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

Tactical Force 2/5 Cheap DTV actioner with Steve Austin & Michael Jai White as SWAT team members locked in a battle with two rival armed to the teeth gangs. Not bad, i got my £1's worth from Poundland. I,Frankenstein 1.5/5 The opening minutes of another Frankie movie suggest an interesting spin...

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

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...

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

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...

Along Comes A Tiger 2.5/5 Decent kung fu actioner stars Wong Tao as a mute fighter known as Sacred Cloud,out for revenge on the Black Dragon gang led by Tommy Lee. Unusual (for these movies anyway) that the lead is mute. German dvd is a nice anamorphic print (by these films standards) with a choice...

On the bright side, it has an awesome pirated soundtrack of John Barry, Ennio Morricone and Pink Floyd. Plus, Mars gets to be the first Bruce Lee clone! it also has the immortal line in the dubbed version uttered by Kurata to the outclassed Unicorn in the midst of their fight "for a boxer you ...

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...

For A Few Dollars More 4.5/5 Almost perfect follow up to AFOD, the plus 2hr running time flies by. Eastwood & Van Cleef go up against Indio, played with relish by Gian Maria Volonte, returning from the first film. Superb Morricone score. The cheap german blu is excellent value. Trespass 3/5 Dec...

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

someone's watching that cheap Stallone box set ;)

Death Line 3/5

Odd but entertaining early 70's british horror, with an strange turn by Donald Pleasance as the copper on the case. Cannibals lurk in the London underground.Let down a little by a weak ending and a bland lead in David Ladd.

The Man With The Iron Fists: 2/5 Silly postmodern homage to classic martial arts and grindhouse movies. Lucy Liu plays a Chinese brothel madam, a kind of watered down version of her 'Kill Bill' character. A couple of classic old veterans (Chen Kuan Tai, Gordon Liu) make cameos. I didn't like the wa...

Tough Guy (Aka Kung Fu The Headcrusher) 3/5 It's a 70's basher and it stars Chen Sing- so you know what to expect,an entertainingly non stop 85 or so minutes. Chen plays an undercover cop who infiltrates a gang to gain evidence-cue mucho bashing. Good cast on show here including Henry yu Yung, Mars,...

All the big films come out on Blu but i think some of the lesser titles don't.

A Fistful Of Dollars 4.5/5 Opening entry in the classic Eastwood/Leone trilogy is a reworking of Yojimbo, a simple tale brilliantly told with style to spare.Shortest of the 3 at 99 minutes, this is lean and wastes no time getting to the point. The italian blu ray collectors edition i have looks grea...
