Alright, disappointment time?

Triple Threat (2019)

 

triple-threat-369158l-576x0-w-a3f0929e.j

 

Directed by: Jesse V Johnson

Fight Choreography: Tim Man

Starring: Tony Jaa, Iko Uwais, Scott Adkins, Tiger Chen, Michael J White, JeeJa Yanin, Michael Bisping, Celina Jade

Box office: Direct-to-video

 

My rating for this movie: ★★★½

 

Synopsis: A hit contract is taken out on a billionaire's daughter who is intent on bringing down a major crime syndicate. A down and out team of mercenaries must take on a group of professional assassins and stop them before they kill their target.

 

Could have been worse. This movie made very little sense, but we were 5 watching and I must say, it did a pretty good job at entertaining all of us. Tony Jaa's english is definitely in the "so bad it's good" category because we laughed out loud a few times. Almost every time he opened his mouth to be honest.

 

Was it good? Yes, I think so. Should it have been a lot better? Hell yes. It easily could and should have been an all-time classic in the genre.

 

The bad guys' plan is the worst plan I've ever seen. Or plans, since they had many. And they're ALL terrible. The only thing remotely interesting about this movie is the reverse double cross logic that happens... but still, it's played poorly so yeah.

 

 

What about the fights?

 

I thought the fights were done really well. Few cuts, good choreography. Could have been better and longer but I was very satisfied with what we got. Each fighter had their own style, and the last fight between Tony Jaa and Scott Adkins was hella great! Scott is the man, always so impressive.

 

But there were way too many shoot-outs. I usually don't mind them too much but the ending shoot-out in particular was drawn out, ridiculous, and useless. By the way, is it even possible to waste JeeJa Yanin more than this movie does? While we're at it, also stop casting Celina Jade in damsel in distress roles?

Bautista's been at this game for quite some time if any of you recall Man with the Iron Fists.

I don't expect this "crossover" to disappoint.

 

I also plan to get around to these two:

Finally watched something featuring Eric Jacobus

 

If you haven't heard of this guy, I suggest watching this short video of his.

 

 

Gonna watch everything from him eventually. Amazing fight!

I'm hoping the trailer is cut horribly, but it still gives off the worst kind of B movie vibes.

I had no idea this was a show. 😲

Finally watched The Prodigal Son (about time) and man, I have to agree here, the final fight is excellent!

 

 

Frankie Chan is virtually a complete unknown and yet look at that! What a guy. I've seen him in only one other movie, Outlaw Brothers, and he was amazing as well, I recommend it since it also stars the incredible Yukari Oshima.

 

To the surprise of no one, Yuen Biao is also a rockstar here.

Glad you enjoyed it! Easily one of my all time best scenes, It's burned into my brain.

Saw this recently, very unique, creative and stylish fight scene even though the choreography isn't anything to write home about. It's just fun and interesting, sort of drunken muay thai.

 

 

If you don't know who that fighter is, watch Chocolate by the director of Ong Bak
