In the valleys of Appalachia, a battle is being fought over a mountain, the consequences of which affect every American; it's a battle that has taken innocent lives and threatens to take more. It is a battle over protecting our health and environment from the destructive power of Big Coal. Mining and burning coal is at the epicenter of America's struggle to balance its energy needs with environmental and health concerns. Nowhere is that concern greater than in Coal River Valley, West Virginia, where a small but passionate group of ordinary citizens are trying to stop Big Coal corporations, like Massey Energy, from continuing the devastating practice of Mountain Top Removal.

Instead of keeping Yen's character a focus of the entire film, we get a slow build to his introduction fully in the movie. Instead, we get introduced to the undercover cop and his relationship with the gang.You did get a good 'boss' fight in the end, but it lacks emotional substance with the uneven story building in the first hour. However, the grapples, elbows and knees are delivered so forcefully you wonder how any of the stunt guys made it out alive.While I've definitely seen better from Yen in past and present films, Flash Point is still enjoyable enough to see him deliver a few good one-liners and fists of fury to make a statement.
Ed Fucking H (gb) wrote: I went into this film knowing absolutely nothing of the man known as Larry 'Wild Man' Fischer. By the time of the end credits I was definently a convert of this man's extroardinarily bizarre, creative and primal music though. A true originator of Outsider music, throughout his career he worked with many big names (most notably Frank Zappa) but his career was always plauged by his manic depression and his paranoid schizophrenia. The film contains excellent interviews with Frank Zappa, Zappa's Wife, Dr. Demento, Wierd Al Yankovic, Barnes and Barnes, Devo, Family members etc. At times this film is very funny, and at other times it's heart breakingly sad. Definently a touching portrait of a difficult man, and one not to be missed for fans of outsider music. That being said, as with all outsider music, these songs won't appeal to the majority of people. While the music is emotionally engaging, often catchy, always heartfelt and sincere, less adventurous music fas will just feel alienated from it. If you enjoy boring msic like The Beatles or Coldplay or the fucking Eagles you probably won't like his music. Even still as a documentatry it is very well done and there are no complaints there. Recommended.

Greg S (es) wrote: A mysterious young buck visits a wealthy household, makes love to the father, son, mother, wife, and housekeeper and then leaves; all of them are lost without him and fall into separate strange tragedies. Another dry and dull, and inexplicably influential, experiment from Italian masochist Pier Paolo Passolini.
Allan C (au) wrote: William Powell and Myrna Loy return as Nick and Nora Charles in this second Thin Man film. Like most of the sequels, the mystery is really not the reason you want to watch the film. It's the witty banter between Nick and Nora that makes these films so wonderful and this one is terrific. Director W.S. Van Dyke returns for this second outing. and the film is also boosted by and early performance by James Stewart as one of the cast of suspects. Easily the best of the many sequels.

Mark S (mx) wrote: "When the Game Stands Tall" is a high school football movie with an overtly-Christian bent, more in the family-friendly vein of Remember the Titans and less like Varsity Blues. Unlike a lot of other Christian movies, this one generally avoids the hokeyness one normally associates with the genre, besides a silly subplot involving a father who's obsessed with his son's pursuit of a state record. Jim Caviezel brings his usual mix of stoicism and intensity in his portrayal of coach Bob LaDoceur, but the young actors who portray his players are good as well.
