2016 Current Hollywood Movies Review:

'Jack Reacher: Never Go Back': Film Review

Tom Cruise returns in this sequel based on Lee Child's books about a wrong-righting former military police commander.
If there had been any doubt, the tepid Jack Reacher: Never Go Back firmly establishes the adaptations of Lee Child's books about a wrong-righting former military police commander as Tom Cruise's B-unit action film series at Paramount, compared with his ongoing luxury-brand Mission: Impossible franchise.
By-the-numbers plotting, seen-it-all-before action moves, banal locations and a largely anonymous cast alongside the star give this a low-rent feel. The initial entry opened to $15.2 million on its first weekend four Decembers ago, on its way to a $218 million worldwide haul, and the follow-up can be expected to land in the same ballpark.
Based on the 18th of Child's 20 Reacher best-sellers, the film serves up nothing that hasn't been seen in countless action films before, and it's striking how little effort appears to have been made to give it any distinction: The villains are military guys gone rogue, the female lead is basically fighting the same fight Rosalind Russell did to be recognized for her equal worth among men in His Girl Friday more than 75 years ago, the hand-to-hand combat won't make anyone's highlight reel and even the star looks a bit pale and out of training compared with the shape he invariably gets himself into for the far more elaborate and fun Mission outings.
The film also marks quite a step down, in both ambition and accomplishment, from Cruise and director Edward Zwick's previous collaboration on The Last Samurai 16 years ago. It's even a notable drop-off from the first Reacher feature, which brandished some decent mystery-thriller elements, a very good and realistic car chase, Rosamund Pike in the female lead, juicy supporting turns by Robert Duvall and Werner Herzog and fine Caleb Deschanel cinematography.

Critic's Picks: Tom Cruise's Performances, Ranked Worst to Best
This one, by contrast, has little to write home about. For a guy who's been out of the military for a while, Reacher (no one calls him Jack) still can't manage to stay away from soldiers and their institutions. Unfortunately, most of them are up to no good, as he finds out when he pops into Washington to check out the woman who now has his old job, Major Susan Turner (Cobie Smulders). Unfortunately, their potential date will have to wait, as she's just been arrested for espionage, although this gives him an excuse to prove how slick he is by rescuing her from the high-tech prison where she's held.
This puts him at odds with a Blackwater-like security firm that seems to be running the show and is both willing and anxious to rub out anyone who's on to its big-time weapons and drug dealing. Narratively, the film is almost entirely nuts and bolts, with Reacher and Susan literally on the run most of the time from a coolly efficient assassin (Patrick Heusinger) simply called The Hunter who, in one-on-one combat, can give Reacher a pretty hard time.
The one real twist in the strictly mechanical script by Richard Wenk (the very recent The Magnificent Seven), Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz (the latter two now a very long way from Thirtysomething days) is the presence of a teenager, Samantha (Danika Yarosh), who may or may not be Reacher's daughter from a relationship 16 years earlier. Left largely to her own devices by her mother, Samantha ends up accompanying the pair to New Orleans, where the trio scenically arrive just as the Halloween parade is about to swing into action.
We just see snippets of the locals celebrating as only these locals can, however, as Reacher and The Hunter have it out on the rooftops of the French Quarter while the revelers party on obliviously below. As ever, Reacher is most into hand-to-hand combat, as is The Hunter, resulting in some pretty intense bone-crushing snaps, jabs and well-placed slugs. But there's nothing that hasn't been seen innumerable times before, and in neither style nor substance do Zwick and his writers bring anything new to the genre table here.

