Romeo Must Die

Gang movies involving Asian actors speaking English invariably end up, at best, as B-Grade movies (don’t even remind me of the shocking movie that was Mr Nice Guy). I can say that Romeo Must Die was an exception. When the director’s name (Joel Silver) flashed up in the opening credits, I was thinking, “gee he sounds familiar.” Indeed, he directed The Matrix and the influence from that movie comes through very strongly in the fight scenes. One thing though – remember Shlonglor’s comments about a lack of wide angle shots? That’s quite true. Small gripe, though. Watch this if you want to see a nice action flick on a Friday night and don’t mind hip-hop music :)
