Bernard L (ca) wrote: John Brzenk isn't a household name unless you follow the sport of arm wrestling -- but if you do, Brzenk is to his sport what Michael Jordan is to basketball or Muhammad Ali is to boxing. Born in 1964, Brzenk began competing seriously at age 16, and two years later he won his first world championship. Since then, Brzenk has been the man to beat in any serious international competition, and he has held the world arm wrestling championship for close to a quarter of a century. But at the age of 40, Brzenk finds himself facing the same questions that vex any great athlete.Should he retire while he's still at the top, or wait for time, age and stronger, younger competitors to strip him of his title?This documentary also profiles two men regarded as likely candidates to take Brzenk's place as arm wrestling's king of the mountain -- Alexey Voevoda, a Russian from a long line of military heroes who wants to bring the championship home to his country, and Travis Bagent, a spirited young American who has followed Brzenk's career since he was a child and sees himself as the heir to his throne.I thought Pulling John was an interesting documentary. I had no contact at all with arm wrestling; I didn't even know that there are official tournaments and it was nice to get a bit of insight into an overlooked sport that very few people talk about. At the same time, the subject is a bit limited. We are given some information about the beginnings of the sport and how it has evolved, the different techniques and so forth but let's not kid ourselves; in the end it's two guys trying to pull each other's arm. There's not a whole lot to talk about. That's why Pulling John focuses almost completely in this 3 individuals. Travis Bagent, the up-and-coming American who's extremely loud and obnoxious, Alexey Voevoda, the calm and collected Russian and Brzenk, the living legend. The human component is definitely what makes this documentary an interesting watch. Overall, it's quite entertaining and insightful, specially for someone who isn't familiarized with the sport of arm wrestling but it's not a great documentary by any means.

JH K (es) wrote: La mas representativa pelicula de Jackie Chan en su etapa americana. Lo mejor es irse al final de la cinta y ver el como se hizo durante los creditos, los asombrosos stunts y las ganas de matarse que tiene todo el equipo, con Jackie Chan a la cabeza, son asombrosos... ver lo que pasa en pantalla sabiendo que es real es una gozada, y solo por eso merece la pena... pero claro, el resto de aspectos estan poco cuidados, y es una pena, con un poquito mas de guion, personajes y produccion podrian lograrse cintas realmente epicas.

Will D (kr) wrote: Clearly this film is utterly inept with terrible performances.... or is it? And are they? I kept changing my mind about it throughout. I can see why everyone hates Julian Sands' performance, but I actually rather liked what he was trying to do. The story itself wasn't actually a bad idea either. What really let the film down for me was the screenplay, which was littered with pointless diversions and atrocious dialogue.

Derek J (it) wrote: story doesn't feel contrived or directionless. you wanna be one of them and great shaky cam use. performers embody their roles while friendship is ultimately tested. it's intense. and oh yeah, korean women are still the most beautiful. (;

Thomas P (us) wrote: It's a chaotic and relatively fun film, although the characters and not particularly edifying and the dialogue loses its way with boring scenes. It's a pretty narcissistic world, selling itself as cool and stylish. And so despite itself, it's a tragedy.

Matt H (fr) wrote: A strange morality tale about...doctors treating patients well??? The film tries to take some big moral stance on something that seems unneeded. I guess it's a stance of science vs. superstition, but it's mostly handled so heavy-handed that it really weights down the movie. Cary Grant is fine, he's actually rather convincing as a doctor. The "love story" is very weak, never felt that they had anything romantic going on until the discovery that she was pregnant. Definitely lesser Cary Grant (and Joseph L. Mankiewicz).

Les E (fr) wrote: A vast life long story with many separate episodes packed into one film. All the parts were glanced at too briefly and it just didn't work. I liked Rains as the hard hearted Father of the lead but no-one else.

The S (ca) wrote: The most ambitious and fanciful of the original trio of Harry Palmer films, this might easily be confused with a James Bond movie. Caine is as good as ever but the down-to-earth Palmer seems to have ascended to a level that his prevoius incarnations would have been uncomfortable with. Cast and locations are excellent.

Andy P (fr) wrote: 'Hellraiser' has a great premise for a horror film, yet doesn't quite reach its full potential. The basic story is about a magical puzzle box, which when is unlocked opens a doorway to a hellish alternate universe. A man named Frank unlocks the box and is ripped apart by chains and hooks, his body parts collected by the demons who live in this alternate universe, and is enslaved by them and trapped in their world. What follows is a grotesque and macabre series of methods for Frank to escape the realm and rejuvenate every time his girlfriend kills someone in his house. This is a brilliant and fascinating idea for a horror film, which is actually based on a book called 'The Hell-Bound Heart'. However, despite this brilliant premise the film has a lot of flaws. The acting is quite poor and the narrative is messy. So even though it was a messy film, it was still a fascinating one thanks to the premise. The make-up and special effects are good for its time and the gore is actually pretty cool, and Ashley Laurence makes for some good eye-candy as Winona Ryder's doppleganger.

Bengel W (ag) wrote: Stylish photography, mood setting music and a well written script means laughter. The actors make this story work well as their effort is rewarded in our enjoyment. As the mystery of the women is revealed the laughter increases to a pitch, and a few good morals take shape. Nibbles: Cookies and a glass of milk for this one!
