A Rare Find: A "B" Movie With Originality!, 19 June 2001
Author: Ziggy from Vancouver, BC

For anyone who truly loves and appreciates B movies for the art form that they are, "The Third Society" is a welcome treat. With a well-directed blend of action, smartass comedy, and a little "something different", this movie brings some real originality to an underappreciated genre, and is definitely worth the look. This flick has got attitude to spare, and features some of the most memorable B movie scenes I've come across in a long time, along with a surprisingly good soundtrack.

Bottom Line: This is one movie that definitely deserves to be seen by a larger audience, and I for one am already anxious to see what this production team comes up with next.