'Jack Reacher 2' Teaser: Tom Cruise Returns to Help Cobie Smulders
The one element that puts a smidgen of snap in the proceedings is something resembling a rivalry between Reacher and Susan in which the latter introduces the gender issue. Unfortunately, neither the screenwriters nor the actors know quite where they want to take this little skirmish of the sexes (not very far, obviously), nor do they have the flair to handle it in a witty fashion, which leaves the matter just sitting out there on a limb.
For an actor who usually seems all-in no matter what he's doing, Cruise comes off as somewhat less engaged than usual here, just going through the motions compared to, certainly, his last Mission: Impossible outing. Committed most noticeably to the physical side of her performance, Smulders can't or won't offer up the humor that might have struck some sparks with her co-star, while Yarosh, sidelined through much of the New Orleans interlude, doesn't have much real to work with as the fraught would-be daughter.
Undistinguished visually, this marks a return to the old days, when sequels were almost always markedly inferior to originals that spawned them.

2016 Latest Hollywood English Movies Review:

‘A Wedding’ (‘Noces’): Film Review | Rome Film Festival 2016

Courtesy of Jour2Fete
A probing family drama carried by a strong multicultural cast.  TWITTER

Writer-director Stephan Streker was inspired by true events in this tale of a Pakistani family torn apart by their daughter’s desire to break free of their grasp.
A slow-burning, skillfully performed study of family malaise and religious subjugation, Stephan Streker’s A Wedding (Noces) follows a young Pakistani girl living in Belgium who’s forced into an arranged marriage by her deeply traditional parents.

Featuring a superb international cast that includes newcomer Lina El Arabi in the lead role, Sebastien Houbani (Geronimo) as her domineering brother and Iranian actor Babak Karimi (A Separation, The Salesman) as a father blinded by his own orthodox convictions, this intimately probing drama has already received prizes during its festival run in France, with international premieres in Toronto and Rome. European theatrical bids for this co-production are certain, while overseas art houses may want to pay this Wedding a visit.

First seen at a doctor’s office discussing a possible abortion, Zahira (El Arabi) is a rather pugnacious and self-assured college student living with her Muslim Pakistani parents (Karimi and Neena Kulkarni) and brother, Amir (Houbani), in a quiet Belgian suburb. Like most girls her age — including her childhood best friend, Aurora (Alice de Lencquesaing) — she wants to be able make her own choices in life, including which boys she can date and what she may eventually do for a career.

‘Sugar Fields’ (‘Flor de Azucar’): Film Review
But Zahira’s father and mother have other plans for her, offering her the sole option of choosing between three possible candidates she will be obliged to marry back in their native Pakistan. And although the lucky winner (Harmandeep Palminder, memorable in the coming-of-age immigrant drama Young Tiger) seems like a nice enough guy, he and the whole idea of marriage are far from Zahira’s mind, especially after she falls for a local mechanic (Zacharie Chasseraiud) who offers her a possible way out.

Set primarily within the confines of Zahira’s apartment and her father’s modest grocery store, A Wedding has a chamber piece feel to it that grows increasingly claustrophobic as our heroine’s options start to run out. The drab Belgian backdrops, not to mention the overwhelming feeling of family oppression, bring to mind the work of Joachim Lafosse — especially his ripped-from-the-headlines drama Our Children, which also dealt with a young woman crushed by a relentless patriarch.

‘Asura: The City of Madness’: Film Review
The difference here is in Streker’s depiction of Zahira’s father, Mansoor, show to be a kindhearted man who can’t escape the weight of deep-rooted traditions, and is willing to lose everything to prove that his beliefs have not been thwarted by life in Europe. The scene where Mansoor confronts Andre (Dardenne brothers stalwart Olivier Gourmet), the father of Aurora and a longtime family friend, is among the film’s finest, with Karimi channeling both the stubbornness and despair of a father who refuses to allow his daughter to slip away from him, less out of love than out of pride.

El Arabi and Houbani also are excellent as siblings whose relationship becomes severely strained by Zahira’s decision to stray from her family’s chosen path, with the devout and troubled Amir forced to do his dad’s bidding when the latter suffers a health scare. If Amir’s ultimate gesture — one that was apparently inspired by true events — seems extreme to say the least, Streker sets the stage for it in a believable way, creating a pressure-cooker atmosphere that boils over when Zahira ultimately decides to stand her ground.
