actor: Paul Walker

Furious 7

"Furious 7" has an action-packed and fast-paced plot, as one would suspect. It also features the last performance of Paul Walker as Brian O'Conner; as most people probably know, Walker died near the end of making this movie. To the filmmakers' credit, they give him an appropriate send-off in the [...]

Brick Mansions

"Brick Mansions" are what the projects in Detroit are called in this action packed film. When the mayor of the city decides to build expensive apartments on the site he plots to destroy the current buildings and all of the people inside. A bomb is stolen by some thugs and they intend to send it [...]

Fast and Furious 6

This movie is, as you would expect, fast paced. In fact, it opens in Spain with a race and rarely slows down after that. Brian (Paul Walker) has just become a father and the old team hopes to live the quiet life of retirement (following the race). But Hobbs (Dwayne Johnson) asks Dom to re-assemble [...]

Fast Five

Here is another installment in the "Fast and Furious" film series. This is the fifth one and it kind of feels like the series is running out of gas. In this one, ex-cop Brian O'Conner (Paul Walker) joins forces with girlfriend Mia (Jordana Brewster) and former con Dom Toretto (Vin Diesel) and they [...]

Fast and Furious

This fourth "Fast and Furious" film is filled with flaming fatal scenes including bullets flying, car crashes, fist fights, and murder. It is action-packed and the viewer doesn't get much of a chance to catch a breath. Dom Toretto (Diesel) is an ex-con and a fugitive. He seeks revenge when the [...]

Flags of Our Fathers

As in most war epics filmed in our day, this is a bloody and graphic portrayal of the story behind the men who were in the famous photo taken on Mount Suribachi atop the island of Iwo Jima. It is unfortunate that director Eastwood chose to show with such graphic detail the maiming and wounding of [...]

Dove Approved for All Ages

This is a heartwarming film. It's perfect for the whole family. It shows how dogs survive in the arctic in freezing temperatures. It also shows how a man is dedicated to his dogs and will do anything for them. This was a great film. The only thing that may be a little scary for the younger viewers [...]

Dove Approved for All Ages

The film ends with "Dedicated to the arctic explorers and their dogs that inspired this film." "Eight Below" is certainly a tribute to all of these brave men, women and dogs. It is one of the most uplifting and wonderful films of the year! "Sometimes you just have to take chances for the things you [...]

Running Scared

If the Synopsis above doesn't get your attention, then nothing I say here will make any difference either. When words such as "Freaks, Pimps, Hookers and Pedophiles" are used by a movie studio in their own description of a film, they are telling you "not a for the family" in no uncertain terms. [...]

Into the Blue – Filtered

December 26, 2005
This film was a waste of time. I was a bit skittish going into it in the first place, and I tried to place my preconceptions aside, but it turned out worse than I had expected. The movie's two main themes- the first being, "Look how attractive our actors are," and the second being, "Look how high [...]
