Enemy at the Gates, Deep Blue Sea and Cube Reviews (US - DVD R1)

'Overall ‘Enemy at the Gates’ is certainly a film worth watching, though If you are after a truly memorable war film then you should checkout ‘Saving Private Ryan’ or ‘Platoon’ as ‘Enemy at the Gates’ certainly isn’t a classic. It’s nice to see a film convey the Russian side of the war for once, and for that Enemy at the Gates should be applauded, however the accents are off-putting and the love story and subsequent sex scene seem tacked on simply to bring in a younger audience.
Along with my review of Enemy at the Gates, Holly Ordway has reviewed Deep Blue Sea starring Samuel L Jackson, Saffron Burrows and Thomas Jane. Here is an extract from her review:
'The movie has some strong points. Despite a beginning that suggests a cheesy remake of Jaws, it turns out to have a reasonably original setting and premise, more along the lines of “Jaws meets Jurassic Park.” The cast is solid, with several well-known actors (Jackson and Skarsgård) as well as decent lesser-known actors. The cinematography is very well done, creating a definite sense of tension in some scenes, and pulling off some definite surprises early in the movie, and the story moves along at a good pace throughout the movie.'
Finally, Holly has also reviewed Cube starring Nicole de Boer, Nicky Guadagni and David Hewlett. Here's a sample:
'Overall, Cube is a very distinctive and original movie that’s well worth watching. It’s science fiction that explores the imaginative and philosophical possibilities of the genre, in the worthy company of films like 2001: A Space Odyssey. Cube will linger in your mind long after you’ve forgotten the latest Hollywood blockbuster.'
