Film Review of 2015 – Action

In what is being overlooked for upcoming awards, Denis Villeneuve’s Sicario is an astounding piece of film making that had me holding my breath and on the edge of my seat throughout. Kingsman was the spy thriller to beat with all the other spy films languishing in the just passable section. What is most shocking about this is Mad Max: Fury Road being so low down. While it is a very enjoyable movie I did find it a little bit too over the top to totally enjoy it. Hitman: Agent 47 surprised me as the most improved film in a series. American Ultra is probably the most underrated and ignored gem in this group.
