The Walking Dead Box Set

If you’re an Aussie fan of The Walking Dead, then you will be on the verge of nirvana because two big things are about to happen in your world.

Not only are we only a few weeks away from Season 7 hitting the TV screens, answering the big question who exactly did Negan kill in that finale, but you have also Season Six becoming available on DVD/Blu-Ray/On-Demand on 21st September through eOne Entertainment.

Well we thought we would bring you this interview with Norman Reedus (the rough and tough Daryl Dixon) and Steven Yeun (Glenn Rhee).

With a hectic schedule away from the set of The Walking Dead, it seems only fitting that the best place to grab an interview with two of the show’s biggest stars is at a convention. Luckily that also meant Reedus and Yeun were in great moods after being presented to their fans and only too happy to talk.

So first of all, what are convention fans like when they run into stars from their favourite show? “They just freak out,” laughs Yuen. “They ask what’s going to happen next. I mean, they’re just [really] into the show. Like, I’m into the show. Sometimes I’ll go to the set, and I’ll watch things that I’m not in being filmed, ’cause I’m just so excited to watch them do it.”

Both men are also in unison when asked what makes the show so damn popular. “It comes down to the writing. It starts with what’s on the page, I think.” says Yuen. “Yeah I think it’s the writing,” nods Reedus. “I think it’s the writing and commitment to the stories that we’re telling. Nobody on the show gives less than 110 percent, ever. Ever.” Yeun adds, “And that goes to crew. That goes to cast. That goes to post.”

Staying on the top of the writing of the show, Reedus admits he doesn’t know how the creative team behind The Walking Dead do it so well. “You know, I’ve directed music videos, short films, I’ve edited them… it’s nothing like this show, though. This is such a juggernaut of — there are so many people that I can’t figure out how they do the dialogue so well, you know what I mean? But as far as my character and storyline, Scott’s always been collaborative. It’s always been a team.”

“There’s some times when I’m like, ‘No, I don’t get that. What does that mean?’, and he’s like, ‘No, no, this doesn’t mean anything, it’s just –‘ And I go, ‘Oh, oh, that’s so good!’ The talks we have at the beginning of the year especially, sort of the midpoint, really do help shape what we’re doing. I mean, Daryl, especially, is not a character in the books. And he was this little bit of this enigma. Jumping into it, I think he’s always been one of the most challenging characters because he’s such a guarded character. So how much do we show of him, and show off who he really is? And who he really is has been changing the whole time, too. It’s been exciting that as he’s been showing more of himself, that we’ve been able to show those changes involved.”

Touching on how deep Daryl is as a character brings the topic around to the fact that while the writers of the show have introduced a number of love interests for him along the way, he has never seemed to act on it. Does Reedus feel that fans or the show’s writers put pressure on for something to happen?

“The writers wouldn’t be pressuring.  They would just pull the trigger,” laughs Yuen. “Fan-wise you watch these two groups battle each other, like the Bethels and the Carols,” explains Reedus. “But the amount of fan art that I get off me and Rick making out is… it’s like, ‘what is this?’, you know? Like, we should do a show, a proper art show of the two of us in the bathtub together – I mean, it’s insane. But, the thing is, are they looking for me to have a committed relationship with these people, just to bone them? Like, what am I doing? And the truth is, I don’t know that Daryl is ready to do any of that.”

“And, you know, it’s almost the same as, ‘Are you ever gonna cut your hair on the show?’  Why the hell would I cut my hair? ‘Are you ever gonna take a bath?’ Well, I’m just gonna get dirty again. You know what I’m saying? They go to war, and sometimes I feel bad for whoever. Because what’ll happen is those girls that – that other __ in the Daryl whatever’s – will get, sometimes, bashed.  And I’m like, “That’s bullshit.  She doesn’t deserve that. I remember when Carol got real badass – I saw this one, and it was like, ‘She doesn’t even need Daryl anymore.  She can take care of herself.  Daryl’s just a big man-child.’ These people go nuts. It could go on and on and on. But do I feel pressured? Nope.”

