12 Monkeys is a SciFi with Bruce travelling in time to stop an epidemic that will wipe out mankind. Masterfully directed it has a surreal feel to it but you find yourelf drawn into it. Includes great parts by Madeline Stowe and Brad Pitt.
Mercury Rising has Bruce protecting an autistic child that solves a code in a puzzle from a company that will stop at nothing to ensure it is kept unsolvable.
The Jackal has Bruce playing an assassin that is planning to take out a prominent American politician. It has an outstanding cast including Jack Black, Sidney Poitier, and Richard Gere.
Good quality DVDs with great replayability. If you enjoyed these catch "Hostage" and "Striking Distance".
12 MONKEYS (1995) - special edition
Rated-R / 2 hours & 10 mins.
This is a fascinating sci-fi movie with lots of twists and turns. It almost reminds me of "The Outer Limits." The movie is very complex and almost haunting in it's surrealism. Bruce Willis gave one of his best dramatic performances ever as James Cole, a man sent back in time to save the world. I enjoyed the character of Kathryn Railly (played by b-movie queen, Madeleine Stowe) very much, as well, because she added both a sense of realism and continuity. Brad Pitt as the resident kook, Jeffrey Goines, was just all over the place. The guy was a little nutty but it was pretty hot when he pulled his pants down. "12 Monkeys" is the type of movie that will invoke thought and discussion. I don't want to give it away but this is also not the type of movie that is all tied up once you finish it. The 2005 DVD includes the original trailer as well as a featurette.
MERCURY RISING (1998) - collector's edition
Rated-R / 1 hour & 52 mins.
The film starts out with Art (Bruce) as an undercover FBI agent inside a bank trying to negotiate with the criminals. He was close to getting the entire bank free of harms way, but when the place is stormed and there is bloodshed Art totally loses his cool and clocks the guy in charge. So much for diplomacy. After being demoted, Art is put in charge of investigating the mysterious disappearance of Simon Lynch (played the Miko Hughes, the smartass from "Full House.")
THE JACKAL (1997) - collector's edition
Rated-R / 2 hours & 5 mins.Read more ›
The first is 12 Monkeys which stars Willis,Brad Pitt,Christopher Plummer,David Morse and a nice part played by veteran comic impersonator/actor Frank Gorshin.The movie is directed by Terry Gilliam and here he utilizes his favourite backdrop of a kind of retro-futuristic look,much like his world in Brazil.Willis is a convicted criminal who,to earn a pardon,is picked to go back to the past to obtain a sample of a virus that has decimated humanity.He lands in different spots in the past and loses sight of what is reality and what isn't many times.The virus,he has been told,was spread by a group of radicals led by wacko Brad Pitt called the 12 Monkeys.However it is not them but David Morse who works in the laboratory led by Christopher Plummer who takes the virus on an around the world trip to spread it.The film ends with a recurring dream Bruce Willis has had playing out in its entirety;he dying and his younger self witnessing the event.
The film is certainly a complicated animal and while one can appreciate the ability of Gilliam to finally connect all the dots in the end,it is a hard movie to follow for the average viewer.You really have to pay attention or you might find yourself scratching your head more often than once.You may even have to view it a couple more times to really "get" it.But then again if the viewer is put off in the original viewing,they are not likely to watch it again and again.Read more ›
