If you’re a fan of Leon you’re going to love this film.
Definitely worth a watch
Decent. It never achieves the bone crushing awesomeness of The Raid or the incredible cinematography and story structure of Oldboy but it's for sure in that same ballpark. Absolutely worth a watch.
Why is this movie so amazing? I don’t get it. It was so boring to me. I had to turn it off halfway through because nothing was happening. Am I missing something? What separates this from any of the millions of other crime dramas out there? It just wasn’t for me. No thanks. Yawn.
