December 2015 Action Movies


I love Star Wars so it is a no brainer that I’ll be watching the The Force Awakens. I’m quite excited for it compared to the last three that came out. I am glad George Lucas has nothing to do with these new movies since he has no clue why the first three were successful. If I ever got around to stumbling across In the Heart of the Sea, I imagine I would find it entertaining and it does star Thor. I am not sure there is enough to make me watch it willingly. A remake of Point Break seems highly unnecessary. I almost fell asleep watching the trailer for MI-5. Close Range and Extraction both have lead actors that are missing the crucial charisma needed to be an action hero. Extraction seems worse since it also has the horrible actress from Haywire and Bruce Willis looks like he’s phoning it in for a paycheck.
