The Warrior
The Warrior (2002)
2 months ago via Flixster

This is an epic re-telling of the Kurosawa masterpiece Seven Samurai. This Asian (South Korean/Chinese) film made good use of that figure, with sometimes disturbing, but very well done fight scenes and in general, beautiful cinematography. This is a journey from start to finish. For all 2 1/2 hours, the group is journeying, and survives much longer than they expect. The characters were tremendously developed. Even peasants getting killed made you sad, because he or she had been given some screen time and you got to know them somewhat. Later on, it's an emotional rollercoaster, as familiar faces start to go down en masse in one final, epic battle.

The Legend (Fong Sai Yuk)

The lightest of all Jet Li films - a mix of ridiculous 'wire-fu', farce, and romance. As Mother Fong, Josephine Siao displays a remarkable ability to be imperious and goofy at the same time. Highly recommended.

Last Man Standing

Smartly-directed action picture stars Jeff Wincott as a cop who risks it all to stop a group of dirty policemen who have worked out a look-the-other-way deal with a drug czar. Great action sequences and stunts are enhanced by a better-than-average screenplay and performances.

Lockout
Lockout (2012)

I see this Euro sci-fi-action brought Guy Pearce shifting into action-man mode.
Action specialist and co-writer/producer Luc Besson has fashioned another slick thriller - with a twist of sci-fi - to rank alongside this Transporter franchise; while a buff Pearce does his best in a role more suited to Jason Statham. Fans of John Carpenter's Escape from New York will immediately recognise the premise although its safe to say that Snow is no Snake Plissken!
Maggie Grace is as good as ever as the damsel in distress and the supporting actors do a bang up job as well. Guess what this is one of three Grace-Besson films including Taken sequels.

Great family and laughs of superheroes film since Sky High. Chevy Chase is so hilarious that makes me laugh when he's trapped in his 'Outdoor Survival Simulation' room where a fake skunk gives out a foul-smelling fluid onto his face.
