I inexplicably felt compelled to share the trailer from Born To Fight, a movie about a group of Thai athletes who foil an evil terrorist plot to take over a rural village by using their sports skills. There is lots of face kicking!
On Thanksgiving I am thankful for Transporter 3, which featured:
Shirtless Jason Statham punching people.
Shirtless Jason Statham waking up with a bomb on his wrist
Shirt-fu, an ancient martial art which requires one to fight while ripping off one’s shirt in order to use it to subdue one’s opponents.
This movie was better than I expected, even though it didn’t reach the heights of comic book movie awesomeness that was Iron Man. There were plenty of jokey cameos and CGI Hulk looked very shiny. I was hoping for some slightly more innovative action sequences since Louis Leterrier worked on both Transporter movies. Still it wasn’t a bad way to spend a summer evening. Also, Robert Downey Jr. continues to be hot.
Iron Man was really the perfect beginning to the summer movie season. I saw it Saturday and Sunday. It has been a long long time since a movie truly showcased Robert Downey Jr’s hotness. And he’s quite hot in Iron Man. It feels like something that was horribly wrong with the world has been restored. And, did I mention the hotness?
