Homeland Security (2004)
The only success of this film is its consistency in failure to ask questions
The only success of this film is its consistency in failure to ask questions regarding the events it appears to portray. Watch this film for a one-dimensional, pro-American, anti-historical and completely illogical portrayal of the events surrounding 9/11 and its immediate aftermath. The disgusting thing is that, now in 2007, this film is still shown (I had the displeasure to watch this film today June 2007 on Britain's Sky Movies) despite its huge flaws and inaccuracies. Watch this film, but only if you do not cherish your knowledge and education. Films such as this should be scrapped.
I gave this film a 1 simply because I cannot give it a zero, which it truly deserves.
Lat sau san taam (1992)
Infernal Affairs, with more guns!
This has got to be John Woo's finest film. Chow Yun Fat and Tony Leung are at their best. The storyline of the film itself is great (a cross between Infernal Affairs and Bad Boys 2) but the most excitement comes from the adrenalin filled 'set-pieces' if you can call them that - they make up most of the film! Usually guns and explosions just mask a rubbish film, but this is not the case for Hard Boiled. OK, it may not be entirely accurate when it comes to shootouts (endless bullets, unbelievable inaccurate aim and jumping through windows, etc), but it is a joy to watch. This is definitely a film that you can watch again and again without ever getting bored. Think of Mission Impossible, with a better storyline and far more pyrotechnics.