Yuen laughs and adds, “And I’d say, the characters on all — I mean, this is a guy who’s pretty damn guarded, and the fact that he now has family – he really does have a family with these people. He’s on a journey.”

Reedus nods and says, “It might not be the most obvious timeline to other people in their life, but Daryl has had a pretty wild life, pretty weird life.”

When touching on the deepness of the characters in The Walking Dead, the talk turns to whether or not ‘specialists’ are brought in to talk to the writers and the actors on how characters might react to the very dramatic circumstances they often find themselves on the show. “Season Three was a really rough season for most of us,” explains Yuen.

“Especially for Carl,” adds Reedus. “I remember Steven was talking about how emotionally distraught he was after the whole scene with the governor, with him, with Glenn and Maggie. It is hard for all of us. And after Carl killed his mom, just these scenes that you don’t remember much, they impact us, as people, so much. We’ve all been through really, really tough places, because of this show.”

Yeun nods and adds, “I’ve said this a few times – you know, there’s a lot of horror, there’s a lot of survival war, there’s a lot of really intense emotional things that happen on this show. And this show has gone on for six years.”

Of course, the guys couldn’t give away any spoilers but when asked about where the characters will head in the new season Yuen quickly answers, “Actually, all of these characters, you generally know where they started, ’cause we’re starting fairly close to where we ended. They’re gonna be very, very far away from that by the end of the season.  So, you guys could easily do the math on that. I’m just saying, if you know where they start, they’re not going to be emotionally in the same place by the end of the season.  None of these folks.”

So what can they tell us about this Team Rick/Team Morgan divide that seems to be happening? Is that a real thing or just in the fan’s minds? “Well, I will neither confirm nor deny,” laughs Reedus, “but I will say that there are conflicts within this group. I don’t know if Lennie was talking about it at this table or another table, but Lennie is – I mean, what did he say to Daryl? ‘All life is precious.’”

“He shows up at Alexandria, right after Rick has shot Amanda in the face. There seems to be a different approach coming head-to-head. And there’s other characters we know that have pretty strong opinions about all this. So, even if it’s not absolutely exactly Team Morgan and Team Rick, there are conflicts that we’re going to see.”

If you want to see whether Team Rick or Team Morgan come to the fore, make sure you grab your copy of The Walking Dead Season 6 from eOne Entertainment.

The Walking Dead Box Set

With Season 6 of The Walking Dead being released on home entertainment this week (thanks to our good friends at eOne Entertainment) and Season 7 about to hit television screens next month we decided that now would be a good time to go back and recap the main things that have happened in each season… and keep tuned to the Heavy website because we have some Australian exclusive The Walking Dead content coming up over the next couple of weeks.

 

Season 1

Our trusty hero Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln), the best television cop since Sgt Frank Gilroy, wakes up after being in a coma in hospital. He quickly discovers that a virus has spread right across America and the result are hordes of zombies (called ‘walkers’ by Rick) that will either bite you and turn you or just eat you… depends on how quick you are at getting away.

After meeting up with Morgan Jones (Lennie James) who were refer to as that dude from Jericho in our household Rick heads off to Atlanta, which is rumoured to have been quarantined by the Centers For Disease Control And Prevention, in search of his wife Lori (Sarah Wayne Callies) and son, Carl (Chandler Riggs).

Meanwhile, Lori has started a relationship with Rick’s best friend and Police partner Shane Walsh (Jon Bernthal) as she believes that Rick is dead. Her, Shane and Carl are staying with a group, including Andrea (Laurie Holden), Dale (Jeffrey DeMunn), Glenn (Steven Yuen), Daryl (Norman Reedus), Carol (Melissa McBride) and Merle (Michael Rooker) just out of Atlanta.

