47 Meters Down

"47 Meters Down" makes the point, in a big way, that Murphy's law is still around—what can go wrong usually does. In this case, when Kate and her younger sister Lisa decide to go down in a cage under the water to see sharks up close, the winch breaks, and they end up 47 meters down below; hence, [...]

The Transporter 2 – Filtered

January 10, 2006
"Transporter 2" is an OK action movie where Bruce Lee meets MacGyver. The main character is portrayed as a gentle man on the outside who fiercely uses his martial arts skills to single-handedly gain victory over the bad guys. It is actually a fairly violent movie, much of which is not filtered out. [...]
