The Hurricane Heist

March 9, 2018
The Hurricane Heist is better in some ways than I expected, at least during the first half of the movie. Human interest stories are nicely handled and the characters are very human, dealing with feelings of loss and uncertainty. The film opens with Hurricane Andrew in 1992, and two young brothers [...]

Taken 3

On a positive note, Tom Welling, the lead actor in the "Smallville" TV series, does show he can play a lead [...]