Rick meets up with the group and learns that Atlanta is over-run with workers. After a daring escape that sees Rick handcuff Merle to a roof in Atlanta the group head for the CFDSAP where Dr. Edwin Jenner (Noah Emmerich) tells that the outbreak cannot be contained and that technically everybody is now infected… that just have to die for it to take over. He kills himself and blows up the centre but our group of trusty heroes manage to escape.

 

Season 2

The group leave Atlanta and head for Fort Benning. But after Carl is accidentally shot they head to the farm of Hershel Greene (Scott Wilson) and his family which includes Beth (Emily Kinney) and Maggie (Lauren Cohan). Hershel patches up Carl (despite being a vet not a doctor) and the group decide to try and stay with the Greenes, but not everything runs smoothly. Rick and Hershel clash on a number of things (the biggest being Hershel’s refusal to kill walkers – he believes he can cure them), Rick loses trust in both Shane and Lori after he discovers their relationship while Daryl sinks into depression and Carol struggles to deal with the loss of her daughter. Then there is the sad death of Daryl.  In fact the only person who seems to be enjoying his time at the Greenes is Glen who starts a relationship with Maggie.

Then on one fateful night Rick and Shane come to blows, the result being the death of Shane, while Shane actions lead to the ‘walkers’ attacking the farm. The group flee but in doing so leave Andrea behind, but she is rescued by a mysterious figure who keeps walkers on a chain.

 

Season 3

Eight months after the night of horror at the Greenes Rick and his group stumble across an abandoned prison. After clearing the complex of ‘walkers’ they make themselves at home but tragedy strikes pretty much straight away. First Hershel’s foot has to be amputated after a walker bite while Lori dies during child-birth and has to be shot by her own son, Carl, before she can turn. Her death then starts Rick on a steady journey of mental illness as he starts seeing her ghost everywhere.

Meanwhile Andrea and her new found friend, the modern-day warrior Michonne (Danai Gurira) are taken captive by Merle and delivered to a settlement run by the ego-driven The Governor (David Morrissey). After learning about the group at the prison The Governor decides they are a threat and after he takes Glen and Maggie captive a series of attacks between the two fractions start.

After The Governor continues to de-stabilise his behaviour becomes some erratic that he ends up torturing Andrea, something that results in her killing herself, and launching another attack on the prison. With Rick’s group coming out triumphant The Governor and his commanders are sent packing while the rest of his group are welcomed into the prison.

 

Season 4

The two groups seem to be happily co-inhabiting at the prison but the joy is short lived when a flu epidemic sweeps through the complex. Many die and Carol becomes exiled after killing some of the infected.

The Governor then returns and manages to take Michonne and Hershel captive and use them as leverage against Rick. Another battle erupts, one that claims The Governor and Hershel’s lives but not before the prison is badly damaged allowing it to become once again over-run with walkers.

As Rick’s group flees the prison they go in all different directions but all find themselves heading to Terminus, a railway depot that is said to offer safety and shelter for victims. While various members of the group meet Glen and Tara (Alanna Masterson) run into Abraham (Michael Cludlitz) and Rosita (Christian Serratos) who are helping a ‘supposed’ gifted scientist, Eugene (Josh McDermitt), get to Washington where he believes he can cure the walker epidemic.

Eventually the entire group arrive at Terminus and soon learn that the people there are not what they are expected and find themselves being taken captive.

 

Season 5

While the group are being held captive at Terminus they learn that they are about to become food for the inhabitants there. Luckily Carol and Tyrese (Chad L. Coleman) launch an attack on Terminus and the group are rescued.

After that they stumble across a Church run by Father Gabriel Stokes (Seth Gilliam) and while most stay there Carol and Daryl leave in search of Beth who they believe has been kidnapped by instead has been taken to a hospital that is run by corrupt Police Officers. While trying to rescue her the group are shattered when Beth is killed.

Once again devastated the group travel and look for a new home and in doing so are found by Aaron (Ross Marquand) who takes them to the fortified community of Alexandria which is run by a former Senator, Deanna Monroe (Tovah Feldshuh).

