"Lots of things do go wrong but it goes right in the end. You know, it’s basically - it’s the sequel to ’Speed’ really, isn’t it?" Kevin said.

the best of 2013.

"Pound for pound, probably "12 Years a Slave," I would say, I think that’s been the one that’s made me - yeah. It has the honor of being a film that’s both very, very well told and important." Actor Martin Freeman said.

"I just recently saw the new Coen Brothers film which is about to come out, I thought it was very sad but absolutely beautiful, maybe their best film in my mind, it’s a movie about a failure, somebody who’s kind of, everything goes wrong in their life. And I thought, that’s so, so the opposite of what most movies are, I kind of loved that." Said Kevin.
