The Great Cop Drama

The unmistakably raw, atmospheric genre of the cop drama has always been one of my favourites. From hard hitting features though to awesome TV series, when you see a great one there’s no mistaking the quality, attitude and, when it’s done differently, true originality.  End of Watch from director David Ayer marks one of the best genre entries in recent years and unsurprisingly it does all of the above; it’s raw, atmospheric, there’s quality, attitude and it’s original in the delivery. The …

Action Goes Full Circle

Seeing the asskicking new teaser trailer for Yuen Woo-ping‘s latest project, Once Upon a Time in Shanghai, was not only extremely impressive and enjoyable, but for those of us who grew up on action movies – really delivered a hard-hitting ‘blast from the past’. For me (and hopefully others as well) it gave memories of the old-school Kung Fu seen on late night TV and VHS while growing up.
