Criminally Underrated: Paul W.S. Anderson

I could (and, hopefully someday, will) go longer and more in-depth on Paul W.S. Anderson given the time and inclination, but for now this is a brief overview of one of the handful of interesting genre filmmakers working in America today, certainly one of the few who makes films designed for multiplexes and makes them worth watching in any way, shape or form. There's no denying his scripts are stiff, but I could watch his establishing shots and his fluid action all day, to say nothing of his gift in putting forward Milla Jovovich as, with Jason Statham, the only credible modern action star in English-language film.
