'Hunter Killer' Review
There’s no denying that Gerard Butler has been box office poison. Since his 2007 breakthrough blockbuster “300”, not one of the 18 live-action films Butler has starred in has grossed more than $100 million in the U.S.. And most of those movies (including last year’s “Geostorm”) simply aren’t very good. When it comes to financial success (or lack of it), “Hunter Killer” will more than likely extend the actor’s streak to 19 bombs in a row. The film has been on the shelf for nearly two years. And it’s being released by small Summit Premiere at the end of October. The first, cheesy trailer, which made “Hunter Killer” look like a Direct to DVD movie, probably sealed its fate.
Jonah Hill has starred in some of the biggest comedies, dramas and animated films of the past decade. Some of his on-screen work has been impressive, including his Oscar nominated performance in “Moneyball” and supporting role in this summer’s little-seen “Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot”. But he’s still got a long way to go behind the camera, as his directorial debut “mid90s” proves.

I’m a big fan of movies that allow an actor to step back into the role of an iconic character he/she played decades earlier.
