Movie Review: Resistance

With the allure of period pieces, a sickening inevitability of historical dramas, there comes a certain quality control.

His latest starring role in The Art of Self-Defense sees him tackle conventional culture stereotypes, learning karate and gaining confidence within himself and his abilities, […]
