Ok, so here are 3 thrillers which will surely have you at the edge of your seat when you watch them!
London has fallen
This movie got 4 out of 5 stars and I couldn’t agree more. It was definitely very action packed (and reminds me a lot of Vantage Point.) It’s about a gathering of all the world’s leaders in London to pay respects to the Prime Minister who had just passed away. It features some big names (I won’t tell you if they survive or not, you’ll have to see it for yourself) so you know it was bound to be a decent movie to begin with. Your heart might sink a little when your country’s leader is killed, but that’s just part of the action! of course it centers around the United States President and his loyal bodyguard who risks his own life to save his. On a side note, what a job, hey? Gerard Butler is known for these types of movies (remember 300?) and he doesn’t disappoint as the hero.
I’m surprised that this movie only got 4 out of 5 stars. I definitely think it deserves a solid 5. Let’s start with Mr. Leonardo DiCaprio being absolutely amazing – a role which (finally) landed him his first Oscar for Best Actor. He is a brilliant actor and with the rest of the world, surprised at how the Academy has chosen to ignore this for so many years. But anyways, back to the movie. It follows the story of Leo who was attacked by a bear in the woods and was left for dead. If you haven’t seen the movie, the bear scene is the most famous out of the entire film, and if you had to watch scene only, this would be it. Of course it wasn’t a real bear (otherwise Leo would actually die) but he made us believe it was! This was shot in my home province of British Columbia, Canada and some in Alberta – the neighboring province. While I typically don’t care much for period movies, throw in some good acting and convincing make believe and I’m there. If you have seen this movie, you know that you should have this in your BluRay collection.
Ok, so apparently this isn’t a horror flick as I originally thought it would be, but I guess it had more thrills than horror so it makes sense that it falls in the ‘Thriller’ category. It’s rated 3 out of 5 stars and I think that’s pretty fair. So the story is a mother sends her two kids to visit their grandparents – both of whom have never met each other. All seems to be good and dandy until Grandma shows some weird and erratic behavior. Although it’s hard to give extra input on this movie without giving away the twist and ending, I’ll try to dance around it. It does vaguely resemble a horror flick in its jumpy and ‘what were they thinking’ moments and that moment you realize they’re in trouble is priceless.
