A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III
- free admission
Found a couple of Jason Statham movies for cheap at Wal-Mart the other night.
first, 'cause the Drafthouse showed the trailer a lot last spring, but didn't show the movie, so I couldn't get to it for free.
I thought it was alright, not a great action movie, but it got the job done. And there is a bit of a twist to the mano y mano fight for the end that was suprisingingly awesome.
Followed that up with The Mechanic
, which has the added bonus of includin' Ben Foster as Statham's protoge.
I've liked Ben Foster quite a bit, especially in 3:10 to Yuma
And here, in a story about a contract killer, he's pretty good, too. I thought it was interestin' how Statham's Arthur did great on his own, but each job goes to hell once he takes on his boss' son.
Nice supportin' turn for Donald Sutherland, too.
Got a plan to head in early to see Jack the Giant Slayer 3D
