China is in unrest, as the Republic falls prey to Warlords like Kahn Xin, who holds an entire province hostage to the opium trade—and destroys all who oppose him. Only the revered Wudang monks dare stand in Kahn’s way in order to protect the very soul of China. Among them is the Westerner, White Crane, a spiritual master of the martial arts and protector of the innocent. Revenge is not in Crane’s heart—until a mercenary army storms the temple and slaughters the beloved female Grandmaster Myling. Out of the ashes of the temple ruins, Crane rises—with vengeance in his heart. Crane comes upon Jane Marshall, a New York lounge singer and her gangster boss Bingo Quo. But it’s Bingo’s dangerous professional ties to Kahn that draw both Crane and Jane deep into the Warlord’s lair. Now torn between the spiritual Wudang teaching and the cold-blooded life of an assassin, Crane is about the cross the fine line between justice and revenge.

Ajeesh V (ca) wrote: Great!!!! EXcellent!!! One can??t recall whether any film having a bunch of ??children?? as the protagonists has released in the recent memory of Tamil films. Usually, the characters of children in Tamil films always speak more than their age; it has almost become a general norm in Tamil films that the children??s speeches belie their actual age. ??Pasanga?? breaks this artificial depiction and has shown the children as they are. The film is certain to rekindle in all the adults their school-day memories. ??Pasanga?? isn??t meant only for children, it actually makes very good viewing for adults. The story revolves around the trio of friends in Jeeva, Pakkoda and Kuttimani full of mischief and studying in a small town school. A new student, Anbukkarasu, is liked by both the fellow students and the teachers as well. Jeeva, the hitherto hero of the school, develops hatred towards Anbukkarasu. Things turn bad when the hatred spills over to their respective families. Anbu??s Uncle and Jeeva??s sister fall in love with each other, paving way for the cessation of enmity between the families. Even the marriage doesn??t break the ice between Anbu and Jeeva. Whether or not did they become friends again is what the rest of the story is all about. Jeeva, who played the young Jeeva in the film ??Katradhu Tamizh??, plays the major role here and has emoted well, especially with his expressive eyes that spew hatred in a realistic manner. The boy playing Anbu too has done an excellent job. Pakkoda and Kuttimani have done their parts admirably. The director has made all the children act in a casual manner without them being camera-conscious. Vega, who appeared ultra-glamourously in ??Saroja??, appears in homely costumes and has put in a good performance. Vimal, Vega??s lover has a boy-next-door look and emotes aptly. The first half is full of the typical mischievous dramas indulged in by over-enthusiastic school students. The subtle humour that runs throughout the entire length of the film ensures that the viewers don??t get bored. Only when the school boy feels for his inability to take part in the cycle race for want of a cycle does his father think about his own life in a serious manner. The story writer has brought out to the fore in an excellent manner how the ??differences?? between parents play major roles in the growth and the overall development of their own children. Dr. Balamuralikrishna??s song in the music of James Vasanthan leaves you asking for more. The picturisation only adds to the mood of the song. Cinematography and editing are quite good. Debutant director Pandiraj deserves kudos for not compromising with the screenplay and dishing out an enjoyable fare.

Serkan S (br) wrote: It is not a movie about "disarticulation", rather a "disarticulated" movie, a perfect case of how a s/k thriller is screwed up by a weak story, half-assed sub-plots, poor characterization, ill-defined relationships, and lack of any feel of tension and suspense. The result is a real bummer working neither emotional nor intellectual level.The director dared to take a journey into a loveless sexual realm of an affectless woman seeking violent pleasure from her liaisons. Such a bold attempt entails drawing an in-depth emotional character study, but it fails to do so. Rather, the director chose to plunge headlong into the steamy side, where we see Meg Ryan masturbating, exposing her boobs and buttocks, and having sex with our detective boy!!! The resulting erotic and emotional imbalance gives the movie the feel of a crappy soft-porn. What about serial killer shit? It's another disaster.. Without exception, all men with whom Meg Ryan associates may turn out to be the serial killer!! What a coincidence... The more ridiculous is that we don't know any of those suspects and don't have any snippet of idea about their motives to dismember all the hotties around!!! The worst of all, the sheer stupidity of the characters and the brainless way they are portrayed are another cinematic achievement.. Oh, almost forget the secret of a three of spades!!!To sum up, "In the Cut" is remotely convincing as a thriller, nothing but a sleazy work of its genre.
Ashley H (gb) wrote: Guilty as Sin is a decent film. It is about a female lawyer takes an accused wife-murderer as a client, but finds herself morally compelled to betray him one way or another. Don Johnson and Rebecca De Mornay give good performances. The script is enjoyable but a little slow in places. Sidney Lumet did an alright job directing this movie. I liked this motion picture because of the drama.

Jonas L (mx) wrote: A good plot, good casting and interesting characters. This movie almost has it all. Even Kevin Costner actually leaves an impression... if you count out the scenes where he should have an actual emotion but anyways. Robert Duvall and Abraham Benrubi is in my opinion the best performers in this movie. I do have to say that Kevin have made a realy good work as the director but as I said earlier falls a bit in the acting.I recommend this higly since it's a fantastic tale and has good characters.
Jason R (fr) wrote: Once again, the filmmakers dance around the themes of the Resident Evil games, intertwine some characters, and wind up with angry-face closeups, Matrix-style action scenes, and not much else. The storyline has reached levels of absurd well beyond human understanding, and that's saying something when you consider that the game's storylines are equally ridiculous. This whole series has been one missed mark after another, and it shows.
