Great Movie, Corner Pocket
30 April 2007 | by (Boise, Idaho) – See all my reviews

First off, let me warn you - the ten I give this movie is due to entertainment value only. In terms of the usual standards we measure movies by - believable story lines, realistic character development, dialogue, etc. - this thing is atrocious, but trust me - you have never ever seen a movie like this, and as far as I'm concerned, there's no higher recommendation.

The story concerns the high stakes, cut-throat world of professional billiards in Hong Kong (although, oddly enough, they never play the game CutThroat once). That's really all you need to know, because this is the sort of movie that a mere description cannot possibly prepare you for. The box the movie comes in - whether VHS or DVD - is very vague about the story, and pitches it as a typical honor driven kung fu flick, which this is certainly not. Its depiction of the brutally violent hardcore rivalries amongst trick shot artists is incredible, and by the finale, you'll be roaring at how out of control the one upmanship between the two trick shot factions gets.

Brilliant, and I guarantee you - you have never seen another movie quite like this. It's too bad this director has not picked up the cult following he deserves.
