Theatrical Review: Transporter 3

Yet again, transporter Frank Martin finds himself in another dangerous situation, this time holding the daughter of a Ukrainian Prime Minister in tow, while an “evil corporation” is negotiating with him (the Prime Minister) to store their environmental waste, against his wishes, of course. The only catch, Frank and the girl, Valentina both have explosive devices attached to their wrists triggered to go off if they go further than 75 feet away from Frank’s car.

Now I really like the first two Transporter movies from director Louis Letterier and producer/writer Luc Besson, they’re just some good mindless fun, and for the most part, so is Transporter 3 this time with director Olivier Megaton (that’s his name) helming the action. And the action here is pretty darn good for the most part, but this film does have it’s draggy moments.

And most of those moments involve Frank’s “package,” the girl, Valentina, who is strictly his opposite number, a party girl who wants Frank to satisfy her in what she believes are her final moments alive. She’s pretty much the typical Luc Besson “heroin chic” type of girl, and this might not be so bad if the actress involved had any charisma or actual beauty to her, but mostly she comes off as an annoying skank, except for the final scene in the film.

Jason Statham reprises his role as Frank Martin and as always, Statham is solid as a rock. I make no apologies, I’m a huge fan of the guy and he’s had a pretty good year, not only being in this and Death Race, but also in what is one of the very best movies of 2008, The Bank Job. He’s always fun to watch and pretty much, if he’s in it, I’ll probably see it. François Berléand is back as Frank’s friend, Inspector Tarconi, and he’s solid as well. New to the series this time is Jeroen Krabbe (who I haven’t seen in anything in quite awhile, it used to be every time I was turning around he was in something- most notable in The Fugitive) as the Ukrainian Prime Minister, and the always reliable Robert Knepper as Johnson, the man pulling the strings on Frank, our villain of the piece. Most know Knepper as Tea-Bag each week on Prison Break and he’s just a great character guy and I hope he ends up in more movies. But as I said above, the biggest problem here is the actress who plays Valentina, Natalya Rudakova, who just has zero charisma, stilted English that sounds more like reading lines than anything else, and in my own opinion, just not that attractive at all. Some scenes in particular, especially when she’s trying to distract Frank from doing his job, you just want him to knock her out so we can get back to the action.

It’s not bad in the end, but it’s probably the weakest of the Transporter movies thus far, but hopefully it’ll still do well enough so that Luc Besson and company will still keep making them. If you like these movies, I expect that you’ll probably like this as well, though your mileage may vary with the Valentina character.

Variety has reported that Twentieth Century Fox is gearing up to continue its X-Men franchise with a younger set of mutants. The studio has tapped Gossip Girl creator Josh Schwartz to write X-Men: First Class. Schwartz, the creator and executive producer of CW’s teen hit as well as Fox’s youth-centric The Oc and NBC’s Chuck, is expected to inject a next-gen sensibility into the superhero series, which has earned $1.2 billion worldwide. The writing assignment has also included the possibility of directing the film, but so far Schwartz has opted not to take the helm. Lauren Shuler Donner, who produced all three X-Men pics, as well as next summer’s X-Men Origins: Wolverine,” is producing First Class alongside Mr. and Mrs. Smith scribe Simon Kinberg.

Screenwriting duo Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely have been brought aboard to pen the script for First Avenger: Captain America based on the 1941 Jack Kirby and Joe Simon created comicbook superhero. Markus and McFeely both contributed to the first two Narnia films as well as the Ben Kingsley 2007 starrer You Kill Me. The news comes 9 days after director Joe Johnston was named as the film’s helmer, but there still remains no word on who is being considered for the lead role of Steve Rogers a man deemed too frail to enter the Army, but through a secret ‘Super-Soldier Serum’ he becomes a perfect specimen. Following his transformation he sets out as Captain America in a war against evil.

Fredrik Bond will direct and Mark Poirier is signed to write The Host remake for Universal Pictures. The Ring and Pirates of the Caribbean helmer Gore Verbinski, meanwhile, will produce. This will reunite Verbinski with the Ring producing team from Vertigo Roy Lee and Doug Davison. Bond’s background, according to Variety , is rooted in commercials. He’s known for his ads for Nike, Adidas and Levi’s. Poirer recently scripted Smart People . Based on Bong Joon-ho’s South Korean film, The Host finds a family uniting to rescue one of their own from a mutated monster. “It processes a few genres together, and visually it feels close to the stuff I’ve made over the last few years in commercials, the tonality of humor and the scale,” recently told Variety.

