Critic Reviews for Black Mask
Poorly lit, crooked camera angles (that didn't match one shot from the next) make the film nearly unwatchable.
They needed to think this one through a little more before commiting it to film.
You could watch it on mute and still be blown away by the action bits.
Weak plot, no logic, and bad dubbing to boot. But "Black Mask" has one of the highest energy quotients you'll find in any action thriller around.
Audience Reviews for Black Mask
The storyline may not always be sterling in a Jet Li movie, but one thing you can say for sure: Once Jet Li starts rocking in his purist martial arts action, there are few more stunning practitioners. See this maybe a whole lot less for the story than to see Li when he starts to roll. What a butt-kickingly superior martial arts stylist.
This is such a weird movie and I've seen my fair share of weird movies before. Maybe it's the combination of stylized action, gore, british dubbing and 80s feel to it. I really wasn't expecting it to be what it was. Jet Li looks like Kato from the Green Hornet and more or less is the character. There's really nothing that interesting about the movie at all, everything in it has been done better in other movies. It should only be seen by Jet Li completists.
Cheesy fun, just avoid the sequel.
