Film Review: ‘In Like Flynn’

  • Variety
Film Review: ‘In Like Flynn’
A jauntily old-fashioned adventure that plays like the nautical equivalent of a picaresque road movie, “In Like Flynn” offers a fanciful glimpse at the pre-fame formative experiences of Old Hollywood luminary Errol Flynn, indicating that the future star of “Captain Blood” and “The Adventures of Robin Hood” engaged in a fair share of death-defying derring-do long before he swashed a single buckle on screen.

It’s based on Flynn’s 1937 book “Beam Ends,” which was inspired (or so he claimed) by the Tasmanian-born actor’s real-life exploits. But even though this handsomely mounted Australian-produced movie is labeled in the opening credits as “A Mostly True Account of the Hollywood Star’s Early Adventures,” it’s quite obvious that the credited scriptwriters — a quartet that includes Luke Flynn, the protagonist’s grandson — liberally laced their scenario with material borrowed from, ahem, works of fiction. To put it another way: There are dollops of “Jaws” here,

Errol Flynn biopic In Like Flynn gets a poster and trailer

Ahead of its Us theatrical release this Friday, a poster and trailer have arrived online for the action adventure In Like Flynn. Directed by Russell Mulcahy (Highlander), the film stars Thomas Cocquerel as Errol Flynn and is inspired by the early days of his life in Australia before he found fame as an actor; take a look here…

Before Errol Flynn became one of the biggest movie stars in Hollywood, he was braving cannibals and crocodiles while searching the jungles of Papua New Guinea for gold with his ragtag crew. Flynn is forced to learn what it means to be a master of his own destiny. In Like Flynn is a mythical and satirical coming-of-age story about four men on a journey to find hope, adventure and fortune.

In Like Flynn arrives in cinemas on January 25th and features a cast that also includes Corey Large, William Moseley, Isabel Lucas,

Thomas Cocquerel is Errol Flynn in Us Trailer for 'In Like Flynn' Film

"The sirens of the sea beckon." Blue Fox Entertainment has debuted the official Us trailer for the indie film In Like Flynn, which is getting a surprise release in just a few weeks later this month. In Like Flynn is a biopic that depicts iconic actor Errol Flynn's roust-about early life in Australia, before he became a world famous celebrity. In those days he was an adventurer, opium smuggler, gambler, street fighter, womanizer, and gold prospector. The film, based on Flynn's early autobiography "Beam Ends," is inspired by the writers' travels through Australia following in the footsteps of producer Luke Flynn's iconic grandfather. Thomas Cocquerel stars as Errol, with a full cast including Corey Large, Clive Standen, Dan Fogler, William Moseley, Isabel Lucas, David Wenham, David Hennessey, Grace Huang, Costas Mandylor, Callan Mulvey, and Nathalie Kelley. This looks like a good time, although a bit rough around the edges.

10 Things You Didn’t Know about Isabel Lucas

There are pretty faces aplenty in Hollywood and saying that they’re all alike is something that some folks would say just to avoid having to pick one out from the crowd. Isabel Lucas is one of those pretty faces to be honest but she’s able to be picked out from a crowd largely because like everyone else she has her own set of skills and personality that she can fall back on while still getting the job done and showing people that she is talented enough for consideration. She’s a bit quiet sometimes and not quite as forcible in her

Bo Report: Soft launch for ‘First Man’ while ‘In Like Flynn’ misfires

‘In Like Flynn.’

Universal’s First Man has an Academy Award-winning director in La La Land’s Damien Chazelle, an Oscar-lauded writer in Spotlight’s Josh Singer and stars two-time Oscar nominee Ryan Gosling.

But that combination did not catapult the Neil Armstrong biopic to great heights in Australia, the Us or 20 other markets last weekend.

Meanwhile Sony’s Venom easily retained the top spot while Fox’s Bad Times at the El Royale opened better here than in the Us, which isn’t saying much, and Umbrella Entertainment’s Errol Flynn biopic In Like Flynn flopped.

Directed by Russell Mulcahy and starring Thomas Cocquerel as the Tasmanian-born Flynn alongside Corey Large, William Moseley, Clive Standen, Callan Mulvey, Isabel Lucas and David Wenham, the action-adventure took just $22,000 from limited sessions on 69 screens and $38,000 including previews.

