Duel Of Fists 3/5 David Chiang heads out to Thailand in search of his long lost brother Ti Lung,who it turns out is a up and coming Thai boxer being hassled by the great and dodgy Chen Sing. A change of pace for a Shaw movie,pretty decent. Angry Guest 3/5 Sequel finds Chen Sing out for revenge agai...

Re: Sonny Chiba Mega Review Thread

With the Weinstein and now Uma Thurman controversy i think the current BD is the best we are going to get on the format for the forseeable.

Re: What general film/series have you just seen.. marks out of 5

Invasion Of The Body Snatchers (1978) 3/5 Solid remake of the 50's classic helped by a good cast led by Donald Sutherland and some knowing cameos from the original. Christine 2.5/5 John Carpenter adaption of the Stephen King novel starts well but flaws become evident-Keith Gordon's transformation f...

[quote="Markgway"]

Probably because of the staggered multi-platform distribution. [quote]


I think the opening took about 1min 40 secs from start to finish while it scrolled through the various companies involved in this one. Many fingers in pies here :)

The Foreigner 3.5/5 A nice surprise-a good Jackie Chan film. Solid action thriller mostly lives up to the hype generated by it's trailer and Pierce Brosnan is an excellent counterpart to Chan's search for vengeance character.For anyone bothered by these things the USA blu ray is surprisingly Region...

Unusually for a Universal title this is Region A locked . It's coming out in Germany next month but doubt there will be english subs for the scenes at Chan's restaurant with his member of staff.

Dunkirk 2.5/5 Well made but strangely cold war drama from Christopher Nolan. Hard to care for any of the characters as we don't get to know them. Blade Runner 2049 2.5/5 Well received sequel didn't resonate with me much. Looks nice but very long and it probably doesn't help that i'm not keen on Rya...

The Anonymous Heroes 3/5 An imdb user description nails this Shaw Brothers effort- a hybrid of Butch & Sundance and The Wild Bunch. David Chiang & Ti Lung play two scoundrels who are enlisted to steal 3000 rifles from the opposing Army. Quite light hearted for a lot of it's run time, i enjo...

The Flying Guillotine 3/5 Chen-Kuan-Tai is part of the emperor's squad of guillotine assassins who realises that they are actually the bad guys so escapes, the rest of the movie has him being hunted down by the emperor's squad. Plenty of guillotine action, not loaded with martial arts but a solid S...

Missing In Action 3/5 Chuck conquers Vietnam in this hokey but fun jingoistic actioner. Missing In Action 2:The Beginning 3/5 Prequel showing Chuck's adventures in a POW camp. Again, jingoistic but fun. Braddock:Missing In Action 3 3.5/5 Best of the series totally ignores the continuity of the firs...

Drunken Master 3.5/5 Seminal Jackie Chan flick is very entertaining but suffers from overlength and actually drags in places. As said above, the eureka disc is very nice, i hope they release SITES, the superior film imo. Dance Of The Drunk Mantis 3/5 Follow up to Drunken Master sees Sam Seed return...

Kung Fu Tiger Named Drunk Cat 2/5 Late 70's kung fu actioner is,for a change set in modern times. The comedy falls very flat but the fighting is plentiful if uninspired, the best of which is one near the end set on railway tracks. An early starring role for John Cheung, with Simon Yuen also appeari...

Going In Style (2017) 2/5 An identkit example of how to make a bland, by the numbers gentle "comedy" vehicle starring 3 ageing stars. Very inoffensive but i'm not sure who the target audience is here. Michael Caine,Morgan Freeman & Alan Arkin play three friends who's pensions are take...

Fist Of Unicorn 1.5/5 It takes a special kind of talent to make such a lousy kung fu flick with a cast to die for that this one has. Bruce Lee's mate Unicorn Chan is handed a shot at a starring role playing a wanderer who befriends a young boy and his mother and before long goes up against the loca...
