DEN OF THIEVES

Although imperfect, "Den of Thieves" continues the run of solid January films. Every day, $120mm in cash is taken out of circulation and destroyed by the Los Angeles Branch of the Federal Reserve - unless a notorious, elite crew of bank robbers can pull off the ultimate heist and get to the money first... right under the noses of LA's most feared division in law enforcement. 

After racking my brain for a few hours, I've started to finalize my opinion on this film. Why was I racking my brain for an hour? Because this film isn't bad by any means. In fact, the initial impression was that it was really good. But after waiting 10 minutes I was like 'I feel empty'. That's because this movie was pretty messy, but it's undeniably an interesting ride with some really great execution at times.

One thing that was great about this film was Gerald Butler. He really shined in this role and it was one of the better roles I've seen him in. I think his physicality and personality really personified who this character was. Guys like O'Shea Jackson Jr. and Pablo Schreiber did well, adding on that no one else really stood out. Butler carried the show and brought a lot to his role. That's not to say the characters were done perfectly, even though they were done interestingly, but the performances behind them were overall all around solid. Another thing great about this film was the shootouts and the sound design. There's really only a couple of shootouts in this film but when they happen, they're very intense. They're gritty, riveting, and they're accompanied by a sweet sound design. The sounds all sound amazing, whether it's the sound of bullets firing everywhere or a simple car revving up, everything sounds great. The shootouts were not only entertaining, but they were very realistic and gritty. Those stood out to me and genuinely make this film general in that regards.

Now onto the bad aspects. While the characters themselves were interesting, they never felt complete. You're able to see insight into Butler's character and it's established what kind of guy he is, but it never really goes anywhere. I feel like we know what type of character everyone here is but we don't really know anything other than personality. There's an attempt to introduce things such as family life, but it never really goes anywhere. If anything, the allotted runtime was present, they just decided to throw in too many variables. It's what made this film messy, narratively weak, and underwhelming.

The film tried to be smart in terms of story and dialogue, but it never reached that level. It wanted to surprise you like most crime films do, but it was very weak in that department. While the execution was solid there was nothing unique or mind blowing about what they did here. In fact, it was flat out insensible sometimes. Overall, Hell of a script, Gerard's strongest performance since 300 and Olympus Has Fallen. Unexpected twists, Good heist movie, I expected more action but the plan of the heist keeps you engaged throughout the film. I'm keeping A MAN APART on top of this list of crime thrillers. It's worth a watch. I give this a very enthusiastic High MATINEE!

Black Panther Teaser 2018

BLACK PANTHER IMAX

Well Hollywood, congratulations on donning your first pair of progressives. First we got to see from the other eye of gender with Wonder Woman, and now, we’re finally given a clear vision of a fully fledged comic book hero from the heart of Africa. It took far too long, but it was worth the wait, because like Wonder Woman, Black Panther isn’t just a complete re-ordering of the muscular white male status quo. It’s also a fantastic film. Is it perfect? No. The film suffers from the same problems that plague most comic book fantasies: Emotions are distilled into high-contrast love and hate, characters never feel truly relatable as a result of their superpowers, and the complexities of the human condition are compressed into short, predictably punchy speeches.

That’s the way the genre works. In this case, it’s actually an advantage because it proves the superhero formula can transcend any race, religious or even species boundary. Black Panther is the percussion blast we all need right now, so tip your hat to Ryan Coogler (Creed, Fruitvale Station), the director and co-writer of a modern classic that addresses the deep fault lines in American society without compromising action movie fundamentals. In fact, the action may be what gives Coogler such leeway because it’s a huge distraction from the deeper issue of African-American identity, which is the deep vein that gives Black Panther its diamond claws. Opening in Oakland, California some 20 odd years ago, Black Panther introduces us to its titular character in the opening scene. While two men make plans for some criminal act involving firearms, an African king appears out of nowhere to remind them of who they are, and why they should never resort to violence. They resist, the king responds and before you know it, we’re watching a young prince named T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) be crowned the new king of Wakanda, and given the superhuman abilities of The Black Panther — just like his father before him.

The potent secret lies in a special flower that only grows in Wakanda, an African nation that also happens to have the world’s largest supply of Vibranium, a rare earth element that has the power to create the world’s most powerful weapons (this is what made Captain America’s Shield).  For eons, the Wakandans denied the existence of huge vibranium reserves in their homeland. Yet, they’ve created a huge, futuristic city with their resources — and successfully hidden it from the entire world. In this universe, a small African nation is the most advanced culture on the planet — home to space age vehicles, futuristic weapons and a fully educated population. Yet, because the people of Wakanda fear war over their resources, their advanced culture remains a secret. As a result, their African neighbors, as well as black people all over the world, remain oppressed. For a kid living in Oakland, California, Wakanda’s big secret becomes a life obsession. Erik Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan) watched a strange blue light fly over the projects the night his father was killed. He discovered his family had a connection to a magical world, and that he, too, had Wakandan roots. Eager to reclaim his own history, and his own traditions, Killmonger researches Wakandan artifacts and eventually learns enough to challenge T’Challa for the Wakandan throne. His goal is to emancipate and empower black people all over the world using advanced Wakandan technology, but also to reap revenge and kill the oppressor. Overall, Black Panther is fun to watch, and Coogler successfully pulls it off by ensuring all the small, token roles and significant sidekicks are played by white actors (Martin Freeman, who I think served a better purpose in this film than he did in Captain America: Civil War). There’s a white foe with a South African accent, as well, thanks to Andy Serkis. But the key parts, and the central drama unfolds within Wakanda, where one black prince must face off against another.

By keeping the central plots concentrated in this magical landscape, and by keeping the cultural references rooted in African imagery, Black Panther quietly — but forcefully — reaffirms the subversive message originally delivered by raising a clenched fist. The imagery terrified white power, but Marvel Comics embraced this alternate point of view back in 1966, shortly after activists Bobby Seale and Huey Newton first formed the Black Panther Party to police the police in Oakland. Coogler brings us full-circle and fuses the two Black Panther ideas together in the opening scene by taking us back to the projects in Oakland. Yet, for all the inherent rage spurred by injustice, Coogler refuses to celebrate violence. As a reader and collector of Comic Books, I say this to new fans of this genre: “Y’all better hop on this, it’s a great time to be a fan of comic book films!” Black Panther is not only just a great piece of cinema in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it’s a celebration for all people, doesn’t matter what color you are, where you come from, just go out and show your support, but do it in IMAX. Now if you’ve been watching these Marvel films since 2008, then you should know that you need to remain in your seat until after the credits are over!!! This is a very enthusiastic High Full Price!!! Bring on the next chapter in May, Avengers: Infinity War!!!
