Derailed (2016)

DERAILED is another dark action film from South Korea that becomes hard to forget after it ends. It’s a film which is so real in presentation that it’s hard to believe it’s really just a fictional film. It has got a high amount of action and it’s shot extremely well, but it’s a different kind of action film which doesn’t intend to provide merely escapist … Continue reading Derailed (2016)

I was however pleasantly optimistic from the teaser releases. I am breath taken with … Continue reading Daredevil Netflix Webseries
