Welcome to Throw Down: An Action Cinema Podcast, a brand new show from your friends at The Twin Geeks, dedicated entirely to the extensive reaches of action on film. Hosts, critics, and action enthusiasts Jack and Vaughn get together to explore and deconstruct their favorite genre, one film at a time. From contemporary blockbuster epics to underground grindhouse martial arts with a little bit of everything in between, this podcast is here to cover it all.
On the inaugural episode of the show, it’s Timo Tjahjanto’s hyperviolent Indonesian martial arts splatterfest, a host favorite mach speed brutal action stunner. Starring martial arts legends Joe Taslim and Iko Uwais, this bloody, bone-snapping triad odyssey comes off the back of a filmography of twisted horror, infusing the dynamic energy of The Raid franchise with visceral, gory mayhem. The guys talk what makes the fights tick, the film’s crazy kaleidoscope of action influence, and what cements The Night Comes For Us as a modern masterpiece of action.
