Gunpowder Milkshake (2021)
Why should boys have all the fun? In this Karen Gillan starrer, it’s the women who give them a run! “Gunpowder Milkshake” follows the journey of Sam, a ruthless assassin who was abandoned at a tender age. When she decides to protect an innocent girl and turn on her employers, the decision leads her to connect with the very person she never wanted to face again: Her mother. As Sam, her mom and a bunch of feisty females prepare to unleash hell; the audience is treated to a barrage of electric action set pieces.
With the finest of Hollywood talents, right from Karen Gillan, Lena Headey, Michelle Yeoh, to Carla Gugino and Paul Giamatti on board, this one’s a must watch for action junkies! “Gunpowder Milkshake” arrives in cinemas on the 10th of September 2021.
If commercial fare isn’t your cup of tea, and you are looking for an “out of the box” actioner, this is one movie you just can’t miss! An atypical action drama with the dashing Ryan Gosling in the lead, “Drive” features quite a few bloody brawls and brutal sequences. The film sees Gosling play an anonymous stuntman cum mechanic who is inadvertently pulled into a crazy spiral when he tries to help out his neighbour. Faced with unpredictable twists and turns that keep pushing him further to the brink of deadly violence, we are always kept on the tenterhooks in this Nicolas Winding Refn directorial.
“Drive” is available on Amazon Prime Video, Google Play Movies and iTunes.
Brad Pitt essaying a world weary army sergeant is reason enough to tune into this thrilling period piece, but “Fury” is also a movie that blends stunning action with strong storytelling.
Set in the final portion of World War II, the film revolves around the claustrophobic confines of a battle tank and the five inhabitants inside it. As bittersweet friendships are made and innocent soldiers are lost, we discover the dirty price of war and the irreplaceable damage it leaves on so many lives. While conveying a powerful message, “Fury” also contains incredible scenes where the battle tank leaves nothing to imagination when it comes to destruction.

Well, then Liam Neeson has your back! “Cold Pursuit” is a chilling action-revenge drama about a bereaved father who decides to decimate the very people responsible for his son’s death. But, the plan is not so easy, as the enemy is a cold blooded drug cartel that doesn’t blink twice before going on a killing spree. How does a common man fight back against dangerous criminals? Watch this film to know!
