We’re Bourne again and Batty with it this week at blockbuster.co.uk, as two of the year’s biggest actioners finally hit the home cinema scene…
In spectacular addition to his Impossible Missions Force and Avengers duties, Jeremy Renner kicks a thrilling amount of ass in franchise reboot The Bourne Legacy. From Duplicity writer/director Tony Gilroy comes the tale of a second double-crossed, triple-skilled agent who, together with sympathetic science type Rachel Weisz, hits the road on the run from just about everyone, figuring things out while chasing and shooting and jumping and stabbing and crashing and smashing every step of the way. Smart, slick and action-packed, we loved it to pieces and reckon you will to. Buy or rent it now on Blu-ray and DVD, in store and online from blockbuster.co.uk.
A tale not only of the Bat, but also the many splendid folk inhabiting Gotham, The Dark Knight Rises is elegantly photographed with sets worthy of vintage Bond, costumes to die for and gadgets that never cease to amaze. Though it sports surface gloss to spare, the secret to its success lies with what’s underneath the hood. Detailing the climactic confrontation between Batman (Christian Bale) and a host of villains in occupied Gotham City, it’s beautifully written with as much heart as intelligence. The performances too, are uniformly strong, as intimate as the movie itself is epic. You’ll love it.
