The film tells the story of Chinese guerrillas fighting for the Allied cause in Burma during Early in World War II, Chungking schoolteacher Lin Yang is recruited to help with the dangerous mission of protecting the Allied supply line from Burma into China. In spite of the danger involved, her determination to help is strengthened when one of her young students is killed in a Japanese air raid. Some time later, she is part of a group of Allied representatives departing from Lashio, on a bus traveling the Burma Road back to China. A bridge outage forces them to spend the night in a monastery along the way, and during the night they watch in horror as a supply convoy of trucks is bombed by Japanese planes. The timing and accuracy of the raid brings them to realize that either one of their group, or perhaps the priest in the monastery, is really an enemy agent

Ininteressant, pas tres drole, mal joue, mal foutu (les fonds verts sont legions), TICKER est nul. Mais toujours plus sympathique qu'une autre daube. Sa qualite? Steven, bien sur.

I now want that two-hours back.Not since "Showgirls" have I been so tired of something that I usually love. The plot is full of dead ends and holes, the performances are stiff and two-dimensional, and the shots and costume design are straight out of Anime.If you like Anime, then this film might just hold your interest... you know, because you're USED to your entertainment not making one bit of sense. Otherwise, give this one a miss. Unless, of course, you really are up for some awfully done historical horror, in which case have at it.... but you have been warned.

Bruiser B (es) wrote: The Rover is probably the most frustrating film I've seen all year. The film opens with the caption "10 years after the collapse", setting up the post-apocalyptic nature of this film, set in the Australian outback. Sound familiar? Well, Mad-Max this ain't. If I were to compare it to another film with a similar setting, it would be "The Road", except with none of the gravitas that film so expertly captured. We follow Eric, a character portrayed by Guy Pierce as he has his car stolen and stops at nothing to reclaim it from three apparently dangerous criminals. I say apparently because they are never actually shown committing any crime (except for the car theft) and never kill or injur anybody intentionally. We learn that one of the criminals (Henry) has a younger brother, played by Robert Pattinson, that was left for dead at the scene of the heist, however this unwanted member of the gang reappears soon after as Erics dim witted, redneck hostage. and the two of them travel on a week long journey to reclaim Erics beloved car and murder a lot of people along the way.The cinematography is fantastic - the shots and cuts are slow paced and beautiful. The acting is also a strong point, with Pierce and Pattinson both giving nuanced, emotional performances. But this all becomes irrelevant as the plot and dialogue are so sub-par. Things happen, words are spoken, but none of it comes together. The violence in the film is incredibly high-impact and I thought was very realistically portrayed and at times hard to watch, however one line of dialogue by Pierces character causes a huge contradiction in this regard. In my opinion, this is not a good film. There is no story, and none of the characters have any redeeming qualities. It wasn't absolutely terrible; as I said, the acting and the way it was shot are both very strong points, But they can't save the lack of story or engaging characters.
