First, he's a nice guy named Chad who teaches women how to stretch... but he's also a bad guy thug named Alex. They're twin brothers, except that they don't know about one another because when they were six months old some bad guys killed their parents. Thankfully a guy named Frankie (Geoffrey Lewis) was able to shoot a bad guy named Moon (Bolo Yeung) in the face and save Chad, whereas Alex was dropped off at a French convent in Hong Kong (?). So, they grew up leading separate lives but once they realize what's happened, they hang out with Alex's girlfriend Danielle (Alonna Shaw) at a giant abandoned house, blow up a few Mercedes Benz sedans and then eventually get around to fighting the bad guys, led by Moon and his employer Raymond Zhang (Philip Chan) and his vicious fema...<a href="http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/read.php?ID=73861">Read the entire review &raquo;</a></p></p></b></i> </span></td></tr></table></blockquote><p>&nbsp;</p><div style="font-weight:bold;font-size:15px">Recommended</div><blockquote><table><tr><td valign="top"><a href="http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/read.php?ID=73859"><img src="http://images.dvdtalk.com/covers/B07NB8XR3K.jpg" border="0" style="margin-right:5px;margin-bottom:5px" align="left" /></a><a href="http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/read.php?ID=73859"><strong>Happy Death Day 2U (Blu-ray)</strong></a><br /><small>by Jesse Skeen</small><hr /><span class="rss:item"> <p><a href="http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/read.php?ID=73859"> </a><p>Well, once again I'm forced to begin this review with a spoiler warning for those who haven't seen the prior film to this. As this sequel picks up right where <a href="https://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/72756/happy-death-day/"><i>Happy Death Day</i></a> ends, it's pretty hard not to give away any of that movie's surprises. Having said that, <i>Happy Death Day 2U</i> goes in a few different directions before deciding what it's really going to be about. At first glance it seems like Ryan (Phi Vu), the obnoxious roommate, is going to be the center of this one as he first gets killed un-brutally enough to keep a PG-13 rating, then finds himself alive in the morning and repeating the same day over again just as Tree (Jessica Rothe) did in the first movie. We soon find out exactly what's been causing this whole repeating-day thing though- Ryan and his fellow science geeks have been working on a contraption o...<a href="http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/read.php?ID=73859">Read the entire review &raquo;</a></p></p></b></i> </span></td></tr></table></blockquote><p>&nbsp;</p><div style="font-weight:bold;font-size:15px">Rent It</div><blockquote><table><tr><td valign="top"><a href="http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/read.php?ID=73860"><img src="http://images.dvdtalk.com/covers/B07MLB1L54.jpg" border="0" style="margin-right:5px;margin-bottom:5px" align="left" /></a><a href="http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/read.php?ID=73860"><strong>The Man With The Magic Box</strong></a><br /><small>by Francis Rizzo III</small><hr /><span class="rss:item"> <p><a href="http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/read.php?ID=73860"> </a><style><!--#reviewcopy img {margin: 1rem 0rem; border: 1px solid #000; -webkit-box-shadow: 0px 5px 23px -6px rgba(0,0,0,0.75);-moz-box-shadow: 0px 5px 23px -6px rgba(0,0,0,0.75);box-shadow: 0px 5px 23px -6px rgba(0,0,0,0.75);}#reviewcopy h2 {font-size: 1rem; border-bottom: 2px dotted #CCC; padding-bottom: 4px; margin-bottom: 3px; display: table; text-transform: uppercase; margin-top: 2rem;}#reviewcopy {font-size: 1rem; line-height: 1.5rem; padding-left: 1rem; padding-right: 1rem;}#reviewcopy .caption {font-size: 0.8rem;}--></style><div id="reviewcopy"><h2>In 10 Words or Less</h2>A beautiful, complicated sci-fi political statement<center><p> <p></centeR><h2>The Movie</h2>It's not necessary to have a working knowledge of Poland's recent political history to get the point of <i>The Man with the Magic...<a href="http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/read.php?ID=73860">Read the entire review &raquo;</a></p></p></b></i> </span></td></tr></table></blockquote>
