Martin01;188972 said:- The fight scenes are very bad. Ok, there are a lot and they are very long and not dark, but that's the only good thing. The most time there is his double and the editing is just bad and annoying. I absolutely don't liked it. Ok, they have more energy and speed like them in Attack Force or Ticker f.e., but they are just bad. Horrible to watch. The only watchable fight is the last one in the movie.

Martin01;188972 said:It's hard to make a rating for this movie. There are very good and also very bad points.
I make it short:
+ Extremly well optical/look. The movie looks better than Pistol Whipped and light-years better than Urban Justice. I think the movie has the best look in years. I was surprised. And it's really not too dark.
+ Good locations
+ Interesting story
+ All in all good actors. Not as good as in Pistol Whipped but it was ok. His partner was very good and Steven looks that he had fun to shoot the movie.
+ Lot of action
+ Not one scene Stock Footage
+ good music
- The fight scenes are very bad. Ok, there are a lot and they are very long and not dark, but that's the only good thing. The most time there is his double and the editing is just bad and annoying. I absolutely don't liked it. Ok, they have more energy and speed like them in Attack Force or Ticker f.e., but they are just bad. Horrible to watch. The only watchable fight is the last one in the movie.
- The editing is in general very very bad and excessive, I hope "Ruslan" will be better in that point.
- Some dubbing, but not as much and bad as in Attack Force. But no guarantee on that.
Finally I think Jeff King is a very good director, the look really surprised me, specially when you know the budget. But they should never work with Cinetel again, because their editing is just extremly bad.
It's hard to make a rating, but I will give a 6/10, with hopes that "Ruslan" will be better (and I think it will be), because Cinetel is not involved there.

hofmae;188997 said:My detailed review will follow in about 3-4 hours. I've seen now some minutes and it looks great. There are stunt doubles but you don't see them well. The action is unfortunately very, very "stylisch" that means, extremely fast cuts and slowmo / fastmo effects, but i only watched 5 minutes and there is already a fight scene where steven throws a guys around a room for about 2 minutes. awesome.
Martin01;189014 said:I personally prefer the fights in Kill Switch compared to the boring ones like in Attack Force, Flight of Fury, Ticker, Black Dawn or Out of Reach.
I mean the fights have speed and energy. But of course I don't provide the use of doubles.
And of course it's good that there are a lot of fights. I mean look at movies like Attack Force and others, they are just boring. Kill Switch is not boring, that's a plus.
The choreography of the gunfights is very good and the camera work is great (aside from the fight scenes).
