Containment (2015)

containmentDirector: Neil McEnery-West

Writer: David Lemon (Screenplay) Neil McEnery-West, Antony Woodruffe (Story)

Starring: Louise Brealey, Sheila Reid, Lee Ross, Pippa Nixon, Andrew Leung, Jill Buchanan, Hannah Chalmers, William Postlethwaite, Gabriel Senior

 

Plot: No water. No power. No explanation. No escape.

 

There may be spoilers the rest of the review

 

Verdict: Atmospheric Paranoid Thriller

 

Story: Containment starts as Mark (Ross) wakes up late only to find his apartment sealed shut with no power, water or electricity. When fellow residents Sergei (Leung), Sally (Brealey) Nicu (Senior) Enid (Reid) and Aiden (Postlethwaite) break through the wall we get thrown into the idea of this happening overnight and speculation ensues.

The group witness the government pulling people out of the flats with force as they have to start planning for an escape from their fate. The group capture one of the hazmat people Hazel (Nixon) as they look for answers it turns out it isn’t only the other hazmat suits they have to worry about.

Containment brings us a story that could happen to anyone with an overnight containment. The feel of the whole story is of unanswered questions as we only learn a tiny part to what is actually happening. The story is filled with paranoia which works for the character’s actions and if you have seen Right At Your Door you can see similarities between the too. This will make you question just how safe you are when you sleep in the government did something like this to you.

 

Actor Review

 

 

Lee Ross: Mark is our leading man who becomes the reluctant hero of the piece when he finds himself sealed inside his own apartment block, when he teams up with the rest of his floor to try and figure out why. He is calm through the situations even when the aggressive Sergei gets in his face. Lee is good in this leading role coming off well in the reluctant hero role.

Pippa Nixon: Hazel is one of the hazmat workers that gets capture, she gives the answers to the group in a hope that she won’t be killed. Pippa is solid in this role hold enough mystery about herself and what is going on.

Andrew Leung: Sergei is one of the residents on a floor, he has been breaking through walls to get out, he comes off very aggressive and is trying to protect his little brother Nicu. He is the loose cannon of the group making rash decisions that put the group in more danger. Andrew is good in this role playing out the typical shady resident in a block of flats.

Sheila Reid: Enid is the old resident and neighbour to Mark, she has been in the flats for over 30 years with no problems, she does add comedy to the dangerous situation but also care to the youngest member of the group. Sheila gets the better lines with her character’s dry wit which add the comedy needed in the serious situation.

Support Cast: Containment has a small supporting cast that includes all the fellow prisoners in their own home along with the hazmat people and the other residents in nearby buildings. They all help make the tension rise for our group of survivors.

Director Review: Neil McEnery-WestNeil gives us a thriller that keeps the answers away from us as the tension rises.

 

Horror: Containment puts us into a horror scenario as our residents have no escape from an impending terror moment.

Sci-Fi: Containment puts us into a sci-fi world of an unknown containment for our characters.

Thriller: Containment doesn’t give us any answers to what is going on which only pulls us in more.

Settings: Containment keeps the entire film inside the block of flats which shows us just how trapped the characters are against the terror coming for them.
Special Effects
: Containment has good effects when needed but it is more about making you think about what is happening.

Suggestion: Containment is one to try for all the horror fans out there. (Try It)

 

Best Part: Settings inside of a block of flats.

Worst Part: You might want a few more answers.

 

Believability: No

Chances of Tears: No

Chances of Sequel: No

Post Credits Scene: No

Similar Too: Right At Your Door

 

Oscar Chances: No

Runtime: 1 Hour 17 Minutes

 

Overall: Thriller that fills you with paranoia that keeps you guessing without giving you answers.

Starring: Sean Connery, Nicolas Cage, Ed Harris, John Spencer, David Morse, William Forsythe, Michael Biehn, Vanessa Marcil, John C. McGinley, Tony Todd

 

Plot: A mild-mannered chemist and an ex-con must lead the counterstrike when a rogue group of military men, led by a renegade general, threaten a nerve gas attack from Alcatraz against San Francisco.

 

There may be spoilers the rest of the review

 

Verdict: One of the Best

 

Story: The Rock starts as General Francis Hummel (Harris) and his men including Major Baxter (Morse) take a military base by storm to steal a deadly bio-weapon. We also get to see the effects of the weapon when one of the men gets trapped in the room with it. We also get meet Stanley Goodspeed (Cage) who works as a chemical weapons disarmer.

General Hummel takes Alcatraz prison as his new base of operations where he has his weapons ready for launch unless his demands are met, he wants $100 Million that he can pay to fallen soldier’s family’s the money they deserve. Hummel has kept everything non-violent and keeps everything professional with his negotiations. We see how the FBI Director Womack (Spencer) and the rest of the authority figures in America give us the basic idea of what will be the consequences if the gas goes off and why plan A, B or C can’t work.

This has established the idea that we need our chemical expert Stanley and ex-inmate John Patrick Mason (Connery) who has been locked away with the key thrown away. The plan is to learn his route how he escaped from Alcatraz and use it to enter and get the upper hand on the men controlling the prison.