Universal looks to move forward on a third Nutty Professor movie reports JoBlo. The studio in currently developing the film and has put out an open call to writers to pitch them a concept for a third film. They were quick to caution that Eddie Murphy is not attached to the project at all in this early stage.

Frequent collaborators, director Dale Fabrigar (a semi-finalist on Steven Spielberg’s short lived On The Lot reality series) and writer Kurt Patino, have teamed up with actress Kelly Stables (best known for playing Evil Samara in The Ring movies) and visual effects wizard Michael Morrealle to produce a new horror/fantasy web series titled Soul Fire Rising. The show, produced by King Dream Entertainment, follows demon Lilith, played by Aimee Lynn Chadwick (Las Vegas, Trade) as she wanders through Los Angeles stealing men’s souls while searching for Eve (to be played by Stables in future episodes), a now mortal demon worth one million human souls. The first two chapters, running about three minutes each, are currently available on the show’s website and MySpace.

Devin Faraci at Chud has word of a remake of Conquest of the Planet of the Apes called Genesis: Apes that was written by Rick Jaffa (The Relic) and Amanda Silver (The Relic and The Hand That Rocks the Cradle). The film is something of an origin story centering on a baby monkey that is raised in a human household and shows signs of great intelligence and the ability to talk.

According to the trades Universal is in negotiations to remake the Korean film Die Bad, developing the drama as a potential directing vehicle for director Marc Forster, whose latest flick, Quantum of Solace, hit theaters this week. Brad Ingelsby is on board to write the script. Ingelsby is also scripting the Paramount Vantage drama Buried, with Todd Field attached to direct, Sleeper for Warner Bros and The Low Dweller, which Leonardo DiCaprio is slated to star in. Written and directed by Seung-wan Ryoo, the 2000 original consisted of four short films that told the story of the rise and fall of a gangster. The components are being combined for the English-language remake that will be set in New York. The original won the audience award at the Pusan Film Festival. The film will be produced by Forster and his Apparatus partner Brad Simpson, Vertigo’s Roy Lee and Doug Davison and Rick Schwartz of Overnight Productions.

Lake Mungo is being developed as a remake on American soil. Paramount Vantage is behind a forthcoming redo of the Australian horror film. The original, an Arclight Films production, was told as a faux documentary. The premise surrounds the story of a young girl whose apparent death sets off a series of paranormal events. Frightened by what appears to be otherworldly activity, her family discovers secrets about their daughter as well as what lurks beneath Lake Mungo. Vantage’s remake will drop the documentary style and simply be told with a straight-forward narrative. Vertigo Entertainment’s Roy Lee and Doug Davison along with Adrian Guerra and Joel Anderson, the film’s original creator and director, brought the project to Vantage and are set to produce.

Ennio Morricone has finally accepted Tarantino’s request for collaboration. Variety reports that the composer will be writing the music for Inglorious Basterds, though he may not have time to score the entire film. “Tarantino will finish shooting the film in February and has to deliver it by the end of April in time for Cannes,” said Morricone. “That doesn’t leave me enough time to do the music. Either I start working on it before he stops shooting–after we discuss it together–or I just can’t do it.”

He’s still best known for making Turtle ‘toon TMNT in 2007, but director Kevin Munroe is planning to direct horror pic War Monkeys. While he’s about to be busy helming graphic novel-based pic Dead Of Night, he’s deep into negotiations to take on Monkeys, based on a script by Chris Nettles. “It’s kind of like if Quentin Tarantino did Gremlins, Nettles first told me. I read it and it was exactly that. The horror stuff was at a peak and the characters are really rich,” Munroe tells Shock ‘Till You Drop. The story finds two men trapped underground with military-trained simians out for blood. It’s apparently “an older, meaner brother of an Amblin production. It’s real horror with real scary elements. You’ve got real monsters here with the monkeys. But the characters are a modern day Abbott and Costello. In the same vein of Shaun of the Dead but scarier.”

Theatrical Review: Quantum of Solace

Literally taking place right on the heels of Casino Royale, James Bond is seeking revenge on the killers of Vesper Lynd, and through his last suspect, Bond and M discover a far greater threat, that of a new group called Quantum, who even has an operative placed right in MI-6. Bond’s investigation leads him to an environmental entrepreneur named Dominic Greene and his company Greene Planet and also to a woman named Camille who has her own plan of revenge to complete.

