Review: The Sherlockian THE BULLET VANISHES Eschews Ego for Mystery
This is playing in limited release out here right now.Despite the mystery there are some blistering albeit brief action scenes that come from nowhere, adding to the excitement. One particularly inspired fireworks set piece was quite impressive and not over the top to detract from the looming mystery at hand. Some scenes are more conventional than others, the obligatory romance scenes and exposition for instance would fit right at home in a commercial American production, but overall, The Bullet Vanishes is a great crowd-pleasing good old fashioned mystery, set in a pretty unique location and contains some very unexpected developments, it comes highly recommended as an intelligent genre flick.
Review: The Flying Swords of Dragon Gate | CraveOnline
This is a recommend. Flying Swords of Dragon Gate has a one week limited run in Imax theaters and you should absolutely take the chance to see a Hong Kong action movie on a bigger than big screen, with 3D on the side. It’s not the next Hard Boiled or Iron Monkey but they didn’t shoot those in Imax 3D. My critique is of the film in context of the genre, but the experience overall is inarguably worthwhile.
Gyo: Tokyo Fish Attack (2012) | Horror Movie, DVD, & Book Reviews, News, Interviews at Dread Central
How often does one come away from a movie wishing it had more walking sharks and fewer biomechanical fart-powered zombies?
That was my second reaction as the credits began to roll at the end of Gyo: Tokyo Fish Attack. My first reaction was “WTF?!?!” Seriously, WTF, Japan?
Describing the plot of Gyo is virtually impossible because A) that would spoil the visual insanity that simply has to be experienced for oneself, and B) that would require me to try and explain a premise that really can’t be explained because it is absolutely insane. Gyo is the fever dream I imagine H.P. Lovecraft would have come up with if after eating some tainted sushi and experiencing a sleepless night of gassy indigestion
