Olympus Has Fallen

In saptamana de vacanta, am fost cu un prieten la cinema si am vazut acest thriller cu Gerard Butler (The Bounty Hunter, The Ugly Truth, RocknRolla, P.S.: I love you si Nim’s Island), a carui fana infocata sunt, simpaticul Morgan Freeman (The Dark Knight Rises, The Dark Knight, Wanted si Batman Begins) si Aaron Eckhart (The Dark Knight). Facand abstractie de faptul ca unele lucruri prezentate sunt cam SF si ca americanii sunt ridicati in slavi, ceea ce mie una nu-mi place deloc, filmul este unul bun al genului. M-a tinut in suspans, efectele speciale au fost reusite, iar totul e bine cand se termina cu bine :)


A very interesting movie, directed by Guy Ritchie (Sherlock Holmes) with sexy Gerard Butler, handsome Tom Hardy (who actually plays the part of Handsome Bob) and Ludacris. It’s a little bit weird to see Tom Hardy playing a gay role, especially because I see him like an example of masculinity, but the movie was enjoyable.

Storyline via imdb: Lenny Cole, a London mob boss, puts the bite on all local real estate transactions. For substantial fees, he’s helping Uri Omovich, a Russian developer. As a sign of good faith, Omovich loans Cole a valuable painting, promptly stolen off Cole’s wall. While Cole’s men, led by the dependable Archie, look for the canvas, three local petty criminals, the Wild Bunch, steal money from the Russian using inside information from his accountant, the lovely Stella. Meanwhile, a local drug-addled rocker, Johnny Quid, is reported drowned, and his connection to Cole is the key to unraveling the deceits and double crosses of life in the underworld.

The Bounty Hunter

I saw a few days agoThe Bounty Hunter for the second time. Lovely romantic, action and comedy movie. I just love the way Gerard Butler looks here: free, easy and bad ass. He’s absolutely HOT and GORGEOUS! Here’s a imdb review:

Milo Boyd, a down-on-his-luck bounty hunter, gets his dream job when he is assigned to track down his bail-jumping ex-wife, reporter Nicole Hurly. He thinks all that’s ahead is an easy payday, but when Nicole gives him the slip so she can chase a lead on a murder cover-up, Milo realizes that nothing ever goes simply with him and Nicole. The exes continually one-up each other – until they find themselves on the run for their lives. They thought their promise to love, honor and obey was tough – staying alive is going to be a whole lot tougher.
