# 452 – The Raid: Redemption

Best. Fighting Movie. Ever.

I’m not even kidding! I am so impressed with this one. It took a while to find an English version and when we did it wasn’t subtitled it was dubbed (which is very annoying) but that honestly did not take away from the movie as a whole.

I swear to god these guys were fighting for real! It was so serious and intense. The storyline was simple but effective, it really captured my attention from the first scene. It’s so fast, and full of action the whole way through! You NEED to watch it. I actually feel like going for a walk to the worst part of town right now because I’m pretty sure I just learnt how to fight like a ninja.

So much violence. And death. And blood. But so good.

It’s time like these that I’m really glad I took on this project! I’m giving it a 9/10

# 450 – Speed

I know it’s probably not that interesting but how young do these two look?! Its the first thing that pops into my head when I think about Speed, and if I don’t write it I can’t think of anything else. But seriously… look! If you haven’t watched this in a while you better go hire it.

Good movie, full of action, only a little bit of mushy stuff at the end (they always gotta add the mushy stuff) and its not too over the top either. Wellll ok… the bus jumping that gap in the road was a little hard to believe. Maybe Mythbusters can sort that one out for us.

That’s all I’ve got… add it to your ‘Action Movie’s To Watch’ list.

# 451 – Unbreakable

Surprise! We didn’t give up… just had a short break. And what a great movie to get us back into the swing of things!

Look, let’s just be honest, I don’t know if there will ever be a movie that I hate if Brucey is in it (have I mentioned this before?), he is seriously one of the best actors I know. If I ever come across a Bruce Willis hater I’ll punch them in the face.

I’d seen this movie a verrrryyy long time ago, probably when it first came out which would have made me 11 years old and the one scene I remembered is the part where the orange man pushes him over the balcony and into the pool. I think it must have affected me emotionally because I remember it so vividly (and I’m scared of pool covers). Not one other part was familiar to me.

I love the superhero/real world analogies, what a great way to look at comic books! Like they are all someone’s story, from long ago.. just exaggerated and commercialised. When you take all of that away, there are real life heroes and villains.

Shout out to┬áM. Night Shyamalan… what a clever man! We love your movies buddy!

A must watch! Even without Bruce and the superhero stuff, it’s a great movie with an even greater twist.
