"No" Movie Review

Date: 
Wednesday, January 18, 2012 - 1:00am - Monday, April 1, 2013 - 11:00pm

By Miv Evans

This drama documents the events surrounding the downfall of President Pinochet, dictator of Chile from 1973 to 1988. As a drama, it fails, but the events the filmmakers depict are so powerful that the images create a story all of their own. Truths are encompassed by themes of stolen civil liberties and, abomination by abomination, this tragic era of Chile’s history is faithfully drawn.

By Miv Evans

Despite a big budget, a star cast, an A-list director and an established writer, this thriller is more like a so-so B movie than a vehicle to launch Jason Statham’s solo career. An action-centric trailer might initially pull audiences in but, with nothing more to offer than a gun-crazed killer, interest will wane, and this crime flick will be on its way to the DVD graveyard.
