reviewed Gladiator. May 17, 2009
Gladiator
Gladiator is an overrated nightmare. Whoever wrote this screenplay did not research their history very well. The acting was mediocre and it's filled with numerous flaws and wholesale gaps of logic. I …
reviewed Above The Law. May 16, 2009
Above The Law
Above the Law is the first (and best) Steven Seagal film (with the exception of BELLY OF THE BEAST). The movie showcases Seagal's action prowess (certainly not his brilliant acting skills). The film makers …
reviewed Shogun. May 16, 2009
Shogun
This rates up with the best books I have ever read. The book looks imposing (more than 1200 pages) but once you start you will be about 500 pages into it before you know it. Super-rich in history with …
reviewed JCVD. May 14, 2009
JCVD
JCVD is just what all the other reviews claim, it's a tour de force for Jean-Claude Van Damme The Actor. If you're renting this expecting anything at all in the way of action then you are going …
reviewed The Karate Kid Part II. May 14, 2009
The Karate Kid Part II
The Karate Kid, Part II was unavoidable. You know after the success of the first installment there was going to be a sequel. The cash cow franchise wasn't going to be denied this time around (eventually …
reviewed Karate Kid. May 14, 2009
Karate Kid
The Karate Kid was not only the start of a trilogy (plus one) but it also beget the short lived karate/self defense craze of the mid 80's, spawned several sequels and it also was responsible for a dreadful …
reviewed The Matrix. May 12, 2009
DVD front
What can I say about this film that hasn't been said. It is the first of its genre and the best. It opened a whole new way to film fight scenes. Neo is a quiet businessman who seems to get sucked into …
reviewed Hero (movie). May 03, 2009
Hero
First off, this movie is way better than Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. The fact that it is based on a legend in China makes it even better. Some of the most amazing directing and fight scenes I have …
reviewed Secret Rivals. May 01, 2009
Secret Rivals
Before we get into our story we're told about the nature of the Invincible Armor. It seems that once you've mastered this style, which is the most difficult to learn, you become all but impervious to …
reviewed Kill Bill Vol. 2. May 01, 2009
Kill Bill Vol. 2
Kill Bill: Vol. 2 is the second half of a three hour plus movie that was directed by Quentin Tarantino (the action scenes were directed by Yuen Woo-Ping). Since nobody wanted to watch a nearly four hour …
reviewed Sun Dragon. May 01, 2009
Sun Dragon
One of the great mysteries in martial arts film is why Billy Chong did not become a superstar of the genre, a question that will certainly perplex any of you who haven't heard of him and decide to check …
reviewed Na Cha the Great. May 01, 2009
Na Cha the Great
I've been waiting for over 30 years for someone to produce a good, clear, letter-boxed version of this movie, and BINGO! Red Sun has done it for me! Should you get yourself a copy of NA CHA THE GREAT? …

Some years have passed since the success of "Thai Warrior Ong-Bak" which launched action superstar Tony Jaa to superstardom and his follow up hit "Tom Yum Goong" (aka. The Protector). …
reviewed House of Flying Daggers. April 29, 2009
House of Flying Daggers
I can't say enough about how perfect this movie was made. It was like the director perfected every still with camera angles, "Matrix" effects, and rich colors. I had previously seen Crouching Tiger Hidden …
reviewed Transporter 2. April 29, 2009
Transporter 2
This is one of the best action films I have seen in years. Jason Stratham does an excellent job of improving on his character that we saw in the dismal original film and the director has made a movie …
reviewed The Last Samurai (movie). April 29, 2009
Last Samurai
In the tradition of the Shogun miniseries, this movie paints a wonderful picture of life under the Japanese Samurai. This time it is darning a time of modernization in Japan. Railroads and factories are …
reviewed Jet Li's Fearless (2006). April 29, 2009
Jet Li's Fearless (Unrated Widescreen Edition)
This is one of the best martial arts films I have seen! This is a film that didn't give into the hokey symbolism and fantasy that seems to be prevalent in a lot of the Chinese period movies about the …
reviewed Enter the Dragon (movie). April 28, 2009
Enter the Dragon
Enter the Dragon (1973) was Bruce Lee's first (and only) solo big Hollywood production. Too bad he never got to see the fruits of his labor. He passed away during the film's post production (don't fret, …
reviewed Kill Bill Vol. 1. April 27, 2009
Kill Bill Vol. 1
Kill Bill: Volume One was the first part of a three and a half hour film. Instead of putting out a three and a half hour grind house picture, the directed split it in half and got two movies out of the …
reviewed Transporter 3. April 21, 2009
Transporter 3
Whenever I watch a Jason Statham movie, I always throw out any expectation of a decent plot out the window immediately.  Because of this, I've learned to enjoy all his movies... or at least most …
reviewed Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. March 23, 2009
Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon DVD
How could this movie make so many peoples' top 10 lists? The plot was ridiculous. The fight scenes were no big deal (generally any low budget Chinese Kung Fu movie has similar scenes. What was with all …
reviewed James Clavell's Shogun the Miniseries. March 23, 2009
James Clavell's Shogun the Miniseries
Richard Chamberlain gives an excellent performance as well as all the Japanese actors in this well-made adaptation of Clavell's novel. It sticks fairly well to the plot of the book.     Super-rich …

Transporter 3 (2008)
Transporter is such an amazing film, a real surprise, great timing, interesting story, and just the right amount of action. Fast forward to version 3, and everything just feels wrong.    The …
