Film Review: Spenser Confidential (2020) - USA

Film Review: Spenser Confidential (2020) - USA

Spenser Confidential (2020) - USA Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia)   There is a lot of downtime and adequacy in the long time paring of Director Peter Berg and  star Mark Wahlberg in the Netflix original film “Spenser Confidential”. That’s precisely the problem with this film as the audience doesn’t really care what happens next or the consequences to any of the characters. It is that kind of film where a lot of things is happening, but nothing of note really matters and the adrenaline never reaches a high point. Sure we get plenty of brutal...

Film Review: Pain and Glory (2019) - Spain

Pain and Glory (2019) - Spain Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia)   This film brings the audience into the minds and journey of the main character as he goes thru life ups and downs. Director Pedro Almodóvar perfectly combines these spectrum of life from youth to middle age and retirement to a film about loss, love, imagination and memory. What we end up getting is a powerful film that portrays how fragile a mind is and how events in different segments of our lives shape who we are and how we go about living.   Antonio...

Film Review: The Bouncer (2018) - Belgian / France

The Bouncer (2018) - Belgian / France Aka Lukas  Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia)   This is a highly enjoyable and straight forward nonsense JCVD affair. It also allows JCVD to expand his dramatic acting range and the man succeed in doing so once again. It’s simple story of counterfeit, under covers and double crossers in the usual crime action thriller format. For a DTV flick, the cinematography and directing is surprisingly good from French director Julien Leclercq. In film noir and taking inspiration from numerous Hollywood affairs, “The Bouncer” remains grounded in its fight scenes...

Andrew Chan 1917 Oscars Sam Mendes UK Movies

Film Review: 1917 (2019) - UK / USA

1917 (2019) - UK / USA Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia)   Technically flawless and groundbreaking filmmaking and precise execution from director Sam Mendes and long time veteran cinematographer Roger Deakins creates the illusion of a one shot gimmick in the astounding “1917”. Making this film coherent as the camera follows the journey of the two ordinary solders. This is a beautifully depicted film that never shy away from the true horrors of war. We get direct exposure to the blood, the bare space of death and rotten bodies piling up like garbage on a river...

Film Review: The Invisible Man (2020) - USA / Australia

The Invisible Man (2020) - USA / Australia   Reviewed by Andrew Chan (Film Critics Circle of Australia) Inspired by the 1897 H.G. Wells novel of the same name, this is a modern reworking in light of the #metoo movement, Director Leigh Whannell (previously made and crafted  “Saw” and “Insidious”) made this interpretation extremely unique, breathtaking and edge of your seat thriller. Aided by the excellent Elisabeth Moss who is perfectly casted as the abused wife of “The Invisible Man”. In this film, the audience follows the camera and in doing so, we are immersed into every situation that Moss...
