I just can’t get enough of movies with ensemble casts, wierd plots, and a sense of continuity that refused to go from Point A to Point B.
This Russian sci-fi film is probably most comparable to Stanley Kubrick’s 2001.
As far as mindless action flicks go, I’d probably prefer this to some musclebound action hero spouting cheesy dialog.
I just didn’t find it to be the great thriller it was made out to be.
Yes, the book was much better.
The humor is wonderfully low-key and dark, the dialog is witty, and the performances are incredible.
Chow Yun-Fat aside, the rest of the movie seems too unfocused, unexplained, and uninspired to be enjoyable.
An “intelligent” film from the guy who brought you Evil Dead 2.
Why can’t more movies like this be made?
A great, action-packed thriller that has definite influence from John Woo, on both visceral and emotional levels.
A condemnation of the hate and bigotry that religion at its most fanatical can bring about.
A fun picture to watch if you’re in the mood for something twisted and “effed up.”
It almost feels oppressive and the movie’s attempts at humor aren’t enough to shirk that feeling.
My second favorite movie of the “Three Colours” trilogy, Red is not without its weaknesses.
To be honest, this film may just be the best film I’ve ever seen that deals with the subjects of grief and loss.
Jackie Chan’s finest moment?! It could very well be.
There’s something offbeat and charming about Adrenaline Drive that ultimately offsets any lack of originality.
