No Man's Land Review


Very Good
Patton would have been disgusted.

Modern wars (at least, those not involving the U.S.) aren't fought man to man, or even tank to tank.

Soul Assassin Review


Weak
Soul Assassin? No, it's not a new kung fu video game, it's a thriller with Skeet Ulrich in the lead. Yes, Skeet Ulrich is still working, and he's alongside Kristy Swanson in this impossible-to-explain business/corruption/espionage/vengeance movie. Virtually the entire movie is shot in wierd blue mood lighting, with flashbacks, jump-cuts, and a gaggle of characters to follow. Not entirely worth the effort.

Bosnian writer-director Danis Tanovic boils down the ironic truths of centuries-old enmity in his homeland and presents them in a meaningfully funny story about two soldiers from opposite sides of the war, trapped together between enemy lines in an abandoned trench.
