"Not much in terms of plot, acting, or directing. Yet, it has some kind of 'hood charm' which makes it a passable film. Was awesome when I was 16 tho."

"This was directed by a stunt driver and its easy to tell. It's basically one long car chase scene with a few derby car crashes to spice things up. It gets old. The acting/script/plot is non-existent. And yet, it has some southern charm. The only thing that saves it. Breaker breaker."

"I wanted to like this one. I really did. It started off the first few scenes with good pacing, nice soundtrack, and what appeared to be an intriguing plot: an assassin roaming the neon-streets of 90s Hong Kong blasting two pistols akimbo. I mean, fuck, what else do you want? But ultimately, it's all sizzle and no steak. This is a highly stylized film but the plot is paper thin. The acting may be solid, I suppose, but when there isn't much of a story or even sharp dialogue-- whats the point?"

"I would have enjoyed this film a lot better had it started with the events of the final act. That's where the anti-heroes really let their hair down and go full badass. I would have loved to see more of that. But, I suppose you have some backstory and show Brad Pitt shirtless first. Speaking of which, just like The Killer should get rid of the women roles, this one should get rid of the men. It's entertaining but it does have its low points. Oh, and I'm a sucker for Western cinematography so."

""A woman's descent into madness". It's been done before, no? Well, maybe not many times back in 1965. And maybe that's why I don't rate it as highly as others might. There is a gradual change from a drama into full blown psychological horror by the end. Nice little jazz accents throughout. There is something to say here about mental illness as well as perhaps feminism. It's not spelled out, so there's plenty of food for thought."

"Some nice cinematography, at times, in this one. Always enjoy a 'every day slice of life' film, when its well done. A UK 400 Blows. The scene with the football coach was hilarious, and there is other humor spread throughout. I enjoy these type of endings."
