Here again the Plot on short: Frank Martin, played by newcomer Ed Skrein, a former special-ops mercenary, is now living a less perilous life – or so he thinks – transporting classified packages for questionable people. When Frank’s father (Ray Stevenson) pays him a visit in the south of France, their father-son bonding weekend takes a turn for the worse when Frank is engaged by a cunning femme-fatale, Anna (Loan Chabanol), and her three seductive sidekicks to orchestrate the bank heist of the century. Frank must use his covert expertise and knowledge of fast cars, fast driving and fast women to outrun a sinister Russian kingpin, and worse than that, he is thrust into a dangerous game of chess with a team of gorgeous women out for revenge. From the producers of LUCY and the TAKEN trilogy, THE TRANSPORTER REFUELED is a fresh personification of the iconic role of Frank Martin, that launches the high-octane franchise into the present-day and introduces it to the next generation of thrill-seekers. While the stakes are greater and technology is better, the same three simple rules apply: never change the deal, no names and never open the package.

will be released in UAE CInemas on September 3 and you can watch again the Trailer below:

Movie Review: Paul Blart : Mall Cop 2

MALLCOP2_1 shtToday we have been to the Movie Premiere of Paul Blart : Mall Cop 2 at the Novo Cinemas at the Ibn Batutta Mall courtesy of Empire International Gulf LLC.

We got Kevin James starring again as Paul Blart in the sequel of the 2009 Movie Mall Cop.  While with Kevin James and Nick Bakay the writers are the same in both movies the director in Mall Cop 2 is Andy Fickman (You Again).  Raini Rodriguez is back as  Blarts daughter and as well Gary Valentine (in a different role this time). It as well stars Eduardo Verástegui, Daniela Alonso and Neal McDonough who was brilliant as Villain.

The Plot in shortAfter six years of keeping our malls safe, Paul Blart has earned a well-deserved vacation. He heads to Vegas with his teenage daughter before she heads off to college. But safety never takes a holiday and when duty calls, Blart answers.

I was not a huge fan of the first part of Paul Blart :Mall Cop. Luckily  the second part is better in my opinion. While the story is not far away from each other the location is. This time in Las Vegas instead of a Mall in Jersey the whole Movie is a bit more on Big City level. While this is not the greatest movie Kevin James has done it does entertain and give you plenty of laughs.  A little bit of Die Hard mixed with a bit of 96hours and some gags, that is basically what you get here.  Straight forward easy predictable action comedy in which as well a part of serious topics like kids growing up and leaving the parents safe home, are shortly put in scene.

If you liked Mall Cop and The Grown Ups than you will as well have fun with this movie. If you are a die hard fan of The King of Queens you might walk out the theater a bit disappointed. For me it is not the greatest movie on earth, but it does what it promises, it entertains you and gives you a good time out with quite some laughs.

Verdict:  We had good fun watching Paul Blart : Mall Cop 2 and think it is a nice lean back and be entertained movie.

Acme Blog Movie Rating:  4 out of 5 stars

Paul Blart : Mall Cop 2 will hit UAE cinemas on April 16!

Movie Review: Testament of Youth

We had been last night out to see the Movie Premiere of Testament of Youth at the Vox Cinemas at the Mercato Mall courtesy of Front Row Filmed Entertainment. Testament of Youth is the latest @12-02-2015_Testament of Youth_Official PosterMovie directed by James Kent and starring Hayley Atwell, Taron Egerton, Alicia Vikander and Kit Harington in an autobiographical History Drama based on the life of Vera Brittain playing during her war years during the first world war between 1914 and 1918.

The Movie starts in the pre war time where Vera and her brother Edward and friend Victor are full of the  innocence of youth, larking about and swimming in a river close the Brittain’s family home. Some scenes of joy here establish the characters innocence still being full of prospects and their anticipation for what life has in store.  Incidentally this as well includes dreams of the studying at the highly anticipated University of Oxford. This happy times and moments won’t last as the clouds of war are getting closer and darker on the horizon already. In a very short snap you can see a newspaper headlines announcing the assassination of Arch Duke Franz Ferdinand.

????????????Roland the friend of Vera’s Brother joins Victor and Edward on the last day of School which is as well the eve of the first world war.  Vera who says in the beginning of the movie she will never get married falls for Roland and they become a couple. Shortly after the 3 friends decide on signing up to the military , against the wish of their families, but to support their country. Of course then the inevitable happens – the war breaks out. The friends are being deployed to France where they are at the lines.

Vera who got accepted in Oxford but cannot focus with the recent happenings abandons her studies and signs up as well – as a nurse where she serves at first at the home front and is later on deployed to France as well where she is helping German soldiers.  We see her  witness the death of loved ones and bathe bloodied Allied troops where she realizes that war is having the same dramatic impact on all the parties involved in it.

This great anti-war film is set in probably one of the bloodiest conflicts in history. A big difference in this movie is that you see the war through the eyes of a woman were usually it is told from a mans perspective. Through this we see Vera watching husbands, brothers, fathers, friends and lovers go to deaths and the emptiness that comes thereafter.

Alicia Vikander who played Vera Brittain was really amazing in her role and totally believable. The same can be said about Kit Harington. He matched the role of Roland perfectly.  I have really enjoyed the movie as it shed a light on war from a perspective I have never seen before.
