Exiled (Fong juk)
Just one film today... "Exiled", a gangster movie from China. Known for its choreography, I was expecting a bit more. Maybe some slow motion, some cool long tracking shots, a person or two flying about, but none of that was present. It (in my opinion) featured fairly ordinary shoot-outs, which almost reminded me of old western movies. The gun sounds were so realistic that in a movie, they seemed quite out of place.
It wasn't a horrible movie though. It had a compelling plot, several bits of humor ("How many pounds is a ton of love?"), and a great but unexpected ending, that without, the movie would have been pretty average.
