    Spiral: From the Book of Saw

    ★★½

    A welcomed new 'Seven' approach to the familiar 'Saw' sequel. Here, the cop is the hero and other cops are the victims. While the twists are telegraphed, the overall mystery and characterwork is good for the genre. And the traps are still shocking. Rock makes for an uneven protagonist, but he should pursue 'dramatic' roles even further. Worth watching for fans of the franchise, but not nearly as memorable as the surprise original.

  • Kill Zone 2

    Kill Zone 2

    ★★★

    With more drama than expected, the story could have been more interesting. That said, it's welcomed to have a 'story' in the first place with a martial arts flick. There is some exciting style and a few bad ass action moments, which would have been more welcomed throughout. The final fight is the main highlight, mixing kung-fu and Muay Thai, as well as having emotional stakes. Worth watching for fans of the genre.

    Flash Point

    ★★★

    The Guy Ritchie vibing opening with B&W freeze-frames, silly comedy, and John Wick pastel neons doesn't quite paint the picture for what's in store. What follows is an uninspired martial arts version of 'Infernal Affairs' that's light on the action until the 3rd Act, when John Woo gun ballet fills the frame with chaotic energy. The build-up to the grand finale starts with a foot chase and market fight that's worth the wait. The epic climax is a gonzo Donnie Yen spectacle, bouncing from style to style, including MMA ground grappling and Muhammad Ali inspired boxing.

    Godzilla vs. Kong

    ★★★½

    Abandon all logic ye who enter here... What we've got here is a mash-up of 'Journey to the Center of the Earth' & monster movies. Focused on spectacle with a few rounds of WWE-style beat-'em-up, including a fantastic pastel neon bout in Tokyo, and an over-the-top 'Pacific Rim' mecha fight, there's still some character to enjoy. While it's hard to replicate the emotion of the B&W original 'Kong', there's enough heart to root for the 'King'. Really, it's the big-time action that fans expect, and this edition delivers on that promise.