The Rock gives us an action movie that keeps all of the action in and from America with the terrorist side of the story being American soldiers. The odd couple chemistry between Goodspeed and Mason shows that people will go to lengths stop the men. I liked how Hummel’s also comes off very determined but not willing to take people’s lives into his hands wanting a peaceful ending to everything. we do get the basic action sides of the story but that doesn’t mean this is a bad movie. This is a fully enjoyable action film with a story that makes you question how you feel about Hummel’s.

 

Actor Review

 

Sean Connery: John Patrick Mason is the former inmate of Alcatraz who has been locked up many prisons which he has a habit of escaping from. John gets bought in on this mission because he knows how to get into Alcatraz but he isn’t playing by all the rules. The only man he respects out of the FBI unit is Goodspeed as the two have to become the heroes. Sean gives us one of the best performances of his career in this role showing he still had the action side of his older age.mason

Nicolas Cage: Stanley Goodspeed is the chemical expert that is considered the best in his field, as an FBI agent he gets bought into the situation to secure the bio-weapons that are threatening San Francisco. He has to work with Mason putting aside their differences to save the day. Nicolas is brilliant in this showing how he would become an action star for years to come.goodspeed

Ed Harris: General Francis Hummel is the man who is leading the operation take Alcatraz as his base to get the money owed to the men who died under his watch in black ops mission. He keeps everything non-lethal and wants to use the right paths even if some of the men are more trigger happy. Hummel makes for one of the most interesting villains in action film history because his cause is a worthy, he wants to negotiate in a forceful way without actually having causalities. We never really hate this villain because of this and he even does the right thing during the times when he men have gone out of line. Ed gives a brilliant performance in one of the best villains in action film history.hummels

David Morse: Major Tom Baxter is Hummel’s second in command he isn’t afraid to do jobs that Hummel’s doesn’t want to do and as the story unfold we learn how far he is willing to go. David is great in this supporting role.

Support Cast: The Rock has a massive supporting cast all in either military roles or authority roles.

Director Review: Michael BayMichael gives us one of the greatest action movies ever made.

 

Action: The Rock has great action throughout being is the hand to hand combat or explosions or gun fights.

Adventure: The Rock puts Goodspeed and Mason on an adventure to save the city.

Thriller: The Rock keeps us on our toes from start to finish.

Settings: The Rock uses Alcatraz for the setting which adds a unique take to the action side of the story.
Special Effects
: The Rock uses great effects for the action throughout without being too over the top.

Suggestion: The Rock is one for all the action fans to watch over and over because it is one of the best. (Watch)

 

Best Part: Car Chase.

Worst Part: Not much.

Action Scene Of The Film: Car Chase

Favourite Quote: Mason ‘Your “best”! Losers always whine about their best. Winners go home and fuck the prom queen.’

Fantasy Film Casting – Benny & Joon

Let’s Recast a Film

You know how us film fans always want to recast a film, well today we play the role of producer and this script has turned up on our desk. The next job is to cast the film as if it the year is 2016, the rules are as simple you can’t use anyone who is in the original film however good or bad you think the film is. So without further ado let’s cast this movie.

Film: Benny & Joonbeen and joon

Original Cast: Johnny Depp, Mary Stuart Masterson, Aidan Quinn, Julianne Moore

New Cast: Keira Knightley, Tobey Maguire, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Katherine Waterston

Why I have picked this star:

Mary Stuart Masterson – Keira Knightley – Joon joon Joon in the mentally ill sister of Benny who has to stick a very strict routine just to get through each day. She comes off shy and nervous which is important to why her relationship with Sam works. I have picked Keira for this role because I feel she is making herself out to be a perfect choice for touching comedies be it with Begin Again and Seeking a Friend for the End of the World. This role isn’t about all the comedy but being the natural reaction to the comedy and also having to deal with the serious side of the story with her mental health issue which I also believe that Keira would handle with ease.

Aidan Quinn – Tobey Maguire – Benny benn Benny is the only relative that Joon has and he cares for her at home while running his own business. Having to care for Joon has put his own personal life on hold but when he meets Sam his own life is going to change just as much as Joon’s. Tobey is my choice for this role because he is a good serious actor and in this role he does have the serious subject matter, he also needs to be older with the big brother feeling about the character.

Johnny Depp – Joseph Gordon-Levitt – Sam sam Sam is the estranged young man with a fascination with Buster Keaton so much so he uses his comedy to communicate with people in his own little way. He comes into the lives of Benny & Joon to change them both for the better. I have picked Joseph for this role because I feel that he can pull any comedy he wants so whether it is embracing the Buster Keaton or using another iconic comedian, we can also see him handle the serious side of the story.

Julianne Moore – Katherine Waterston – Ruthie ruthie Ruthie is the love interest that Benny starts seeing once Sam starts making Joon feel much more relaxed.  While this is just a supporting role we do have some very important scenes and I do think having an actress that is just starting to make her name in the main stage of Hollywood needs to be used in this role and Katherine shone in Steve Jobs last year and this could be the chance to continue to show her talent.

How will this change the film: I would like to keep nearly everything the same in this film really it is such a charming gem of the romantic comedy drama that hits everything perfectly when it comes to telling this story. if I was to change anything it would be to potentially change the iconic actor Sam would be obsessed with.

Will you be going to see this new version of the film?
Who would you rather see in this film?
