EVERYTHING YOU EXPECT. I only went cause all my sisters and brother were going, the last time that happen was Memoirs of a Geisha back in 2006. Half couldn’t go.
Bad dialogue, hella typical lame story, gorefest, super flashy. It wasn’t as bad as I expected, but maybe that’s because my sister paid for me. LOL
I like the bloodspray effect, looks like Hawaiian Punch in the air.
ALSO, IF YOU’RE MAKING AN ASIAN THEMED MOVIE, DON’T MAKE THEM SPEAK ENGLISH.
"YOU DISHONOR YOUR FAMILY" I fucking hate that bs. Say it in Japanese or something. In English it sounds fucking ridiculous.
