Ben S (kr) wrote: Italian directing duo Antonio Piazza and Fabio Grassadonia mark their feature debut with Salvo, a mob thriller more concerned with sensual tactility than machismo and bloodletting. Painted in the dark colours and deep lines of the Renaissance painters, Salvo is a film of imagery and atmosphere, with a minimal plot utilised to knit its more spiritual feelings together. The eponymous Salvo - a mesmerising Saleh Bakri - is a mafia hitman dressed in black and relentless in his cold-blooded pursuit of a target, as an electrifying opening chase sequence testifies. But Salvo is forced to question his life, and very nature, when confronted with Rita (Sara Serraiocco), the partially sighted sister of his latest target. After navigating around her in a pitch-black house sheltered from the stifling Palermo heat - in a nerve-shredding, single take scene shot intimately over the shoulder - the hired killer mysteriously spares her life and instead chooses to imprison her in a run down outbuilding. Salvo's intentions are left deliberately abstract, but far from sexual he seems more fascinated with the purity and helplessness of this beautiful creature - finding solace in caring for someone who is so far removed from his mortal sins. In a minor, but deeply significant, scene Salvo patches up a bullet wound to his abdomen, and drifts off to sleep - but as the blood swiftly seeps through his crisp white Lacoste polo shirt he is forced to revert to his standard all black attire. Rita may have brought a change upon him, but a dark past is not so swiftly forgotten.Predominantly a film of the visual, much of the credit for its success falls with cinematographer Daniele Cipr, whose colour palette and shadows bring the experience to life with an expressive, palpable texture. The heat is oppressive, the dark is claustrophobic and Salvo' s bright eyes pierce through it all. Bereft of much dialogue it's these sensory interactions that tell the story. While this is the film at its most lyrical, there is a tinge of disappointment that the initial surge of adrenaline - and more generic elements - are not expanded upon. Piazza and Grassadonia have steered consciously clear of making the traditional reformed hitman movie, but on this evidence their talent for action deserves further expansion. Centred on a laconic, but captivating Bakri, his stony face forms the film's lasting image. Required to do little more than brood and stare he is nevertheless able to shape this into a performance as intriguing as the expertly captured photography. With the themes of vision and morals enthusiastically toyed with throughout, Salvo is a film to become lost in, as the odd relationship between captor and captive works to an unpredictable conclusion - and, perhaps most impressively, shuns the more obvious melodramatics. A stylish and considered drama, Salvo may reveal itself as partially shallow if inspected too deeply but, for the atmospheric journey it takes us on, the Italian debutants deserve the highest of praise.
Art S (ca) wrote: I didn't realize that this film was based on a (Japanese) videogame, but in retrospect the plot clichs and the two-dimensional characterizations do seem to fit the mold. Director Takashi Miike adds a dash of flash to the proceedings with an extra helping of CGI, an oddball supporting cast, and, in fact, a steady hand on the controls. After all, someone who has directed 90 projects (not all of them films) since 1991 (according to IMdB) must know a thing or two about managing dramatic tension - especially in a courtroom drama. (That's not to say that Miike doesn't let some of his films get out of control - probably on purpose). The twists and turns of the current movie unfortunately didn't quite grab me, seeming too artificial, unmotivated, and ultimately clichd. However, I never played the videogame.

JB R (ru) wrote: Understated thriller with story by the wonderful Baxt, Beaumont, & Matheson team. The direction is solid and consistent with the tone of the whole picture. The film slumps a bit in the middle but overall maintains an eery tension. Great find for fans of British Horror.

Panta O (de) wrote: This direct-to-video comedy is an adaptation of Hal Roach's Our Gang, a series of short films of the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s (The Little Rascals was the name used on TV) which centred around the adventures of a group of neighbourhood children. The screenplay for this version was written by William Robertson and Alex Zamm , and Zamm directed it as well. The setting of this movie is updated compared to the 1994's theatrical release The Little Rascals. The story starts on the last day of school before summer vacation, and friends Spanky, Alfalfa, Mary Ann, and Stymie try to leave school early with the help from Buckwheat and Porky. Miss Crabtree agrees to let the four kids go, forcing them out of her surprise ice cream cake party for the class. Disappointed rascals head over to their tree house located next to Grandma's bakery to begin rehearsing for an upcoming talent show. The Rascals have their a kind of a band, which Spanky decides to call The International Silver String Submarine Band. The band plans on playing Sonny & Cher's "I Got You Babe" for the talent show but they sound terrible. Alfalfa suggests making the performance better by getting Darla- the girl he likes - to sing the song with him... of course, that is when the real trouble begins! I won't be mentioning the young actors, and I think with that I am doing them a favour! The acting was bad - even Doris Roberts as Grandma and Greg Germann as Ray "Big Ray" Kaye were miserable! It is designed for younger audience, but I am sad to see that somehow that younger audience is treated as almost idiotic... I will suggest to stay away!
