Review in a Nutshell: Nihilistic, cynical, and achingly sincere, Righting Wrongs (1986) is a modern masterpiece of action cinema that boasts exceptional composition, cinematography, and fight choreography. It’s also completely bonkers, from a narrative standpoint.
Review in a Nutshell: An over-the-top action film with a strong sense of humor, Shoot `Em Up seems doomed to be miss-classified and miss-categorized. This film is the director’s love letter to the sort of improbable action sequences pioneered by the violent Hong Kong films of the 1990s, and thus it doesn’t entirely fit in among comparable Western films.

NOTE: Technically difficulties caused Sean’s end of the conversation to “clip” during recording. We apologize for the sound quality in advance.
Review in a Nutshell: Wasabi is an action-comedy with a zany sense of humor and a clean visual aesthetic. The film doesn’t hold up well to repeated viewing, but a single viewing is definitely worth a look, especially if you liked the later films influenced by Wasabi, such as Crank and Shoot `Em Up.

Review in a Nutshell: Crippled by terrible camera-work and Sho Kosugi’s broken Engrish, Rage of Honor is not an ideal ninja movie. Still, we at the Greatest Movie EVER! Podcast are thankful for ninja movies in general.
Review in a Nutshell: On one hand, indistinguishable gray vehicles firing machine guns at one another in an ash-colored soup of choppy action scenes. On the other hand, Mario Kart power-ups and Robin Shou. On the gripping hand, Jason Statham.
