"Dragonball Z: Resurrection F" was f@cking awesome, although I have to admit that part of me suspects I'm critiquing the experience more than the actual movie. I saw this in theaters with an energetic crowd and their enthusiasm was contagious.
"Pound of Flesh"- starring Jean-Claude Van Damme- wasn't a very good movie...It's not terrible though, even occasionally offering a good piece in a mostly subpar puzzle. I'd say that the arc of this review is: "It could've been better...".
The problem is that "The Empire Strikes Back" had better editing, cinematography, direction, dialogue, acting and everything. It set the bar so high that I have to be careful not to sound too negative when speaking of the third entry, as "Return of the Jedi" feels so inferior in comparison- even though it's pretty good in almost every way.
"The Empire Strikes Back" is the perfect continuation of the "Star Wars" saga, fleshing out the Universe and developing the characters, while offering superior effects, cinematography, writing, acting and direction.
"A Force of One" has a pretty cool, if a bit absurd, concept going for it. Who doesn't like the idea of Chuck Norris training police officers to fend off a cop killing serial killer, while he prepares for a climactic fight with Bill 'Superfoot' Wallace?
Amusingly, ripping off Indiana Jones probably made "Magnificent Warriors" into the most original kung fu flick since...ever...I expect characters to introduce their fists to the faces of their enemies, but I don't expect aerial combat, fedoras and explosive car chases.
If you are interested in watching "Vengeance is a Golden Blade", please accept that this is a drama which focuses more on characters instead of action- even though we do get quite a bit of swordplay in the process.
