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 …

House of Flying Daggers
The very first time I saw this amazing film I was wrapped around its finger. Everything about it is perfect from its scenery to the perfectly paced and executed fight scenes. After the first time you …

The Legend of Zorro (Widescreen Special Edition)
Well, it's not as good as it's predecessor. But the Legend of Zorro still makes for decent entertainment. That's due in no small part to the abilities of its two stars, Antonio Banderas and Catherine …

Samurai 7: Search for the Seven v.1 (2005)
I remember there being a lot of talk about this series among fans, some good and some very bad. I watched Samurai 7 expecting nothing but a below average series that was getting it's popularity for being …

Transporter 2 (2005)
I couldn't believe they even made a Transporter 2, the first one was alright but I didn't think it would get this far but I guess the rest of the world seem to enjoyed it. Now, I'm all for a good action …

Transporter 2
Pros: Action, action, and more action.     Cons: Some of the movie is too implausible.     The Bottom Line: While the acting is mostly mediocre that action is top-notch, …

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon DVD
Some people here cannot see the beauty of things even when it hits them in the face. Ang Lee has said he has always wanted to make a Wu Xia film and he did, he brought sophistication and strong production …

The Legend of Zorro (Widescreen Special Edition)
Unlike many of the inevitable sequels that follow popular expensive movies, THE LEGEND OF ZORRO is happily a lot of fun to watch. Though overlong in excess of two hours, and though the story line is pushed …

Transporter 2 (2005)
Luc Besson and Louis Leterrier created such a terrific action thriller with THE TRANSPORTER in 2002, giving Jason Statham the opportunity to create a man of crime so clever and dignified that the film …

The Transporter
I must admit that I agree with some of the other reviewers in saying that Jason Statham bassically is the film. Of course the story isn't really all that impressive but the idea of a transporter that …

Transporter 2 (2005)
I saw the Transporter and Transporter 2 not comparing it to any other movies like James Bond or the Bourne films and I thought the movies were amazing. The thing that was different about Transporter is …

Keanu Reeves plays Neo Anderson (a name which means "new man"). Is he living "for real"? Or is he caught up in a computer program that dictates his reality?     He has a choice between …

The Transporter
I watch a lot of movies, and it takes quite a bit to make me take notice. This move grabbed me by the throat and demanded my attention. Jason Statham plays Frank Martin, a former military man who's turned …

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 …

James Clavell's Shogun (1980)
Shogun by James Clavell is one of my favorite novels and the mini-series is fabulous, if a bit tedious at times. This 10-hour epic follows the exploits of John Blackthorne, a navigator on a Dutch ship …

House of Flying Daggers
When the neighborhood movie houses seem to have an overwhelming number of martial arts films, both takeoffs on 'Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon' quality and the 'Matrix' clone dalliances, and when the …

Last Samurai
I was surprised that I actually liked this one, particularly since it seemed to promise just another run-of-the-mill action/adventure period piece. Of course I happen to be partial to these kinds of stories …

James Clavell's Shogun (1980)
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 …

Last Samurai
It's unfortunate that some people dont see the true beauty of this film, like me if you are a anime fan you should see it. The last samurai is great from beginning to end the fight scenes were great and …

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 during a time of modernization in Japan. Railroads and factories are …

Each time I watch this movie, it seems to get better. I watched it with my teen children years ago and now have the pleasure of watching it with my grandchildren. It has lost none of it's charm. This …
