Assassins Creed Odyssey on PS4 – The DVDfever Review

Assassins Creed Odyssey
Assassins Creed Odyssey follows on from the success of last years Assassins Creed Origins with its Egyptian setting this year we have Odyssey with a Greek setting.

The backdrop and story starts with Leonidas and the 300. You remember that great movie from around 10 year ago? Well, this opening literally just sets you off with a combat tutorial wielding a spear and killing Persians.

Hitman 2 – Elusive Target 1: Kill Sean Bean!!!

Hitman 2
Hitman 2 is less than a month away, and now, Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment and IO Interactive have unveiled their first Elusive Target: Sean Bean! And I love how this trailer mixed real footage with computer graphics, as you’ll see.

Personally, I wish these elusive targets were available to try and try again, as I usually cock them up, and sometimes, life take you out of the loop during the time while they’re active.

Yes, it feels a bit mean to kill Sean Bean, but he’s given us great performances and gritty BAFTAs for years, so maybe it’s his time…

The Curse of La Llorona – Teaser 1

The Curse of La Llorona
The Curse of La Llorona centres around a social worker and her kids, who are soon drawn into a frightening supernatural realm after ignoring the eerie warning of a troubled mother suspected of child endangerment.

Or… with James Wan appearing again in the movie world as one of the producers, it’s another film full of silly jump scares.

The Kid Who Would Be King – Trailer 1

The Kid Who Would Be King
The Kid Who Would Be King made me think – Grange Hill meets King Arthur, as the picked-upon boy is the only one who can save the world.

And of being told he must put paid to the evil Morgana, “How am I supposed to stop her? That’s ridiculous. I’m 12(!)”

Destroyer – Trailer 1 – Nicole Kidman

Destroyer
Destroyer features an unrecognisable Nicole Kidman as Erin Bell, a police detective, who reconnects with people from an undercover assignment in her distant past in order to make peace.

This does look like a cracking action/drama based on the trailer, and since Destroyer is released in the UK on January 25th 2019, it is clearly looking for Oscar/BAFTA recognition.

The Aftermath – Trailer 1 – Keira Knightley

The Aftermath
The Aftermath shows that World War II is over, and a British colonel and his wife (Jason Clarke and Keira Knightley) are assigned to live in Hamburg during the post-war reconstruction, but tensions arise with the German who previously owned the house, Stefan Lubert, played by Alexander SkarsgÄrd, who is actually Swedish.

Even though period movies aren’t really my bag, this looks like it could be pretty good… oh, until it started dropping into romantic slush as she falls for the German guy whose wife died in the war.

Miss Bala – Trailer 1 – Gina Rodriguez

Miss Bala
Miss Bala sees a massacre take place in a nightclub and Gloria (Gina Rodriguez) she’s captured and recruited to do a job for the baddies. If she completes it, they’ll let her and her friend go, but the police think she’s in on it and want her to help stop them, and as the trailer concludes, and she looks dressed like a new Nikita, she says, “In the end, a bullet solves everything”. Hmm…

Synopsis: Gloria finds a power she never knew she had when she is drawn into a dangerous world of cross-border crime. Surviving will require all of her cunning, inventiveness, and strength.

The Possession of Hannah Grace – Trailer 1

The Possession of Hannah Grace
The Possession of Hannah Grace centres around cop Megan Reed (Shay Mitchell), who’s just out of rehab, and when she takes the graveyard shift in a city hospital morgue, she faces a series of bizarre, violent events caused by an evil entity in one of the corpses.

It begins when the late Hannah Grace (Kirby Johnson), who’s brought in after her parents performed an exorcism upon her, and would you believe it – something went wrong! Hence, “evil will find a new vessel” and it’s going to be Megan! Cue lots of freaky stuff and jump scares.

A Dog’s Way Home – Trailer 1 – Bryce Dallas Howard

A Dog's Way Home
A Dog’s Way Home isn’t – as I thought, a follow-up to 2017’s A Dog’s Purpose, and thanks to Jami (below, in the comments) for the confirmation that that film was followed up by A Dog’s Journey, and a 2008 indirect sequel, The Dogs of Christmas.

However, for this film, it all feels very familiar as we hear the inner monologue of a dog! Oh, we’ve never seen that before!

Apparently, A Dog’s Purpose wasn’t completely terrible, but when so many films are released, I’ll keep track of those I want to see.
