Action, suspense, comedy, horror and good looking woman are the fundamentals of a great “man” flick. Movies like Iron Man, Gladiator, 300, The Hangover and Saw are a few of the movies that will go down as perfect “man” movies.
The list of movies below will be coming out over the next few weeks and we think that they should definitely live up to the standard we mentioned above…
Iron Man 2
Iron Man is definitely one of the best action movies out there. A pretty decent plot and a plethora of intense action scenes make it a great movie to watch with the end leaving us wanting a bit more, for obvious reasons.
We enter the sequel with Tony Stark, the man behind the mask, not hiding the fact that he is “the” hero, Iron Man. Now knowing who the Iron Man is, a joint senate committee calls Stark before them to find out why he will not share the secret of the technology. Stark refuses to share the information because he fears it will end up in the wrong hands.
However, new enemies are afoot, including the beautiful Scarlett Johansson, bringing new dangers and new difficulties for Iron Man to overcome. Iron Man 2 will be in South African movie houses from the end of April.
Well, you may have heard the Robin Hood stories 100 times over, but when you have both the director and star (Russell Crowe) of Gladiator involved, you can only expect to be blown away.
The plot follows the Robin Hood “steal from the rich and give back to the poor” ideology, only with Ridley Scott (director) most certainly giving it the same epic-scene finery that made most of us love the Gladiator for. Robin Hood is set to release on the 14th of May 2010.
District 13 – Ultimatum
District 13 – Ultimatum is set in Paris, France, where a total lockdown of the area (District 13) has been enforced by the local cops to try and keep control of a crime-riddled district of the city. The chaos is amplified after the death of a gang overlord, Taha Bemamud, which leaves a battle for power between five rival territorial gang lords.
When the Secret Service tries to persuade the president to bulldoze “District 13”, two rogue cops head out to save the area armed with an appetite for gun fire and gravity-defying martial arts (look out for the famous parkour stunt sequences). This action-packed flick will be in cinemas on the 23rd of April 2010.
