773
Ong-Bak: Muay Thai Warrior review

"A superb central performance of Jaa, amazing fight and chase scenes and some of the most bone-crunching martial arts moves recorded on film. First-class action cinema."

A Very Long Engagement review

"A very stylish, lovingly crafted romance that carries Jeunet's signature, offers quality in every department and should appeal to a broad audience without feeling too generic or dumbed-down."

25th Hour

770
25th Hour review

"When I first watched 25th Hour the film left a bigger impression on me. Maybe it's because I hadn't seen that many films back then, maybe it's because time has blunted some of its initial impact."

Eden Lake

Eden Lake review

"Eden Lake is a prime example of British harshness combined with good old-fashioned horror, increasing the insanity notch by notch and delivering a great finale."

Suzhou River

768
Suzhou River review

"The moody and vibrant city shots, the stand-out performance of Xun Zhou and the mysterious romance all add up to a slightly grittier film set in the outskirts of a booming Shanghai."

One Take Only

767
One Take Only review

"In the end, Som and Bank is another very solid entry in the oeuvre of Oxide Pang and will have a hard time failing fans of the original Bangkok Dangerous."

Dragon Hunters

Dragon Hunters review

"The film is visually pleasing (though not technically perfect), packs an enjoyable sense of humor, great creature and world design and doesn't give you the chance to become bored."

Orochi - Blood

763
Orochi - Blood review

"The addition of the fantastical figure gives Orochi a somewhat novel feel though."

Kai Doh Maru

762
Kai Doh Maru review

"Kai Doh Maru will not deliver a tight story or well-developed characters, but if you appreciate a unique art style, moody atmosphere and technical experimentation there's plenty to look forward to."

Chernobyl Diaries

761
Chernobyl Diaries review

"Parker does everything to make sure that all the things are there for a good night of tense and thrilling horror fun, whether it will actually work depends on how you like your horror films served."

Swordsman II

760
Swordsman II review

"Swordsman II is a very typical film and definitely won't win any fans to the genre. It's pretty chaotic, all style and no substance and not the least bit interested in telling a coherent story."

Outrage: Coda

759

Eli, Eli, Lema Sabachthani? review

"For the slightly more adventurous film fan who doesn't mind a highbrow aesthetic and can handle some arthouse vibes, but also doesn't shun a bit of experimentation and genre influence."

Radiance

757
Radiance review

"It's not a film that reinvents the genre, it's not a breathe of fresh air, but it's a beautiful, respectful and endearing film that charms the whole way through."

Love on Sunday: Last Words

756
Love on Sunday: Last Words review

"For Western audiences the themes of Last Words may be quite sad and depressing, but Nagisa's acceptance of her nearing death paints a very different picture."

Crows Zero

755
Crows Zero review

"The film never slacks and even gives the viewer a nice look into the whole gang structure in between the fights, making it a little more than just another butt-kicking action flick. "

Afro Samurai: Resurrection

754
Afro Samurai: Resurrection review

"If you're up for some good solid fun and don't have too much trouble neglecting the grating dub and soundtrack, there is plenty of amusement to be had from this film."

30 Days of Night

753
30 Days of Night review

"A film that thrives on its setting and the atmosphere Slade manages to draw from it. The creepy vampires, the polished cinematography and moody soundtrack only enhance the icy dread."

Children Who Chase Lost Voices from Deep Below

752
Children Who Chase Lost Voices from Deep Below review

"That said, there is still plenty to be excited about. Shinkai serves you 116 minutes of visual wonder."
