A Week In Film #478: Old style

Midnight Run title screenMidnight Run
Good, fun, breezy comedy-drama from Martin Beverly Hills Cop Brest, setting thumb-up-the-ass bail bondsman De Niro on the trail of endearingly annoying white collar crime-cum-patsy Charles Grodin, followed in turn by a maelstrom of other interested parties.

John Wick title screenJohn Wick
Solid in-camera actioner with Keanu Reeves as a moody, bereaved hit man taking on entitled, coke-addled Russian mob kids. Strong work from stuntmen-turned-directors David Leitch and Chad Strahelski.

Waterworld title screenWaterworld
Interesting premise – waterborne Mad Max – but less than stellar execution.
