Blu-ray Review: ‘The Sorcerer and the White Snake’ Succumbs to Silliness

The Sorcerer and the White Snake Blu-ray

CHICAGO – “The Sorcerer and the White Snake” is a title that suggests the sort of tall tale that would entrance a crowd of scouts around a camp fire.

Film Review: Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham Are Halfway in ‘The Expendables’

CHICAGO – Seeing them all together was fun. Enduring some macho joshing, even in the form of stiff dialogue, was tolerable. But doing a bad, boring action movie with Sylvester Stallone trying to prop up his “legacy” was sadly too much to bear.

Blu-Ray Review: ‘The Warlords’ Triumphantly Depicts War as Hell

The Warlords Blu-Ray

CHICAGO – In the opening moments of Peter Ho-Sun Chan’s “The Warlords,” martial arts superstar Jet Li performs one of his bravest physical feats yet. He breaks into tears. This comes as a bit of a shock, considering Li’s status as one of China’s most formidable onscreen ass-kickers. Yet it’s in keeping with Chan’s uncommonly emotional approach to depicting historical events often drained of humanity.
