Legendary Amazons

Legendary Amazons

| October 16, 2012

As the title aptly suggests, Legendary Amazons is a wonderful kung fu film that delivers a hell of a good time. The Jackie Chan produced film is a remake of the Shaw Brothers and director Chang Keng’s classic, The 14 Amazons, that is based off of the Chinese folk tale of the Yang Generals. The […]

The Courier

| October 9, 2012

I was drawn to this one by Jeffrey Dean Morgan, who I tend to enjoy when I see something with him in it.  He’s a wonderfully charming dramatic actor, having recently finished his first season of the Starz channel’s period hotel drama Magic City.  Unfortunately, Morgan is not an action star, and watching him stumble […]

Karate-Robo Zaborgar

Karate-Robo Zaborgar

| September 5, 2012

The cinematic curiosity that is writer/director Noboru Iguchi’s (The Machine Girl) 2011 film, Karate-Robo Zaborgar, serves as both a comedic send-up of the live action mecha dramas so popular in Japan in the 1970’s and a fairly faithful adaptation of 1974’s Denjin Zaborger, according to my cursory research into the series. Although it’s not uncommon […]

Battleground

Battleground

| August 28, 2012

Battleground (2012), coming to Blu-ray and DVD on August 28, 2012 from Well Go USA, is exactly what you’d cynically expect of a cross between Reservoir Dogs with First Blood: a flashy, dull mess of an actioner. The film follows a group of men fresh off a botched heist in Flint, Michigan who must lie […]

My Way

| July 31, 2012

Taegukgi: The Brotherhood of War was the first Kang Je-gyu film I saw and the second Korean film I ever purchased, the first being Park Chan-wook’s Oldboy, obviously. I was in absolute awe after seeing Kang’s take on the Korean War and felt that after seeing this and his first film Shiri, I felt the […]

Wind Blast

| July 3, 2012

Gao Qunshu’s Wind Blast is a perfect blend of the Honk Kong action genre and the American western genre, which makes for a nice piece of entertainment. A young man escapes to the Gobi Desert, after he murders an off duty police officer in Hong Kong. The hit was put out by a corporate big […]
