(br) wrote: Much like when Ants and A Bug's Life both came out at relatively the same time. This is a great battle of the studios. Only Tornado got about 1% of the budget that Twister received. Yet, If you are a fan of Bruce Campbell then this is a must see. Truly great in all it's B-movie glory. Bruce is truly a master of "getting it" on one take as two takes would mean more film used, thus spending more money.

(us) wrote: Most people may remember Michelle Yeoh as the Bond girl in 'Tomorrow Never Dies', but true fans know she started her career in movies many years before that. For me she is the undisputed queen of martial arts and kung-fu cinema. Movies like this one only prove my theory further. If I was to give this movie my personal rating I would probably give it a perfect score but I try to be fair and understand some people might not be into these types of films as I am. There are certain things in this movie that I know the average moviegoer might not get or like that much, so I'm going to try to explain them as best I can. The plot is basically about three police officers from different units, Michelle Yip (Michelle Yeoh) from Hong Kong police, Michael Wong (as himself apparently) as an air security quard and Peter Yamamoto (Hiroyuki Sanada) as a Tokyo interpol agent. They end up joining forces to stop a hijacking on a plane that was taking a mob prisoner back to Hong Kong. The three officers end up killing the prisoner and the hijacker who came to rescue him, making the three cops heroes. However what they didn't know is that the prisoner and hijacker have two brothers who want revenge for the death of their brothers and will stop at nothing to get it. All the characters have very unique personalities. Yeoh is a very tough cop who doesn't take any crap from guys, Wong is kind of goofy and jokes around a lot (sometimes too much) and trys way too hard the entire movie to get into Yeoh's pants. Sanada is kind of a depressing character, I can't remember too many scenes where he had a smile on his face. Then again it's understandable why since the bad guys decided to take revenge on him first by doing something that really takes you by suprise when you see it. I don't want to give away too much but it's pretty shocking and sad. The action scenes in this movie are pretty good for a low budget Hong Kong film from '86. The fighting from Yeoh is awesome as always. Her ballerina background really shines through when she kicks, fully extending her leg effortlessly to knockout bad guys. There are some cheesy effects that dumbed down the action scenes and made them almost laughable at times, most notably the gun fire. Seriously they look and sound like those cheap little cap gun toys I got at the dollar store when I was a kid. It's really easy to notice too because there is one scene in a night club where a guy just stands there spraying with a small machine for like a minute and half, I couldn't help but laugh a little. This movie is really obscure so chances are if you're reading this you're a fan of Michelle Yeoh (like me), and it doesn't matter what I or anyone else say about it, you'll watch it and like it. However for most people who probably don't know about it, if you can get past the obvious low budget effects and the annoying Michael Wong, this underrated movie is definitely worth a watch. For fans of pure action this delivers but you'll probably have to order the DVD off eBay like I did because you definitely won't find this at your local video store.

(us) wrote: Overrated. The symbolism between the characters is blended in an unrealistic setting. The longevity of the character development falls apart after the 2nd scene. If you want great story telling you have to be honest. It feels cheap. Cheap and deserted like the land Simba is trying to get back.
(es) wrote: This movie is the last thing you'd expect from comedy powerhouses like Kristin Wiig and Bill Hader, and it clearly demonstrates that they both have a lot more than comedic talent. This film would be classified as a "dramedy", and while it is indeed very funny, it's definitely more of a drama. The story is about the titular twins (Wiig and Hader) and their rocky relationships, both with each other and their respective love interests. They both do an excellent job with these characters, and their chemistry is so strong that you can really believe these two are siblings. Though the acting is the standout here, I also have to give props to an incredibly well-written script and competent directing/editing. The story explores family ties, depression, and love, and it smacks of authenticity in way that is very rare for movies these days. The filmmakers handle the heavy subject matter with an unexpected lightness, which makes the film an enjoyable experience despite the dark themes. I found it to be both depressing and uplifting at the same time. This is just a quality film all round: funny, poignant, honest, heartfelt, sad, and hopeful.... that is only made better by the outstanding performances of its leads (especially Hader, who really shines, and with whom I was totally impressed). This film was an unexpected but pleasant surprise.
