Movie Reviews

Violent, shocking and fast movie!
Ary Luiz Dalazen Jr. | 12/18/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"In 1997, Burt Reynolds was at the peak of his finance troubles, and, taking every role offered, he did five or six movie just that year. Boogie Nights was one of those films he did just for the money but that, by fate's irony, saved his career and made him a movie star again (Reynolds is now finishing an action flick with Richard Dreyfuss, The Crew, produced by Barry Sonnenfeld). Anyway, the other ones are not bad movies. The Hunter's Moon, for example, counted with Reynolds' powerful performance, and with a great cast (including Keith Carradine), Crazy Six had a lot os style and plenty of cool scenes (Albert Pyun, the director of this one, is known for having his own way of making films) and Pups, not yet released in the United States, is an interesting hostage drama. Raven is a low-budget action movie. Jerry Katz, a .k. a . Raven (Reynolds) is a cold and cynical mercenary who has to lead his men into enemies' lines to recover a decoder for the Pentagon. They are betrayed by their bosses, and the mission is damned, a complete fiasco. But Raven scapes, and he wants to set scores. He will do what it takes (including blowing up buildings) to have his personal revenge.Russel Sohlberg did few action movies as a director, but the ones he did as a stunt director were impressive. He is responsible for the stunt scenes in the Die Hard series and many others, so, at least, Raven has pretty good adventure moments. From the begining (where Raven's team have to recoved the decoder and get involved in a gun shooting) to the end, the film is a "tour de force" marked by the extreme violence. Burt Reynolds is terrific as the cynical and violent Raven, he has memorable lines and, although Raven didn't helped to rescue his authority back (what was reserved to Boogie Nights), it is a uncompromising entertainment."
Burt Reynolds and Krista Allen keep this movie interesting.

"If it were not for the talent and beauty of Krista Allen, this movie would be a bomb. Burt Reynolds as the evil commander, makes this one of his best roles in recent memory."
Sexy plot twister thriller
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Expect the unexpected in this movie. Burt Reynolds is so convincing as a cold,robotlike assassin. Krista Allen gives a natural, dynamic, top grade performance. If action, a storyline and beautiful women are what you want in a movie, this will be in your top shelf in your DVD library!"
Good movie!!
