The Picture Quality looked good at points its sharp at times its not. Not many colors to say colors pop as the film is over all dark. The slow Motion of rain drops and action points how good the film looks. Over all it looks great, not Pixar Quality but still pretty good

My Thoughts

 

The Wrath that I feel is real when I view this movie, Not in a bad way. I feel the anger in the main leads acting when he fights and I like that. The plot of the film is OK not great but still fun to watch as its got that mortal combat, bloodsport type of feel. What makes this film great is the action.

The Good – Action Action Action, Moves I want to see more of in films. I loved the action in this film, Yes I wont say as great as Ip man, But it’s still holds its own and I got lost in the film so that I Forgot to comment on the Picture Quality and sound Quality I had to watch it twice. Loved the Monkey Guy who is very creepy and weird at first but when he fights it’s really cool to watch.

The Bad – Not so much bad but the story is just and OK plot with some back story. Some of the action felt like it could do with out some of the CGI at some points. It wasn’t used much but you can notice when it happens.

Over all I loved the film and majority for its action. Don t watch the dub version, watch it the way its supposed to be watched as there are several different languages used here and losses the effect of the speaking as if you do it will be just every one speaking English. OK yes I know I didn’t say much I didn’t explain plots or share names or show you how things go, I do this in all my reviews so you will have to follow that road your self when you View the film. I don’t want to spoil anything and you should go in blind like I did and do for a lot of films I view.

I have to give this film a 4 out of 5. The film does get good reviews around the net but my score is a tad bit better. Due to the action itself. Pick it up check it out and let me know what you think. Do you have the same Views and taste as I do?
