Justin P (gb) wrote: This movie was a heartfelt and genuine story, where two kids are forced to to live independently when their mother goes missing. The single mother is an immigrant woman who is trying to make a successful living and make sure her American-born children live happy lives. She falls trap of one of those 'get rich fast' schemes that targets immigrants and low-income families. The story then unfolds from there. Especially for their age, the children are definitely great actors. The only thing I didn't like about the movie was that I felt it ended to early. You get so into the story that you want to see more. But it does get you thinking, and I like that. Definitely worth checking out.
Alejandro R (mx) wrote: A very heart-felt and authentic film made even more authentic by the fact that it's based on a true story. As far as biopics go, this film seems to take the genre to another level, as the creator and main actress tells the story of her family's most tumultuous period beginning just two weeks after coming to Queens, NY from Columbia. The ending credits tell it best so I won't spoil it, but what I will say is that one of the film's best qualities is the raw expression of the dance between suffering and hope, failure and success. With each win no matter how small there was always the potential for great loss always gnawing at this family. The mother's love and commitment to her children was the glue that kept them together through some immensely trying times. If nothing else, the film is a testament to the enduring power of family love and a courageous spirit.

Jason J (fr) wrote: This sequel (the 2nd in the trilogy) is actually an improvement of sorts on the first movie with more ridiculous OTT action and gore. On saying that though it's obvious that the filmmakers were desperately trying to pad out the movie and prolong the running time by adding some blue sepia tinted flashback scenes from the first movie and some karate dojo training stuff. It seems to me that Tsurugi has mellowed out a little too and the hilarious face gurning he did before when psyching himself up has been toned down. Instead he resorts to some deep gutteral sounds as if he's trying to produce a large phlegm from the back of his throat!!! The violent fight scenes are brilliant with great choreography. You just have to see the part when he punches somebody in the back of his head so hard the unfortunate guy's eyeballs come out! So hilarious! Once the plot has been laid out, the action is relentless with the mafia attacking Tsurugi at a ski resort, a sauna and use a femme fatale to bed him so that she can stab him. There's no peace and quiet for the poor guy! Prepare to suspend your disbelief during the police station breakout as Tsurugi not only manages to kick everybody's ass in the station but he also smashes part of a solid wall with his legs no less so that he can jump through a window which has bars, fall down onto a parked car before escaping in a getaway vehicle. The final fight at the mafia's HQ is also extremely good and exciting with Tsurugi showing why he's a one man killing machine. It's obvious for those that like their old school anime that you can see The Street Fighter's influence in the Fist Of The North Star movie as it displays the same kind of bloody violence. The character of Ken is basically Tsurugi.Sonny Chiba is superb as Tsurugi and pulled in a better performance than the previous movie. Even though he's still an anti-hero, he's definitely more likeable than before. I just didn't like his female side-kick at all. She was incredibly annoying. It was good to see Masashi Ishibashi return as Tsurugi's mortal enemy who he thought he had killed. Their duel was a bit disappointing, I expected it to be longer and more interesting than it was. The big boss in this movie isn't that good plus he doesn't even have the image of a mafia boss. He has a dumb name in Don Costello and is quite a weak character!Overall, Return Of The Street Fighter was an entertaining non-stop OTT movie if you like your action thick and fast.

Alex r (kr) wrote: Drive Hard is a film that had an interesting concept for a film, one that was quite great to be honest. This is a film that should really have been something great, but as a whole, does it standout? Not really. The film starts off fine, but it quickly runs out of effective ideas to really make it standout. This had the potential of being a great action film, but something was missing to really make it a worthwhile film to watch. I really wanted to enjoy the film, unfortunately, it was underwhelming and mediocre. The film wasn't awful, but it lacked anything to really grab your attention. Drive Hard could have been a fine low budget action film, unfortunately, it never becomes anything memorable or entertaining for that matter. If the script would have been better thought out, and polished up a bit, then maybe this film would have been something great, as it is, it's a pretty dull affair, and it's a shame because the film had a very good premise, unfortunately the execution was sloppy, and it ended up being a bland film that simply didn't deliver. Drive Hard should have been better, but it quickly goes all over the place, and tries far too hard at being a well executed action, which it's not, and it loses track of what it tries to do by compressing too much into a short run time, add to that plenty of genre clichs, and you have a film that is not that interesting. This could have worked very well if the script would have been reworked, instead it ends up being a mediocre film that tries to be far too ambitious than it is. A forgettable film that isn't worth revisiting again.
B W (gb) wrote: That was nearly 90 minutes I won't get back. Never would have guessed it was a subtitle Ben Affleck movie, but that aside, it was slow and generally confusing. Sure, I understood he gist of it, but there was relatively only 15-20 minutes worth of story (and especially dialogue) in this 113 minute film. Even for a subtitle movie, there was little to no dialogue. The movie was the equivalent of reading a textbook, or instruction manual... dull without a lot of information. I read some reviews about the movie winning some awards because it is meant to focus on the emotions rather than words/dialogue... well, the only emotions I kept having are: impatience & boredom (when will this be over? how much more time is left?), slight confusion (the baby, the priest, the connections of the characters, etc.), and a large dose of irritation and aggravation.

Still, there are some laughs to be had, I'd just suggest a double feature of this and the other film, but make sure to end strong with the other movie.Rental for sure, with the right group of people.
