Boy Kills World is a wild movie filled with dark humor, frenetic action, martial arts, and violence. Similar to other revenge movies tells the story of Boy, right from this point you can tell how humorous and not much sense at times it will make, a young deaf mute who must confront the evil Van Der Koy family that has the entire population under their control. Boy lived through a tragic childhood since the Van Der Koys killed his family, leaving him deaf, growing up to build character he takes some of the voices he remember as a kid as his inner voice since through time I would guess he forgot the sound of them. From the day his life completely change and lost his family he came up with a master plan, a three step plan: step one was to find an inner voice, choosing the last one he remembered from a video game; step two was to become strong, stronger like insane strong; and step three was to join a team because he figure out one person can’t take down the Van Der Koys, his only mission is to make them pay for what they did to him an many others on their way.

Movies loaded with action scene sequences has become a trend, the most recent one was Monkey Man with a similar story of a young boy who fights an entity that hurt his family or people some how, Boy Kills World doesn’t seem to be any different but what caught my attention the most was its humor, they run a kinda purge but its a TV show, this gives me even Hunger Games Vibes, the trailer was very colorful and many will relate to the movie due to similarities to certain fight games comes to mind Street Fighter, the training that Boy goes through Kickboxer (1989), over all I think this will be another hit for 2024 and its great amount of content.

Director Moritz Mohr: A New Voice in Cinema

Boy Kills World director is Moritz Mohr, born in 1981 in Frankfurt am Main, Hesse, Germany, a new director to the big screen from what I could found which was not much based on his IMDB profile and productions that he has work in the past, none of them that I can recall although in the past he has been known for working with short films, some of this projects like Akumi (2005) and also has experience on the smaller screen TV, directed the TV Series Viva Berlin (2011) that has a rating of 7.5 on IMDB so there must be something that Moritz Moh does very well and that’s directing. I wonder who is his inspiration as a director because the same way as the scenes has similarities to other movies I mention on the introduction there must influence from other directors for me the king of commercial gore movies Quentin Tarantino, speaking of the dark humor on Boy Kills World reminds me of Grindhouse (2007), on a similar way from the trailer I can tell how they directly make fun of people they kill by accident, this movie I would not recommend for teenagers.

The Film: A Stylish Blend of Action and Realism

Boy Kills World already has great comments from critics and audience online waiting for its debut on Theaters, if I try to explain its style I would have to mention it pays homage to old Westerns, kung fu movies, and 16-bit video games, now days a very unique blend of genres but its the story that worries me a bit since on the trailer itself the story how he lost his family is not so much clear and that’s fine its just a trailer but the movie has to make sense and be simple at the same time, I hope it doesn’t become confusing for the audience from its root to how he achieve his master plan.

This movie directly touches themes of loss, survival, and the harsh realities of adulthood, this last part I mention because we will see Boy as a kid going through different faces until the point he becomes an adult and gather a team that will help him so the question is how a kid that was raise and train in the country side deal with adult problems and behave like one? well I think we wont side such side of him because mostly everything will end up in jokes, that’s the impression I get from the trailer.

Challenges and Controversies

I get the sensation that this movie will slide into a younger audience that might not be prepare for all the violence and even confusion that a story like this might present them as a young age, this has been brought in the past by critics of how cruel and raw the fight scenes can be at times along with its dark humor, the movie also brings in the image of an unjust society causing even more confusion to the young ones who might even believe this is or could be possible.

The movie did have some step back during the cast, there were several changes before it could become a reality but nothing mayor that could become a big step back, this kind of movies with such unique blend of genres requires certain unique actors who are not your traditional action man who is already impregnated on the audience mind from any other successful movie he has been before and deviate the impression the movie wants to put on the audience mind.

Known and Balanced Cast

From Movies to TV series Boy Kills World has a well known balanced cast.

