Across the Pacific
Rick Leland makes no secret of the fact he has no loyalty to his home country after he is court-marshaled out of the army and boards a Japanese ship for the Orient in late 1941. But has Leland really been booted out, or is there some other motive for his getting close to fellow passenger Doctor Lorenz? Any motive for getting close to attractive traveller Alberta Marlow would however seem pretty obvious.

(kr) wrote: Surprising depth and performances all around, especially that of Carrell who stretches his range here. The plot is nothing new but the script is still inventive enough to accentuate its characters and provide a fresh feel.

(fr) wrote: One of the best action movies you'll ever see. It delivers the stylized blood and violence, with a little bit of depth as well.Picking up where the first film lets off, Ogami Itto and his son Daigoro are traveling and are attacked by ninjas. The sinister Yagyu clan are still after him, and they send another district after him. Ogami must contend with this new threat, as well as perform an assassination on the side.With nearly non-stop action, the movie is never boring. It matches the pacing of the first, with skillful precision. The action is fluid and suspenseful, milking out every action scene to its fullest extent. You'll find yourself holding your breath during the more intense set pieces.As for the rest, it does delve into some themes of fate and destiny, showing some character development when Ogami refuses to kill one of his enemies and shows her the error of her ways. We also get some touching development with the father/son relationship, as Daigoro has gotten a bit older since we last saw him.Being only the second film in a series of six, this installment is strong as a stand alone film. Definitely worth seeing, but for a better experience seek out Lone Wolf and Cub: Sword of Vengeance first.

(it) wrote: Greatest sports film to feature minimal gameplay. Award worthy performances give us an interesting and well paced story on the strategy of sports statistics.
(ru) wrote: Handsomely made and old-fashioned in pace and texture - a lot of the success hangs on the three leads' wonderful performances and chemistry rather than the story (based on a Patricia Highsmith novel) which is only occasionally interesting.
(kr) wrote: This is not a gripping story. It's a collection of cliches, 1980's bad Korean animation with steroid pumped action figures whose only purpose is to operate mechs to sell a seiries and merchandise. H.G must be rolling in his grave to quote another cliche.