Rick and the group find it difficult to settle into Alexandria though. Rick believes the community is not protected enough and schemes with Carol and Daryl to go against Deanna. Meanwhile Glen finds himself at war with one of the locals after the death of a young man. Everything comes to ahead when Rick tries to protect Jessie Anderson (Alexandra Breckenridge) from her violent husband. After being ‘arrested’ her husband kills Deanna’s husband and Rick is ordered to kill him just as Morgan turns up.

 

Whew…so that should bring you up to date with what has happened in the first five seasons of The Walking Dead now make sure you check back over the next couple of days because we’re going to behind the scenes of Season Six in a way that you have never seen before.

Triple 9

Summary: When young Detective Chris Allen (Casey Affleck) is moved into a tough squad of the Atlanta Police Department he is unaware that his new partner, Marcus Belmont (Anthony Mackie), is corrupt and working with a group of criminals including Gabe Welch (Aaron Paul), Michael Atwood (Chiwetel Ejiofor), Russell Welch (Norman Reedus) and another corrupt officer, Franco Rodriguez (Clifton Collins Jnr.).

With the group running a series of robberies for Russian Mafia boss Irina Vlaslov (Kate Winslet) they find themselves stretched to the limit and it is decided that the only way to pull off the hardest of the robberies is to have Triple 9 (Police officer down) call put across the airwaves.

OUR TRIPLE 9 REVIEWS & RATINGS:

 

David Griffiths:

Yes it might be a year when we are getting films like Batman vs Superman and of course another Captain America film but one of the films I was most excited to see this year was Triple 9. Triple 9 looked like it would be interesting watch, not only did it have a stellar cast involved including two of my favourites Woody Harrelson and Kate Winslet (who never normally chooses a bad script) but was also directed by John Hillcoat whose filmography contains films like The Proposition, The Road and Lawless all films that have revealed that he is gritty director certainly worth watching the work of. Throw in a healthy dose of Police corruption and this was well and truly on the road to becoming one of my fave films of the year. That was until I sat down and watched it.

To be honest Triple 9 isn’t a bad film, in fact many elements of the film do in fact work. Hillcoat is at his normal gritty best with some realistic action sequences in which a normal cops and robbers chase across Atlanta becomes something of violent beauty, while some of the urban shoot-outs will have the audience on the edge of their seat. The problem with Triple 9 though is that it tries to do too much and is sadly let down by a script that needed just a few more re-writes.

It’s not surprising to learn that Triple 9’s screenwriter Matt Cook is a first time feature writer. The idea behind Triple 9 is sound but still the screenplay itself has some very big holes. First of all there is way too much happening and too many of the characters are too similar, so similar in fact that some of the critics at the Melbourne media screening were turning to each other and asking ‘who the hell was?’ after the screening… never a good sign.

As a screenwriter Cook seems to created quite a good world with a massive amount of back story that just doesn’t come through during the film. Just how did Michael start having a relationship with Elena, what ended etc are just never fully explained. Then there are huge plotholes like if all the team need is for a Triple 9 call to go over the airwaves do they really need to shoot a cop or can they just ‘pretend’ a cop has been shot? A seasoned screenwriter would have known to have ironed out things like that during the writing process but sadly that is something that Cook has overlooked. Hillcoat does all he can to make the screenplay watchable but just falls short of making this a decent film.

Likewise the weak screenplay also leaves some of the cast floundering as well. Luckily Casey Affleck and Kate Winslet are there to save things. Affleck does a more than admirable job playing the fresh faced Chris, but it is Winslet that really excels herself. Casting Winslet as a Russian Mafia boss was a risky pick. A pick so risky that if she had failed she could have been looking at finding herself in Golden Razzie territory, luckily though she is up to the task and Winslet delivers another fine performance… this time showing that she can pretty much handle anything that is thrown at her.

Also up to the task is Harrelson who seems to borrow a little bit from his role that he had in Rampart. Those suffering though are the likes of Antony Mackie, Aaron Paul and Chiwetel Ejiofor who in roles where they are severely hampered by the fact that their characters are dangerously clichéd. Then there are poor Gal Gadot, Teresa Palmer and Michelle Ang whose characters just seem to go missing for huge chunks of the film.

