Movies: Big Game (12A), Spooks: The Greater Good (15) & The Time Machine (DVD – PG)

Big Game (12A) – what’s it about? Air Force one is under attack from terrorists and the President is evacuated. He has to survive in the wilderness against the terrorists until he is rescued.

Ok do not whatever you do expect this as a serious film what-so-ever, it is a spoof! If you take it as that, that it’s just going to be a stupid cheesy kids movie which has more corn that a corn-on-the-cob then it’s pretty good and is kinda amusing. If you go in expecting a big action movie then you’ll be sorely disappointed…

Spooks: The Greater Good (15) – what’s it about? A spin off movie from the TV show, the MI5 gang return to capture a terrorist and stop an attack.

I have to admit I haven’t really watched the TV series religiously, I’ve seen the odd episodes but that’s all. You can quite happily watch and understand this if you haven’t seen the series (if you have it’ll give more depth to it). It’s kinda an average movie though; I don’t think it’s really strong enough to be a cinema class movie – more just an extended episode. If you love the series you’ll probably love it though!

The Time Machine (DVD – PG) – what’s it about? An inventor’s fiancée is killed and he sets out to change the past using a time machine he’s built and ends up looking for answers.

This was one of those movies that I now wish I saw when it first came out as the graphics are now a little dated. It has a good story/plot and also enough action to balance it out, even though it sounds as if it might be a wet lettuce movie as it’s about romance and boring stuff like that…I was very surprised. It’s worth a look if you don’t mind the graphics being a little meh as it’s a bloody good movie!
