Movies: Dog Soldiers (15), Serenity (15), Pixels (12A) & Fantastic 4 (12A)

Dog Soldiers (15) – what’s it about? A group of soldiers take part in an exercise in Scotland…but they weren’t prepared for werewolves!

This is a good lot of bloody action, a great British movie and only we Brits can show “fuck off” to a werewolf as it’s trying to kill you lol. It’s got a little plot, action, gore and some little twists. It’s a classic werewolf film and worth seeing if you love the hairy beasts.

Serenity (15) – what’s it about? Continuation from the Firefly TV series, the crew must survive an assassin and uncover the truth…

Full on action, story and character driven plot, as well as sci-fi battles and space travel to boot, so this has everything you possibly need in a movie. If you haven’t seen Firefly then don’t worry at all, you can still watch this awesome movie, as it’s written in a way you don’t need to know previous histories. It’s definitely worth seeing!

Pixels (12A) – what’s it about? In 1982 a recording of video games was sent into space, at present day an alien race sends down video game characters to destroy the world…

Basically this movie cashes in on nostalgia but that said if you like Adam Sandler then you’ll like this as it’s his usual type of humour. It’s got some action, a few heh moments (nothing extremely funny) and a little bit of story, its better than average but not amazing.

Fantastic 4 (12A) – what’s it about? The origin story of the Fantastic 4 and Doctor Doom, can they figure out how to use their powers to protect earth from the evil Doom?

This movie…umm…maybe I should explain first that the Fantastic 4 aren’t my favourite of the superhero bunch, they have never been as good as others imo, so keep that in mind. This movie is alright, but nothing at all special. It’s definitely the weaker of all the Marvel movies that have come out but it is an origin story and those are always a little lacking. The story was very basic but I was disappointment by the lack of information you find out about the characters and the action was a little disappointing too. It’s ok to pass the time but don’t expect awesomeness and you’ll enjoy it!

Rating: J J O (this is being under generous but I think three might be too much)
