The Place For The Latest Movie Reviews
Before the West entered World War II, a Japanese death cult called the Temple of Hades is ordered to aid in the spiritual destruction of China. Their method: abduct their enemies' children and train them as killers for the Emperor. Young Vajra was especially gifted, but swears a secret oath of revenge when his brother dies. Now the greatest assassin in the temple, Vajra escapes to China and begins his quest to protect the innocent, and destroy the ones responsible for making him a living weapon.
The synopsis above just about covers the story, to add anything more would only spoil certain parts of the film for those waiting to see it. The plot is pretty simple so it is easy to follow but it also has a few twists and turns along the way.
The film does a good job telling the story and developing the main characters so that everyone can feel for them in one way or another and the cast did a great job playing their characters and making them believable. You will have no problem hating the villain and rooting for the hero here.
But lets face it everyone wants to see action in a Martial Arts film and I can gladly tell you that the film contains plenty of fight scenes. The fights are full of energy, creative and exciting, that along with an engaging story makes "The Wrath of Vajra" a winner. If you are a fan of Asian cinema then this is a must see but even if you are not I still recommend checking it out because the fight scenes are not only done with Martial Arts there is also some good MMA style fighting going on as well.
The film is available on DVD and Blu-ray with Special Features that include:
Original Language: Japanese, Mandarin
Dubbed Language: English
Subtitle: English, French
Extra: Making of, Trailer
All films should be watched in their original language but having a English Dubbed track is very important for those that do not like having to read subtitles, which is a lot more people than one might thing. Having the English audio here makes the film more accessible which is a good thing. Production wise the film looks and sounds amazing but that is always expected from Asian cinema and it never lets me down. You can order the DVD HERE and the Blu-ray HERE.
"The Wrath of Vajra" is one of the best Martial Art films I have seen in some time, it tells an interested story but it lets the action take center stage which was a good move. If you are looking for a deep story look elsewhere but if you want to see some kick-ass action then pick this up today.
