Keanu Reeves plays a villain in the martial arts movie that he self directed. Tiger Hu-Chen that plays “The Man of Thai-Chi” himself performs quite well. We also have a cameo from Iko Uwais (watch out for the 2nd “Raid” movie) and few known actors as supporting cast.
An average martial-arts-tournament movie with couple nice moments. You won’t be disappointed or knocked down by the film either.
Great combination of a Women in prison-, martial arts- and revenge- movie. Rachel Nichols’ appearance is pretty damn good (IMO she kicked more ass here than in all episodes of Continuum). Zoe Bell get’s reunited with Tracie Thoms again after the memorable team-up in Deathproof. Has there ever been a women only martial arts movie? Now there is one for sure. The fight sequences are dynamic and brutal (Fight Club face smashing multiplied by 10).
The last few scenes of the movie however kinda spoiled the great impression that I gained during the first 85% of the film. The ending could be much more better, and CGI-blood free.
