Angel Has Fallen – The DVDfever Cinema Review

Angel Has Fallen follows on from 2013’s Olympus Has Fallen, which I thought was brilliant, and 2016’s London Has Fallen, which I found to be even better, so where did things go wrong with Angel Has Fallen? The film starts off well enough (well, after 15 minutes of padding, which made me wonder when the […]

Hunter Killer on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Hunter Killer – I can’t say it’s ‘Die Hard on a submarine’, since (a) it’s not, and (b) that was claimed by the so-so Under Siege in 1992. You don’t watch Gerard Butler action films for their Oscar-winning scripts, but for the bangs and crashes. And both Olympus Has Fallen and London Has Fallen were […]

Mechanic Resurrection on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Mechanic Resurrection? Well, yes, Jason Statham‘s character pretended to die at the end of the first one, but no-one really tries to bury a potential franchise from the off. Still, would it make any difference either way, since the guy plays the same person in every film he makes. Dom RobinsonReviewer of movies, videogames and […]

London Has Fallen – The DVDfever Review

London Has Fallen begins with the news that the Prime Minister is dead. For world leaders, it’s a time of great sadness. You could imagine what the reaction would be like on Twitter and Facebook, but that doesn’t get covered here. A funeral soon takes place and a number of dignitaries are invited to attend, […]

The Expendables 3: Extended Edition on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

The Expendables 3 is out to buy on Blu-ray and DVD, just before Christmas arrives, as also happened in 2010 and 2012 with the first two films, but this time round, we have the film in an extended form. “Hurrah!”, I thought. Since we were so bereft of blood and guts in the cinema version, […]

The Expendables 3 – The DVDfever cinema review

The Expendables 3 is, obviously, the third in the, hopefully, just a trilogy of films about aging action stars getting cameos in a last throw of the dice, for some of them. The first one, directed by Sylvester Stallone, had a great opening 10 minutes, a great final 30 minutes, and naff all inbetween. The […]

The Expendables 2 on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Right, the plot of The Expendables 2 is…., erm….. Well, they’re either going into difficult situations to free someone or rescue something important, but then later on they have a bigger issue with going after Jean-Claude Van Damme whose character’s name I didn’t catch during the film, but the credits simply list as “Villain”. Not […]

The Mechanic (2011) on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

The Mechanic: Now, are you familiar with the works of Oscar Wilde? Because Jason Statham isn’t. He plays Arthur Bishop, a cold, emotionless hitman who does his best to make the hits look like accidents, as if no-one was ever there to commit a murder, and this starts with killing a gangster boss in his […]

Rambo (2008) on Blu-ray – The DVDfever Review

Rambo is back, and this time he’s in Thailand to sort out the 60-year civil war between the Burmese police and the Karen people, who are routinely killed, sometimes for sport. It doesn’t start out that way, though. He leads a simple life taking travellers here and there in his boat and also capturing snakes […]
