That was the understanding, I must say that John my favorite Director. All work just examined, except where I obviously knew that the film does not go down. But basically, all his famous work is viewed and not once. Of course, Hollywood he was strongly influenced by, and not a better way. He now dissembles, speaking in an interview, how to wish to return to America, to work with professionals, although he, after returning to homeland once told only a few works on the West did, indeed, worthy. And you know, it rights, personally I can see only a few work is not teeth clenched — this is a "Hard target" and"Without a face". But peak, of course, it is hon Kong work which is reviewed at first.

The original "the Hunt for man" I also looked up your time. Purely by chance about it, so C. in the Soviet years, this picture made a splash and a lot of positive feedback on it was. I have to be honest, the film is not particularly hooked. Yes, the story is interesting, plus has its own atmosphere, but the rest... In General General, of course, was interest in whether skills things to make the original story even better.

Plot. A famous lawyer find in bed with a dead girl. Of course, it absolutely not guilty, it is set, it runs, starts looking for blame... Well, you understood. Anybody have not surprised. All case just that the writers nothing tried to bring in a new that's all. Well, absolutely everything template. Here as is the description, so it happens. Personally, I heroes is absolutely not worry, I'm they are not pity, because I understand that all going to end like and ends in such situations. So to go into plot to look for some originality and unexpectedness like to look for oil under the carpet home.

Direction. Oh, even talking about not want. In other reviews already times wrote that feeling that was not John Woo, and do it student, and not the best rate. Do not seen it, so this is a strange description of "return" is very conditional. Pigeons, Beretta, slow-mo — Yes, it all is but the point then? Remember "Broken arrow", almost similar to the picture in which has everything chips, but it's chips for chips. Absolutely no interest in any of them or the actions of the characters you don't see. And because early works "trick" like this time and was. In the remember "b's" Wu in America, about the same level and here. And even worse,

Music. Medium. There is nothing to evaluate. The atmosphere is not creates a particular background there is no noticeable. But, in the same notice, why American cinema is so developed, because they really are paying attention to everything in the film. The Chinese, alas, so do not know, yet. Although, in the old days, for some reason, out...

Camerawork. Bad. Yes, there are beautiful moments, like shooting, jumping, but the chase, some action-Packed moments and mounting (!), well, just pluck out the eye at times. One frame jumps to the other of was one place now in another. In common with the sequence all not, and filmed not gorgeous. No no raisins or even a simple qualitative survey. Therefore, probably, most of all, I that the film is not like.

Actors. Did? Managed. But it whether part of the script then whether part of their skill to show something special, I personally to see could. The relationship between the characters are shown as weak and not really believe them. Probably the only thing I believe that relationships between two mercenaries, from which, indeed, was its characters and relationships. The others were like extras.

On the basis of the foregoing, it begs the logical conclusion that the film is not successful. Yes, it's true. But I sorry for the really great masters of their craft, with its style, romanticism, chips, religion. I can forgive and the second "Mission" and the same  Broken arrow, even the recent historical films about crossing battle of rock I can see at least my story is very bad in principle. But when you return home, over 30 million dollars off here is, having a vision movie. I don't understand why so bad. Yes, the film can be viewed. But I found it very hard though it was nice to see a more realistic approach to history, rather than in early works, which hero demolished the opponents packets.

Conclusion: John Woo made a very strange movie and big step back in his career. Much more than he ruined his career in Hollywood. It is not enough world such creative Directors from his opinion, theme, and atmosphere. But, if we talk about movie, nothing no, absolutely; any ideas, implementation, no characters. Film for the movie. To watch or not, you decide. I personally nothing lost time, here is honestly. It would be better "a Bright future" looked.

To all fans of the great Maestro John Woo dedicated! Just want to note that his new film was shot in the style of the old city fighters 70-80-ies, in which lots of shooting, guns and, of course, pigeons. According to the story of a successful lawyer is accused of the murder of a young girl. And now for him as thugs and all the police of the city. The hero, knowing that he was framed, he decides to personally know the whole truth to punish the real killer.

Of course. The plot is not brand new, but easily pretty nice. But still problem there, and it is that the main plot augmented secondary lines, which in the end, all turn in a kind of porridge and literally wash away the original appeal.

In the film do a lot of shooting and especially in the end, but all that looks very convincing. Lost a certain zest which all fans of John Woo at the time, amazed, surprised and delighted. In this time the fight scenes are done though technically correct, but they no one of the beauty of elegance and a kind of poetry. Take the same "Hired killer" (1989), who even now head and shoulders above the new movie. Of course, occasionally slip familiar notes vivid visualization, but in General, it looks like the film was shot not John Waugh, not the best student.

Unfortunately, the cast, though, and consists of star names, but the characters themselves look cold and lifeless. They do not believe not empathize. The film turns into a boring pastime, while the final picture will once again sparkle in the eyes of the viewer with bright colors. And let the beauty not lasts for so long and expressive, but still will be pleased to see a piece of the since last of the legendary city of insurgents.

I would argue that the film disappointed me, but still a small residue was left sad, though, to be honest, I do not regret that looked. All the same result this film is made up — I now wanted to review your favorite "Hitman", "hard boiled", "a Bright future", "Bullet in the head" and so on. Pleasant viewing.

I love the movies John Woo all without exception. In each is something that touches won't let go. Not even as the many believe a successful American period of his career I love. And here's a new movie, though I not just about it learned, but to watch were required.

The film begins without a special swing and takes us in the maelstrom of a conspiracy in which involved different influential people in including the police. Our hero, a well-known lawyer's office, con. To prove his innocence is his own. A little movie reminded the Fugitive with Harrison Ford.

Almost with the beginning of the whirlwind rushing by, accompanied viewing gunfights and daring fights. Action scenes staged on a Grand scale, with knowledge of the case. In fact, such a master as John Woo for different be that could not. And most importantly — these action scenes very much, which is not just gives us bored. The plot is not sagging we have no stop watching searches for the truth from the main character. The only mediocre moment in film — is one of characters after about the middle of the movie. How then monotonously and painfully sluggish it has been shown, though, and has shed light on some of the details.

Hard to blame the movie, but actually not because of that. A magnificent sight on which is not a pity to spend 100 minutes of your life. I completely incomprehensible criticism in relation to this picture. Yes, John Woo in the last century was almost no masterpiece ribbon but not really then how bad is it? Isn't have car chases, endless fights, interesting characters? Yes, the plot in the end was a little weak than I thought at first, but the spectacle is still awesome. So I will gladly put it in some cool Asian movies that I watched in recent years.

To view recommend. Drive and mega exciting spectacle you provided.
