‘One More Shot’ Review: A No-Holds-Barred DTV Spectacle

James Nunn’s One Shot had the biggest potential out of any direct-to-video actioner Scott Adkins led in so long: an action film staged like a one-take in which Adkins would topple as many baddies as possible as if the audience were playing a video game.

‘Madame Web’ Movie Review: A Hilariously Enjoyable Disaster

Sony’s Spider-Man Universe.

Review: ‘Napoleon’ is Waterloo on the silver screen

Boring, pointless, and uninspired, Ridley Scott’s Napoleon attempts to side-step the traditional biopic pratfalls, but forgets to do anything remotely interesting or captivating. Scott and screenwriter David Scarpa decide to forgo any background information on Napoleon, and focus on his rapid ascension from ambitious soldier to Emperor of Rome. Unfortunately, the forgot …
