    REVIEW: 'Sabotage' ★&#9733

  • 'Raid 2': the most violent movie ever made?

    "The Raid 2" is the most violent movie ever made. The exploding heads, slit, gurgling throats and claw-hammer crunches and tears are so excessive as to make the works of Sam Peckinpah, Quentin Tarantino and torture porn king Eli Roth seem almost quaint in...
