Kites: The Remix Blu-Ray Review

Synopsis: Hot, sexy, exotic, and wild are the only words to describe this "lovers-on-the-lam blast of pure pulp escapism." (The New York Times) Indian superstar Hrithic Roshan stars as J, a Las Vegas hustler engaged to the daughter of the city's most powerful and dangerous casino owner. But all bets are off when he falls in love with the ravishing Natasha (Barbara Mori), an illegal immigrant engaged to J's jealous and violent future brother-in-law. When their illicit romance is discovered, J and Natasha flee for the border with the police and relentless hired killers on their trail. Pulse-pounding action and sensational musical numbers propel this passionate love story to its stunning conclusion. This special edition contains the "deliriously entertaining" (Variety) full-length version that became the first Bollywood movie to make the American box office Top Ten, and Kites: The Remix, the edgier and sexier English language version produced by director Brett Ratner (Rush Hour, X-Men: The Last Stand).

Review: We watch a lot of movies here at the Legion.  Over and over again we see the same predictable plot...the characters go through the motions, but we know how its going to end up.  We even know whats going to get them there!  They say there are no new ideas.  While I do believe that statement, there are new ways and means of getting to your ends.  This is proven by the Bollywood-style crossover film Kites: The Remix.

Starring Bollywood star Hrithik Roshan, Kites is an English/Hindi/Spanish language film that really showcases the over the top nature of foreign filmmaking.  The action is ACTION and the love is LOVE.  I mean its serious.  No laze-fare attitudes in Kites.  Running from the mob, fighting for true love..its all here and its pretty bad ass.  Don't let the title fool you, this one is worth a watch.
