Age Of Kill online movie review - Poor action and it lacked emotion! 2/10
Review: My expectations for this movie wasn't that high because the critics gave it a bad write up and after watching it, I must admit, it is pretty poor.
The acting isn't that great and the storyline was awful. Its about a special ops agent who is blackmailed to take out various people because the baddie is holding his daughter. Another lady is also performing various acts because her uncle is being held by the baddie so they go around killing random people to save there loved ones. I was quite impressed with Martin Kemp in the Krays but his acting in this film was pretty poor. There is some intensity throughout the movie because he has a time scale to take out his victims but the action is terrible and I wasn't that interested in any of the characters. There are a couple of twists, which were also pretty poor, but Martin Kemp does have the potential to become a good actor. He just needs to pick a decent film. Anyway, the concept wouldn't have been that bad if it was made in America but from a UK point of view, the script needed a lot of work and there wasn't any depth to any of the characters. In all, it's just another movie from the UK which is a big disappointment.
Round-Up: At 53 years old, Martin Kemps claim to fame has to be his role in the Krays and Eastenders. He also had a promising career as a guitarist in Spandau Ballet so his career has had its ups and downs. After suffering with a major illness, his career was put on hold and he hasn't been able to come back into the spotlight. That's not to say that he is a bad actor because I do like his performance in the Krays but after making some bad choices, I really can't see him hitting the fame that he hit earlier on in his career. The film was made by a Welsh, 34 year old director, Neil Jones, who has only made 9 small films in his career. He had quite a good cast to work with on this project but he really didn't get the best out of the actors. For such an intense storyline, I wasn't really that convinced by the actors, from an emotional point of view, which can only been blamed on the director. On the plus side, it is quite short and it's non-stop from the beginning to end so it doesn't drag.
I recommend this movie to people who are into their intense action/thrillers about a special ops agent who is blackmailed to take-out various people. 2/10
