Many people still consider video watching a great way of loosing and having a good time. If you are one particular people who enjoy watching films and do so every time you get yourself a chance, you probably already know that the periods when you waited in line with the video store only to find that movie you wanted to see was not on stock are over. Or at least they should be. Web based movie rentals have been available for quite some time now, and more and more people prefer this form of renting movies, as it is more convenient.

I was taught four rules... The Pang Brothers remake their 2000 Asian film for the American audience with mixed results. Starring Nic Cage, film follows Cage's hit-man to Bangkok where he is to complete a number of hits. He tells us via narration that he has a set of rules that he follows so as to survive in the "business". He then promptly breaks his own codes and his life comes under threat. That's pretty much it as regards plotting. The Pang's bring much visual style to the picture, and show themselves to be adept at action sequences, but it all feels so familiar. Action movies are rarely going to bring new stuff to the table, they often, as is the case here, are kinetic popcorn pictures missing some emotional depth to marry up with the carnage. Thus this is not a film to be sought out by any action junkies looking for something new to add to their collections. As it happens Cage is fine and broody, managing to blend hard ass machismo with vulnerable traits. He, and the filmic style make it above average, even if ultimately it's instantly forgettable afterwards. 6/10
