    Batman: Soul of the Dragon

    ★★★

    An animated spiritual sequel to Enter the Dragon where Jim Kelly didn't get done dirty and lived to become the Bronze Tiger, while Bruce Lee leaned further into the "Asian James Bond" vibe.
    The aforementioned avatars for those 70's Kung Fu greats (actually named "Richard Dragon" & "Ben Turner") are joined by Nancy Kwan (here named Lady Shiva and voiced by Kelly Hu) and they kick some ass to generic 70's waka-waka.

    Batman also turns up and his frequently reworked ninja…

  • Wrath of Man

    Wrath of Man

    ★★★½

    The first ten minutes was barely tolerable with an unending stream of unfunny banter. The most homophobic, misogynistic material this side of 80's Shane Black but without his keen edge. Holt McCallany is unnervingly like a the videogame tutorial NPC; so much so that I had to double check the wife wasn't scowling at me so I'd know I wasn't playing a video game.

    Once it finds it rhythm though, hard hitting action sequences combine with a high intensity thriller?
