    May 17, 2014 very good Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
    I have been following this film for a while,largely becauce of the trailer.After watching the dvd I was not dissapointed and it was a visual feast.
    The action is good.The story flowed well and the actors played their roles well and the visuals were just awesome.
    Being familiar with Del Toro's past films I would say this could be his best yet.

    May 16, 2014 Not that special Customer Review Rated Bad 4 - 4 out of 10
    Im a huge fan of Donnie Yen and after watching the trailer of Special id I thought this another was gonna be another S.P.L,but unfortunatly it wasn't.

    My main problem with Special ID was Donnie Yen's character.It is repeatedly reiterated that Yen's character is stupid but can fight.We'er no longer in the 80's where an action hero can get by just on brawn.No one wants to root for a stupid character(unless it is done right) but that's how Yen's character was written.And to me this is a far cry from Yen's character in S.P.L.His character in this is just a silly caricature like something out of a kid's movie.Also worthy of note is the criminal underuse of Colin Chou-and nope no Donnie Yen vs Colin Chou.

    The action/fight scenes are o.k but not as good as S.P.L and Flash Point.Andy On and Jing Tian were good though.

    5.5/10.

  • January 12, 2013 Surprisingly good Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
    I thought I was going to dislike this but to my surprise I kinda enjoyed expendables 2.The film has mind-blowing action from start to finish.I thought Jean Claude van damme plays his bad-guy role pretty well and chuck Norris was every bit as good as the lone wolf.

    if you looking for character and story development stay well clear.but if your looking for mind blowing action then expendables 2 is the one.

    October 4, 2012 Raid it up Customer Review Rated Bad 10 - 10 out of 10
    To be honest I did not like the Raid when it first came out in cinemas.My thoughts of the film was that it was too fast for me to watch the action scenes.But when I bought the U.K version on dvd I loved every minute of it.The raid is one best action movies in a long time and I think it beats any other action film of 2012.The director,the star and martial arts choreographer of the film did a good job of bringing raw Indonesian martial arts to the screen.

    The u.k dvd version has a good Indonesian 5.1 audio but the English dub is pretty poor.It also has intresting commentary by the director and 30 minutes of extras.

    July 18, 2012 Boring Customer Review Rated Bad 2 - 2 out of 10
    Legendary Amazons was a boring film for me.I guess im not used to seeing women in battle.The end fight was not bad and there were few cool action shot.Eventhough I do like some battle films which are set in the past but with Legendary Amazons the characters and some parts of the story was just boring and not engaging.

    February 25, 2012 Pretty Funny Customer Review Rated Bad 6 - 6 out of 10
    I think Horrible Bosses is little bit better than 'The Hangover film.This film is not an unmissable one but it is pretty funny in most scenes.Kevin Spacey role as the horrible boss reminded me very much from the film 'Swimming with Sharks' (in there he plays a horrible boss aswell).

    I thought some of the laughs were pretty funny and some were just trying to be funny but it just fails.

    7/10

    February 21, 2012 Good but not perfect Customer Review Rated Bad 6 - 6 out of 10
    White Vengeance is a swordplay film that takes its time developing its story and characters.I thought it was an elaborate and often lavish epic film.In the heart of the frantic battle scenes lies a thriller that shows characters planning and trying to out wit,manipulate and defeat one another.
    The performances,battle sequences,editing and music were done very well.The cinematography was also done well and did remind me of similar shots in previous english epic films such as Braveheart and Lord of the rings trilogy.
    The part that I notice weak about the film was infact the female character.In my opinion there was no need to have a female lead.

    Other than that the rest of the film was fine.

    January 24, 2012 Pretty good Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
    Supernatural is one of those episodes that has similar trends with the X-Files.I remember I was a huge fan of X-Files and Supernatural may not be as good as the X-Files it still is a entertaining show.If you are in to ghosts and deamons then you're gonna love every minutes of it.

    For me I did like the show but at some point I did feel that the some episodes from season 1,2 and 3 were typically corny.To truly enjoy 100% of this show you should watch on tv where it was meant to be seen.

    November 23, 2011 Good but not excellent Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
    I kinda liked this movie.I dont think it is good as Exiled.The parts that I found disappointing about it was the lack of character development and the whole story was little bit slow-paced.But it is the performances the editing,the feel of story and its balletic action that makes it a good film.

    November 5, 2011 Moody mystery action drama Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
    Wu Xia is an action film but it's more like a action drama.It is not an all-out action that I saw in the trailer.There are three major fight sequences and I are well choreograpghed by Donnie Yen.It has deep characters and a good cast to boost.Donnie Yen is good in the lead role but it is Takeshi Kaneshiro who I thought stole the show.
    There were some bits of the plot that I found confusing,may be because it is a brain-tickling noir.And I would of liked to see an fight sequence between Donnie and the 72 Demons.

  • November 5, 2011 Goofy but entertaining Customer Review Rated Bad 6 - 6 out of 10
    This film is goofy but fun to watch.This was another one of Jackie's minor films,he's back in a smaller part,but he does have good fight scene with Richard Norton.I thought the ending was very good with lots of action.Some of the comedy is little bit out of date and some are still funny,and it's fun to see a young sexy Michell Yeoh in a small part.

