use of the Netflix budget to produce plenty of visuals and effects to merge well with the numerous action...
