Published Jun 11, 2010It's Friday and what better way to gear up for the weekend than checking out our reviews for the newest films hitting theatres today. So head on over to Exclaim!'s Recently Reviewed motion section to check out what's worth watching this week.
First off, we have Joe Carnahan's remake of The A-Team, starring Liam Neeson, Bradley Cooper and Jessica Biel in a modernized spin on the classic '80s action TV series.
In a similar vein, Jackie Chan and Will Smith's 12-year-old son, Jaden Smith, tackle another '80s remake with The Karate Kid. Like the original, the story line follows a kid from Detroit who gets beat up by a bully and finds he must learn kung fu as well. But this time, the film is set in China.
Also, we have Agora, directed by Alejandro Amenabar. The film stars Rachel Weisz the pagan philosopher Hypatia set in 4th century CE Alexandria. Another film to check out has to be Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage, in which documentary filmmakers Scot McFayden and Sam Dunn point their lenses at Canadian rock legends Rush.
