    Wilber Jr has discovered these films recently & is now after more of the same.

    There's the obvious IF 2 & 3 plus bullet in the head & the killer. But what else can you recommend & which version since there seem to be 1001 different versions of many of these films!

    Tiger on the Beat is good, comedy action and stars Chow Yun Fat.

    Are you looking more for gun play type genre or Jap films in general? There's quite a few worth checking out but aren't necessarily gun play but I shall list all anyway. These are all set in more modern times (no period pieces but I can recomend some of these too should you wish - musa the warrior, Hero to name two):-


    Returner
    P.T.U.
    Natural City
    So Close
    Battle Royale I&II
    Heroic Duo
    The Mission
    Running Out Of Time
    Guns & Talks
    Wasabi (With Jean Reno:))
    Brother
    Full Contact
    Full Time Killer
    Kyouki no Sakura



    That'll keep you busy for a while. Let Me know if you want any more recomendations:)

    "Returner
    Battle Royale I&II"

    I'd be interested to see what people think of these as I will be buying them at some point this year.

    Returner is a copy of just about every sci-fi film ever made (Terminator, ET, Independance day and matrix). It has plenty of action and is a out and out pop corn flick that I thoroughly enjoyed. Don't expect a deep story line or fantastic acting as this is not really what it's about. If your looking for something light that's gona kill a couple of hours then this is just what the doctor ordered:)

    BR I&II are very violent with lots of action and gore based around the idea of survival of the fitest. It's a game show where the only winers are those that survived to the end:eek: It has black humor a plenty with good acting and has lots of ideas not usually coverd this side of the pond. Both are worth adding to your collection:smashin:

    Thanks a lot for taking the time to do that.

    Very positive reaction to the films so far from a number of people - definite additons towards the end of the year.
