Call Me King full movie review - This is not a good movie.
This movie could have been good. When I started watching I thought maybe the heavy handed dialogue was setting up a crime epic; maybe they will harken back to the old kung fu movies. sadly, this is just another movie that is trying to hard.
To get a good fight scene shot you'll want a panned out camera that features the participants, something to give you a sense for the geometry of the room and what people are doing where and when. This film's fights have that shaky camera mixed with lots of quick cuts to mask the gaps in kayfabe.
The story is....just meh, It focuses on a group of gunmen that do something or other while their leader talks slow and menacingly to everyone. Apparently two of them are brothers of an ousted dictator or something, not that that really means anything to the plot or ending(I honestly don't know if there was a main antagonist outside of stupidity).
There is a side plot where a recently dumped woman(by one of the "strap set")is taken in for training by a "tough and free" "badass" assassin lady. The acting in these scenes is sooo cringeworthy I'd be surprised if it's not up for a razzie award.
I would have preferred a movie focusing on the history and relationship between the eye-patched assassin, the "tough" Asian lady gunman, and her sister.
