(fr) wrote: This isn't Earth's greatest movie but I found it entertaining. I mean - you know it was extremely far fetched (it's a movie). Some of the acting was bad. But it kept me interested. Yes, Asami Sugiura running around completely naked for a good portion of the movie didn't hurt - but I would have kept watching even if she had clothes on. I think she took a difficult role and made the best of it. Most of the movie is in English but a fairly decent portion is actually in Japanese. Somehow you're still able to figure out what was being said anyway. It was kind of simple like that. I suggest if you have nothing to do and the movie is available to you - watch it.

(es) wrote: A neo Nazi in a mental institution falls in love with a black chick in a mental institution. How does that work out?
(it) wrote: At a walking pace throughout, this film explores many WW2 issues in a way few others do. Everything is done subtly and gradually grows, such that the sense of direction, the feelings towards different characters and attitudes towards rural Czech life change many times, taking the viewer in and delivering an excellent finale. As ever, a great plot based on a true story. Some great performances. Recommended as something very fresh!
(gb) wrote: Ultraviolet. More violent than professional wrestling itself. A few laughs - bathroom humor. All "problems" solved by hitting. Hitting even presented as fun - a good thing! The few women were nothing more than walking breasts - pure jiggle girls.(This is hysterical in that I recently found Jason's review of this for the Star Movie crew. Needless to say, he did not feel the same.)

(us) wrote: A lot of explosions and laser gun fights, too many probably, but this film does have it's charm. Tim Burton neglects his gothic side to make a colourful romp with a lot of big names. It goes to show what he can do if he gives Johnny Depp and his missus a year off. An unusual comedy sci-fi in that it avoids a lot of cliche's and it actually quite funny in places.
(it) wrote: More great Jet Li action. Maybe not as good as the first, but still better than a lot of other martial arts films.
(us) wrote: This movie was never meant to be good, which makes it the best goddamn kitsch movie ever.
(de) wrote: Bittersweet comic drama that knowing the actual background inspiration is at times uncomfortable to watch. Nicholson is fine but Meryl's is the performance that really stands out. A high quality supporting cast however isn't really put to good enough use.
(ca) wrote: I liked this one, but it didn't fully work for me. The performances were decent, but I wasn't fully engaged for the entirety of the story, there were definite lulls for me.The score was interesting though. Worth checking out for fans of Bowie, Takeshi Kitano, or POW films.
(ru) wrote: Routine Bava giallo. A variation on the Agatha Christie "10 Little Indians" storyline with a group of people isolated on an island, slowly being bumped off by an unseen killer (what, no black gloves). The millionaire hosting the party has sent his yaught and its crew to the mainland, the radio-phone is out, the houseboy is dead, and the launch is missing. No one here seems to display much intelligence and the characters are somewhat unlikeable (with the exception of William Berger's humanitarian professor who's secret formula provides the 'McGuffin' of this picture). Bava directed better giallos than this (BLOOD AND BLACK LACE, TWITCH OF THE DEATH NERVE) but it was worth checking out. I docked it one point for the annoying early 1970s "wah-wah" soundtrack, totally inapropriate for this type of movie.
