    The comments of several "10" reviewers are as ridiculous and phony as the film itself, and that is no small feat. Might as well have been titled Soh Soh Dum, or Wha Ta Dud.

    Not a shot wasted. Why wait for "Kill Bill"? This film has amazing density and depth. "So Close" makes "Full Throttle" look like "The Lion King".

  1. Cory Yuen's So Close is a kind of Hong Kong martial-arts variation on the Charlie's Angels movies, only better.

    Slickly packaged, unashamedly exploitative popcorn movie.
