• Project Wolf Hunting

    Project Wolf Hunting

    ★★★½

    A bunch of dangerous convicts are getting transported from the Philippines to South Korea on a cargo ship. But when they try to escape and eventually take control of the ship, they and the few surviving cops discover a much more lethal threat hidden on the ship in this ultra violent, action packed gorefest from the always reliable South Korean movie industry.
    If you have already noticed reading other reviews this is as gory and bloody as a movie can…

  • The Price We Pay

    The Price We Pay

    ★★

    Pretty boring From Dusk Till Down meets Texas Chainsaw Massacre inspired film directed by Ryuhei Kitamura which sounds good as a concept only in reality it's one of the most forgettable genre movies I've seen in a while.
    That is until the last 10 minutes or so where Ryuhei Kitamura remembers he is Ryuhei Kitamura and we get some of his trademark insanity unfold on the screen but that is still not enough to save this movie from mediocrity.
    If you're not a fan of the director I recommend you skip this one.

  • The Prey

    The Prey

    ★★★★

    An effective action crime thriller hybrid in the vein of A bout portant, Nuit Blanche or Ne le dis à personne with an easy to root for lead played by French director/actor Albert Dupontel as a convict who has to escape jail and race against time and the police in order to save his family from a serial killer who used to be his cell mate.
    Just like other French movies in this genre it has a bullet pace and…

  • Killers

    Killers

    ★★★

    Some of the worst and most cringeworthy dialogue you could ever hear, it almost made the film unwatchable but I'm a visuals kind of guy and this movie has that mid 90s music video aesthetic that makes me have a hard on instantly. Besides it has a surreal vibe and an unexpected twist that added to my overall feelings towards it by the time I was finished with it.
    It ends on a high note with a close quarters shootout…

  • HELL DOGS

    HELL DOGS

    ★★★½

    Could've been so much better if it didn't have a good amount of obvious flaws. It's one of those movies where you have brilliant individual moments but the sum of its parts is an uneven and disjointed mess.
    But I still very much enjoyed this film, some good performances, a unique albeit a little on the nose style and quite a good amount of well done hard hitting action.

  • Superfights

    Superfights

    ★★★★

    Superfights? more like Superfun!
    Similarly to Bloodmoon this one manages to be an equally bizarre blend of cheap 90s dtv action aesthetic and Hong Kong choregraphed action. The acting here is porn level which adds more to the charm besides Superfights turns the energy up to eleven.
    within the first 15 minutes I could not stop myself from wondering why they didn't cast Loren Avedon for the lead in this because he wpuld have been perfect. The dude who plays…

  • Men from the Gutter

    Men from the Gutter

    ★★★★

    A group of thieves are planning to hit a money truck, an assassin is tracking down and killing gangsters related to a drug kingpin and two polar opposite cops are investigating both cases in this Shaw Bros produced Ngai Choi Lam directed crime flick.
    Starting off with the cons because I didn't think there were many of them and it all boils down to the convoluted and borderline incomprehensible plot, especially in the first 30 minutes, as we get introduced…

  • Accident Man: Hitman's Holiday

    Accident Man: Hitman's Holiday

    ★★★★

    The sequel to Accident Man is superior in almost every department, with the exception of the stripped down, paper thin storyline that's only serviceable as an excuse to throw Scott Adkins into various duels with multiple assassins hot on his tale but what it lacks in story and memorable characters it more than makes up for in action, mainly brutal hand to hand combat.
    it's very well made overall with cool camerawork, editing and music however it tones down the…

  • Carter

    Carter

    ★★★★

    Michael Bay just announced his retirement.

  • Limbo

    Limbo

    ★★★★½

    Story wise Limbo plays within a familiar territory when it comes to police investigation films about the hunt for a serial killer on the loose therefore the execution makes all the difference here and it ends up being a prime example of how a movie's visual aspect elevating it above its written material. After All Limbo shares a lot of similarities with Soi cheang's own Dog Eat Dog in terms of plot and in terms of how murky the morality…

  • White Elephant

    White Elephant

    ★★★½

    White Elephant is the latest addition to oldschool DTV action movie embassador Jesse V Johnson's resume and while it doesn't do anything to make it standout in this genre it still does what it does pretty damn well and overall JVJ delivers a no holds barred action fest featuring a cast of veteran actors in a story that follows a mob enforcer (Michael Rooker) who has a crisis of concious when he is ordered by his mob boss (Bruce Willis)…

  • Four Flies on Grey Velvet

    Four Flies on Grey Velvet

    ★★★★

    A drummer is stalked by some creep dressed in a black suit, a black hat and sunglasses. Soon he has enough of this shit and decides to confront his stalker only he ends up accidentally killing him while a plastic doll takes some photos of him while he was doing it. It's not long before he starts to get blackmailed but things aren't exactly as they seem because this is a Dario Argento film and we need some people to…
