(ag) wrote: In what could have been so pretentious and dragged out, LITTLE CHILDREN is slow, articulate, uneventful but a character study. Kate Winslet gives a realistic portrayal of an unhappy, plain wife and mother searching for her spark in life. The character of Sarah herself, even all of the characters, is unlikable and almost blah. But it is Winslet's performance that gives sympathy and humanity.

La pelculas es corta por lo que no se puede introducir a los personajes, cuando mueren queda la sensacin y quien era ese realmente?. Los efectos especiales estn bien al igual que las actuaciones. Recomendable.
(br) wrote: Great 80's war flick, focusing less on the battles and more on the training. Overall it's similar to the fashion of Full Metal Jacket, doing a good job of portraying both the training and the action, although the action in this one falls a bit short. We have the traditional and by know clich (C) us of old main character who is a badass, and the group of new recruits that disobey every order, have no respect of their superiors, and don't seem like they want to be there at all. Of course our Gunny whips them into shape in a amusing and interesting fashion, that doesn't bore. Having his clashes with his own superiors and ex-wife make for a good side story, so we are not stuck in the camp the whole time. When they reach the action it only takes up about 35 of the final minutes, in classic 80's action movie style, with gung-ho Americans taking down their enemies in a amusing, but accurate and realistic way. It's also nice that they focus on a small scale operation, one that I don't know if it happened at all. The action is pretty good, with good effects all around and toned down gore to say the least. Overall the acting and performances are all very good, the pace is good, and so is everything else. Has some funny moments to make you laugh too, and is a believable and well done story. Don't know how I didn't find it sooner.

(es) wrote: Revenge! Ninjas! And the best use of caltrops and marbles as an attack method I have ever witnessed. This little 80s gem from the illustrious Cannon Group starts out with a brutal and never explained slaughter of a man's family by ninjas, who are then easily defeated with guns. Interestingly (or not), the ninjas in another Sh Kosugi movie are easily mowed down by bullets. Only his son and mystical mother survive to move to Utah.. er.. Los Angeles to unwittingly open up a heroin den/fancy doll shop. After that, the plot can best be described as: "Where's my money?" "Put on some pants!" "You'll get your money!" "Get that kid!" "Get that old woman!" "Send in the Village People!" "He killed my mother! Where's my son?" I never could quite figure out why the white man ninja was so angry at the drug dealer who was going to get the money for the heroin dolls (new from Mattel), and why he needed a Japanese ninja to sell dolls filled with heroin to the drug dealer. Or why the smoke bombs never worked properly for anybody but the old woman ninja. Or why I ate so many pancakes before starting this movie. The end of this movie features one of the longest, most realistic fights I have seen between two ninjas. By realistic, I mean they looked like they were really fighting: no wires, no special moves, kind of clumsy and slow. I guess it's what fighting really looks like, but it isn't that much fun to watch. Although this 2nd in the completely unrelated ninja trilogy (Enter the Ninja and Ninja III: The Domination) contains a ridiculous amount of fighting and a few odd nudities, the convoluted plot and terrible acting make it a little hard to watch near the end. By the way, Wikipedia lists guns and land mines as ninja weapons. I am now ready to start ninja training.
