Non-Stop Movie Review

Non-Stop (U/A)

Length: - 1 hr. 50 min.

Non-Stop film is a typical Liam Neeson thriller which is a bit entertaining watch. If you liked some of his movies in the recent time, you will like this one too. Film does deliver what it was supposed to deliver. It’s a fun to watch, the suspense is maintained till the time it should have been. Liam Neeson does a good job like his most of the films. Pace of the film is neither too fast, yet brisk enough to keep you engage thinking about what’s happening in it. The dialogue which are being shown in the trailer are arranged in a different sequence in this film to make it interesting.

Bill Marks (Liam Neeson) an Air Marshall is flying from New York to London on a flight he use to travel frequently that’s why some of the attendants known him personally. Things gets tuff when someone breach the security network and tells Marks that he is gonna kill someone every 20 minutes. Bill Marks is trying to find the suspects meanwhile he is accused of hijacking the plane and branded terrorist. These circumstances makes it difficult to find the actual criminal after which the flight passengers also attacks to literally kill him. Does Bill Marks finds the actual criminal? What happens to the charges putted on him?

Non-Stop movie has a simple while its execution works out really well. This isn’t a great film but yet it’s a decent time pass entertainer. It can be watched once; hopefully it will not disappoint you. If like watching a thriller film with somewhat known plot, you can probably give this one a shot. Julianne Moore is fine a short supportive role. Overall, I will say Non-Stop is a bad choice for one time watch.

Verdict: - Good for one time watch

Ratings:- 3 / 5 Stars

Common trends in Leonardo DiCaprio's films

1. Does some of weird things

In most of Leonardo Dicaprio movies he is always seen doing something weird or strange like in the movie The Great Gatsby he gives party irrespective of any occasion. In a similar way he does the same in his recent movie The Wolf of Wall Street he spends money like anything in partying and celebrating almost all the time. The way he pursues anything is also strange in most of his films & that’s what makes him a famous actor i.e. his uniqueness towards anything and everything. Leonardo’s strangeness cannot be explained but it can only be experienced like his etiquette and mannerism. If you watch his films regularly, you will definitely become his fan.  

2. Flirting all the time

Dicaprio can be seen flirting all the time in his most of his films meanwhile he is mostly focused towards one girl in a film. In The Great Gatsby he wants to get his old girlfriend back while in The Wolf of Wall Street he wants to get a girl whom he meets in a party and gets attracted to her immediately. In Titanic movie Leonardo wants to be with a girl whom he meets in the ship.

Most of the girls he wants so badly are involved with someone else in a relationship in his films. This is true for three movie i.e. Titanic, The Great Gatsby & The Wolf of Wall Street.

3. Highly talented but still struggling

Leonardo is a highly talented whether it is in real or the reel life. In the film Inception he specializes in a specific type of security subconscious security meanwhile in The Wolf of Wall Street he is expert Stock Broker. In films like The Great Gatsby it’s not made clear that what he specializes in but he is really talented in what he do that makes in highly successful person both in the films as well as real life.

He struggles to clear charges which is being putted on him in the film Inception meanwhile somewhat similar at one point of time in the filmThe Wolf of Wall Street. In Titanic and The Great Gatsby he struggles to get the girl he wants.

4. Rich Tycoon

Leonardo’s most of the film shows him as a rich tycoon although some exceptions exist like Titanic. But, yes in his recent films he is actually shown quiet rich like The Wolf of Wall Street and The Great Gatsby.

In spite of being rich or poor he is never shown to have control on the way he spends the money. The richer his character is in the film more he spends the money in many cases on less worthy stuffs.

5. His life is a mystery

Although everything is made clear in most of Dicaprio’s movies but still his life is somewhat secretive like The Great Gatsby it’s never shown how he becomes rich from a poor guy. Although some of the things are being unfolded in his films but still there is some sort of confusion related to some of the events in his life. In the movie Inception his character goes through multilayered unfolding but still there are many things which remains disclosed.

6.  Doesn’t get a girl in the end

In some of Leonardo’s films he doesn’t get the girl he is chasing for almost all the time in the film. True for the films The Great Gatsby and Titanic. In Inception his wife was already dead so there wasn’t even a chance of getting her back. In The Wolf of Wall Street his second wife whom he loves the most also gives him divorce.

7. Highly focused on his work

Whatever Leonardo’s character does in a film, he is highly focused towards that. His character doesn’t get distracted even from the most horrible and shocking conditions but rather puts every possible effort to get the things done. In Inception he is focused to get back to his home to meet his children by doing last job.In The Wolf of Wall Street at one point of time his drug addicted character is unable to make a move yet he puts an never ending effort to do what he wants to do. in The Great Gatsby he almost knows that his ex. girlfriend is married and its hard to get her back.

Lone Survivor Movie Review

Lone Survivor (U/A)

Length: - 2hrs. 1 min.

Lone Survivor is based on true events of US Navy SEAL’s, who are on a mission to catch Taliban leader, Ahmad Shah. Lone Survivor is based on a book which is a non-fiction story of the American soldiers set somewhere in Afghanistan. The film has sets which actually looks quiet realistic and believable. At one point of time people falling from a mountain seems a little overstretched. The never ending war scenes which constitutes of excellent camera work, continuous gunshots and injured officers struggling to survive.

 Director Peter Berg never takes a single wrong step for making this film a satisfying and engaging watch. The whole story is about survival of Marcus Lattrell (Mark Wahlberg) while fighting against an army. Marcus along with his three teammates lands in Afghanistan & comes in a situation of dilemma when seen by three villagers. If Marcus and his teammates let them go; they will die.

The mission of capturing the Taliban leader actually fails meanwhile how these Navy officers struggle to survive. Excellent cinematography makes this film even more watchable. Sometimes the brutal scenes are hard to watch like a guy stitching his wounds is shown so close that you may be shaked while watching it. If you cannot watch violent action scenes you may have hard time to watch this one. Overall, Lone Survivor is entirely watchable and enjoyable.    


Verdict: - Nice 

Ratings:-  3.5/ 5 Stars

Main Tera Hero Movie Trailer Review

Main Tera Hero is an upcoming Bollywood romantic comedy film. Main Tera hero is being directed by a well-known comedy filmmaker David Dhawan. Film’s main cast includes new but known actors. Varun Dhawan last seen in “Student of the Year” looks physically much fit from his previous film. Varun Dhawan is also the actual of David Dhawan meanwhile it’s probably first time in the Bollywood history that a father is making second film for his son. Main Tera Hero female cast includes Ileana D’Cruz & Nargis Fakhri. Both of them had done just couple of Bollywood films before this. Main Tera Hero is releasing on 4th April 2014.

Main Tera Hero is a youth centric film which has most of its ingredients like witty lines and some of the youth craziness. From the trailer it doesn’t seems that Main Tera Hero will turn out be a good film. Probably, because of the fact that there isn’t any problem statement in the film it’s just a good collection of romantic comedy stuffs. But, for a truly great film there has to be some sort of conflict, problem etc. to engage the audience or viewers. Otherwise, how long you gonna watch a film with just some crazy witty lines and youth centric environment.

Star cast of the film is interesting; two charming new Bollywood actress along with new Bollywood actor. Trailer of Main Tera Hero which was released about a month back is about to touch 3 million views. This shows the interest of viewers towards the film that they actually wanna watch this one. India has a huge youth population which definitely raises the expectations from the youth centered films to be a big box office success. Overall, in my opinion this film doesn’t seems worth watching from the trailer.

Verdict: -   Average
