City of Violence (2006)

A decent movie. Action had some nice moments but the editing and quick angle changes were annoying. Especially during the fight when both the male leads were facing 2 expert kickers each. Kept switching between both of them fighting even before any moves connected which was confusing to keep up with! Hated the soft sound effects with the fights. I suppose for a korean martial arts movie made recently it's better than most.

"Hated the soft sound effects with the fights"

It's what they do now a days(like CTHD). They want more realism in their foley. It hurts pictures imo. People throwing as hard as they can, spinning, bashing, growling, bleeding and the sound is a light, poof. Wtf!? Rather than really get into what I'm seeing, I'm taken aback by the light in the ass soundfx. Wackness.

Was a decent watch, didnt get bored which is important, but overall I was kinda disappointed by it (although cant complain at price of £3 lol).

It had good kicks in it which are my favourite in martial arts films but you could tell with a lot of the moves in the starting frames that they would never land (by quite a long way too) and obviously change the camera angle to give impression the kick has landed. IMO i thought it was poorly done.

The mass teenage gang attack on the 2 main guys was kinda pointless and overdone, it was too unrealistic. But a kool thing about that was one of the gangs was a straight copy of a gang in the American film called "Warriors" of 1979. :nerd:
