Not quite up there with L’Armée Des Ombres or Flammen & Citronen, but Norwegian Resistance flick Max Manus still packs a punch – such as when our eponymous hero (Aksel Hennie) jumps out of a window to escape the Nazis.
I think the only other film by Corey Yuen I have seen is The Transporter, which I found rather enjoyable, but even so, I felt DOA: Dead Or Alive somewhat dull in the main.
Still, the climax of this video game adaptation – storyline: women take part in death tournament on isolated island – goes partway to redeeming the rest of the movie.
Waingro (Xander Berkeley) heads south in LA Takedown, Michael Mann’s TVM dry run for Heat.
I vaguely recall that this fall from Brian De Palma’s Ellroy adaptation The Black Dahlia was important, but… Meh.
A flaming man falling, from Two Mules For Sister Sara.
…And now again from In Bruges, this time from Ken’s point of view.
City break fan and professional hitman Ken (Brendan Gleeson) experiments with gravity in In Bruges.