  • Bill Skarsgard leads the group as Boy, known for his role of Pennywise the Dancing Clown in the It movies, which probably skyrocket him to international fame, he also makes his appearance in John Wick: Chapter 4 as the villain Marquis so he did probably got a few stunts and moves out of John Wick.
  • Jessica Rothe takes on the role of June 27, known from the successful Happy Death Day film series, as well as La La Land and All My Life.
  • Michelle Dockery plays the character of Melanie Van Der Koy, recognized for her role as Lady Mary Crawley in the famous period drama Downton Abbey and The Gentlemen (2019).
  • Famke Janssen commands the screen as Hilda Van Der Koy, known for her role in the X-Men franchise as the very famous Jean Grey.
  • Sharlto Copley, known for his performances in movies like District 9 and Elysium, plays Glen Van Der Koy, he also was involve in the very recent action movie Monkey Man.
  • Brett Gelman, recognized for his role in Stranger Things, a very well known face to the character of Gideon Van Der Koy.
  • Isaiah Mustafa joins the cast as Benny, drawing from his experience in the television series Shadowhunters but he has also been on other famous movies from a variety of genres like It Chapter Two, Horrible Bosses and Black-ish.
  • Andrew Koji completes the cast as Basho, known for his role in the television series Warrior and his martial arts skills.

I believe movies like Boy Kills World are needed while the audience escape from the figure of John Wick from the action genre, for some time it was dominated by this character and it was the benchmark for any other upcoming action movie but with the mix of different stories and other actors who in the past has not play the role of a hero who only knows how to kick ass and blow peoples chest with a shotgun over time the dominance of John Wick will start to faint giving space for new and better action movies to create a similar impact on the audience. I find Boy Kills World a movie with a lot of potential but my only worry is that this movie seems a mix of too many others or too many concepts in a single one, for it to be successful will have to make seance and be simple enough so the audience doesn’t get lost, action movies do not require over complicated drama, but other than that I like very much what I have seen on the trailer.

The cast of The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare features a variety of talented actors:

Leading the cast is Henry Cavill brings to life the role of Gus March-Phillips, Cavill is a well known British actor who gained international recognition for his role of Charles Brandon in the TV series The Tudors but he is mostly globally known for bringing to life one of the most beloved characters in the DC Comics Universe, Superman. Cavill’s performance as the Man of Steel has been praised by both critics and fans, solidifying his status as a leading actor in Hollywood, in addition to his work in the DC Extended Universe, he is also known for his role as Geralt of Rivia in the Netflix series The Witcher in my opinion a more complicated role to play.

Alan Ritchson joins Calvin and he plays the role of Anders Lassen, Ritchson is an American actor who is best known for his portrayal of Aquaman / Arthur Curry in the CW series Smallville but his recent performance in the Amazon Prime Video series Reacher that truly showcased his range as an actor with a mix of a big guy who is very strict but at the same time can be kind to others, after playing the main role on Reacher he was praised for its intensity and physicality, making him the perfect choice to play the tough and rugged Lassen in The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare.

Another notable cast member is Alex Pettyfer, who plays the role of Geoffrey Appleyard, Pettyfer is a British actor and model who first gained recognition for his role as Alex Rider in the 2006 movie Stormbreaker and other number of movies including I Am Number Four and Magic Mike playing secondary roles, Pettyfer’s good looks and charisma make him a natural fit for the role of the dashing Appleyard, this movie needs a mix of characters with different talents, both charismatic and looks.

Eiza González also joins the cast as Marjorie Stewart, González is a Mexican actress and singer who first gained recognition for her role in the horror series From Dusk till Dawn: The Series in 2014, not so popular production but at least remind me some of the original movies from the 90s, since then she has appeared in a number of movies, including Baby Driver and others, not the most hype about her role but looks like a good addition that will be an easy fit.

Closing out the cast is Babs Olusanmokun, who plays the role of Heron, Olusanmokun is a Nigerian-American actor who is best known for her role as Dr. Joseph M’Benga in Star Trek: Strange New Worlds and as Jamis in the acclaimed film Dune and its upcoming sequel Dune: Part Two, he has a very powerful presence and commanding performance make her a standout in the cast.

Overall, the cast of this movie is a diverse and talented group of actors who bring their unique skills and experiences to the film, with such a strong ensemble, audiences can expect a lot of excitement and entertaining ride.

The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare is a movie that will describe a part of the history of World War II that many people unknown. Based on the book wit the the same of Damien Lewis’s and now a movie directed by director Guy Ritchi, it will be full of explosion, battles, humor and blood, also there is a huge excitement for see one more time in the big screen of the most beloved actor of the cinema industry which is Henry Cavill who take the lead role of the Sargent Gus March-Phillips, the person that is leading the group of crazy men to a suicide mission but that feel more excited than ever because are serving their country and obviously has green card to kill every Nazi they want. Really a movie with a lot of action as Guy Ritchi has accustomed his public. The audience will see and enjoy the explosion and blood in a action movie one more time.

