(ag) wrote: 2 Stars. I really wanted to like this but it's one hell of a mess of a film. Completely overlong without saying much of anything but hints of what was wanted to be said. The main trio of actors are of course fantastic in this but that's about as far as the goodness of this film goes. Well, the art direction and cinematography are nice to look at too, but didn't help the films cohesiveness.
(ca) wrote: An especially weak film without much substance, Nobody Walks is a dry and monotonous indie drama. The story follows a young filmmaker who comes to L.A. to collaborate on her film and disrupts the lives of the family that she's staying with. The plot doesn't go anywhere and has no point to it. Surprisingly there's a lot of talent in the cast, including John Krasinski, Olivia Thirlby, and Dylan McDermott. But despite the strong cast, there's nothing in the script to work with. Nobody Walks is an inane piece of trite that has no focus.

(ca) wrote: Although not completely terrible, most of which I was expecting, Halloween 6 is a pure example of why sequels shouldn't go this far. Mostly because the lack of character development and trying to decipher what the heck is going on is what makes this one so much worse than the others.

It was shot really well, despite what previous reviewers say. I liked it and am glad to see a piece of foreign cinema that probably had an impact on an area of the world I'm not familier with during a time I played with action figures in a sandbox. Some shit never changes. Teen drama, no matter what part of the world it comes from, is still the same shit. At least there were no Corey's.

(mx) wrote: Martial arts has always been a fascination to the world at least in the movies since Bruce Lee's foray into Hollywood. The same enthusiasm has been carried forward by Jackie Chan, Jet Li, Tony Jaa and the likes in their own style while adapting to changing times. Thus far, the primary combination has always been that of martial arts, modern technology and modern crime world along with a healthy dose of PG entertainment thrown in with occassional fantasy setups and animation. With 'The Raid: Redemption', it is taken to a whole new territory of gore, grit and overall graphic violence which marks a definitive shift in its target audience while putting the Indonesian movie industry in the global map of cinema along the way.Rama (Iko Uwais) is a rookie in the tactical police team which has been assigned to engage a crime syndicate operating from an apartment building. The team is led by Jaka (Joe Taslim) based on the intel procured from Wahyu (Pierre Gruno) and the operation was expected to be quick and silent. The mob boss Tama (Ray Sahetapy), his muscle Mad Dog (Yayan Ruhian) and brain Andi (Donny Alamsyah) along with a huge network of spotters (generally children), surveillance cameras and mercenaries was underestimated by the tactical team. The whole operation goes downhill as soon as it starts with body count rising and a never ending barrage of bad guys popping up in every corner. Rama and Wahyu have their own agenda amid all the chaos. Can they make it out alive?You get a similar scenario as that of 'Black Hawk Down' where a large and sophisticated military team go into Somalia for a quick and clean mission but end up losing many men and the rest scared and desperate to get back in one piece. 'The Raid' isn't about getting back in one piece but to pursue on relentlessly and at the same time playing for the masses every opportunity it gets. The graphic violence and the gore is on another level compared to movies of this genre. Even though there are a lot of gun battles, there are even more fist and knife fights which is where things get murkier. Skulls crushed, arms and legs broken, spines twisted, jaws cracked, torsos slashed and blood everywhere. Definitely not your average action movie. Considering the entire story is just the movie's namesake - a raid, even though the twists, revelations, human relationships etc. are all projected with the right intensity and strategically timed - it is the visual display of those martial arts combined with graphic violence that wins big for it. The action choreography is very innovative where the kicks and punches come in lightening pace and bodies are crushed in ways a normal viewer wouldn't have imagined. Complementing it is the excellent cinematography where each kick and punch is captured and projected with the maximum intensity for genre audience's pleasure. Generally the acting in Asian movies are a little overboard, but 'The Raid' makes sure the standard is very different from normal by maintaining the correct tone and the actors are to be commended for it. With a short runtime, crisp screenplay and enough twists in the script to keep the viewer engaged, the movie is a complete package for whoever can stomach the gore and violence.Not your average martial-art themed action flick, but every other can become a child's play after seeing this.
