Its been well over a decade since the release of 2000’s ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.’  And despite earning over $200 million worldwide on a $17 million dollar budget, fans weren’t clamoring for a sequel.

In recent years, rumblings of a possible sequel in the works caught on with fans of the original.  I’m sure in part this was attributed to the predominance of social media in mainstream society.  Nevertheless, fans have been heard and we now have our first look at the Netflix and select theaters movie ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny’

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny‘ Hits Netflix and select theaters February 26, 2016.  Starring: Donnie Yen, Michelle Yeoh, Harry Shum Jr. and Jason Scott Lee.

Accident Man: Hitman’s Holiday | A Bigger, Better and More Bonkers Sequel

Hitman’s Holiday is far more action packed, stylish and wittier than the first. Delivering an incredibly fun and bonkers experience that action movie fans and martial arts fans will adore.

Published

on

Bigger, bolder and far better than the first, Accident Man: Hitman’s Holiday is everything fans could have wanted, and so much more. The action is far more thrilling and engaging, the comedy is much wittier and the characters are pure bonkers, making Accident Man 2 and absolute joy and pleasure to watch.

Mike Fallon (Scott Adkins), aka. The Accident Man, is back, but this time Fallon is on a deadly mission to protect the ungrateful son of an infamous Mafia boss, in order to save his friends life. However, the only thing that stands in his way, is an onslaught of the worlds deadliest assassins.

Before I get too deep into this review, it has to be put on record that I am a huge Scott Adkins fan, so if I end up gushing over his films or even Adkins himself, you know why. His films are dreadfully underated, especially in the action genre, and he is an action star that deserves much more recognition and praise than what he receives.

But anyway on to the review. Accident Man: Hitman’s Holiday is jam packed full of phenomenal action scenes. The choreography was phenomenal, the cinematography was pristine and the physicality of all the actors was of course exceptional. The camera was used brilliantly during the action. The camera moved with the action, feeling fast and snappy that only accentuated each hit, making the action much more immersive and engaging. As an action movie fan, its so hard not to love this movie.

This film is non stop and moves by at a very quick pace, which only adds to the films fun and frenetic energy. Perhaps this is helped by its short run time, but for my fellow action fans out there, you are not gonna want this experience to end.

The characters are more over the top and simply more ridiculous than the first. Lets do a quick head count shall we. We have Freya Du Preeze (Zara Phythian), aka The Angel of Death, a highly skilled assassin comparable to the likes of James Bond and John Wick (of course, because every assassin film needs one). We also get introduced to Yendi (Faisal Mohammed), The Vampire and yes, you guessed it, he loves the taste of blood. Next up, we have Silas (Peter Lee Thomas) the San Fransisco Strangler, an ex model who has an odd taste for strangling. Then we are introduced to the most insane of them all, Poco The Clown (Beau Fowler), a clown who is invulnerable to any sort of pain. And finally we are introduced to a Shinobi esque warrior Oyumi (Andy Long). These characters are all insane, hilarious and downright ridiculous, but it makes Accident Man 2 so much more fun and entertaining.

Outside of the action, Mike Fallon’s character gets far more development, allowing him to open up, make friends and deal with the guilt he feels after everything that happened in the first flick. By no means is Accident Man 2 a deep character study, but its not trying to be. The film attempts to add more layers to it and it genuinly works.

The biggest surprise was the films comedy and wit. The first Accident Man isn’t necessarily that funny, but Accident Man 2 is downright hilarious, landing every joke and insult brilliantly.

All in all, Accident Man: Hitman’s Holiday is a joyous thrill ride, presenting phenomenal action scenes, hilarious comedy and over the top comedy. The film flies by and is incredibly short, which does work in the films favour, even if you are an action fan like myself and are just clambering for so much more.
