Carry on Regardless
It's non stop romps as the Carry On team deliver the goods in one of the rudest and funniest of the Carry On films. The cast are all on top form as a bunch of no-hoppers who join an agency in the search for a job. The anarchy mounts as they do a series of odd jobs, including a chimps tea party, trying to stay sober at a wine tasting and demolishing a house.

(gb) wrote: Excellent film. Charles Murray wrote a great script and crafted a compelling narrative. The actors were all on point. Omari Hardwick always delivers and he is superb in this movie. The surprise was Shanola Hampton. She brought it. She is a fine and powerful actress. Elimu Nelson scared the heck out me! Highly recommend this film.

(br) wrote: This might be one of the rare examples where the remake is actually superior to the film that inspired it. Of course we're talking about The Departed. There's just something about that film that feels more complete. Of course, I'm not saying that this film is bad, as you can see that I thought the film was great by the rating I gave it. I just thought The Departed was a little more complex, enthralling, and better acted. It just flows better and it's over an hour longer than this one. With that said, this film is absolutely no slouch. The Departed wouldn't have ever existed if not for this film's creatively suspenseful and twisty plot. I think since it's been over a decade since this film's release, people have sort of forgotten how influential this movie was for Hong Kong cinema in general. The main problem, while I found parts of the film to be perfectly executed, is that it's a rough start for the most part. It truly takes a while before you're truly invested in the movie. It's probably 30-35 minutes in the movie once both bosses, Wong and Sam, realize that the other has a mole working for them. This is when the movie really kicks into high gear. The movie's characters struggle with where their loyalties lie. Well Lau, working for the police but feeding Sam, the mobster, information, is the only one struggles with his loyalties. Yan, in my opinion, was always dedicated to his work as an undercover cop, it's just that he's had to do shitty things to maintain a certain appearance with Sam. Lau, on the other hand, struggles because I think he's genuinely grown to respect SP Wong, the superintendent of the police, but he's also loyal to Sam, while also looking out for himself. I think Lau did everything that he did for his own personal gain, not because of any grudge he may have had with Sam over any of his actions in the film. I think Lau saw an opportunity to improve his own standing in the department and he did what he did to achieve that. But there's also a part of him that feels like there's still some good left in him, even if he did some questionable things. It's not like in The Departed where Matt Damon's character, which would be Lau in this film, was just a detestable rat. There were parts of the film that I didn't like, like this subplot that came out of nowhere with Yan's ex not telling him that he actually has a daughter. This only serves to add a little bit of sentimentality to the ending, nothing else. It added nothing to the film. There's also some sentimentality with ***MASSIVE SPOILERS*** Wong's and Yan's death. They show flashbacks of their deeds while sad music plays in the background. It didn't work because the score was really cheap sounding. It made everything more laughable actually. That's one of the few complaints I have. Very few complaints really. The film is never bad, it just takes a while before it kicks into high gear. One of the things I liked about this is how every decision opens up several potential consequences. Like if Lau does A, it could lead to B, C, D, or E. Hell it could lead to all of them. There's an importance to every action, especially what reaction it's gonna cause. Not that it's missing from other films, but it's far more noticeable here. While I think this film's remake is much better, and it has some flaws, this is still an excellent example of why Hong Kong has some truly excellent police thrillers up its sleeve.
(fr) wrote: You put him in a situation that threatened violence The heavyweight boxing champion of the world has been sent to jail after being found guilty of rape. Within the jail there are ongoing boxing events where an infamous boxing amateur holds the current title. Shortly after the champion's arrival, an inmate with mob ties sets up a boxing match between the champion and the amateur. Who will win this hotly contested event? "I don't want nobody to talk to me unless I talk to them." Walter Hill, director of Trespass, Last Man Standing, Supernova, Johnny Handsome, Wild Bill, 48 hrs., Another 48 Hrs, Red Heat, Brewster's Millions, The Warriors, and Southern Comfort, delivers Undisputed. The storyline for this picture is okay and nothing special overall. The fight sequences are fairly decent and the acting was mediocre even for the genre. The cast includes Wesley Snipes, Ving Rhames, Peter Falk, Michael Rooker, and Ed Lover. "Some women like it rough. Do you know anything about that?" I try to see as many Roger Corman and Walter Hill pictures as possible. They seem to deliver solid Grindhouse/B movies consistently; however, this era wasn't kind to either of them. This modern prison drama isn't overly fascinating even with the Mike Tyson undertone. This is an average picture but nothing special overall. "He got a brand new tattoo just for the occasion." Grade: C