There is no doubt that with a little bit more work on the screenplay Triple 9 could have been a brilliant film. The poor screenplay unfortunately though leaves the audience asking too many questions and dumps this film right in the middle of a heap of other average films. While it may appeal to fans of The Shield don’t expect the writing of Triple 9 to ever lift it to anything near as brilliant.

Greg King:

Australian director John Hillcoat makes visceral, violent, dark and aggressively masculine thrillers, ranging from the bleak prison drama Ghosts… Of The Civil Dead through to the gritty outback western The Proposition, the apocalyptic journey into a heart of darkness with The Road or the prohibition era crime drama Lawless. And he seems to be able to attract A-list actors to work with him. Hillcoat’s latest film is another gritty and morally murky crime drama that is not for the squeamish or faint hearted. Triple 9 features a strong cast, some strong action sequences and a high body count. But it is also something of a disappointment given his body of work.

Written by first time writer Matt Cook, Triple 9 is set on the mean streets of Atlanta, Georgia, a lawless city full of crime and corruption where the gang and gun culture seems out of control. But the script itself raises too many questions and there are some gaping holes in the plot. Some of the dialogue is cliched, and the characterisation underdone.

When the film opens a carefully planned bank robbery is in progress. The thieves rob some money but their prime interest lies with a safety deposit box that holds some important documents vital to a Russian gangster incarcerated in a Siberian gulag. The thieves turn out to be a couple of former special forces operatives and a couple of corrupt cops. They have been blackmailed by the powerful Irina Vaslov (Kate Winslet, cast against type), the wife of the Russian gangster, into working for the Kosher Nostra, a criminal gang of Russian Jews. But Irina welshes on paying them, instead she forces them to break into a Homeland Security safe house, an even more secure location, to steal further incriminating evidence. The thieves plan to distract the police by killing honest cop Chris Allen (Casey Affleck).

On the trail of the daring brazen thieves is veteran detective Jeffrey Allen (Woody Harrelson), who happens to be Chris’s cousin.

The title comes from the police code for “Officer Down,” a code that sees police officers everywhere stop what they are doing and respond immediately to the distress signal. The film itself is full of some violent action, double crosses and revenge. But this contemporary heist thriller is also a morally empty film, and its seedy air of corruption and desperation reminds audiences of Training Day and the films of Sidney Lumet (Serpico, Dog Day Afternoon, etc).

Hillcoat certainly directs with energy and he maintains a fast pace throughout. He effectively ramps up the action with a superb urban shootout that imitates Michael Mann’s superb Heat, and an exciting adrenaline charged car chase on the city’s freeway.

Belgian cinematographer Nicholas Karakatsanis (the moody crime drama The Drop, etc) gives the film a grimy authenticity as he has shot the film largely using a restless handheld cameras to take us into the action. This is particularly effective in a couple of tense scenes. He has also shot in muted colours, lots of reds and blacks that is meant to intensify the mood, but the colour scheme also sometimes renders it hard to discern what is happening. The film has also been edited in that rapid, kinetic style by Dylan Tichenor (who has worked with the likes of Paul Thomas Anderson and Wes Anderson) which sometimes renders the action incomprehensible. And too many of the characters seems too similar and we never really get a handle on them and what makes them tick.

Strong performances from Affleck, Winslet and Harrelson bolster the film. Winslet steps into a role originally intended for Cate Blanchett (who wisely said “nyet”), but she adopts a convincing Russian accent and a cool icy demeanour. Affleck delivers one of his best perfomances yet as the fresh faced cop unaware of the corruption surrounding him. Harrelson is also good as the seedy and jaded veteran cop with an addiction problem, a role that has some similarities to his recent work in True Detective and the gritty drama Rampart.

