Description After he's attacked on the street at night by a roving motorcycle gang, timid bookkeeper Casey (Jesse Eisenberg) joins a neighborhood karate studio to learn how to protect himself. Under the watchful eye of a charismatic instructor, Sensei (Alessandro Nivola), and hardcore brown belt Anna (Imogen Poots), Casey gains a newfound sense of confidence for the first time in his life. But when he attends Sensei's mysterious night classes, he discovers a sinister world of fraternity, brutality and hyper-masculinity, presenting a journey that places him squarely in the sights of his enigmatic new mentor.

Well, the first thing that jumps out about this film is the music. The opening sequence, with a jazz orchestra, "Sugar" by Wyclef Jean, is absolutely brilliant. Then, at the very beginning of the film, with the seemingly slow-moving "Something About Mary" and "Disco Inferno," it's a complete switch, with the opening themes of "Sugar" and "Disco Inferno" in a very fast-paced, jazzy tempo, as well as the terrific "Disco Inferno" theme. The second thing that jumps out is the writing and directing. Director Richard Fleischer (who directed the great "Adaptation" and "Loser") has a nice style of filming, and his directing is very good. However, it's the writing that is really, really, really, really good. There is a lot of humor, and a lot of really great writing, especially for a thriller. The writing is very funny and entertaining, the story is very original, and the characters are very likable. The characters in this film are very interesting and interesting, with a lot of depth and a lot of development. You really don't know who the characters are, and you can relate to them. "Sugar" is the best performance in this film. Another character is a really great performance by a young, very talented actress named Anna Kendrick. The two main characters are very likable, they're likeable, and they're very likable. Their relationship is really nice, and they're so fun to watch. Then, the supporting characters are also very good, especially that guy who seems to be an FBI agent. The two main characters are very likable, and the supporting characters are really good, and they're very fun to watch. The acting is really great, but "Sugar" is really great for the writing. And the story is really good. "Sugar" is a very funny, very interesting thriller that's really very good, and it's one of those movies that you can watch over and over again. It's really, really good.
