"Red HAWK" is a movie based on the Korean comic book titled "Redhawk" published by Dai Won Publishing which is a pretty cool action movie. It has similarities to "Dragon Ball Z", "Fist of the Northstar" and "Ninja scroll".
Red Hawk leaves a double life. He is a brother of one of the former Five dragons members, and an everyman in his native village. Red Hawks English translation seems a little bit off in places. One such example is when the father of Honglyung is found dead. A normal person would approach Honglyung and say something like;
'I am so sorry, we have found your father on the outskirts of the town, he is not coming home'
or something even softer and less dramatic. However in Red Hawk she is told like this;
'Your father has been murdered!'
Talk about trying to break it to her gently! There are several instances where the translation falls down, but overall it is an entertaining story with a good cast of interesting characters and mythos.
That's a debate for another time. As for "Red Hawk", it features awesome fight scenes with a character with the hair and look of Super Saiyajin 3 of "Dragon Ball Z", the characters which remind me of "Fist of the Northstars" and the challenges of opponenents similar to "Ninja Scroll".
As for DVD special features, there is a photo gallery, character bio and the standard Manga Entertainment trailers.
Featuring blistering martial arts sequences with extraordinary character designs, Red Hawk is an exciting, action packed animation thriller, which once again is now available for £5 so you might as well add it to your collection.
