It may not have the most engaging plot, but it is a slow, steady build that is pervaded with a harsh, fleeting beauty.

Touching, poignant and thought-provoking, and ultimately it calls for understanding as opposed to blind, crippling narrow-mindedness.

Poster for The Raid 2

The Raid 2

A strong, progressive directorial effort from Evans, and it succeeds as both an inexorably violent action film and a solidly executed criminal drama.

Poster for Non-Stop

There are some exciting moments and a few surprising twists, but in the end it does little to differentiate itself from other action-thriller films...

Focussing on average families and on average people makes the film’s hunt, and its moral quandaries, resonant and disquieting long after it ends.