Alice Foulcher Stars in Official Trailer for Indie Comedy 'That's Not Me'

"You think I'm talented, don't you?" The Orchard has debuted a trailer for the indie comedy That's Not Me, a quirk story about a struggling woman from Australia who has to take an "underwhelming" job at a local cinema after failing to get any acting gigs. Aussie comedian/actress Alice Foulcher stars as Polly, and the cast includes Isabel Lucas, Richard Davies, Belinda Misevski, Rowan Davie, and Andrew S. Gilbert. Here's a more specific synopsis for the film: "Constantly mistaken for her famous identical twin, an aspiring actress decides to use her sister's celebrity to her own advantage. What begins harmlessly enough - free clothes, casual sex - ends with disastrous consequences for them both" because her twin sister makes it famous before she does. This played at a bunch of festivals last year and seems like an amusing little indie. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Gregory Erdstein's That's Not Me,

Cool New Trailer for the Sci-Fi Action Thriller The Osiris Child

A new trailer has been released for the upcoming sci-fi action film, The Osiris Child: Science Fiction Volume One. I'm not really sure about that weird subtitle, but the movie looks pretty good! I'm a sucker for sci-fi, though, even the low budget sci-fi stuff like this. There are some pretty cool visuals to check out in the trailer!

The movie was shot in Australia and the cast includes Kellan Lutz, Isabel Lucas, Daniel MacPherson, Luke Ford, and Teagan Croft. Here's the synopsis:

Set in the future in a time of interplanetary colonisation, Sy (Lutz), a mysterious drifter, meets Kane (MacPherson), a lieutenant working for an off-world military contractor, Exor. The unlikely pair must work together to rescue Kane’s young daughter (Croft) and reach safety amid an impending global crisis which was brought on by Exor itself.

New Us Trailer for Sci-Fi Epic 'Osiris Child' Directed by Shane Abbess

"This is going to be fun." Rlj Entertainment has unleashed another new full-length trailer for an under-the-radar sci-fi epic titled The Osiris Child, or rather, The Osiris Child: Science Fiction Volume One in full. You may remember hearing about this, as we posted an international trailer earlier in the year. It's not getting a Us release in the fall. Set in the future in a time of interplanetary colonization, the story is about a drifter, played by Kellan Lutz, who gets mixed up with a lieutenant named Kane who works for a military contractor. They form an alliance and head out to rescue Kane's daughter amid an impending global crisis. Also stars Daniel MacPherson, Isabel Lucas, Rachel Griffiths, and Teagan Croft. This seems crazy ambitious with impressive VFX for an indie production, I just hope it isn't a complete disaster. Take a look. The second trailer for Shane Abbess

Review: Origin Wars (2016)

No matter what else, I have to begin this review by saying that Origins Wars (2016) is an ambitious film. For good or bad, it knows what it wants to be, which is to say a science fiction blockbuster in the spirit of Serenity (2005) or Star Wars (1977), and it does its best to be that. But only that. This is a paradox of a film that at once has enough ambition to be the best “inspired by” movie ever but not to do anything really original. That’s not a bad thing – after all, a good story is a tight story, but the problem is that watching Origin Wars (2016) is like watching a film that you’ve seen thousands of times before late at night after a long, long day.

There’s an alien planet.

Which is cool, don’t get me wrong – and, to the film’s credit, even looks pretty cool.

Michael Bay is a disgusting, deplorable director – and he should be ashamed of himself

Luke Owen is not a fan of Michael Bay and his Transformers movies…

Last night I was unfortunate enough to stumble upon a film I’ve not seen in nearly a decade. It’s an epic failure of a movie, an odious mess of horribly-shot action, gross depictions of women, bizarrely-placed racism and woefully bad writing. The movie was Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, and I would argue to this day that it’s the worst movie ever made.

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is on TV at the moment and is Still The Worst Movie Ever Made.

Luke Owen (@ThisisLukeOwen) June 22, 2017

I watched more of it than I wanted to, really, but only because watching it in 2017 took me back to that fateful night I saw it in theatres in 2009. I wasn’t overly keen on the first Bayformers because – childishly – it wasn’t “my Transformers”, it wasn’t the same robots in disguise that I loved so dearly as a child. Instead it was a typical Bayhem blockbuster, complete with overt sexism and hilariously bad product placement. But Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen was a whole new level of awful. It was insulting, incoherent and down-right unpleasant. In my review at the time I called Transformers: Age of Extinction a “three hour headache”, but on reflection Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen was way worse.

