(2012, dir. Gareth Evans, w/ Iko Uwais, Doni Alamsyah)
An Indonesian SWAT team storm a tenement building that houses one of Jakarta's most corrupt and merciless criminals. Fighting their way from the ground floor all the way up to the fifteenth in a disturbing monotony of bloody violence, the SWAT team soon realise they are ill prepared for such relentless bloodshed. A tense thriller with stunning fight scenes and an exorbitant excess of screen violence. TJFILM INFO (Astor rating)
(2010, dir. Takeshi Kitano, w/ Takeshi Kitano, Ryo Kase, Jun Kunimura)
Outrage will start at approximately 9:36pm, and finish at approximately 11:31pm.
Takeshi Kitano wrote a series of death sequences and then filled in the gaps with occasional underworld exposition. The result is one very violent Yakuza film which aims only to entertain fans of the genre. And there it most certainly succeeds. TJFILM INFO (Astor rating)
