Mads Mikkelsen kills It…

Novice (mainly music videos and short film – only a handful of full-length feature films) director Jonas Åkerlund, and novice screenwriter Jayson Rothwell did an outstanding job creating a crazy action noir film adaptation from the graphic novel by Víctor Santos.

The directing was outstanding – props to Jonas Åkerlund for nailing this one. The great cinematography and use of high-contrast colors really added to the film, as did his camera work. The screenplay’s use of character introductions – although done many times before, worked really well, and combined with the writing and directing, gave this film a Quentin Tarantino feel.

The actors were cast perfectly and performed really well. The soundtrack by Deadmau5 was perfect for this film.

I wanted to hate this B-grade film, but ended up loving it! This is one of those films that stay with you long after you’ve seen it, and I feel in time will become a cult classic. I do hope for a part 2 – and judging by some unexpected and surprisingly well-placed surprises, I’m guessing that will happen.

The critics got this one wrong(Rotten Tomatoes has turned into total shit). Yes, it may not be for everyone, but going in not expecting much, I became a fan.

I Saw The Devil

One of the goriest and most violent revenge stories, I Saw The Devil is a South Korean cinematic masterpiece. Serial killer Kyung-Chul kills a woman in the opening scene of the movie, proceeding to decapitate her and leaving what’s left to be found by her husband and secret agent, Kim Soo-Hyun. His entire life is shattered, and now he’s got to decide how to collect the broken pieces of the murder weapon, which if not done properly, will cut him instead.

When an evil force disrupts your life and forces you to react in the most violent way possible, you bring forth your truest self that doesn’t need to be covered up anymore. After finding the killer’s whereabouts, Soo-Hyun proceeds to become a nightmare for him; severely beating him but saving some for the next time to repeat the entire thing all over again.

As it turns out, not killing him was a mistake—something he instantly regrets as the killer goes on a murder spree.

The Punisher

6 Movies Like John Wick

Make no mistakes about it, The Punisher is a great action flick that’s the proper mixture of quality acting, deep emotion, and dark violence. The Punisher ended up being a much better movie than I was anticipating. I think it will please comic fans and action fans alike.

The acting is superb Tom Jane gives an unforgettable performance, and John Travolta is the perfect villain. The action in this film is stylized, intense, and always for a reason. It’s a very serious movie about a depressed man whose family is murdered, and he goes on an endless quest to avenge them. It is without a doubt the best story of vengeance to date. The Punisher delivers a great story, superb solid acting, and unbelievable action. Comic book movies are certain to change in style and this will be the ice breaker for that to happen. The Punisher is an unbelievable comic to film adaption and I recommend it to anyone and everyone. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about this magnificent piece of art. WELL DONE!!!!!!
