Just a little review of some movies I have watched recently.
1. Storm Warriors
The evil warlord Lord Godless wants to conquer China. He threatens the General in command into surrender, takes the Emperor captive in order to get the Dragon Bone He also subdues the martial arts masters using his special poison. Martial arts Master Nameless is injured as he tries to defeat Lord Godless, but escapes with Cloud and Wind. As Nameless is too injured to fight Lord Godless, he sends Cloud and Wind to persuade Lord Wicked to help.
I loved everything about this movie; from the effects; to the fight scenes; to the excellent acting from Ekin Cheng, Aaron Kwok, Nicholas Tse, Simon Yam and Kenny Ho. The ending is very unexpected and leaves you wanting more.
2. Ninja Assassin
- Raizo has been trained since childhood to be a lethal killer. Raizo forms a romantic attachment to a female ninja within his clan. Unfortunately she wishes to escape the clan and is executed as a traitor after trying to escape one night. He then begins to feel resentment towards his master and clan. After his first assassination Raizo is ordered to kill a fellow ninja who has also tried to escape the clan, but he rebels and escapes and now seeks revenge for their heartless murders
This movie was excellent, action packed from the word go. Fight scenes were excellent and very bloody. Rain was fantastic as Raizo; very cold and ruthless. Sho Kosugi very convincing as the cruel and ruthless Lord Ozunu who is the leader of the Ninja Clan.
Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief - Percy discovers he is a demi-god and is the son of Poseidon. Also is suspected of stealing Zeus's Lightning Bolt; and more worrying for him his mother has been kidnapped by Hades. Percy and his friends go on a cross-country quest to find enough Persephone's pearls to go to the Underworld and save his mom, and catch the true lightning thief therefore preventing a war between the Gods.
If you like Greek Mythology (and I do) then this is a fun movie for you as they integrate some of the myths loosely into the movie. The movie had very good CGI, cool action scenes, and often a very witty script. Uma Thurman excelled at being a very cool looking but menacing Medusa.
