Hey, what the hell do you know? It’s time once again to talk about this weekend’s new movie releases! This time around, we’ll take a look at “The Warlords” and “Clash of the Titans“. Two movies enter! One movie leaves! Which one will you see?
First up, “The Warlords”, featuring Jet Li, Andy Lau, and Takeshi Kaneshiro. Remember when Jet Li said he was done making those historical kung fu movies where his head is shaved except for that long queue in the back? Yeah. He lied. Well, this isn’t strictly a kung fu movie, but damn if he isn’t sporting that ancient Chinese warrior look for this. It’s a film on a grand scale, with gigantic combat scenes, lots of sword work, cannon-fire explosions, and grimacing into each other’s faces — pretty much what you want from a Jet Li flick, am I right? The trailer gives just enough to get you interested, but not so much that you know what happens even before seeing it. Check it out below:
Next up, “Clash of the Titans”, starring Sam “Avatar” Worthington. I was prepared to write this off until I saw the latest trailer for it, which made me grudgingly admit to being interested. For one thing, it’s in 3D, and I’m ready for some serious 3D monster mash action. For another thing, I watched a clip of the new Kalibos kicking ass and being generally tough-as-nails, which is not at all what I remember of the character from the original movie. Finally, did you see the size of the Kraken in this? Some have ridiculed the actual look of the thing, but hell, I’m not gonna argue that. Humongous, tentacled, ring-toothed, that’s all I need.
