Film review: ‘Bastille Day’ ★★

British filmmaker James Watkins has labelled his latest big screen effort a fun, Friday night cinematic ride. Aspiring to Walter Hill’s 1982 unorthodox buddy movie 48 Hrs., which starred Nick Nolte and a baby-faced Eddie Murphy as cop and con respectively, Bastille Day represents a marked change in direction after acclaimed horror-chillers Eden Lake and The Woman in Black.

Bastille Day bangs, crashes and wallops its way into UK cinemas on 22nd April – visit CineVue here to read the full review.
