Like The Raid, but with Dredd and Slomo drugs
1. Man goes up some stairs
2. Bad guy tries to punch/kick man
3. Man catches/dodges bad guy's punch/kick, punches/kicks bad guy
4. GOTO 2, *100
5. GOTO 1
It starts. There is action for a bit, then it stops. It is very economical and there is little flab on it, plus mandem gets kicked all over the face.
Dredd is similar, very little flab, and they both just END. No high fives, no sequel set up, no time spent on everyones backstories and origin stories, just. GUY>LOCATION>FIGHTMANS
easily the best action film of the last 10 years
It's good, but I really didn't think it was amazing as everyone makes it out to be. The endless action just got a bit tiresome, there was no pacing or nuance at all
It just seems like the perfect film for people who use the word 'dumb' as a positive adjective.
+ 20 points for being Asian cinema not from Hong Kong, South Korea or Japan
havent watched the rest yet. The unrelenting violence started to grate after a while.
and more Dredd. It comes close in tone to the comics, but lacks that silly British humour.
but it's not the Raid or anything
and enjoyed the whole film.
after I've finished Flight(good so far).
is the most overrated foreign language film since that Argentinian one about the guy locked in a shed for ages.
Don't really watch any action films anymore, but it was completely lean- little character development/back story, just pure action. Visually/aurally pretty interesting.
i enjoyed it
so technically The Raid is like Dredd
its pretty much 1000x better than the Stallone version, even the haters will have to agree that much.
