The Troops on Vacation torrent reviews

Matty S (de) wrote: It is so rare for a filmmaker to change his/her style so dramatically, but Zhang Ke Jia has made a completely unexpected film. This film has been banned within the borders of China, but for some reason the country allowed the film to be released. This is a scathing and rage-filled film about the plight of Chinese working and lower class during the fast and turbulent change in Chinese government dynamics. Zhang Ke Jia has taken several real life tragedies and turned them into allegories to demonstrate the desperation created by a corrupt government that essentially has enslaved a vast majority of its population into servitude and dependance. The characters in this film have been pushed to their limits and literally strike out. To his credit, the graphic violence is not sensationalized or glorified. The violence depicted is shocking and disturbing. In some ways the storytelling is done in the manner of Wuxia Story with our "Anti-Heros" pledging allegiance to no one and out only to right wrongs. However, the truly disturbing stories presented fail to right wrongs -- they only manage to add wrongs to wrongs. Powerful and potent human film.

Troy K (kr) wrote: Boring and has problems, but still a good movie.

Ken C (kr) wrote: Grindhouse is uproariously funny, perversely disgusting and outrageously awesome. This film is an instant classic in the new millennia.

Wes S (kr) wrote: Decent. The editing was fine in some scenes and the characters are alright. Megaguirus's design is pretty neat and the battles and plot overall is great. Ending wasn't too shabby although the final fight could of lasted a little longer.

Stuart K (es) wrote: After the controversy Kika (1993) caused, Pedro Almodvar returned to making more serious films, and he turned out this melodrama which focuses on denial and identity. The film showed Almodvar diving into more serious material, even if it did leave some critics a bit cold, it has some good performances and has Almodvar's usual visual touches. Leocadia "Leo" Macias (Marisa Paredes) is a writer of romance novels, which she's written under the pseudonym of Amanda Gris. Her relationship to husband Paco (Imanol Arias), is distant and loveless, as he's stationed in Brussels and later Bosnia. Leocadia starts changing the direction of her writing, and starts writing darker and blacker novels, which alarm her publishers, who want more "Amanda Gris" books, which Leocadia is contractually obliged to do. Also, her family life isn't harmonious either, her sister Rosa (Rossy de Palma) and her mother (Chus Lampreave) are always bickering about something, but things change when Leocadia meets Angel (Juan Echanove), a newspaper editor who falls for Leocadia and her writing. It's a melodrama cut from similar cloth to Douglas Sirk's films, who was a big influence on Almodvar, but the film has a few plot pointers that would be reused in his later films, Leocadia's new, darker book has the same plot that Almodvar would use in Volver (2006). It's a pleasant way to pass the time, but it's all been seen before.

Christian R (au) wrote: A very good, tightly plotted film realistically depicting various slices of Colombian society. A wealthy absentee landlord looks to eject a group of people living in his property located in central Bogot's. The film shows the ingenious lengths the residents go to in order to come out ahead. Directed by one of Colombia's greatest writers it is highly recommended if you can get your hands on it.

Scott M (fr) wrote: I want someone to combine the Hunger Games and Battle Royale. That's the movie I want to see. This movie has all the wit and action, but none of the acting or characters. Kind of reminds me of all the bad Kung Fu movies of the 70's.

Fernando C (ru) wrote: if you wanna make a productive franchise like harry potter or the hunger games, this one is pretty far of that.
