I was very pleasantly surprised by this movie. It’s a pretty good flick to throw on in the background. Shudder has a lot of these East Asian crime films for some reason. After having seen most of them before this one, I can say that this one is quite different and unexpected compared to the other ones. The most impressive part of this movie is the cinematography. The camera work is just fascinating to behold and really Carrie the movie along. The plot itself or dialogue aren’t that particularly amazing to behold or revolutionary at all as far as this genre goes.
Broaden your horizons, dont listen to the negative comments on this site. It's a good thing shudder adds movies that arnt 100% horror. Plus most new horror movies are garbage anyway. This was a great movie! Lots of good stuff in it. Please keep adding more foreign films and never stop, theyre so much better and more creative than american films.
Really amazing action film about a group of assassins and their loyalty to each other. Some wonderful set pieces that just enhance the human story being told. A winner all around and I'm surprised there hasn't been an American remake.
Such a great film. Love the action. To is one of the best heroic bloodshed directors out there. Yeah, this isn't horror but it is genre.
Dorks: but it not horror! Me, an intellectual: No Johnnie To film can plausibly be rated lower than 4 stars.
