MOVIE OF THE MONTH

Sicario

Sicario
(8/10) review by Steven Hampton

For Sicario (Spanish for 'hit-man') Emily Blunt tackles another action role, as federal agent Kate Macer, a rescue expert leading tactical assaults against hide-outs of known criminals in kidnapping crimes. Attempting to free hostages, a raid by FBI and SWAT finds only dozens of dead bodies hidden behind walls of an otherwise ordinary house.


VIDEOVISTA FOCUS

Hana-bi

Hana-bi
(8/10) review by J.C. Hartley

Hana-bi begins with two blue-overalled workmen confronting Kitano's Nishi, channelling Charles Bronson, in John Lennon 'granny' shades and a natty blue suit. Some sharp cutting reveals that the pair have messily eaten their lunch off the wing of Nishi's car.


CLASSIC TELEVISION

The Professionals mk III

The Professionals Mk. III
(7/10) review by Jeff Young

The strong suit of Brian Clemens' iconic updating of post-Avengers spy-fi telly for The Professionals was always its superbly filmed action scenes, shot on location, using capital-city landmarks but also many London back-roads.

The Ninja trilogy
(7/10) review by Ian Shutter

Featuring Sho Kosugi, The Ninja trilogy begins with Menahem Golan's Enter The Ninja (1981). This once popular VHS rental stars Franco Nero and Susan George, and the movie appears to be inspired partly by Enter The Dragon (1973), and TV series Kung Fu (1972-5).
