In the late 1990s, an adrenalized wave of South Korean genre cinema exploded onto western screens. This manhunt procedural from Lee Myung-se was among the most stylistically inventive, an eye-popping thriller that marries film noir to Hong Kong action for a woozy fever dream of unadulterated pulp.

Bathed in blues and yellows—the colors of Maltese fishing boats—Alex Camilleri’s searingly authentic debut on a vanishing trade embraces a cast of nonactors and real-life fishermen.

Okay so maybe in real life armed troops in hazmat suits didn't raid small towns,…

Still having fun with the Last Drive-In and this is absolutely a bonkers Italian 5 star movie. It’s just nonstop ridiculousness and crazy over the top gore. It doesn’t make any sense and it peaks with a helicopter crashing into a theater so it’s just truly great. I couldn’t even begin to guess the number of times I’ve watched this.
