King of Triads

Royally average.


Action

Rod Lott
"Queen of Triads" is a more accurate title for "King of Triads," but to quibble about such things over a thoroughly mediocre Hong Kong actioner is a waste of time and energy.

42nd Street Forever: Blu-ray Edition

A treasure trove of trailers that titillate.


Action

Rod Lott
Since 2005, Synapse Films has helped keep the sticky-floored spirit of grindhouse cinema alive by issuing collections of coming attractions under the 42nd Street Forever banner. Interested parties can catch up on the half-dozen titles thus far on DVD (I have, minus the lone XXX-Treme one) or opt for the new Blu-ray Edition. It's essentially a "greatest hits" piece, culling 80 trailers from all previous volumes.

The Raid: Redemption

If there’s a better action film this year, ‘The Raid’ will kick its ass into nonexistence.


Action

Rod Lott
Fans of pure action cinema are apt to grow delirious with glee over The Raid: Redemption, an Indonesian crime thriller that relies so much upon the universal language of violence, one could enjoy it without subtitles.
