A bystander who intervenes to help a woman being harassed by a group of men becomes the target of a vengeful drug lord arms manufacturer.

Highly recommended if you like lots of violence ...

A little change to the plot line and you have: Shoot 'Em Up.

The Cloud Atlas.

A not bad at all adaptation of the David Mitchell novel by the same name. A quantum metaphysical romp through several centuries of linked souls and events. Some remarkably good performances by Halle Berry, Jim Broadbent, and especially Korean actress Doona Bae for her portrayal of a clone by the name of Sonmi-451.
Saw this lately. Did really enjoy it, and would probably watch again. Was a little confused initially with the very quick changes from one story to the next, but the stories were different enough, and strong enough that I started to enjoy that aspect of it -- was done very playfully, and humourously at times.
I generally don't have much time for Hollywood films -- it's not a snobbery thing (I don't have much time for "arty" films either), but this one was good :up:

Good short (15 minutes) written by Jenette McCurdy of iCarly fame. Worth a look, IMO.
