Amazon's Black Friday Sale Begins: See What's On Offer

Amazon's Black Friday Sale is finally here. Here are some of the best deals on now.
We've had our fingers poised over our keyboards long enough in anticipation of Amazon's Black Friday Sale, which went live at midnight and will last until 25 November.

Bullet To The Head Movie Review

It all starts with a hit. Sylvester Stallone is Jimmy Bobo, who, along with his partner Louis (Jon Seda) is tasked with popping off comically over-the-top drugged out ex-cop, Hank Greely. Between the pills, multiple lines of cocaine and the bottle of booze he keeps swigging from during the opening credits, it's a wonder why they don't just leave him to overdose on this own time. Nonetheless, they do their job, head out to meet their contact at a bar and find that they have become targets, themselves. Jimmy gets out; Louis is not so lucky.

Meanwhile, Taylor Kwon (Sung Kang of "Fast & Furious" fame) is Greely's ex-partner, and swoops, unwelcome, onto the scene in the investigation of his murder. Seeing Greely and Louis in the morgue side by side, he decides there must be a connection, so, armed with his Blackberry (an improbably reliable source of information that is always somehow relevant to whatever he's looking for at the time), he searches out Louis's known associate Jimmy and the fun begins.

A little chase scene ends in the two joining forces, and after that, the rest of the movie is just a string of action sequences stitched together by pithy one-liners, racist jokes directed at Kwon and lots of Stallone just being Stallone. And how very Stallone he is. From the sometimes-unintelligible mumble to the bulging, juiced-up muscles, Stallone seems out to prove that he's every bit the actor he was in the eighties. And succeeds. Wrinkles and leathery, slightly saggy skin aside, not much has changed.


As our hero and anti-hero work their way up the chain of corruption and power, they are dogged at every turn by menacing and taciturn Keegan (Jason Momoa, Khal Drogo in "Game of Thrones"), who proves himself a worthy villain. Christian Slater makes an appearance as a sleezy lawyer, who hosts a masquerade that seems to be part of the story only to get some full frontal nudity in there. Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Mr. Eko from "Lost") does his best to be intimidating as kingpin behind it all.

The whole thing climaxes in what ends up feeling more like an old-school platform video game than a high-stakes shootout. You almost expect everyone to suddenly turn pixelated and start jumping around to 8-bit music. Director Walter Hill ("Aliens") got lazy here, and the result is mostly predictable. Ultimately, it all ends in an axe fight, which is unexpected if not a little silly. Silly, it may be, but we're talking about a graphic novel turned Stallone movie called "Bullet to the Head". You get what you pay for with this one.

LG G5 Review In-Depth

Can LG take on the Galaxy S7 with a metal design, dual-cameras and an accessory slot? Here's our first LG G5 review, focusing on LG G5 design and build, LG G5 specs, LG G5 cameras and LG G5 software and apps.
Alongside the Galaxy S7, the LG G5 is one of the biggest phones (not literally) to launch in 2016 – and we're not just talking in the Android world. It's one of the heavyweights and LG will be looking to set the market alight with the G5's alternative and innovative modular design.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review: Hands-on

We had time with Oppo’s new RX17 Pro. It may be blue and purple but how different is it to the similar OnePlus 6T and is it worth your time?
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
Oppo has made a solid mid-range phone in the RX17 Pro. Build quality is premium, fast charging is industry-best fast and the display is of high quality.But the price is high at 599€ considering the OnePlus 6T with a better processor starts at £499/€529. And while functioning as it’s supposed to, ColorOS is still unrefined for the western market with far too many changes to Android to recommend over competitors.

BlackBerry KEYone Review

BlackBerry soliders on with a curious Android device that gets nearly everything right. It’s not for everyone though, in fact, it’s not really for anyone. But if you want a physical keyboard you will absolutely love it.
Should I Buy The BlackBerry KEYone?
But then, the KEYone is the best BlackBerry phone for years. It has (finally) successfully melded classic BlackBerry design with the necessary mix of Android and nostalgia. Importantly, the latter is only faint this time – this is a device for 2017, not 2007.If you love your iPhone or Samsung, you’ll hate the KEYone and won’t even consider buying it. But if you’ve made it to the end of this review, chances are you’re weighing up a buy. If you think you’ll love the BlackBerry KEYone, then I’m pretty certain you won’t be disappointed. You’re part of a minority, but finally BlackBerry has a phone for you that doesn’t force you to compromise.

Google Pixel Review

Not everyone wants a phone with a big screen, but most small-screen phones compromise on performance and cameras. Not so with Google’s latest flagship Android phone: Here’s our Google Pixel review.
Joining the ranks of the Pixel C and Chromebook Pixel are Google’s new Pixel phones. We’re reviewing the smaller 5in Pixel here, but you can read our separate Pixel XL review if you’re after a bigger phone.

Microsoft Surface Laptop 2 Review

Is there more to the Surface Laptop 2 than a lick of black paint? Find out in our full review.
Should I Buy The Microsoft Surface Laptop 2? The Surface Laptop 2 is a slightly odd one as it's not a huge upgrade on the original. That said, it comes in at the same price with a few upgrades and the new black colour.You get an 8th-gen Intel processor giving a nice performance boost as well as double the memory for the entry-level model. Battery life is a little down in our test but it's still a decent effort making this still one of the best laptop around.
