Its another double feature! Dev Patel's directorial debut just came out and we could not stop ourselves from talking about its hong kong influences as well as what the movie brings to a table crowded with John Wick wannabes. Spoiler alert, we don't think its a John Wick type movie, but come find out what else we have to say about it. Then, we follow it with a look into Taxi Hunter, a 1993 "category 3" movie directed by Herman Yau and featuring the legendary Anthony Wong. Its a movie with a lot of charm but also a good occasion to look into Category 3 movies, what they are, and the movie's lineage in the vigilante genre alongside Martin Scorcese's Taxi Driver released in 1976 and Joel Schumacher's Falling down, also released in 1993!
