LIFT (2024)

It was so nice to see Kevin Hart play a serious role this year. I was happy I made the time to check out this movie, as it was worth my time. So Kevin played the lead role; he was the head of a high-level gang that specialised in stealing very expensive luxury items. On one of his missions, he met a pretty lady who was also on a mission; they liked each other. Then they drifted apart, never saw again until months later. Well, he finds out she is an FBI agent and has assigned them to go on a deadly mission or stand trial and go to jail. To avoid going to jail, they will have to pull off one of the deadliest missions by robbing a plane in motion from London to Zurich without causing a scene. Well, you will need to check out this mission to see how they pulled it off seamlessly, or so I thought. The 104-minute action/comedy movie was directed by F. Gary. Gary featured actors like Ursula Carbero, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Sam Worthington, Billy Magnussen, Kim Yoon-ji, Jean Reno, and many more.

LAST CALL FOR ISTANBUL (2023)

This is a simple Turkish drama movie. It was a cool and touching story about fighting to save your marriage. So Mehmet and Serin have been married for a long time now. They met when they were younger on a trip and fell in love with each other; they just couldn’t be separated or live without each other. Serin went on to marry Mehmet despite her dad not accepting her. She was so in love that she left all her dreams and careers to be with the other. On the other hand, her husband had given up his music career to be with her, as that was what her father wanted; he wanted him to get a good 9–5 pm job, which would enable him to take good care of his daughter. To save their marriage, which was on the verge of divorce, they decided to embark on one last trip to see if they could savour what was left of their once-perfect marriage. You will have to check the movie out to see if it worked or not. The 91-minute drama and romance movie was directed by Gonenc Uyanik and featured actors like Kivanc Tatlitug, Beren Saat, Annie McCain Engman, Joy Donze, Zihan Zhao, Michael Loayza, etc.

THE HIGHWAYMEN (2019)

I struggled with this movie; I couldn’t lay my hands on what it was. It’s hard to tell; either I was tired or the Cowboy movie just wasn’t for me. Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow were on a rampage from city to city, killing cops and causing havoc everywhere they went. It was like having the bad Robin Hood in the city as they stole and helped the less privileged. People in the varying cities loved and idolised them, praising and protecting them from being caught. When the authorities found out that it was taking the cops too long to bring them to books, they had to invite the former
Texas Rangers Frank Hamer and Maney Gault joined forces with cops and captured these notorious criminals, who had been on the loose for so long. The 132-minute crime/drama movie was directed by John Lee Hancock and featured acts like Kevin Costner, Woody Harrelson, Kathy Bates, John Carroll Lynch, Kim Dickens, Ted Hinton, and many more.
