This is the first Three Extremes collection and it comprises of Dumplings from Hong Kong director Fruit Chan, Cut from South Korean director Park Chan-wook, and Box from Japanese director Takashi Miike.

" Familiar Actors: Bai Ling Byung-hun Lee and Hye-jeong Kang True Rating: 7.3/10 Body Count- Roughly 9 give or take (Dumplings-4?), (Cut-3), (Box-2?) Note: Cut is my favorite of the three. They each have some good ideas to them, but Box was a little boring which was surprising from Takashi Miike. Dumplings was interesting and disturbing, but it just didn't make sense in some bits. "
