"Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers" is very formulaic, seemingly borrowing all of its ideas from other popular 80's flicks, but it executes all of the cliches and conventions of the genre with skill and style.
"Above the Law" was designed to showcase the talents of Steven Seagal and it succeeded with flying colors. I'm not claiming that it's an exceptional movie, or even the most satisfying of actioners, but it was an excellent starting point as everything about it drew your attention to Seagal himself. I sincerely believe that if the spectacle or story were any more memorable, audiences would've talked about that instead of its star.
"Scorpion Thunderbolt" is so insane that you begin wondering if the movie is perfectly normal and you are the one who is insane. After all, anyone who would watch the flick in its entirety must have a broken mind...
When I read the premise, I immediately became intrigued. A monster-kitty starts eating criminals on a yacht? Hell yeah! Of course, any film buff knows that the cooler the premise, the stupider the movie. Did "Uninvited" fall victim to this? Yes, but it's FREAKING AWESOME for it. Okay, maybe I'm getting a little too excited. It's not 'freaking awesome' as much as it's 'freaking tolerable' because of the badness.
Nevertheless, I still believe that “Dragons Forever” isn't for everybody. Many will complain that it's slow paced or cheesy and they aren't wrong. You can definitely tell that Jackie and friends were trying to expand their horizons by playing against type and focusing a little more on the drama. But I don't believe they failed at it and it's not like they abandoned their kung fu roots either. There is still a fair amount of action and it delivers everything that I want out of a Jackie Chan action movie.
