Ramly at War Begins - Review on Cinema Crazed
Posted on at
"I think with a lot of time, more resources, a bigger budget, and a feature length, director Juliane Block is capable directing and creating a modern martial arts masterpiece. Because if you watch "Ramly at War" you'll discover that Block knows exactly what the hell she's doing both on-screen and behind the camera. She's able to compress a full fledged story that acts as a prologue to a wider narrative, family dynamic, rich complex characters, and very sharply edited martial arts sequences in barely twenty minutes, and I was so engrossed through most of the film that I could have sat there for two hours and not noticed the time passing. Action movies are some of the most difficult genres to tack on to mini-budget productions in a short time span and regardless of how talented a director is, most of the times the ultimate product can be a complete misfire. "Ramly at War" has unabashed ambition to be only one part of a humongous trilogy with an epic scope and director Block provides us with that glimpse that allows us to see what she is capable of for action audiences and simultaneously offering anyone a chance who is interested in funding a bigger film with the same plot."
