actor: Mickey Rourke


November 11, 2011
Effective January 1st, 2009, The Dove Foundation Review Team has ceased reviewing all NC-17 rated movies and certain extraordinarily explicit R-rated films. This decision was reached due to the fact that Dove reviewers are parents or grandparents with conservative values. As such, we feel that we [...]

The Expendables

August 13, 2010
The story isn't bad. A woman is dedicated to her people and she is involved in an assassination attempt against someone she knows very well. We won't plot spoil by saying who it is, but it turns out to be a bit surprising. She is loyal to her country and decides to stay after a failed attempt to [...]

Iron Man 2

May 7, 2010
"Iron Man 2" features Tony Stark with more of a "devil may care" attitude than ever. He gets drunk in the film, says "Yes, Dear" to a senator, makes lewd remarks and inserts Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow) as the CEO of his company, despite a lot of opposition. Yet he is heroic at times and refuses [...]

"Domino" is a wildly bizarre movie that is hard to follow. In fact, if you were to take a book and tear out all of the chapters, then mix them all up and read it, you would have accomplished the same thing as director Tony Scott did with this movie. Then, add as much sex, language, violence and [...]

April 1, 2005
This movie was an atrocious waste of a remarkable cast which reads like a guest list at the Emmy’s. Quentin Taratino was only an assistant director but this film evidences his style. I found myself lost at times trying to follow all three stories in the plot, which was made difficult by the [...]

This film is based on a true story, although in real life it is uncertain as to what really happened to Shergar, the famous racing horse. The story has excitement and mystery as Kevin, a young man who is an orphan, steals Shergar to save his life once he learns the horse is to be killed. It has [...]

Animal Factory

October 20, 2000
In the press notes, we are told that America has gone on a correctional “binge,” incarcerating a higher percentage of its population than in any other country. The film then proceeds to show us that life in prison is tortuous. It is a constant vigil to protect oneself from senseless brutality [...]

Get Carter

October 6, 2000
A typical formulaic actioneer with tons of swagger and posterior-kicking fury, “Get Carter” is marred by brutal excessiveness – a malady that often passes for entertainment in this genre. Stallone proved in “Rocky” that he had some depth as an actor, but he has always been forced to [...]
