Debt Collectors (2020)

“No more hurting my fellow man”. Oh really. Then how come the characters in Debt Collectors “hurt” and spit like no one’s business. I mean male bodies are pounded like tenderized meat trolled out at a Four-star steakhouse. Whoever was in charge of the sound editing via many blaring punches needs a little recognition. Anyway, “Collectors” is a cleanly-staged action film, a pseudo-martial arts mantra, … Continue reading Debt Collectors (2020)

Beasts That Cling to the Straw (2020)

I have to agree with one previous reviewer: whoever gave this movie just 1 star clearly didn’t even watch it. ‘Cause, you know, you give one-star reviews to such crap as, I don’t know, Look Who’s Talking Too, Sausage Party or – to stay with recent releases – Cats or Extraction (aka Tyler Rake). You don’t give such god-awful ratings to a movie like this. … Continue reading Beasts That Cling to the Straw (2020)

Forensic (2020)

Forensic – A Gripping thriller yet feels dry. Cinematography is smooth and goes with flow of the narration, editing is crisp but nothing special, art and production design looks sophisticated. Action scenes are choreographed neatly. There is no forced songs and are of average and forgettable, like one of my friend suggested ever since Raatchasan released it has become mandatory to use loud and dramatic … Continue reading Forensic (2020)

Hotel for Dogs (2009)

Hotel for Dogs plays it very safe and sticks to a tried-and-true children’s movie formula. For a great many viewers the best thing about the film will be the cute and cuddly dogs that perform various tricks – their training is easily more impressive than the humdrum story, based on a hopefully more consequential Lois Duncan book. The dialogue lacks flair, the acting is expectedly … Continue reading Hotel for Dogs (2009)

Hit-and-Run Squad (2019)

In the testosterone-soaked world of Korean crime dramas, Han Jun-hee’s Hit-and-Run Squad puts a refreshing female spin on its story of police corruption and professional motor-racing, only to lose its nerve on the final lap. After the critical success of Han’s female-driven indie Coin Locker Girl, the film follows internal affairs officer Eun Shi-yeon (Gong Hyo-jin) as she is demoted to the low-stakes hit-and-run division, … Continue reading Hit-and-Run Squad (2019)
