So... will this Donnie Yen sequel be partial schlock or total schlock?

The Last Dragon is a sort of time capsule. It's so era-specific with its plot elements--early music videos, a Soul Train analog, arcade culture, grindhouse cinemas, a song by DeBarge--that it couldn't be anything but an 80s m... read feature

Newest San Andreas trailer lays it on thick

Review: Taken 3
