What are people saying?

  • HKFanatic's rating of the film The Wrath of Vajra

    It's almost preposterous that this movie was made in 2013. "Wrath of Vajra" feels born from the same early 90's era that gave us manga-inspired action flicks like "The Story of Ricky" - replete with a 'save the kidnapped children from the evil cult' subplot a la "Temple of Doom" and an increasingly outlandish series of foes for our hero to tackle in video game-style boss fights. Kung fu buffs will be entertained.
