Street Kings

I was intrigued by the level of violence surrounding the character and the dramatic consequences of that,” explains Keanu Reeves. “He can be viewed as either someone who kills in the name of the law or someone who delivers justice. Dramatically, there’s a high price to pay and I was interested in how it would all play out.”

Cast: Keanu Reeves, Forest Whitaker, Hugh Laurie, Chris Evans, Cedric the Entertainer, Jay Mohr, Terry Crews, Naomie Harris

Taken

Memorable Dialogue

Brian Mills: I don’t know you who you are. I don’t know what you want. If you’re looking for a ransom, I can tell you, I don’t have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills acquired over a very long career in the shadows, skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now, that will be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don’t, I will look for you, I will find you. And I will kill you.

Cast: Liam Neeson, Maggie Grace, Leland Orse, John Gries

Wanted

Wanted may be the most absolutely stone bonkers, crazy-good movie of the century. Or it may be a gargantuan piece of trash. Chances are it’s a combination of the two. But man, does it rock. … The level of invention and energy in this movie makes your typical Hollywood blockbuster action flick look like little girls in pink dresses petting fuzzy bunnies in slow motion. …”Wanted” takes a leap of faith — actually, it takes about 10 leaps — and it certainly isn’t for everyone. It’s bloody, far-fetched, loud, leering and half-mad. But if you’re into hardcore action, it doesn’t get any better than this, reports Tom Long,  The Detroit News

Cast: Angelina Jolie, James McAvoy, Morgan Freeman
