It might sound like a strange criticism to levy against a film where Santa Claus engages in a bloody war with machine gun toting mercenaries, but director Tommy Wirkola’s Violent Night isn’t dumb enough to be all that fun.
Bullets fly in the drama, The Bang Bang Club, which arrives on DVD and Blu-ray this week and tells the story of a group of photographers in Apartheid South Africa. Other new releases include the terrible action film Priest, starring Paul Bettany; and Demolition Man on Blu-ray.
Opening at a theatre near you this weekend, Kristen Wiig stars in what could be the break-out comedy of the season, Bridesmaids; and Paul Bettany battles vampires in the disastrously reviewed action film, Priest.
This week’s new releases include: the musical Burlesque, starring Christina Aguilera; James Franco’s drama, 127 Hours; the farcical dramatic comedy, Love and Other Drugs; plus a look at Faster, and Bambi.
This is apparently a bad week to be a movie fan, or a movie critic for that matter.
