Summary: I love martial arts and this movie does it better than any other movie.
Realistically too, rather than the main character beating up a hundred guys,
fighting the boss and nearly dying then having a special moment after which he
beats the boss. Well mostly realistically. On the gory side, and with lots of
swearwords (in Asian but subtitled,) it's not for the kids.

Summary: Excellent fighting scenes, using Silat at times, then when the penultimate
fight starts between two brothers against one guy its everything you could hope
for excelling on all levels.
This movie is right up there with the likes of the 1st Ong Bak, Ip Man 1 &
2, you will not be disapointed.
Summary: Very different to most martial arts movies. Most seem to show off the martial
art like ‘look I'm doing amazing fighting’ or ‘look this is an art.’
This makes it about fighting for survival not for show. But then also shows off
some pretty cool moves.
I had it standard but then bought Blu-ray. Differences between the two are the
music playing on the menu and the background music as the good guys start moving
up levels before they get discovered.
Conclusion: The best action film of 2012 bar none and up there with the Die Hards for pure action and amazing set pieces. The fight scene in the corridor has to be seen to be believed. An almost dance like sequence that will go down in cinema history. And all this from a Welsh director called Gareth!!!! Cymru am byth!
Conclusion: Ok so i was intrigued with the storyline of this movie so thought id give it a watch.The story is kinda judge dredd style with being locked in the building but to be honest it blows dredd out the water in my opinion, the action scenes are tremendous and the film draws you in to the fear of the cops environment. This movie is definetly one i will put up high in my favourite martial arts movies regardles of its flaws.
Conclusion: This is the best film I have seen so far in 2012. The story line is not unique and there are some very cliche lines but the action is next level. This is the perfect movie to watch with your mates whilst having a few beers. Watch this before the inevitable Hollywood remake rears its head.
