What makes this film so unpleasant, and yet so riveting, is its honest treatment of the story.
Yang is very content to let the scenes speak for themselves, without feeling a need to use dialog.
A movie can’t get by on just flashy characters, a tacked on love story, and over-the-top dialog.
Just when you think you have it figured out, the movie forces you to rethink everything you just saw.
It’s not a classic by any means but it’s a far sight better than what I thought it would be.
An enthralling thriller that uses quiet tension, superb acting, and a sharp script to keep you interested.
This film throws so much at you it’s nearly impossible to take in.
For a movie that’s about a famous swordsman, we actually see very little of him.
There’s something offbeat and charming about Adrenaline Drive that ultimately offsets any lack of originality.
A great, action-packed thriller that has definite influence from John Woo, on both visceral and emotional levels.
As far as mindless action flicks go, I’d probably prefer this to some musclebound action hero spouting cheesy dialog.
For the most part, the fights are brutal and gory. But it’s good for the kitsch factor.
A condemnation of the hate and bigotry that religion at its most fanatical can bring about.
Yes, the book was much better.
A fun picture to watch if you’re in the mood for something twisted and “effed up.”
An “intelligent” film from the guy who brought you Evil Dead 2.
Chow Yun-Fat aside, the rest of the movie seems too unfocused, unexplained, and uninspired to be enjoyable.
This Russian sci-fi film is probably most comparable to Stanley Kubrick’s 2001.
Jackie Chan’s finest moment?! It could very well be.
To be honest, this film may just be the best film I’ve ever seen that deals with the subjects of grief and loss.
