David C (it) wrote: Standard, mindless fight martial arts movie with mostly the typical moves you've seen choreographed in a slightly sub-par style. Bonus points seeing Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa (aka Shang Tsung from Mortal Kombat), but ultimately its barely a film worth your time.
Jef C (de) wrote: Hypnotic mood piece lensed like a long lost Terrence Malick picture. Faultless performances and understated, ethereal direction. A rare 21st century counterculture film that convinces in terms of atmosphere and language. Nuanced, meditative, melancholic. Favorite release of 2013 thus far.

Al S (ag) wrote: A stunning and powerful thriller. A multi-layered character and story driven film thats packed with action, suspense, style and stars. A great movie. It`s The Line meets Traffic. A brilliant and masterful crime-drama. Director, R. Ellis Frazier a wonderful first feature film, he proved to be a great writer with The Line, now he proves to be a great director with Across the Line. An outstanding all-star cast that all deliver. Aidan Quinn gives a great and strong performance. Mario Van Peebles is excellent. Luke Goss is terrific. Danny Pino is fantastic. Andy Garcia is magnificent, one of his best performances ever. A thrilling, dramatic, tense and very entertaining action-packed film that grabs you and dose not let go for a minute. A bold, moving, utterly compelling and electric piece of work. It keeps you on the edge of your seat and grabs you tightly and has you drawn to every one of these great characters and in depth with its story.

Hugo G (nl) wrote: This was a terrific documentary, that really well informed its viewers about how absurd is the MPAA rating system and it's whole corporation. It surprised me a lot to learn about just how ridiculous it all is, and just how they feel they are doing any good for everyone, when instead they are restricting us, the viewers and making the decisions for us.

James K (gb) wrote: [font=Comic Sans MS]starts out good and draws you in. To bad by the end there is no picture worth looking at. The main players are introduced smoothly, via the use of flashbacks, too bad they tell the best part of the story. However by the time you get halfway through the movie they have grown old and the entire story at that point then becomes about what happens to a package of drugs. [/font]

