My rating: 4 out of 5

Rocky Balboa is a struggling boxer trying to make the big time. Working in a meat factory in Philadelphia for a pittance, he also earns extra cash as a debt collector. When heavyweight champion Apollo Creed visits Philadelphia, his managers want to set up an exhibition match between Creed and a struggling boxer, touting the fight as a chance for a “nobody” to become a “somebody”. The match is supposed to be easily won by Creed, but someone forgot to tell Rocky, who sees this as his only shot at the big time.

Det här är säkert en film som man ska ha sett som ung för att uppsakatta den riktigt mycket i dagens läge. Ungefär som Karate Kid. Tyvärr ser jag den först nu och.. Det är en bra film. Riktigt bra. Men den är ändå inte den toppfilmen som många säger att den är.


When the system breaks down…
someone is about to get rich.

My rating: 3 out of 5

Two mismatched lawmen are on the trail of an unusually talented criminal in this crime thriller. Quentin Conners (Jason Statham) is a veteran police detective who is less than pleased when he’s assigned a new partner, Shane Dekker (Ryan Phillippe). While Conners has been with the force for years, Dekker is a rookie, and it doesn’t take Conners long to realize his partner has a lot to learn about the nuts and bolts of investigation. However, the two are forced to put aside their differences when they’re given an important new case to crack — a brilliant thief (Wesley Snipes) has masterminded a series of high-stakes bank heists, and the police are baffled as to how he seems to know what they’re up to just as soon as they do. Chaos also stars Justine Waddell as a police officer who has become involved with one of the detectives.

Simpel film. Men det var vad jag förväntade mig. Är ju ett fan av Jason Statham. Han spelar sin vanliga roll i filmen. En liten tvist på slutet och Statham gör att det blir en trea.
Underhållande film, men den tillför inget nytt.
Synd att det aldrig blev en fight Statham vs Snipes.
