They used to play so much American Grindhouse that you could take in a ton of these 'lost' exploitation movies on a regular basis by just tuning in @ any point of the day. Ive had a love of Grindhouse for over ten years now & Im constantly looking for new titles. I was hoping this documentary would open the catalogue a little more for me & in part it did. Ive never seen any of the 'roughies' from the 60s. My ventures are more into stuff from the 30s, 50s, 60s & 70s. I prefer the shit from the 70s but this flix breezes through them by the time we hit that decade. For fans of the genre it's a nice companion piece & pretty informative but I found it too short for the subject matter. Maybe that's just because Im a fan. Love the all too brief interviews w/ Fred Williamson & especially David Hess who wants to cut off your cock while you're smelling the roses. lol the man's a fucking legend

Sameen M (ru) wrote: The reality is that this film sucks. It is terrible and only relevant because everyone's favorite rapper Nas is in it and DMX. If you look past the many flaws this film suffers from, you're looking at two rappers jukein' it out being total badasses and I enjoyed that, obviously more than some. Also the scene where they watch Gummo is so hilarious.

Corey B (ca) wrote: This movie is ahead of it's time, if this movie was done now I think this movie would be much more well received. Regardless this movie is so beautifully lit and shot. It's sad that everyone kisses Kubrick's ass yet in reality Coppola's movies were always better. This is no better, best cinematography I've ever seen. The kind of movie only one's dreams could project.
Jesse T (es) wrote: As John Woo-inspired as the film may claim to be, this film fall short. The violence quotient is notably low, which, while not necessarily a bad thing in and of itself, it does nothing to energize the film's slow pace and lackluster plot. Even when gunfire occurs there is remarkably little panache to the proceedings, save for the finale, which rises above the rest of the film, but not the genre. Action aside, the characters are the most important part of this movie but they aren't given their due; they're hollow stereotypes at best, making it impossible for me to honestly care about anything, really.

Robert B (es) wrote: The film had a movie for TV vibe which is appropriate considering the original material. Loosely based on the TV series of the same name it tells the story of the Flying Squad in London headed by Ray WInston a man stuck in the past and having to deal with political correctness and a new way of doing police work. No where near as good as the tv series but I think fans of the original will appreciate the effort.
Russell G (kr) wrote: Sometimes I feel like the drop in quality of sequels is not as bad as it once was. Then I watch a movie like this, and I remember why everyone laments that sequels are never as good as the first. Minimizing the main attraction of the transformers themselves and focusing more on people is a questionable strategy to begin with. Worse yet, failing to write a decent story around those human roles is unforgivable. It is interesting how the transformers inhabited earth since the beginning of civilization, but that leads to tons of unanswered questions that the film did not even try confronting. It exhibits mass amounts of flawed logic and lacks connectivity the previous movie or even to itself. We do not learn anything new about the two main characters or their relationship together. Instead, the filmmakers spent tons of money to make a visually impressive movie with glitzy action sequences and special effects. Effects never compensate for bad content. Constantly orbiting cameras and distracting foreground elements do not focus on the subject. At one point during the movie, a grumpy John Turturro demands "Beginning, middle, end, facts, details, condense, plot, tell it." I am certain the cameras were rolling while a descent actor explained to Michael Bay what this movie was lacking. It was better than most of the movie, so they added that part in. The only good news here is that it moves fast, Megan Fox is still pretty, and John Turturro gives the movie shred of integrity with his humor. Even that it is nothing but lazy, shallow, forgettable, and disposable filler.
