How many more examples of this do we need? Lara Croft, Silent Hill, Resident Evil, bad, bad, bad. The most entertaining part of this film is where the camera slips into a first person shooter in an unexpectedly inspired sequence. Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Karl Urban put in half-decent performances, but are given very little to work with in terms of drama. The most comfortable they ever look is when they are being attacked. Beware however, of a truly atrocious ending.Serenity (2005) - ****Having never watched the TV series on which it was based, I went into Serenity devoid of expectations and was consistently impressed by Joss Whedon's vampire western in space. Serenity manages to present an impressive range of action sequences, from space dogfights to sword duels. The cast is also good, in particular the charming Nathan Fillion, an unsettling Summer Glau and a chilling Chiwetel Ejiofor. The film can't help but swagger, managing to be amusing, exciting and in parts, even scary.
