300 (2007)

Certification15 Our Rating

'Swords and Sandals' meets 'Swords and Sorcery' in this swashbuckling comic strip style version of the battle of Thermopylae, the time when 50,000 Persians were held for days by 300 Spartans at a pass into Greece. Waves of costumed Persians are slashed, gashed, chopped, spiked, speared and generally mutilated in this operatic tribute. find out more...

A raw bunch of Soviet conscripts are drilled into shape on the training ground and dropped into the thick of it in Afghanistan. A big box office hit in Russia this may, like films about the American invasion of Vietnam, be politically naive, but as a war drama it pulls no punchs and, with the possible exception of a silly, poorly edited final battle scene, delivers the goods in superb fashion. find out more...

October 1993, Mogadishu, Somalia and a force of elite American troops, under the banner of the UN, are sent into the city to abduct a warlord's henchmen. But the carefully laid plan quickly goes belly up and the soldiers are left fighting for their lives with little support and vastly out numbered. Black Hawk Down is a relentless slab of action and though based on true events, no attempt is made to explain the why or the wherefore beyond "badman" versus "goodman" and heroic stereotypes abound.

Two brothers, in itself a metaphor, get drafted into the Korean Civil War. The more macho elder one is determined to become a hero in order to win his bookish brother a ticket back to mum and this leads both to him turning into a monster and a serious split between the two. Against the bitter backdrop of a violent war many loyalties are called into question, to brother, family, friend, nation, ideology, nationality and to fellow soldiers, and many are betrayed. This is an awesome, if emotionally find out more...

Three young Hong Kong hustlers move to Saigon to try and profit, smuggling penicillin and gold, from the war, but their friendship is tested to the limits through greed, betrayal and lust, amid the horrors of a war-torn Vietnam. Comparable to the 'Deer Hunter', this violent epic is the most ambitiously personal and political of John Woo's films, but still comes packed with guns, explosives and balletic action. find out more...
CHI-RAQ (2015)

Certification15 Our Rating

Lee returns to his previous polemic and fine filmmaking form with Chi-Raq, a musical-comedy satire about the cycle and effects of violence and gun crime on black communities in America. The story is all Lysistrata (Aristophanes); women withhold sex from men in the hopes of making them stop using violence against each other. It's far from politically correct, not nearly as find out more...

'City of Life and Death', like the earlier 'City of War; the John Rabe Story', is an account of the Rape of Nanjing; the terrible crimes committed by the Japanese army during the sacking of the Chinese city and the desperate efforts to protect those, mainly Chinese, sheltering in the protected German zone. This version concentrates less on the atrocities and heroic whites and more on the growing sensitivity and terrible guilt of a Japanese sergeant.
