Safe House (狡兔計畫)

"Forgettable” probably isn't a word you'd expect to use to describe a film starring Denzel Washington, Ryan Reynolds, Vera Farmiga, Brendan Gleeson and Sam Shepard. But unfortunately, that's one of the most apt when pondering “Safe House.”
Contraband (禁運品)

Yes, “Contraband” follows the tried-and-true One Last Job formula. Yes, Mark Wahlberg is nestled deep within his comfort zone as a former master criminal who's lived a dangerous life and gone straight.
Haywire (即刻反擊)

A straight-up action picture may sound unusual coming from Steven Soderbergh, but as he has demonstrated repeatedly throughout his career, he is keen to experiment with every genre imaginable.
'Black & White Episode I: The Dawn of Assault' (痞子英雄首部曲:全面開戰)

From the opening moment when a bomb explodes and annihilates everything in sight, “Black & White Episode I: The Dawn of Assault” (痞子英雄首部曲:全面開戰) makes clear its intention to claim all the tropes of Hollywood action films.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo <br>(千禧三部曲I:龍紋身的女孩)</br>

Hollywood has commandeered Sweden's big literary export, “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” without compromising the story's Scandinavian roots or its sense of barrenness, even hopelessness.
Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows <br>(福爾摩斯:詭影遊戲)</br>

Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law bicker and banter and bob and weave with significantly diminishing returns in this sequel to the 2009 smash hit “Sherlock Holmes” (福爾摩斯).
Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol <br>(不可能的任務:鬼影行動)</br>

Luckily for Tom Cruise, “Mission: Impossible — Ghost Protocol” is one of his finest action flicks, just what's needed to potentially restore some of this fallen star's box-office bankability.
In Time (鐘點戰)

With “In Time,” writer-director Andrew Niccol takes a clever, compelling idea — that time is currency and you can buy your way to immortality or die broke — and beats it into the ground.
Real Steel (鋼鐵擂台)

Jackman's Charlie Kenton is an ex-boxer scraping by in the near future as a promoter of brawling robots, which have taken over the sport from human fighters.
Warriors of the Rainbow: Seediq Bale Part 2 (賽德克.巴萊[下]:彩虹橋)

“The Rainbow Bridge” (彩虹橋), the second half of director Wei Te-sheng (魏德聖)'s epic film “Seediq Bale” (賽德克.巴萊), is packed with more action but is also more convoluted and weaker in character development.
