5.0 out of 5 stars not the next matrix but great fun, 24 Aug. 2002
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The One [DVD] [2002] (DVD)
i had pre-ordered the new film from Jet Lee a little while ago on Amazon as it sounded intresting... it got bad reviews from quite a few film magazines and i did at one point think of canceling my order.....
but the week before i got it i brought 'Kiss Of The Dragon' staring again Jet Lee and loved it! so i thought i would stick with it....
i'm glad i did realy, as its a very very good popcorn movie.
yes its a matrix rip-off; with bullet time being very over used, even some of the clothes have been nicked!....
but thats not the point is it? its a very injoyible film to watch where you can take your brain out a gear and relaxe...
The One is about there being a mutiverse rather than a universe with hundreds of worlds all the same only mildly differant.
Lee finds out that if he kills a 'double' on another world the rest become stronger, as there is only one left they are both allmost superheros in strenth but only the evil Lee knows this at the start of the film.
this makes for some lovely effects of Lee super human speed; he can doge bullets, jump tall buildings and such like [sound a bit simaler?]
one seen at the start of the film sees evil Lee take-out a double and take on a fully armed swat team after only with a pistol; and at one piont kicks a cop into the air, moves underneth him, takes out two more cops before haveing another go at the first guy who is now just above his head! [this is all done floorlessly]
if you liked 'X Men' this will apeel to you, just don't expect it to be the next Matrix or Blade: think of it a a realy good pizza night in with a few freinds and large amounts of cheap beer!

5.0 out of 5 stars the fast and the furious, 1 Aug. 2002
This review is from: Burnout [PS2] (Video Game)
i'll only say this:
if you have a PS2 and loved the film 'the fast and the furious' get this now!!!!!
its one of the only arcade games which matches the speed and insane fun of that film :o)
[two player parts of the game are some of the best EVER!]

5.0 out of 5 stars arcade brilliance!, 1 Aug. 2002
This review is from: Gran Turismo Concept (Video Game)
this is GT3 'lite' realy, for all those people who couldn't be arsed with doing all the licences and saving up money for new cars then tuning them.
you win a race, and get a new car. it that simple!
reminded me of games like Ridge Racer where there is only a few tracks and and cars [well, 100 cars] there is no spending hours tuning your cars, as you can now only change the most basic things. [eg: ride height/gears/tires]
you'll finish the main part of the game very quickly but its getting all golds in the licences to get ALL the cars the hard bit.
the handling as allways is perfect [never been beaten in my mind]
some of the new concept cars are very cool indeed, but there is some real turkeys in there aswell, like the 'pod'
if you have GT3 and love your racing games, get this for a very good [but short] blast.
if you don't yet have GT3, try this to find out if you would like the worlds best driving game on ENY format

4.0 out of 5 stars halo, 1 Jun. 2002
This review is from: Halo (Xbox) (Video Game)
you have team mates in quite a few of the levels but in all but one level [where you protect the captain] you can either kill or protect them and fight with them.
the A.I. is so good there's no leading them around while they face a wall or bang into stuff they all act as a real team: jumping into a vehicle when you do, storming a building together, in a fire fight running to save there buddies.
there's not meny weapons to pick up and your find yourself having one or two faves and sticking with them all through to the end of the game, plus only being able to have two guns on you at one time means you really choose wisely!
having your left arm to throw grenades means there's no changing weapons to use them e.g.: opening a door, spraying the room inside with gun-fire, and then quickly finally throwing in a grenade afterwards.
everything is done very realistically and tactics play a large part in the game: lets get my team mates to take out as much as they can before they all die and then i'll go in and finish off the rest!, going in the way front? ok, but be prepared for a big fire fight... take the back route and snipe them one by one for a easy kill, take on more than a few enemies at once with no cover and you die, jump into a gun emplacement and yes you've got bags of firepower but your a sitting duck for a air strike say.
one of my favourite parts in the game is where two aliens wearing stealth suits come into a room where you've just been stocking up on ammo, relaxing for a few seconds after a blood filled five minutes.... a door opens a little way off.... you only hear the little sound of the door opening.... you spin round.. "what was that?".... this is where you just fire into the room blind and see if you hit anything! [even with your torch on, its very hard to see these guys]
there's just so meny little details in the game to tell you all of them, like, if your able to hit a guy out of a speeder without damaging it you can then get in it and 'speed' off! lol
or in two player: say you drive the vehicle with player two on the back firing away as you go, then you get out while your team mate is still firing and he can cover you!
its been done with the upmost care in every way
one of the only gripes i have is that there is no long term smoke after affects like in Goldeneye/Perfect Dark, oh yes there's smoke coming out of your muzzle, burning spaceships lying on the ground after you've shot them down, grenade 'dust', atmospheric perspective [things in the distance you can hardly see], lens flares, real-time lighting affects on everything [a bad guy in a dark room only shows up when his gun is fired], to name but a few. but still no walking into a smoke filled room blind, which lets be truthful was one of the best things about one player Goldeneye.

5.0 out of 5 stars grown-up sci fi, 5 Oct. 2000
This review is from: The Thirteenth Floor [DVD] (DVD)
better in story to the matrix, it makes you think so much about the film after you've finished watching it .
it's nice to watch something differant sometimes. every part of it is done so well with love and care.

buy it if you liked the film gattica
