Going to the Movies? Hear What Our Critic Thinks About this Weekend’s Openings (REVIEW)
There are three movies opening this weekend and our critic, Joanna Langfield, is not thrilled with any of them.
Opening today is the new action movie, Escape Plan, starring Arnold Schwartzenegger and Sylvester Stallone. The movie follows Ray, played by Stallone, the world’s foremost authority on structural security, who agrees to take on one last job: breaking out of an ultra secret, high tech facility called The Tomb. But when he is wrongly imprisoned, Ray must turn to fellow inmate Emil, played by Schwartzenegger, to help him escape from the most high security prison ever built. Escape Plan is rated R and has a running time of 1 hour and 56 minutes.
Also opening today is the new thriller, The Fifth state, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Laura Linney. The film follows the early days of WikiLeaks, culminating in the release of controversial and history-changing information leaked online. The Fifth Estate is rated R and has a running time of 2 hours and 8 minutes
And you can also see the re-imagining of the hit horror movie, Carrie, starring Chloe Grace Moretz and Julianne Moore. The film follows outcast teenager Carrie, played by Moretz, who unleashes telekinetic terror on the small town where she lives after her fellow high schoolers push her too far at her senior prom. Carrie is rated R and has a running time of 1 hour and 39 minutes.
Here’s the review.
