  • 10 Cloverfield Lane

    photo for 10 Cloverfield Lane "10 Cloverfield Lane" has been billed as the "spiritual successor" to 2008's "Cloverfield" but in no way is it a sequel -- it's much, much more. Produced by "Cloverfield's" (and "Star Wars: The Force Awakens") J.J. Abrams and his Bad Robot company, the film -- linked to the first in the weirdness, fear and comedy "that Cloverfield was born out of" -- is a claustrophobic ride that combines 1950s bomb-shelter deliriums with this decade's apocalyptic fears of destruction. After breaking up with her boyfriend and leaving her home in New Orleans, a young woman, Michelle (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), is involved in a catastrophic car crash and wakes up in survivalist Howard’s (John Goodman) underground bunker. The man claims to have saved her from an apocalyptic attack that has left the outside world uninhabitable -- either an attack by the "Russkies" or the "Martians" --and his theories are supported by a mysterious stranger, Emmett (John Gallagher Jr.), also in the bunker with them, who claims to have witnessed the attack. As the three settle into a humdrum, underground regime, cracks in Howard's story begin to appear, and Michelle begins to question his motives. The only way to uncover the truth is to make it back to the surface, and Michelle concocts an escape plan with Emmett that sets off a wonderful denouement. First time director Dan Trachtenberg has a fine grasp on the fear and paranoia factor inherent in this scenario, and he takes the time to develop the three characters (with all three actors showing off their talents) before pulling out all the action stops. But as with most good films, it's the story that sets the foundation, and the script here by Josh Campbell, Matthew Stuecken and Damien Chazelle is top notch. This is a quiet little, low-budget gem. Vitals: Director: Dan Trachtenberg. Stars: Mary Elizabeth Winstead, John Goodman, John Gallagher Jr. 2016, CC, MPAA rating: PG-13, 103 min., Sci Fi Horror, Box office gross: $71.455 million, Paramount. Blu-ray extras: Commentary by director Dan Trachtenberg and producer J.J. Abrams, behind-the-scenes footage. 3 stars

  • London Has Fallen

    photo for London Has Fallen "London Has Fallen" is a very big-budget and special effects laden direct sequel to 2013's "Olympus Has Fallen." Secret Service Agent Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) and U.S. President Benjamin Asher (Aaron Eckhart) return to take the brunt of more terrorist action, this time in London. An international arms dealer, whose family was slaughtered in a drone strike, sets out to get even with the West and, when every powerful world leader travels to London to attend the funeral of the British Prime Minster, he sets into motion a plan that assassinates all the heads of the Western world (save President Asher) and devastates the British capital. Not knowing who to trust, Banning and Asher make their way to an MI6 safe house while being tracked by hordes of terrorists. Banning is a killing machine, and he'll stop at nothing to secure Asher's safe return home. Its slam bam, straight ahead action with -- thankfully -- little exposition to get in the way of the slaughter. It's a mindless, fun ride, aided and abetted by Morgan Freeman (as the U.S. vice president), Angela Bassett, Robert Forster, Jackie Earle Haley, Melissa Leo and Radha Mitchell. Vitals: Director: Babak Najafi. Stars: Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, Morgan Freeman, Alon Moni Aboutboul, Angela Bassett, Robert Forster, Jackie Earle Haley, Melissa Leo, Radha Mitchell, Sean O’Bryan, Charlotte Riley, Waleed F. Zuaiter. 2016, CC, MPAA rating: R, 99 min., Action, Box office gross: $60.755 million, Universal. Extras: "The Making of London Has Fallen," "Guns, Knives & Explosives" delves deeper into Gerard Butler's character of Mike Banning, and the extensive training and preparation the actor needed to play a Secret Service agent. 2 stars
