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).

In case of Aapla Manus, … Continue reading Aapla Manus (2018)

Forensic (2020)

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)

Confidential Assignment (2017)

Confidential Assignment is a very entertaining humorous action- thriller from South Korea. The story itself isn’t very original if you are familiar with classics such as Shiri but the movie’s execution is really gripping from start to finish. The actors do a convincing job, the action sequences are explosive and professional and the story has a tense and vivid pace with a few welcome amusing … Continue reading Confidential Assignment (2017)
