What are people saying?

  • HKFanatic's rating of the film Firestorm

    In a word? Disappointing. "Firestorm" features enough shootouts on crowded city streets to make Michael Mann blush, but the film is undone by the filmmakers' desire to paint what is a meat-and-potatoes Hong Kong actioner as a morally complex thriller a la "Infernal Affairs." Rather than achieving profundity, it just means we have no one to root for when the characters charge into battle and, thus, no reason to care.
