BASEketball torrent reviews

Caesar M (us) wrote: Much in the same reign as Jackie Chan, Chow Yun-Fat and Jet Li, Donnie Yen action roles are arguably his most popular. Although when compare to the previous three most of Yen earlier starring efforts don't pack the same punch. Yen's latest sadly falls in that category whenever having to endure a muddle story before getting to the goods. Special ID is about a cop and his team of comrades going undercover in one of China's most ruthless underworld organizations to stop a gang leader. The premise and narrative beats are standard action film affairs without a change in formula; you have the undercover cop who's been on the inside for too long, undercover cop running the risk of criminals discovering his identity, protagonist not getting along with his partners, the superior officers who uses protagonist life for his own means, and by the end protagonist attempting to fulfill a personal vendetta. For a film that hardly strays away from familiar territory making sense of it all is more difficult than needed to be. Its plot is easy to understand, but distorted plot points never connected with one another in a seamless flow. A love interest for example is hardly touched upon even though scenes are entirely dedicated to hinting at it. Nothing ever becomes at the hinted romance providing moments of character development with the interaction contributing little. Another noticeable issue comes in the directionless writing. Tones drastically change on the spot from becoming a gritty action film to feeling like a rom-com at a moments notice. Characters like the plot itself are easy to understand, but the muddle story makes it needlessly difficult decipher. You'll have an understanding of the relationships, the characters, motivations, but even with a clear understanding muddle storytelling prevents any worthwhile investment to be made. This film never manages to find its own identity at the end coming off as a collection of several scripts each being drastically different each in their own muddle way. Donnie Yen is comical and naughty rascal-like acting in the film is passable, but for the emotional side of his character he doesn't cut it. A weak script is blame as Yen does his best with heartless dramatic scenes. When it comes to Yen fight choreography it appears brutal, but doesn't get across that feel of brutality. Every fight is restricted to being in a close a quarter and even when the action is taken outside of a building it plays strictly by the rules. Yen is the only actor who uses MMA techniques while the rest of his cast are kickboxers. This eliminates the tensity in fight scenes as Yen opponents have no idea how to counter his MMA and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu techniques. Even in the first few minutes of the film even though Donnie Yen literally fights crawling around the floor his opponent does not know how to counter Yen moves. The only time it mixes fighting techniques is during Yen fight with Andy On. Andy On using primarily Muay Thai and variation of several others fighting styles offered more elaborate choreography. Only when On fights against Donnie Yen do the fight scenes deliver on its brutality. Action scenes don't have the wow factor though they are well staged that provide the film the much needed energy. As for Andy On acting it's solid selling the idea he could go toe to toe with Donnie Yen. Jing Tian provides a pretty face and impresses with her agility and flexibility. Tian might be small, but her move set makes her believable and the film climactic action scene sells her in the action role. Her acting is good genuinely the often corny and cheesy dialogue sound as good as it can. Special ID delivers solid performances and solid action scenes, but in order to get to see those you have to endure the deadweight of a muddle and standard story. It plays by the rules in terms of narrative and action unable to find an identity of its own.

LA E (ag) wrote: I was fortunate to catch a screening of this film at The San Diego Film Festival, where it went on to win Best Picture. I'd loved Michael C. Hall's performances in Six Feet Under and in Dexter, so I was eager to find out what he could do with a comedy. He is every bit as nuanced here, playing Morris Bliss, as he was in his best Six Feet Under moments; fans will be pleased. The Trouble With Bliss is the story of a man who should be independent and grown, but who has somehow found himself stuck in time. While his childhood friends have moved on, he has remained in NYC's East Village, living with his father and generally puttering (and sometimes, bumbling) away his days. We come to understand, in time, that the death of his Greek mother, which occurred when he was 14, has more or less frozen him developmentally at that age. (No wonder he ends up in a torrid fling with a high schooler, played by Brie Larson.) As a teenager in an adult's body, he's still reading the literature he might have been assigned in high school (Anne of Green Gables); he frequents record stores rather than downloading CDs; he collects global destinations by marking them with pushpins on a map in his room--but he never travels anywhere. Even his closest friend, MJ (played by Chris Messina) is a Puckish, "class clown" type who seems to tell outlandish stories about things he couldn't have possibly done...or could he? Peter Fonda is a major standout as the straight man, hitting every line with deeply couched tenderness (couched, that is, in toughness) and depth. The final character that bears mentioning is the wonderful musical score. The all original Greek tunes had the audience in our theater clapping along. It really is wonderful, upbeat music--the perfect soundtrack for a road trip. And indeed, this movie is a sort of trip through Morris Bliss' life, at the moment when he is just about to transition through the biggest changes he's made since his teenage years. The Trouble With Bliss is funny without being gauche (a rarity in comedies today), thoughtful, and even moving. Think: Little Miss Sunshine where all the neuroses are New York City-centric. The characters made me smile as they strived for a bit of happiness and understanding in this wacky world. Recommended!

Kevin Orlin J (jp) wrote: When American producers saw Daniel Day-Lewis, they brought him over here with a huge contract and gave him a comedy script. He is brilliant, with microscopic precision, as in everything, and the movie does kind of linger in your memory, but the script is so very bad that he never did a comedy again. You should not miss his other comedy, though: Eversmile, New Jersey--deserves to be a noted classic, and isn't even listed on this site. You can get VHS tapes of it on ebay, though.

James M (mx) wrote: Bit of a mess. Not a bad two star but was expecting better. Some of the imagery was excellent and some genuinely creepy moments but the story was a bit muddled, some of the acting was unconvincing and it dragged. I also thought the child lead was one of the most annoying, unlikable characters I've seen in a long time. Looked dated at times and would be perfect for a remake.
