Wind Blast puts a western twist on martial arts action
12 July 2012 | by rgblakeySee all my reviews

http://www.examiner.com/movie-in-dallas/bobby-blakey The martial arts genre is one that probably churns out just as many films regularly as the horror world. Most of them come from the Asian market and if follow some simple rules are usually entertaining on some level. The latest Wind Blast takes the western concept and smacks it into present day to attempt to create a unique action tale that thinks outside the box. If anyone can they can do it, but will it work or seem too forced to keep the clever idea from working? Wind Blast follows a detective and his former team as they compete with rival bounty hunters to track down a killer and his girlfriend throughout the Gobi desert. As simple as the story is for this film, there are some twists and turns that make it more complicated. To make matters worse, the story itself doesn't translate all that clear on screen. Instead what you get is a non-stop action film throughout the desert and never quite clear who is good and who is bad, but never really care as long as it keeps going. As it progresses you start to better realize who the cops are, but by that time it doesn't really matter. This is a film that rely's on the action as the center piece and there is plenty of it. Filled with over the top insanity as well as straight forward fights and shoot outs it plays out pretty entertainingly. The fights could have been a bit better as some of them were slowed down so much that it looked staged as opposed to two people really going at it. The shoot outs and car scenes were well done and create a unique experience as a whole. They managed to make this modern day western work on a level that probably shouldn't and entertain way more than it should.

If you're a fan of martial arts films then you should give this one a try. Just know that it focuses more on the gun and car scenes than the actual martial arts, but still works for what they are trying to pull off. The story is a bit all over the place at times, but they make up for it with plenty of action to keep you entertained.