Ola G (de) wrote: It is 1941 and the German submarine fleet is heavily engaged in the so-called "Battle of the Atlantic" to harass and destroy British shipping. With better escorts of the Destroyer Class, however, German U-Boats have begun to take heavy losses. Lt. Werner (Herbert Grnemeyer), has been assigned as a war correspondent on the German submarine U-96. He meets its captain (Jrgen Prochnow), chief engineer (Klaus Wennemann), and the crew in a raucous French bordello. Thomsen (Otto Sander), another captain, gives a crude drunken speech to celebrate his Ritterkreuz award, in which he openly mocks not only Winston Churchill but implicitly Adolf Hitler as well. The next morning, they sail out of the harbour of La Rochelle to a cheering crowd and playing band. Werner is given a tour of the boat. As time passes, he observes ideological differences between the new crew members and the hardened veterans, particularly the captain, who is embittered and cynical about the war. The new men, including Werner, are often mocked by the rest of the crew, who share a tight bond. After days of boredom, the crew is excited by another U-boat's spotting of an enemy convoy, but they soon locate a British destroyer. While the captain attempts to sink the destroyer, it sees the sub's periscope, and they are bombarded with depth charges. They narrowly escape with only light damage. The next three weeks are spent enduring a relentless storm. Morale drops after a series of misfortunes, but the crew is cheered temporarily by a chance encounter with Thomsen's boat. Shortly after the storm ends, the boat encounters a British convoy and quickly launches four torpedoes, sinking two ships. They are spotted by a destroyer and have to dive below the submarine's rated limit. During the ensuing depth-charge attack, the chief mechanic, Johann, panics and has to be restrained. The boat sustains heavy damage, but is eventually able to safely surface in darkness. An enemy tanker remains afloat and on fire, so they torpedo the ship, only to realize that there are still sailors aboard; they watch in horror as the sailors, some on fire, leap overboard and swim towards them. Following orders not to take prisoners, the captain gives the command to back the ship away. The worn-out U-boat crew looks forward to returning home to La Rochelle in time for Christmas, but the ship is ordered to La Spezia, Italy, which means passing through the Strait of Gibraltar-an area heavily defended by the Royal Navy. The U-boat makes a secret night rendezvous at the harbour of Vigo, in neutral although Axis-friendly Spain, with the SS Weser, an interned German merchant ship that clandestinely provides U-boats with fuel, torpedoes, and other supplies. The filthy officers seem out of place at the opulent dinner prepared for them, but are warmly greeted by enthusiastic officers eager to hear their exploits. The captain learns from an envoy of the German consulate that his request for Werner and the chief engineer to be sent back to Germany has been denied. The crew finishes resupplying and departs for Italy. As they carefully approach Gibraltar and are just about to dive, they are suddenly attacked by a British fighter plane, wounding the navigator. The captain orders the boat directly south towards the African coast at full speed. British ships begin closing in and they are forced to dive. When attempting to level off, the boat does not respond and continues to sink until, just before being crushed by the pressure, it lands on a sea shelf, at the depth of 280 metres. The crew work desperately to make numerous repairs before running out of oxygen...Das Boot is a 1981 German epic war film written and directed by Wolfgang Petersen. It has been exhibited both as a theatrical release and as a TV miniseries, and in several different home video versions of various running times. An adaptation of Lothar-Gnther Buchheim's 1973 German novel of the same name, the film is set during World War II and tells the fictional story of U-96 and its crew. It depicts both the excitement of battle and the tedium of the fruitless hunt, and shows the men serving aboard U-boats as ordinary individuals with a desire to do their best for their comrades and their country. The screenplay used an amalgamation of exploits from the real U-96, a Type VIIC-class U-boat. Development began in 1979. Several American directors were considered three years earlier before the film was shelved. During production, Heinrich Lehmann-Willenbrock, the captain of the real U-96 and one of Germany's top U-boat "tonnage aces" during the war, and Hans-Joachim Krug, former first officer on U-219, served as consultants. One of Petersen's goals was to guide the audience through "a journey to the edge of the mind" (the film's German tagline Eine Reise ans Ende des Verstandes), showing "what war is all about". Produced with a budget of 32 million DM (about $18.5 million), the film was released on September 17, 1981, and was later released in 1997 in a director's cut version supervised by Petersen. It grossed over $80 million worldwide between its theatrical releases and received critical acclaim. Its high production cost ranks it among the most expensive films in the history of German cinema. Rotten Tomatoes consensus states "Taut, breathtakingly thrilling, and devastatingly intelligent, Das Boot is one of the greatest war films ever made.". The film was ranked #25 in Empire magazine's "The 100 Best Films Of World Cinema" in 2010. At the 55th Academy Awards, Das Boot was nominated for six awards, including Best Director. To this day, it holds the record for the most Academy Award nominations for a German film. In late 2007, there was an exhibition about the film Das Boot, as well as about the real U-Boat U-96, at the Haus der Geschichte (House of German History) in Bonn. Over 100,000 people visited the exhibition during its four-month run.I am not sure how many times I have seen "Das Boot", but I have seen it a few times but not in the Directors Cut version which I saw this time around, a version that runs for over three hours. This film is still to this day one of the finest german films I have ever seen. It so well directed, well acted, well written and well edited it still blows your mind in 2017. Yes, theres some wobbly green screen moments, but for example the detail level of the submarine interior and as well the exterior is of the highest standard. Then again with that budget Wolfgang Petersen managed to get, I wouldnt expect less. Petersen has portrayed the german crew as human beings participating in a war with anxiety, fear, homesickness, boredom, apathy, terror, sadness and horror while they are trying to obey the ideology of the government under which they serve. Not like mindless war hungry Nazis. Its hard to not sympathise with them while on their impossible missions. Time is given to truly develop the characters and that adds so much to the film. I truly like that. The pacing is slow, just as slow it is to wait and wait and wait for something to happen on a submarine mission. Petersen has also managed to shoot the film in a cramped confined submarine space and its spectacular how well made it is. Jrgen Prochnow is at his prime and delivers such a believable performance its a wonder he didnt win an Oscar. "Das Boot" is a true classic. Its an intense, gripping, authentic, dramatic and emotionally draining film. Trivia: The bulk of the film's $15 million budget was spent on constructing U-boats. Specifications for the original Type VII-C U-boat were found at the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry. The plans were taken to the original builder of the subs, who was commissioned to build a full-sized, sea-going replica, their first such assignment since the war ended. A second full-sized model was built for interior filming.Because the original TV mini-series was severely criticized in Germany for portraying World War II Germans sympathetically, the producer greeted the first American showing of the film at the Los Angeles Film Festival with great trepidation. They weren't sure how a former enemy nation in that war would react to the film, especially in a city with a large Jewish population, and their fears were reinforced when the audience applauded the opening caption saying 30,000 of 40,000 German men that went into war in submarines didn't come back. However, when it ended, the audience gave the film a standing ovation in appreciation of the artistry of the filmmakers.The cast was deliberately kept indoors continually during the shooting period in order to look as pale as a real submarine crew would on a mission at sea.To help his actors convey the claustrophobic conditions found on a real U-boat, director Wolfgang Petersen insisted on filming within the actual confines of the ship (scarcely wider than a man's outstretched arms), rather than removing the model's outer wall.The picture was nominated for six Academy Awards which was at the time the highest number of Oscar nominations ever received by a foreign language film. The record has since being beaten by such films as Life Is Beautiful (1997) and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000).With production costs of 31 million DM, it was for a long time the most expensive German movie ever made. It was beaten in 2006 by "Perfume: The Story of a Murderer" (2006), which, however, was a German-French-Spanish co-production shot in English.
