A really overrated movie

11 years, 2 months ago at Aug 20 8:54
It’s another movie that I saw ages ago. In fact, I actually managed to see it in the movie theatre when there was a special re-run. However, it was probably more than 20 years ago and I should definitely re-watch the damned thing at some point. Anyway, I remember it very well, back in the 90's, John Woo was really hot, he was pretty much considered as an icon by many directors such as Quentin ... read more

1001 Movies ... my own version (1980's) (133 movies items)

" Notes: I remember it very well, back in the 90's, John Woo was really hot, he was pretty much considered as an icon by many directors such as Quentin Tarantino and since ‘The Killer’ was considered to be his magnum opus, I watched it with the highest expectations. Well, to be honest, I thought the damned thing was actually pretty bad. The fact that it was my first contact with John Woo’s work probably didn’t help. Basically, there were a lot of shootings, lot of slow motion... Eventual"

"25.10. DVD Uusintakatselu. Le Samourain selkeä perillinen onnistuu olemaan häpeilemättömässä melodraamassaan ja järjettömässä väkivallassaankin todella ehyt ja jopa kaunis. Veljeyttä ja moraalikoodistoa käsittelee jo vallan puhuttelevasti."
