‘Interstellar’ Ultimate Frontier ambitions, ‘John Wick’ joins this week’s Malaysia releases

Interstellar John Wick Malaysia

Releasing this week, Christoper Nolan’s Interstellar is set to thrill through space travel, while John Wick features Keanu Reeves back in stylish action

Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar will be hitting cinemas in Malaysia on 6 November, and that means in 2 days time. Briefly expressed by Nolan (director, co-writer and co-producer) and co-producer Emma Thomas (who’s also Mrs. Nolan) in this featurette, the filmmakers hope to excite and rekindle interests in space travel with their film:

The highly anticipated sci-fi film was premiered in Europe recently and the reviews have been mostly positive, although not as overwhelming as I was expecting. It’s currently 74% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes with a 7.5/10 average rating through 50 critic reviews. They are generally saying that although it lacks of human touch, it’s very thrilling, through-provoking and visually awesome. Can’t wait to catch it.

Also releasing this Thursday is the already Certified Fresh film with 85% of positive reviews, John Wick, an action thriller by first-time directors David Leitch and Chad Stahelski starring The One, Keanu Reeves (47 Ronin, Man of Tai Chi, The Matrix trilogy, Speed) as the titular retired crime underworld legend who’s forced back into action by a brutal Russian mobster for revenge and redemption.

People have been comparing it with The Equalizer (released a couple of months back, stars Denzel Washington) due to its plot similarities, but the true fact is that it’s an overused concept of the genre. What matters is which one’s more entertaining and what makes good use of cliches. I didn’t have the chance to catch The Equalizer but through critic reviews, John Wick seems to have won by a mile despite releasing later than it.

As usual, stay tuned for my reviews on these films. The other highlight movie that are releasing in Malaysia this week is Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno, which manga/anime fans would be pleased to know.
