Don't let the title fool you, or the cover art featuring high kicking, swords, suits and spiked hair all set in high contrast black and white. THE CITY OF VIOLENCE fails to live up to the level of excitement it promises, yet still manages to be a solid, if predictable, film. You all know the story mill by this point... the death of a friend brings together a wayward band of brothers all bent on discovering the truth behind the murder. Was it just punks out for a thrill kill or something deeper, darker and more mysterious? Place your bets on black and spin that wheel and hold on tight. You'll need a firm girp to get through some of the most wooden and by the numbers staging of plot and story (some of which, while stock, does manage to offer up at least one original moment set back in 1987), all of which goes on too long, with too much talk and too much revealed so early that by the time you get to the BIG SURPRISE, you've seen it coming a mile away. But what of the promised violence? Not bad. It moves, it flows, it features some very creative run, tumble and kicking action that you almost can overlook the fact that the first big set piece of the film is a wholesale lift from THE WARRIORS (that and a FATBOY SLIM video). A great movie and one worth paying respect to, but placed in here seems like overkill, and something of a cheat. Normally films from the other side of the world tend to set the bar, not limbo under under them, but THE CITY OF VIOLENCE seem content to follow the groove and dance to someone else's tune. Also, there's not enough of it, said violence that is. For a story so standard, you'd think there'd be less of it and more action, but this is not the case. For the brave, take the time to watch the film with the english dub track on while running the english subtitles underneath, at times what's being said and what is being displayed seems like two different films. The subtitles give more background details into motives (very helpful), while the dub breezes along like a Cliff's Notes version of the film. It's interesting to view at least once. Although there is nothing very original about THE CITY OF VIOLENCE, it is a solid film. And if you've already bought the best, then this one will fit neatly in the the rest. For collectors only.
