Jackson D (de) wrote: The acting is comparable to a porno and supposedly artistic scenes fall totally flat, this movie is drawn out and quite boring. The only part that wasn't a disappointment was the seizure inducing, hypnotic title sequence.

The show will immediately enthrawl you into a whirlwind of Fear, anger and disgust because of it's lack of compassion. However there will be no other way of telling the story without provoking human emotions in you. WW2 Has always been a time of Sorrow for the people of Europe, and this short TV series is no different. Except for 1 thing, instead of onlooking from afar or by a bystander's point of you view, the war and rise of Hitlers Power of Hitler Reich is by himself and his Followers. The attempt of this is not to have pity for the man but a grasp on his Reasoning and what trigger so much hate into someones heart. Kinda like a cautionary tale of 'What happens when people (Good People) do nothing at all but stand aside and let Horrific things unravel.

Andy P (us) wrote: Sonatine is a brilliantly unconventional take on the Japanese Yakuza crime genre which at some point takes a trademark Kitano turn and plays out like a strikingly odd gangster holiday movie, complete with games of frisbee, Summer romance and sudden bursts of bloody violence.
Brad S (mx) wrote: Classic film from Orson Welles that I hadn't watched in ages, it looks amazing on Blu-ray. It's a good film-noir story that stars Welles and his then wife, the gorgeous Rita Hayworth. Good story keeps it moving. This is a must for movie lovers!
Chris A (jp) wrote: Yes it's the weakest of the trilogy but it's not that far off. It's still unique versus the third as a rework of the first.

Alex W (fr) wrote: This feels like the game "the last of us" if it were directed by terrance malick. The independentness of it bleeds though a bit more then i would have liked but not enough to ruin anything. The 2 main characters are a traumatized boy and a bad ass, nether of which say very much. It makes scene story wise but gets a little boring when there the ones on screen the most not saying anything. The plot works despite having a big overall story or themes. Very good ending to this film as well that's not to much or to little. Also features one of my fav actresses Danielle harris.
