Royal Shakespeare Company: Richard II
A monarch ordained by God to lead his people. But he is also a man of very human weakness. A man whose vanity threatens to divide the great houses of England and drag his people into a dynastic civil war that will last 100 years.

James J (mx) wrote: While it doesn't deal with immigration and racial prejudice as effectively as it could, seeing the relationship bloom between Bruno and Ignacio is quite a ride. The characters are likable and well-acted, if not a bit stereotyped at times. The ending is great, if a little jarring.

Let me just say that the budget of this movie isn't close to anything coming from Hollywood, but this film makes the most of what it had and is surprisingly better than I had expected.The story is nothing really original by any means. Human receives super powers, trains, fights crime, then takes out the villains. With the exception of the dragging beginning, the movie moves at a decent pace and never really gets all that boring.The "Mercury Man" character itself borrows elements from other movies. Mercury Man basically moves and saves the day in the style of Spiderman, but has the powers of Magneto, so instead of web slinging he pulls himself toward metal to move quickly. Of course, this is a Thai action film, so we need to have the Thai fighting style as well. So yes, Mercury Man, along with other characters, pull out the martial arts to provide more action. The fights are pretty good too. Almost up there with the likes of Tom Yum Goong.The acting is what you would expect from a movie like this. OK, not great. It was nice to see some females kicking butt though. 3 of them to be exact. Speaking of kicking butt, the action is pretty plentiful once you reach the 40 minute mark. There are a couple of small fights early on as well, so don't be disappointed.The CG in this film averages to be OK at best. At parts it looks pretty good and at others it doesn't. You do the math.At the end of the day, this movie isn't anything really spectacular, but for a superhero movie it isn't all that bad. If you stumble across this film, feel free to give it a try.
Solomon G (kr) wrote: Locals and cops are really mean for no reason to a completely innocent war vet just minding his own business...now why does this plot seem familiar? Because it's exactly the same as First Blood, the first of the Rambo franchise. It was lame then and, 30 years later, it's still lame. Hollywood desperately needs new writers.

Even as an eight year old I could tell that this was a terrible film and it made us rue our decision to see this over Dunston Checks In which was also available, thankfully we had some free tix & so it was only our time that was robbed.

JH K (jp) wrote: De todas las contextualizaciones y traslaciones de los relatos de Shakespeare, sin duda el mas brillante de todos. La mas epica de Kurosawa, la mano de alguien experto y curtido en esto del cine consigue atar con maestria todos los aspectos de una cinta inmensa, bella, retorica del cine, grandiosa, compleja, densa, y cuyo unico defecto es el inevitable ritmo narrativo japones que la hace poco accesible al gran publico. Bueno, ellos se lo pierden.Una de las pelculas ms hermosas de la historia y una de mis eternas favoritas.

Flawless performances and an eerie cinematography elegantly decorate this dark-toned, top-notch thriller exceptionally written and perfectly adapted from an unknown novel. Underrated British gem of 1964.98/100

Michael H (br) wrote: The special effects are surprisingly good and the human drama is surprisingly bad. Rather the opposite of what one might have expected. I thought the flooding of Manhattan was excellent. The cast was lifted straight out of old Commedia stereotypes: the lead lovers, the young lovers, the doctor, and Scaramouche in a wheelchair. A bit disappointing.
