MANHUNT UNABOMBER | © 2017 Discovery Channel

Discovery Channel’s miniseries MANHUNT: UNABOMBER is based on the writings and life experiences of former FBI agent James R. “Fitz” Fitzgerald, who was crucial in the capture of serial bomber Theodore “Ted” Kaczynski. Fitzgerald, who has written extensively about his career in various facets of law enforcement, is played in MANHUNT: UNABOMBER by Sam Worthington (AVATAR). He is known for pioneering forensic linguistics, a technique of investigating a suspect’s use of words and writing style to see if they match the profile and, in the case of the Unabomber, Kaczynski’s anonymously-penned manifestos. At a party thrown by Discovery Channel for […]Read On »

Movie Review: TRANSCENDENCE

TRANSENDENCE | © 2014 Warner Bros.

Stars: Johnny Depp, Rebecca Hall, Paul Bettany, Cillian Murphy, Morgan Freeman Writer: Jack Paglen Director: Wally Pfister Distributor: Warner Bros. Release Date: April 18, 2014 TRANSCENDENCE tackles some huge ideas. What is consciousness? Can consciousness be proved? How can we prove our identity? What, for others, constitutes acceptable, valuable proof? And that’s before Jack Paglen’s script takes on the huge issues of whether some loss of autonomy is an acceptable trade-off for life and health. These issues don’t just get lip service but form much of the narrative spine of TRANSCENDENCE, and for the better part of the film, it […]Read On »

Rating: Unrated Stars: Paul Bettany, Mark Strong, Stephen Graham, Brian Cox Writer: Bill Gallagher Director: Nick Murphy Distributor: RLJ Entertainment Release Date: home video/digital download, September 10, 2013 A British crime drama – hell, any kind of production whatever – starring Paul Bettany, Mark Strong, Brian Cox and Stephen Graham is going to be worth seeing. As it happens, BLOOD has merits above and beyond its cast, with director Nick Murphy and writer Bill Gallagher maintaining a near-claustrophobic tension as Bettany’s English police detective Joe Fairburn grapples with guilt, fear and rage. Joe works in a precinct with his brother […]Read On »

Chandor Distributor: Lionsgate Release Date: October 21, 2011 MARGIN CALL has a foundation in solid drama.

Chandor, also has a superlative cast, with Kevin Spacey, Paul Bettany, Jeremy Irons and Stanley Tucci, just to name a few of the key actors, […]Read On »

Movie Review: PRIEST

PRIEST movie poster | ©2011 Screen Gems

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Paul Bettany, Karl Urban, Cam Gigandet, Maggie Q, Lily Collins, Christopher Plummer, Stephen Moyer Writer: Cory Goodman, based on the graphic novel series by Min-Woo Hyung Director: Scott Stewart Distributor: Screen Gems Release Date: May 13, 2011 PRIEST is a decent enough post-apocalyptic action movie, pitting a kinetic superhero against an army of darkness, but the film’s reliance on archetypes is at odds with what seem to be its intended philosophical underpinnings. By the end, we can’t tell if director Scott Stewart and screenwriter Cory Goodman have intentionally managed to avoid being overly pretentious in adapting Min-Woo […]Read On »

During the PRIEST press event at WonderCon 2011 in San Francisco, Paul Bettany’s co-star Cam Gigandet threw him under the bus about an embarrassing moment where he had to have training wheels installed on his bike because it was too dangerous to ride. Of course, ASSIGNMENT X had to ask Bettany about it. “I had this big ass bike, and I was allowed to ride it if only it was a straight line,” Bettany says. “But when a stuntman came off the bike at about 35 miles per hour, they said that they weren’t too sure about me being up […]Read On »
