Woah. Why is Cube on this list? That film is far from terrible. The acting is pretty hammy, and it was made on a low budget, but that doesn't make it
a terrible movie. If you can look past the cheesy performances, it is highly original, has a wonderful atmosphere and is brimming with a wonderful
underbelly of subtext. I'd go so far as to say it's definitely one of the best sci-fi films of the 90s. What it lacks in a Hollywood budget and
special effects team, it more than makes up for in ingenuity.
I disagree with Ong Bak as well. There are a host of shockingly bad Kung Fu movies out there to choose from, but I wouldn't call Ong Bak one of them.
It's a gem of a martial arts film. It has great production values, awesome set pieces, and amazing choreography. So, the plot could probably be
written down on a matchbox, and it's all about style rather than substance. But, that is the basis of the genre. You don't watch a martial arts film
for the character development. Ultimately, I think this one comes down to taste, rather than just good or bad. Otherwise, the implication is that
there is no such thing as a 'good' Kung Fu film, which I would very much disagree with.
