one action packed movie. There are plenty of bloody fights, dismemberments and
no end to body bags. The main character
sort of reminds me of a young 'Punisher' (minus the guns) with Muay Thai
Boxing, emotionless and determined, he break people like a toothpick and steps
over them like it was nothing. While
violent, you feel like it is karma justice for all the people he beats up, they
deserve it. For a foreign film, is it oddly
spoken in English for half the time.
1.85 X 1 digital High Definition image is remarkable and the DTS-HD MA (Master
Audio) lossless track has some limits, but is not bad, though not as great as
it should have been. Extra includes
trailers, which is really not much.
