Thoughts on Deed of Death
Thoughts –Deed of Death is a Malaysian action movie that will see a family come together to show off all their martial arts skills, when it comes to fighting of a gang that are trying to reclaim a debt one of them has created. When it comes to the motivation, we are used to seeing a family fight for their own, it is an easy choice and one that works really well for the idea. We get to see how the three siblings are all skilled fighters and will use their skills to overcome the numbers games, even if certain sequences can feel samey with just the different environment they take place in. saying that, the fights do looks like we get a mix of hard hits that look truly painfully, along with moments that do look like the timing wasn’t completely in line with the choreography. The film does everything a fun martial arts film should, plenty of fights, a simple story of overcoming numbers and spiritual belief in what is being achieved with the training.