What struck me this time around was just how distasteful and reprehensible the film was when it came to its approach of female characters. I was aware of it back in 2009 – how could you not be – but I’d almost forgotten just how bad it was. Bay films Megan Fox the same way he sexualises the vehicles the Transformers transform into; objects to make small-minded, primitive male audience members salivate. It’s frankly vulgar. In an age where we’re praising Wonder Woman for a great portrayal of women on screen, it’s easy to forget that less than ten years ago this is what we had.

People took Marvel and Scott Derrickson to task – quite rightly so – for more-or-less forgetting that Rachel McAdams was in Doctor Strange, but Bay’s treatment of Megan Fox and co-star Isabel Lucas in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is something else. Fox’s character is draped over a motorcycle with a tight vest and tighter shorts, and Bay makes sure we get a full view of her ass before her face. In a scene where Isabel’s Decepticon shape-shifter tries to seduce Shia LeBeouf’s bumbling Sam, Bay places the camera so we can see her panties. One would imagine this would be the reveal that she’s actually a robot, but the camera is more interested in the colour of her underwear than her character.

While promoting the film Fox let it slip to Jason Soloman at The Guardian that her audition wasn’t your usual affair. “She told me she went to director Michael Bay’s house to audition and he made her wash his Ferrari while he filmed her,” Soloman wrote. “She said she didn’t know what had happened to that footage. When I put it to Bay himself, he looked suitably abashed. ‘Er, I don’t know where it is either.'” She also compared Bay to Hitler, an interview that got her in so much hot water several crew members posted an open letter to Fox calling her, “dumb as rocks” among other things. “When facing the press, Megan is the queen of talking trailer trash and posing like a porn star,” the loathsome note stated. “And yes we’ve had the unbearable time of watching her try to act on set, and yes, it’s very cringe-able. So maybe, being a porn star in the future might be a good career option. But make-up beware, she has a paragraph tattooed to her backside (probably due her rotten childhood) easily another 45 minutes in the chair!'” Well doesn’t that sound like a nice crew to be around? I wonder who could breed this kind of contempt for their female co-workers?

“Megan developed this Spice Girl strength, this woman-empowerment stuff that made her feel awkward about her involvement with Michael, who some people think is a very lascivious filmmaker, the way he films women,’ LeBeouf told the Los Angeles Times in 2011.”Mike films women in a way that appeals to a 16-year-old sexuality. It’s summer. It’s Michael’s style. And I think she never got comfortable with it. This is is a girl who was taken from complete obscurity and placed in a sex-driven role in front of the whole world and told she was the sexiest woman in America. And she had a hard time accepting it. When Mike would ask her to do specific things, there was no time for fluffy talk. We’re on the run. And the one thing Mike lacks is tact.”

So Michael Bay objectifies women, what else is new? We all knew he was like this and we’ve oddly just let it slide while his idiotic movies make billions of dollars around the world. But what makes me so sad about all this, what upsets me the most, is that these are movies targeted at kids.

The Transformers are, and always will be, glorified toy commercials. The original 1986 movie was made simply to take out the old toyline and bring in a new one. Paramount and Hasbro penned the deal for a live-action Transformers movie to make and sell more playthings to kids. And, to be honest, there’s nothing wrong with that. Star Wars is the most toyetic movie ever made, but it features rich, deep, loveable characters who go on wonderful adventures. Bay’s Transformers movies feature none of that, and instead paints a picture that women are there to be ogled and drooled over. The producers can claim they’re aiming the Transformers movie series at the teenage market (as if that was a good excuse), but the figures sure as hell aren’t. They’re sold to small, impressionable children.

As a comparison, let’s compare Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen to the 1986’s The Transformers: The Movie. One features a song which features the lyrics, “dare to be all that you can be” while the other has a woman dry-humping a motorcycle for teenage boys to jack off to. Both are marketed to kids. Just think about that.

Bay putting this sort of nonsense in Bad Boys II is one thing, but a movie designed to make children pester their parents for action figures is something entirely different. And that’s why Michael Bay is a disgusting, deplorable director – and he should be ashamed of himself.
