The Place For The Latest Movie Reviews
From the director of BANGKOK ADRENALINE comes a non-stop action story that starts with a deathmatch, and takes it to the next level. Get ready. Welcome to the Killing Chamber - a high-tech bunker where captured international assassins are ready to do what they do best, just to survive. If they're going to break out of this concrete hell, they must duel each other, fight deadly ninjas, and battle against gangs of masked maniacs. If they manage to survive that, they will have to confront Snakehead: the lethal, deranged top dog who will stop at nothing to KILL 'EM ALL!
Kill 'Em All" is an action film about a group of top assassins who are kidnapped and taken to a place in Bangkok known as "The Killing Chamber." Locked in a concrete room 4 men and one woman are then introduced by the leader of this vicious game, Snakehead who tells them that in order to be let free they will have to fight each other until there is only one left. The plot is pretty simple but you don't really watch a movie like this for an engaging story-line. Action is what you want to see and there is plenty of fast-paced action that should please any fan of the genre.
The character development isn't half bad here, it's important so the audience can care for these characters in one way or another, a few you will root for while a few others you will hope meet a quick death.
With an action film such as this you obviously need a cast that can kick major butt but you also want the cast to able to act as well and be convincing. The Cast Director, Raimund Huber assembled here is one to die for. Johnny Messner, The Legendary Chia Hui Liu, The late, great Joe Lewis, Tim Man, Ammara Siripong, Brahim Achabbakhe and Erik Markus Schuetz are all terrific in the film. Some of the dialogue is a bit cheesy but the action scenes are all very well done, they are all fast paced and at times brutal.
One thing I did like about the plot was the twist it introduced towards the end, you find out a bit more about a few of the characters who may or not have a secret or two of their own. If you like action then I highly recommend picking this up, it's worth it just for the last performance of Joe Lewis and the master himself, Gordon Liu, His fight scene towards the end of the film is epic. Available on DVD and Blu-ray with no Special Features to speak of but the film is worth it all by itself.
