There are so so many action films these days, the bland and dull ones
all seem to mush up together in a week blob of goop. So whether it's
Hong Kong or Hollywood, it takes something really special for an action
movie to stand out these days. For me, THIS FILM IS ONE OF THOSE
SPECIAL MOVIES! And trust me, I watch a lot of films, so it takes quiet
a bit for a movie to get my love.
Why this movie so awesome? To be honest, it's really quiet hard to put to words. I guess I just love it, I don't really have a reason you know, this movie is just awesome.
This movie hits all the notes. Simon Yam is absolutely brilliant, his character is so bloody damn cool. A very Hong Kong Jack Bauer aura to him. And Michael Miu is an absolutely show stopping villain, I absolutely fell for him. Only the most truly special action movies can get me to REALLY truly route for the bad guy, this was one of those movies. Plus Andy On is in this movie, I love that guy! I love him when he's fighting!
Plus, the gun fights are PIMP. And as an extra bonus cherry on top, the Martial Arts fights are bloody damn awesome (this coming from a guy who watches a lot of martial arts films, and has really high standards) ! The pacing and story telling is also extremely thrilling and keeps you entertained throughout! This movie basically blood has it bloody damn all! Oh yeah! And there are hot girls in this movie too! Like REALLY HOT! Nice body and stuff, and face you know.
Conclusion, this movie is DOPE! Watch it! You will have a bloody good time!
When I came across this movie, I had never heard of it, nor of the
people involved with it; so I really did not know what to expect. I was
very pleasantly surprise! Angry Ranger is a very fun exciting action
packed movie, with entertaining fight choreography, and charismatic
characters (the writing and story is quite character driven, and very
entertaining). One really entertaining factor is how bad ass the
anti-hero main character is. This film falls into the brawling
street-fight style Kung Fu movie genre; where most of the fighters
mainly use punches, kicks, grapples and or nearby weapons; but still in
a noticeably Hong Kong Kung Fu movie style way (some other films of
this genre include the Donnie Yen 'Tiger Cage' films, the Jackie Chan
'Police Story' films, and the Jackie Chan film 'Gorgeous' ext. This
genre of Hong Kong action fighting style is very unlike the fancy Kung
Fu fighting style genre; where most of the fighters use elaborate
martial arts moves, stylish fighting stances, and eccentric weapon
handling. Some films of the fancy genre include Jet Li's 'Tai Chi
Master', Jackie Chan's 'Legend of Drunken Master', or Donnie Yen's 'Ip
I am extremely happy to have come across this rare gem of a film, which I very high recommend to martial arts film fans!
Omg this is probably one of my favorite martial arts films of all time
!!!!!!! this film stars Vanness Wu ( who is a famous singer in China,
sooo even though this guy is not obviously the best actor or martial
artist, you can tell that he try's really hard, and trained really hard
in the martial arts for this film, and it shows), also the great Andy
On is in this film, and he rips it (his awesome in this film !!!) !
added bonus, the legendary Ti Lung is in this film! Ti Lung !
One thing that really sets this kung fu film apart from most other kung fu films is you really really care and have emotional connections with the characters. I really fell in love with Vanness's character, and Andy On's character as well (you want them both to win, you can't tell who to root for ) . this film is sooo emotionally touching, and i think the fight scenes are bloody Giga awesome. Another thing i mucho love about this film, is that this film has a billion montages, like there are montages within montages ! me and my friends just love to joke about the excessive montages in this film, i love montages, and i think this film has some of the best montages ever.
sooo ughh watch this film, some people don't like this film for some reason, don't listen to them, this film ripping mucho rocks super rocking awesome film !
