The Debt Collector 2

It's a new release! We can't vouch for the picture's quality, but nonetheless it's something fresh to talk about. In an equally pleasing sign cinemas are returning to normal, this week not only do we have one original feature to talk about, we have three! The first of which is the so straightforward its practically horizontal, The Debt Collector 2. A sequel to the just as obscure Debt Collector, B-movie martial arts hero Scott Adkins returns as...well...a debt collector. In this one the Brit teams up with Aussie-playing-an-American Louis Mandylor to form the gruffest duo west of a Guy Richie flick. The pair must kick their way out of more than a couple of impossible situations to evade an evil kingpin. In all fairness, though, it doesn't look too bad. A bit of mindless fun, especially during these times, may be just what the doctor ordered. IMDb gives it 5.6

Golden Job

Another action punch-up to see us through a few hours, Hong-Kong hand-to-hand-combat heist hoopla Golden Job is exactly the picture youíd expect. The only twist being at the beginning our heroes, five mercenary burglars, turn out to be adopted orphan brothers and the truck they are charged with hi-jacking is supposed to be full of medical supplies which they aim to distribute to poorly children. As it transpires, the vehicle is packed with gold and the owner wants it back. IMDb gives it 5.7

Coma

A Russian sci-fi adventure (dubbed in English), Coma takes a bit of explaining but once youíre in itís an enjoyable watch. Essentially everyone who slips into a coma in the real world ends up in the same alternate universe where the regular laws of physics do not apply. In this world there is a fight between good and evil. In an effort to survive and try and wake up, architect Viktor must choose sides and become something he never thought imaginable in order to find the exit back to reality. IMDb gives it 6.5

Dora and The Lost City of Gold

And we return to the world of re-releases, but itís a goodie so we canít complain too much. The first in the inevitable Dora The Explorer film franchise, The Lost City of Gold establishes the excellent Isabela Moner as the real-life version of our animated hero. In this movie she must lead her monkey, Boots, and all other friends to the lost city in order to rescue missing parents Elena (Eva Longoria) and Marquez (Michael Pena). Itís fun! Rotten Tomatoes gives it 84%. david@khaleejtimes.com
