Even with its simplistic plot, Avatar is a stunning achievement in next-level cinematic bravado. Watch it on the biggest screen possible. Prepare to be blown away.

Red Cliff (2008)

As for the action, Red Cliff shows once again that when he’s working at the top of his game there is no better maestro of this sort of thing than John Woo.

The Hurt Locker (2008)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 26th, 2009 - Film Festivals Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

This is the real deal in action theatrics, Bigelow’s The Hurt Locker a pulse-pounding dynamo that puts all of Hollywood’s meager Summer 2009 offerings to immediate shame.

The Incredible Hulk (2008)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - June 13th, 2008 - Movie Reviews

This new Hulk might have its moments and the character might still have his angry superpowers, but that doesn’t make the film anything close to incredible.

Iron Man (2008)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - May 1st, 2008 - Movie Reviews

Not to say that this inaugural adventure of Iron Man soars very high, but it does get off the ground, and as far as first chapters in what is sure to be an ongoing story is concerned, at least for right now that’s going to have to be enough.

Resident Evil: Extinction (2007)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - September 24th, 2007 - Movie Reviews

Resident Evil: Extinction is an old-fashioned, soda-slurping, popcorn-munching, R-rated good time and, the last time I checked, the laws against that sort of thing happily registered between zero and none.

The Bourne Ultimatum (2007)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - August 3rd, 2007 - Four-Star Corner Movie Reviews

In what has become known as the “Summer of Sequels,” Universal Pictures, director Greengrass and star Damon have thankfully saved the very best for last, The Bourne Ultimatum a knock-out stunner I’ve been waiting since May to see.

300 (2006)

by Sara Michelle Fetters - March 9th, 2007 - Movie Reviews

300 is a bruising, battering, visually resplendent caterwaul of an action-adventure, and I imagine the fighting men and women it celebrates probably wouldn’t have had their story told any other way.
