This is an excellent film and it's opening in 28 theaters this weekend and will continue to expand throughout September and into October. I considered writing up my review this weekend, but I still have part two, Public Enemy No. 1, right here on screener and I think I am just going to post my reviews for both on the same day. However, if you live in one of the citiesKiller Instinct is showing at this weekend you should do everything you can to go see it. I loved it and can't wait to watch the follow-up.
This film is rated R for strong brutal violence, some sexual content and language.
I did a mini review for this one after seeing it at the Seattle International Film Festival and I don't really see any more I need to add after looking over what I wrote then. However, I would probably dial back my "B+" grade to a "B" or "B-", but I think that tends to be the case whenever you're talking about most any film that didn't entirely bowl you over the further you remove yourself from the experience. Nevertheless, it's still a fun and hard-R, bloody good time.
This weekend it's opening in 12 theaters nationwide and will begin expanding a little further on September 3. To check out the theaters it's playing at click here.
This film is rated R for sequences of strong bloody violence, grisly images and language.
Like Centurion this is just a fun actioner, though Takers is PG-13 fun and far more ridiculous and empty headed. Centurion has some legitimate moments of laughter where you'll be laughing with the characters as well as enjoying the carnage. With Takers there's some decent action, but the majority of the time you will likely be laughing at this movie for its silliness. Nevertheless, sometimes you need a movie like that. I had fun at my screening.
This film is rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action, a sexual situation/partial nudity and some language.

As much as I would love to praise A Most Violent Year simply based on the fact J.C. Chandor continues to test himself, it's nevertheless a film that feels as if it's trying to be something rather than actually being that something.
