Really Good Movie! A very enjoyable watch. Good plot with good acting.
3/5. Silver Hawk is a very silly super hero film. It's not super interesting, but the action is really fun.
Michelle Yeah Produces And Stars In Slam-Bam Martial Arts Superhero Film. Not As Good As Her Usual Films, This Is Still An Entertaining Film From Start To Finish. Yeoh's Character Is A Wealthy Animal & Human Rights Activist Who Disguises Herself As Crime Fighting Vigilante The Silver Hawk.
A Decently Made Superhero/Vigilante Flick Which Gives Toby Maguire's Spider-Man A Run For It's Money.
I was hoping for a cult-classic style martial arts movie, but got a thin plot, bad voice overs, and a horrible super hero heroine. I should have known better, but I took a chance and lost.
It's very entertaining with beautiful stunts. half a star deducted for the cliche plot.
So you thought 'The Avengers' was a good comic book flick huh? well move over Iron Man Captain America and Hulk...move over for Silver Hawk!!!
Not too dissimilar from various other Far Eastern fantasy martial arts flicks, this film merely came to my attention due to the casting of Michael Jai White, Luke Goss and the gorgeous Michelle Yeoh. Its your basic comic book character action film but the hero is a heroine (Yeoh) and she isn't exactly a superhero but more like Iron Man, a person with money who fights crime in a nifty suit.
Well I say nifty suit, this suit simply looks like silver spandex with some silver painted goggles on her head and a long silver flapping coat. The thing that is so silly with this is everyone is virtually dressed in silver, all the bad guys and henchmen are in silver armour and everyone uses silver weapons or gadgets.
Surprisingly Jai White is a silent bad guy henchmen in this (looking like a certain character out of Mortal Kombat and with some Biggles head wear for some reason) and unsurprisingly Goss is the main villain. He is dressed in a Matrix style full length silver trench coat (indeed) with prosthetic silver metal forearms and looking like Richard O' Brien's brother. The action is tame but reasonably well choreographed, nothing amazing but it does the job with no strong violence or blood.
All of the film is pure comic book silliness which does look like something made for TV but a lot of Asian movies can look like this. You could almost think of this as a Chinese 'Batman and Robin' complete with fighting bad guys on bungee ropes, rollerblading ice hockey bad guys and Silver Hawk has her own Batbike type vehicle, its just not as camp. Well...that is until you see Goss in his skintight shiny silver vinyl costume towards the end.
Japanese Super Hero Flix are alway good
so idiotic even a child was saying what will happen next :S
Well-made and Michelle Yeoh is fabulous, but not a lot of action in this action movie
Kinda cheesy!! but still a fun and enjoyable martial arts super hero film!!
