Audience Reviews for Mean Guns


Not a bad concept from Mr Pyun this time, a crime boss gets all his enemies in one place and holds a competition to win 10million. Thing is the competition is an outright killing match between everyone with no rules accept survive anyway you can.

This of course equals a mass of gun fighting and violence as baddies scramble to win and survive. Could of been totally cool but Pyun has gone down the light-hearted route and added a silly soundtrack of upbeat tunes along with a black/gallows type humour.

I like the idea of gallows humour but I just feel this could of been much better as an out n out serious hard action flick. Still its pretty good, has a few of Pyun's regular cast favourites and the always annoying mistake that a lot of action flicks suffer. A seemingly never ending stream of useless cannon fodder henchmen which always leads you to ask yourself...where did they all come from?, why are they such mindless sheep? and why are they all so ineffective?!.

Not a well planned movie and has a somewhat confusing ending, but worth seeing for all the violence!

Mostly just weird, cool action scenes though. Basically just one of those generic 90s action movies with people who are kind of famous.
