Jet Li and Jason Statham in the same movie, who could want more than that? I could. This movie is fantastic in its action sequences. This movie is fun to watch and the mysteries within are a joy to unravel. However it fails to muster up in a believable or for that matter easily followed plot line. It is fun however and that is just what an action movie should be. The plot is fairly simple Agent Crawford (Statham) is after rogue assassin (Jet Li) for the death of his partner. Ironically enough the assassin’s is named Rogue. Is this a show of creative genius or just a lack of originality on the writers’ part? It does not matter, for this movie is jam packed with kick ass action sequences for one hour and thirty-nine minutes. This movie is good; it’s just not great. It is nothing to write home about or is it a movie to add to your permanent collection. I am not even sure if it’s worth renting. There are so many other films out there that are better. This one is no Miss America. Heck, it is not even a Miss Iowa. It did entertain me however on this warm Autumn morning and it is sure to do the same for you. Grade B-

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
