Jim Sherlock's DVD recommendations
THE HOUR: Season Two (2012/M): Exceptionally well crafted British Cold War espionage drama set behind-the-scenes of a top rating 1956 investigative television news program involving the criminal underworld, political blackmail, cover-ups, murder and corruption. Superb performances from Ben Whishaw (Skyfall), Dominic West (The Wire), Peter Capaldi (Local Hero, The Thick of It and In The Loop), along with Romola Garai and Anna Chancellor, these are wonderful characters you care about, and they ensure a thrilling and captivating six part entertainment experience. And just one more thing, there's a nice irony throughout, and never more delightfully fitting than now, only to say that it's your call, Miss Moneypenny. **** Stars.
LOCKOUT (2012/MA15+): Giggles and guns drive Guy Pearce and Maggie Grace in this science fiction romp of an ex-CIA operative wrongly convicted of conspiracy who is offered his freedom if he can rescue the daughter of the President of The United States from a space prison taken over by inmates. This is "Escape From New York" meets "Die Hard" from the mind of co-producer Lec Besson, who must have thought this up in a taxi from the airport to his office. That said, the action and humour fall together close enough (Guy Pearce seems to be having great fun doing his "Snake" Plissken imitation from "Escape from New York") and even though it suffers from obvious budget restraints, it ultimately delivers the expected thrills and an amusing enough ride. **1/2 Stars.
CLASSIC DVD PICK OF THE WEEK:
UNDER FIRE (1983/M): A terrific, almost forgotten, nail-biter with Nick Nolte, Gene Hackman and Joanna Cassidy right at the of their game in this spellbinding political thriller of three journalists caught up in the 1979 Nicaraguan revolutionary conflict. Tour-de-force performances all round, meticulously intelligent screenplay, outstanding cinematography and tight direction deliver a big exciting, provocative, tension filled thrill ride that grabs you round the throat and never lets go. A special mention must also go to composer Jerry Goldsmith for his haunting [standout] Oscar nominated music score. Jean-Louis Trintignant and Ed Harris also star. A powerful piece of filmmaking entertainment that excels on every level: ****1/2 Stars.
