Android Cop full movie review - Michael J White - Best Action Heroes? Yes He is One of Them
I saw the negative reviews, I chose not see the movie but then I saw the actors list and there it was Michael Jai White (Blood and Bone) then I thought give it a shot after se
eing him in (Spawn) once and then in the other films as well with good records, well, very good action sequences kind of reminds me of Steven Seagal, Dolph Lundgren, Jean-Claude Van Damme action flick fighting scenes from the 90s, those who love action movies not to be missed, this Golden Egg as it is said, is laid only once in a while so to say sadly. So if you haven't watched it yet - go and watch it strongly recommended. It's a story about futuristic post apocalyptic cops fighting crime against No One (the poor whom are placed in a self contained sector whom has no amenities whatsoever living a poorly unhygienic life with diseases being falsely subjected as the evil criminals by the powerful corporate governance of the future for corporate gains), our hero has some troubles of his own with his sidekick whom happens to be a A.I. Humanoid SuperCop and they are mislead by their own superiors to this wasteland after the earthquake and nuclear disaster to combat and destroy their so-called enemies without being known that they are actually the victims of the corporate governance - the story keeps on going from one place to another, its never boring filled with action adventure although some characters might seem to weak to be the villains but hey! are they really villains? Watch and find out - good overall entertainment it sits right between being cheesy with good story and it will give a hunch to us all what will come of us with some being greedy for power and money leaving the rest to rot - good philosophy behind this movie if you analyse it.
How come the good talented actors don't get good high budget films instead thrown off to the side? Sidelined Good action heroes, This happened in the 90s to Chistopher Lambert (Highlander), Lou Diamond Phillips (The Big Hit) till now Matthew McConaughey (Reign of Fire), Scott Adkins (Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning), Adrien Brody (Predators), Vin Diesel (Riddick), Dwayne Johnson (Faster) and the others like Karl Urban (Dredd),Taylor Kitsch (Battleship), Aaron Eckhart (Battle Los Angeles) - these actors have full potential to become good action stars but nevertheless depends also on good plot.
Some actors like Chris Evans (suitable only for franchised superhero plots only not fight sequence action star), Jeremy Renner (vee=ry premature fight sequence action star not realistic), Christian Bale (good for fight sequence action movies like (Equilibrium) not for some franchise superhero plots).
Best action Stars of All time (Clint EastWood, Arnie, Stallone, Kurt Rusell, Bruce Lee, Charles Bronson, John Wayne ..the list goes on from the past with good records - they had this outright energy and charisma of Heroes as well as acting skills that can stand out one from the other not clone like what you see nowadays) so the guys like Chris Evans,Jeremy Renner, Christian Bale, Mark Wahlberg, Matt Damon, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Channing Tatum, Josh Hartnett, Hayden Christensen, Ryan Reynolds (worst action star looks like a cutie pie to me) they all just look plain, the faces look straight with highly educated looks from a very high profile background not like a streetwise rookie with some punch furthermore they tend to show nothing extra with a clone like feeling, I can't see any differentiating talent with all of them other than that of few weeks of training for the action sequences with a Kung Foo Fight sequence coordinators for their respective films, from the above list Matt Damon is taking up some serious efforts and to me he's becoming more matured, the others are pretty much clones.
Current Best Action Heroes, My Pick - Jason Statham, Jet Li, Michael Jai White, Dwayne Johnson and Scott Adkins.