And in a nutshell, that’s the premise of Quantum of Solace, Daniel Craig’s second movie starring as James Bond. This movie is almost an extension of Casino Royale completing Bond’s opening arc and setting things up (hopefully} to come. As such, it doesn’t quite carry the same impact that Casino Royale did, though to me, it’s still a very entertaining film with some very nice action set pieces.

This one is directed by Marc Forster, who previously directed The Kite Runner which I haven’t seen. And Forster is doing some things here that’s not atypical James Bond stuff, but still fitting to what has been set up with the first movie. Where it falls a little short is doing something that’s more complete unto itself, that is if that’s what you’re expecting, but if you’re going into it looking at this as an extension of the previous film, well then you’re bound to have some fun with it.

I really like Forster’s action sequences here, some of them giving an almost over-the shoulder type of view and others intercut with some other action going on simultaneously. One in particular going on during an opera, Tosca, is really extremely nice.

Craig is solid gold as Bond, he proved in Casino Royale and he cements it with Quantum of Solace. and while this doesn’t quite ask the same things of him that the previous film did, there’s still some nice character stuff along the way. One scene in particular when Bond is giving Camille some advice about killing a person is very nice. Olga Kurlyenko plays Camille, and she was most recently seen in Max Payne and she’s OK in the part, mostly serving as window dressing more than giving anything real meaningful. Better is Mathieu Amalric, who plays Greene. Now he’s not in the same category as Le Chiffre, but as the tip of the iceberg that should be the organization of Quantum, he does a pretty decent job. The real trick will be in the third film and if the pursuit of Quantum is taken further, then that’s when the filmmakers will have to up the ante a bit. Judi Dench, Giancarlo Giannini and Jeffrey Wright are all back from the previous effort and all are fine, though Dench’s M seems just a bit softer than she’s been in previous efforts (including the Brosnan Bond when speaking of this). Still though, this cast is pretty well suited in the big picture.

I thought it was a lot of fun, even though it doesn’t have the same impact as Casino Royale it does have it’s moments, and it closes the emotional arc for Bond started in the previous film, while setting the stage for bigger things to come. My advice is to set those expectations just a wee bit lower than what you had for Casino Royale and look at this as an extension, and you should have a pretty decent time with it.

According to the new trailer for the J.J. Abrams directed reboot prequel, STAR TREK, may well premiere with the upcoming James Bond adventure QUANTUM OF SOLACE but if you’d like to get a taste of it beforehand, a couple of scoopers over at AICN ( recently wrote in to describe the trailer. Here’s a snippet from the more detailed description: The trailer starts by showing a mid-60’s Corvette convertible tearing across the country side. After a few seconds we see a long shot that shows a policeman in hot pursuit. Another long shot shows the Vette screaming at full speed toward a steep cliff. A slo-mo shot shows the driver leaping from the car at the last second and tumbling ass over teakettle toward the edge of the cliff itself. The driver is a young boy who looks about 13 or 14. He manages to grab a hold at the last second and hang on as a birds eye shot show the antique Vette fall away into an abyss. We see the boy get up and dust himself off and the camera cuts away to show a troopers boot come down close-up. The black leather boot is obviously the policeman’s who was chasing the car but it looks suspiciously “different.” Just different enough to let the audience know this isn’t a normal policeman. The shot then cuts to where we can see the policeman standing in front of the boy with his “bike” hovering in mid air a few feet beside him. He shouts at the boy, “Who are you?” or “What’s your name?” and the boy shouts back defiantly, “James Tiberius Kirk!”

The Resident Evil pix that’ve hit theaters the last couple years have dissapointed many fans of the original game series. The movies, staring Milla Jovovich, did not deliver what fans wanted and ultimately felt like generic sci-fi/zombie films with parts of the series tacked on. Now it looks like Capcom and Sony Home Entertainment understand what the fans want and are releasing a new entry into the Resident Evil story in the form of a new CG movie Resident Evil: Degeneration. Bringing back some beloved characters from the series — Claire Redfield and Leon Kennedy — the filmakers are taking the series back to its roots. The result is a straight-to-dvd flick that plays out closer to an extended in-game cutscene rather than a big-budget Hollywood blockbuster.
