There are no particularly high-profile premieres this weekend, however, we picked up a few worthwhile new products. And they warned of overt slag.
AbigailThe picture unfolds in the Steampunk universe, where the government of a closed city, under the guise of fighting an epidemic, catches people who have the gift for magic. Naturally, because they themselves possess it. A girl named Abigail is trying to uncover the plot and save her missing father for many years. The director Alexander Boguslavsky and the producers from the Kinodants company, the same one that got into a showdown with BadComedian, obviously tried to put it with their fantasy for an imported product. And after all they tried, they tried very hard. Even too much. The plot is simple, like 3 kopecks, and the scenery resembles such a good children's performance, but not a movie. And the fact that the plot was brazenly stolen from Perumov, rewriting it "Molly Blackwater", does not add respect.
Angel Has FallenLondon has already fallen, Olympus too. Now the angel is “falling”. More precisely, the guardian angel of the president, secret service agent Mike Banning. Of course, the faithful servant is unfairly accused of attempting to assassinate the country's leader, but this can be proved only by remaining at large and alive, of course. The race begins.
The charismatic Gerard Butler will make any action movie watchable, so if you are a fan of the actor, the film will definitely come to you. And if you look more closely at the brainchild of Rick Roman Vaughn, it turns out that a rotten Russian trace skips in the film (this always causes an ambiguous reaction of the domestic audience), and a clear desire to smooth out sharp corners to the glory of political correctness does not allow achieving the desired passions.
Trap (Crawl)A powerful hurricane falls on Florida; Haley, ignoring the authorities' urgent recommendations for evacuation, hurries to her father’s house, because he suspiciously does not get in touch. She finds him seriously wounded in the basement and is trapped with him. Along with the rising water level, alligators got into the house. However, the basement is gradually flooding. So either death by suffocation, or the difficult fate of dinner ... Is it possible to get out of the trap?
The dynamic exciting trailer and authority of the famous horror specialist Alexander Azh (“The hills have eyes”, “Bloody harvest”, “Mirrors”) immediately inspire confidence and anticipation of a first-class spectacle. In fact, the film really does not let go for almost an hour and a half. But if you are a picky connoisseur of survive thrillers, then you might think that something more was expected from this director.
Zombi ChildThe action of the tape Bertrand Bonello ("Pornographer", "House of tolerance", "Saint Laurent. Style is me") takes place in two time layers: back in 1962 in Haiti and in modern Paris. Arriving from a distant island with the sorceress-aunt Melissa trying to become her in a pathos college founded by Napoleon Bonaparte himself, tells the story of his grandfather Narcissus Clervius, who was turned into a zombie and kept in slavery for 2 years. Having penetrated the story, her friend asks for help with the help of voodoo to return the boyfriend's love.
This tape is interesting if only because it returns to the Haitian origins of the concept of “zombie”, and does not exploit the already pop-edly pop-cultural interpretation. At first, the parallel storylines are a little confusing, but the one is clear that everything in this film is clearly displayed, it becomes only in the last 20 minutes of viewing. Non-trivial, original and deep movie about the liberation. In the broad sense of the word.
UglyDolls. Dolls with character (UglyDoll)Cartoon Kelly Esbury tells the story of the ugly and charming inhabitants of Aglville, hidden from the prying eyes of the town. What is happening here, in fact, is not important at all, because the purpose of this film is to ensure successful sales of the new series of toys. So be careful if you have children who are greedy for all this garbage.
Being Harvey Weinstein (Untouchable)A competent ostrootsotsialnaya documentary is a really cool reason to go to the cinema. Ursula McFarlane took up one of the high-profile topics of recent years, namely, the monstrous exposure of one of the main Hollywood bigwigs, producer Harvey Weinstein. He was opposed by dozens of women whom he sought and incited to intimacy, promising to make a star. So who is he: a monster, a rapist, a sexologist, avid for everything that floats into his hands, or is he still an excellent specialist in his field, who has presented the world with many great films? True, as always, somewhere in between.
