(ag) wrote: One line summary: Ruka is out to avenge her father's death at the hands of crooked cops; so is her adversary, Key Man.One star of five; three black holes (opposite of stars) for cinematography, special effects, and acting.Cinematography: 2/10 Often dark with insufficient contrast and soft focus. Framing mistakes, jumpy camera work. Panning with blur. Blood on the lens, too many times. The blood here is Texas Longhorn orange; that is, not very red. Yellow and orange filters applied for no apparent reason.Sound: 2/10 Weak. The incidental music is often amateurish in composition, poor in quality, and hollow sounding. At times it seems the actors are not miked properly. There was a significant number of lines spoken in Japanese that had no related English subtitles. This did not help following the plot.Acting: 2/10 There are too many actors with total lack of affect: stone faced and silent without much body English. The protagonist is the prime example. Also, her fight movements are often out of synch by one to five seconds, as if reacting to off-camera cues.Screenplay: 3/10 Gallons of blood sprayed, followed by zero landing on actors' clothes. This repeated a dozen times or so. Acquaintance with the laws of physics and logic is out the window. Given that, we're down to special effects and character motivation. The FX were really bad, so motivation would have to drive the plot. Motivation is fairly well lost as well. One segment goes to another with little or no explanation. The plot is more of an archipelago than a road from here to there.Special Effects: 2/10 Cheesy blood spatter. Enough blood to float small boats. Badly done fake chopped off body parts. Blood pipes made obvious when a limb or neck or finger is sliced off.
(de) wrote: Absorbing documentary about Iraq's only heavy metal band, Acrassicauda, and their struggles in the post-Saddam world. Never gets preachy and never losses focus on it subjects and the tragedy of the war that goes beyond statistics.

(ru) wrote: I loved the dark humor in this film juxtaposed against the politics of the period; it brought to light the absurdity of racism and inequality for women during the 1950's. It is a quirky yet intellectual expose' of the times. Melanie Griffith's performance is outstanding; she pulls you into her character, gripping your emotions every step of the way. Lucas Black is intense and convincing in his innocent, idealist view of the world. Rod Steiger gives a stunning performance with a witty voice of sanity in an insane time.
(br) wrote: what are we saying to family? No stability. central plot is okay, but again... maybe that is the point. we must fight for our family and the key to all of our lives is how unstable life really is.
(br) wrote: Stark, brutal and at times downright depressing. Alan Clarke's first of only three films was his most powerful work. 'Scum' was adapted from the Roy Minton's banned TV production and is honed even further for the big screen. Remains Ray Winstone's finest performance and has only dated in endearing ways. The use of strong but realistic language/violence became the vital essence of such a risk taking drama.
(gb) wrote: This is another movie from The Mill Creek Chiller Movies 50 Pack. No real big stars in this one. May Britt plays in her next to last movie. A definite B-Movie heading towards the C Bracket real fast. One of those whose the killer movies where just about everyone is a suspect. A little bit of a twist at the end, that should be guessed about 30 minutes into the movie. The movie drags and drags on, lots of places where the credits should roll but don't. I can only give this one 2 stars. You have to really be at the edge to watch this one.

(de) wrote: The first half hour wasn't bad, but then the film free-falls into overly rushed stupidity. Can't believe a film this bad could have been based on comics worked on by Frank Miller.
