Above the Law (Zhi fa xian feng) Reviews
Well worth a rental if you have the chance.
Cynthia block their car and gonna nab Yuen. Fan separately call to meet Melvin and Cynthia to show her who is the killer. Melvin spotted him and send killer Karen Sheperd to assassinate him in public. Cynthia is too late and chase after her. They had a good fight and Cynthia manage to kill Karen. Cynthia find Melvin in a hangar and is kill by a drill screw to her throat by Melvin. Yuen also come and angry he will kill his own subordinate. They fight and Melvin is losing. He fly the plane and Yuen grab the rope. He kill him in the air and jump down to the sea without chute. The plane crash and exploded. Yuen float and have bleedings (dead?)
The action is well done, choreographed real well. There are three good fight scenes, and a few stunt pieces. Definitely reeks of 80's action cinema, with the bad dub the only version I could find.
The movie's premise is interesting but the story is not. It drag in between fight scenes and ends with a lame plane sequence after a great fight instead of ending right there.
A solid piece of 80's action cinema, if you've already exhausted the films of Jackie Chan and Sammo Hung.
(1986) Above The Law (aka Rightings Wrongs)
(In Chinese with English subtitles)
Another plotless vigilante and revenge storyline overshadowed by some of the best acrobatic martial action action ever captured on film.
As an action film, this film gets 4/4
so, the weekend ended up late, got to see more DVD's, continue arranging my belingings, did my laundry, went to costco (didn't knwo i had one SO near my house), etc.......
righting wrongs ended up been a great movie, just as i remembered it from 8 or 10 years ago when i first saw it in some illegal copied chinese rental tape. Yuen Biao is at his best, both acting and doing action scenes, and being the stunt double of cinthia rothrock all the time. very good movie!
dang, around the world did even worse on its second week, sure, thanks to ppl like unadon! ;)
anyway, i decided not to see that farenheit thing... why do i need to go to the movies to get mad and frustrated about how that bastard rules this country and the global implications of his acts. i have read michael moore's books at airport's waiting lounges and already knew the whole story... and nothing irritates me more than seeing that those trues are out there and still half of the population supports him!!! definately not what i go to the movies for... i will watch it on video later, or after 4 or 5 weeks perhaps.
k, going to rest for another hour before i get up and get ready to work, hee hee... yeah, that is another subject that is giving me frustration, but let's not go there now ;)