    November 2, 2011 Good but not excellent Customer Review Rated Bad 6 - 6 out of 10
    Punished is very intresting revenge drama than most revenge films I'v seen.Though it may lack some action and a style of Jonnie To's own output it still makes a good revenge drama.The performance are good as well but it is Antony Wong's performance that gives this film the boost.

    Could have had more action though.

  • October 12, 2011 The 80's Reservoir Dogs Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
    City on fire is a fine Honk Kong action film about a cop who goes undercover to arrest a bunch of criminals.Chow Yun Fat plays his role with usual style and class and Danny Lee plays his criminal role good as well.Director Ringo Lam has made an explosive film that inspired Quentin Tarantino to make his own classic Reservoir Dogs.
    Good story,good acting and good action.

  • October 5, 2011 Average Customer Review Rated Bad 6 - 6 out of 10
    Tiger Cage 2 is only a name to the previous Tiger Cage.If you can look past the mish-mash story line of the love triangle,quirky comedy and just focus on the action then this would entertain the martial arts fans. Despite having Cynthia Khan and Carol Cheng in this film I felt that both actresses were heavily underused and their roles were minimal for their stature.

    But the action really does and I was dissapointed.

    September 18, 2011 Good prequal film Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
    I was not disappointed by this movie and certainly was entertained.but this is not as close match to the sequals with Donnie Yen.The actor who plays the young Ip man is good but not a close match to Donnie Yen.I understand that this prequal was an early period of Ip man's life so it had to be played by another actor,but I am also guessing that I am not the only one who would like to see on more sequal with Donnie.I was also surprised that Summo Hung was only in this one for a short period of time.
    All in all pretty good acting and entertaining martial arts action.

    September 14, 2011 very sad film Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
    Before buying the item I read lot of negative reviews of Body and Assassins and how crap it was.But I didn't care because it had Donnie Yen in it and I am Donnie Yen fan.
    After watching the film it surpassed my expectation.I thought it was shot and choreographed very well.Setting the story in the past was also done well.The actors,including Donnie Yen and Nicolas Tse, played their part good and you really do feel the pain and sence of honor these character go through in this journey.

    My only downside with the film is that the director didn't put enough action in the first half and didn' put Donnie Yen in many scenes.Other than that everything else was perfect.

    Highly recommended.

  • September 11, 2011 Glory days of Hong Kong action Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
    Hong Kong used to produce some of the most hardcore action pictures in the 80's and early 90's.Tiger Cage certainly is not as good John Woo's The Killer and Hard Boiled but it is still a good crime action thriller amongst Hong Kong cinema.They don't make movies like these anymore.

    The plot is good.Simon Yam always proves that he the man for the job and as for this picture he plays his role very well.Jacky Cheung gives a gritty performance and Carol Cheng is good as a female cop who struggles to keep her personal life.And Donnie Yen was also good and does pretty impressive martial arts moves,but I was surprised that he was only in half of the film.

    As of the action,it is top notch.Hardcore and served with davastating blow is the way I liked it.Yuen Wo Ping did a fine job with this one.Eventhough he is more suited doing Martial arts pictures,Tiger Cage and In the line of Duty 4 (1989) remains his best films which revoles around guns.

    Higly rcommended cop/crime thriller.

    July 26, 2011 Very good sad film.But not fantastic Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
    I was quite surprised that this remake version of shaolin was good.I was not expecting it to like it.But it is a good film and somehow mixes a deep somtimes over the top drama with very well executed martial arts.Wushu maestros Wu Jing and Xing Yu deliever the kicks.Jackie Chan's character offers a slight comedic release to the tension and was important in terms of the film's main plot.But Andy Lau is the best in shaolin and I liked his transformation from a bad person to a good shaolin monk.

    Highly recommended.

  • July 1, 2011 Chinese Sherlock Holmes Customer Review Rated Bad 6 - 6 out of 10
    Dectective Dee is a cross between Sherlock Holmes and Indiana Jones but in a Chinese kind of way.I thought the film was not bad nor great,but it was in between.Andy Lau was good as Dectective Dee and all the other cast were good as well.But I just wished the film had little bit of more action.

    An average film from Tsui Hark.

    June 21, 2011 Best wuxia in a long time Customer Review Rated Bad 8 - 8 out of 10
    I am a fan of sword movies and Reign of Assassins is one of those movies that works very well on delevering good sword action.The story is not the most original but it shows a nice background for the viewer to see the beautiful acting and action scenes.At times it's a love story and others a suspence flick with all the intrique.The actors do good job in conveying their emotions to the audience.Most of the characters get fleshed out,so your not only intresting in the main character.
    Story wise I have to say that some of the things were bit confusing,but if you pay attention it all will make sence.
    And now the action.The action scenes deliver and are plenty and well choreographed.All the sword fights was made believable,nothing was over the top.I especially liked how the action sometimes slows down just to show the viewer how things are done.This brings the action more to life and I actually notice all the gestures the actors need to make in order to sway or dodge an attack.

    Overall I enjoyed the film.
