Movie Reviews

Not An Action Movie
guy | Pfafftown, NC | 07/22/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)

"The front cover said 'nominated for best action choreography' but there was no action to choregraph! There was one five minute action scene and can hardly be considered a shootout unlike what one reviewer said. There was good drama pertaining to hard drug use, but it's hard to fully appreciate the acting in a foreign movie because of the language. I buy these Hong Kong movies, especially Dragon Dynasty releases, for the action, so I was disappointed.

I've been spoiled by Hard Boiled, The Killer, A Better Tomorrow I and II, Tragic Hero, Fist of Legend, and others. Check those out for some action."
Nightmare existence
John D. Aldridge | Waimanalo, Hawaii | 07/09/2009
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is a deep look into the insidious perversion of drugs, from the gangsters who supply them, to the cops who work to catch them, and to the lowest rung of the ladder, the users. At first I was let down expecting another HK action extravaganza, but eventually got drawn into the story. The nightmare seems more real when it isn't varnished over with fights, chases and shootouts. Recommended."
