New to Netflix UK - 25/11/13

Only three new titles this week...

The Last Stand - After a violent drug lord escapes from prison and makes a run for the Mexican border, a local sheriff sees it as his duty to stop him. It's a real shame this film was so overlooked when it came out as it's a great come-back vehicle for Arnie, features a lot of the same wacky humour Jee-Woon brought to 'The Good, The Bad, The Weird' and it's just a hell of a lot of fun.

Twixt - A struggling writer investigating a local murder finds himself becoming more and more obsessed in the case to the point that his destiny becomes linked to it. It's an interesting film that takes some interesting turns but it's overtly ambitious and the end result can feel muddled and incoherent.

Once Upon a Time in Mexico - A hitman becomes tangled in a vast conspiracy involving the CIA, a rogue general and the Mexican president.The final act in the 'El Mariachi' trilogy, the film does an excellent job in providing you with the OTT action you seek but it's attempts at trying to deliver a 'serious' political thriller results in a generically dull plot.