Unfortunately, talented players like Anthony Mackie, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Clifton Collins jr, Breaking Bad‘s Aaron Paul and The Walking Dead‘s Norman Reedus find themselves stuck with cliched, one-dimensional characters ands do not leave much of an impression.

With its convoluted plotting and cliched characters, Triple 9 is unfortunately just another police action thriller that doesn’t really offer anything particualrly new or surprising.

John Noonan:

John Hillcoat has an impressive back catalogue to show off. All of them tapping into a vein of masculinity being tested. Whether it be Ray Winstone saving face in The Proposition, Viggo Mortensen going above and beyond fatherly duties in The Road, or literally every cell mate in Ghosts… Of the Civil Dead. Based on a screenplay by Matt Cook, Triple 9 lets Hillcoat return to these themes and, well, triple them. Not always to great effect.

In Atlanta, Georgia, three professional criminals (Chiwetel Ejiofor, Norman Reedus and Aaron Paul)  join up with two corrupt lawmen (Anthony Mackie and Clifton Collins Jnr) to rob a bank at the behest of a Russian mob wife (Kate Winslet). She stiffs the group on their reward, politely and violently asking them do one last robbery for the sake of her incarnated husband.

Each of the man has a lot to lose, financially and personally, if they don’t steam ahead. Ejiofor, for example, will lose custody rights to the kid he’s fathered with Winslet’s sister. So, realizing that the robbery is impossible unless they come up with a big enough distraction, the decision is made to kill a cop on the day. With Atlanta’s police searching for a cop killer, they should have plenty of time to get in and out unnoticed. Enter Casey Affleck as Mackie’s new partner, who he clearly doesn’t care for.

Triple 9 is bolshy, angry and suffers from excess in all departments. With such a pedigree of cast on display, I haven’t even mentioned Woody Harrelson yet, it’s understandable the film wants to get plenty of bang for its buck.

This should be an ensemble piece, but it feels like Triple 9 can’t decide who its focus is. Is it Affleck stumbling around naively? Is it Mackie wrestling with his subconscious? Perhaps it’s Ejiofor battling to see his son. Triple 9 wants it to be all of them. And that’s fine, but it doesn’t achieve its goals.

Meanwhile, Hillcoat’s direction paints a suitably sweaty, gritty world lit in blue and red. At it’s best, it’s a reminder of Ghosts… of the Civil Dead. At it’s worst it’s Heat as directed by Michael Bay, where men are real chest beating men and women have minimal dialogue or clothing. That’s not an exaggeration as Triple 9 ensures that anyone remotely female is saved for background or wifely duties. It’s only really Winslet that manages to rise above the heap and she does so with an outrageous accent.

There is still a lot to enjoy here, with some breathtaking set pieces that suggest Hillcoat could be eyeing up an action movies as his next gig. But  this is then clouded by overripe dialogue, undercooked characterisation and so much backstabbing it makes Wild Things blush. Please understand, this isn’t a bad film. It’s perfectly serviceable, but it is not what we expect from Hillcoat, who has proven in the past he can play with restraint. Enjoyable, but a bit of a misstep.

Sam Gironda:

Triple 9, directed by John Hillcoat and containing a decent cast consisting of Kate Winslet, Aaron Paul, Norman Reedus, Casey Affleck, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Anthony Mackie, Woody Harrelson and many more. Personally I am not one who is into all the Police and crime films but after seeing Triple 9 I must say that is a film that is definitely worth watching. The film opens with a bang consisting of a bank robbery and from that point on the film is non-stop action. There aren’t any big defying scenes of the film that consist of car chases and explosions but the film is very confronting when it comes to the criminal side of things. The film has a lot of graphic scenes which really gives the film a very dark feel to it. Some of the things I liked about the film was the story and the acting. The story itself had many twists and turns that you don’t see coming and it adds so much to the film when you see something you don’t believe would happen. The acting in the film from all the actors was incredible. The pure emotion that was seen on screen was great to me.
If your a fan of the Police and crime films this is a film that you really should go see.
