Bursting with gangsters, gambling and human weakness in general, Johnnie To's Throwdown is so strange and idiosyncratic that it's almost surreal.
The absolute best neo-samurai judo farce in town.
Throwdown may not be top-drawer To, but it's still a good introduction to a director who deserves attention.
The film is as beautiful as it is unpredictable.
A compelling remix of aesthetic showmanship and human movement.
A pleasant surprise, Adoring & filled with memorable sequences, Feels a bit rushed near the end but overall this is truly what a feel-good movie should be like
One of my favorite movies of all time, and i'm dead serious. Loved every minute of it, only someone bitter with life could dismiss this movie so easily.
simple plot...deep undertones..inspirational and uplifting message..another fine off-beat Johnny To offering...the scene running in the streets with the money flying about...one of the most memorable cinematic experiences ever..it all comes together for the viewer at the film's conclusion.
Not Johnnie To's most famous movie, but still a decent movie. People that know him for his action/gun ballets; Exiled, The Mission or Fulltime Killer might not enjoy this much. With a title like Throw Down and it being Judo based, one might think To is replacing his bullets with fists. But the fights are not exciting and just people flipping one another over their shoulders. But that is not what this movie is about. This is just another movie from To that is story driven. Except this time it isn't disguised with action. If you take the time to actually take in the story and the characters, To fans should enjoy this movie.
