TOW Wednesday… Movie Time

Wednesday will always be my movie nite. This time, I’m going to Cathay Cineleisure at The Curve Damansara for my movie date. It has always been my favorite to watch the movies here. Very comfortable and not that pack compared to TGV and GSC. And also next to The Curve so I can take a walk at the street mall before or after the movie.The place is empty. It’s shocking as this is the first time I saw the place is so dead. Chatted with the worker there and she said that since Ramadan month, the place is only full during the weekend.
Anyway, I’ve made my online booking, so I proceed with getting the tickets.
What movie I’m gonna watch?
ROGUE ASSASINGenre: Action/Thriller
Director: Philip G. Atwell
Cast : Jet Li, Jason Statham, Andrea Roth, Devon Aoki, John Lone, Kane Kosugi, Kennedy Lauren Montano, Luis Guzman, Mark Cheng, Mathew St. Patrick, Nadine Velazquez, Ryo Ishibashi, Saul Rubinek, Terry Chen
RunTime: 1 hr 45 mins
Released By: Shaw
Rating: NC-16 (Violence and Some Nudity)
After his partner is brutally murdered by the infamous assassin Rogue (Jet Li), FBI agent Jack Crawford (Jason Statham) vows to find the elusive killer and personally avenge his partner's death. But Rogue proves untraceable until three years later when he resurfaces to ignite a bloody turf war between Chinese mob leader Chang (John Lone) and Japanese Yakuza boss Shiro (Ryo Ishibashi). Eager to capture Rogue once and for all, Crawford leads his team of crime specialists headlong into the conflict and he finally comes face to face with his enemy to discover that nothing about Rogue or his plan is quite what it seems.
*** The movie is so 90’s. The normal Jacky Chan and Jet Li movie with fights and police involved. The first half is so dead boring, I almost fall asleep. For the love of god, Jet Li really can’t act. Even the co-star acts better than him. Anyway, towards the end is quite entertaining to watch Jet Li with his fighting acts. That’s his forte, and that’s the elements that sell the film. Just OK to watch.
