(es) wrote: Another entry in the Bruce Timm supervised DCU animated universe that loosely asks similar questions to Man of Steel, due to a new band of misfit superheroes who have no compucture of using deadly force to solve the worlds problems, is Superman still relevant in todays society? The big selling point for this entry is the closing battle scene with Superman seemingly loosing control and almost terminally disposing of the interloopers. Not an all time classic like the recent Dark Knight Returns Duology, New Frontier or Return of the Joker, it does present some interesting points in tackling a hero that is in risk of becoming dated.

Typically gangster movies are predictable, but this film does not even try to be different! With a similar plot line & set of events which have been witnessed in almost every other gangster movie! Nevertheless Andrew law manages to keep the everything engaging, as the focus of the story is nicely kept between the gang members, their relationships and the intrigue and betrayal among them. The action scenes look nice with the touch of hand-carried camera angle emphasizing the panic in them. The movie doesn't get to be too graphic about the violence, fading out to black or just out right skipping to other scenes when things are about to go visually disturbing. The acting overall however feels like it's missing something. Justin Chon tries his best at an action-crime role, but being known as the Asian dude from Twilight sure doesn't lift his status on this movie. The other casts just barely kept the acting going with no real effort on the expressions. Having Ray Liotta doesn't really help the acting overall. For me the movie overall feels like a Martin Scorcese movie about street gangs with Hong Kong standard acting. This movie can be termed as an average just another gangster movie to come out & may even hit his target audience, but I wouldn't recommend watching this for anyone looking for a nice entertaining action film.

The comedy in this film couldn't appeal to the lowest common dominator. the acting, what's the point of talking about the acting, it was like the actors just came on the set, didn't give a rats arse, just read there lines and then drunk their sorrows. Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer are scum of cinema, they honestly don't care about their craft and the audience and it shows with this atrocity of a film, it uses cheap humour, like Amy Winehouse being a drunk vampire. but the worse thing about this film is the ending, honestly I cant write into words how cheap the ending was. The thing that pisses me off the most is that the film mocks film which are 100 times better than this film, for example no country for old men which is a fantastic film by the Coen Brothers with unbelievable cinematography by the legend which is Roger Deakins. This is the worse film of all time, no film can be as bas as this, even if you tried you couldn't. This film gets 0/10.
(au) wrote: A quietly deceptive movie that demands patience and a sort of intuitive skill from the viewer, takes a while to sort out just what is going on and when, and it's a little confusing at first however, the film eventually comes together and serves as a homage to middle-American intolerance. It has a purity and warmth that underscores the value of taking your time and getting it right. Viewers may be put off by it's somewhat heavy handed approach, but the film is mostly saved by some wonderful performances.
