Samurai of Ayothaya (aka. Muay Thai Warrior)
Remember what they say “Don’t bring a knife to a gunfight”? Well, these guys in “Muay Thai Warrior” bring “Fists to a Swordfight” in several scenes. Originally titled “Yamada: The Samurai of Ayothaya”, director Nopporn Watin’s is based on a historical figure during the Ayothaya Era. Yamada Nagamasa was a Japanese man who gained considerable …

Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie
The Street Fighter video game franchise may be one of the most successful video game franchises in history. It had spawned numerous video game sequels, countless remixes, an anime series, an American cartoon series, inspired two shameful live-action American flicks, a manga, and a Japanese anime movie directed by Gisaburo Sugii. I was going to wait for the uncut Japanese release before I was going …

Sleepy Eyes of Death: Collector's Set Vol. 3
      I feel somewhat ashamed.  See, I’m coming to this fascination of mine with samurai films much later than most, and I’d never ever heard of the SLEEPY EYES OF DEATH series of films until I happened across an online article detailing upcoming releases.  I did some research, and, now, I’m able to struggle through my penance for not learning of them …

The Raid: Redemption
**** out of ****    In one of the darkest corners of Jakarta, Indonesia there is a run-down apartment complex that houses a plethora of criminals, drug addicts, killers, and the crime lord Tama Riyada (Ray Sahetapy). His kingdom has remained unscathed due to the unsuccessful attempts on the part of the local police to smoke out the place and its inhabitants (his tenants), although …

**** out of ****    What would you do if you were in the place of hacker Thomas Anderson (Keanu Reeves) - popularly known by his in-movie online alias of "Neo" - in that you woke up one morning to cryptic messages on your computer monitor referencing this thing that you are indifferent to known only as the matrix? If you were Anderson, you would keep following the white rabbit, …

You may be wondering what exactly I mean by that title. What I mean is that it's widely-believed that the Matrix is one of the best sci-fi action films ever made. Oh what a grand lie that is. By the time you're done reading this review, you'll know that the Matrix is NOT original, intelligent, thought-provoking, or even that entertaining.      PLOT      …

The Raid: Redemption
Star Rating:         The Raid: Redemption is unwatchably bad – a film that has no ambition other than to be noisy, aggressive, and relentlessly violent. Watching it is a little like being trapped in an arcade game and having absolutely no control over it. The characters, developed solely on shallow and overused clichés, are essentially targets in a shooting …

The Raid: Redemption
In the middle of Jakarta's slums lies an impenetrable apartment complex which is a safe house for the city's most dangerous murderers, killers and gangsters. The crappy apartment block has been considered untouchable to even the police. It all changes when an elite team is tasked with raiding the building in order to take down the notorious crime lord Tama Riyandi who runs it and ultimately resides …

The Raid: Redemption
I’ve been so disappointed with the recent flurry of Hollywood commercial films that I had to once again use my nose to find a great movie amongst the independent/foreign film circuit in my local neighborhood theater. This is how I came across the Indonesian Action film called “The Raid: Redemption” (Indonesian title: “Serbuan Maut” translates to "The Deadly Attack"). …
