One In The Chamber Movie Review

Above Pic: Poster for One In The Chamber


After his academy award Cuba Gooding seems to have found his niche in smaller budget action films. One In The Chamber has Cuba playing an assassin named Ray Carver who tries to play both sides of gang war violence. Opening up with a wild shootout against the Russian Suverov gang, One In The Chamber starts out with a bang, with Carver trying to assassinate one of Russian gang's big bosses.

About 25 minutes in the movie takes and uplifting and sarcastic action turn when we are introduced to Dolph Lundgren's character Aleksey Andreev. He approaches four thugs and they say "So they send a dog to pick up the scraps, Dolph reply's "No they sent a Wolf!"

The narrative from Cuba's character, sometimes hokey dialogue, and disjoint plot points detract from what could have been a pretty decent action picture. Following the opening action sequence, Cuba's character starts into a diatribe of introspective that is rather tedious, and actually detracts from the flow of One In The Chamber. This is NOT the fault of the actors, it is obvious that they are trying their best to deal with the source material.

Aleksey arrives as a hired assasin, and is asked what he does. He calmly states, he plays chess, fixes 70s cars, repairs 90s pinball machines, and for the right price hi MIGHT kill anything that breathes. HAHA. Come on man, that is just ridiculous, but I am not gonna lie, I did laugh especially that Dolph is wearing a mufti-colored Hawaiian shirt while saying this, in fact he seems to be on permanent vacation in One In The Chamber.

Well the Russian gang goes after the Czechoslovakian gang, and  more action ensues. Again though the action in One In The Chamber seems to move at a disjoint pace. Their is no urgency to the proceedings of the 90 minute film. I really wanted to like this film as I admire the body of work of both actors.

There is a decent fight between Dolph and Cuba about an hour in that propels this film to a "rent it" status. Actually I believe with a better script and film the two could make a decent "team". The fight is well choreographed, and marks a change in direction in One In The Chamber.

Overall, I have to give this film a rent at 6 out of 10. One In The Chamber is not the worst action movie, honestly though, my expectations were higher.

The Movie releases August 21st and Amazon has a Blu-Ray DVD combo pack on sale @

I am usually wary of many of the "help us fund it projects" but a couple caught my eye this month. Got an email from a very young independent female director named Shiphrah Meditz, her film: The Dying Eye is about a schizophrenic teenaged computer programer who fights crime, meets a young lady who challenges his actions. Of note, some of the money from the project will be a charitable donation. Hack your browsers to The Dying Eye project page @ 


Kind hearted actress/philanthropist Stephanie Cheeva has created a page for her Love Never Fails World Charity.  I have known Stephanie for a decade now, and am amazed how she dedicated her life to the plight of sex traffic children.

Camp silliness Check photo below!


The ‘Friday’s Child’ Trilogy, now in development, is the first major horror project from new British independent production company, Pentagram Pictures Ltd. Created by Dean Meadows, former publisher and editor of Vengeance – The X-Treme Movie Magazine, ‘Friday’s Child’ promises to be very different from the average ‘scary movie’, thanks to it’s lead star and Associate Producer, ‘The Queen Of Martial Arts Movies’, Cynthia Rothrock.
“I wanted to do something different,” said writer, producer and director, Dean Meadows, “and putting Cynthia in the middle of a British horror movie, makes it quite unique!” The filmmaker continues, “Whilst she will no doubt show off her legendary martial arts skills to please her massive fan base during the bloody and brutal fight scenes, ‘Friday’s Child’ will show a whole new side to Cynthia’s on-screen talents and I believe the role is much more complex than any other character she has been given the opportunity to play in the past. From my point of view as both script writer and director, the story and acting in this movie are just as important as the action and I want to push Cynthia to give the performance of her career, I’m calling this ‘The Re-invention Of Rothrock’! Cynthia and I have been in touch for over ten years and we have been talking about this project for the last two years. 

Alongside Rothrock and Brandon, the trilogy’s strong supporting cast also includes, TNA Impact Wrestling star ‘Winter’, (aka Katarina Waters,) cult scream queen Melantha Blackthorne, (‘Death Race’) and the amazing and sexy British actresses, Emily Booth, (‘Evil Aliens’,) Zara Phythian, (‘The Hike’,) and Eileen Daly, (‘Razor Blade Smile’,). 
“‘Friday’s Child’ is unlike a lot of movies in the horror genre,” said co-star and Associate Producer, Daly, “reading the script you genuinely feel for the characters and want them to survive, but once the action kicks in it is relentless and horrific, for me the whole project has the feel and style of Japanese Horror to it”.

The Tall Man Movie Review

Above Pic: Poster of The Tall Man

With the big budget release of Total Recall on everyone's mind, Dan's Movie Report takes a hot Jessica Biel independent turn with the thriller The Tall Man. Jessica stretches her acting chops as nurse Julia Denning in a downtrodden town, where children keep disappearing at an alarming rate, due to a mysterious "Tall Man" lurking in the shadows.

The plot on The Tall Man unravels rather methodically for the first 20 minutes of the film.  All of that changes in the middle of the night, when a window shattering leads to a startling change of events, and David is abducted from Juila's Care.

The final hour of this film is crazy, violent, seething with life and energy. No way am I gonna spoil this masterpiece. Julia Denning does not sit idly by an just let things happen, she exudes energy and tries to get to the bottom of the mystery. Yeah, surprising things happen, and it would be a crime to spoil it!


Jessica Biel, all is not what it seems in The Tall Man! (C) Cold Rock Productions 2012

The Tall Man is part horror, mystery, and thriller wrapped into one package, and in Jessica Biel the producers thankfully found a perfect person to play the lead character. Jessica is at times vulnerable like a child, other times her expression and attitude pierce daggers.

Technically The Tall Man is shot in a dark foreboding style often the scenic background is blocked out and the character's faces are shown in up close shots. Time is taken in the set design with the town, as dilapidated buildings and cars are strewn throughout the landscape.

The acting in The Tall Man is solid. Veteran character actor William B. Davis is stoic as the Police Detective, Rough girl actress Samantha Ferris exudes force in her portrayal of Tracy. Eve Harlow as Christine, plays a sometimes mousy character with an alternate side. The quality of acting serves to enhance the film.

Overall this is a MUST purchase. One of those films that deserve a place on your mantle. I rate The Tall Man an 8.5 out of 10, and sulty Jessica an 11 out of 10. One day she will win an academy award, if Hollywood would wake the hell up and look past her beauty and recognize her acting chops!

Pre-order The Tall Man from the Amazon link below, it ships September 25th.
