Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Life isn't perfect. That point is made in this explosive, action-oriented film. Fortunately for the viewer, the point is made with a lot of laughs. And this movie is a feast for the eyes, featuring dramatic effects, explosions, chases through space, shoot-'em-ups with laser blasts, and enough space [...]

Creed

November 25, 2015
"Creed" is a well-made film, inspiring and dramatic. It features a believable and interesting story. The chemistry between Michael B. Jordan, as Adonis Creed, and Sylvester Stallone, as Rocky, is excellent. Even if Stallone is playing the iconic boxer for the seventh time, he does a subtle, [...]

The Expendables 3

August 15, 2014
"The Expendables 3" is an action-packed film from beginning to the end and filled with many well-known actors. This reviewer has not seen the previous Expendables films so cannot compare, but this movie has something for everyone including drama, comedy, action, adventure and suspense. The only [...]

Grudge Match

December 25, 2013
"Grudge Match" is a slow moving movie that tries too hard to create a story that the audience will sympathize with. Unfortunately, the filmmakers do this with almost every character in the film. Due to the long back stories the main plot of two over-the-hill boxers facing off against each other [...]

Escape Plan

October 18, 2013
Stallone and Schwarzenegger make an interesting duo in this film. Schwarzenegger gets most of the funny lines with Stallone playing it straight for the most part. Stallone plays Ray Breslin, an expert on escaping from high security prisons. He winds up placed in one in which his outside connections [...]

Bullet to the Head

February 1, 2013
This movie is based on a graphic novel. Maybe that's why the violence is "graphic". Several characters are shot in...well, the head, just as the title implies. There is a lot of violence in this movie as one would suspect. There are shootings, fights, shootings, explosions, shootings, corpses seen [...]

The Expendables 2

August 17, 2012
"The Expendables 2" features a lot of stars: Stallone, Schwarzenegger, Norris, Statham, Lundgren, and more. And it features some lines which viewers of their movies will recognize. For example, in one scene Schwarzenegger shows up just in time to help his friends who are in a jam and, crashing [...]

The Expendables

August 13, 2010
The story isn't bad. A woman is dedicated to her people and she is involved in an assassination attempt against someone she knows very well. We won't plot spoil by saying who it is, but it turns out to be a bit surprising. She is loyal to her country and decides to stay after a failed attempt to [...]

Rambo

January 25, 2008
I seldom have had such mixed feelings while watching a film. On the one hand, this story of Christian missionaries going into war-plagued Burma, where genocide is a harsh reality, and their attempt to bring comfort and medical help, is a noble part of the plot. Rambo is reluctant to rent out his [...]

Rocky Balboa

December 20, 2006
The story was true to the spirit of the original "Rocky." I had a very favorable overall impression of the sixth installment of this "triumph over adversity" series; the best of the five sequels. I was especially touched by Rocky's humble spirit, balanced with his great strength of character. He [...]