In addition, the critics mention that the CGI, the action scenes and the creation of the monster were well done with a unique design. But as always, not everything is perfect. One thing that is mention is the lack of information in the movie such as what the monsters are, why they appeared?, where they are coming from?, what is the kind of relationship that Paul’s has with his sons?, why only they are in the house?, many questions that are unanswered, but despite those questions, the truth is that the movie has good critics and the audience seems to be really excited to see how the monsters look and how father and sons are going to live and survive in that world.

The movie Dogman was film in Newark, New Jersey and in the virtual production studio in Essone, France. The production or filming has no problems but must of the attention was on the director Lec Besson for his controversies and previous accusations that until today has had no repercussion in the filmmaker. Also is impressive the amount of dogs that were used in the filming of the movie making more realistic the scene and also complicated. Dogman is a movie that will bring to the big screen director Lec Besson with a hard story and great performances.

Despite all the accusation that director Lec Besson has face during the past years is incredible to see a movie directed by him again, Besson is a director that has memorable movies such as The Fifth Element and Leon: The Professional, two movies that has gained him acclaimed and also has positioned him one of the greatest French filmmaker, for that reason now with Dogman, the director is giving action, traumas, love for dogs, a story that audience is going to love for the dogs and the plot or is going to hate probably because will make no sense for them, no matter what it seems that the story is cruel with action scenes and with dogs running all over the city just to satisfy his master. Hope it is a good story and that audience can enjoy the performances, the direction and obviously the dogs.

Key Moments in Dan Wheldon’s Career

The documentary not only describe Dan Wheldon’s carrer, determination, passion and dedication for the sport, it describe the rise of this young pilot from England and his key moments on the sport like wining Indianapolis 500 in 2011, all the numerous challenges to win that race including a last lap pass that is probably still remembered as one of the most exciting ones of his career also lets not forget his previous win at Indianapolis 500 in 2005, this was a very significant victory since he was the first British driver to win the race since 1966.

Safety Concerns in Motorsports Addressed

If we look into motorsports safety now days its probably a puzzle that we have not figure out at 100% yet considering that every three of five years happen certain that no one though it would be possible, very recent the fire on Formula E, Valencia 2023 or the Formula 1 Romain Grosjean accident in 2020 where his fire caught on fire after he crash. I would only think that there were similar safety concerns during the times of Dan Wheldon from track design, protective gear for the drivers, the cars structure and this for sure is a part that the documentary will be touching on, I have only seen Indianapolis 500 a few times since I mostly follow Formula 1 but I have to say the risk is the same, doesn’t matter if you are going at 200 kmph or 300 kmph the result will be the same, very close to death if not, all drivers know this and they still put on their gear and get into their cars.

Director Hannah Storm

The director in charge for this documentary is the well known sports broadcaster and filmmaker Hannah Storm, Hannah has previous work with ESPN, NBC Sports and ABC Sports just to mention a few, she has also directed other documentaries including Unmatched, Rowdy and Swoopes so there is plenty of experience going into the recollection of critical data and putting it all together, so far this documentary has been shown on two Film Festivals, Tribeca Film Festival and Heartland International Film Festival with great feedback and results from what I have found online.

Documentary Cast

During the documentary features interviews with several people who knew Dan Wheldon, including his family, wife, friends and drivers who share the track with him several times, featured in the documentary include Dan Wheldon’s wife, Susie Wheldon, his sons, Sebastian and Oliver Wheldon, and his fellow drivers, including Dario Franchitti, Tony Kanaan, and Scott Dixon.. From the trailer we can see that it also covers footage of several of the races he was part of, probably from his early beginnings and some of his interviews too.

As mention I’m not into Indy but do love all kind of motorsport so once I saw the trailer I had too look first for the accident one that you only think happen on Lightning McQueen movies where cars where literally flying over 100 meters involving almost half, 14 cars; during the crash with more than three on fire from what I was able to catch during the accident footage, dissecting this scene will be very interesting as I’m sure there will be commentary about the flaws on the cars. There is also the part of how his two sons are now into motorsports starting on Karting and moving forward probably to other divisions of racing trying to achieve what their father did during his career on racing. Documentaries in my opinion are one of the hardest type of film to nail, first you need a great story and then gather all the data to build up the documentary and trying not to make it sound boring, need all this people who are not shy or feel weird about been in front of the camera and keep the viewers interested.
