2018 / 95m - USA
Crime, Thriller
Terminal poster

UK crime meets US noir. Terminal is a strange little beast, sporting a rather cartoonist setup mixed with very style-conscious direction. It's a film that forgoes a serious plot and character building in favor of grim glee and pure cinematic fun. Director Stein effort is laudable, but his film did end up feeling a little empty, lacking that bit of excess madcap that makes a film like this truly stand out.

Read all

Vince and Alf are two small-time crooks who love the mystery of the crime world. When they're given the number of a locker in a near-abandoned train station, it feels like a dream come through. There they meet Annie, a vampy waitress who runs the bar in the station. Alf is immediately smitten by the girl, but she hides a darker truth that might be their undoing.

The trashy, industrial and neon-drenched sets are no doubt the highlight of the film. The characters are a bit flakier. Fletchers's Vince is pretty great, Pegg is also on point, Robbie (too close to Harley Quinn) and Myers (a miscast) feel a little lost. The film also lacks a few more colorful characters who could've added some extra spark. As for the dialogue, there are early Ritchie vibes there, which is sure to divide audiences. All in all, there's a lot to love, Terminal just lacks a few finishing touches.

Inheritance poster

A decent mystery/thriller. It just a shame the first hour is the most effective, while the finale is a bit of a letdown. Some twists and turns, but nothing too unexpected and the ending lacks punch. The acting is solid, so is the direction, but apart from Pegg's part there's nothing very memorable about this film.
