  • Colombiana [Blu-ray] Colombiana | Blu Ray | (09/01/2012) from £4.24  |  Saving you £20.51 (82.10%)  |  RRP £24.99

    As a producer, Luc Besson (The Transporter series, Taken, District B-13) has made extremely profitable B-movie hay out of a fairly strict formula incorporating whisper-thin femme fatales, parkour, Gaultier, and guns. Colombiana, another Besson collaboration with director Olivier Megaton (Transporter 3), doesn't exactly blaze new trails, but the combination of Zoe Saldana's fierce performance and a dash of oddball surrealism sure makes the running time zoom by. Purportedly beginning as a sequel to The Professional, the story follows a beautiful South American assassin bent on rubbing out the murderers of her parents. Unfortunately, the closer she gets to her drug lord prey, the more her own loved ones (including Michael Vartan and an amusingly hambone Cliff Curtis) are put at risk. Things go boom, frequently. Director Megaton handles the action with the rapid-cut, blue-filtered zing common to the Besson factory, but things receive a definite boost via the efforts of Saldana, whose performance combines the intensely physical with an appealing soulfulness. Whether slithering through air ducts in a skin-tight cat suit or using a toothbrush as an impromptu weapon, she somehow manages to maintain an air of beyond-the-call gravitas. Also of note are the scenes of the heroine plying her lethal trade, some of which bear the funky logic-defying influence of Mario Bava's great fugue-state caper movie Danger: Diabolik. Ultimately, although the story elements and secondary character motivations rarely hang together, Colombiana's distinguishing marks help place the film somewhere above the level of guilty pleasure. When pitted against the likes of a mobster with a glass-paneled shark tank for a dance floor, reality can take a seat, frankly. --Andrew Wright

  • Unbroken [Blu-ray] [2014] Unbroken | Blu Ray | (04/05/2015) from £6.00  |  Saving you £18.99 (76.00%)  |  RRP £24.99

    Academy Award® winner Angelina Jolie directs and produces Unbroken an epic drama that follows the incredible life of Olympian and war hero Louis “Louie” Zamperini (Jack O’Connell) who along with two other crewmen survived in a raft for 47 days after a near-fatal plane crash in WWII—only to be caught by the Japanese Navy and sent to a prisoner-of-war camp.

  • Killer Elite [Blu-ray] Killer Elite | Blu Ray | (16/01/2012) from £2.45  |  Saving you £19.00 (76.00%)  |  RRP £24.99

    They're not exactly The Expendables, but the idea of gathering Jason Statham, Clive Owen, and Robert De Niro for special ops duty in Killer Elite gives rise to some basic expectations: and sure enough, there's Statham as the cool, compact trained killer, and De Niro as the grizzled seen-it-all-veteran of some very off-the-record assassinations, and Owen as the smooth-talking (and curiously mustachioed) insider with a mess to clean up. These three fellows might indeed make for a badass team in some international thriller, but this particular international thriller is so ham-handed and breathlessly "stylish" that the actors are stranded amidst the relentless noise. De Niro's character gets kidnapped early in the proceedings (and spends most of the movie off-screen), so Statham must come back on the job and rescue his old killer-in-arms. But there's a bigger plot a-turning, based on Ranulph Fiennes's novel, which was allegedly a real tale of espionage, although this claim has been disputed. (This film is not related to Sam Peckinpah's 1975 film The Killer Elite). Director Gary McKendry serves up some bone-crunching moments, which almost drown out the sound of the tin-ear dialogue, and Owen manages to emerge with dignity intact. That will have to suffice as a recommendation for hard-core action fans. --Robert Horton

  • Lockout [Blu-ray] Lockout | Blu Ray | (20/08/2012) from £4.79  |  Saving you £20.20 (80.80%)  |  RRP £24.99

    Noisy, boisterous, and ruthlessly propulsive, Lockout crams in such an impressive amount of violence, sentimentality, snarky humour, and general preposterousness that it could only have come from the mind of lunatic French filmmaker Luc Besson (the man responsible, one way or another, for The Fifth Element, La Femme Nikita, and The Transporter, among many others). Clichés abound: While the American president's daughter (Maggie Grace, Lost) is on a humanitarian mission to an outer-space maximum-security prison, the prisoners escape and take over. The authorities send Snow (Guy Pearce, Memento), a government agent accused of a crime he didn't commit, to extract the girl--but Snow has his own agenda. The juggling of motivations is just complicated enough, combined with colourful characters and mid-budget special effects, to keep this rambunctious pulp story in constant motion. Pearce, as charming as ever, has been working out a lot (check out those biceps!), and his chemistry with Grace is entirely suitable. The supporting cast throw themselves into their roles with zest. All in all, far more entertaining than anyone might expect. --Bret Fetzer

  • Sunshine [Blu-ray] [2007] Sunshine | Blu Ray | (29/10/2007) from £8.39  |  Saving you £11.60 (58.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

  • Kingdom Of Heaven [Blu-ray] [2005] Kingdom Of Heaven | Blu Ray | (11/12/2006) from £5.95  |  Saving you £14.00 (70.00%)  |  RRP £19.99

    This is the version that die hard Ridley Scott fans have been waiting for an extra 40 minutes of expanded storyline that sheds more light on the motivations of key characters such as the King of Jerusalem (Edward Norton) Sibylla (Eva Green) Godfrey (Liam Neeson) and Balian (Orlando Bloom). An epic film set in Europe and the Middle East Kingdom Of Heaven follows one man's struggle to better himself and the world around him. Orlando Bloom stars as Balian a French blacksmith who is mourning the deaths of his wife and baby when his estranged nobleman father (Liam Neeson) arrives and asks him to join the Crusades in Jerusalem. Mindful that conducting the Lord's work will help him atone for his sins Balian agrees and embarks on the perilous journey. Along the way he reveals his gifts of inherent goodness and fair treatment of all human beings. Upon reaching Jerusalem a city where his meagre beginnings no longer matter Balian earns respect and fealty while secretly courting the capricious wife of the ruthless Guy de Lusignan (Marton Csokas) who seeks a way to destabilise the uneasy Christian-Muslim truce brokered by King Baldwin (Edward Norton) and wage war against his religious enemy... Director Ridley Scott bring the scale of his previous epic Gladiator to this film while confronting hundreds of years of religious conflict. At times controversial in both its content and production difficulties populated by an all-star cast and held together by a sterling central performance from Orlando Bloom Kingdom Of Heaven is a multi-faceted classic of a humble man who chooses his fate instead of accepting the fate given to him at birth.

