Enigma, a review by Silence_of_Lambs


Enigma  




Summary:
During the heart of World War II, in March of 1943, cryptoanalysts at Britain's code-breaking center have discovered that the Germans have changed their Enigma Code. Authorities enlist the help of a brilliant young man named Tom Jericho (Dougray Scott) to help them break the code again. The possibility of a spy within the British code-breakers' ranks looms and Tom's love, Claire (Saffron Burrows), has disappeared. To solve the mysteries, Tom joins Claire's best friend, Hester Wallace (Kate Winslet).

My Thoughts:
Nice one.
This movie has everything a good spy-thriller needs, a broken (anti)-hero, a mysterious beautiful woman, a conspiracy that was built to cover-up another (even greater) conspiracy ... all packed into enthralling 2 hours.
The plot turns and twists so that until the very end you never know where exactly it may want to take you. It's never actually misleading though, you just follow the traces with the main characters until the whole thing is lying spread out before you.

Nice to watch, mediate paced thriller that actually makes you want to know the end.

My Rating: (out of possible 5)

All Night Long, a review by Jimmy




Title : All Night Long (1992)

Overview
Three high-school students are witnesses to a violent murder. Joined together by this unforgettable experience in a way they cannot understand, their link to the world of violence strengthens when a group of rapists attack one of their female friends. Embracing the shocking underworld of savagery, the three teenagers make a pact to find the rapists and exact revenge for their friend.

My Impression
It's been a while since I've watch this one (at least more than 2 years) and I've obviously forgot that this isn't a typical horror movie. It's more your typical familly friendly japanese movie ;)

Of course this isn't true (at least I hope) since the movie is a "what if?" type of movie, in this case what would you do if your new girlfriend would be raped and murdered by a gang of teenage bad guy? Being a Japanese movie if your answer was "call the police" you are wrong... The real answer : go there with 2 new friends and beat the crap out of them and more. That can be sound like a piece of garbage, but a long time is pass in the film to show the love story between the 2 young protagonists (almost one hour) and this revenge doesn't sound gratuitious. Yes it's bloody and violent, but this isn't without reasons like in the stupid Hostel. You will see that no one can used violence and not be affected by it (it doesn't end well for neither the rape gang and the revenge gang). Some of the acting look over the top, but I see that more as a way to reflect what happen when your brain switch is at the off position.

2 others films were made in that serie, but I haven't see them yet...

I recommand this film, but it isn't a movie for everybody

This series is my favorite TV series from the mid-90s. I watched it a lot at the time. I had a lot of episodes taped and used to watch them again and again.
The pilot is good. Though this series hasn't aged that well.
