We take a look back at the winners and losers of the first quarter of 2012 in the world of film.
Based on the laughably implausible and cheesy late 1980s Fox television drama, 21 Jump Street fires perfectly on all cylinders to create an experience that will appeal wonderfully to fans of Hot Fuzz and the Bad Boys films.
The interesting, but flawed Haywire stands out as an anomaly in director Steven Soderbergh's recent filmography. It’s a straight up revenge film unconcerned with further reaching implications, but dripping with sexuality and action.
Brothers, buddies, pals and duos have been the life blood of cinematic narrative from the Blues Brothers to Bad Boys. The bond made between two individuals in the name of a cause and in the face of disagreements is the thin but pivotal thread that sews many films together. The Eagle, based on Rosemary Sutcliff’s novel The Eagle of the Ninth, like so many adventures before it, places its weight on the four shoulders of two heroes, played by G.I. Joe’s Channing Tatum and once Billy Elliot, now Jumper Jamie Bell.
