SOO: REVENGE FOR A TWISTED FATE is one of those (extremely) violent revenge movies you either like or you don't like. I like it- up to a point. A PLOT point (or two), I should add. Sure, there are a number of things that just don't add up, but the CRAFTSMANSHIP involved here is impressive indeed. (Think about this: when was the last time you complained about the inherent logic- or lack of same- in, say, a Clint Eastwood western or a Chuck Norris one-man slaughterhouse movie or any OTHER so-called "action" movie...?) One rarely (if ever) plunks down money to see how the "story" unfolds in an ACTION movie. (If Logic were a prerequisite for an Action movie, the genre itself might not exist...) If it's Revenge and Action you're looking for, SOO: REVENGE FOR A TWISTED FATE has both- in spades.
