It looks great. … (But) it didn’t weave a story that drew me in and they made some choices that I felt did the film disservice.” – DocDirector: Tommy Bertelsen Writer: Kristen Ruhlin Cast: Lily Newmark, Eileen Davies, Kristen Ruhlin

“Crazy and bloody as hell! This was a lot of fun! … I was really, really, really digging it!” – Vanessa “It’s impossible for this not to remind you of the Raid films. … There’s a lot of those types of really long, involved, neverending martial arts battles.

It is insane.” – DocDirector/Writer: Timo Tjahjanto Cast: Iko Uwais, Joe Taslim, Julie Estelle
