(es) wrote: This is a well made, but relentlessly dark film. It stars Kelly Reilly("TrueDetective S.2"), Jack O'Connell("Unbroken") and Michael Fassbender. It's a horror-thriller about a group of young teenagers terrorizing a happy couple. It's done in a fairly realistic manner and is quite violent. It definitely stays with you after the film ends. For genre or Fassbender fans only.

We are introduced to Simon Grim (James Urbaniak), a garbage-man who has a beer for lunch and is the sole breadwinner for his household consisting of himself, his mother who does nothing all day, and his sister Faye (Parker Posey) who spends her time being the local go-to girl for sex.Into this family stuck in neutral comes Henry Fool (Thomas Jay Ryan) to rent their basement. Henry is a witty, self-absorbed, wanna-be novelist that refuses to work at anything else other than talking about his non-existent talent.To pass the time he establishes a friendship with Simon who is in need of direction and convinces him that he can be a great poet if he puts his feelings onto paper. In the meantime, Henry dodges his past while inadvertently making a future for both Simon and Faye but in a way no one could possibly predict.Henry Fool - Look, Simon, I made love to your mother about half an hour ago, and now I'm beginning to think that maybe it wasn't such a good idea.Henry is a charming ass that reminded me of coffeehouse poets at the local level who are only there for the scene. He is aptly named as are the Grims. The acting is very good but the script and direction are better. Hartley knows what he wants to show you and you get it in all of its crass splendor. This film is not for everyone but it does take a small slice of dead-end lives and shows you what can come when unexpected change is allowed to flourish. As a commentary on celebrity and the effects thereafter, it does score.And the final scene was splendid.Henry Fool - It's a philosophy. A poetics. A politics, if you will. A literature of protest. A novel of ideas. A pornographic magazine of truly comic book proportions. It is, in the end, whatever the hell I want it to be. And when I'm through with it it's going to blow a hole this wide straight through the world's own idea of itself. They're throwing bottles at your house. Come on. Let's go break their arms.PS: My wife hated this film and thought the sequel was better. Personally, I also thought the sequel was better but this wasn??t bad. The review will be coming next week
(br) wrote: It's in kind of an awkward spot really. It's less comedic than most of Chan's other movies, and not quite as violent as the previous Police Story movies. I saw it in theaters as a kid and didn't enjoy it as much because it was more serious than the other Chan movies I had seen before. Years later though, I can say it is much better than I had remembered. There is tons of action and probably some of the most dangerous stunts to show up in any of his movies. Seriously, the entire sequence on the moving train and helicopter as well as a motorbike had to be life threateningly dangerous. It was all worth it though as this is one of the more action packed Jackie Chan movies you'll see. It's not quite as good as the first Police Story, but I'd go so far as to say it's as good as the second.

I laughed when Efren or whatever his name was got lynched, because I'm a noticeably bad person, but then I cried at the end because the horrible picture quality mixed with black and white strained my eyes a lot.