  • The Last Samurai [Blu-ray] [2003] The Last Samurai | Blu Ray | (02/07/2007) from £6.99  |  Saving you £18.00 (72.00%)  |  RRP £24.99

  • Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters - Unrated Edition [Blu-ray][Region Free] Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters - Unrated Edition | Blu Ray | (24/06/2013) from £5.99  |  Saving you £21.00 (77.80%)  |  RRP £26.99

    There are too many body parts flying around Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters to single out the tongue that has nearly been gnawed off in the cheek of its clever premise that fairy-tale heroes have grown up into savage supernatural mercenaries. Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton strut around like 18th-century Avengers in leather uniforms, cursing up a storm of modern vernacular and bearing an inventive array of historically and mechanically impossible weapons such as grenades, crossbows, tasers, machine guns, and other weapons of witch-killing mass destruction. It's all a big joke of course, and one that the movie wears boldly and without a shred of irony. To quibble with its gaps in narrative logic or be righteously indignant that the script is often a slapdash mess is to miss the point that it's all meant to be a pile of plain old silly fun. After their childhood trauma at the gingerbread house, the famous Teutonic siblings are now in the business of killing witches full time, hiring themselves out to villages plagued by ugly, evil women wearing loads of scary makeup (Famke Janssen being the evilest and scariest) who feed on the townsfolk's kids. They do their job well and the movie spares no opportunity to show the effect of their fantastical arsenal with profusions of firepower, explosions, viscera, and disgusting cartoon violence, decapitation being the most favoured method of killing by the movie and the title characters both. As the latest in the trend of revisionist fairy-tale telling, Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters takes the low road whenever possible, but it does so with a blithe spirit, a foul mouth, and the above-mentioned gore galore to create a B-movie soul that pities any sort of critical over-analysing. It's also pretty funny. There are several inspired offhand moments, such as the missing-children notices slapped on the sides of farmers' milk cans or the way Hansel has to make time for insulin injections because of the gingerbread overdoses he endured at the hand of the proto witch he and Gretel encountered as children. The art direction, wardrobe, and anachronistically engineered props that propel the story all have a cool steampunk design theme and make the silliness pretty hard to resist. Renner, Arterton, and Janssen aren't really taking things too seriously, which is fine because neither are we. This is the American debut of Norwegian director Tommy Wirkola, who brings the same playful gross-out sensibility he did to his 2009 feature Dead Snow. That one was about long-dormant Nazi soldiers rising up as zombies. What fun! It was a lark and a goof, just like Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters. --Ted Fry

  • Safe [Blu-ray] Safe | Blu Ray | (10/09/2012) from £2.99  |  Saving you £12.00 (80.10%)  |  RRP £14.99

    Don't expect a Jason Statham franchise starter à la the Transporter series from Safe. But by all means do expect a flat-out fun-times thriller, with all the bone-crunching stunts and nimbly executed action sequences we've come to expect from the bald British bulldog, whose steely eyes and no-quarter attitude lays bad guys to waste wherever he wanders. And there are plenty of bad guys to go around. There's the Chinese triad mob that has kidnapped and is exploiting a little girl named Mei (Catherine Chan), a hard-nosed cutie with a photographic memory; she's literally a human safe. There's also the Russian mafia, desperate for the long string of numbers locked in Mei's head, which is later revealed to be the combination of an actual safe. Then there's the corrupt squad of elite New York City police department goons who only want money, and after they find out there's a lot of it in said safe, they join the chase too. The mayor's involved as well, along with his mysterious aide, who has a stake in all the above-mentioned parties and who proves to be the figure to bring the plot points into focus. The common thread in all this is, of course, Jason Statham, who plays Luke, a disgraced mixed martial arts champ with a chip on his shoulder because he's now living life as a chump. Luke went down hard after not taking a fall for the Russians, and he's lost his family as a result. Wandering Manhattan in self-imposed internal exile, he's a homeless, depressive loner on the verge of suicide, until he accidentally stumbles into all this safe business by crossing paths with Mei in a moment of preposterous movie coincidence. Sensing the chance for redemption, he starts cracking heads and cracking wise with the Chinese and the Russians. Ditto the cops, with whom it turns out he has some lingering bad business. It's not a bad story by any means and it serves the adventure aspects in ways that are often giddily agreeable. Writer-director Boaz Yakin has the right stuff to make the pieces fit into some semblance of logic, if not always believability. He also handles his star with bare-knuckled exuberance, letting Statham do what we want him to: outwit and out-brawn the villains with gut-busting grace in a nearly uninterrupted string of neatly choreographed set pieces. Safe is actually a little more appealing than the Transporter and Crank movies because of its attention to narrative detail and imaginative battle setups. Statham is a smart actor who may have become pigeonholed by genre, but he consistently satisfies with his deadpan demeanour and genuinely impressive chops--both physical and theatrical. Safe is sound, satisfying entertainment that will delight fans of the action hero and may surprise those who are experiencing his moves as an international star for the first time. --Ted Fry
