August 2010 Movies

I saw three films in August. I enjoyed all of them! They were all action films and not erudite, but for a hot summer month, a good way to spend a couple of hours.

  • 24) The A-Team - Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper, Sharlto Copley, Quinton "Rampage" Jackson (August 21, 2010)
    It's TV's The A-Team rebooted for a new generation and it's a lot of fun. There isn't a lot of work for your brain, but it is rather fun to see the new cast take on the old characters. All in all, they do a pretty good job. There's a lot of hokum, lots of explosions but unlike the TV show, people die in this one. Fun for fans, and a few laughs from the new characters. Worth checking out if you like this sort of thing! Stay in your seats for a couple of scenes at the very end, especially if you were a fan of the original show.

  • 23) Predators - See July (August 13, 2010)
  • 22) Salt - Angelina Jolie, Liev Schreiber, Chiwetel Ejiofor (August 1, 2010)
    Evelyn Salt is a married CIA agent who is asked to interview a possible Russian agent on the day of her anniversary. When he fingers her as a spy, he sets in motion a chain of events that may bring about a nuclear war.
    Angelina Jolie is one of the few actresses today who could be believeable in this part. She runs, jumps from truck to truck, climbs walls, shoots and hits and we buy it because she looks like maybe she could do this in real life. It's a great, summer action movie. It is not exactly a feel good time at the movies, but it's better than it had to be.
    I would say that fans of Angelina will love it, and action fans will like it too.
