The Wolverine [2013]

Genre: Adventure, Action, Fantasy

Rating: 7/10.

The problem with this movie is it does not have any memorable moments like a Superman movie or a Batman movie. There are a few incredible scenes, but nothing more than that. The Wolverine fan in me has probably rated this a bit high, but its better than the X-Men Origins which came out a few years back.

Green Zone [2010]

Genre: Drama, Action, Thriller

Rating: 8/10.

Compelling story about the US forces take on the Iraq situation. Paul Greengrass handles the story well by tapping into the conspiracy which devours us, and Matt Damon is good at his antics. If you liked The Hurt Locker, you should like this. Its somewhat similar along the same line.

Fast & Furious 6 [2013]

Genre: Action, Crime, Thriller

Rating: 7/10.

Watch this movie only as a pure entertainer and not expecting a sensible film-making. The action scenes are terrific. There are too many cliches in the movie. The Rock has literally become a human hulk. His body size and arms have doubled from his WWE days. There’s one terrific scene on a bridge which is not to be missed. Just pure entertainment.

Star Trek Into Darkness [2013]

Genre: Action, Sci-Fi, Adventure

Rating: 7/10.

Was a tad disappointed with this because the first movie was damn good, so the expectations were high. Not that its bad. Benedict Cumberbatch is brilliant. He owns the movie all the way. The bickering between Kirk & Spock is funny at times. The visuals are brilliant though. But the movie feels kind of a let down in the second half. Lots of cliches. The rest of the crew could have had a little more screen time. Even Cumberbatch could have done with more screen time.

Iron Man 3 [2013]

Genre: Sci-Fi, Action, Thriller

Rating: 8/10.

This is far better than the last movie. Robert Downey Jr. is as great as ever. And Ben Kingsley is superb in his role. Guy Pearce should have got some more screen time but is good in whatever role he has. Don Cheadle is also good, but his war machine could have been better. The action is great and there is some dark humor in it too.

Ip Man 2 [2010]

Genre: Action, Biography, Drama

Rating: 8/10.

Following the sequence of the first movie, Ip Man now is settled in Hong Kong and continues his legacy over there. The action scenes are a little wired, but still great to watch. Donnie Yen is still in top form. There’s a brilliant fight scene featuring Ip Man and Hong. And the final fight between Ip Man and the English boxer. The ending is a little bit of Rocky IV. But the movie is still a treat to watch.

Ip Man [2008]

Genre: Action, Biography, Drama

Rating: 8.5/10.

One of the best martial arts movies of the last decade. A tale about Yip Man who was the first martial arts teacher who taught Wing Chun. Donnie Yen is brilliant as Yip Man; just watch his fists move up, down, left and right like a machine. Not sure how much of the story is actual truth, but the action scenes are fantastic. Bruce Lee was his actual student in real life.
