I mean you dont have to like it....it wasn't my favorite Kitano film but worse Asian film ever....not even close.
I said what “I’ve seen.”
You arent versatile in the regions films then.
I wouldn’t have made this thread if I didn’t watch a lot of Asian flicks.
And I don’t need to see every flick out of Asia.
There are some films worst than that but...
I know, but I haven’t seen ‘em.
Skip the American Scenes....they are wack.

Donnie Yen to awaken his ambitious ‘Sleeping Dogs’ in 2019 | cityonfire.com
I'm really looking forward to this. They couldn't have chosen a better actor to play Wei Shen
Tua have you played this game or heard of it?
Considering Donnie Yen’s (Chasing the Dragon, Kung Fu Jungle) involvement in two high-profile Hollywood projects (xXx: Return of Xander Cage, Star Wars: Rogue One), it was inevitable that he would sooner, rather than later, headline his own Hollywood film.
Almost two years ago, it was reported that the Hong Kong superstar would be starring in a film adaptation of Square Enix’s hit video game Sleeping Dogs, produced by Neal Moritz (Fast and Furious franchise).
Many thought Sleeping Dogs would ultimately become vaporware, (i.e. Noodle Man), but back in February on FB, Yen himself finally confirmed the film with the message: “Sometimes great things take a bit of time. Sleeping Dog is (in) motion, you guys ready for this?”, followed by an image collage that matched his previous films with screen shots from the video game.
According to Deadline: Sleeping Dogs follows an undercover police officer (Yen) on a mission to take down one of the most powerful and dangerous criminal organizations in the world: the notorious Triads. The movie based on an action video game is set in Hong Kong and focuses on martial arts fighting, racing, boat chases… and shooting while doing all of that.
Sleeping Dogs is a lot more synonymous with Yen’s Hong Kong-style of filming than what’s described in its plot. Asian film expert/producer Mike Leeder (Ultimate Justice) was responsible for voice casting Sleeping Dogs when the game was known as its preliminary title True Crime: Hong Kong. Leeder also produced/coordinated the game’s live-action trailer (video posted below) with late actor/martial artist Darren Shahlavi (Kickboxer: Vengeance, Ip Man 2), who choreographed the action.
We’ll keep you updated on Sleeping Dogs as we learn more. In the meantime, Yen and crew are putting finishing touches on Ip Man 4, and he’s about to start filming scenes for Disney’s Mulan. His latest, Big Brother, is getting a domestic release on August 16, 2018, followed by a U.S. release by Well Go USA on August 31.
This deserves its own thread
