Choke

Director: Clark Gregg

IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1024715/

Review: Plenty of good stuff, especially from the actors, but the film's too messy and fractured to get a proper sense of the characters.

Go see it if: You want a few laughs and some ideas, I think this film is probably better suited for television though, there I said it.

And if you liked: Fight Club, Em...

Check this out: Choke

Vanishing Point

Director: Richard C. Sarafian

Quantum of Solace

Director: Marc Forster

IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0830515/

Review: A fairly enjoyable string of action sequences that drags towards the end.

Go see it if: You're not too tired, there's a lot of action.

And if you liked: Casino Royale, I've been told the Bourne series but I must admit I haven't seen them.
