"I seen this late one night on BBC2, two minutes later I knew it was going to be one of my all time favourites.  Gripping story."

"I watched this at the cinema and was extremely glad the cinema was almost empty because I could not stop laughing.  Excellent action sequences and classic slapstick comedy."

"This must be one of the most intriguing ideas for a film ever and it certainly delivers.  Worryingly exciting."
Spoorloos / The Vanishing [DVD]

"When I first seen this film it haunted me for several months after.  It has to be watched if for nothing else other than to see how much the American remake missed the mark."
Battle Royale [DVD] [2001]

"You need to watch this twice to get a handle on the characters because it is so fast paced it's difficult to follow at times.  The pace simply adds to a relentless thrill ride."
Oldboy (Two-Disc Special Edition) [DVD] [2003]

"In my opinion this is the best of the Vengeance trilogy.  Amazing story and brilliant fight sequences."
Ong Bak (2 Disc Special Collector's Edition) [DVD] [2003]

"For sheer fun, this must be one of the best action films of all time.  It's a real throw-back to the eighties with slow-mo's, replays and outrageous explosions it taps into the wow factor through out."
The Young Master [DVD]

"This is still one of the funniest films i've ever seen.  The final fight sequence is both funny and spectacular in equal measures."
Run Lola Run [DVD] [2000]

"A very clever well made film, it's hard to fault it really."
Amelie [DVD] [2001]

"It's rare for a film to work so well, but this film was so perfectly pitched.  It is both the antithesis and antidote for Hollywood."
