    The 355

    ★★★½

    The 355 is a decent spy action thriller that is carried by its leading ladies. I don't know what people expect from a film like this, but I'm under the impression too many are setting themselves up for disappointment by expecting some Mission: Impossible level stuff.

    The script could've used another draft to smooth out a few clunky moments and polish the dialogue, other than that I don't have a serious issue with the movie. I don't mind that it…

Despite being littered with clunky exposition - and dialogue so wooden it would give Christopher…

    ★★★★½

    Initially my expectations for this movie weren't that high. I'm not much of a fan of the X-Men franchise and I do find the first two Wolverine solo outings particularly bad. What got me on board were the trailers. They left me with the impression that this actually could be an interesting film. Also I like Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart, and director James Mangold has made two films, that I really like a lot. Identity, and Cop Land where…
