Movies – The List Just Never Ends

A very interesting line up with a few foreign films thrown into the mix, Man On A Ledge was at the top of my watch list and it was worth it. I’m thinking about watching Act Of Valor even if it did get mixed reviews, but Hick seems really interesting. War of the Arrows is the foreign film I want to watch, and The Flower of War is a foreign film starring Christian Bale which Im assuming will be good. Journey 2 looks like one of those fun movies to watch on a slow day.

Review: Shinjuku Incident

A simple Chinese immigrant wages a perilous war against one of the most powerful criminal organizations on the planet in this sprawling action drama directed by Derek Yee (ONE NIGHT IN MONGKOK) and starring Jackie Chan, Daniel Wu, and Masaya Kato.

Jackie Chan is one of my all time favorite actors because he is good at what he does and sticks to it. This the first time I see a crime mob drama from Jackie Chan, and I have been waiting over a year to see this movie, and it is well worth the wait, probably the best movie that Jackie Chan has ever done and it involves very little of Jackie Chan’s usual Martial Arts. Many Chinese in the 90s immigrated to Japan for work, they were left to do menial work and ignored by main stream society. Jackie Chan or Steelhead started making the Chinese work together, and getting caught in the cross fires of a Yakuza war. Steelhead decides to work with certain heads of the Yakuza to help them in their war and it goes deeper then he thought possible. This movie was banned in the main land China because it was deemed too bloody but it seems to be a sensitive subject for the Chinese and Japanese. It is one of the best modern movie that I have seen come out of China or Japan, I pulled in by every moment of it.
