Age Of Kill movie full length review - Through the barricades.....
So after leaving Spandau Ballet, Martin Kemp had such an illustrious career in the military, he becomes a secret sniper for the government, but after a job goes awry in Spain, his operation is cancelled, and his group are all sent on their way.
But not long after, Martin has a call from someone who needs some cough sweets, letting him know that his daughter has been kidnapped, and he must kill six people in twelve hours, or else.
But something else is going on, involving Nick Moran, which could lead to a monumental terrorist attack on London.
If I didn't have such low expectations for this movie, I don't think I would have enjoyed it half as much as I did, but I enjoyed it for all the wrong reasons. My faith in the British film industry has been on the wane just lately, especially after seeing the truly abysmal Assassin (especially when the director adds you as a friend on Facebook to give you a dressing down because of your review), and once respected actors being in rubbish for a quick buck.
But if you can take away the fact that some of the acting is insufferable, it's ridiculously funny to see Kemp run around the streets of London in broad daylight, getting away with literal murder.
The plot is totally incoherent, and anyone, and I mean anyone, would recognise the Jigsaw type voice on the end of every sinister phone call......and it's supposed to be a big twist at the end?
Actors, and TV presenters who were quite well known in the nineties show up to add some gravitas to the proceedings, but when these are former MTV presenter Donna Air, and the bad guy form Passenger 57, it's even more bonkers than you first thought.
So all in all, it's complete rubbish, but it's watchable for all the astonishingly wooden acting, Kemp running around as the nicest angry guy around, and of course, the promise of a sequel, which I hope will happen, because I need to know where the makers will go with the concept.
It's a cliché for sure, but file this under 'so bad it's unintentionally funny'
