A pleasantly enhanced remake of the original 1941 Fritz Lang film MAN HUNT, starring Walter Pidgeon. On the good side it is more in keeping with Geoffrey Household’s novel. The major complaint I have is the quality of the master used to produce the DVD. It’s not only grainy; the print is faded and bleeds color, continuing into glitches in the picture as well as sound.
In a nutshell it’s a modern twist movie based upon the 1980’s storyline of WAR GAMES and HAL of the movie 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY.
A rare gem of a movie coming out of remote Mongolia. We get a glimpse of life behind the picturesque beauty of this remote region of China filled with daily survival, tragedy, love, vulgar violence, abuse of power, revenge and so much more from an unexpected source.
Not an actual sequel, but based along the same storyline as CENTURION. Marcus Aquila (Channing Tatum) is the son of the fallen General of the doomed 9th Legion. He seeks to bring back his family’s honor by recovering Rome’s 9th Legion standard (the Gold Eagle) that has been missing since their disappearance 20 years earlier.
CENTURION is the next step in the revival of the classic Roman Gladiator films of the 50’s & 60’s. Roman soldiers versus Britain’s Northern Pict Warriors in a deadly game of loyalty, bitter survival and sweet revenge.
Another Italian muscle man gladiator movie of its’ time, the film is better than most in respect to storyline and acting. As usual, there are the epic battle scenes. The original copy source is a bit worn and grainy but a true fan will excuse this.
Here is a great example of 1960’s Italian muscle-bound gladiator movies starring Mark Forest. Getting past the somewhat cheesy script and the poorly dubbed scenes, you’ll find a well laid out action packed film.
