The Long, Hot Summer torrent reviews
(kr) wrote: Predictable, cliche, cheesy, and despite all that, still quite enjoyable as a mainstream, sometimes music-video-like, action flick sprinkled with the usual Korean melodrama. Michael Bay would have approved at the showcase of South Korean air force and military effectiveness. I am very sure it will serve as an effective military recruitment campaign.
(es) wrote: Garbage movie. Pathetic acting, direction and plot which was expected but i atlest expected decent action. Didn't even have that. The intro scene is probably the only cool scene where JCVD looks good.Well a good effort for such a ultra low budget movie.
(gb) wrote: Just saw this recently at the SF Asian American Film Festival. I'm not going to pretend, I honestly didn't know very much about David Choe going into the movie. I've seen his artwork before, but didn't it was him or that he was so famous. Anyway, the movie was interesting, since his childhood friend made it, you get a pretty intimate look at his life. He certainly has been through a lot, and is quite a character. Wouldn't say this made me like him, but it was intriguing.
(es) wrote: I loved the realistic portrayal of the characters. The lead portrays pain so well without even speaking. You get the sense that she became strong enough to figure out what is right for herself in the end.

(ag) wrote: D'accord, Dolemite a peut-tre des vertus sociologiques, surtout au moment de sa sortie en 1975, et marqu des gnrations de rappeurs, mais le film de D'Urville Martin est si mal fichu qu'il est impossible d'apprcier rellement cette entreprise. Trop long, mme 90 minutes, scnaristiquement incomptent et ralis sans aucun sens du rythme, Dolemite ne vaut que pour ses combats hilarants, deux ou trois punchlines de Rudy Ray Moore et ses bad guys, bien plus intressants que son hros. La musique est ,comme d'habitude cette poque, bien plus russie que le film.

(au) wrote: This movie is surprisingly not what I expected. The performances were strong, the story was executed properly to create a scary and suspenseful mood, and the ending is a complete mind-flip. Definitely one of the best horror films I've seen.
(ca) wrote: Best spaghetti western movie ever made!
(nl) wrote: Quite enjoyable although I found the ending quite abrupt. The characters and their relationships felt real and sincere. I wanted to know more about the real story afterwards. I liked the pacing until the end but perhaps that was my level of engagement in the story. Overall, an enjoyable film.
