It's difficult to adequately describe this amazing movie A truly remarkable film. It tells a simple story in a beautiful and brutal way. The writing stays out of the way and allows the story to be told with out getting gunked up with a lot of preachy dialogue. The performances by Hauer, D'Onofrio, and Chen are intense when they have to be and minimalistic when they ought to be. But the true genius of this movie is the production design. The details are what leap out at me. The little things. Everything seems right and nothing is out of place. The constant brutality is underscored by the moments of beauty and heroics. SEE THIS MOVIE
