In this epic sequel to “28 Days Later“, the United States Army moves into London, UK six months after the initial outbreak to create a small safe zone in the heart of the city. Their mission is to secure, rebuild, and repopulate great BreakdownBritain. Everything is going as planned when all hell breaks loose and a handful of individuals must make it to safety!

Its no secret that I enjoy a good zombie movie, but both “28 Days Later”, and “28 Weeks Later” have taken the zombie industry to a whole new level. The military presence in 28 Weeks Later definitely makes it more interesting and gives the civilian population a greater chance of survival. This film receives a 8/10 for how realistic they make it feel and the amount of detail they go into.

What would happen if aliens came to invade earth and claim it as their own? Well as a scientist in the film “Battleship” so elegantly puts it, “If there is intelligent life out there ad they come here, it’s going to be like Columbus andBattleship Breakdown the Indians, only we’re the Indians.” Battleship is actually loosely based off the battleship board game, and is sponsored by Hasbro.

There hasn’t been a good Naval movie since “The Hunt for Red October“, so it was refreshing to watch a well done, and authentic Navy movie! The writers did a great job with character development, giving you more than enough detail to appreciate each of main characters you follow. The movie is action packed, keeping you on the edge of your seat, and with the fantastic special effects, you feel as if your a sailor in the United States Navy on board a destroyer fighting off aliens!

I decided to give this movie a 9/10 for outstanding graphics, and a plot that keeps you entertained and in suspense. Its also pretty cool and unique knowing the background of this movie came from a board game we all grew up playing!

The movie Jack Reacher is a Grade-A movie. The film is based on a Lee Child’s novel called “One Shot” and surprisingly they keep true to even the smallest details; although the writers did enjoy a Jack Reacherl Breakdownfew small changes. For example in the Jack Reacher book series he always used former presidents names as aliases, but in the movie he uses multiple former baseball player names.

They begin the movie with Barr (Joseph Sikora), a former US Army Sniper, killing five innocent civilians in front of the PNC Stadium in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with a M14 Rifle. Your immediately wondering whats going on, and why did he suddenly kill all those people. But luckily they don’t make you wait long, because while in custody he asks to see former C.I.D Major Jack Reacher (Tom Cruise). Reacher is a kinda cop, he doesn’t care about proof, he doesn’t care about the law, he only cares about whats right; and that holds true throughout thee entire film.

I’m pleased they picked Tom Cruise for the Jack Reacher role. He brings his tough guy attitude, yet sarcastic sense of humor to the movie. This offers a slight comical relief in this high-speed, shoot’em up style film.

All in all I gave this movie a four out of 5 stars because it was an enjoyable film to watch, kept me entertained, and focused through out thee entire showing, and Tom Cruise once again exceeded my expectations. I knocked one star off due to a lack of performance from the main bad guy known as “The Zec” (Werner Herzog), and I felt they rushed you along from scene to scene to cram in as much as they could into the 2h and 10min film.

Jack Reacher is already on DVD & Blu-ray, definitely rent worthy!
